Page-a-Day trivia calendar

Every Tuesday is a Trivia Tuesday on AmericaJR… Look for five new trivia questions and answers from the “365 Amazing Trivia Facts for 2018” calendar.

This Week’s Questions:

  1. In what game might players “diddle for the middle”?
  2. On ships, what terms are used instead of “left” and “right”?
  3. Of the five Great Lakes, only one is located entirely within the United States. Which one?
  4. What makes Burmese sneezing monkeys sneeze?
  5. Before moving on to a very hold job (way before, in fact), what well-known man spent time working as a nightclub bouncer in his native Argentina?

This Week’s Answers:

  1. Darts. The term refers to throwing darts before the start of a sudden-death round (and occasionally the start of a game) to determine the order of play–the player whose dart lands closer to the middle gets to go first.
  2. Port and starboard. Since left and right can change depending on orientation, mariners use these terms to avoid confusion.
  3. Lake Michigan. The other lakes are partially within Canada as well.
  4. Rain.
  5. Pope Francis. He held that job during his student days in Buenos Aires.
