Yellow/Gold Trivia Questions

1. Saffron is a plant known since antiquity. In the Bible (King James Version) the word "saffron" is mentioned how many times?

From Quiz
Snippets of Saffron Sapience

Answer: Once

The word "saffron" is mentioned only once in the Bible and it appears in Song of Solomon 4:14. In this verse Solomon praises his bride and mentions several aromatic spices including the saffron, in order to exalt his bride's beauty.

2. Which Bond villain sported a superfluous papilla in "The Man with the Golden Gun"?

From Quiz It's All Golden

Answer: Scaramanga

Polymastia is the medical term that refers to the appearance of a supernumerary nipple. Interestingly, scientists named the gene that produces proteins to signal embryonic cells to become breast tissue the "Scaramanga Gene" after the character, played by Christopher Lee.

3. Television: Everyone is familiar with the Beatles' 'Yellow Submarine' but which children's television show features a yellow submarine?

From Quiz Just Y?

Answer: Thunderbirds

'Thunderbirds' was a Gerry Anderson production featuring marionettes that aired in 1964. Despite there only being 32 episodes in the original series, it has spawned a 2004 movie and a CGI series that commenced in 2014. Thunderbird Four is a yellow submersible that is transported to the danger zone inside Thunderbird Two's Pod Four. This question was supplied by leith90, with no strings attached.

4. A golden wedding anniversary is celebrated after how many years of marriage?

From Quiz A Golden Thread

Answer: 50 years

A silver wedding represents 25 years, a pearl wedding 30 years and a ruby wedding 40.

5. The quality of gold jewelry is often described in terms of "carats", with 24-carat gold being the purest. How do jewelers figure out how many carats a particular piece is?

From Quiz 24 Carat

Answer: Using the amount of gold (by MASS) in the piece

Gold is a soft and malleable metal, so it is often alloyed with other metals just to make the piece sturdier -- but, of course, that also usually means that the piece is cheaper to make! To calculate the purity of a gold alloy in carats, you take the total mass of gold in the piece, divide it by the total mass of the piece, and then multiply the whole thing by 24. Something that's 100% gold is thus 24 carats, something that's 75% gold is 18 carats, and so on. Something that's say, 50% gold by mass may not be 50% gold by volume; it all depends on the characteristics of the other metal in the alloy. You'll often see "carat" abbreviated "k", since "karat" is another accepted spelling of the word.

6. I've always liked to read and I think it was because my parents started me off with fun, inexpensive children's books that have been published since 1942. Which long-running series is it?

From Quiz They Were All Yellow

Answer: Little Golden Books

Published by Simon and Schuster in New York City, Little Golden Books started with twelve stories and grew from there. "The Poky Little Puppy" alone has sold over 15 million copies in several languages. At the time of its golden (50th) anniversary, Little Golden Books claimed that over 1.5 billion books had been sold.

7. In 1983, NBC aired a weekly TV series titled "The Yellow Rose". What was the Yellow Rose?

From Quiz Hello, Yellow!

Answer: A 200,000 acre ranch

"The Yellow Rose" was a ranch outside of San Antonio, Texas run by a former bull rider named Wade Champion. After Wade died, his widow Colleen (Cybill Shepherd) took over running the ranch with Wade's two adult sons, Roy and Quisto. The series first aired on October 2, 1983 and ended its first and final season on May 12, 1984.

8. What is the connection between a 1973 album (and song) by Elton John and the 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz"?

From Quiz Yellow: Blue's Complement

Answer: Brick Road

"Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" is the name of Elton John's 1973 album and the title track ballad from it. In the film, Dorothy is told to follow the yellow brick road to the Emerald City in order to find her way home. Songwriter Bernie Taupin is said to have been inspired by the 1939 film. The film was based on the children's novel "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" by L Frank Baum. Due to popular demand, L Frank Baum eventually wrote 13 sequels although none were originally planned. The song tells of a desire for a simpler life, rather than the trappings of success. There are plenty of allegorical interpretations for the book, however it is unclear that there were any intended by the author. Here's another yellow bit of trivia: Elton John's first concert in Vermont in 2008 inspired Ben and Jerry's to create a limited edition ice cream called 'Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road'.

9. "They Call Me Mellow Yellow" is a line from the song "Mellow Yellow". Which singer had a hit with this song in the 1960s?

From Quiz They Call Me Mellow Yellow

Answer: Donovan

"Mellow Yellow" was a hit for Scottish singer Donovan and featured on his album of the same name. It was released in November 1966 in the USA where it reached number 2 in the Billboard Hot 100. In the UK it was released in February 1967 and reached no 8 in the charts.

10. In England, if you were fortunate enough to have tickets to watch the Cheltenham Gold Cup, which sport would you expect to see?

From Quiz Sunshine

Answer: horse racing

The Cheltenham Gold Cup is a steeplechase comprising 22 fences, and one of the most famous horse racing events in England. It is run, as its name suggests, in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Inaugurated in 1819, the race, which takes place each March, has such notable winners in its history as Arkle, who won three times during the 1960s and, to expand the 'gold' theme of this quiz, Golden Miller, who won five races consecutively in the 1930s.

11. 'Fool's Gold' is a slang term for what actual compound?

From Quiz Silence Is Golden

Answer: Iron Pyrite

When I was five or six years old, we had a gravel driveway made with local crushed granite. One day I came running into the house with ten or twelve small stones from the driveway. I went straight to my father, proudly beaming, and saying: "Look! Look! Dad, we are rich. Look at all the gold we have from the driveway". My father, a mining engineer, proceeded gently to educate me on the differences between iron pyrite and real gold. Talk about deflation and disappointment! He then took me to a prospecting friend's home who had in his possession some beautiful gold nuggets and samples in quartz. I still see those nuggets in my mind's eye.

12. What is a Yellow-shafted Flicker?

From Quiz Hello Yellow

Answer: Bird

This is a large wood-pecker which can be found on the eastern part of north America. It has splashes of yellow here and there on its wings and tail.

13. Rehaberpro asks: "You may have been taught the 'Golden Rule', but do you remember what it is"?

From Quiz Knowledge Is Golden

Answer: One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself

Although this may strike you as Sunday School rhetoric, it has a base in nearly every major religion, as well as various moral and ethical codes. In Islam we find "Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you". Plato quoting Socrates wrote "One should never do wrong in return, nor mistreat any man, no matter how one has been mistreated by him". And from Taoism "Regard your neighbor's gain as your own gain, and your neighbor's loss as your own loss". And the list goes on.

14. Who wears the yellow jersey in the Tour de France?

From Quiz Mellow Yellow

Answer: The rider with the lowest cumulative time

The cyclist with the lowest cumulative time at the end of each stage is awarded the yellow jersey, or 'maillot jaune'. The yellow jersey entitles the rider to be the first starter on the next stage. The rider awarded the yellow jersey on the last day is the overall winner of the Tour de France.

15. In the English language, what human characteristic is associated with the color yellow?

From Quiz You Say Goodbye And I Say Yellow

Answer: cowardice

Each color has over the years been associated with a certain emotion or chracteristic in human culture. Yellow has always symbolized fear or cowardice. In American slang, a coward is often referred to as "yellow-bellied".

16. The Golden Boy stands on tiptoe on the dome of the Legislative Building in my hometown. Do you know where I am?

From Quiz Going for the Gold!

Answer: Winnipeg, Manitoba

The Golden Boy - all 5.25 metres of him (that's 17.2 feet if you don't do metric) - has stood atop the Legislature dome since he was hoisted into place in 1920 (except for a brief period in 2003, when he was taken down to have his gilding refurbished). He faces north, to the mineral-rich, forest-covered, hydro-electric power-generating region of Manitoba that represents much of the wealth of this province. He's had an interesting history. He was created by French sculptor Charles Gardet in 1918, cast in bronze and gilded with gold leaf at the Barbidienne Foundry near Paris. The Foundry was all but destroyed in a bombing raid, but the Golden Boy was unscathed. He was transported to the coast and loaded onto a ship bound for Canada. However, the ship was commandeered to be used as a troop transport vessel, and for months, the Golden Boy lay in the hold while the ship covered thousands of ocean miles, delivering and picking up troops. With the end of World War One, the Golden Boy finally made his way to Canada, where the ship carrying him docked in Halifax, Nova Scotia. From there he travelled by train and arrived in Winnipeg just in time to be hoisted into place for the opening ceremonies of the new Legislative Building. In his left arm he carries a sheaf of wheat (another symbol of the wealth of Manitoba) and in his raised right hand he bears a torch, symbolically lighting the way to a bright future. For many years, until the advent of high-rise buildings, the tip of the Golden Boy's torch was the highest point in the city at 77 metres (255 feet) above ground level.

17. Golden retrievers are one of the most popular breeds in North America, but where was the breed developed?

From Quiz Gold in Them Thar Hills

Answer: Scotland

They are a fairly recent breed, developed in the late 1800s by Lord Tweedmouth. He wanted the "perfect" hunting dog that also looks beautiful. The result is a handsome, sweet-tempered, intelligent dog that is capable of sitting quietly for long periods, has a soft mouth for retrieving game and works well with other dogs and hunters.

18. Who did Zeus visit as a golden shower?

From Quiz A Golden Fleece of Trivia

Answer: Danae

A prophesy foretold that Acrisius would be killed by his grandson. He locked his daughter in a tower in an effort to prevent his future murder, but Zeus was able to enter the window as a shower of gold. He impregnated Danae and she later gave birth to the Greek hero Perseus.

19. Colorful pioneer, scout, hunter and rider for the Pony Express, Buffalo Bill, was buried in the city of 'Golden' in which U.S. state?

From Quiz Everything's Golden

Answer: Colorado

Golden, Colorado, is about a 15 minute drive from Denver.

20. Who is most likely to receive a generous "golden handshake"?

From Quiz It's All Golden

Answer: A Chief Executive Officer

A golden handshake is a perk in a high-ranking executive's employment contract. It is essentially a generous severance package in the case that the executive loses their job through firing or restructuring. The term originated in Britain having been coined by the city editor of the Daily Express, Frederick Ellisin, in the mid-1960s. These "handshakes" are generally reserved for the top executives in major organizations.

21. In the United States, a yellow traffic light signals a driver to behave in what way while driving a car?

From Quiz Hello, Yellow!

Answer: Be cautious and/or prepare to stop

An American traffic signal has three lights: red, yellow and green. A red light in America means to stop the car, while a yellow light means to proceed with caution and prepare to stop at any time. A green light means it is safe to drive on. A flashing yellow signal light is a warning light for oncoming traffic. A yellow traffic light has a federal safety minimum of a three second wait time.

22. Yellow is the colour of food seasoned with what is often called the world's most expensive spice. What is it?

From Quiz Yellow: Blue's Complement

Answer: Saffron

Collected by hand from a crocus flower (Crocus sativus), the spice has been traded for over 4,000 years. This variety of crocus does not occur in the wild, is male sterile and is typically propagated by vegetative reproduction (the corms or bulbs are dug up, split up and replanted). There is a one or two week period in autumn when the crocus flowers. The flowers emerge around dawn and quickly wilt during the day so rapid picking is required. Around 150 flowers will produce a gram of the dried spice. Most of the world's production comes from Iran.

23. The soft drink Mello Yello is made by which company?

From Quiz They Call Me Mellow Yellow

Answer: Coca-Cola Company

Mello Yello was introduced in the US in 1979 as Coca-Cola's alternative to Mountain Dew made by their rivals Pepsi. It is a caffeinated soft drink, primarily citrus flavoured, although other flavours including cherry and peach have been released as limited edition flavours in the past.

24. Yellow appears in many song lyrics. What shade of yellow appears in the first line of the song "Mellow Yellow"?

From Quiz Ten Things Yellow

Answer: Saffron

"Mellow Yellow" was first recorded by Scottish songwriter Donovan in 1966. Its first line is: "I'm just mad about saffron". The song, which has a psychedelic feel to it, has been theorized to be about smoking banana skins (among other strange themes).

25. It is well known that Dame Shirley Bassey performed the memorable theme song to the 'James Bond' film 'Goldfinger' but which singer performed the theme song to the other 'gold' title in the 'Bond' series, 'GoldenEye'?

From Quiz Sunshine

Answer: Tina Turner

'GoldenEye', released in 1995, featured Tina Turner singing the theme song of the same title. It was the seventeenth 'Bond' film, and marked Pierce Brosnan's debut as Bond, the first of four films in which he starred as 007. Dame Shirley Bassey has performed three 'Bond' theme songs. As well as 'Goldfinger' (1964), she also repeated her success with 'Diamonds Are Forever' (1971) and again in 1979 for 'Moonraker'. All the singers above have sung a 'Bond' theme song; Sheena Easton for 'For Your Eyes Only', Gladys Knight for 'Licence to Kill' and Rita Coolidge for 'All Time High', which was the theme song for 'Octopussy'.

26. In what kind of mining are gold nuggets usually found?

From Quiz Silence Is Golden

Answer: Placer Mining

Gold nuggets are usually created when the surrounding rock has been worn away generally by water erosion. The nuggets are frequently found when panning for gold or in crevices. Also, gold is a very malleable mineral; if several pieces are in close contact, they will meld together through pressure. The largest nuggets on record are from Australia. The 'Welcome Stranger' nugget was discovered at Moliagul, Victoria, Australia in 1869. The gold mines of Northern Ontario where I worked had gold in granite which was not susceptible to water erosion; therefore, nuggets are a rarity.

27. On which southern continent can the Thorny Yellowwood tree be found?

From Quiz Hello Yellow

Answer: Australia

This pretty tree lives in the rainforests of the states of New South Wales and Queensland. It grows to approximately fifteen metres (around forty-six feet) in height, has a very rough bark, and dark green, glossy leaves. When it flowers from October to November, its flowers are a pink or red colour with a yellow centre - and insects go wild about their nectar at this time. It bears fruit from February to May. The wood from this tree is a dark yellow colour, hence the name, and it is used for decorative pieces.

28. Dr. No asks: "In 'Goldfinger' (1964), which actor's real voice is only heard in one scene although he is one of the major characters in the film"?

From Quiz Knowledge Is Golden

Answer: Gert Frobe (Auric Goldfinger)

Michael Collins' voice was dubbed in for all of Frobe's lines, except in the scene at Auric Stud where Goldfinger (Frobe) meets with the Mafia. Various attempts were made to use Frobe's real voice, but with limited English and having to speak phonetically, he couldn't achieve the necessary speed/tempo for his own voice to be dubbed in.

29. What Shakespearean play contains the following line - "He will come to her in yellow stockings, and 'tis a color she abhors, and cross-gartered, a fashion she detests."?

From Quiz Mellow Yellow

Answer: Twelfth Night

"Twelfth Night" is one of Shakespeare's comedies and the plot centres on mistaken identity. The yellow stockings are worn by Malvolio who has been fooled into believing that Olivia is in love with him and wants him to wear yellow cross gartered stockings.

30. Blonde hair was highly desirable in ancient Rome and Greece for many unusual purposes. What was NOT one of the uses of blonde hair?

From Quiz The Blonde Quiz

Answer: To consume for medicinal purposes

The ancient Romans and Greeks adored blonde hair, and aristocratic ladies tried many tricks to bleach or lighten their hair color. Additionally, blonde hair would often be cut from North European female captives and then be used to create robes, wigs, and hair pieces. (Smith, "A Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities," 2007).
