Trivia 12/21

trivia 12/21
The Parking Meter was invented in Oklahoma City in 1935, by one Carl Magee.
Early models look very much like the modern ones: few items have changed less than the Parking Meter.

1. Who was the Pony Express's most famous rider ?
2. In what country did the Waltz originate ?
3. Take a Guess;
How many grams of tomatoes are used to produce 100 grams of Heinz Ketchup ?
4. Who is the famous Band member son of Betty Nesmith, the inventor of "Liquid Paper" ?
5. Which bird species drinks only salt water ?
6. What revolutionary fastening material's name is formed by combining and shortening the French for Velvet and Hook ?
7. what were the four original flavors of Jell-O ?
8. What two world leaders eased tensions through "Ping Pong Diplomacy" ?
The Record Industry Association of America's "Diamond" certification requires sales of ten million.
1. "Buffalo" Bill Cody
2. Austria
3. 126 grams
4. Monkee Michael Nesmith
5. the Albatross
6. Velcro (Velour and Crochet)
7. Strawberry, Raspberry, Orange and Lemon
8. Mao and Nixon
.........Sales totaling 500,000 units for albums and 1 million units for singles earns the "Gold" record; 1 million albums or 2 million singles earns the "Platinum" award, and sales. In 1989, the sales thresholds for singles were reduced to 500,000 for gold and 1,000,000 for platinum, reflecting a decrease in sales of singles.
The "Diamond" certification is still ten million or more sales, whether album or single.
