trivia 2/7

trivia 2/7



DID YOU KNOW...
A "clue" originally meant a ball of thread. This is why one is said to "unravel" the clues of a mystery.

1. Which automobile company was the first to offer 8-track tape players in their cars and trucks?
2. The act of snapping one's fingers has a name; what is it?
3. About how many times a second does the bumblebee flap it's wings?
4. Established in 1803, what is the USA's oldest running newspaper?
5. How many different animal shapes in the "Animal Crackers" collection?
6. At what speed does the average raindrop fall?
7. While we're on the subject of speed; What is the average duration of a single blink of the human eye?
8. Where on your hand would you find the "lunula"?
NOTICE; Truth or Crap is on hold for a bit.

Got 1 and 4. Sucky day for me.

Question? I thought the lunula was the "moon" above your cuticle on your fingernail. If it is really the tip of your fingernail, does anyone know the name for the "moon" part? Thanks!
