Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. (_____) Dollar Question

Answer: 64,000

The term "64,000 dollar question" is an idiom stemming from a 1950s era game show of the same name where contestants vied to answer questions correctly to win money.
If you should hear a question being answered with "That's the $64,000 question", the response means it is difficult to answer about a problem or situation at that particular point in time. Another way of answering could be: "Who knows?" or "Your guess is as good as mine!"
2. (_____) Small Step for Man

Answer: 1

USA Astronaut Neil Armstrong, on the 1969 Apollo 11 Mission, was the first man to walk on the moon. The quote is often used when someone is being ribbed for making a small unexpected accomplishment.
When Armstrong took the first, yet small step, just about every television was turned on to watch this monumental moment in history. Viewers watching on Earth heard, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
Once back on Earth, Armstrong corrected what the public and media thought was said and preserved history with this correction. The statement was actually, "That's one small step for a man..." (the audio wasn't the best between Earth and its moon). Neil attempted a larger step and was surprised how small it was. "It's just that people didn't hear [the 'a']."
Neil Armstrong died at the age of 82 on Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012. What a legacy!
3. (_____) Continents of the World

Answer: 7

Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, South America
Did you feel like you're back in 3rd-grade geography? You'd be surprised how many adults can get stuck reciting the seven continents.
India, Russia, and China are frequently and incorrectly cited as continents because of their large land mass. . . and thus throwing Mother Earth out of kilter.
4. (_____) Days of Lent

Answer: 40

In Christianity, Lent is the 40 days before Easter and is a time for reflection and preparation. Christians replicate the 40 days Jesus sacrificed and withdrew into the desert. Some Christians will do hard fasting throughout, or giving up specific foods for the 40 days, or fast just once a week.

Some families serve soup and bread for dinner and the money not spent on a full meal is then given to a charity. Others choose to give up luxuries as penance and/or choose spiritual reading, such as special Lent devotions, to be more connected to God.

The most important thing is that each Christian feel atoned and reconciled with God for the gift and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. (Many theories exist on how one should atone and reconcile)
5. (_____) Sheets in a Ream of Paper

Answer: 500

Offices purchase copy paper in reams and many homes do as well. Reams are sold in sizes 8 1/2 X 11 inches (letter size) and 8 1/2 X 14 inches (legal size). Custom size paper in reams can be special ordered.
A quire is when you buy 25 sheets of the same size and style; for instance, Christmas letterhead or neon yellow paper for hand-outs.
6. Unlucky (_____)

Answer: 13

The number 13 is considered unlucky to some Christians in relationship to The Last Supper. The 13th guest to arrive is the one who betrayed Jesus Christ.
Another disruption with 13 at a dinner party was the trickster Norse god Loki's arrival disrupting the balance of the 12 gods in attendance.
Financial losses can be contributed to the number 13. Western and some Eastern cultures will not travel, marry, or work on this phobia-filled day. The phobia has been taken as far as avoiding Gate 13 at airports and Room 13 at hotels.
Baker's dozen includes a count of 13 and I've always enjoyed the extra donut-hole!
7. A picture paints a (_____) words

Answer: 1000

In 1971, the musical band Bread released the song ballad "If", using the following lyrics:
"If a picture paints a thousand words,
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show the you I've come to know."
December 1921, Frederick R. Barnard, stated in Printer's Ink, (paraphrasing) "Graphics can tell a story as effectively as a thousand words." (A man of my own artistic heart)
"A picture is worth a thousand words" is an English idiom that is very similar in meaning.
8. (_____) Years in a Silver Anniversary

Answer: 25

The silver anniversary is celebrated with gifts made from silver.
No one knows for certain how the idea developed to assign specific gifts to anniversary celebrations. It is thought to go back as far as the middle ages - a silver wreath was placed on the head of the wife by the husband on their 25th anniversary, a gold wreath for their 50th. Another theory is it manifested during the 19th Century Victorian period in Great Britain, but why? The anniversary gift list was used in North America and was expanded upon in the 20th Century. I venture to say retailers were behind this GOLDEN opportunity, no pun intended!
Today you will find the anniversary gift assignments vary on both sides of the pond.

9. (_____) Piano Keys

Answer: 88

Most modern pianos have a row of 88 black and white keys, 52 white keys for the notes of the C major scale (C, D, E, F, G, A and B) and 36 shorter black keys, which are raised above the white keys, and set further back on the keyboard. This means that the piano can play 88 different pitches.
The same notes of A, B, C, D, E, F, and G repeat themselves, so it's relatively easy to memorize.
Memorizing 88 different notes sounds daunting.
10. (_____) Sunset Strip

Answer: 77

"77 Sunset Strip" was a US television series that ran from 1958 to 1964 starring Efrem Zimbalist Jr (father of actress Stephanie Zimbalist), along with Edd Byrnes and Roger Smith. The number 77 was the address of the show's private detective office.
The Sunset Strip is located in Los Angeles, California, and is about 1-1/2 miles long in West Hollywood providing restaurants, shopping, and nightclubs. It's also known for its fun and colorful billboards which add character to this specific extension of Sunset Boulevard.
