CHEMICAL BANK

Answer: On this day in 1969, America’s first automatic teller machine made its public debut, dispensing cash to customers at Chemical Bank in Rockville Center, New York. A Chemical Bank advertisement boasted "On Sept. 2 our bank will open at 9:00 and never close again." Chemical's ATM, initially known as a Docuteller was designed by Donald Wetzel and his company Docutel. Chemical executives were initially concerned that customers would resist having machines handling their money. ATMs went on to revolutionize the banking industry, eliminating the need to visit a bank to conduct basic financial transactions.

According to an age-old fashion rule, Labor Day is the last day you can wear what?

White I believe??

WHITE

Answer: Wearing white after Labor Day has been a no-no in the fashion world for decades, but if asked why, many people wouldn't know the reason behind the strange end-of-summer rule. There is no single explanation for the rule, but there are several possibilities regarding its origin. One common explanation is practical. For centuries, wearing white in the summer was simply a way to stay cool. Another explanation can be traced back to the latter period of the nineteenth century when the fashion industry adopted Labor Day as the natural endpoint for summer fashion.

Where is the world's largest known stockpile of gold?

I'm going to guess Manhattan

Answer: About 80 feet below Wall Street lies about 6,350 tons of gold, made up of about 508,000 bars, that are collectively worth hundreds of billions of dollars. According to “Key to the Gold Vault", a Federal Reserve Bank of New York publication, the gold vault in the New York Fed’s basement “is the world’s largest accumulation of gold and belongs to 36 foreign governments, central banks, and official international organizations.” When any compartment inside the vault is opened, three people, including one New York Fed auditor, must be present to ensure that the gold is safe.

Superman's Metropolis was inspired by which of these cities?

Chicago? I would've thought NY??

Answer: Metropolis is a fictional city appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, best known as the home of Superman. Metropolis is depicted as a prosperous and massive city in the Northeastern United States, within close proximity to Gotham City. The co-creator and original artist of Superman, Joe Shuster, modeled the Metropolis skyline after Toronto, where he was born and lived until he was ten. Within the DC Universe, Metropolis is depicted as being one of the largest and wealthiest cities in the world, having a population of 11 million citizens.

(Ha, I would never have guessed Toronto in a million years!!!!!)

1.4 BILLION

Answer: China's 2019 population is 1.43 billion, based on United Nations projections. China, officially the People's Republic of China, is the largest country in the world today. China population is equivalent to 18.59% of the total world population. India, the next largest country, has 120 million fewer people, for a population of 1.28 billion. The United States, the third largest country in the world, has a much smaller population of 323 million. Estimates show that India will pass China as the most populous nation in the world in the next couple of decades.
