trivia 1/16

trivia 1/16
Tough day today, folks !!

Did you know...
Not Surprisingly, the 2010 Lemelson - MIT survey of teens shows that teachers
contribute the most to our society's well-being.
What was surprising was that only 32% of those polled chose teachers;
Doctors were second, with 23%, and scientists rounded out the top three with
19 %.
Politicians garnered only 2 % of the votes.

1. What is pop singer Brandy's last name?
2. how about Wilt Chamberlain's formal first name?
3. how long did Marco Polo's journey to the orient last?
4. what's the structure depicted on the $50 bill?
5. for what classic horror film did actor John Larroquette provide the chilling narration-twice?
6. do you have a clue as to the largest antique ever sold?
7. what Oscar-winning actress is a direct descendant of-and bears the same last name as- one of the signers of the declaration of independence?
8. how fast is hypersonic?
Despite being mortal enemies, Chaing Kai-shek and Mao Zedong were also brothers-in-law.

1. Norwood
2. Norman
6. the London Bridge
7. Glenda Jackson
8. Mach 6 or more
Both Mao and Chaing married multiple times, and had many mistresses,
but were never brothers-in-law.

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
