The Guinness Book of Records was created after an argument about what?

The fastest game bird in Europe

THE FASTEST GAME BIRD IN EUROPE

Answer: On this day in 1955, the first edition of “The Guinness Book of Records” was published in Great Britain. The inspiration for the record book can be traced to November 1951, when Sir Hugh Beaver, managing director of the Guinness Brewery was on a hunting trip in Ireland. After failing to shoot a golden plover, Beaver and the members of his hunting party debated whether the creature was Europe’s fastest game bird but were unable to locate a book with the answer. Thinking that patrons of Britain’s pubs would enjoy a record book which could be used to settle friendly disagreements, Beaver decided to have one produced.

The sports teams of Florida State take their name from which Native American people?

Has to be Seminoles

 

8 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

SEMINOLES

Answer: The Florida State Seminoles are the athletic teams representing Florida State University located in Tallahassee, Florida. The "Seminoles" name, chosen by students in a 1947 vote, alludes to Florida's Seminole people who in the early 19th century resisted efforts of the United States government to remove them from Florida. The use of names and images associated with Seminole history is officially sanctioned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida. The athletic logo, in use since the early 1970s, shows a profile of a shouting Seminole warrior in circle.

Indonesia??

 

8 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

INDONESIA

Answer: According to the United States Geological Survey, approximately 1,500 potentially active volcanoes exist on land around the globe. Indonesia remains the country most at risk of another deadly volcanic eruption. The most famous is Krakatoa, now called Anak Krakatau (“Child of Krakatoa”), where on August 26, 1883, what was likely the greatest eruption in recorded history took place. Indonesia has 173 active volcanoes, most on the suture line where Eurasian and Australian plates collide along Java, Sumatra, and Bali. Because of this, Indonesia is the single densest and most active volcanic region in the world.

Dallas Cowboys?? I don't know why!!

Answer: Each year, Forbes publishes a list of the most valuable 50 sports franchises across the world. All of the teams on the list this year were American, except the soccer teams which were all from Europe. The Dallas Cowboys are the world’s most valuable sports franchise for the fourth-straight year, and the only one worth $5 billion - despite not having won a Super Bowl since 1996. The New York Yankees are just behind the Cowboys with a value of $4.6 billion. Joining the Cowboys and Yankees in the top five are soccer teams Real Madrid ($4.24 billion) and Barcelona ($4.02 billion), and the New York Knicks ($4 billion) of the NBA.
