Trivia 11/21

Trivia 11/21

Did you know…

In 1879, Anna Bates of Canada, who was 7 feet, 5 inches tall, gave birth to a baby weighing 23 pounds, 12 ounces-the heaviest birth weight on record.

1. Name the fictional Doctor who lived on spidermonkey Island.
2. Which US president had a pet badger?
3. By what collective title are Caspar, Balthasar, and Melchior better known?
4. What was the hero (voiced by Woody Allen) called in the animated film, "Antz"?
5. What famous 50's Pro Basketball player was nick-named the "Houdini of the hard-wood"?
6. What affectation caused people to refer to Veronica Lake as the "peek-a-boo girl"?
truth or crap ??
Hall of Famer George Sisler, who held baseball's single-season hit record until Ichoro Suzuki broke it, suffered from double-vision.

1. Dr. Doolittle
4. z-4195
5. bob cousy
Sisler, a first baseman for the St. Louis Browns, hit .407 in 1920, getting 257 hits, a record that held up for 84 years. Two years after setting that record, a severe bout of the flu damaged his sinuses so badly that he was left with permanent double vision. He sat out the whole 1923 season, but trained himself to hit the "two balls" he saw crossing the plate. Astoundingly, he batted over .300 in six of his last seven seasons


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