AMSTERDAM

Answer: Bicycling is the preferred Dutch way to experience Amsterdam and by far the most popular form of getting around. In fact, Amsterdam has been ranked as the most bicycle-friendly city in the world. There are more than 881,000 bicycles in Amsterdam. That’s four times the number of cars. In addition, approximately 57% of Amsterdammers use their bicycle on a daily basis. Yes, even when it snows! Amsterdam also has the only museum in the world you can actually cycle through which is named the Rijksmuseum.

HORSE

Answer: In 1961, the story of a man and his talking horse captivated television audiences everywhere. The show was Mister Ed, and it followed the hijinks of a talking horse named Mr. Ed and his keeper Wilbur Post. The show became an instant classic, and the character of Ed became an American icon. Mister Ed is one of the few series to debut in syndication and be picked up by a major network for prime time. All 143 episodes were filmed in black-and-white. Comedian George Burns financed the original pilot for Mister Ed which was shot at his studio in Hollywood.

GRANNY

Answer: "Yanny or Laurel" is an auditory illusion of a re-recording of a vocabulary word plus added background sounds, also mixed into the recording, which became popular in May 2018. In the brief audio recording, 53% of over 500,000 people answered on a Twitter poll that they heard a man saying the original word "Laurel", while 47% reported hearing a voice saying the name "Yanny". Analysis of the sound frequencies has confirmed that both sets of sounds are present in the mixed recording, but some users focus on the higher frequency sounds in "Yanny" and cannot seem to hear the lower sounds of the word "Laurel".

WALTER CRONKITE

Answer: Walter Cronkite was a broadcast journalist who served as anchorman for the CBS Evening News for 19 years (1962–1981). He was often cited as "the most trusted man in America" after being so named in an opinion poll. Cronkite provided a voice of reason during the Vietnam and Watergate eras, and reported on events including the Iran Hostage Crisis and the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and John Lennon. Cronkite was well known for his departing catchphrase, "And that's the way it is," followed by the date of the broadcast.

ARIZONA

Answer: Although Arizona is not one of the most populous states in the U.S., it has by far the highest state capital population in the country with close to 1.7 million people living in Phoenix. Austin, Texas is a distant second with around 900,000 residents, and Columbus, Ohio comes in third with approximately 860,000 residents. The vast majority of state capitals have fewer than 200,000 residents. For example, Florida is one of the most highly populated states, but its capital, Tallahassee, has a population of just 191,000. New York City is the largest city in the US, but New York state capital Albany has fewer than 100,000 residents.

ELVIS PRESLY

Answer: Elvis Presley postage stamps are the most widely publicized stamp issued in the history of the United States Postal Service and it is the top selling commemorative postage stamp of all time. The Elvis postage stamps were released by the U.S. Postal Service on January 8, 1993. The USPS printed 500 million of them, three times the usual print run for a commemorative stamp. About 124.1 million of the 1993 Elvis Presley stamps were saved by Americans, according to the post office, which does an annual survey of 10,000 households to determine which stamps are most popular.

SUSSEX

Answer: After marrying Prince Harry at St. George’s Chapel in 2018, Meghan Markle became an official member of the royal family. Meghan Markle is now the Duchess of Sussex. She is the first woman to be known as the Duchess of Sussex. Prince Harry is the second Duke of Sussex. Prince Augustus was the only other person to hold the title. After marrying Prince Harry, Markle can now use Mountbatten-Windsor as her surname. However, considering royals tend to be known only by their first names, it’s not likely you’ll see her addressed by that name very often.

Who was America's only Catholic president?

JFK

 

17 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

JOHN F. KENNEDY

Answer: The U.S. Constitution famously prohibits any religious test or requirement for public office. Still, almost all of the nation’s presidents have been Christians and many have been Episcopalians or Presbyterians, with most of the rest belonging to other prominent Protestant denominations. Although Roman Catholicism has long been the nation’s largest religious denomination, John F. Kennedy remains the only Catholic president. And since Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, only one other Catholic, John Kerry, has been a presidential nominee on a major party ticket.

I  will  agree  PET  ROCK

Answer: In 1975, Gary Dahl launched the sale of the pet rock which quickly turned him into a multi-millionaire. My Pet Rock sold for $3.95, and creator Gary Dahl unloaded more than five million of the igneous invertebrates in six months. He walked away with a cool $15 million. Dahl imported the rocks from Mexico, packaged them in a cardboard box that mimicked a pet carrier – complete with air holes, and a bed of straw. The fad only lasted about six months, and ended after a short increase in sales during the Christmas season of December 1975.
