SAMUEL JACKSON

Answer: The “Pulp Fiction” star studied marine biology at Morehouse College, an all-male institution in Atlanta, Georgia. After joining a local acting group, Samuel L. Jackson found an interest in acting and switched his major. As a way to pick up the ladies, he showed off his school spirit and joined the cheerleading squad so he could travel with the basketball and football teams to games at other universities, where females crowded the stands. And Jackson is glad he did – he ended up meeting his wife, actress LaTanya Richardson, at neighboring school Spelman College.

As Elizabeth's oldest child, Charles became the heir apparent to the British throne and received the title of Duke of Cornwall. Charles was also destined to become Great Britain's oldest heir apparent, with his mother remaining queen for more than six and a half decades.

Lima beans are named for a city in which country?

Wouldn't ya think Peru??

Answer: Lima is the capital and the largest city of Peru. Lima beans originated in Peru and have been grown there since 6000 B.C. Despite the lima bean being named after the city of Lima, Peru, the two have distinctly different pronunciations. Packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals, the lima bean is one of the most nutritious foods in the world. A common nickname for the lima bean is butter bean, said to be descriptive of the bean’s rich taste and creamy texture. For unknown reasons, April 20 is National Lima Bean Respect Day.

CARDBOARD  BOX

Answer: For 75 years, Finland's expectant mothers have been given a cardboard box by the state. It's contains a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that is also used as a bed. It's a tradition that dates back to the 1930s, and some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world's lowest infant mortality rates. With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes the baby's first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box's four cardboard walls. Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, but 95% opt for the box.

 BATTLE OF THE SSOMME

Answer: On this day in 1916, a massive joint operation between British and French forces against the Germans occurred in the Somme area in northern France. Dubbed the Battle of the Somme, it was the largest battle of the First World War on the Western Front. More than three million men fought in the battle and one million men were wounded or killed, making it one of the bloodiest battles in human history. The battle also has the distinction of being the first battle fought with tanks. The disastrous Battle of the Somme stretched on for more than four months, with the Allies advancing a total of just five miles.

WARREN  G  HARDING

Answer: Warren G. Harding is widely described as the worst president in American history. He was our 29th chief executive, serving from 1921 to 1923. Harding has been described as “good-looking, charming and out of his depth” and “oddly likeable in his ineptitude.” He evidently agreed with these assessments, saying about himself, “I am a man of limited talents from a small town; I don’t seem to grasp that I am president.” Harding then told historian Nicholas Murray Butler after assuming the seat, "I am not fit for this office and should never have been here."

CHARLES J  GUITEAU

Answer: On this day in 1881, President James A. Garfield was shot by Charles J. Guiteau, a disgruntled office seeker in Washington, D.C. As Garfield fell to the ground, Guiteau exclaimed, "I did it. I will go to jail for it. I am a Stalwart and Arthur will be President." After 11 weeks of intensive care, Garfield died from an infection and internal hemorrhage. The following day, Chester A. Arthur was inaugurated as the 21st president of the United States. Guiteau was convicted of Garfield’s murder and executed by hanging in 1882.

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN

Answer: 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence, however George Washington was not one of them. George Washington did not sign the Declaration of Independence because in July 1776 he was in New York preparing to defend Manhattan against the British. Washington took command of the Revolutionary forces in Massachusetts on July 3, 1775. He was with his troops a year later when on July 4, 1776 —the Declaration of Independence was adopted. He, therefore, did not vote for or sign the Declaration of Independence.

1.21 GIGAWTTS

Answer: The DeLorean time machine is a fictional automobile-based time travel vehicle featured in the Back to the Future franchise. After entering a target date, the operator accelerates the car to 88 miles per hour, which activates the flux capacitor. The time machine is electric and requires a power input of 1.21 gigawatts to operate. The power required is pronounced in the film as one point twenty-one "jigowatts". While the closed-captioning spells the word as it appears in the script, jigowatt, the actual spelling matches the standard prefix and the term for power of "one billion watts": gigawatt. The director thought it was pronounced this way because that was how a scientific adviser for the film pronounced it.
