trivia 2/20

Did you know.

With just 5.1 people per square mile, Wyoming is the least-populated state,
ranked number 51 behind the District of Columbia, according to the latest
census. However, Alaska actually has less people per square mile with 1.1
but has more people overall.
1. how many of the first eight super bowls were won by the AFL team?
2. what city was home to sun records?
3. three states have used the nick-name "sunshine state"; name them.
4. what's the name of cartoon sailor popeye's adopted son?
5. how many bones are in the human body?
6. how many white castle hamburgers does a pound of ground beef yield?

2. memphis (nashville)
3. FLORIDA-NEW MEXICO-south dakota

CRAP !!
on may 31, 1975, at wembly stadium, evel successfully jumped over 13
double-decker busses, but crashed upon landing, breaking his pelvis.
assisted by handlers, he staggered to the microphone, announcing he would
never jump again. yet, less than five months later, knievel successfully
jumped over fourteen greyhound busses at king's island, ohio.
his last big stunt came a year later, jumping a shark tank at the chicago
amphitheater.
he crashed, broke both arms, and suffered a concussion.

I remember watching the commercials for the shark tank jump with anticipation. We sat waiting for his big jump, through all the hype that evening, only to learn that he would not be jumping.

I can remember watching the Snake River Canyon live (or live*ish*) too. I still have an Evel Knievel motorcycle launcher in my display case here at home.
