Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In 1727, pennies featured what motto?

Answer: 'Mind your own business!'

During the early 18th century, pennies in Great Britain were inscribed with various mottos, including "God Save the King" and "We are not copper but brass." However, in 1727, a new motto was introduced on the penny that read "Mind your own business!" This motto was meant to discourage people from melting down the coins for their copper content, as well as to remind individuals to focus on their own affairs rather than meddling in the affairs of others.

The motto remained on British pennies until 1860.
2. How long is the average giraffe's tongue?

Answer: 2 feet

Giraffes are known for their long necks, but their tongues are just as impressive. The average giraffe's tongue can reach up to 2 feet in length, allowing them to easily grasp leaves and twigs from tall trees. Their tongues are also prehensile, meaning they can wrap around objects and pull them into their mouths. Additionally, giraffe tongues are tough and covered in thick saliva, which protects them from thorns and other sharp objects while they feed.
3. Elephants can't stand on their heads. True or false?

Answer: False

Contrary to popular belief, elephants are actually capable of standing on their heads. In fact, they are one of the few animals that can do so due to their unique anatomy. Elephants have a large and heavy skull, which is supported by strong neck muscles and a thick layer of connective tissue.

This allows them to balance on their heads for short periods of time, although it is not a natural or comfortable position for them to be in. So, the answer to the question is False.
4. How many miles does the average elevator travel in a year?

Answer: 10,000

Elevators are an essential part of modern life, transporting people and goods up and down buildings every day. The average elevator travels about 10,000 miles per year, which is equivalent to traveling almost halfway around the world! Elevators have come a long way since their invention in the mid-19th century, with modern elevators using advanced technology to improve safety, efficiency, and comfort.

Despite their ubiquity, elevators are still a fascinating piece of engineering that many people take for granted.
5. Thomas Edison was afraid of the dark. True or false?

Answer: True

Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb, was indeed afraid of the dark. This phobia is known as nyctophobia and is a common fear among many people. Despite his fear, Edison was able to overcome it and become one of the most successful inventors in history.

He once said, "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." This determination and perseverance led to his many inventions, including the phonograph, motion picture camera, and of course, the light bulb.
6. Charles Osbourne had the hiccups for how many years, a world record?

Answer: 69 years

For 69 years, Charles Osbourne had the hiccups, earning him a spot in the Guinness World Records for the longest bout of hiccups. His hiccups started in 1922 while weighing a hog for slaughter and continued until 1990, a year before his death. Despite trying various remedies, including drinking a mixture of sugar and water, Osbourne was never able to find a cure for his persistent hiccups.
7. Which president was said to be so overweight, he used to get stuck in the White House bathtub?

Answer: W. H. Taft

William Howard Taft was the 27th President of the United States and famously known for his large size. He weighed over 300 pounds and had a custom-made bathtub installed in the White House to accommodate his size. Despite his weight, Taft was an avid sportsman and enjoyed playing golf and tennis.
8. Cockroaches flatulate every how many minutes?

Answer: 15 minutes

Cockroaches are known for their resilience and adaptability, but did you know they also have a unique way of releasing gas? The answer to the question is that cockroaches flatulate every 15 minutes. This may seem like a lot, but it's actually a necessary part of their digestive process. Cockroaches have a series of microbial symbionts in their gut that help break down the tough cellulose in their diet.

As a byproduct of this process, they produce methane gas, which they release through their anus every 15 minutes.

While this may not be the most pleasant fact, it's certainly fascinating to learn about the intricacies of cockroach digestion.
9. What water temperature do goldfish remember the best in?

Answer: cold

Goldfish have a remarkable memory and can remember things for up to three months. They can also remember the water temperature they were in, which is why it's important to keep their water at a consistent temperature. Studies have shown that goldfish remember colder water temperatures better than warmer ones, which is why it's recommended to keep their water between 65-68F (18-20C).

This helps them maintain their health and overall well-being.
10. Finally... when do ants stretch?

Answer: when they wake up

Ants are known for their incredible strength and work ethic, but did you know that they also stretch? When ants wake up from their sleep, they stretch their legs and antennae to prepare for the day ahead. This stretching helps to increase blood flow and flexibility, allowing them to move more efficiently. Ants are truly fascinating creatures with many unique behaviors and adaptations that allow them to thrive in their environments.
