Mixed 10 Question General Knowledge Trivia Questions

1. What do a Frank Loesser song about an unhurried voyage to Cathay, a 1944 Alfred Hitchcock movie filmed entirely upon the open water, and an American nursery song which concludes that "life is but a dream" have in common?

From Quiz
FunTrivia General Knowledge Mix: Vol 17

Answer: boat

Harry Babbitt and Gloria Wood, singing with the Kay Kyser Orchestra, made the first recording of "(I'd Like to Get You on a) Slow Boat to China" in 1948. This was followed by a famous duet by Rosemary Clooney and Bing Crosby, and singles by Ella Fitzgerald, Joni James, Jimmy Buffett, Fats Domino and Liza Minnelli, a duet by Bette Midler and Barry Manilow, and another by Miss Piggy and actor Roger Moore. Hitchcock's "Lifeboat" starred Tallulah Bankhead, William Bendix, Walter Slezak, Mary Anderson, Hume Cronyn, and Canada Lee. The entire film takes place on a lifeboat launched from a ship attacked and sunk in World War II. Since at least 1852 (its earliest mention), "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" has been sung by American children and sometimes acted out with rowing motions. As with all such songs, there are variations, but the most commonly heard version is: "Row, row, row your boat. Gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily. Life is but a dream."

2. What is the connection between the flag of Albania, the flag of Mexico and a Lunar landing module?

From Quiz FunTrivia General Knowledge Mix: Vol 16

Answer: Eagle

Albania's flag features a double-headed eagle, Mexico's flag has an eagle holding a snake and Eagle was the name of the first craft to make a landing on the moon in 1969.

Question by player gme24

3. What does a small device used to store and transport computer memory, the athletic teams of Kent State University, and a style of writing extremely short stories (e.g. 300-1000 words), have in common?

From Quiz FunTrivia General Knowledge Mix: Vol 15

Answer: flash

A flash memory device or flash drive tends to be a small, transportable, inexpensive, and tough mechanism for recording (e.g. backing up) or transporting computer information. The ubiquitous thumb drive is an example. The official mascot of Kent State University is Flash the Golden Eagles. The school's sports teams are known as the Golden Flashes but sometimes just as the Flashes. The teams were originally called "the Silver Foxes" but a student election in 1927 adopted the present name. Originally called "short short stories" in the US, flash fiction has become its own genre in recent decades. The Chinese call such stories "smoke long" because the reader can light and finish a cigarette in the amount of time it takes to read them.

Question by player FatherSteve

4. In my boredom in the antique store, I picked up a pair of boxing gloves circa 1930s and started wondering who the boxer was that wore these when, unbidden, I asked out loud "what sort of creature was Boxer in George Orwell's book "Animal Farm"?

From Quiz I'll Take You To The Antique Shop

Answer: Horse

Orwell's beast fable, which was published in 1945, tells the tale of a group of anthropomorphic farm animals that rebel against their human masters, in the hope of creating their own utopian society, where all animals would be equal. The leaders of the revolution are the pigs, who are depicted as being extremely intelligent, able to grasp language easily and develop engineering skills at the drop of a hat. The pigs were originally inspired by Snowball, easily the smartest of the swine, but he is soon overthrown by Napoleon and has to flee for his life. Our hearts, though, are drawn to Boxer, an extremely strong and hardworking cart horse. We resonate with his kindness, loyalty and his dedication to the team. His major problem is that he's not the sharpest tool in the shed and is too gullible for his own good. We see this in his constant mantra that "Napoleon is always right" and in his steadfast belief that the solution to every problem is to "work harder". (Spoiler alert) He eventually meets an end that is neither dignified nor worthy of the life he led.

5. Several varieties of bacon jam, all of which are rather peculiarly classified as relish, and which shouldn't be available to children, contain which intoxicating ingredient?

From Quiz Anything Goes Number Eleven

Answer: Bourbon or Whiskey

The question that is puzzling about bacon jam is why it wasn't called relish to begin with, when it really isn't a jam at all? But no, it's not confused - or is it? Instead it originates in Wales and in Austria, with both nations claiming it as their invention first. The troublesome ingredient in many versions of this split personality jam/relish, which was either made first in Wales or Austria, and which makes it unsuitable for children, is that it contains either bourbon or Jack Daniel's - and people argue about that as well. Jack Daniel's is made almost the same as bourbon, and apparently has the same taste - but the manufacturers of this drink prefer to call it Tennessee Whiskey instead. Oh, and if you purchase a brand of this confusing product made by Martha Stewart, it contains coffee as well.

6. Besides being a "famous market town in England", what else is a Chesterfield?

From Quiz FunTrivia General Knowledge Mix: Vol 14

Answer: couch

The first Chesterfield (couch in the USA) was commissioned by Philip Stanhope, the 4th Earl of Chesterfield (1694-1773). These beautiful Chesterfield pieces are still hand-made and sold today. They are English in origin.

Question by player piper421

7. Which actor featured in all three of the great ensemble movies of the 1960s, namely "The Magnificent Seven", "The Great Escape" and "The Dirty Dozen"?

From Quiz Our Favourite Things: Vol.2

Answer: Charles Bronson

My favourite Movie is "The Magnificent Seven", which features Charles Bronson as one of the seven. The movie is an English language remake of the Japanese film, "Seven Samurai". Charles Bronson played Bernardo O'Reilly in "The Magnificent Seven", then Danny 'The Tunnel King' in "The Great Escape" and Wladislaw in "The Dirty Dozen". Robert Vaughan appeared only in "The Magnificent Seven". Steve McQueen and James Coburn appeared in "The Magnificent Seven" and "The Great Escape". I love "The Magnificent Seven" and everything about it including the soundtrack. I have a 6' x 4' framed print of the seven. Because I liked "The Magnificent Seven" so much I bought the VHS then the DVD of "Seven Samurai" which I also now love. Question submitted by Desimac.

8. The Earth takes about 24 hours to complete a full rotation on its axis, we call it a day. Hold on, why the rush? Which planet in our solar system rotates so slowly that it takes about 243 Earth days to complete just one rotation?

From Quiz Why the Rush?

Answer: Venus

While the Earth takes about 24 hours to complete an orbit, the neighbouring planet Venus rotates incredibly slowly in the opposite direction. It takes Venus approximately 243 Earth days to complete one single rotation. This is longer than the planet's orbit around the Sun, which takes about 225 Earth days. As a result, the planet has a peculiar day-night cycle, with a Venusian day lasting longer than a Venusian year. The fastest rotating planet in our solar system is Jupiter. Jupiter completes one full rotation on its axis in just under ten hours, making it the speediest rotator among the major planets.

9. In the U.S., Concorde is almost synonymous with New York City, but it also served other destinations in the US. Which city was served by Concorde services run by Braniff International Airways?

From Quiz Did You Know...?

Answer: Dallas

Braniff International Airways had been one of the American airlines to have placed an order for Concorde when it was first offered for sale, putting in a bid to purchase three aircraft in 1966. The energy crisis of the early 1970s saw this order subsequently cancelled in 1973, but the airline retained an interest in using the aircraft. As a result, in December 1978, during a period when Braniff was implementing a major expansion programme, it entered agreements with British Airways and Air France to lease up to 11 Concordes to run domestic services between Washington, D.C. and Dallas. These would operate as extensions of the British Airways and Air France flights to the capital, with their crews exchanged for Braniff's own crews, who would take the aircraft on as a domestic flight to Dallas. The first scheduled flights took place on 12 January 1979, with one aircraft each from British Airways and Air France landing at Dallas-Forth Worth International Airport simultaneously. Owing to the restriction on supersonic flight over land, Braniff's services were limited to a high of Mach 0.95. Despite this, they were still able to take 20 minutes off the flight time to Dallas of an equivalent short-haul airliner. However, the service never gained popularity with the public, with passenger loads rarely more than 50%. As a result, Braniff ended its leasing arrangements and terminated the service in May 1980.

10. Which popular TV show starred Larry Hagman and Barbara Eden?

From Quiz I'll Bet You Didn't Know

Answer: Dallas

Larry Hagman and Barbara Eden starred on "I Dream of Jeannie" together for five seasons. However, less known is that they were both stars of "Dallas". While Larry Hagman was with the show from the very beginning, Barbara Eden joined the cast in the final season as LeeAnn De La Vega, a businesswoman who once had a fling with J.R. and briefly purchased Ewing Oil to get revenge on him.

11. Although the 1970 movie "Cromwell" is historically inaccurate, it is one of my favourite movies. Which actor portrays Charles I?

From Quiz Our Favourite Things

Answer: Alec Guinness

Alec Guinness gives a superb performance as Charles I in the movie "Cromwell" starring Richard Harris as Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of England 1653 - 1658. The movie depicts the rise to supreme power of Oliver Cromwell, during the English civil wars 1642 to 1649, and the fall from grace and execution of Charles I, in 1649. The movie also features many British stalwarts of the stage and screen such as Robert Morley as the Earl of Manchester, Frank Finlay as John Carter, Nigel Stock as Sir Edward Hyde, Geoffrey Keen as John Pym, Douglas Wilmer as Sir Thomas Fairfax, Michael Goodliffe as the Solicitor Genderal, Dorothy Tutin as Queen Henrietta Maria, Zena Walker as Elizabeth Cromwell and Timothy Dalton as Prince Rupert. Alec Guinness had been acting since 1934 when his pay was £1 per week. His biggest pay day was working on "Star Wars" where he earned $7 million immediately and more than $100 million by the time of his death in 2000 aged 86. Question submitted by shipyardbernie

12. For a century and a half, the small town of Strong, Maine had a nickname. It's not something one would normally associate with the state. What was the town called?

From Quiz A Bit of This and a Bit of That

Answer: Toothpick Capital of the World

Boston businessman Charles Forster took a trip to Portugal in the mid-nineteenth century. He became interested in toothpicks, which had been around for centuries. Forster returned to Boston intent on making his own toothpicks using shoe-pegging equipment. He selected white birch for the wood he intended to use and the town of Strong for his business due to the many trees located there. The operation closed down in 2003 and nowadays the toothpick industry, like so many others, has moved to other locations around the world.

13. What is the condition for saying that an "en caul" birth occurred?

From Quiz Can't Think of a Title

Answer: When the baby was born encased in his amniotic sac

During pregnancy, the fetus is wrapped in the amniotic sac that protects and helps him or her to be fed. This sac normally ruptures when the baby is born. However, sometimes, the baby comes out still inside or partially wrapped in the amniotic sac, leaving the medical team to "unwrap" the baby. A "caul" birth occurs when the baby is born with a small piece of the membrane or sac covering his or her face or head. An "en caul" birth, also called "mermaid birth" or "veiled birth", is when the baby is born encased in the amniotic sac or caul (veil), wrapped in a soft bubble. This is a rare event, which occurs more frequently when the baby is delivered in cesarean section birth. This fact poses no risk to either the mother or the baby. As the "en caul" birth is a rare event, in many cultures it is considered a miracle. Among other things, it is believed that both the baby and his family will have good luck.

14. The band Earth, Wind and Fire would like you very much to remember the lyrics to one of their songs. It goes something like: "Do you remember / the 21st night of ______?"

From Quiz Eclectic Medley

Answer: September

Released in 1978, it became one of the most iconic songs from Earth, Wind and Fire. It was added to the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry in 2018 for preservation of culturally significant works and was number 65 in Rolling Stone's "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list, updated in 2021. You probably have heard it in countless weddings, parties and commercial advertisements.

15. When did the Canadian government officially proclaim "O Canada" as the national anthem for the country of Canada?

From Quiz Just General Knowledge

Answer: 1980

The music for "O Canada" was written by Calixa Lavallée in 1880. The French lyrics to the anthem were written by Sir Adolphe-Basile Routhier in 1880 as well. The English lyrics varied over the years until The Honourable Robert Stanley Weir wrote a poem that became popular lyrics for the song in 1908. The Government of Canada proclaimed "O Canada" as the official anthem on July 1, 1980. When "O Canada" was proclaimed as the official anthem, the first verse (English version) was "O Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love in all they sons command." In order to make that gender neutral, the government passed legislation in January, 2018 that officially changed the third line to "True patriot love in all of us command".

16. "Stay at home" has always been one of the first orders given by governments when an epidemic/pandemic hits. Who, during an epidemic seeing the streets empty, wrote: "But Lord! how sad a sight it is to see the streets empty of people..."?

From Quiz What's up in this Quiz? 4

Answer: Samuel Pepys, an English diarist

These words could have been written by Jacinda Ardern, Pope Francis, or Tedros Adhanom at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. But this phrase appears in the diaries of Samuel Pepys (1633-1703), who worked in the administration of the British Navy and was a Member of Parliament. In the period 1660-1669, Pepys kept a detailed diary of his activities and the events he witnessed, such as the Great Plague and the Great Fire of London. In his diary, there are countless observations on the measures taken by the Government to control the plague and the things he observed. On August 16, 1665, he wrote: "But Lord! how sad a sight it is to see the streets empty of people ... ".

17. Jackie Robinson played on which Canadian baseball team before making his historic debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947?

From Quiz A Bit of This and That

Answer: Montreal Royals

The Montreal Royals were a minor league baseball team and the top farm club for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Robinson played for the Royals for one season in 1946. During that season, he faced racial resistance from his own manager as well as his teammates but helped his team to win the Little World Series. He was named MVP of the league for that season and led the league with a .349 batting average. Montreal fans very enthusiastically supported him and he helped to sell tickets as the small league saw more than one million people attend games. In 1947, he was called up to the major leagues and made his debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 11, 1947.

18. What word listed below is NOT a term meaning coffee?

From Quiz A Panoply of Trivia 5

Answer: Lager

Though it is unclear, the origin of coffee may come from Ethiopia where their oral tradition refers to the drink for a really long time. Nevertheless, the first documented instances of coffee come from the 15th century at the earliest. The origin of the name is from the Dutch term 'koffie' which was used back in 1582, which may come from the Arabic word for 'power' ('quwwa'), or for the term for 'a lack of hunger' ('qaha'), referring to the suppressing of one's appetite while drinking coffee. Some think that it refers to the ancient Ethiopian kingdom of Kaffe, but there is a lot of dispute about this reference.

19. At the end of the 20th century, how many transport tunnels were there under the river Mersey in England?

From Quiz The Misplaced General Knowledge Quiz Vol.8

Answer: Three

The Mersey railway tunnel between Birkenhead and Liverpool was opened in 1886 by the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII. The Queensway road tunnel between Birkenhead and Liverpool was opened in 1934 by George V. The Kingsway road tunnel between Wallasey and Liverpool was opened in 1971 by Elizabeth II.
