Trivia 4/20

trivia 4/20
The second-most reported case of occupational injury is hearing loss...

1. do you remember the first names of juvenile sleuths the hardy boys?
2. Movie Mogul Jack Woltz wakes up in bed with Khartoum, and immediately starts screaming-who is Khartoum, and what movie are we talking about?
3. what's the first name of Charlie brown's only sibling?
4. who was, so far, the only president to report a u.f.o. sighting?
5. can you name the star who was the top movie box office draw from 1955 to 1965?
(Hint; it's a male..)
6. which country do "lets" call home?
7. which island was home to the mythical labyrinth?
8. what was the last year that penny postcards cost a penny?
A Motorola employee launched the first Cell Phone call in 1973 ; It was placed to Motorola's rival, AT&T's Bell Labs.
1. Frank and Joe
2. Khartoum was his prize thoroughbred (only the head was in the bed) - the movie was "The Godfather".
3. Sally
5. John Wayne
6. Latvia
8. 1952
Martin Cooper ( later the chairman, CEO, and co-founder of ArrayComm Inc) placed that call on April 3, 1973, while general manager of Motorola's Communications Systems Division. It was the incarnation of his vision for personal wireless communications, distinct from cellular car phones.
That first call, placed to Cooper's rival at AT&T's Bell Labs from the streets of New York City, caused a fundamental technology and communications market shift toward the person and away from the place.
