Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral, who fought on the side of the Earp brothers?

Answer: Doc Holliday

A dentist and gambler by trade, Doc Holliday had been in a few gunfights previously and was a long-time friend of the Earps. He was only grazed in the 1881 Arizona gunfight and died of tuberculosis in Colorado in 1887, at age 36.
2. Where is the southernmost point in the continental United States?

Answer: Key West, Florida

It was Bogie and Bacall in Key Largo but Jimmy Buffett staked his claim to fame in Key West, as far south as you can go on the mainland. The southernmost point in the continental United States is at the corner of Whitehead and South streets. The actual marker looks like...a giant can of shaving cream!
3. How do you tell the age of the saguaro cactus, the blossom of which is Arizona's state flower?

Answer: by its height

With the saguaro, it's all about the height, which can be as much as 60 feet (18 meters); some have been known to live over 150 years. An iconic symbol of the American Southwest, saguaros may or may not grow arms; if they do it usually takes at least 75 years.

They are indigenous to the Sonoran Desert of Mexico and Arizona and some parts of California. They produce white flowers at the end of their arms in May and June.
4. What is the largest known cave system in the world?

Answer: Mammoth

Mammoth Cave (officially Mammoth-Flint Ridge Cave System) extends under three counties in Kentucky, U.S.A. It has over 400 miles (643 km) of explored caves; more are added each year. There is evidence of it being used since 8,000 B.C
5. A thank-you party that went all wrong was the premise for a story about a bunch of bums trying to do right. Turns out Doc, Hazel, Eddie and the rest are a bit more complicated than at first glance. Which John Steinbeck novel was it?

Answer: Cannery Row

John Steinbeck was a native Californian and many of his stories had Monterey County as their basis. "Cannery Row" was about a group of characters in the city of Monterey, trying to do as little work as possible and going to work in one of the fish canneries only as a last resort. Steinbeck was thinking of Ocean View Avenue when he wrote the book and Monterey later renamed it Cannery Row in honor of the book.
6. The line of Southern tropic latitude passes through Australia. What is its name?

Answer: Capricorn

The Tropic of Capricorn is the southernmost latitude where the sun passes directly overhead. That occurs on the day of the December solstice.
7. What was the name of the raft that Thor Heyerdahl sailed across the Pacific Ocean in in 1947?

Answer: Kon-Tiki

Thor Heyerdahl believed humans had sailed from South America to Polynesia in prehistoric times. In 1947, he built a raft with a cabin made out of balsa, bamboo and hand-woven manila rope and named it after an ancient Incan high priest, Con-Tiki. He and a crew of five made the successful voyage from Callao, Peru to Raroia, French Polynesia in 101 days.
8. What started out as a means of "radical self-expression" in 1986 has become an event that attracts over 50,000 people to northwest Nevada each year. What is the name of the event?

Answer: Burning Man

Started by two friends in San Francisco, California in 1986, Burning Man moved to the Black Rock Desert in Nevada in 1990. The week-long late August art festival features many pyrotechnic and other events culminating in its namesake event, the burning of a 40 ft (12 m) wooden man effigy.

The radical self-expression of the thousands attending eventually led to such mundane restrictions as a speed limit in the area, a grid street structure and a ban on driving motor vehicles. It now has its own "brand".
9. Which English king's skeleton was found in 2012 after being missing for over 500 years?

Answer: Richard III

The remains of Richard III were found in September, 2012, under a car parking lot in Leicester, England, at the spot where the Church of the Grey Friars once stood. His body was quickly buried there after he was killed in the Battle of Bosworth Field on August 22, 1485.

The remains were identified as his by comparing DNA from one of the body's teeth to mitochondrial DNA from the last two female descendants of Richard.
10. From the same company that produced one of the sleekest, most sophisticated fighter aircraft of World War II and was prohibited from making aircraft afterwards, came this. Which company built this two-seater car?

Answer: Messerschmitt

The KR200, or Kabinenroller (Cabin Scooter) was a three-wheeled car which seated two, one behind the other. Messerschmitt produced it from 1955 to 1964. Called the Bubble Car because of its clear top, which opened sideways to allow access, it was also produced in a roadster version. Having a 9.9 hp (7.4 kW) engine, it could reach speeds of 90 km/h (56 mph); it was a very popular urban car.
