trivia 5/21
In 2008, just 10 percent of US births were to teens, a decrease of three percent since 1990. Meanwhile, nearly 14 percent of mothers of newborns were 35 or older, a five percent increase during that same period.

1. Which US President initiated a "Great Society" program ?
2. How is Deoxyribonucleic acid less formally represented in print ?
3. Who won a Grammy for Tears from Heaven ?
4. Fill in the blank;

5. Which London street used to be associated with newspapers ?
6. What term describes arranging text on screen to fit around a picture ?
7. "S" is the symbol for which chemical element ?
8. What Year Was It .....

The Roadrunner, a Southwestern American Ground bird of the Cuckoo family, is the fastest land-speed bird .
1. Lyndon B. Johnson
2. DNA
3. Eric Clapton
4. The Dead
5. Fleet Street
6. Wrapping
7. Sulphur
8. 1984

The Roadrunner can travel over 20 MPH, but that pales in comparison to the Ostrich of Africa.
The ostrich can achieve a land speed of over 45 MPH, the top land speed of any bird.

The egg of an ostrich requires a force of 120 pounds to break it open.
Ostrich eggs are the largest of all eggs (and by extension, the yolk is the largest single cell), though they are actually the smallest eggs relative to the size of the adult bird. on average they are 15 centimeters (5.9 in) long, 13 centimeters (5.1 in) wide, and weigh 1.4 kilograms (3.1 lb), over 20 times the weight of a chicken egg.
Ostriches reared entirely by humans may not direct their courtship behavior at other Ostriches, but toward their human keepers
