Some More interesting Trivia.

I like trivia and facts, so I think I will list some questions and see how many of you know the answer.  Yes, I know I have done this before, but don't worry, I will use different facts.  I will list the question first and answer them at the end.  Don't cheat and look at the answers, but let me know how many of them you got right.

1.   Between 1912 and 1948, in what competitions were architecture, music, painting, and sculpture part of?

2.   What state only has two escalators?

3.   Is it true or false that no two snowflakes are exactly the same?

4.   When Disneyland opened in 1955, what year in the future was it designed to look like?

5.   What do you call a group of pugs (the dogs)?

6.   How many of you watch Bob Ross's show on educational TV?  I do and even though he isn't with us anymore (he is now painting the clouds in the real sky) I enjoy his show.  So, the question is, what percentage of his paintings had at least one "happy" cloud?

7.   Is there always news everyday?

8.   How did Ben & Jerry get started making ice cream?

9.   Pablo Esobar's Medellin Cartel spent how much money each month on rubber bands just to hold all their cash?

10.  A restaurant serves a veggie burger topped with crispy strips of bacon.  What is the name of the restaurant and what is the name of burger? 

*****************

1.   The Olympics.

2.   Wyoming.

3.   False, in a 1988 Wisconsin snowstorm, a scientist found two identical snow crystals.

4.   1986

5.   A grumble.

6.   Forty-four percent had happy clouds.

7.   On a day in April, 1930, the BBC reported, "There is no news."  Then they played piano music, instead.

8.   They took a five dollar correspondence course by Penn State.  (They split the course between them).

9.    They spent $2500.00 a month on rubber bands.  That is a lot of stretch. . .

10.   The restaurant name:  FATBURGER and the burger is called the "Hypocrite".  I guess the bacon isn't considered a vegetable. . .

OK, I hope you had fun with this little quiz.  Now, you all have a great day, you hear?

  1. I didn't get even one of those right... (thought maybe Alaska had the lack of escalators)... Been to the Ben & Jerry's in Vermont but missed this one, too. Never even heard of Bob Ross.... well heck, you get the picture. Still, I enjoy your quizzes.... even if I'm at the tail-end of the class ;-)

    1. Don't feel bad, I only got one right. I almost got the Bob Ross question right but I thought the percentage was a little higher. Bob Ross is a painter who's shows are still being shown on public television. Since you don't have a TV, I can understand why you have never heard of him. I bet a lot of your friends who like to paint has heard of him.

  2. I thought I had at least two right, but you blew that away with telling me that WI found two identical snowflakes. Great Trivia questions, made me learn something new.

    1. I may be interested in that bridge if it is a toll bridge with a troll under it.
