Which car company was the first to offer air conditioning in its cars?

Packard

PACKARD

Answer: Today, few people would consider buying a car that’s not equipped with air conditioning. It’s seen as a necessity, not a luxury. That wasn’t always the case, though. The 1940 Packard was the first car to offer factory-installed air-conditioning. Cadillac and Chrysler followed suit in 1941 with similar A/C systems. But these setups were primitive and expensive, and they didn’t really catch on. Luxury car buyers quickly came to see A/C as a highly desirable feature, and by 1969, more than half of all new cars sold were equipped with A/C.

What U.S. state has only 2 escalators in the entire state?

Wyoming

WYOMING

Answer: According to reports from NPR, the state of Wyoming is home to only two sets of escalators, both of them located in banks in the city of Casper. With a statewide population estimated at 572,381, that equates to about 0.0000035 escalators per capita. Needless to say, that is a national low. There is no single explanation behind the anti-escalation anomaly, but one might have to do with the shape of the state itself. For many buildings in Wyoming, it’s easier to build outward than upward. “I think land is probably cheaper,” says Sue Goodman in the Sheridan, Wyoming City Planning Office. Instead of building up, “we spread out.”

Which sport uses the largest ball in professional play?

My guess is the Basketball

I  will  go  alone  with    BASKETBALL

Answer: The basketball used in the National Basketball Association (NBA) is 29.5 inches in circumference, which makes it the largest ball used in professional sports. Spalding was the first company to produce a basketball for official use. Company founder A.G. Spalding made the first dedicated basketball in the last years of the 19th century. Spalding has produced basketballs since that time and has produced the NBA’s official game ball since 1983. Curious about the smallest ball? That would be a squash ball which is just a little smaller than a golf ball.

THE LION KING

Answer: Mufasa is a major character in Disney's 1994 animated feature film, The Lion King. He was the king of the Pride Lands and the father of Simba. In the midst of his reign, Mufasa was killed by his envious younger brother, Scar, in an effort to steal the throne. Despite his death, Mufasa endures in the memories of his loved ones. His spirit manifested in clouds and sunlight, which has occasionally appeared to guide his descendants. Fans of The Lion King will recall that James Earl Jones was the powerful voice Mufasa.
