CUPPA QUESTIONS – ANSWER SHEET How to play: Cut out the questions from QUESTIONS_PAGE1.pdf and QUESTIONS_PAGE2.pdf, and put them in a cup. Let your friends each select a question from the cup, and read aloud. Ask your friends: Dragon or Braggin'?

Check it out at www.moltx.org!) 1.BRAGGIN' (false) – The doctrine of preemption, which states "injured consumers [.] are barred from suing in state court when the products that hurt them have met federal standards" applies to medical devices like tampons, not medications like Phenergan.

BRAGGIN' (false) – Alice Walker was describing her thoughts and feelings about the possibility of nuclear war.

DRAGON (true) – Not just true, but very true, totally dragon! Although tampon-related toxic shock is extremely rare, cases still do occur.

DRAGON (true) – 189,000 women have received free menstrual pads. “We’re keeping girls in school,” said Ms. Tobiko. If women get education, “we want nothing else,” she added. “We will fight our way into every field, but we need the main key - which is education.” http://theunknowncandidate.blogspot.com/ 2007/04/inspiration-from-kenya.html [This is a bit dated – check out www.lunapads.com/pads4girls.html - note: Menstrual Monday not affiliated with Lunapads!] 10.
