trivia 7/2

trivia 7/2

Last year (2009), the U.S.A. consumed enough bottled water products to make a chain of empties that would circle the globe at the equator 190 times.

1. what is the national summer sport of Canada?
2. which of the fifty bills itself as the Magnolia State?
3. can you name the three Younger brothers, famous western train and bank
4. what year saw the end of England's Victorian era?
5. which city is farther south ; Key West, Florida or Honolulu, Hawaii ?
6. what Caribbean island did President Reagan order invaded in 1983?
7. what year saw the invasion of Kuwait by saddam Hussein's army?
8. what was Thomas Edison's last patented invention?
(Hint; it was probably his smallest, after the filament in his light bulb...)
British postage stamps do not display the country of origin.
1. Lacrosse
3. Bob, Cole, and James
4. 1901
5. Honolulu
7. 1990
8. phonograph needle

on may 1, 1840, great Britain introduced the first issued postage stamp.
the government didn't see any reason to include the country of origin, since
no other stamps existed. to this day, only the u.k. doesn't include the
name of the country on it's stamps.
