Trivia Questions About Everything Trivia Questions

1. History: Which U.S. president did NOT die on July 4th?

From Quiz
Smorgasbord 2.0

Answer: James Madison

Ironically, three of the first five presidents died on July 4th. Adams and Jefferson both died on the same day in 1826. James Monroe died five years later, in 1831. James Madison, the fourth President of the United States, died of heart failure on June 28, 1836.

2. Long associated with rainbows and pots of gold, leprechauns are depicted as having what profession?

From Quiz The Misfits

Answer: Cobblers

Leprechauns are depicted as sprite-like mischievous creatures clothed in green with silver buckles on their shoes. They weren't always like this though, originally they were very tall and dressed in red. They have always, and still do, enjoy playing tricks on people. The idea that leprechauns are cobblers come from the origins of their names. One school of thought is that the name Leprechaun (or leiprechán in Irish Gaelic) is derived from leithbrágan, which means half (leith) and brogue (brog). Although they like to hide their gold in pots at the ends of rainbows, there has never been any mention of them being alchemists.

3. Which author created the character Maggie Tulliver?

From Quiz This and That

Answer: George Eliot

Maggie Tulliver is the main character in George Eliot's novel 'The Mill on the Floss'. George Eliot was a pen name for Mary Anne Evans who was born in 1819 in Warwickshire England. She took a pen name because it was not considered respectable for a woman to be a writer.

4. For which movie did Humphrey Bogart win the Academy Award for Best Actor?

From Quiz The Misplaced General Knowledge Quiz Vol.4

Answer: The African Queen

Humphrey Bogart was nominated three times for the best actor academy award, for "Casablanca" 1942, "The African Queen" 1951 and "The Caine Mutiny" 1954. At the 24th Academy Awards in 1952 he won the Oscar for his portrayal of Charlie Allnut in "The African Queen" starring Katharine Hepburn, Robert Morley, Peter Bull and Theodore Bikel. Bogart's lines in the original screenplay called for a cockney accent but the script was rewritten and his character became a Canadian. Question submitted by shipyardbernie

5. Geography: What is the only sea that has no coasts?

From Quiz The Sequel to Nothing in Particular

Answer: Sargasso Sea

The Sargasso Sea is the only sea on the earth that does not have a coastline. It is located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The water is interestingly warm and very calm. it gets its name from the Sargassum seaweed that lives in the area.

6. Who, in 1865, founded Christian charitable organisation, The Salvation Army?

From Quiz All Sorts, But No Licorice

Answer: William Booth

Booth founded The Salvation Army in London with his wife Catherine to further Booth's aim of spreading "the good news of Jesus Christ and his love for all". By the mid 1880s, the organisation had spread to USA, France and Sweden as well as most of the countries that formed the British Empire. In 2017, it was reported it had over 1.5 million members, surely making it the world's largest army? Booth was also the maiden name of the wife of Tony Blair, Prime Minister of UK 1997-2007.

7. The first person that General Miscellany comes across is Second Lieutenant Mishmash, who just loves food and drink. He asks: "Which popular salad is named after an Italian American restaurateur and not after a Roman politician?".

From Quiz General Miscellany at Your Service

Answer: Caesar salad

The base of a Caesar salad is romaine lettuce and croutons, dressed with Parmesan cheese and a sauce containing raw egg, lemon juice, olive oil and Worcestershire sauce. Several variations on the original recipe are commonly found both in restaurants and in supermarkets, which often involve topping the salad with a source of protein such as chicken or seafood to make it a more complete meal. Caesar dressing is often sold pre-made in bottles for ease of consumption at home. Caesar Cardini was born in 1896 and travelled to North America at the age of just 17, arriving in New York via Ellis Island in 1913. He owned restaurants both in the United States and in Mexico, where he was able to avoid Prohibition.

8. There's a new kid in town! A member of the Raccoon Family has been identified through DNA testing. Name the new 2014 species.

From Quiz They Caught My Attention

Answer: Olinguito

In South America, a cute little mammal named olinguito (pronounced oh-ling-GHEE-toe) has been determined as a new mammal for the history books. They have reddish fur, a precious petite face, and claws to scratch the heck out of a predator, although they're also used to steady the creature on tree branches. Zookeepers have been stumped for years as to why this little creature wouldn't mate with olingos, a similar mammal in looks, slightly larger in size with dull gray fur. DNA testing proved olinguitos have their own DNA profile and thus, their own species. Olinguitos are 12 - 14 inches long, two pounds in weight, eat fruits and insects and will mate with their own kind. They are so cute you want to play and snuggle with them; however, I'm keeping my distance due to the claws.

9. Naram, Nom Chok in Thailand, Rani in Sri Lanka and Renee in the USA are popular artists who regularly sell their abstract paintings world wide. What is unusual about these artists?

From Quiz The Misplaced General Knowledge Quiz Vol.2

Answer: They are elephants

Komar and Melamid, two Russian born American artists, first began teaching elephants to paint in 1995. When they heard that Asian elephants were nearing 'endangered' status (down from 11,000 to 3,000 in only a few years), they decided to expand their work to Asian countries. Now, elephants paint to raise funds for their own conservation and have raised thousands of dollars. Question submitted by Waitakere.

10. Obaysch was a large Egyptian mammal traded to the London Zoo in 1850 in exchange for some greyhounds and deer-hounds. What kind of animal was he?

From Quiz 10 Things I Never Learned in School

Answer: Hippopotamus

Obaysch was captured on an island in the Nile and traded to England in 1850. He was the first hippopotamus seen in that country since prehistoric times. After the swap was made by British Consul general Sir Charles Murray (afterwards nicknamed "Hippopotamus Murray"), Obaysch sailed off to England accompanied by a herd of cows to provide him with milk, and remained in that country until his death 28 years later. He proved to be a sensation in London, and attracted an astonishing 10,000 visitors a day. Such was his fame that a dance, the "Hippopotamus Polka", was even created in his honour. After Obaysch made a break for freedom a few years later, it is believed that the zoo used a keeper as bait to lure him back to his enclosure. He was returned safely, but it is not known whether the keeper fared likewise. This eventuated in the Egyptian government sending a female hippo to Britain in an attempt to calm the frisky Obaysch down, but it took him sixteen years to get motivated as far as hippo romance went. Of the three calves he and his blushing bride Adhela eventually produced, only a female, given the peculiar name of Guy Fawkes, survived.

11. Guildo Horn and his backing group "Die Orthopadishcen Strumpfe" entered a song in the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest. What is the comical translation of "Die Orthopadishcen Strumpfe"?

From Quiz Potpourri Number Five

Answer: Orthopaedic stockings

Now there's a name to keep you hopping and bopping. Not that orthoepaedic stockings themselves are amusing. They're usually worn as bracing after surgery, or as supports for weakened joints. Guildo Horn though was never one to be serious. Born in 1963, he is notable for his crazy lyrics and over the top antics on stage. The public love him for it. The song he and his backing group entered in the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest was "Guildo hat euch lieb!" (Guildo loves you all), and during its performance, Guildo climbed onto the gantries of the stage - cheerfully ringing cowbells. One of its brief lines of lyrics was "Yoo hoo hoo - I love you". The song came seventh out of twenty-five entries that year. Considering the artistic touch of those clanging cowbells, he definitely should have won.

12. Literature: In which book would you find the characters Ralph, Piggy and Jack?

From Quiz The Second Half: L-W

Answer: Lord of the Flies

"Lord of the Flies" was a powerful 1954 novel written by William Golding. The book told the story of several British boys stranded on an uninhibited island, pitting civilization against savagery. Jack, Ralph, Piggy, Roger, Simon, Sam and Eric find they must learn how to govern themselves - a difficult lesson to learn. "The Lord of the Rings" by Tolkien became a bad 'hobbit' for many. "Lord Jim" was by Joseph Conrad who also wrote "The Heart of Darkness". "The Lords of Discipline" was authored by Pat Conroy.

13. Who is the only queen of the much married Henry VIII to be buried in Westminster Abbey?

From Quiz All Bits and Pieces No 2

Answer: Anne of Cleves

Anne of Cleves (1515-1557) was the fourth wife of Henry VIII (1491-1547) in a mismatched marriage that saw Henry head for the hills as soon as he possibly could. To wriggle out of his fourth foray into matrimony, he claimed the following: (a) Anne had been contracted to marry Francis of Lorraine. Indeed she had, but both were only children at the time, and the betrothal was subsequently cancelled. (b) Anne was ugly and unattractive. She wasn't - contemporary accounts describe her as having a lovely face, long blonde hair, and of a gentle and docile nature. (c) Anne smelled. A low blow. How could that be proved without people sniffing the poor young queen? Besides, Henry, with all his festering sores, probably ponged to high heavens himself. (d) He was certain Anne was not a virgin. As the marriage had never been consummated, how could the wily old lecher claim that? The plain truth of the matter was that he just didn't like Anne. She wasn't sophisticated, wasn't witty, had had no formal education, and only liked needlework and playing cards. Henry slept in the same bed as Anne for the six months the marriage lasted, but he wanted out - and of course he had his way once again. No doubt he already had his eye on the young, nubile and very lovely Katherine Howard at that time as well. He married her that same year. Anne described her marriage with Henry to one Lady Rutland as ""When he comes to bed he kisseth me, and he taketh me by the hand, and biddeth me 'Good night, sweetheart'; and in the morning kisseth me and biddeth 'Farewell, darling.'" Lady Rutland is said to have responded with "Madam, there must be more than this, or it will be long ere we have a duke of York...". After her marriage was annulled, Anne lived, for the times, a long and comfortable life, paid off by Henry, on good terms with him, and quite content with her lot in life. She outlived the king and all his other wives by some years, and, in a kind of regal poetic justice, was the only one of that old rascal's many wives to be buried in Westminster Abbey.

14. What is a "Sniglet"?

From Quiz Just a Bunch of Questions

Answer: A made-up word for something that has no word for it

The word "sniglet", was first used by comedian Rich Hall and used in his comedy routines and books. For instance, "Motspur" is the wheel on a shopping cart that always wobbles. "Carunk" is the chunk of ice and snow that builds up on the wheel well of a vehicle in winter. Most sniglets are meant to be humorous. The word sniglet itself is a sniglet.

15. Serge Abrahamovitch Voronoff was a Russian born French surgeon famous - or infamous - for which attempt to reverse the ageing process?

From Quiz Bit of This and That 7

Answer: Grafting monkey testicle tissue onto human male testicles

This took place while Voronoff (1866-1951) was working in France during the early 1900s. He worked in Egypt prior to this, where he studied the effects of castration on eunuchs there. Formulating his theory on reversing the ageing process, he initially tried injecting himself with the ground up testicles of dogs and guinea pigs to test same. When this had no effect, he came to the conclusion that grafting living tissue would be more effective. He initially experimented on grafting the testicles of younger animals onto older animals with a degree of success, and, upon announcing his findings to the world, he and his technique became an overnight sensation. Voronoff's first human customers in search of their lost youth were millionaires. They were the only ones who could afford it. He grafted testicle tissue from executed criminals into their scrotums. When he ran out of executed criminals, he switched to using monkey testicles instead, setting up his own monkey farm in Italy as a source of ready supply. He insisted his method could not only restore lost youth, it could also reverse senility, and, what's more, cure schizophrenia as well. Seven hundred of the top leading medical men in the world, impressed with his results, endorsed his work enthusiastically, and Voronoff was swamped with eager clients. His customers included not only many of the world's leading men, but also members of several football teams as well. And then it was found that his results were not what he claimed, and that any success, if any, was merely the result of the placebo effect. Voronoff then became an object of ridicule overnight instead, and all his medical supporters almost broke speed records in their haste to distance themselves from him. Voronoff didn't care. He was by then enormously wealthy and could afford all the bananas he wanted. You may be interested to learn, though, that in the late 1990s, scientists began tentatively investigating Voronoff's methods once again. Anthropologists, one imagines, were probably very interested as well. So you never know, gentlemen. One day you could all be swinging through the trees once again.

16. The river Carron in Scotland is only 23 miles long. Yet it has seen towns, warships, and an island named after it as well as what other rather peculiar item?

From Quiz Bit of This and That 6

Answer: A line of bathtubs

The river Carron is a very short river in a beautiful area of central Scotland. Such is its reputation for loveliness that it has found itself in more recent times with several large objects named after it - and a line of bathtubs. For some reason, I find this rather comical. The river itself was once much wider than it is today. A dam constructed on it in the 1930s saw an end to that. Before it was built, however, the river needed a two span bridge to enable people to cross from side to side. Today, with its waters absorbed into the dam, this large bridge on the much narrower river looks somewhat incongruous, a little like a sombrero on a mouse.

17. American R & B band, Ray Parker Jr. and Raydio, released a song in 1978 with the title of a nursery rhyme. What was this disco hit called?

From Quiz Random Jottings, Part IX

Answer: Jack and Jill

'Jack and Jill' was a Top 10 on many charts, and a favourite in the discos that I used to frequent, way back when. Ray Parker later split from the band, and in 1984 had a huge hit with the theme from 'Ghostbusters'.

18. Wallace Willis, the writer of 'Steal Away to Jesus' and 'Swing Low Sweet Chariot' was a slave who walked the 'Trail of Tears' with his owner from which Native American nation?

From Quiz Mixture of General Questions

Answer: Choctaw

Born in Mississippi around 1820, Willis took his surname from his owner, Britt Willis, a farmer who was part Choctaw and part Irish. When the Choctaw were relocated to Oklahoma as part of the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek in 1830, he was one of 300 of Britt Willis's slaves who walked to Oklahoma. His songs, written some time before 1860, became associated with the Underground Railroad. Some believe there were coded messages in them. Slavery ended in the Choctaw Nation in 1866. Wallace Willis became a Choctaw freedman. He died c1880.

19. Hyderabad was a large princely state in the heart of the Indian sub-continent. It ceased to exist in 1948 when India became independent of British rule. What title did the rulers of Hyderabad have?

From Quiz Random Jottings, Part VIII

Answer: Nizam

Nizams ruled the powerful region of Hyderabad from 1671 until 1948, when India was created from the union of the many states and cities that existed during British rule. A negus is Ethiopian and a shogun is a Japanese military general. Caliphs rule in Middle East Muslim countries.

20. Turtle organs are being studied by scientists for which purpose?

From Quiz Bit of This and That 3

Answer: To isolate a longevity gene

After years of research, scientists have come to the realisation that the internal organs of turtles do not become less efficient as the creatures age. Nor do they gradually deteriorate as in the case of the vast majority of other species of life on the planet, including man. In fact, the internal organs of a very old turtles can hardly be told apart from those of much younger turtles. In N. Angier's 2012 work, "All But Ageless, Turtles Face Their Biggest Threat: Humans", Angier informs us that geneticists are now intensely studying these fascinating creatures in an attempt to isolate the longevity gene responsible for this, in the hope that it can be eventually utilised to keep the internal organs of ageing humans in a much healthier condition. So if one day your elderly grandmother begins to develop flippers, you'll know that science has once again triumphed over nature.

21. Where might you find a bear market, a stag market and a bull market all in the same place but not at the same time?

From Quiz Ten Interesting Snippets

Answer: At the stock exchange

A 'bull market' is when share prices rapidly increase in value for several days. A 'bear market' is when share prices drop sharply in value for several days. A 'stag' is somebody who isn't really bothered whether the market is going up or down as a whole. They tend to look at individual company shares that they believe will increase in value in the short term and then buy and quickly sell them at a profit (hopefully).

22. Nicolaus started with the message that kicked off this way of communication, sent by British engineer Neil Papworth in 1992. Which festive message did Papworth send to Richard Jarvis to match the theme of the snowy party the latter was in?

From Quiz Important Texts of History

Answer: Merry Christmas

Neil Papworth, a British software architect, studied at the University of West London. Papworth, who worked for Sema Group, helped develop the short message system, in an effort to provide an alternative service for Vodafone customers. One of the heads of Vodafone, Richard Jarvis, received the first text message ever through an Orbitel handset, and it was sent by Papworth from a computer. "Merry Christmas" was the first message sent, in December of 1992.

23. Who was the only English king to be crowned on the field of battle?

From Quiz A Bit of This and That 2

Answer: Henry VII

Talk about a "What's yer hurry? Here's your hat!" mentality. The Lancastrian Henry VII defeated the Yorkist Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485; however, the decision to crown Henry King of England then and there was an astute political move. Henry's claim to the throne of England was tenuous to say the least. Being crowned however, fait accompli, would make that crown just that harder to dislodge. He then married Elizabeth of York, the daughter of Edward IV, who was Richard's brother and king before him. Because she was Edward's oldest daughter, and had no surviving brothers, Elizabeth had a far stronger claim to the throne of England than Henry did. Her worthy spouse followed this matrimonial coup up with one of the dirtiest mud-slinging campaigns about the dead Richard as possible, in order to strengthen his "right" as ruler even further in the eyes of the people of England.

24. In which century was Italian poet Dante's epic "Divina Commedia" (the "Divine Comedy") written?

From Quiz Arts & Books Mixed Bag 15

Answer: 14th

He was born Durante degli Alighieri in Florence in 1265, although he is generally known simply called "Dante". He began working on the epic poem now widely considered the preeminent work of Italian literature sometime around 1308 and finished it only shortly before his death in 1321.

25. What is true of eucalyptus trees?

From Quiz Anything Goes Number Three

Answer: Their roots draw up gold from under the ground

The vast majority of the world's eucalyptus trees grow in Australia, some 700 of them in fact. Only about fifteen others grow elsewhere naturally on the globe. Researchers, however, have been turning more and more to Australians' native plant (which we call the gum tree) and utilising it elsewhere in several countries. Eucalyptus trees are exceptionally fast growing; they produce a natural substance which can be used as an insecticide and in cleaning products; and they're excellent when planted in swamp areas to help drain same and rid those areas of mosquitoes. They produce dainty, shy little flowers which are lovely in bloom, and they provide a quick and accessible source of firewood. The eucalyptus also provides a source of readily available food for several native animals, birds and insects, but be wary of standing under them, particularly in summer, as their branches, known as widow makers, can snap off suddenly and fall. Very interestingly too, their roots draw up minute particles of gold from below the surface of the ground. These appear on the tree's leaves and indicate deposits of this and other valuable metals underneath the earth which would go otherwise undetected.

26. A peanut can have a nice crunchy consistency and the typical meaty taste of most nuts, and it even has "nut" as a part of its name--but it is not a nut. What is a peanut ... really?

From Quiz What Did You Call That?

Answer: A legume

Yes, the peanut is in the same family, botanically speaking, as the legumes. That group also contains the beans and peas. This may be the origin of the pea-nut name. It is also called the ground nut; possibly because as its pod ripens the pod grows more and more under ground. It is also called the goober or goober pea. This is most likely an Americanized version of the word used by (then) slaves from the central African area who had called the plant/eatable pod "nguba" in their homeland.

27. What classic TV show featured the phrase, "Who was that masked man, anyway?"

From Quiz Click Here! Click Here!

Answer: The Lone Ranger

An icon of American storytelling, the Lone Ranger is a masked former Texas Ranger who patrolled the Old West to fight crime with his Native American sidekick Tonto. In addition to radio and film serials, "The Lone Ranger" also appeared on the ABC television network in the US from 1949-1957. A recurring plot device would have the heroes come to the aid of the innocent to thwart a criminal, rescue a captive, or solve a crime. As the Lone Ranger and Tonto rode off into the sunset, one of the rescued townspeople would ask, "Who was that masked man, anyway? I wanted to thank him."

28. The release of the song "Love A Woman" by Mary J. Blige and Beyonce Knowles, informing men that women need more than just sex, was delayed for which reason?

From Quiz Time For A Chuckle

Answer: Beyonce was pregnant

The timing was rather unfortunate, all things considered. The song's lyrics centre around the theme of how a man should make a woman fell cherished and so on, and that a relationship is not just about sex and the physical side of things. To have a decidedly pregnant Beyonce present in any publicity when it was due to be released in late 2011 would have been decidedly comical. Her baby was born in January, 2012, two months later. Perhaps they should have renamed the song, "On the Other Hand".

29. "Ici, ici!" cries Suzette. Hens talk? Turns out they do. When you go over to speak to her, you're asked, "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir?" What is she asking you to do?

From Quiz Three French Hens

Answer: Sleep with her tonight

Without delving into the obvious absurdity of the request, it's clear that Suzette is a depraved chicken. Probably comes from being cooped up with other chickens all the time. The french phrase "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir?" literally translates to "will you sleep with me, tonight?" Fortunately you don't need to understand much of French to get the basis of the request. The line has been used countless times in film and music, even being perhaps the most catchy, famous lyric from "Lady Marmalade", the highest-charting song from Baz Luhrmann's 2001 musical "Moulin Rouge!" It was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, losing to "A Beautiful Mind".

30. This cinema ticket stub reminds me that I went to see the film "Dredd: 3D" a couple of months ago, and a very good time I had too. But where did the character Judge Dredd first appear?

From Quiz Tonight I'm Cleaning Out My Wallet

Answer: British SF comic "2000AD"

Most reviews agreed that "Dredd: 3D" was much more faithful to the character of of the Dredd of "2000AD", where he first appeared in 1977 and rapidly became the comic's best known creation. The Stallone film was heavily altered to suit its star; Dredd almost NEVER, for example, removes his face-obscuring helmet, whereas Stallone hardly ever wore his in the film. And he had a love interest...Oh dear. Dredd should also never be confused with another iconic figure of my childhood: Judge DREAD, the stage name of the late UK reggae singer Alexander Minto Hughes. Dread/Hughes had a string of hits in the 1970s with some extremely rude reinterpretations of popular nursery rhymes, in spite of the fact that virtually all of them were banned from radio airplay. I very much doubt that Dredd and his fellow Judges would have permitted them in Mega City One either...
