The water of Angel Falls (the World's highest) in Venezuela drops 3,212 feet (979 meters). They are 15 times higher than Niagara Falls.

1. What’s the more common term for "myocardial infarction"?

3. Do you remember what comedian Lou Costello's catchphrase was?
4. Name the Pittsburgh Steeler who caught the "Immaculate Reception".
5. Do you recall the name of the Rock group in the movie "Airheads"?
6. Which one of Santa's reindeer comes first alphabetically?
7. All of the visible clocks in the movie "Pulp Fiction" are stuck on what time?

The expression "talking shop" originally referred to the gossip that the Max Factor
Beauty shop in Hollywood was famous for.
1. Heart Attack
2. Ron Howard
3. "I'M A BAD BOY"
5. "the lone rangers"
7. 4:20
8. Insects
The expression's origins go back to 1741, when the Woolwich Arsenal converted one of it's workshop buildings to house Britain's new Royal Military Academy. For that reason, the RMA was often referred to as "the Shop", and any military strategy discussion among students and grads was called, "talking shop".

I did especially poorly today. I only got #s 1, 6, and 8. I should have gotten #s 2 and 3. I never saw "Airheads" or "Pulp Fiction" so I don't feel bad not knowing those two.
