I got four plus the truth or crap!

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I got two right, which is impressive for me. My excuse: my age, I don't think I'm old enough to know these trivias. I guess whatever helps me sleep at night right?

I think cockroaches will inherit the earth, those things are so resilient. You just can't kill them!
