ARCHIVED TRIVIA

"365 AMAZING TRIVIA FACTS FOR 2009"

Source: Page-A-Day / Workman Publishing

Every Tuesday is a Trivia Tuesday on AmericaJR.com!!

THIS WEEK'S QUESTIONS

1. Who brought the first bathtub into the U.S.?

2. Who is the only person to be nominated for an Oscar, Grammy, Golden Globe, and Nobel Prize for Peace?

3. What basketball legend once negotiated to box Mihammad Ali--but backed out minutes before the scheduled contract-signing ceremony?

4. What inspired George O. Squier to call his prepackaged "elevator music" transmission system Muzak?

5. Which U.S. president had a basketball half-court installed on the South Lawn of the White House?

THIS WEEK'S ANSWERS

1. Benjamin Franklin, in 1790. It was a "slipper bath"--shaped like a shoe, with a heating device in the heel and a drain in the toe.

2. Bono, lead singer of U2. Of the four honors, to date he's won only the Grammy. The Nobel Prize nomination, in 2003, was for his efforts to relieve Third World debt and promote AIDS awareness in Africa.

3. Wilt "the Stilt" Chamberlain. He had agreed to make his pro boxing debut against Ali in 1971 for $500,000 or 25 percent of the gross proceeds, but bowed out when he couldn't get a tax-free guarantee of $500,000.

4. The catchiness and success of the made-up name Kodak. Squier had originally called his company Wired Radio.

5. George H.W. Bush, in 1989.
