Trivia 2/25

trivia 2/25
Football great Walter Peyton missed only one game in his entire (13 years) NFL career !

1. how many piping pipers were mentioned in "the twelve days of Christmas"?
2. what the very apt name of the world's fastest birds?
3. which battle of the revolutionary war was fought near Chad's ford,
4. where would i need to travel to in order to swim in montego bay?
5. in which movie thriller does one Marion Crane come to grief?
6. what body of water surrounds the faroe islands?
7. what was Iran called, before it was called Iran?
8. what caused the disfigurement of the face of the phantom of the opera ?
Louis Pasteur discovered cures for anthrax, silkworm disease and rabies,
along with his better-known work.

1. eleven
3. battle of Brandywine
5. psycho
6. Norwegian sea

since Pasteur was not a physician, many people in the medical field laughed
at his theories that such a thing as germs exists.
luckily, he continued his work and did more to further medical progress than
perhaps anyone else of his time.
and, of course, he invented pasteurization, which we still use today to keep
milk from spoiling.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
