Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Veni, vidi, vici

Answer: Julius Caesar

"Veni, vidi, vici" was used in a letter to the Roman Senate in 46 BC after Caesar's quick victory at the Battle of Zela "I came, I saw, I conquered." The phrase is used to refer to a swift, conclusive victory.,
2. Predestination

Answer: John Calvin

In Christian theology, predestination is the divine foreordaining of all that will happen, especially with regard to the salvation of some and not others. It was first a teaching by St. Augustine of Hippo and popularized by John Calvin later. In its simplest form, some will be born with salvation but many will not.

The Puritans were most influenced by Calvin and felt that even though one might not have salvation, all should live under high standards of moral life.
3. Seven dirty words

Answer: George Carlin

On July 21, 1972, George Carlin was arrested for performing his "seven dirty words" monologue at Milwaukee's Summerfest. He was charged with violating obscenity laws. The case, which prompted Carlin to refer to the words for a time as "the Milwaukee Seven", was dismissed in December of that year.

The judge declared that the language was indecent but Carlin had the freedom to say it as long as he caused no disturbance according to the first amendment to the constitution. A FunTrivia editor certainly would not allow me to tell you the seven but several clips on YouTube would bring you up-to-date.-:)
4. Don Juan

Answer: Carlos Castaneda

In all likelihood Don Juan was a fictional character that Carlos Castaneda, PhD used to enhance his research in his twelve published books. Don Juan is a shaman; Castaneda narrated, in the first person, his experiences under the tutelage of the Yaqui "Man of Knowledge" named Don Juan Matus.

These books sold twenty-eight million copies in seventeen languages. Critics still suggest that they are works of fiction. Supporters claim the books are valuable works of philosophy and descriptions of Yaqui culture and an awareness of energies, and worlds beyond the perceptual paradigm of the vast majority of human beings.
5. The sleeping prophet

Answer: Edgar Cayce

Edgar Cayce was a clairvoyant who answered questions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis, and future events while being in a trance, hence the nickname, "The Sleeping Prophet". He is often cited as founder of the New Age movement. Cayce made contributions to diet and health, particularly the issues of food combining, acid/alkaline diet, and the therapeutic use of food.

Among his correct predictions are the stock market Crash of 1929,
World War Two, and the emergence of communication companies.

Wrong predictions were that California would drop into the ocean in the 1960s, there would be a world-wide Armageddon in 1999, and that China would adopt Christianity in 1968.
6. French cooking

Answer: Julia Child

Of all the chefs that parade over our television screens, Julia Child remains unduplicated. Her love of French cooking revived an art that effected how people looked at food. Her several shows were on both public and commercial television. Before video tape, her live programs were peppered with occasional mistakes but there was always the completed recipe that was prepared before the show.
7. Chinese philosopher

Answer: Confucius

Many of us first heard of Confucius through old Charlie Chan movies when Charlie would quote Confucius in regard to his current case. Confucius is believed to have lived 551-479 BC) and was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician. I picked out three quotes that I liked.

"By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest".

"The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence".

"Never give a sword to a man who can't dance".
8. Holy Roman Empire

Answer: Charlemagne

Charlemagne or Charles the Great was King of the Franks from 768, King of the Lombards from 774, and Holy Roman Emperor from 800-814, famous for uniting western and central Europe during the Middle Ages. He was the first emperor to rule from western Europe since the fall of the Roman Empire.

I remember my college history professor saying "Three things you should know about the Holy Roman Empire. It wasn't Roman, it was not an empire, and it certainly wasn't holy."
9. Original "Hello Dolly"

Answer: Carol Channing

Carol Channing has one of the most recognizable voices in entertainment, found in both her speaking and singing. Because of her persona, roles have to be tailored to her talents because whatever the role, Carol is still Carol. She played Dolly originally on Broadway and in several revivals.

A little known fact is her grandmother was African-American and her father was German-American.
10. Former US Secretary of State

Answer: Hillary Clinton

In addition to serving as Secretary of State under Obama, she was First Lady and political partner of Bill Clinton, US Senator from New York, and Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, winning the popular vote but losing the electoral college.
