2. What two-word term is used to describe the top speed reached by a free-falling object ?
3. For what movie role is actor Verne Troyer best-known ?

(Bonus ; The names of his two pet turtles ??)
5. What's the nickname of the Indianapolis Motor speedway ?
6. The Alan Brady Show is a TV show within what TV show ?
7. On January 28, 1985, forty-five recording artists gathered at A&M Studios in Hollywood to record what Michael Jackson / Lionel Richie song ?

3. Mini-Me
4. Moby Dick (Cuff and Link)
5. The Brickyard
6. The Dick Van Dyke Show
7. We Are the World

Generations of children continue to nudge the coiled toy down staircases. Others use the metal or plastic gadgets to learn scientific lessons. Whatever the use, Slinky toys are still produced, sold, and played with world-wide.

Crap day for me, lt.
Only could remember #s 6 & 7. #1's Art Deco/oscars was a cool clue, but didn't know the rest about the sword/knight or reel of spokes. And I thought CRAP was CRAP but didn't even venture to guess.
C'est la Vie!
