Answer: Steve Irwin, nicknamed "The Crocodile Hunter", was an Australian wildlife expert, television personality, and conservationist. Irwin achieved worldwide fame from the television series The Crocodile Hunter, an internationally broadcast wildlife documentary series which he co-hosted with his wife Terri. Irwin died on September 24, 2006 after being pierced in the chest by a stingray barb while filming an underwater documentary film titled Ocean's Deadliest. Irwin's death is believed to be the only fatality from a stingray captured on video. All copies of the footage were destroyed at the behest of Irwin's family.

Who provided the voice of the genie in Disney's "Aladdin?"

Robin Williams

ROBIN WILLIAMS

Answer: Robin Williams voiced the Genie for SAG scale pay—$75,000—instead of his asking fee of $8 million, on condition that his name or image not be used for marketing. Disney, while not using Williams's name in commercials as per the contract, used his voice for the Genie in the commercials and used the Genie character to sell merchandise without having to pay Williams additional money. Disney attempted to assuage Williams by sending him a Pablo Picasso painting worth more than $1 million at the time, but this move failed to repair the damaged relationship, as the painting apparently really "clashed" with the Williams' home decor.

The Constitution

Answer: Andrew Johnson succeeded Abraham Lincoln as president, and was the first president of the United States to be impeached. On this day in 1875, Johnson died of a stroke while visiting his daughter in Tennessee. He was buried with his body wrapped in an American flag and a copy of the U.S. Constitution placed under his head, according to his wishes. The burial ground was dedicated as the Andrew Johnson National Cemetery in 1906, and with his home and tailor's shop, is part of the Andrew Johnson National Historic Site.

D. Mr. Red

If you're seeing red, you're incorrect. Misters Pink, Blonde and Brown were among the colorfully named characters in the Quentin Tarantino flick, but Mr. Red wasn't.

 INDIANA JONES

Answer: In Raiders of the Lost Ark, archaeologist Indiana Jones was named after George Lucas's dog named Indiana. The character was originally named Indiana Smith, after his dog Indiana, an Alaskan Malamute that Lucas owned in the 1970s. Spielberg disliked the name Smith, and Lucas casually suggested Jones as an alternative. In the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr. admits to having taken for himself the name of the family dog, Indiana, of whom he had very fond memories.

EUROPE

Answer: Europium is a chemical element with the symbol Eu. Europium is a ductile metal with a hardness similar to that of lead. Europium was isolated in 1901 and is named after the continent of Europe. Europium has no significant biological role and is relatively non-toxic compared to other heavy metals. Europium is one of the rarest of rare earth elements on Earth. French chemist, Eugene-Anatole Demarcay, is typically credited with the discovery of the element as he ultimately produced a relatively pure form of the rare earth metal in 1901.

LAWRENCE

Answer: Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra was a professional baseball catcher, who later took on the roles of manager and coach. He played 19 seasons in Major League Baseball, all but the last for the New York Yankees. He was an 18-time All-Star and won 10 World Series championships as a player—more than any other player in MLB history. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest catchers in baseball history. He was known for his malapropisms as well as pithy and paradoxical statements, such as "It ain't over 'til it's over". He once simultaneously denied and confirmed his reputation by stating, "I really didn't say everything I said."

Sleeping Beauty

SLEEPING BEAUTY

Answer: Prince Philip reportedly inspired a Disney character many years ago. According to one Disney fandom website, the prince in “Sleeping Beauty” was named after the Duke of Edinburgh. The animated film was created in 1959, and at that time, Prince Philip was the most senior figure in the royal household. “Sleeping Beauty” is also the first Disney movie to have named its prince. Other films like “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and “Cinderella” did not. He is said to have been named after the prince that Americans knew of best at that time, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, husband of Queen Elizabeth II”.

ICOSAHEDRON

Answer: The Magic 8-Ball is a toy used for fortune-telling or seeking advice, developed in the 1950s and manufactured by Mattel. The Magic 8-Ball is a hollow plastic sphere resembling an oversized, black-and-white 8-ball. Inside, a cylindrical reservoir contains a white, plastic icosahedron floating in alcohol dyed dark blue. In geometry, an icosahedron is a polyhedron with 20 faces. Each of the die's 20 faces has an affirmative, negative, or non-committal statement printed in raised letters. These messages are read through a window on the ball's bottom.
