Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The creator of "The Simpsons" and the actor who played Jason Bourne both share what first name?

Answer: Matt

Cartoonist and animator Matt Groening created "The Simpsons," which first appeared as a series of shorts on "The Tracey Ullman Show" in 1987 before becoming its own series in 1989.

Matt Damon began his acting career with 1988's "Mystic Pizza" and won his first Oscar (for screenwriting) with 1997's "Good Will Hunting," which also saw him nominated for Best Actor. Damon rose to superstardom over the next few years, largely due to his role as superspy Jason Bourne in "The Bourne Identity" (2002) and its sequels.
2. What is the most popular colour that appears on national flags?

Answer: Red

A whopping 77% of national flags incorporate the colour red, although white comes in a close second at 73%. Blue claims third spot on the list with 53% of national flags sporting the colour, while yellow/gold appear on 46% of flags, just a smidgen ahead of green, which can be found on 45% of national flags.
3. Which Greek tragic figure, fixed on revenge, plotted with her brother to kill their mother Clytemnestra?

Answer: Electra

Electra was the daughter of King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra of Mycenae.

When Agamemnon departed to command the Greek army against Troy, he chose to sacrifice his eldest daughter Iphigenia as a human sacrifice to Artemis, to ensure favourable winds for the fleet. Upon his return (with the Trojan priestess Cassandra), Queen Clytemnestra (and her lover Aegisthus) murdered Agamemnon (and Cassandra) for what he did.

Electra and her brother Orestes, both away from home when this all happened, returned to Mycenae and discovered what happened. Together, they plot to seek their revenge on their mother for the murder of their father.
4. Woody Harrelson appears as a former professional bowler with a prosthetic hand in what 1996 sports comedy?

Answer: Kingpin

Along with Woody Harrelson as the down on his luck, alcoholic ex-pro bowler, Randy Quaid plays the talented (but naive) Amish bowler that Woody tries to convince to try for a million dollar bowling tournament in Reno. Of course, Woody's character has ulterior motives. Along the way, hilarity ensues as they try to earn money hustling other bowlers.

Rounding out the "Kingpin" cast was the always funny Bill Murray, and English actress Vanessa Angel.
5. Which child actor's first starring movie role (as an adult) was 1995's "Glory Daze"?

Answer: Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck was born in 1972. He was just seven years old when he acted in his first movie role - an independent film called "The Dark End of the Street" (1981). In adulthood, after his first leading role in "Glory Daze," Affleck's breakthrough role came with "Chasing Amy" (1997) and was quickly followed up with his successful co-writing (and co-acting) effort in "Good Will Hunting" with friend Matt Damon.
6. Known for his many cameo appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, who made his first such appearance in the made-for-TV movie "The Trial of the Incredible Hulk" in 1989?

Answer: Stan Lee

Stan Lee (Stanley Martin Lieber) began his career when he joined the "Timely Comics" division of a book publisher as an assistant in 1939. He stayed with the company when it became "Marvel Comics" in the 1960s, and became instrumental in the creation of many of the greatest comic superheroes we know and love today.

In 1972 he stopped writing for the comics and became a publisher. In the 1980s, he began working to develop Marvel's television and movie properties. Eventually, he 'quit' working for Marvel in 1990s and began his own media company, "Stan Lee Media."
7. What profession requires the successful passing of the Uniform Bar Examination in the United States?

Answer: Lawyer

The Uniform Bar Examination (UBE), or the 'Bar Exam' is the standardized test that every prospective lawyer in the United States must pass before being allowed to practice law. It consists of three parts:

(50%) the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) - 200 multiple choice questions;
(30%) the Multistate Essay Examination (MEE) - six 30-minute questions; and
(20%) the Multistate Performance Test (MPT) - two 90-minute scenario-based exams.
8. In "Toy Story 2", Woody finds out that he was a toy based on an old television show called "Woody's Roundup." What was the name of his horse?

Answer: Bullseye

In the second installment of the "Toy Story" franchise, Woody not only learns of the television series, but also that he is, himself, a valuable collectible toy. He meets the other toys that would make a 'complete set,' including a cowgirl named Jessie, the villain Stinky Pete the Prospector, and, of course, his loyal steed, Bullseye!
9. Braille is a form of reading and writing usually used by people who have what sensory disability?

Answer: blindness

Braille can be read by feeling dots on a piece of paper. Louis Braille (1809-1852) was the creator of this form of reading. At the age of three, Louis went blind and feared he wouldn't be able to receive a good education. He was frustrated that books for blind people had raised letters and took a long time to read. So, inspired by a code designed by Charles Barbier for the army that allowed soldiers to read in the dark, Braille developed the reading and writing system that today bears his name.
10. And finally, what is the common bond, in the field of entertainment, that ties together the answers to the first nine questions?

Answer: Daredevil

Qn 1 - The alter ego of Daredevil is Matt Murdock.
Qn 2 - While Daredevil has worn other colours over the years, his most famous is his original red costume... and the colour of his costume in the "Daredevil" (2003) movie.
Qn 3 - Elektra was Daredevil's love interest in the 2003 movie, and she starred in her own 2005, self-titled spinoff. The original character from the comics was named Elektra as a direct reference to the Electra of Greek mythology.
Qn 4 - The crime lord Kingpin, a.k.a. Wilson Fisk, was portrayed by the late Michael Clarke Duncan in the film - Daredevil's prime nemesis.
Qn 5 - Ben Affleck, of course, acted the part of Daredevil (and Matt Murdock).
Qn 6 - Stan Lee (and artist Bill Everett) created the character of Daredevil in 1964, and Lee also made a cameo appearance in the 2003 film.
Qn 7 - Daredevil's alter ego Matt Murdock is a lawyer by profession, working in New York's Hell's Kitchen.
Qn 8 - Bullseye, portrayed by Colin Farrell, was the supervillain assassin who killed Electra's father in the film.
Qn 9 - Young Matt Murdock was blinded by an accident involving a chemical spill - which gave him his extrasensory powers.
