I've just played the Quiz of the Hour, Healthy Pregnancy, quiz #142336.

Obviously, as a man, I can't be expected to understand everything about this subject, but could one of the ladies out there please explain the relevance of the picture of a tank (military variety) on the front page of the quiz?

I would have thought a picture of a beached whale would have been more appropriate

lol Lones! I'd agree with you on that.

Maybe Terry can tell us what made the 'tank image' come to mind for this quiz, dippo.

hmm looks like "reproduction and genetics" category has the wrong image link for all its quizzes.

I dunno. I looked and felt a bit tank-like.

I vaguely recall this being discussed before when someone pointed out that the early WW1 tanks came in male and female versions. Interesting discussion here
