Trivia 4/27

trivia 4/27
DID YOU KNOW...
Cephalalgia is the medical term for a headache.


1. Name the 1980 film that tells the story of Jake LaMotta ...
2. Who Am I ?
I was, at one time, a Teenage Heart-throb. My biggest hit was my first,
"Teenage Crush"
I recorded sixteen singles, ten albums and acted in eight films, including "The Longest Day".
My career was flying along until, in 1965, I divorced my wife.
Big mistake ! Her father was a very influential super star, and he saw that I never
worked again, at least not in the big time.
I managed to land a role in "The Violent Ones" in 1967, but I "retired" and
moved to Hawaii that year.
3. Who Wrote That ??

but grief an' pain, For promis'd joy!"

d. - Robert Burns
4. What does DNS mean in information technology?
5. To which of the Fifty must I travel to see the Petrified Forest, or
search for the Lost Dutchman gold mine ?
6. What was the name of the landing craft that Neil Armstrong stepped down
from on the Moon ?
7. "The Color of Money" was a (delayed) sequel to what movie?
8. District Attorney Harvey Dent became which Super Villain in Gotham City ?

TRUTH OR CRAP ??
The youngest Medal of Honor winner was a 15 year-old lanky Tennessee farm

I got 1, 3, 4, and 8 correct. I didn't even record my attempt yesterday because I did so bad. But this is a little more decent. I should have gotten 6 and 7 but I blame it on brain fog!
