20. Americans celebrate February 22nd as George Washington's birthday, though he was actually born on February 11th. What explains this apparent discrepancy?

From Quiz What Day Is It? - World Calendars

Answer: Calendar transition occurred during Washington's lifetime

When Washington was born on February 11th, England and its colonies still observed the Julian calendar. During his lifetime, they adopted the Gregorian calendar and skipped eleven days in doing so. This obviously required adjustments to schedules and business transactions. Less obviously, it offered people the option of when to celebrate their birthday. Washington chose to use the date (February 22nd) based on the new calendar, which was the day he would have been born on if the Gregorian calendar had been in use at that time in the US.

21. In "American Gods" (both the book and TV show), the character name Mr. Wednesday turns out to be what god?

From Quiz Wacky Wednesday

"American Gods," by Neil Gaiman, blends elements of several different mythologies into a fantasy story set in modern times. In it, Mr. Wednesday travels across America attempting to recruit various gods from traditional mythologies into a war against a new race of gods who represent manifestations of modern technology.

22. Which Major League Baseball team finally ended their 108 year championship drought in 2016?

From Quiz At Long Last

Answer: Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs are one of the oldest teams in Major League Baseball. They debuted in 1876 as the Chicago White Stockings and changed their name to the Chicago Cubs in 1903. They were given the nickname "the Lovable Losers" as the team went 108 years without winning the World Series title. The Cubs' championship drought finally came to an end in 2016, when the Cubs defeated the Cleveland Indians, who had also been on a long championship drought. Prior to 2016, the Cubs' last World Series victory came against the Detroit Tigers in 1908.

23. Charlton Heston must take down a sniper hidden in a stadium during which type of game in the 1976 film "Two Minute Warning"?

From Quiz Instigator Penalty

Answer: American Football

A two-minute warning is given when two minutes of playing time remain on the game clock in each half of a National Football League (NFL) match. A sniper has been spotted, by the camera on the Goodyear Blimp, positioned inside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum during a Championship football match akin to the Super Bowl. Police Captain Peter Holly (Heston) is brought in and he endeavours to set up a plan to capture or take out the assassin with the SWAT team Sergeant played by John Cassavetes. As the two minute warning in the game approaches the sniper sees that he's trapped and opens fire, shooting at random targets in the stadium. Panic erupts and many spectators are killed or injured in the stampede that ensues. Sadly the all star ensemble, which also included Martin Balsam, Beau Bridges, David Janssen, Jack Klugman, Gena Rowlands and Walter Pidgeon could not lift the film above the average. The film would be heavily criticised for its focus on violence.

24. (World) Which U.S presidential candidate put out an ad in 2008 which posed the question, "It's 3 am and your children are safe and asleep. Who do *you* want answering the phone?"

From Quiz It's Three AM

Answer: Hillary Clinton

The ad was considered to have been effective as a "scare tactic". Hillary Clinton also lost the 2016 presidential election and a Maine East High School senior class one, after which one of her male rivals told her she was "really stupid" if she thought girls could be presidents. Is stupidity, perhaps, less of an obstacle for an aspiring candidate?

25. Animals: Which bird has become a symbol of Christmas in the UK? Its scientific name of Erithacus rubecula may give you a hint to its colouration.

From Quiz It's Christmas Time

Answer: Robin redbreast

Robin redbreast is an older name for the bird often simply called a robin in these modern times. Once thought to be a type of thrush, it's now classed as an Old World flycatcher along with other birds such as chats and thrushes. Despite its name, the breast and face of a robin aren't red - they are orange. Until the 16th century, there was no distinct word in English for orange when the fruit known as an orange was first seen in the UK. Oranges were considered a shade of red. A small bird usually no longer than 14 cm (5.5 in), the robin is diurnal and insectivorous. Found throughout the UK, Europe and northern Africa, they are quite settled in their home territories and will defend it fiercely. The only robins who migrate south for the winter are the robins in the far northern reaches of Europe and Siberia who need to escape the bitter cold of an Arctic winter. Whilst the robin has been mentioned in children's book and Norse mythology, it's the UK and northwestern France which has the biggest tradition of robin folklore. From the mid-19th century, robins have appeared on British Christmas cards and the association of robins with Christmas has grown over time. Birds in other continents such as North America and Australia have been given the name of robin due to their colouration resembling the European robin, but they are in different Avian families. The blue tit, greenshank and yellowhammer are also British birds. Question crafted by Tizzabelle, one of our editors in the Animals category.

26. How long does it take light from the sun to reach the earth?

From Quiz Do You Have The Time?

Answer: about eight minutes

Light, in the form of photons, takes time to travel through the vacuum of space, which it does at about 186,000 miles a second. As the earth is approximately 93 million miles from the sun, the math says the journey takes slightly over eight minutes. Theoretically, then, if the sun were to suddenly go dark, you wouldn't know it until eight minutes later.
