  1. Here are my answers. I'm not telling if I looked them up beforehand. But definitely some of them I knew without consulting any reference material. You'll have to trust me on that.

    1: Yes, 43 is a prime number.

    2: As a prime number, the only factors of 43 are 1 and 43.

    3: Roman numerally, 43 = XLIII

    4: No, longitude lines do not circle. This is because they are designated as degrees from 0 to 180 in each direction. Once longitude 43W reaches the poles, it changes to longitude 137E.

    5: The Gospel of John is the 43rd book of the bible.

    6: There are five books of the Bible with at least 43 verses: Genesis, the Psalms, Isaiah, Jeremiah, & Ezekiel. All Old Testament. Job comes up just short at 42.

    7: I read the whole Bible and I was unable to find any occurrences of forty-three or forty and three.

    8: Numbers is a census of the Tribes of Israel.
    (full disclosure, that was my unaided guess. The actual answer is Reubenites.)

    9: The Gem state, Idaho, is the 43rd United State.

    10: George W. Bush was 43rd president of the US.

    11: Yuck. Bdellium is an aromatic gum secreted from a tree. A Wal-Mart version of Myrrh.

    12: 41 + 2 = 43. All are prime numbers.

    13: Well, odd numbered book pages are on the right hand side. The number 43 would designate the 43rd page.

    14: I'm going to say North. Odd numbered interstates run N-S. Exits are numbered beginning at the southern state border and increase moving north. Exit 43 should lie at any point between Marker 42 and 43.

    15: I'm going to go with November 19, which is 42 days before January 1 in a standard year.

    16: My cardinal age is 43. Ordinally, I am beginning my 44th year.

    17: See answer 4: Longitude 137E.

    18: Number 44 in base 43 would be written as 11.

    19: Number 43 in binary is 101,011. I did this manually.

    20: 43 minutes before 3am is 2:17am.
