Single Word Theme Trivia Questions

1. Which historic Frenchman was known as Monseigneur le Grand Dauphin?

From Quiz
"Grand" Central (Track 5)

Answer: Louis de France

Although he was prepped and groomed to take over one day, Louis de France, known as "Le Grand Dauphin" or "Monseigneur", died before his father, King Louis XIV, and so Louis de France never inherited the throne. He was the eldest son of Louis XIV, born in 1661, and dying in 1711. He did in his lifetime hold political office and various military posts as well.

2. Alfred the Great was the ruler of Wessex, England from 871 to 899. One of his major achievements was the codification of Danelaw after a victory over the Viking king Guthrum in a battle in 878. Which battle was this?

From Quiz Great Goodness!

Answer: Battle of Edington

The Battle of Edington was fought between Alfred the Great and the Great Heathen Army led by the Danish Viking king Guthrum. The victory of Alfred led to the Treaty of Wedmore. A clear distinction was established between Danelaw, ruled by the Danes, and the territory controlled by the Anglo-Saxons. Danelaw mainly consisted of the region of East Anglia. Guthrum converted to Christianity and was christened Aethelstan, as the adopted son of Alfred.

3. Building on The Great Wall of China was started in in 221 BCE, by order of the Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi. What was the Emperor's purpose?

From Quiz Great Balls of Fire!

Answer: To keep invaders out

It is a myth that the Great Wall is the only man-made object visible from the moon. In fact, no man-made objects are visible from the moon. Even from a low orbit in space, the Great Wall is not visible to the naked eye.

4. For what song did the pop band fun. win the 2013 Grammy Award for "Song of the Year"?

From Quiz "Fun" Trivia

Answer: We Are Young

They became the first rock band to have a song hit Number One on the Hot 100 singles chart with its first entry since Nickelback did it with "How You Remind Me" in 2001.

5. Who sang "Rocky Mountain High"?

From Quiz It's High Time

Answer: John Denver

In 1973, John Denver's "Rocky Mountain High" peaked at Number One on the Billboard Top pop 40 chart. Denver was flying high piloting a plane when he lost his life in a crash in 1997.

6. A very famous case of going in the wrong direction occurred when this pilot flew across the Atlantic from Brooklyn to Ireland when he was supposed to fly to Long Beach, California. He was nicknamed "Wrong Way" because of this. Who was he?

From Quiz Going in the Wrong Direction

Answer: Douglas "Wrong Way" Corrigan

Douglas Corrigan earned this dubious nickname in 1938 when he flew from Long Beach, California, to Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, New York. He filed a flight plan to fly back to Long Beach, but flew to Ireland instead. He claimed it was due to a "navigation error" caused by clouds and a faulty compass. But many believe the flight was intentional as he had previously been denied permission to fly across the Atlantic to Ireland. "Wrong Way" Feldman was a character in some "Gilligans Island" episodes. He was played by the highly underrated character actor Victor Buono. Despite Ginger's seductive powers of persuasion he still refused to help the castaways get off the island. Wiley Post was the pilot of the plane that crashed and killed Will Rogers and him. As for Charles Hughes...he's just a fictional mashup of Charles Lindbergh and Howard Hughes, two storied aviators themselves!

7. What bodily function is associated with the phrase "depth perception"?

From Quiz Out of Your Depth

Answer: vision

The loss of an eye has a definite adverse effect on depth perception because two eyes are essential to perceiving an object or scene in three dimensions as well as estimating the distance of an object. When I played amateur baseball, the fact that I had vision in only one eye frequently caused me to swing late at pitches until I trained myself to adjust.

8. Which quite interesting TV show, hosted by Stephen Fry, has a segment called "General Ignorance"?

From Quiz "General" Knowledge

Answer: Q.I.

Q.I. (Quite Interesting) is a British TV quiz show. "General Ignorance" is the final round in the show. The title "General Ignorance" addresses misconceptions, mistakes and misunderstandings in 'common knowledge'. It is therefore known not as 'General Knowledge', but as 'General Ignorance'. The questions are deliberately misleading, and the obvious answers are incorrect. Incorrect answers are penalised and it is possible for panelists to win with a negative score. This segment has spawned "The Book of General Ignorance", written by series-creator John Lloyd and head-researcher John Mitchinson.

9. What is the trophy given to the winner of the Minnesota-Michigan football game, a prestigious pacing race for three-year-old horses, and a 1939 recording by Glenn Miller?

From Quiz A Lot About A Little

Answer: Little Brown Jug

The Old Oaken Bucket, among other things, is the trophy presented to the winner of the Indiana-Purdue football game. The Ryder Cup is the trophy awarded to the biennial winner of the male team professional golf tournament between the USA and Europe. The Dirty Little Sneaker is, I think, not a trophy.

10. Both King Henry VIII and Al Capone suffered from which devastating disease?

From Quiz A General Quiz About "General"

Answer: General paresis

General paresis, also known as general paralysis, is the final stage of syphilis. An infection of the brain or spinal column, it results in dementia, progressive muscular weakness, and paralysis. None of the other ailments use the term "General".

11. Which town in New Mexico, USA is famous as the suspected crash site of a UFO in 1947?

From Quiz All's Well That Ends (or Begins with) Well

Answer: Roswell

While it might otherwise be known as a major producer of mozzarella cheese, or as the home of the New Mexico Military Institute, or as the home of the International Law Enforcement Academy, Roswell is best known for its connection to UFOs. The local Roswell professional baseball team is known as the Invaders. Folk singer John Denver was born in Roswell, which may explain a lot.

12. The big political hot potato in the UK in early 2013 came when meat from which animal was discovered in many supermarkets' frozen beefburgers?

From Quiz Hot Dog

Answer: Horse

Some supermarkets found that Irish supplied beefburgers contained large amounts of horsemeat. The British government ordered a full investigation and results indicate that the problem extends to meat imported from countries such as France, Ireland and Romania. Anyone getting the trots should see their doctor.

13. The late actress Elizabeth Taylor was married eight times. Her first husband was Conrad Hilton, Jr., but who was second?

From Quiz Who's on Second?

Answer: Michael Wilding

Elizabeth's second husband was Michael Wilding. They were married from February 21, 1952 - January 26, 1957. She followed this up with a hitch to director Michael Todd who was killed in an airplane crash. Eddie Fisher, a popular singer and entertainer was next. She married fellow actor Richard Burton twice making him husband 5 and 6. John Warner followed in 1976 and her last hubby was Larry Fortensky.

14. Cary Grant plans to meet Deborah Kerr at the Empire State Building in which movie?

From Quiz 'Fair' Crack of the Whip!

Answer: An Affair To Remember

This film was referenced several times in the movie 'Sleepless in Seattle'. 'An Affair To Remember' was a remake of an earlier film called 'Love Affair'.

15. If something from "The East" can be referred to as "Oriental", how can one similarly refer to something from "The West"?

From Quiz East Is East

Answer: Occidental

The word occidental originally comes from the Latin "occidentem", meaning western sky. the perception of what constitutes "The Orient" has changed over time, and also changes based on where the person using the term comes from. From personal experience I come from New Zealand and when we use the term "Asian" we are making a collective reference to people from countries such as China, Japan and Korea. When I first moved to the UK I had to adjust to the fact that the term "Asian" collectively refers to people from Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

16. To create this hair style, you take three strands of hair, then cross the strands over each other, while grabbing more hair from the sides as you go. When you are finished, what hair style do you have?

From Quiz FRENCH Is the First Word

Answer: french braid & braid & french plait & plait & French Pleat & pleat

There is also a reverse /french braid, where you put the strands behind each other (underhand technique) instead of over each other (overhand technique). With this reverse style, the braid actually "pops" out.

17. This famous band thought they could do better than Pete Best. Who replaced him?

From Quiz Vera's "Best" Quiz

Answer: Ringo Starr

Pete Best was the Beatles' drummer, replaced by Ringo Starr. Keith Moon was the irreplaceable drummer for The Who. Steven Stills almost became a Monkee and Sammy Hagar replaced David Lee Roth in Van Halen.

18. Which famous bell is housed in the Elizabeth Tower in London, England?

From Quiz You're in Big Trouble

Answer: Big Ben

Big Ben also refers to the clock in the same tower. The bell weighs 3.5 tons.

19. Which group sang a song that ended "She's in love with me and I feel fine"?

From Quiz Looks Fine To Me

Answer: The Beatles

"I Feel Fine" was written by John Lennon and was released by the Beatles in 1964. It was the 'A' side of their eighth single. It reached the top of the UK charts in December and stayed there for five weeks.

20. Which word completes the title of the James Hadley Chase thriller "Come Easy - Easy"?

From Quiz Today's Word is "Easy"

Answer: Go

James Hadley Chase, birth name Rene Brabazon Raymond, was born in London on December 24th 1906 and died on February 6th, 1985. He was a prolific author of mystery thrillers, publishing his first, "No Orchids For Miss Blandish" in 1939 and his last, "Hit Them Where It Hurts" in 1984. "Come Easy - Go Easy" was published in 1960. Many of his stories were set in the USA, though he only briefly lived there.

22. What is the name of the low-cost airline set up by Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou?

From Quiz Easy Quiz

Answer: easyJet

Established in 1995, EasyJet serves 103 destinations in 27 countries and has made Sir Stelios an estimated, mind-boggling £1.29 billion.

23. Which piece of pastry must be the easiest?

From Quiz It's All About Ease!

Answer: cake

This question was a piece of cake! In the antebellum 19th century there was a Southern black custom of mocking the stiff ballroom dances of the whites by exaggerating all movements into the grotesque. Probably not knowing this, whites actually liked these dances and held "dance" contests for Blacks (mostly slaves of course) where the prize was traditionally: a cake! Cakewalk contests were hugely popular during the later 19th century. The moves of a cakewalk are not particularly easy, but it was something done on weekends, in a leisurely way, and therefore received the meaning "being easy".

24. One of my favourite movies is the black-and-white classic, "Double Indemnity". The screen-play was written by Raymond Chandler. Who wrote the original story it was based on?

From Quiz Mixed Doubles

Answer: James M. Cain

"Double Indemnity" is the story of an insurance salesman who becomes involved with a married woman. She not only convinces him to help her take out a life insurance policy with a double indemnity clause, but also to help murder her husband in a staged accident in order to collect the money. The story was loosely based on a real case, the Snyder/Gray case of 1927, in which Ruth Snyder and Judd Gray murdered Albert Snyder. Cain used elements of the Snyder/Gray case in two novels - "Double Indemnity" and "The Postman Always Rings Twice".

25. What Polish scientist coined the word 'vitamin'?

From Quiz 'Fun' Quiz

Answer: Casimir Funk

He combined the Latin word "vita" for life and the chemical word "amin". He realised the importance of vitamins in maintaining good health.

26. The bell housed in the Clock Tower of London's Houses of Parliament is called Big _____?

From Quiz It's Big

27. At just 5'2" (1.57m) tall Napoleon Bonaparte was nicknamed the Little _____ ?

From Quiz It's Little!

Answer: Corporal

In 1796, following the Battle of Lodi, Napoleon I was given this nickname. He had many nicknames during the course of his life, one of which was 'Corporal Violet' given to him following his exile to Elba in 1814, having said that he would "return with the violets."

28. Who was the first appointed Supreme Court Justice Of the U.S., with BALD in his name?

From Quiz 'Bald'ness, Not The Quiz You Think It Is

Answer: Henry Baldwin

Andrew Jackson appointed him, and he served from 1830 to 1844. The first Supreme Court Justice was John Jay, appointed by Washington.

29. The longest fingernails in the world are measured to be 43-55 inches long (some back scratchers!). What is that simile about something that you hit with a hammer? Hard as ________
