Fiendishly Difficult General Knowledge Trivia Questions

1. Which American president is associated with the "Corrupt Bargain"?

From Quiz
Strange Facts You Don't Need to Know

Answer: John Quincy Adams

The presidential election of 1824 was very unusual. The old Federalist Party had pretty much disappeared, leaving only the Democratic-Republican Party to contest the election. But this didn't mean there was only one candidate for president; in fact, there four major candidates, all of whom won electoral votes: John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, Henry Clay, and William H. Crawford. Andrew Jackson won a plurality of both the popular vote and the electoral vote, but not a majority. This meant that the election would be decided by the House of Representatives, where each state delegation received one vote. Only the top three vote-getters in the general election were eligible to be considered, and Henry Clay, who finished fourth, threw his support to Adams. John Quincy Adams was elected on the first ballot, carrying 13 states, as opposed to seven for Jackson, and four for Crawford. When Adams subsequently named Clay to be Secretary of State in his new administration, Jackson and his supporters were outraged, and claimed that Adams and Clay had struck a "corrupt bargain" whereby Clay became Adams' heir apparent. The scandal resulted in a splintering of the Democratic-Republican Party into the Democrats and Whigs. Jackson defeated Adams in their rematch in 1828.

2. How long is the average life span of a red blood cell?

From Quiz A Little Bit of Everything 4

Answer: King

King Camp Gillette was born in 1855 in Wisconsin. At the age of 17 he became a travelling salesman for the man that had invented cork-lined bottle caps. That's where he learned that disposable items made for recurrent sales. In 1895 he had his breakthrough idea of disposable razorblades, but it took another six years to iron out the technical difficulties. The breakthrough came when Gillette razors were issued to the American troops in WWI. Many found them convenient and continued to use them when they came back home.

4. In the game of Cricket, how many different ways are there of being given "out"?

From Quiz Tricky General Knowledge
