The Best General Knowledge Trivia Questions

1. Oy vey. It ain't fine dining, but Hungarians got through World War 2 in part with what ration?

From Quiz
Wikipedia: Unusual Articles

Answer: Hitler bacon

"Hitler bacon" is a type of fruit jam that Hungarian soldiers and civilians used to survive the war. It is a tough type of jam that was made like bricks and could be sliced and cooked like most foods. The Hungarians picked it as one of the few German foods they'd tolerate. The name apparently comes from the fact that it paralleled regular bacon, and thus was referred to as the emperor's bacon. The 'emperor,' of course, was Hitler. Note: Urinal hot drink is Romanian, Fresh cemen dip is Turkish, and Molotov cocktails are not edible.

2. Only one film in President Ronald Reagan's filmography was nominated for 'Best Picture'. Which was it?

From Quiz Beating Around 'Em

Answer: Kings Row

"Kings Row", released in 1942, also starred Ann Sheridan and Robert Cummings and was directed by three-time 'Best Director' nominee Sam Wood. "Kings Row" was considered one of Reagan's best supporting roles; he had no legs for a portion of the movie. When "Kings Row" made it to the 15th Academy Awards in 1943, it took three nominations but lost them all. "Mrs. Miniver" took 'Best Picture'. Reagan would continue in cinema for another twenty years before taking the U.S. presidency for most of the 1980s.

5. Who was proclaimed Queen of England and Ireland in 1553, deposed just nine days later and executed six months after being deposed?

From Quiz A Mixed Bunch

Answer: Lady Jane Grey

Rather than name his half sisters, Mary and Elizabeth, as successors to the Crown, Edward VI nominated his cousin Jane in his will as she was Protestant and his eldest half sister, Mary, was Roman Catholic. Lady Jane was therefore proclaimed Queen on 10 July 1553, but after Mary entered London with her supporters, the Privy Council changed sides and Lady Jane was deposed before she was even crowned allowing Mary to become Mary I and reign for five years. Lady Jane was kept in the Tower of London and executed in February 1554 aged 17.

8. Which date in the Christmas Calendar is celebrated as El Dia de los Reyes (Three Kings Day) in Spanish and Latin American countries?

From Quiz (Almost) Everything - the No Worries! Way

Answer: 6th January

Answer 6th January, the Feast of the Epiphany in the Christian calendar. It is the day that Spanish and Latin American children get their presents from the three Wise Men.

9. Which group of American medical professionals once incorporated the Venus de Milo in their official seal?

From Quiz Potpourri Number Four

Answer: American Society of Plastics Surgeons

Considered one of the most famous sculptures of Ancient Greece, the Venus de Milo is thought to represent the goddess Aphrodite. Created sometime between 130-100 BC, this statue, which stands at 6 foot 8 inches, was lost for centuries until unearthed on the island of Milos in 1820. One wonders though that if, instead of a woman, a young male was the model for this work. Her face and body rather suggest that gender, particularly so the trunk. It doesn't curve in far enough at the waist and its almost as if she has ripples of muscles on her upper abdomen. The face, too, appears to be rather masculine in appearance. Damaged when she was found, with parts of both arms missing and a broken nose, that nose was the inspiration behind her choice for the official seal once used by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Particularly so for a "Before and After" effect.

10. An extension built onto England's gracious old Poole Methodist Church in High Street, Dorset, took out which dubious architectural distinction in 2016?

From Quiz Potpourri

Answer: The Carbuncle Cup award

The Poole Methodist Church was built in the late 1800s to replace an old chapel that had been constructed there one hundred years earlier. Made from Purbeck and Bath stone, it is of Gothic design, and features a soaring and impressive tower on its north-west side. The extension to this lovely building - which replaced a lovely old Georgian chapel - looks like a flat topped box, has no visual appeal at all, no recognisable architectural features, and is completely out of character with the rest of the church's design. It's quite horrible in fact, and it is not at all surprising that it took out the 2016 Carbuncle Cup, an architectural "award" handed out annually for "ugliest building in the United Kingdom completed in the last 12 months".

11. In the film "Knute Rockne All American," Pat O'Brien played Rockne and Ronald Reagan played George "Gipper" Gipp. Who was Notre Dame's opponent when Rockne inspired his team with the story about "win one for the Gipper"?

[At the time of his death, he had a contract to play baseball with the Chicago Cubs.] He was Notre Dame's first Walter Camp All-American, and was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame. He died of pneumonia and a throat infection at age 25.

12. Why do identical twins have different fingerprints?

From Quiz Why?

Answer: Not every cell is identical in identical twins

Identical twins share the same DNA, but not every cell is identical. Physical appearance is not rigidly determined by genes. Fingerprints are formed semi-randomly as the fetus develops and are affected by such things as fluctuations of hormone levels. Likewise, freckles and moles on the skin are caused by random mutations and will vary between identical twins.

21. The United States became a sovereign country after it gained independence from Great Britain. What document did the founders create as the United States' first agreement after it became independent, right after the Revolutionary War?

From Quiz General Trivia

Answer: Articles of Confederation

After America gained independence from Great Britain, the states formed a government under the Articles of Confederation. The Articles gave very little power to the federal government. The thirteen states were acting as independent countries. This created many problems which caused a need for a new form of government. Leaders from most of the states met to devise a new plan of government which came to be known as the Constitution. The meeting became known as the Second Constitutional Convention. All federal and state laws could not go against anything stated in the Constitution which made it the "supreme law of the land".

Traditionally, the candy cane is a symbol of Christmas.

23. Who killed Cock Robin?

From Quiz Baloo's Very Silly Little Quiz

Answer: The Sparrow

The Sparrow killed Cock Robin, of course, with his bow and arrow in the nursery rhyme 'Who Killed Cock Robin'. It's interesting that all the birds 'fell a-sighing and a-sobbing' in the rhyme, but no one seems to have thought of arresting the Sparrow, or even finding out why he did it! The Penguin is an opponent of Batman, whose sidekick is Robin. The Sheriff of Nottingham was Robin Hood's opponent.
