What powdered drink did NASA make famous after it was sent into space?

Tang

 

7 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

TANG

Answer: Tang is a fruit-flavored drink that was formulated by food scientist William A. Mitchell in 1957. Sales of Tang were poor until NASA selected it for the menu on John Glenn's Mercury flight in February 1962, and on subsequent Gemini missions. Since then it has been closely associated with the U.S. manned spaceflight program, and created the misconception that Tang was invented for the space program. The creator of Tang also invented Pop Rocks, Cool Whip, a form of instant-set Jell-O, and other convenience foods.

ps:I remember drinking that stuff when younger!! Much younger :rollingsmile:

Which country was the first to give all adult women the right to vote?

New Zealand

NEW ZEALAND

Answer: New Zealand became the first nation to grant women the right to vote. On this day in 1893, with the signing of the Electoral Bill by Governor Lord Glasgow, New Zealand became the first country in the world to grant national voting rights to women. The bill was the result of years of effort by suffrage campaigners, led by Kate Sheppard. In recent years Sheppard’s contribution to New Zealand’s history has been acknowledged on the $10 note. New Zealand women first went to the polls in the national elections of November 1893.

James Lipton

JAMES LIPTON

Answer: James Lipton is the executive producer, writer and host of the Bravo cable television series Inside the Actors Studio, which debuted in 1994. The host, 86, revealed he was a pimp in Paris in the 1950s. Lipton, who wrote of his experience in the book "Inside Inside," explained that a woman he met while in France introduced him to the world prostitution. "It was only a few years after the war," he says. "Paris was different then, still poor. Men couldn't get jobs and, in the male chauvinist Paris of that time, the women couldn't get work at all. It was perfectly respectable for them to go into le milieu."

Which mascot was created by the Minnesota Valley Canning Company?

Jolly Green Giant

JOLLY GREEN  GIANT

Answer: With his toga-style outfit of leaves, and giant stature, the Jolly Green Giant has been a mascot for the Green Giant canned vegetable company long before it was named Green Giant. Known for presiding over the vegetables grown in his valley, the Green Giant was so popular that the Minnesota Valley Canning Company changed its name to match their mascot. The original mascot was a white (not green) man holding a giant pea pod in his arms. His appearance changed in 1935 thanks to the advertising company that created other food mascots such as Tony the Tiger, and the Pillsbury Doughboy.

BENEDICT  ARNOLD

Answer: On this day in 1780, during the American Revolution, American General Benedict Arnold met with British Major John Andre to discuss handing over West Point to the British, in return for the promise of a large sum of money and a high position in the British army. The plot was foiled and Arnold, a former American hero, became synonymous with the word “traitor.” Arnold, fled to the enemy side and later moved to England. He died in 1801, and was buried at St. Mary’s Church in Battersea, London. As a result of a clerical error, his remains were removed to an unmarked mass grave a century later.

What determines the sex of newborn alligators?

Egg Temperature

 

4 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

EGG TEMPERATURE

Answer: Temperature is the deciding factor in an alligator`s gender, according to Dr. Paul Cardeilhac, a professor of veterinary medicine at the University of Florida. Alligators and some turtles are known to display temperature-dependent sex determination (TSD), where the temperature of the environment in which the eggs are raised in determines the sex of the individual. For example in the alligator's eggs, incubation at 34ºC and above produces mostly males, while incubation at 30ºC and below produces mostly females.

What is the official sport of Maryland?

Jousting of course!! ROFLMHO

 

7 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

JOUSTING

Answer: Maryland became the first state to adopt an official sport, naming jousting as its official sport in 1962. Jousting competitions are non-contact “ring tournaments” where competitors on horseback with lance in hand try to spear hanging rings of various sizes while quickly riding by three arches. According to the Maryland State Archives website, “jousting tournaments have been held in Maryland since early colonial times but became increasingly popular after the Civil War.” To this day, only a handful of U.S. states have chosen to name official state sports, and fewer still have chosen something as esoteric as jousting.

Which company is the official supplier of footballs for the NFL?

Wilson I believe

Answer: The official football of the National Football League, is made by Wilson Sporting Goods. Since 1941 every point scored in the NFL has been with a Wilson football. The official football is called “The Duke”, named after Wellington Mara, the beloved New York Giants owner who started as a ballboy with the team in 1925. Back when Mara was a young boy taking in the game from the sidelines, the Giants players dubbed him "The Duke" and years later, the NFL game ball took on this nickname too. According to a history of “The Duke” by Wilson, the NFL first used the ball in 1941.

What TV show featured a streetwise informant called "Huggy Bear"?

Starsky & Hutch

 

19 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

STARSKY & HUTCH

Answer: The streetwise informant “Huggy Bear” is a character from the 1970s TV series Starsky & Hutch. In a 1998 interview, Antonio Fargas, the actor who portrayed “Huggy Bear” said: "At the time, it was considered hip to have one or two black actors on your series, and I was lucky enough to be one of those." Huggy's notorious "hip" and "urban" way of speaking has made him a symbol of badly-written black characters of the time. At the same time, many people appreciate Huggy for being a sympathetic and fairly major black character at a time when these were few and far between on television.
