Trivia 10/23

trivia 10/23

1. In what Saturday morning TV offering would find a robot named Rosie ?
2. What's the only country that borders on both Israel and Libya ?
3. What did Tommie Smith and John Carlos do at the 1968 Olympics that raised eyebrows and made headlines ?
4. What book begins; "Of Man's first disobedience, and the fruit /Of that forbidden tree" ?
5. What was Katherine Ross' character's name in the 1969 film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid ?
(Bonus; name the hit song that came off the soundtrack...)
6. Name the two Los Angeles streets mentioned in Tom Petty's Free Fallin' ...
7. What British Icon was transplanted to Lake Havasu City, Arizona in 1971 ?
8. In 1944, who was the intended victim of the "July 20 Plot" ?
Like the ones left by our fingers, the prints of our tongues are just as unique and individual.
1. The Jetsons
2. Egypt
3. Raised the clenched-fist "Black Power" salute on the medals stand.
4. Paradise Lost
5. Etta Place (Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head )
6. Mulholland Drive and Ventura Boulevard
7. London Bridge
8. Adolph Hitler
No two tongues are exactly alike. Luckily, those aren't the prints of choice when it comes to identification- the ink wouldn't sit well on the taste buds.


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