Trivia 4/4

This won't ever happen again.




Did you know ??
X-RAYS OF THE MONA LISA SHOW THAT THERE ARE THREE DIFFERENT VERSIONS UNDERNEATH
1. in what american city will you find the buffalo bill cody old west museum?
2. what part of a black hole is referred to as the singularity?
3. who was the only person to win an oscar whose name was oscar?
4. what plant produces the world's largest seed?
5. bill blass was president of what council from 1979 to 1981?
6. who starred in the 1962 movie, "the miracle worker"?
TRUTH OR CRAP ??
the grand canyon is the biggest canyon in the world.

1. cody, wyoming (??)
2. THE EXACT CENTER
3. OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II
4. the coco de mer palm (palm tree??)
5. fashion designers of america (??)
6. PATTY DUKE
CRAP !!
the world's biggest canyons are submerged under the world's oceans.
in the water of alaska's bering sea alone, there are seven giant canyons, some measuring more than 200 miles in length and 9,000 feet deep.
compare those whoppers to the measly grand canyon, which is just ten miles wide, 1 mile deep and 250 miles long.

I got 2, 4, 5 and 6 and guessed it was crap but didn't know the real answer. LOL. When a question is worded like that sometimes you just KNOW what the answer will be.

Thanks luckytrim.

i missed 3 and 5.

btw, the time thing, the way it's written, happens every hundred years.

04/05/1906, 04/05/2006, etc...



and did you know that stonehenge in england is actually the third henge built on that site. recent documents have described that there were big bad wolves that were native to salisbury plain in neolithic times, and the first 2 henges were made of straw and sticks, respectively.
