Family Life Trivia Questions

1. Animals: Your sister got a hearing-ear dog. What color collar and leash will it most likely have?

From Quiz
So, Your Sister is Deaf

Answer: orange

Hearing ear dogs help people who are deaf. They might come over and paw at you for instance if the fire alarm goes off. Or if you are are asleep and the fire alarm goes off they could wake you up.

2. What other name are blind people known by?

From Quiz The World of the Blind

Answer: Visually impaired

A partially sighted person has limited sight. The other two terms (virtually impaired and visually incapable) don't exist!

3. Peter's mom and Mary's mom are sisters. How are Peter and Mary related?

From Quiz How Are They Related?

Answer: They are matrilineal ortho-cousins

"Matrilineal" means they related through their mothers. "Ortho" means the parents through which they are related are of the same gender.

4. Among products such as olive oil, pomegranate pulp and ginger, the juice from what other plant was once believed to be an effective contraceptive?

From Quiz There's Many a Slip Betwixt Cup and Lip

Answer: Tobacco Juice

The juice from these products was smeared in and all around the vagina prior to intercourse. It was believed that the juice killed or slowed down the sperm before it reached the egg.

5. School-age children often have boundless energy. What else is accurate about them?

From Quiz School-Age Children

Answer: They are less likely to become ill than preschoolers

School-age children appear to be heartier than their younger and older counterparts. Phyllis M. Click, Child Development specialist, states: "Illnesses and death occur less frequently than during infancy and preschool years or later in adolescence". ("Caring For School-Age Children," 2006). Additionally, while school-age children grow more independent with each year, they still rely on greater adult assistance than do teenagers.

6. What is the name of the gland that governs lactation?

From Quiz Lactation

Answer: pituitary

The pituitary gland produces growth hormone for normal development of height and prolactin for milk production. This small pea sized gland also affects other vital body functions including metabolism, sexuality and reproduction.

7. Oh no! You seem to have ended up with lipstick on your collar at the office party. Your wife is going to be pretty ticked off! Quick, what do you do?

From Quiz Nasty Predicaments and Life's Little Pickles

Answer: Grab the toothpaste

Toothpaste is the best choice to remove that lipstick stain. Just rub a little toothpaste on the spot and wash as normal. Hairspray is also a good pre-washing agent, along with petroleum jelly or vinegar.

8. Brain Teasers: As an American, what language does your sister most likely communicate with? To find out, figure out this fractured form: Aim Air I Cane Sine Lang Goo Wedge

From Quiz So, Your Sister is Deaf

Answer: American Sign Language & ASL

American Sign Language or ASL is the 4th most commonly used language in America. It was influenced by French sign language which can be seen in some signs. For example, "to look for" in French is "chercher" and the sign for "to look for" is made with a C hand not an L hand. In ASL, you don't always sign every word but rather the important words. Instead of saying "I'm happy with you" you would sign "I Happy You". It is important to note not all deaf people use ASL. Some are oral, and some use both methods together which is known as total communication. There is a debate in the Deaf community about whether or not the Deaf should speak or not.

9. A guest has gotten overly enthusiastic during his New Year's toast and managed to pour half of his Cabernet onto your pristine white tablecloth. Once the New Year is rung in and all have left, how do you address the tablecloth?

From Quiz Solution

Answer: White wine or salt

When you serve red wine, keep white wine nearby. If red wine is spilled, pour white over it and blot with paper towels. Repeat till most of the stain is gone. Bring tablecloth to sink or large bowl and pour club soda through the stain. Pre-treat and wash as usual. OR you can cover the fresh red wine stain with salt and work it into the fabric to abrade the wine, flush out with club soda, blot and wash. There are a few other methods but these two usually work. If they don't, consider tie-dying the tablecloth or cutting it up as rags. Hot water tends to set stains, so use cool to cold.

10. Jane's dad and Andrew's mom are siblings. How are Jane and Andrew related?

From Quiz How Are They Related?

Answer: Jane is Andrew's matrilineal cross-cousin and Andrew is Jane's patrilineal cross-cousin

They are "cross" cousins because the parents through whom they are related are of different genders. Jane is Andrew's matrilineal cousin because she comes from his his mother's line; Andrew is Jane's patrilineal cousin because he comes from her father's side.

11. The most common way a surrogate gets impregnated is when the father's sperm is implanted into the surrogate's womb. This process is known as...?

From Quiz Womb for Rent

Answer: Artificial insemination

In the case of artificial insemination, the surrogate is both the genetic and birth mother of the child. This has raised some legal issues regarding parental rights and the surrogate would have to allow the child to be adopted by the father and his partner.

12. In Ancient Egypt, another less delightful substance was mixed with honey or the juice of certain trees and was then inserted into the vagina prior to intercourse. It was believed to prevent pregnancies. Which product was this?

From Quiz There's Many a Slip Betwixt Cup and Lip

Answer: Crocodile Dung

There is evidence from around 1850-2000 BC of the Egyptian belief that an ingredient in crocodile dung would prevent women from falling pregnant.

13. What is a milk bank?

From Quiz Lactation

Answer: a place that distributes donor milk to mothers and babies in need

As of 2005 there are 9 milk banks in the U.S. and one in Canada, but funding is a persistent issue so that number could have changed at the time of this writing. Doctors need to prescribe it and some insurance companies will cover some of the cost. Some babies cannot tolerate formula. Search for Human Milk Banking Association of North America for the history of milk banking, details about processing, donating and locations.

14. In the good old days, the girl would be getting all dressed up to look her best. The boy, if he was old enough to drive, would borrow his parent's car and come over and get you. What did he do when he got to your home?

From Quiz Remember the Old Dating Techniques?

Answer: Got out of the car, rang the doorbell and met your parents.

Yes, the older generation always got out of the car, went up to the door, rang the bell and waited for someone to answer the door. You had to meet mom and dad to make sure that they knew where you were going also. If dad didn't approve, trust me, there would not be a second date.

15. Celebrities: This actress is deaf and a role model to your sister and many other people. She won the Oscar in 1987 for her role as Sarah in "Children of a Lesser God". Who is she?

From Quiz So, Your Sister is Deaf

Answer: Marlee Matlin

Matlin was born August 24, 1965. At the time of her winning she was the youngest person to ever win the Oscar for Best Actress at age 21. In 1993, she married Kevin Grandalski. In 2011, she became a series regular guest star on the TV show "Switched at Birth" as Melody the school counselor at Carlton, the school for the deaf (originally--now hearing people go there as well). The show is about two girls who were switched at birth when they were born. One of the girls, Daphne is deaf.

16. What is the best way of putting out a fat/oil fire on a stove top?

From Quiz Home Fire Safety

Answer: Cover it with a fire blanket

You should never attempt to remove a pot from an active stove top fire. Cover it with a fire blanket, and then turn off the source of heat. Once it has cooled, remove the fire blanket and then move the pot. Quite often these fires occur when the cook is distracted.

17. The cat/dog/budgerigar has clawed at the rug and created a quarter sized hole in it. What to do?

From Quiz Solution

Answer: Fill the hole with same or similar carpet and color to match

First of all, do not take it out on your furred or feathered friends. Any swatch of similar carpeting will do if it fills the hole. You can get creative and make that one spot fuchsia, or you can attempt to duplicate the original carpet design. A good dab of super glue or similar sticky stuff should anchor it properly and it wouldn't hurt if you left a heavy book lying on it for a couple days. Then color it to match.

18. Lily's and April's dads are identical twins. How are Lily and April related?

From Quiz How Are They Related?

Answer: They are patrilineal ortho-cousins

The girls' fathers being identical twins is irrelevant. They are brothers, so their children are patrilineal (related through fathers) ortho (parents through whom they are related are of the same gender) cousins.

19. Less often, both the man and woman are fertile, but the woman can't carry a fetus to full term, so the fertilized eggs are implanted in a surrogate mother. This process is also called...

From Quiz Womb for Rent

Answer: gestational surrogacy

In vitro fertilization is the process in which the egg and sperm are combined, traditional surrogacy is when the mother is artificially inseminated, and nine months of waiting is the usual gestation period.

20. Soranus, an ancient Greek physician, suggested that Greek women should do what after having intercourse?

From Quiz There's Many a Slip Betwixt Cup and Lip

Answer: Jump backwards very forcefully seven times

Soranus of Ephesus lived during the 1st-2nd centuries AD. He was an ancient physician who dealt with gynecological issues. He recommended this hearty exercise as it was believed by the Greeks to re-route or dislodge any sperm following intercourse.

21. After his capture, my father was imprisoned at which German prison camp, one that gained notoriety for its inhumane conditions and was the basis for the movie named after the camp?

From Quiz My Father, My Hero

Answer: Stalag 17-B

Stalag 17-B was located in Germany, six km from Krems, Austria. Originally designed for 240 men, Barracks 17-B housed 4,237 prisoners after only three months of occupancy. The entire camp contained 29,794 prisoners at its peak occupancy. Many of the men died of starvation, dysentery, weather and infection. The prisoners were liberated on May 2, 1945, one year after Normandy. They were force-marched out of the camp; along the way, all of the guards were either killed by the prisoners or ran away. They reached safety and were liberated by the 3rd Army. Although the season was late spring, the weather was extremely cold and the men lacked proper clothing. A number of them died along the march. The movie, "Stalag XVII", was made in 1953 and also became the basis for the television series, "Hogan's Heroes". There actually was a sergeant among the guards sharing the name of "I know nothingggg!" Schultz in the TV series, spelled "Scholtz". The men also dug a tunnel in an effort to escape. My father, who was 6'3" tall, weighed 95 pounds when liberated.

22. Recent studies indicate that breastfeeding may reduce the risk of ___________to a moderate degree.

From Quiz Lactation

Answer: obesity

Though the benefit may be of moderate degree, given the concern regarding obesity in some countries of the world, this benefit may still be of public health significance.

23. When setting up a 12-foot ladder against a house, how far should the base of the ladder be placed away from the wall?

From Quiz How Safe are You?

Answer: 3 feet

The proper ratio is 25% or 1/4. An eight-foot ladder should be placed two feet away from a wall. Placing a ladder too far from the structure may result in ladder failure, as most are not made to withstand an increased horizontal weight support.

24. Some of the 'Old Wive's Tales' had merit. What was often used in the past as a solution for halitosis?

From Quiz Solution

Answer: Snuffing beet juice up one's nose

Drinking carrot wine was, of course, used to aid in conception. Pumpkin seed tea helped cure bed-wetting problems. Singed old walnut kernels in warm wine were often used as a cure for baldness. You merely drink the concoction, and your hair supposedly wouldn't fall out. Several cures for halitosis included: chewing dill seeds or juniper berries, chewing parsley leaves or caraway seeds, and drinking wine with thistles in it. If none of these worked, you could console yourself that halitosis was better than no breath at all! Or you could snuffle the beet juice.

25. On the other hand, parents might lie about the effects of which drink, claiming it stops children from growing?

From Quiz Lies My Parents Told Me

Answer: Coffee

Coffee is occasionally portrayed as something that will prevent children from growing, because for some time it was believed that caffeine led to bone mass reduction. Even though that is not an actual effect of coffee, there are other reasons why parents might want to deter their kids from drinking it, such as possible insomnia.

26. Which screen-reading software can be used by a blind person to navigate his PC?

From Quiz The World of the Blind

Answer: JAWS

JAWS, also known as Job Access With Speech, reads everything which appears on a PC screen out loud. It can be set to different speeds, depending on one's ability to use it. TALKS is the mobile version. ZoomText is more helpful for partially sighted people as it increases the size of the text on-screen.

27. Oliver is Ellen's son. Mark is Ellen's brother. Irene is Mark's wife. How are Oliver and Irene related?

From Quiz How Are They Related?

Answer: Irene is Oliver's aunt; Oliver is Irene's nephew.

Mark is Oliver's uncle (he is his mother's brother). This makes his wife Oliver's aunt. There is no such thing as an aunt-in-law.

28. How far back does surrogate motherhood date?

From Quiz Womb for Rent

Answer: Biblical times

Some people say that the first known recorded case of surrogacy occurred in the Bible, book of Genesis, chapter 16. Abraham fathered a child with his wife's servant because his wife was unable to produce an heir.
