Trivia 6/13

TRIVIA 6/13

DID YOU KNOW...
Cows release some 100 million tons of hydrocarbon annually - by releasing gas. To give you an idea of how much gas a cow emits: if the gas of 10 cows could be captured, it would provide heating for a small house for a year.
But unlike what you think, cows release hydrocarbon mostly by burping.

1. What's the common name for the seed pods of conifers ?
2. The "Fosbury Flop" is a style developed in what Olympic competition ?
3. Where on your body is the Metatarsal Arch ?
4. What is "Pulchritude" ?
5. What was Beijing formerly called ?
6. Who was nicknamed "The Brown Bomber" ?
7. Which European city has a Disney Theme Park nearby ?
8. What's the common term used to describe members of the Unification Church ?
TRUTH OR CRAP ??
The distance between bases on a Major League baseball diamond is precisely 60 feet, 8 inches.

That would be the distance from the pitcher's mound to home plate; the distance between bases is 90 feet.

Good morning, lt.

Did good on #s 1, 3, 7, & 8. Trivia, disgusting!
Crap - it seemed alittle far.

Are "moonies" still around? I haven't seen in years.
They used to come into local bars and Newark & JFK airports years ago. But I haven't in years, so I have no idea.

Thanks, lt.
