Trivia 10/21

trivia 10/21
DID YOU KNOW......
The roar that we hear when we place a seashell next to our ear is not the
ocean, but rather the sound of blood surging through the veins in the ear.
Any cup-shaped object placed over the ear produces the same effect.
1. do you remember the name of the school teacher in the "legend of sleepy
hollow" story?
2. what date is referred to as the ides of march?
3. how many laps long is the Indianapolis 500?
4. which famous comedian from the fifties and sixties had a theme song
titled "inka-dinka-doo"?
5. the first manned module to land on the moon was named "eagle"; what was
the name of the second?
6. what are the words behind the initials, "i.q."?
7. in the 1937 all-star game, this giant's southpaw struck out, in
succession, babe ruth, Lou Gerhig, jimmy Foxx, al Simmons and Joe Cronin ;
name him.
(Hint; He shares a last name with the discoverer of galaxies)
8. do you recall the name of the robot on TV's, "get smart"?

Sorry, Barbara ; as you've probably noticed, I'm kinda Bi-Polar when it comes to upper / lower case.............. that being said, I.Q. and i.q are both still eye-kew.
