The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
What’s the range of the average human voice?
I’ll except either the number in octaves or in single notes.
One and one half octaves, or about 12 whole notes on the piano.
That’s not much is it.. Try it for yourself. Start singing as low as you
can. Then pretend you are doing a scale and start counting each note
as you go higher. You’ll peak at about 12. I’ve been singing for over
40 years and I barely can go a few notes beyond 12. Some singers
have 4 octave range or better – really! – wow!
I had no correct eligible answers –
I note that no one knew this!

to this art question*
Time for an Elvis question. And this one is a bit of a true detective story.
We all know Elvis loved guns. One time he was stopped at airport
security when the buzzer went off. Elvis pointed at his huge belt
buckle. And security let him through. But the King was actually packing
heat. WHERE on his person, was Elvis carrying a gun?
Good luck puzzlers!
