97. July the 4th is a national holiday in the United States commemorating the writing of the Declaration of Independence. July 1 is a national holiday in Canada, but what does it celebrate?

From Quiz The Star Spangled World

Answer: Canada Day

Until 1982, Canada Day was actually called Dominion Day. It commemorates the formation of the Dominion of Canada on July 1, 1867. Following the 1982 partition of the Canadian constitution - which until that time had been embodied in the British North America Act (1867), an act of the British Parliament - the name of the holiday was officially changed to Canada Day. It is celebrated with parades, fireworks, display of the flag, and so on, in much the same way as July 4 in the U.S. (I actually like to get out to the Cottage). The possibility of union among the various provinces in British North America had been discussed for many years. In 1864 a meeting was held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, by representatives of Quebec, Ontario, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick, and after three years of negotiations federation was achieved. Subsequent to the passage of the British North America Act, other provinces joined the union.

98. According to the TV show title, how many rules were there "For Dating My Teenage Daughter"?

From Quiz Playing by the Rules

Answer: Eight & 8

"8 Simple Rules... for Dating My Teenage Daughter", later shortened to "8 Simple Rules", aired on ABC for three seasons spanning 2002-2005, and while it was a popular show early in its time, it came to a quick end following the passing of its lead actor, John Ritter, who died unexpectedly in 2003. A handful of actors filled in the void left by Ritter's death (including James Garner and David Spade) but the show was cancelled shortly after. The rules featured on the show were clearly outlined early on and involved items such as "Use your hands on my daughter and you'll lose them after" and "If your pants hang off your hips, I'll gladly secure them with my staple gun."

99. One of the most famous dreams in classic literature belongs to an allegorical poem by William Langland, in which a man falls asleep and dreams of finding the true Christian life. What is the name of the poem?

From Quiz Dreams are on Their Way

Answer: Piers Plowman

"Piers Plowman", "A Vision of Piers Plowman", or "Will's Vision of Piers Plowman" are all common titles for this work, which is subtitled "A Vision of a People's Christ". In the poem, a man named Will falls asleep and dreams of Piers Plowman, a Medieval image of Christ. There are many "steps" or parts to the poem, known as "Passus", during which Will witnesses different events. There exist three different versions of the manuscript, of varying lengths. William Langland wrote the poem between 1370-1386, and meant to show the proper Christian life in contrast to what he was seeing around him in Medieval society.

100. During the 18th century, which nocturnal profession was nicknamed "Resurrection Man" in Britain?

From Quiz The Dark for Dark Business

Answer: Grave robber

"Grave robber" was actually a profession in the 18th century! Men could be paid by doctors or medical students to provide them with corpses on which to perform autopsies and dissections. The term "Resurrection Man" refers to the unfortunate bodies' so-called "resurrection" from the grave.

101. "She'll be coming ______ the mountain when she comes,.." Which way?

From Quiz Which Way Did They Go?

Answer: Around

A very popular folk song, it was derived from a Negro Christian Spiritual sung to the same music, "When The Chariot Comes". The secular version became popular with railroad workers in the late 1900s

102. George Washington was elected first President of the United States of America in 1789, but who came second in this election?

From Quiz Can't Win 'em All

Answer: John Adams

Voting for the presidency was a little different back in 1789. Each voter cast two votes- for two different people. Washington was pretty much unbeatable after his efforts in the War of Independence, but the second biggest vote cast would determine his Vice President. This outcome was a little more unknown before the ballot. Contenders were John Adams, John Hancock, John Rutledge, James Madison and John Jay. Alexander Hamilton was one of Washington's biggest supporters.

103. "Perfect" is a popular choice for the title of a song, but can you tell me which of the four groups listed here released their "Perfect" song first?

From Quiz A Perfect Ten!

Answer: The Smashing Pumpkins

"Perfect" was released on September 7th of 1998 as the second single from The Smashing Pumpkins album "Adore" (their fourth studio album, released on June 2nd). It peaked at Number 54 on the US Billboard Hot 100, but fared better in their home country of Canada, reaching Number Two on the Canada/Rock Alternative chart. The other "Perfect" songs were released in 2003 (Simple Plan), 2009 (Depeche Mode), and 2015 (One Direction). None of them were covers of any of the others.

104. Starring Lee Van Cleef, what genre was the 1972 film "The Grand Duel"?

From Quiz "Grand" Central (Track 4)

Answer: spaghetti western

Van Cleef, an actor in many spaghetti westerns plays grizzled an ex-sheriff who helps a man, Philipp Wermeer, who has been framed for the murder of a powerful figure known as The Patriarch. When Wermeer escapes, The Patriarch's three sons want him dead so they place a large bounty is placed on Wermeer's head. Sheriff Clayton (Van Cleef) helps Wermeer from getting caught by the bounty hunters, and he heads back to Jefferson with Wermeer to confront the powerful Saxon brothers who placed the bounty, and together they reveal the truth to the brothers about who really killed their father. Directed by Giancarlo Santi and written by Ernesto Gastaldi, the movie was shot in Italy, at Rome's Ellios Studios.

105. The phrase "Who Dares Wins" is credited to Sir David Stirling, founder of which elite branch of the British army?

From Quiz Dare You Take A Quiz?

Answer: Special Air Service (SAS)

The SAS, despite being formed in 1941, did, until 1980, operate largely behind a cloak of secrecy due to the sensitive nature of many of their operations. This only changed when, in 1980, on live TV, the force stormed the Iranian embassy in London after a six day siege, successfully rescuing all but one of the 20 hostages being held, and killing five of the six hostage takers in a raid that lasted just 17 minutes. Paratroopers were first deployed in combat by Nazi forces in WWII during the invasions of Norway and Denmark in 1940, while the British Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR) wasn't formed until 2005, and the Home Guard was a civilian force which ceased operations at the end of WWII.

106. In men's golf, the Grand Slam is a term to denote winning the four major tournaments in a calendar year. Who was the first golfer to achieve this feat?

From Quiz The Grand Slam

Answer: Bobby Jones

In the modern era, the four major tournaments are the Masters Tournament, the PGA Championship, the US Open, which are all held in the United States, and the Open Championship, held in the United Kingdom. However, prior to the creation of the Masters in 1934, the majors were considered to be the two open tournaments, and their equivalent for non-professionals, the US Amateur and the Amateur Championship. In 1930, Bobby Jones, one of the most successful golfers of the day, who up to then had won nine majors (three US Opens, four US Amateurs and two Open Championships), became the first player to win all four in a single year - he won the Amateur Championship at St Andrews at the end of May; the Open Championship at Hoylake in the third week of June; the US Open at Interlachen in mid-July; and the US Amateur at Merion at the end of September, taking his tally of major victories to 13. The first player to hold all four of the modern major titles at the same time was Tiger Woods, although this was over two successive years, with his victories coming at the 2000 US Open, 2000 Open Championship, 2000 PGA and 2001 Masters.

107. In 2012, a major power blackout occurred, starting on the Bina-Gwalior line, followed by one near Agra. Affecting half of one of the world's most populous countries, which power outage was this?

From Quiz ...and Then the Lights Went Out

Answer: The 2012 North and Eastern India blackouts

The American 2003 Northeast power outage was huge. More than 55 million people were without power in Canada and the USA. However, within the first 20 years of the 21st century, this outage was outdone by 10 other major blackouts. The July 2012 India blackouts affected the north and much of eastern India, after circuit breakers tripped on the Bina-Gwalior line. This started a domino effect, with stations failing throughout the whole northern and eastern grid. This affected approximately 300 million people. The system was mostly restored within 15 hours, but then failed even more disastrously due to a relay problem near the Taj Mahal. This resulted in about 620 million people, nearly half of India's population, being without power. Regarding the lights going out: spare a thought for the 200 or so miners trapped underground for the duration. It must have been a harrowing experience.

108. A question about American collegiate sports - in January 2014, the NCAA 'Big 10' conference expanded to how many teams?

From Quiz Don't Pick the Obvious

Answer: 14

The Big Ten Conference consisted of ten Midwestern schools for years before 1990. The ten traditional members were Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio State, Indiana, Purdue, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Northwestern, and Michigan State (which replaced the University of Chicago). Since 1990, Penn State, Rutgers, Maryland, and Nebraska have joined.

109. Faith, played by Eliza Dushku, was a prominent character in which popular US show that originally aired between 1997 and 2003?

From Quiz A Lot of Faith

Answer: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Faith was introduced in the third season of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' that aired in 1998 and was, like the title character, a vampire slayer. Actress Eliza Dushku had previously appeared on screen as Arnold Schwarzenegger's daughter in the 1994 film 'True Lies'. Initially Faith attempted to befriend Buffy, but a series of mishaps and a growing bitterness caused her to switch sides and she soon became an enemy rather than an ally. The character also appeared in the spin-off show 'Angel' where she eventually became persuaded to work for good rather than evil. Her change of heart meant that when Faith reappeared in the final series of the original show, she was one of the characters who worked alongside Buffy in her final effort to save the Earth.

110. For which 1980 event did Rosie Ruiz "train" really hard and win, only to be stripped of her title, eight days later?

From Quiz Crossing The Line

Answer: Boston Marathon

Cuban, Ruiz crossed the finish line with a time of 2:31:56, at the time the fastest recorded time for the Boston marathon, but observers noticed her face was barely flushed and her hair was still immaculately styled. Ruiz's secret to a good marathon, it turned out, wasn't intense training or great stamina, but taking the train. She ran for the first few hundred yards, then slipped into the spectators and caught the subway before running back onto the course for the last few miles. She was stripped of her title and organisers solved the potential issue of more people trying this by installing cameras at secret points along the course to video every runner as they pass.

111. Which actor must have asked "Why did I want that?" when he turned down the role of Andy Dufresne in "The Shawshank Redemption"(1995) to concentrate on his epic, "Waterworld"(1995)?

From Quiz Why Did I Want That?

Answer: Kevin Costner

"The Shawshank Redemption", starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman, was shot on a $25 million budget and although not a box office hit initially, was re released on the back of its seven Oscar nominations enabling it to gross $58.3 million, as well as becoming one of the top rented VHS films of the year. "Waterworld", on the other hand, was at the time, the most expensive movie ever made at an estimated $235 million and grossed just $264 million worldwide. It was nominated for one Oscar, that of "Best Sound" and review site "Rotten Tomatoes", who give the movie a 42% rating, compared to "Shawshank's" 91%, describe it as "an ambitious misfire: an extravagant sci-fi flick with some decent moments and a lot of silly ones."

112. History: which English Plantagenet king was said to have exclaimed, regarding Thomas Becket, "Will no-one rid me of this turbulent priest?"

From Quiz Why is it Good to Ask Questions?

Answer: Henry II

Thomas Becket was the Archbishop of Canterbury, elected in 1162. His religious beliefs - such as the belief that clergy should be dealt with by the ecclesiastical hierarchy, and not by secular powers, and excommunicating various officials - caused conflict with the king. Becket was exiled to France, but returned to England in 1170, and Henry II supposedly uttered the above quote. Four knights took the comment literally, confronted Becket at Canterbury Cathedral, and stabbed him to death. Three years later, Becket was canonised as a saint; his feast day is 29th December.

113. South America is said to have broken away from which other continent?

From Quiz In the Breakaway

Answer: Africa

Alfred Wegener first coined the term continental drift in the early 1900s to describe the movement of whole continents which used to be connected in one large continent called Pangaea. One of the most popular indications of this is to look at a map of the Atlantic and notice how the shapes of Africa and South America seem to fit together. Research has shown that the topographical patterns of the two continents coincide.

114. At one time, Richard Burton purchased the world's most expensive diamond for Elizabeth Taylor. Which diamond was it?

From Quiz Gestures of Love

Answer: Krupp Diamond

Nothing says love quite like a sparkly diamond, but Richard Burton, who was Elizabeth Taylor's fifth husband, went all out to find the biggest of the bunch. It ended up being the 33 carat Krupp Diamond which, after her death in 2011, was sold for nearly nine million dollars. Taylor's propensity for diamonds was well-known. She and Burton also bought the South African Taylor-Burton Diamond which, at 68 carats, was one of the largest in their collection. She wore it to the Oscars in 1970.

115. Melania Trump, First Lady to the 45th President of the USA, was purported to have copied sections of her 2017 speech at the Republican national convention from a speech giving by which previous First Lady?

From Quiz Plagiarise This

Answer: Michelle Obama

Some 9 years previously, Michelle Obama made a moving speech at the Democratic National Convention. Following Melania Trump's address at the RNC, comparisons were quickly drawn by journalists between the two speeches, which both emphasised themes of perseverance and mutual respect. Whether or not there was actual plagiarism involved, the team behind the speech denied any such claims.

116. Brain Teasers: Karate is to Japan as Krav Maga is to...?

From Quiz The Fighting Type

Answer: Israel

Karate is a form of martial arts that developed in Japan with origins dating as far back as the 14th century. Krav Maga is a martial arts form of self defense that originated in Israel during the mid-20th century. It was developed by Hungarian born Imi Lichtenfeld as a way to defend himself against anti-Semitism.

117. Spirit was the name of an American rock band whose heyday was the 1970s. Although several of the band members are now dead, the band was in the news in 2016 (not long before this quiz was written). Why?

From Quiz School "Spirit"!

Answer: Led Zeppelin was on trial for stealing part of one of Spirit's songs.

Jimmy Page and Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin were accused of plagiarism, as the guitar part of Led Zeppelin's 1971 song "Stairway to Heaven" was deemed similar to Spirit's 1967 song "Taurus". In 2016, the case, filed by the estate of the late guitarist Randy California (real name Randy Wolfe), went to trial. The jury ruled in favor of Led Zeppelin.

118. Talk about rough beginnings! What member of the National Football League started out with an amazing 26 straight losses?

From Quiz (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction

Answer: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had the literal definition of bad start, losing 26 straight games during their first two seasons. Their first victory was against the New Orleans Saints on December 11, 1977. It would take Tampa 26 years before they won the Superbowl. The Chargers did extremely poorly during their 2000 season, with 11 straight losses before their only victory against the Kansas City Chiefs. Their final record: 1-15. The 1980 New Orleans Saints were so bad they were nicknamed the "Aint's". Their only victory was a 21-20 win over the New York Jets on December 14. Their final record: also 1-15. The Detroit Lions had an incredibly awful 2008 season, finishing zero and 16, and with three additional losses, 19 straight losses during 2008-2009.

119. According to legend, the proof that the future King Arthur descended from King Uther Pendragon was a sword encased in what substance?

From Quiz Fate Plays Chess

Answer: Stone

The legend of King Arthur tells that Merlin the mage led the young Arthur to the stone. No one had been able to remove it, but he did, proving to be the son of Uther. As one story tells it, a group of men had assembled to attempt to remove it. Arthur was not among them, but was at a nearby tournament. When a competitor broke his sword, Arthur left to find a replacement, and pulled the sword out. A second legend again has a group of men assembled, Arthur among them. When his turn comes, he easily pulls the sword free. Regardless of the story, he was fated to become King. Norse legend tells of a sword driven into a tree by Loki, which is pulled out by Sigmund, father of Siegfried. This could also be the source for the Arthurian legend.
