Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which of the following is a 100-year-old person known as?

Answer: Centenarian

The word means "longevity". In the year 2005, it was recorded there were well over 50,000 people in the United States who had reached their 100th birthday.

Some famous persons to live to be 100 include actor George Burns, comedian Bob Hope and "Our Gang" creator Hal Roach.
2. "Billboard" magazine has compiled a list of popular songs for a chart listing entitled "The Billboard Hot 100". Of these four, which song spent the most weeks on said chart?

Answer: "How Do I Live" by LeAnn Rimes

"How Do I Live" spent 69 weeks on the Hot 100. The song was released in 1997 by country singer LeAnn Rimes. However, the song never reached the numer one position. It peaked at number two.

Singer Trisha Yearwood recorded a version of this song the same year and won a Grammy Award in the Best Female Country Vocal Performance category. Her version of the song was on the Hot 100 for a mere twelve weeks. Coincidentally, Rimes' version outsold Yearwood's by three million copies.

Although "Billboard" magazine was founded in 1894, it didn't start the Hot 100 list until 1958. The first song to appear in the number one position was Ricky Nelson's "Poor Little Fool".
3. The board game Scrabble includes 100 playing tiles. How many single points is the letter "X" worth?

Answer: Eight

If a player were to use the "X" tile during this popular spelling game, he or she would receive eight points. However, the board game included spaces where the points could be doubled or tripled. Only one "X" tile was included when the game was first made available in 1948.

The game was actually created ten years earlier by Alfred Butts but he failed to find a manufacturer for distribution. In 1948, he sold the rights to a lawyer named Jim Brunot. Butts did receive royalties from sales of the game.
4. In 2006, Eva Longoria held the number one position in "Maxim" magazine's "Hot 100". Who occupied the number one hundred spot?

Answer: Natasha Bedingfield

Singer Natasha Bedingfield was born in Sussex, England in 1981. Her debut album called "Unwritten" was released in 2004. The title track reached number five in the U.S. the following year.

Eva Longoria placed first on the "Hot 100" in 2005 and 2006. She was the first female celebrity to hold the top position two years in a row. Longoria appeared on the television show "Desperate Housewives".

"Maxim" magazine featured a list of the 100 most popular female celebrities once a year.
5. Which of the following basketball players scored 100 points during a single game?

Answer: Wilt Chamberlain

Chamberlain scored 100 points during one game in 1962 when he played for the Warriors. The team beat the Knicks with a final score of 169 to 147 in early 1962.

Wilt Chamberlain also played for other NBA teams such as the Lakers and 76ers. He passed away from a heart attack in 1999. Chamberlain was 63 years old.
6. In the 100th episode of "The Simpsons" Bart was desperate to find something to take to school for Show and Tell and decided to take his dog at the last second. Which fiasco followed as a result?

Answer: Principal Skinner was fired

Bart took his dog to school for Show and Tell and the dog got into the school's air vents. Groundskeeper Willie went to retrieve the dog and fell from the ceiling and landed on Superintendant Chalmers. Skinner was fired and replaced by Ned Flanders. Bart's dog was named Santa's Little Helper.

"The Simpsons" made its debut in 1989. The first episode included Bart getting a tattoo and Homer taking a job as a department store Santa Claus.
7. Which building is found on the back of a U.S. one hundred dollar bill?

Answer: Independence Hall

Independence Hall is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was the longtime residence of Benjamin Franklin. However, he was born in Boston, Massachusetts. His likeness could be seen on the front of the $100 bill.

Independence Hall was originally known as the Pennsylvania State House. It was built between the years 1732 and 1753. The Liberty Bell once occupied the building's bell tower.
8. Sonic Youth recorded a song called "100%". On which of these albums was the song included?

Answer: Dirty

"Dirty" was released in 1992. In addition to the opening track called "100%", the album also included songs such as "Sugar Kane" and "Orange Rolls, Angel's Spit".

Sonic Youth were formed in New York City around 1981. As of the year 2006, the band have recorded for 11 different record labels.
9. The 100th issue of "The Amazing Spider-Man" was dated September of 1971. Which of these events took place in the storyline?

Answer: Spider-Man sprouted four extra arms

Peter Parker was working on a serum to rid him of his spider powers so he could be a normal person and marry his girlfriend Gwen Stacey. Unfortunately, things went wrong and four extra limbs grew from his upper torso. The following issue featured the debut of Morbius, The Living Vampire.

Spider-Man first appeared in the last issue of "Amazing Fantasy"in 1962 but the character was so popular his own comic debuted the following year. Spider-Man was created by Stan Lee. By the way, the original price for this issue was 15 cents.
10. Yaqui Joe stole money to pay for guns to give to his tribe in the 1969 movie "100 Rifles" so his people could defend themselves against the Mexican government in a battle which took place in 1912. How much money did he steal?

Answer: $6,000

In my opinion, $6,000 seemed like a lot of money considering it was 1912. But there's always a chance it wasn't spent entirely on 100 rifles.

Burt Reynolds starred as Indian Yaqui Joe. Jim Brown played Lyedecker, the lawman who went searching for Yaqui. The film also featured the lovely Raquel Welch in the role of Sarita.
