I had to look it up. Even then I thought it was more regional trivia... unless you speak Dutch ;^)

ok, well someone else take it.

it might be seen as a regional thing, but i'd bet most new yorkers have heard of it. and there's a few of us. also, columbia university has it's "c" logo painted there, so anyone who's watched ivy league football might have known.

It's Dutch for wolf spider. New Yorkers deep fry them, then spray with Windex. Am I right?

ok, here's a less regional one.

why is/was lead used in paints?

artists can still get leaded paints, and it's still used in some industrial applications.
