Trivia 9/25

trivia 9/25
DID YOU KNOW...
In 2011, 27 baby American baby girls were named Khaleesi.
It means 'Queen' in a fictional language from 'Game of Thrones' .

1. After the Civil War Battle of Fort Donelson, General Grant was given a
nickname by the Northern press that would stick with him throughout the rest
of the war. What did the press say the initials 'U.S.' stood for in Grant's
name?
2. Artemis is usually associated with what celestial body(s)?
3. The name of this gas comes from Greek for "water-former."
4. There are 12 major Gods in Greek Mythology ; Name six to get credit...
(Bonus; Name all 12...)
5. The Winter Palace in St Petersburg, Russia, is part of what museum?
6. If you wanted to see a toucan in the wild, which continent would you want
to go to ?
7. Can you name the two male leads in "The Cable Guy" ?
8. Name the children's author, who wrote "Matilda" and "George's Marvellous
Medicine"...

TRUTH OR CRAP ??
Wolves have the highest kill rate of all of earth’s land predators at 85%.

1. 'Unconditional Surrender'
2. the Moon
3. Hydrogen
4. Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Hestia, Apollo, Artemis, Ares,
Aphrodite, Hephaestus and Hermes.
5. the Hermitage
6. Central or South America
7. Jim Carrey and Mathew Broderick
8. Roald Dahl

CRAP !!
That 85% kill rate I mentioned is the highest, that’s true. But it’s Africa’s
wild dog that achieves it, not lions, not cheetahs and not wolves.
Lions get just 17 to 19 %, Tigers and polar bears get just 10%, and wolves,
14%. Feral domestic cats achieve 32%, leopards about 14%, while peregrine
falcons record a success rate of 47%.
