Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "Recession-Proof" was about jobs that resist economic recessions better than others. Which of the following is one such occupation?

Answer: Doctor

It is an unfortunate fact of the economic cycle that many people will lose their jobs when the economy worsens. Companies are likely to lay off workers in industries like construction, hospitality and tourism, technology, and entertainment. For example, the COVID-19 pandemic caused a massive wave of layoffs in the hotel industry and in tech companies due to the resulting economic downturn.

There are certain people, such as doctors, police officers, plumbers, and electricians, who typically do a little better during recessions compared to other jobs because they perform essential functions and tasks that society still needs regardless of the economy.
2. "How to be a Hipster" was about TV shows that featured or mocked "hipsters". Which of these programs, set in Oregon, has Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein playing "hipster" characters?

Answer: Portlandia

"Hipsters" are generally viewed as a subculture of bohemian and trendy millennials that older generations sometimes dislike. Hipsters may see themselves as non-conformists and fashionable. Several TV shows, such as "Family Guy", "South Park", and "The Simpsons" have parodied hipsters in one or more of their episodes.

The show "Portlandia" first released in 2011, took that to another level by making an entire show based on their lifestyle. The program stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein as two hipsters living in the city of Portland, Oregon, which is known for having a larger population of hipsters than other cities.
3. "Operation Motive" was about U.S. criminal cases where the concept of motive was examined. In U.S. criminal law, do the words "purpose" and "motive" mean the exact same thing?

Answer: No

This quiz was a fun one to write because I got to read several interesting cases and look at how courts interpret motive when convicting and sentencing defendants. The concept of motive is a psychological inquiry into the reason why a person engaged in a certain behavior (in this context, in a criminal act).

The distinction between purpose and motive is that, whereas motive refers to *why* someone would want to do something, purpose is about *whether* someone wants to do a certain action. Though the difference sounds subtle, it can make a big difference: motive is not a formal element of most crimes but is typically an element for crimes of specific intent. Purpose, on the other hand, can be critical to prove that the defendant acted intentionally.
4. "Trick a Taco" was a fun quiz about several variations of this delicious Mexican food. Which of the following items, which translates to "pork rinds", is a common ingredient of "tacos campechanos"?

Answer: Chicharron

Tacos are an incredibly versatile, humble, and absolutely delicious type of food. In its very basic form, this Mexican food is created by adding a meat filling to a soft tortilla. However, as my quiz explored, the possibilities to construct your own version of a taco are virtually endless. One such possibility, very popular in Mexican taquerias, is the taco campechano.

This dish is made of a tortilla loaded with a mixture of chicharron/pork rinds, carnitas, and spicy sauce. Campechanos often also contain chorizo and beef, and are served with lime juice, cilantro, and onion.

The crunchy texture of the chicharrones elevates this taco style to a different level!
5. "Her and I" was about Disney Channel couples over the years. Which of the following pairs of characters was NEVER a couple while their show was on the air?

Answer: Cooper Montgomery and Miley Stewart

Romantic relationships are often important in the development of TV show characters, and Disney Channel programs are no exception. Devon Carter and Raven Baxter are the long-time couple in "That's So Raven"; Cody Martin and Bailey Pickett dated in "The Suite Life on Deck", a show set on a cruise ship which was a sequel to "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody". After obsessing over Jeremy Johnson for a while, Candace Flynn finally achieves her dream of dating him in the animated show "Phineas and Ferb".

Cooper Montgomery and Miley Stewart are characters from "Hannah Montana". Stewart, played by Miley Cyrus, was the main character of the show that was about a teenager who secretly is also a pop star. Throughout the show, which originally aired between 2006 and 2011, Miley dates Oliver, Travis, and Jesse. However, she is never romantically involved with Cooper Montgomery (portrayed by André Jamal Kinney), who only appeared in a few episodes of the first seasons.
6. "The Wild World of Wiring" was a quiz about safety as it relates to electrical wiring. Which of the following options is most closely related to electrical safety?

Answer: Ground fault circuit interrupter

Though the quiz was placed online in the For Children category, the information contained therein may be useful to anyone! Electrical injuries cause hundreds of deaths per year and, therefore, safety when handling electricity is to be taken seriously. One safety feature that is now commonly found in electrical outlets, especially those in kitchens or bathrooms, is the ground fault circuit interrupter or GFCI.

This system is designed to turn off power when it perceives a change in electrical current.

A common example of this happening is when water makes contact with the outlet, creating a potentially dangerous situation. GFCI outlets reduce the risk of such an incident.
7. "Two Little Boys" was about celebrity twins. Which of these celebrity siblings are NOT twins?

Answer: Joe and Nick Jonas

The show business and entertainment industries have plenty of famous siblings, many of whom happen to be twins. James and Oliver Phelps are famous for their appearances in the "Harry Potter" films; Dylan and Cole Sprouse acted together in several movies and shows and starred in Disney's "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody"; Brent and Shane Kinsman appeared in the "Cheaper by the Dozen" films with Steve Martin.

The Jonas Brothers, a three-member band that captured teenage audiences in the late-2000s, is a group formed by brothers Joe, Nick, and Kevin Jonas. Though they are all brothers, they are not twins as they were all born in different years: Kevin was born in 1987, Joe was born in 1989, and Nick was born in 1992.
8. "Jack O'Llama" quizzed players about people whose names are also types of animals. Which bird completes the names _________ Williams, _________ van Persie, and _________ Gibb?

Answer: Robin

This was a fun quiz to write because it ended up being a photo quiz that combined pretty pictures of animals with fun animal-related names. Some people featured in the quiz were Tony Hawk, Tiger Woods, and Wolf Blitzer. One question was also about Robin Williams (1951-2014), an iconic American comedian whose notable works included "Mork & Mindy", "Good Morning, Vietnam", and "Dead Poets Society".

Other famous Robins are Robin van Persie (a football player from the Netherlands) and musician Robin Gibb (one of the Bee Gees).

The robin, of course, is also a type of bird, normally identifiable by its distinctive black and orange colors.
9. "Nefesh Yehudi Homiyah" was a quiz about the lyrics of "Hatikvah", which is the national anthem of which country?

Answer: Israel

"Hatikvah", which means "the Hope", was adopted as the national anthem for Zionism in 1933, though it was not formally recognized as Israel's anthem until 2004. A substantial portion of its lyrics come from a poem by Naftali Herz Imber. A moving version of this song was recorded during the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at the end of World War II and the Holocaust.

The State of Israel officially declared its independence in 1948 and is home to historical landmarks like the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and the White Mosque.
10. "Franny and Zooey" was about an eponymous entertaining book written by which reclusive American author, also known for "The Catcher in the Rye"?

Answer: J.D. Salinger

J.D. Salinger (1919-2010) was a Manhattan-born author who is mainly known for "The Catcher in the Rye", a story narrated by the iconic Holden Caulfield. The book was rather controversial and partly led to Salinger living a reclusive lifestyle for most of his adult life.

Many of his other works told stories about the Glass family, one of these being "Franny and Zooey". That book is made of two separate works: a short story called "Franny" which focuses on a disastrous lunch date between college students Franny and Lane, and a novella called "Zooey" which primarily takes place as a conversation between Zooey and his mother.
