Monopoly

MONOPLY

Answer: Lovers of Monopoly in Cuba… Do not pass “GO.” Do not collect $200. Upon taking power in 1959, Fidel Castro banned the board game “Monopoly” and decreed that every set be destroyed. Apparently, the game had a strong following in Cuba but he perceived it as the pure embodiment of capitalism. Parker Brothers was unable to estimate how many games were sold to Cuba at the time of the incident. The fact that the Cuban government heavily sanctions its citizens unfortunately isn’t news. Until 2008, Cubans weren’t even allowed to own a computer.

What candy bar is considered good luck in Japan?

Kit Kat

Answer: Kit Kats are huge in Japan because they symbolize good luck. They also a must-have good luck charm for students taking entrance exams. One in three students gets a Kit Kat before taking an exam. The Japanese pronunciation, Kitto Katto sounds a lot like the Japanese phrase Kitto Katsu, which means “you will surely win” — that’s how people started gifting them as good luck charms. Kit Kat even partnered with the postal service and created “Kit Kat Mail” so you can mail some good luck to students. There have been over 300 unique Kit Kat flavors sold in Japan, including wasabi, sweet potato, and even sake.

NATHAN  HALE

Answer: On this day in 1776, Nathan Hale, a Connecticut schoolteacher and captain in the Continental Army, was executed by the British for spying. Disguised as a Dutch schoolmaster, Hale slipped behind British lines and successfully gathered information. Hale was captured while sailing Long Island Sound, trying to cross back into American-controlled territory. When it was discovered that he was carrying incriminating documents, British General William Howe ordered his execution for spying. After being led to the gallows, legend holds that the 21-year-old Hale said, “I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.”

ps:I answered that a little to quick for sure!!😀

NACL

Answer: Sodium chloride also known as table salt, is an ionic compound with the chemical formula NaCl, representing a 1:1 ratio of sodium and chloride ions. Salt is necessary for life. Na+ ions are one of the main ions in the human body and are necessary to regulate the fluid balance in the body. Cl- ions are necessary for proper nerve function and respiration. Both of these ions are supplied by salt. The taste of salt is one of the fundamental tastes; salt is probably the most ancient flavoring known, and one of the few rocks we eat.

Misophonia literally means "hatred of sound" but more specifically refers to human sounds, especially repetitive ones like chewing or breathing.

What animal produces the loudest sound?

Sperm whale

Answer: Whales, the largest species also have the loudest calls than any other animal on Earth. To be precise, the sperm whale is the animal with the loudest call in the world. It makes a series of clicking noises that can reach as high as 230 decibels, making it the loudest animal in the world. The click lasts for only 15 to 30 milliseconds and can stay audible to a sperm whale as much as 10 miles away. Sperm whales are so loud that their clicks are capable of killing a human within their vicinity. At around 150 decibels your eardrums will burst, and the threshold for death is estimated to be in the range of 180 to 200.
