trivia 9/20
Did you know…
The USA's Nimitz class nuclear aircraft carriers are the largest warships in the world and
cost $4.5 billion each. They're about as long as the Empire State Building is tall, weigh 97,000 tons, and are powered by two nuclear reactors. When deployed, they may have as many as 5,500 onboard.

1. what's the term for the revolutionary war militia members who were ready to fight at a
moments notice?
2. name Russia's "big" ballet company.
3. what is the term that refers to whales leaping out of the water and falling back with a
big splash?
4. pertussis vaccine is given to treat what malady?
5. do you recall the name of the widow of Ernie kovacs?
6. in what silent classic did Charlie Chaplin make his debut?
7. Of which Ballet is Prince Siegfried a hero ?
8. If a dish is cooked Au Gratin, what ingredient is used ?

when a major league pitcher throws a baseball at 95 MPH, it takes only four-tenths of a second for the ball to travel from his hand to the Catcher's glove.
3. breaching
4. whooping cough
7. Swan Lake
8. Cheese
the batter must decide what kind of pitch is thrown and whether he should swing by the
time the ball has traveled thirty feet. from that point, the ball will arrive at the plate a
quarter of a second later.

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