Trivia 7/7

trivia 7/7
DID YOU KNOW...
You can’t tour the top-secret facility where the Hormel Corporation makes Spam, but fans of the canned meat can visit the museum next door. Check out the giant Spamburger sandwich (with its own 17-foot spatula), visit the 3,390-can “Wall of Spam,” put on hard hats and work on a simulated Spam production line, and marvel at the 4,700 cans that document 70 years of Spam’s worldwide popularity.
Be sure to see: The talking wax figure of company founder George Hormel.



1. To which of the fifty must I travel to visit the SPAM museum ?
2. Name the TV personality who's in the Guinness Book of records for having the most on-camera time in television.
(Hint; During his 20+ year (and still going) career, He was The "Sidekick" on the Joey Bishop Show.)
3. What was Buddy Holly's more formal first name ?
4. In 1949, Siam changed it's name to........what ?
5. What was the nationality of the founder of the International Red Cross ?
6. Where in the world must I travel to visit the deep-water port of Valetta ?
7. John D. Rockefeller made his fortune in what commodity ?
8. What group recorded the Heavy Metal classic, Paranoid ?
TRUTH OR CRAP ??
The glowing abdomen of a firefly emits very low levels of harmful UV rays.

CRAP !!
The cold glow of the firefly is the result of a chemical reaction sparked by a message from the bug's nervous system.
