Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. STOP! - Okay; quite literally it's a stop sign. What country are you likely to be visiting if the stop signs say 'ALTO'?

Answer: Mexico

'Alto' is the Spanish word for 'Stop' (though it's also the Spanish word for 'tall', so you may not wish to confuse the two when you're driving and you come to an intersection). The great thing about the stop sign is that many of them don't change in appearance around the world; more often than not, they're red and octagonal, so it's universal, even if you don't necessarily understand the language on the sign (though I suppose they have dictionaries for that...but don't read and drive!) In Spanish-speaking countries like Mexico, Spain, and Ecuador, 'ALTO' is on the signs.

In Russia, Cyrillic is used (along the lines of 'CTON'); Germany uses 'HALT'; France (and Quebec) uses 'ARRET'.
2. LOOK! - You're going to have to stop this time around but it also looks like something needs to be just 'right'. In which fairy tale does one encounter a bed that's 'just right'?

Answer: Goldilocks and the Three Bears

In the 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' fairy tale, a little girl comes across a house in the woods which seems unoccupied though it's fairly clear that a papa bear, mama bear, and baby bear live inside. The naive girl that she is, she waltzes on in and eats some porridge which is 'just right', sits in a chair which seems 'just right', and dozes off in a 'just right' bed-- of course all of these are the baby bear's belongings and no one questions why they left out perfectly good porridge at different times. Regardless, in the end of the original tale by Robert Southey, Goldilocks gets away when the bears return home and discover her in the bed.

Some darker versions of the tale are a bit more graphic. Suffice to say the girl doesn't get away.
3. LISTEN! - There's clearly a problem here. You thought you'd be close to Paris, France (as indicated on the sign) but instead you're at a spot with no outlet somewhere in the Western United States. If you were to listen for a song by a French-born artist to indicate that you were getting closer to the 'City of Lights', which of these would you listen for?

Answer: 'La vie en rose' by Edith Piaf

"La vie en rose" is very much associated with France because of Edith Piaf, one of the country's most popular singers who originally released the single in 1946. Since this release, many female artists have had their turn with it in French and English including Celine Dion, Liza Minnelli, and Diana Krall.

Speaking of Celine Dion, "Pour que tu m'aimes encore" is a French language song from her 1995 album, "D'eux". Dion, however, is French Canadian and not from France at all. The title of this song, in English, is "So That You Love Me Again".

"La Isla Bonita" isn't correct. Appearing on her "True Blue" album in 1985, this Madonna song has a Spanish title. Madonna's also from Michigan. Likewise, Gloria Estefan isn't from France; she's from Havana, Cuba and she performs Latin-based music. "Con Los Anos Que Me Quedan" was released in 1993 on her "Mi Tierra" album.
4. STOP! - It's clearly a stop sign (look at the colour...and the edges) but what language is it in?

Answer: Thai

Indeed-- you're likely to find this sign at intersections in Phuket, Bangkok, and Chiang Mai, and like everywhere else in the world they suggest that you should come to an immediate halt in your vehicle. The English pronunciation of this word on the sign is 'yot' or 'yud', so if you're barreling down the streets of Ratchaburi and your taxi driver won't stop this may help.
Like England and Australia, you'll be driving on the left side of the road in Thailand; stop signs will be found on the left side.
5. LOOK! - Grand Central Terminal is up there! In what borough of New York City can one reach this landmark?

Answer: Manhattan

Grand Central Terminal, also known as Grand Central Station, is found at Park and 42nd. One of the largest train terminus locations in the world, it's been a fixture amongst New York's major landmarks since its opening in 1871 (and its rebuilding in the 1910s). Grand Central Terminal has been restored several times (once by Donald Trump) to preserve its historical significance; it's on the U.S. National Historic Landmark register. Countless travelers pass through the station's several concourses and along its tracks in a single day. If you've never been there, you've likely seen it in movies like "Men in Black" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".
6. LISTEN! - Based on the stop sign depicted, whose music should you be listening for?

Answer: MC Hammer

MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This" was a pretty important song in 1989. One of the most popular hip-hop earworms of the decade, it paved the way for Hammertime and parachute pants everywhere. It won two Grammies and reached the top of the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart in the U.S. On the flipside, the song has also been on a number of 'worst of...' lists due to its being dated and overplayed. Hands down, "U Can't Touch This" was MC Hammer's (Stanley Kirk Burrell's) signature number.

It appeared on the "Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em" album-- his third disc release.
7. STOP! LOOK! - Can't you see that in the distance? Which of these power solutions is commonly regarded as the least harmful to the environment?

Answer: Wind Power

In an age so dedicated to sustainable, renewable, greener energy, the environmental impact of power plants is an important topic. While coal and oil (as well as petroleum and other fossil fuels) are non-renewable (at least not for a very, very long time) and nuclear power is dangerous, costly, and wasteful, there are safer alternatives including wind power, solar power, and tidal power. As long as we have air, sun, and tides, we'll be good to harvest energy without causing harm to the environment around us (with smog, chemicals, and the like).

And on top of that, we can save our non-renewable resources for the manufacturing and distribution of stop signs. Hooray!
8. STOP! LISTEN! - Well, more than one sign is redundant. Regardless, what sound, also a common name for a train (at least to young children), should we be listening for?

Answer: Choo-choo

A choo-choo train makes its noise when the whistle is blown from the front car of a locomotive. This characteristic sound is often used by parents and young children to describe a train; it's become a synonymous term. In fact, in 1941 the Glenn Miller Orchestra created a number called the "Chattanooga Choo Choo". Chattanooga actually contains the famous train as a tourist attraction. Likewise, if you're more the literary type you'll find a train named Charlie Choo-Choo in Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series.
9. LOOK! LISTEN! - You look over the railing and hear the calling of roosting birds. What bird isn't typically found in coastal regions?

Answer: Golden-headed Quetzal

The quetzal is not typically a water bird; you can find several different species of this unique creature in northwestern countries of South America reaching into the Amazon Rainforest and the Andes Mountains.

Puffins are stubby, little birds with colourful beaks found roosting along the northern coasts of the Atlantic and Pacific. They can be seen in British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Iceland, the UK, and other locales.
Pelicans of most types hang around the ocean because it's their main food source. Using their deep beaks, they catch food by flying close to the water and dipping their heads low to catch fish. Pelicans can be found in all sorts of coastal locations from Australia to the Caribbean to warmer areas of Canada and Asia.
The wandering albatross is the bird with the single-largest wingspan in the world and while it does remain close to the water, said water is in the South Atlantic and Antarctic Oceans close to the tip of South America.
10. STOP! LOOK! LISTEN! - Wow! Several clues all at once! Two song titles are displayed, but which band fits the image?

Answer: Spice Girls

The Spice Girls started their career as 'girl power-infused', British girl group members in 1994 and hit it big with their first CD, "Spice", in 1996. By the end of the millennium and into the beginning of the next, they were one of the most popular groups ever to come out of Britain though they split up shortly after a third CD. "Stop" was one of their major hits from their second album, "Spice World", and it reached number two on the UK Singles Chart (one of their few songs not to top it). "Goodbye" was the first single from their third and final full album together.

It was partially written in response to member 'Ginger Spice', Geri Halliwell's departure.
