Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Upon realizing the concept of measuring volume by water displacement, Archimedes is said to have exclaimed something before leaping out of his bath and running down the street naked. What was it?

Answer: Eureka!

'Eureka' is a transliteration of the Ancient Greek word that translates as 'I have found (it)'. While not overly commonly used, it is still an available term within the English lexicon as a means of expressing the celebration of a discovery.

Archimedes was born circa 287 BC, and died circa 212 BC. One of the greatest mathematicians and physicists of his day, he is known not only for running through the streets of Syracuse naked, but also for developing what is now know as Archimedes' principle, which states: 'Any object, wholly or partially immersed in a fluid, is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object.' He is also known for Archimedes' screw, an example of which is an augur.
2. This American cavalry officer was made famous not for his distinguished service during the Civil War, but rather for dying at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Who was he?

Answer: George Armstrong Custer

Despite finishing last in his class at West Point, Custer managed to fare quite well over many campaigns as a highly effective (Union) cavalry commander. He also played a decisive role in the Appomattox Campaign, which resulted in General Lee's surrender (accepted by General Grant on April 9th, 1865).

After the Civil War, Custer was sent to fight in the Indian Wars. In only his second campaign, Custer led the 7th Cavalry to a massacre at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana (June 25th and 26th, 1876). It came to be known as 'Custer's Last Stand'.
3. Which company, formed in 1892, changed its slogan from "We bring good things to life" to "Imagination at work" in 2003?

Answer: General Electric

General Electric (commonly referred to as GE) was formed in 1892 as a merger between the Edison General Electric Company of Schenectady, New York and the Thomson-Houston Electric Company of Lynn, Massachusetts. Over the years, the company has gone through a few slogan changes:

1896: "Live Better electrically"
1955: "Living better electrically"
1960: "Better Living through technology"
1970: "Progress for People" and "Progress is our most important product"
1979: "We bring good things to life"
2003: "Imagination at work"

GE has four main divisions: Energy, Technology Infrastructure, Capital Finance and Consumer & Industrial
4. Which 'golden' state was the 31st to be admitted to the Union?

Answer: California

California was first visited by European explorers as early as 1542; a Spanish expedition led by Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo. The first European settlements did not become established until the late 1700s when Spanish missionaries began setting up 21 Missions on or near to the coast of what was called Alto California (alto meaning upper). At the same time the Spanish military also built several presidios (forts) and three small pueblos (towns).

After the Mexican War of Independence (1810-1821), Mexico was born out of New Spain and Alto California became a province. A series of revolts occurred during the 1830s and 1840s, and in 1846 the California Republic was born. Their independence did not last long - California was invaded and occupied that same year by the United States. The Treaty of Cahuenga was signed in 1847, keeping California under the control of the US.

California joined the Union as the 31st State on May 9th, 1850.
5. In 1980, when he was turning this age, John Lennon wrote the song, "Life Begins at ___". What age?

Answer: 40

Both Ringo Starr's and John Lennon's 40th birthdays were in 1980. Tragically for John, his life ended at 40 when he was shot by Mark David Chapman on December 8th.

Lennon recorded a demo of the song, but did not include it in his comeback album "Double Fantasy". Instead, he was going to give it to Ringo Starr for his album "Can't Fight Lightning". After Lennon's death, though, it never happened.

Eventually, the demo recording was released on 1998's "John Lennon Anthology".
6. The Dubuisson brewery in Belgium makes four types of beer, all called what same name, a translation of 'Dubuisson'?

Answer: Bush

The Dubuisson brewery was founded in 1769 by a farmer by the name of Joseph Leroy. In 1931, two brothers (Alfred and Amédée Dubuisson, descendants of Leroy) changed the business from a local brewery on a farm to a brewery aimed at the international market. Using both Belgian and English brewing methods, they marketed their product with the English translation of Dubuisson: Bush.

The four types of beer they produce are Bush (7%), Bush Blonde (10.5%), Bush de Noël (12%), and Bush Ambrée (12%).
7. What was the name of the television series that starred Clint Eastwood as Rowdy Yates?

Answer: Rawhide

"Rawhide" aired from January 1959 until January 1966, for a total of 217 episodes. Clint Eastwood's character Rowdy Yates was a drover on a (seemingly never-ending) cattle run, along with trail boss Gil Favor (played by Eric Fleming) and a number of other men.

The show invariably had some problem encountered along the trail (people, towns, wildlife) that had to be dealt with before they could continue on. In the show, the cattle drive began in San Antonio, Texas, and was heading for Sedalia, Missouri.
8. Which former child star and Oscar-winning Best Actress made her directing debut with the 1991 film "Little Man Tate"?

Answer: Jodie Foster

Born Alicia Christian Foster, Jodie Foster began her acting career at the tender age of three in a Coppertone commercial. At age 13 she was nominated for her first Oscar (Best Supporting Actress) for her role as a young prostitute in "Taxi Driver" (1976). She won her first Best Actress Oscar for 1988's "The Accused", then her second for 1991's "Silence of the Lambs".

"Little Man Tate" (1991) starred Foster as a single mother trying to cope with raising a child prodigy.
9. What degenerative disease, first described in 1906 by a German psychiatrist and neuropathologist, is the most common form of dementia?

Answer: Alzheimer's disease

Aloysius 'Alois' Alzheimer (1864-1915) made his observations of a patient by the name of Auguste Deter between 1901 and Deter's death in 1906. His findings were presented in a speech on November 3rd of that year. By 1911 his description was being used to diagnose the disease across Europe and in the USA.

Alzheimer's disease can develop differently for each patient, but common symptoms are evident: In its earliest stage, one has difficulty remembering recent events, and as it progresses one experiences (according to Wikipedia) "confusion, irritability, aggression, mood swings, trouble with language, and long-term memory loss".
10. And finally, what is the name of the leader that is the common bond that ties together the answers to the first nine questions?
