Trivia 3/24

trivia 3/24
If all the packages of cigarettes smoked by Americans last year were laid end to end, they would circle the earth twenty-one times.
1. What percentage of all wines exported from the USA are California wines ?
2. If I suffer from Entomophobia, what sort of critters do I fear ?
3. Can you name the only person to be nominated for an Oscar, Grammy, Golden Globe, and Nobel Prize ?
(Bonus; which of these, if any, has he won?)
4. David Morrell wrote the books that became the basis for what Sylvester Stallone series of films ?
5. Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx are original members of what rock group ?
6. What's the longest unit of measure in Astronomy ?
7. What pasta's name, when translated to English, means "little turnips" ?

Only 3.5 percent of the entire land area of Egypt is inhabited.
1. 90%
3. bono (U2) (grammy)
5. motley crue
7. ravioli
There are, furthermore, parts of Egypt where the population density is more than 250,000 people per square mile. In fact, while the country itself measures 287,000 square miles, more than twice the area of California, the entire population - about 39 million people - lives in an area about the size of three Connecticuts.
