Statistically, the tallest people in the world, as measured by country, are the Dutch. The average height for all adults for the Netherlands is 6 feet 1 inch (1.85 m).

1. What was the occupation of Dom Pierre Perignon when he developed the champagne process ?

It's a crime to sell or possess chewing gum in Singapore.
1. He was a Monk
2. "Crocodile Rock"
3. Plums
4. Kleenex "paper Handkerchiefs"
5. Michael Stipe
6. Pulsar
7. Evinrude
8. The Symbionese Liberation Army
The law was created because people disposed of gum incorrectly by sticking under places like chairs or tables. Incorrect disposal of gum led to this law banning gum. Chewing gum is banned in Singapore under the "Regulation of Imports and Exports (Chewing Gum) Regulations." Except for chewing gum of therapeutic value, the "importing" of chewing gum into Singapore is absolutely banned.
