dgrimm60

Answer: Nerd is a descriptive term, often used to describe a person that is overly intellectual, obsessive, or lacking social skills. The word nerd was first used in the 1950 Dr. Seuss book "If I Ran the Zoo", in which a nerd was one of the many oddly named creatures in the titular zoo. The slang meaning of the term dates to the next year, 1951, when Newsweek magazine reported on its popular use as a synonym for "drip" or "square" in Detroit, Michigan. By the early 1960s, usage of the term had spread throughout the United States, and even as far as Scotland.

What is the common name for the star Sirius?

Dog Star

PHKRAUSE

the answer  is  DOG STAR

dgrimm60

Answer: Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky. Sirius is almost twice as bright as Canopus, the next brightest star. Sirius appears bright because of its intrinsic luminosity and its proximity to the Solar System. Sirius is gradually moving closer to the Solar System, so it will slightly increase in brightness over the next 60,000 years. Sirius is sometimes called the "Dog Star", reflecting its prominence in its constellation, Canis Major (the Greater Dog). Most people in the Northern Hemisphere notice Sirius in the southeast – south – or southwest on evenings from winter to mid-spring.

ABBEY ROAD

Answer: Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by the Beatles, released in 1969. The front cover design was a photograph of the group on a zebra crossing based on ideas that McCartney had sketched and taken on Abbey Road. Photographer Iain Macmillan was given only 10 minutes to take the photo while he stood on a step-ladder and a policeman held up traffic behind the camera. Macmillan took six photographs, which McCartney examined with a magnifying glass before deciding which would be used on the album sleeve. In the image selected by McCartney, the group walk across the street in single file from left to right, with Lennon leading, followed by Starr, McCartney, and Harrison.

HENRY/EDWARD

Answer: Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a gothic novella by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, first published in 1886. It is about a London legal practitioner named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the evil Edward Hyde. The novella's impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the phrase "Jekyll and Hyde" entering the vernacular to refer to people with an unpredictably dual nature: usually very good, but sometimes shockingly evil.

Canadian Marcellus Edson patented which food item in 1884?

Peanut butter

 

4 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

PEANUT BUTTER

Answer: Marcellus Gilmore Edson was a Canadian chemist who filed and was granted the first patent in the United States for what he called “peanut-candy” in 1884. His cooled product had "a consistency like that of butter, lard, or ointment", according to his patent application. Edson developed the idea of peanut paste as a delicious and nutritious foodstuff for people who could hardly chew solid food, a common state in those days. Peanut paste was initially sold for six cents per pound. The patent describes a process of milling roasted peanuts until the peanuts reached "a fluid or semi-fluid state".

MARVIN GARDENS

Answer: The yellow property group is a three-space set located in the third stretch between the red property group and the green property group. There are three yellow properties on a Monopoly board. They are Atlantic Avenue, Ventnor Avenue, and Marvin Gardens. Marvin Gardens, the leading yellow property on the board shown, is a misspelling of the original location name, Marven Gardens. It was not until 1995 that Parker Brothers acknowledged the misspelling of Marvin Gardens, formally apologizing to the residents of Marven Gardens.
