Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Originally named Gastown, this city is the largest in the Canadian province of British Columbia. Which one?

Answer: Vancouver

A tavern was established by "Gassy" Jack Deighton on July 1st, 1867 on the site that would grow as Gastown. Just three years later, the Colony of British Columbia surveyed the site and renamed it Granville, after the British Secretary of State for the Colonies, Lord Granville. Another fourteen years would see the site selected as the terminus for the Canadian Pacific Railway, after which it was renamed Vancouver and incorporated as a city in 1886.

At the 2016 Census, Vancouver had a population of 631,486, and the Greater Vancouver Area had 2,463,431 people.
2. On "Stargate: Atlantis", the super smart and super annoying Dr. McKay's first name was technically 'Meredith', but he preferred to be called by his middle name, which was what?

Answer: Rodney

Dr. Meredith Rodney McKay (a Canadian scientist) was portrayed by Canadian actor David Hewlett. The character made his first appearance in "Stargate: SG-1" during the fifth season, and then became one of the core members of the team that went through the Stargate to the Pegasus Galaxy and the Atlantis Base, establishing the spinoff series (that lasted five seasons).
3. Established in 1988 by Jeff Ott and Jack Curran, this Bay Area punk rock band produced thirteen albums before they disbanded in the year 2000. What was its name, which was coincidentally the number of different members it had during that time?

Answer: Fifteen

Fifteen was formed by Jeff Ott and Jack Curran, but Ott is the only member of the band that has been with the band all the way through. Other members have included Mikey Mischief, Mark Moreno, Jean Repetto, Lucky Dog, Chris Flanagan, John Ogle, Jesse Wickman, Joe Cable, John Quintos, Scott Pierce, Jim Prior, Lisa D., and Vanessa Bain.

The band's first self-titled album was released in 1990 through Lookout! Records.
4. According to "Forbes" magazine, this actress claimed the top of 'The World's Highest-Paid Actresses' list in both 2018 and 2019. Who is she?

Answer: Scarlett Johansson

According to "Forbes" magazine's estimates, Scarlett Johansson quadrupled her income (calculated earnings between June 2017 and June 2018) from the previous year largely due to her role as Black Widow in a number of "Marvel Cinematic Universe" movies. And then the next year she managed to increase that amount by nearly 50% to stay atop the list.
5. In 1985, "People" magazine declared that the then 29-year-old Mel Gibson was what?

Answer: The 'Sexiest Man Alive'

The 'Sexiest Man Alive' has been declared (nearly) every year by "People" magazine since Mel Gibson was the first one to top the list, and there are typically a number of 'honorable mentions' that get highlighted every year alongside the 'winner'.

The list reveal took some time to be established at a regular interval, and there was nobody named in 1994. That was rectified in 2015 when the magazine retroactively named (the 30-year-old in 1994) Keanu Reeves to the position for that year.
6. At the Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom, a stand-up rollercoaster was build in 1997 that set world records for height, drop, speed, length and number of inversions. Originally called 'Chang', it was moved in 2011 to Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey and renamed after which DC Comics hero?

Answer: Green Lantern

Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom originally had plans to give the ride a Batman theme, with a different coaster on site being named 'Batman: The Ride' and 'Chang' being renamed as 'Riddler's Revenge', but they scrapped those plans in favour of another development and disassembled the rollercoaster in 2009. Two years later, the identical rollercoaster was set up at Six Flags Great Adventure with a 'Green Lantern' theme.
7. In October of 2013, this actress, one of "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants", was named as the new face L'Oréal Paris. What is her name?

Answer: Blake Lively

Born in Los Angeles, Blake Lively is part of a family wholly engaged with the entertainment industry. Her father is an actor and acting coach while her mother was a talent scout. Her brother Eric and step-siblings Lori, Robyn and Jason are all actors and actresses to varying degrees, as well.

Blake's first acting credit was "Sandman" (1998) as a child with her father directing, but her first 'real' role as Bridget in 2005's "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" earned her the Teen Choice Award for "Choice Movie Breakout - Female" the following year. But it was probably her role as Serena van der Woodsen on "Gossip Girl" (2007-12) that established her as a star.

In 2013, Blake was named the new face of L'Oréal Paris - a title that goes to a different woman every year.
8. He was a quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys and the Oakland Raiders over a span of 17 years (1981-98) before retiring from play to become a QB coach (with the Cowboys). Who?

Answer: Wade Wilson

Charles Wade Wilson's best year was while he was with the Minnesota Vikings in 1988 when he completing 204 of 332 passes for 2,746 yards, had 15 touchdowns (and 9 interceptions), and ranked as the NFC leader with a 91.5 quarterback rating.

He coached from 2000 until 2017 almost exclusively with the Dallas Cowboys, outside of a three-year stint with the Chicago Bears. In 2019, Wilson passed away due to complications from his Type 1 Diabetes.
9. Which Pokémon, the first 'electric-type' created, has a name that combines (in Japanese) the sound an electric spark makes and the sound a mouse makes?

Answer: Pikachu

The name 'Pikachu' is derived from the sound an electric spark makes (pika) and the sound a mouse makes (chu). Pikachu was one of the Generation I set of Pokémon games (Pokémon Red, Green, Blue and special edition Yellow), which debuted in Japan in 1996.

According to Bulbapedia (the Pokémon encyclopedia), "Pikachu is a short, chubby rodent Pokémon. It is covered in yellow fur with two horizontal brown stripes on its back. It has a small mouth, long, pointed ears with black tips, and brown eyes. Each cheek is a red circle that contains a pouch for electricity storage. It has short forearms with five fingers on each paw, and its feet each have three toes. At the base of its lightning bolt-shaped tail is a patch of brown fur. A female will have a V-shaped notch at the end of its tail, which looks like the top of a heart. It is classified as a quadruped, but it has been known to stand and walk on its hind legs."
10. And finally, what is the name of the Canadian actor that is the common bond that ties together the answers to the first nine questions?

Answer: Ryan Reynolds

Qn 1 - Ryan was born in Vancouver, BC on October 23rd, 1976.
