Alphabetics Trivia Questions

1. (K) "I Got a Gal in Kalamazoo" was recorded by the Glenn Miller Band in 1942. Who was the singer on that recording?

From Quiz
USA by the Letters 2

Answer: Tex Beneke

When Gene Krupa was forming this band, his brass section was filled so he recommended Tex Beneke to Glenn Miller who was also organizing a group. It was a great fit as Beneke is heard as lead tenor sax on such classic jazz recordings as "String of Pearls" and "In The Mood". Another plus was that he could sing, such as the catchy "Chattanooga Choo Choo" and "I Got a Gal in Kalamazoo". After Miller was lost during World War Two, Beneke was responsible for reuniting the band using many of the same musicians and arrangements. In 1949 the Miller band broke up but Beneke had later success with bands under his own name.

2. (A) What is the only state purchased from the Russians?

From Quiz USA By The Letters 1

Answer: Alaska

"Seward's Folly" it was called, the purchase having been negotiated by Secretary of State William H. Seward for 7.2 million dollars from Russia. Neither Russia nor Spain had much to show for their efforts of development of this vast inhospitable expanse. Russia particularly wanted to divest itself of Alaska as it could not defend it with Canada, under English control, sharing its only land border.

3. What bird, said to be sitting in the old gum tree, is indigenous to Australia and New Guinea?

From Quiz Alphabetical Answers 2!

She has received over thirty honorary university degrees, and in her later years, she had worked as a Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University.

6. A is the able Alpha male, of course. He's the first one up in the A.M., and last one abed. Which word describes him best?

From Quiz Where Is U?

Answer: Accomplished

A is a born leader. In a recent interview, he admitted, "I don't know when I was born, but I vaguely remember being on the wall of a cave, and later lending myself to history with such greats as Adam, Alexander, Archimedes, Attila, and Arthur. I abound in geographical and astronomical names, beginning and end. E is forever extolling the essence of Europe, but he has amnesia when it comes to the other continents!" A is not adipose (fat), as he prides himself on his amazing athletic attributes. A is not arbitrary as he is always aware of the appropriate attitude and answer. A is sometimes alliterative, but not always.

7. What are you when you walk about at night?

From Quiz N 2 Z

Answer: Noctambulous

Noctambulous means literally walking at night, whether asleep or awake. Somnambulous means walking while asleep. Nidiculous refers to being reared in a nest, usually of birds. Nictitating means winking. Nightjar is a bird, such as a whipporwill or nighthawk.

8. What is a term for one original or certified copy that is used in identity theft to compile other means of identification?

From Quiz B 2 M

Answer: Breeder document

With just the first document, such as a birth certificate, requested from a town or city hall, the identity thief can create more 'identity' items like a driver's license, credit card and more. Never ever give out your social security number except when you know and trust the recipient. If a 'byblow certificate' were real it would only prove that you were illegitimate. Bioethics covers a wide range of controversial subjects, among which are abortion, euthanasia, animal research, and organ transplants. By the way, "B" is just beaming with pride, as he seldom gets to lead the parade.

9. What does the abbreviation "MASH" (similar to the TV show) stand for?

From Quiz Abbreviations of the World

A couple of interesting facts about P.T.: He made two unsuccessful runs for Congress and the Biology Department building at Tufts University (N.Y.) is named in his honor.

11. In Spanish, X and Y are named what?

From Quiz X & Y

Answer: equis and i griega

The letters I and Y are essentially identical in use and pronunciation in Spanish. They come to the language from Latin and Greek influences though, so "i" is called "i latina" and "y" is called "i griega".

12. Victoria was queen of England from 1837-1901. Who was her husband?

From Quiz Love, Alphabetically

Answer: Albert

From Quiz Artistic Alphabetics

Answer: Ludwig van Beethoven

Ludwig van Beethoven was born 16 December 1770. When he was young, Beethoven's father taught him music. Beethoven started losing his hearing in his late 20s/early 30s. By the time Beethoven finished composing his famous "Opus 67: Symphony No. 5 in C minor" in 1808, he was almost completely deaf. Though by 1814 Beethoven had totally lost his hearing, he was able to continue composing music by sawing off the legs of his piano so that he could better hear/feel the vibrations of the notes as he played. Beethoven never heard a single note of his "Opus 125: Symphony No. 9 in D minor", which was composed 1817-1824.

30. E is the most popular vowel in the English language, appearing more often than the others, so he might be said to be what?

From Quiz Where Is U?

Answer: Everywhere

"I was born in Europe," explains E, "during the era of empiricism. I built exceptional and exemplary edifices in Egypt and was enamored of Eurydice at one time. It was an enlightened and emancipated age. Euripides exited his own play one evening and embarked on eleven elaborate extravaganzas. No, I'm not exaggerating!" E is certainly not elliptical, he's not even round. E can be evasive at times, but he's usually easy to find. E becomes ecstatic on occasion, and enjoys expressing his exuberance. E was devastated to learn that an entire novel of over 50,000 words had been written in 1939 without using E. The novel "Gadsby" was written by one ErnEst VincEnt Wright. "You see," says E, "the author couldn't even put his name on the cover without me!"
