Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Justin Bieber

Answer: Canada

In spite of much of his career being associated with the United States, Justin Bieber is actually Canadian. He was born and still lives in Ontario. His most famous album is clearly "Believe", which is also the source of the nickname "Beliebers" for his fans - a portmanteau of "Believer" and "Bieber".
2. Albert Einstein

Answer: Germany

Born in Ulm, Bavaria, in 1879, Einstein lived in many European countries as well as in the USA. He is most well known for his general and specialized theories of relativity, although he received his Nobel Prize (Physics 1921) for discovering the photoelectric effect - allegedly this was chosen over relativity because the Nobel committee did not understand the profound mathematics behind Einstein's main work!
3. Kibbutzim

Answer: Israel

Kibbutzim are agricultural communities in Israel, using a collective ownership model that resembles communism on a small scale. Kibbutzim exist both in deeply religious (usually orthodox) Jewish variants and in more worldly versions. Equality between all people, regardless of gender and age, is a central tenet of the Kibbutz movement.
4. FIFA World Cup 2010

Answer: South Africa

In 2010, the long-standing tradition of the FIFA World Cup (the soccer world championship final tournament) alternating between Europe and America was broken and the event was run in South Africa. Spain defeated the Netherlands 1-0 in extra time for their first title; Germany took third place with a 3-2 win over Uruguay. Spain won all four of its elimination games 1-0.
5. Guinness

Answer: Ireland

Guinness is a dry stout, a red medium strength beer brewed using essentially the same recipe ever since 1759. The Dublin-based brewery is leased to the Guinness family for 9,000 years, at an annual fee of just 45 pounds (57 Euros). If you're a fan of it, you can thus look forward to another over 8,600 years of your favorite brand not having problems paying its rent!
6. Giant Panda

Answer: China

Unlike the red panda (or bear-cat), the iconic black and white giant panda is a member of the Ursidae family and thus a true bear. Like all bears, it is classified as a carnivore, but its diet is actually herbivorous, consisting almost exclusively of bamboo.

It has become the symbol of endangered animals mostly by virtue of it being the World Wildlife Fund's mascot, but it is not as critically endangered as it may seem: Its status is "vulnerable", the least severe of the three "threatened" categories.
7. Amazon

Answer: Brazil

The Amazon begins in Peru and touches Colombia but most of it is located in Brazil. Some of its tributaries originate in Ecuador, Bolivia, Venezuela and Guyana as well. It has the largest discharge of any river on Earth; approximately a fifth of all river water entering the sea each second does so via the Amazon.

Answer: United States

ENIAC was one of the first ever electronic, programmable general-purpose computers. Built in 1946, it was able to perform 5000 simple operations (on 10-digit decimal numbers per second); a multiplication of two 10-digit numbers took 3/1000 of a second. It used over 17,000 vacuum tubes as its main active elements.
9. The Hajj

Answer: Saudi Arabia

The Hajj is the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina. Each able Muslim, male or female, is obliged to undertake it once in his or her life. It takes place in the last month of the Islamic calendar, Dhu al-Hijjah, and lasts six days. The sheer number of pilgrims make the Hajj a strictly regulated but still exceedingly mass event that has claimed hundreds of lives in some years.
10. Edda

Answer: Iceland

The Edda is a summary term for two medieval Icelandic sagas: the Elder Edda or Poetic Edda is a collection of poems, first assembled in the 13th century but dating back at least to the 12th. The Prose Edda was written by Snorri Sturluson in 1220. It survives in four manuscripts dating from the 14th to 16th century.
