Thematic Other Trivia Questions

1. What is the high kick in the French can-can dance called?

From Quiz
Can It!

Answer: battement

They are all can-can dance moves. Grand écart is a flying or jump split while the port d'armes refers to the turning on one leg while grasping the ankle of the other, lifting vertically. The ronde de jambe is the lifting of the knee and quick rotation of the lower leg while holding the skirt up. Ooh la la!

2. The plaintive song "Only the Lonely" was not only written by Roy Orbison, but also by whom?

From Quiz The "Only" Quiz You Need to Take

Answer: Joe Melson

Texas natives Melson and Orbison collaborated on a slew of popular songs, including "Crying" and "Blue Bayou". Both men are in the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

3. When thinking of a "ville", the first thing that comes to mind are cities. There are many "ville" cities in the world, but only two of them are national capitals. In which continent can you find both of them?

From Quiz Who-Ville

Answer: Africa

Libreville is the capital city of Gabon. Its name can be roughly translated to "Free Town", as it actually comprises two languages ("Libre" is Spanish for "Free", and "Ville" is French for "Town"). It is located at the northwest of the country, on the Atlantic Coast. Its neighbor, the Congo Republic, has Brazzaville as its capital. The name of the city honors its founder, Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza. It is located on the shore of the Congo River, and directly opposite from Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, with the river being the boundary between both countries.

4. In a snowsport holiday resort, who, or what, are moguls?

From Quiz Where Do The Moguls Go At Night?...

Answer: Mounds of snow created by skiers and snowboarders turning in the same place continually

When skiers and snowboarders make turns in the same places, it causes mounds of snows to build up. These can be of differing heights. Traversing mogul fields can be challenging, especially for inexperienced skiers or snowboarders. Moguls skiing is one of the six disciplines in the FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup. The idea is to zip down a prepared mogul field in the fastest time. Mogul skiing is technically and physically punishing. You may sometimes see former mogul racers sitting together comparing their most recent knee reconstruction operation.

5. If a squirrel were to bury an acorn, what type of tree would grow from it?

From Quiz Squirrelled Away

Answer: Oak

A literal case of squirrelling away, it's known that squirrels very purposely store nuts away for the winter, at a time when food is more scarce for them to locate. Acorns, the nuts of the oak tree, fall during the autumn and are a particularly nutritious food for animals of all sorts. When they're buried, though, they are effectively seeds for oaks. A properly-tended acorn will grow into a mighty oak tree if left in a spot with nutrient-rich soil, proper sunlight, and enough water to sustain. If an oak tree is solitary, it will produce more acorns with the intent to spread more of itself around.

6. Former Taoisigh of Ireland, Charles Haughey and Enda Kenny, were both born in which Irish county?

From Quiz May You Score Highly

Answer: Mayo

County Mayo with its beautiful rugged coastline is home to some of the most breath taking views in Ireland. It is also the home ground of many famous people apart from Haughey and Kenny, with founder of the Irish National Land League Michael Davitt, and founder of the Argentine Navy Admiral William Brown, both born there. Political figures William O'Dwyer, who was the 100th mayor of New York City and Mary Robinson, the first female President of Ireland were also born within the county.

7. The poet Lord Byron once said 'I should like, I think, to die of consumption...' Why on earth would he say such a thing?

From Quiz The Arts and Tuberculosis

Answer: Pale, slim and languid was the fashionable look of the day

The end of the quote is, "...because then the women would all say, 'see that poor Byron - how interesting he looks in dying!'" Tuberculosis (aka TB, consumption, phthisis, scrofula, white death and others) is an infectious disease of the lungs that has afflicted us globally for at least 9000 years. It became a serious killer in Europe and North America around the end of the 18th century, as the Industrial Revolution kicked in and people started to move into cities. Weirdly, the prevalence of the disease prompted the 'consumptive' look in high-class fashion that would last for most of the 19th century. Ladies would paint themselves white, pinch their cheeks to get that fashionable hectic flush and use belladonna drops in their eyes to dilate their pupils. Byron himself tended to put on weight easily and was a slave to reducing diets to achieve the slender figure that was so in demand.

8. In which 1967 film does Louis Prima voice a character who claims to the "King of the Swingers"?

From Quiz Lord of the Swings

Answer: The Jungle Book

Louis Prima was the voice of King Louie, the orangutan who wanted Mowgli to give him the secret of fire so that he could be "like you". Prima was a trumpeter and bandleader whose career dated back to the 1920s.

9. Add four letters to the word fire to find a methane gas.

From Quiz Splash's Quick Fire Word Play

Answer: Firedamp

When methane mixes with air it produces a flammable gas. It is commonly found in coal mines and was the cause of many deaths during the early part of the Industrial Revolution in Great Britain. Firedamp is also sometimes called minedamp. Despite advance in technology, such as the Davy Lamp which could detect methane, mining continues to be a hazardous occupation. Worldwide, around 15,000 miners are killed each year, though a range of causes.

10. The Triple Crown of Acting encompasses winning the Oscar, Emmy and Tony Awards. Who was the first person to achieve this distinction?

From Quiz Three Crowns or a Triple Crown

Answer: Helen Hayes

The possibility of winning what came to be known as the 'Triple Crown' of acting was only made possible from 1949 onwards, when the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences founded its annual award ceremony, which it called the Emmy Awards. This joined the ceremony of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (the Oscars), and the ceremony jointly held by the American Theatre Wing and the Broadway League (the Tony Awards). Helen Hayes won the first of her awards in 1932, when she was awarded the Oscar for Best Actress for her role in "The Sin of Madelon Claudet". In 1947, she won the Tony for Best Actress in a Play for "Happy Birthday", while in 1953 she completed the Triple Crown by being awarded the Emmy for Best Actress - until 1954, this award was not for a specific performance, but for a body of work during the year. Helen Hayes subsequently won another Tony in 1958, and a further Oscar in 1970, as well as winning a Grammy in 1978 to become one of a handful of people to be an EGOT winner of each of the major entertainment awards.

11. Two very different companies that share a name. Who produced a bra called the Amourette and a car called the Stag?

From Quiz Tri, Tri and Tri Again

Answer: Triumph

When your wife tells you she is going to buy a new Triumph, don't get too excited. Chances are you're not getting a sporty little roadster. Triumph, the lingerie company, were founded in Germany in 1886 and also retail underwear under the brand name "sloggi". They began life as a corset manufacturer, introducing bras to their range in the 1920s and their products can now be found in the bedrooms of ladies throughout the world. Triumph the motor manufacture started life as a bicycle retailer in 1885, switched to producing motorcycles in 1902 and then made the leap to car manufacture in 1919. The company met with financial difficulties several times over the years, resulting in the selling off of the motorcycle arm in 1936, and the car manufacturer going into receivership in 1939 before being bought by a variety of companies, such as Standard Motor Company in 1944, Leyland Motors in 1960 and BMW in 1994.

12. The okapi is an African animal related to the giraffe. On which part of the animal can you see stripes?

From Quiz Stripes

Answer: Legs

The stripes are reminiscent of the zebra, but the okapi is one of the two animals in the Giraffidae family. It has a coat of reddish brown with the distinctive white stripes covering the whole of its leg down to the ankles, which are white. It is native to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in the central part of Africa, and has been classed as endangered since 2013.

13. OUTDOOR PLAY "The Lost Colony" is an outdoor historical drama that has been performed every summer in the city of Manteo since 1937. Which lost colony do you suppose this play is based on?

From Quiz Outdoor Entertainment

Answer: Roanoke Island, North Carolina

The colony on Roanoke Island in North Carolina was settled by the English in 1587 and was not doing well. John White, the leader, sailed back to England for more supplies but was delayed because of hostilities with Spain. By the time he got back in 1590, the entire colony had vanished. The only clue was the word "CROATAN" carved into a post of the colony's palisade and letters "CRO" carved into a tree. In more than 400 years since then, the mystery has never been solved. But if you attend the outdoor play put on throughout the summer every year in Manteo, you may find out.

14. Through which country does the River Po flow 405 miles (652 km) to the sea?

From Quiz All About Po

Answer: Italy

The Po River in Northern Italy is the longest river in the country. It arises in the Cottain Alps from which it flows through the cities of Turin, Piacenza and Ferrara before its empties into the Adriatic Sea. The river is connected to Milan by canals; Leonardo da Vinci participated in their design. There is much conjecture as to how the Po got its name; one common theory is that it derives from the Celtic or Veneti name for the river which was "Padus."

15. The English word 'general' is derived from which ancient language?

From Quiz 'General' Knowledge

Answer: Latin

From its Latin root, via Old French, the word 'general' entered Middle English in which its meaning was much the same as today's. Its primary uses are as an adjective describing something widespread, and as a noun to indicate an army officer of high rank.

16. What is the name of the island from which Mount Erebus rises?

From Quiz Erebus

Answer: Ross Island

Named for James Clark Ross, whose expedition to the Antarctic was the first to discover the Ross Ice Shelf, Ross Island, and the volcano Mt Erebus in 1841. The island is also the location of another volcano, Mt Terror, and two non-volcanic mountains. Ross was knighted on his return to England.

20. In which far-north location would you be able to visit the Global Seed Vault?

From Quiz Squirrelled Away

Answer: Svalbard

How far north is Svalbard? Well, it's one of the furthest-north inhabited locations you can visit on the globe, a three hour flight north from Oslo, Norway. Its importance, in the context of this question, is in regards to a massive underground structure known as the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, built with the intent to house seeds from all around the world, ensuring backups of critical plants, crops, and biodiverse organisms in the case of natural or manmade disasters. By the year 2020, the vault contained more than one million seed samples originating from all corners of the globe.

21. There is a well known Irish blessing which starts with Go n-éirí an bóthar leat. What does this translate to?

From Quiz May You Score Highly

Answer: May the road rise to meet you

The blessing in full is; Go n-éirí an bóthar leat (May the road rise to meet you) Go raibh an ghaoth go brách ag do chúl (May the wind be always at your back) Go lonraí an ghrian go te ar d'aghaidh (May the sun shine warm upon your face) Go dtite an bháisteach go mín ar do pháirceanna (May the rains fall softly upon your fields) Agus go mbuailimid le chéile arís, (And until we meet again) Go gcoinní Dia i mbos A láimhe thú.

22. Detail was everything in "Titanic" (1997) to the extent that James Cameron revised his original film to be more accurate. Nonetheless, in one scene you might be able to spot a passenger wearing which anachronistic item?

From Quiz How Did THAT Get There?

Answer: Digital watch

Though "Titanic" was wildly celebrated after its release in 1997, winning a swath of Academy Awards and being considered one of the great romantic dramas of its day, even James Cameron felt that he needed to go back and make some changes to bring it up to snuff. Cameron is particularly known for receiving feedback from Neil DeGrasse Tyson who claimed that the night sky, seen from the ocean, would not have had the same pattern of stars as it was in the film (because the night sky would have had constellations in different places on the specific date). In later, restored versions of the movie, the night sky was changed to reflect the stars as they were in April 1912. It was one of many changes, but reasonably James Cameron couldn't catch them all (like the inaccuracies regarding places in the script and the occasional wardrobe screw-up).

23. This young poet, who wrote that he was "...half in love with easeful Death", became the model for how tuberculosis was believed to heighten sensitivity and imagination as it consumed you. Who was he?

From Quiz The Arts and Tuberculosis

Answer: John Keats

' ...I have been half in love with easeful Death, Call'd him soft names in many a mused rhyme, To take into the air my quiet breath; Now more than ever seems it rich to die, To cease upon the midnight with no pain...' ('Ode to a Nightingale', 1818) John Keats died of TB at the age of 25. By that time his mother and his younger brother had already died of the same disease. He had been publishing for only four years prior to his death and at that time he was not particularly well known outside a small circle of intellectual friends. After his death his poetry soared in popularity and would inspire writers throughout the century. His death also leant credence to a theory that tuberculosis stimulated mental acuity and creativity. As one doctor wrote in 1891, "Tuberculosis patients particularly young talented individuals . . . display enormous intellectual capacity of the creative kind." By the middle of the century, Alexandre Dumas would write, "It was the fashion to suffer from the lungs; everybody was consumptive, poets especially; it was good form to spit blood after any emotion that was at all sensational, and to die before reaching the age of thirty."

24. Which song, recorded originally by Bing Crosby in 1944 and revived by Big Dee Irwin and Little Eva in 1963, warns that "if you hate to go to school, you may grow up to be a mule"?

From Quiz Lord of the Swings

Answer: Swinging on a Star

Another verse of the song maintains that "if you don't give a feather or a fig, you may grow up to be a pig". Written by Jimmy van Heusen and Johnny Burke, the song was written for the film "Going My Way" and won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.

25. Add four letters to the word quick to find somewhere you may feel a sinking sensation.

From Quiz Splash's Quick Fire Word Play

Answer: Quicksand

Quicksand is defined as a deep mass of loose sand into which heavy objects sink. Despite its fearsome reputation, scientific sources state it is impossible to drown in quicksand. The theory is that because the human body is less dense than the sand, a person would only sink chest deep. Getting out might still be problematical, though.

26. In thoroughbred horse racing in the United States, there are three races that make up the Triple Crown. The Belmont Stakes and the Kentucky Derby are two, but what is the third?

From Quiz Three Crowns or a Triple Crown

Answer: Preakness Stakes

The Preakness Stakes is a race for three-year olds, run over 9.5 furlongs at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. Traditionally taking place on the third Saturday in May, it is the second leg of the Triple Crown of thoroughbred racing, taking place two weeks after the Kentucky Derby, and three weeks before the Belmont Stakes. First run in 1873, the race was named by then Governor of Maryland, Oden Bowie, after Preakness, a horse who had won on the first day of Pimlico's opening in 1870. Although it is primarily known for its home in Baltimore, for fifteen years between 1894 and 1908, the race was held at Gravesend Race Track on Coney Island in New York. The first winner of the race, Survivor, won by ten lengths, the largest margin of victory until that record was broken in 2004, when Smarty Jones achieved victory by 11.5 lengths.

27. Sine, cosine and tangent are terms used in which area of mathematics?

From Quiz Tri, Tri and Tri Again

Answer: Trigonometry

Trigonometry concerns the relationships between side lengths and angles of triangles and while it was an area of mathematics I never cared for at school, it has many practical functions and is used in astronomy, surveying, civil and electrical engineering as well as in video game development. Although trigonometry has been used since the times of the ancient Egyptians and Babylonians, it was Greek mathematician Hipparchus of Nicaea who is credited with compiling the first trigonometric table in 140 BC and is known as the "the father of trigonometry".

28. The 1968 film, "Boom!", starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton was based on the play, "The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore" (1963), written by which playwright?

From Quiz Booms And Bangs

Answer: Tennessee Williams

The movie, which also starred Noel Coward as The Witch of Capri, was a strange choice for a film adaptation as the Williams play received poor reviews and ran for only 69 performances. Reviews for the film were, if anything, even worse, with critics asking "Why was Boom! filmed in the first place?" and describing it as "a pompous, pointless nightmare".

29. Which English football (soccer) club is called the Magpies because of the black and white stripes on their home shirts?

From Quiz Stripes

Answer: Newcastle United

Founded in 1892, Newcastle United are well known for their shirts, and the black and white stripes even feature on the club's badge along with two seahorses. Their home ground has been St James's Park since they were founded and remains so at the time of writing, in 2020.

30. UNUSUAL FAIRS An unusual fair is held every year in early fall in Sauk City Wisconsin that is built around a contest where you have to see how far you can throw something. What is it you have to throw? Hint: wear gloves.

From Quiz Outdoor Entertainment

Answer: Cow turds

When the first settlers reached the Great Plains, they were faced with a scarcity of timber for fuel and home building. They found an acceptable substitute - buffalo dung. When the chips are dry, they burn with a hot heat and very little smell or smoke. The Wisconsin State Cow Chip Throw and Festival is meant to celebrate this object that was so useful to their ancestors.
