A reverse mortgage is available to people who own their homes and are 62 or older. There are many pros and cons associated with the practice (including a loss of equity in your home).
7. A popular Scottish cookie/biscuit: BREA

Answer: shortbread

Shortbread (also called "shorties") was invented in Scotland. It is one of the few cookies that doesn't use leavening (such as baking soda or baking powder), making it more dense.

An "open secret" is something that is *supposed* to be a secret but is known by many. For example, it may be an "open secret" that someone is engaging in criminal activity--it's supposed to be secret, but many people may know about it.

Answer: 15 minutes

American artist Andy Warhol once said, "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes." This quote has also been attributed to museum director Pontus HultÚn and photographer Nat Finkelstein--although both of them claim Warhol was involved.
