Trivia 1/20

1. what is the subject of harlan ellison's book, "the glass teat"?
2. who advertised his product by placing a six-foot tall electric pickle in times square?
3. what did william henry harrison do as president that had not been done before him?
4. in the "batman" saga, what was the name of bruce wayne's ward?
5. name the greek who took medicine from superstition to science.
6. what number did joe namath wear?
sherlock holmes never said," elementary, my dear watson."
1. television (??)
the famous character, created by sir arthur conan doyle, never spoke the phrase. the closest he comes is in the adventure, "the crooked man", when the famous detective makes several deductions about his assistant based on dr. watson's appearance. watson exclaims, "excellent!!" whereto holmes replies, "elementary."


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

3 right and the bonus, though I like to use that phrase all the time, even if it's a bit off from what Mr. Holmes himself actually said
