TRIVIA TUESDAY

"365 AMAZING TRIVIA FACTS FOR 2014"

Source: Page-A-Day / Workman Publishing

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

THIS WEEK'S QUESTIONS

1. When it comes to nautical terms, what is the correct, non-abbreviated spelling of fo'c's'le?

2. Who was the favorite classical composer of Charles Schulz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip?

3. Which World War II enemies never signed a formal peace treaty ending the conflict between their two nations?

4. What was the original stage name of rock musician Meat Loaf, according to the animated TV sitcom South Park?

5. What was significant about Martin Luther King Day in the year 2000?

Next week's tease: How many pages long was the royal etiquette guide issued to the 1,900 guests invited to the 2011 wedding of England's Prince William and Kate Middleton? Start thinking about it and we'll give you the answer next Tuesday...

 

THIS WEEK'S ANSWERS

1. Forecastle. (It's the forward upper deck of a sailing ship.)

2. Brahms. But Schulz didn't make him the favorite of toy-piano-playing Schroeder in the comic strip because he thought the name Beethoven sounded and looked funnier.

3. Japan and Russia, because of a dispute over the Kurli ISlands. The 55-island chain was ceded to Russia as part of the 1945 Yalta Agreement, but Japan claims it has a historic right to the four southernmost islands.

4. Couscous. In a Season 2 South Park episode, first aired in 1998, the rocker decides to beef up his name at the suggestion of Chef. (Meat Loaf's birth name is Marvin Lee Aday.)

5. It marked the first time that Martin Luther King Day, which had become a legal federal holiday in 1986, was officially observed in all 50 states.
