Trivia 3/24

?? 3/24

1. complete this charles de gaul quote;
"one can't impose unity out of the blue on a country that has 265 kinds of _______!"
2. what's the nick-name of the times square news marquee?
3. by what name was veterans day known before 1954?
4. aaron burr was vice president under which president?
5. name the couple involved in the wedding that took place on the tonight show, dec. 17, 1969.
6. name the 1967 movie that featured a philadelphia police detective named virgil tibbs.
on average, 9,000 earthquakes take place worldwide every day.
2. the zipper (??)
you may not feel or hear them, but earthquakes are taking place all over the world at this very minute. most of these temblors register only 1-2 on the richter scale. on average every year, the USGS reports 18 major earthquakes measuring between 7.0 and 7.9 and one extremely large quake measuring 8.0 or larger.


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

i missed #'s 4 and 6 today.

and we have an earthquake computer in our evening news bureau. it is a display of the globe, and you can zoom around at any time of the day and see where earthquakes are registering, marked by concentric red circles.

The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

I get email updates from USGS whenever there is an earthquake over (I think) 5.5 anywhere in the world. It's sometimes quite surprising how many emails I get each day. There are always at LEAST a couple.
