trivia question answer Which two cities are mentioned in the Italian national anthem?
    Rome and Legnano [quote]English translation 1. Brothers of Italy, Italy has awakened; Scipio's helmet she has put on her head. Where is the Victory? Offer her the hair; because slave of Rome God created her. Chorus: Let us unite! We are ready to die; Italy called. 2. We have been for centuries stamped on, and laughed at, because we are not one people, because we are divided. Let's unite under one flag, one dream; To melt together Already the time has come. 3. Let's unite, let's love; The union and the love Reveal to the people God's ways. We swear to liberate the native soil: United, for God, Who can beat us? 4. From the Alps to Sicily, Everywhere is Legnano; Every man of Ferruccio has the heart and the hand; the children of Italy are called Balilla; The sound of every church bell calling for evening prayers. 5. They are branches that bend the sold swords; Already the eagle of Austria has lost its feathers. the blood of Italy and the Polish blood Drank with Cossacks But its heart was burnt.[/quote] https://www.classicfm.com/discover-music/periods-genres/national-anthems/italian-national-anthem-lyrics/ (elburcher)

    I haven't been able to nail down the "Huntsville to Chattanooga" line, I did find a map showing the Tennessee railways. It appears that the Southern (Now the Norfolk Southern) ran from Chattanooga and passed through Kingsport on its way to Bristol. It's an older map dated 1976. https://www.american-rails.com/tn.html#gallery[pageGallery]/1/ (elburcher)

trivia question answer Is the railroad line from Memphis, Tennessee, to Huntsville, Alabama, still open to freight trains?
    Yes, according to this Wiki article. [quote]The route is still in use today as part of the Norfolk Southern Railway line running between Memphis and Chattanooga, Tennessee. US 72 roughly follows the original route of the Memphis and Charleston between Memphis, Tennessee and Muscle Shoals, Alabama. From Muscle Shoals to Huntsville, Alabama Alt. US 72 follows the original Memphis and Charleston. US 72 follows the route again from Huntsville to Stevenson, Alabama. A branch line from Tullahoma, Tennessee to Sparta, Tennessee was accessed by the Nashville & Chattanooga RR at Tullahoma. The N&C became the Nashville, Chattanooga & St Louis Railway, then in 1957 merged into the Louisville & Nashville RR, now part of the CSX. The Sparta branch is operated by the Caney Fork & Western RR.[/quote] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memphis_and_Charleston_Railroad (hypatia415)

trivia question answer Does "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" appear in the Bible?
    To put it into context, the original quote comes from the Code of Hammurabi, a Babylonian law code from about 1800 BCE (so it was definitely old news by the time the Gospels were being written in the first century CE). It established the principle that punishment should be commensurate with the crime. https://exclusivepapers.com/essays/ethics/an-eye-for-an-eye-a-tooth-for-a-tooth.php#:~:text=%E2%80%98An%20eye%20for%20an%20eye%2C%20a%20tooth%20for,punishment%20methods%20depending%20on%20the%20type%20of%20crime. The sentiment is also clear in the Old Testament. Exodus 21, 23-25 (KJV) reads: [quote]23 And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life, 24 Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.[/quote] https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=exodus%2021&version=KJV The message in Matthew is that one should be more forgiving and generous than that.

trivia question answer What is the highest elevation gas station in the United States?
    I agree with elburcher on the fact that it would have to be one of the gas stations up there. And, having lived there, myself, for almost two years, I can say that Leadville, Colorado also boasts the highest hospital sitting in the United States. St. Vincent General Hospital is a level 4 critical access hospital. It sits in the highest spot of Leadville on a hill and I believe it actually sits at 10,200 ft. (I couldn't get the elevation finder URL to work). It looks out over several 14,000 foot mountains with hiking trails, including Colorado's two highest: Mount Elbert at 14,433 ft. and Mount Massive at 14,428 ft.

trivia question answer What is the highest elevation gas station in the United States?
    I don't have a reference that specifies this but there are 6 gas stations in the Town of Leadville, Colorado. Leadville is the highest statutory city in the United States at an elevation of 10,152 ft. I'm not sure which particular one it is, but it's a good bet that one of the six qualifies. "The City of Leadville is a statutory city that is the county seat, the most populous community, and the only incorporated municipality in Lake County, Colorado, United States. The city population was 2,602 at the 2010 census and an estimated 2,762 in 2018. It is situated at an elevation of 10,152 feet (3,094 m).

trivia question answer What Dodge car, made for two years in the 1950s, was designed for women?
    The Dodge La Femme [quote]In the mid-1950s, Dodge tried something that had never been done before - they made a car specifically designed for women. Called the Dodge La Femme, the full-size car came in various feminine pastels and it had some unique interior features . Unlike other car manufacturers at the time, Dodge saw an opportunity for women in the car buying market. Though men were the major car buyers in the family in the 1950s, women were driving cars while doing chores and errands around the home during the day, so Dodge saw an opportunity in the untouched market. The La Femme was the same car as the 1955 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer, but the La Femme just made some feminine tweaks like a special order trim package with pink and cream paint, pink dashboard and floral upholstery. A special pink purse complete with compact, comb and other accessories was included in a compartment behind the passenger seat. Another small compartment offered a raincoat, umbrella and rain hat that matched the upholstery. The 1956 model went to orchid tones. While Dodge was making an attempt to reach a viable market, women were more interested in a car that would be easier to handle. Features like an automatic transmission and power steering were more important than pink dashboards. The car was dropped by 1957 since sales were not as high as Dodge expected. An estimated 2,500 vehicles with the La Femme trim package were sold. It wasn't until the 1970s with the Dodge Dart Swinger Special, which was a smaller take on the fullsize Dodge Dart, when Dodge's sales took off with women. The Swinger Special was smaller and had a little daisy next to the name, but no purse or raincoat.[/quote] https://www.universitydodge.com/dodge-la-femme-a-car-for-women-of-the-1950s/ Here is a YouTube video on the subject. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iwQXBuGToA (elburcher)
