SPRINGFIELD , IL

Answer: What is the capital of Illinois? Most would probably guess Chicago. For starters, Chicago is by far the biggest city in Illinois, with over 2.7 million residents. But Chicago is not the capital of Illinois. That distinction goes to Springfield. Like many states, the capital of Illinois has changed a few times over the years. Starting in 1809, when Illinois was still just a territory, the capital was Kaskaskia. In 1818, Illinois was granted full statehood, and by 1819, the state capital had moved to Vandalia. In 1839, the capital eventually moved north to Springfield.

BOBBIES

Answer: The concept of modern policing has its roots in pre-Victorian England, when the British home minister, Sir Robert Peel, oversaw the creation of London’s first organized police force. Peel’s patrolmen wore black jackets and tall wool hats with badges. They went out armed only with a short club and a whistle for summoning backup. Robert Peel’s system was a success, and by the mid-19th century large American cities had created similar police forces. In London, the policemen were so identified with the politician who created them that they were referred to as “Bobbies,” after the popular nickname for Robert.

I  will  go  along  with  PAMPLONA

Answer: The Running of the Bulls occurs every July 7th-14th in Pamplona, Spain. Every year, thousands of people choose to run from over a dozen bulls and steers through the streets of Pamplona as part of the city's San Fermín Festival. The length of the run is 825 meters (a little over 900 yards) long and the average time of the run from start to finish is about three minutes. Among the rules to take part in the event are that participants must be at least 18 years old, run in the same direction as the bulls, not incite the bulls, and not be under the influence of alcohol.

PRINGLES

Answer: The container tubes for Pringles currently label the product as “potato crisps”. While Pringles are often thought of like a potato chip, technically it may just be referred to by its parent company as “crisps”. Pringles were originally known as "Pringles Newfangled Potato Chips", however, there were objections from other snack producers to the brand using the term potato chip to describe Pringles. The US Food and Drug Administration ruled in 1975 that Pringles could only use the word "chip" in their product name within the following phrase: "potato chips made from dried potatoes". Rather than do this, the company began referring to Pringles as potato "crisps" rather than potato chips.

Which automaker introduced the 3 point seatbelt?

Volvo

 

21 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

VOLVO

Answer: The United States Patent Office issued the Swedish engineer Nils Bohlin a patent for his three-point automobile safety belt “for use in vehicles” on this day in 1962. Four years earlier, Sweden’s Volvo Car Corporation had hired Bohlin, as the company’s first chief safety engineer. Bohlin designed his three-point system in less than a year, and Volvo introduced it on its cars in 1959. Volvo then made the new seat belt design patent open in the interest of safety and made it available to other car manufacturers for free.

AARON BURR

Answer: Aaron Burr was the third Vice President of the United States under President Thomas Jefferson. On this day in 1804, Alexander Hamilton was shot and mortally wounded by Vice President Aaron Burr in one of the most famous duels in American history. Burr was never tried for the illegal duel and all charges against him were eventually dropped. The death of Hamilton, however, ended Burr's political career. President Jefferson dropped him from the ticket for the 1804 presidential election, and he never held office again.

Which creature has 3 hearts?

 

14 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

OCTOPUS

Answer: The octopus has three hearts in total with one of the hearts functioning as the systematic heart that pumps oxygenated blood to the other body parts. Two of the three hearts are referred to as brachial hearts and pump blood to the gills. Unlike most vertebrates with iron-rich hemoglobin packed in their blood, octopuses have copper-rich hemocyanin that dissolves directly into their blood making their blood to appear blue. Hemoglobin is more efficient than hemocyanin as an oxygen transporter. Thus, the three hearts compensate by pumping blood around the body at a faster rate to supply the needed oxygen for the octopus’ active lifestyle.
