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:
- In what game might players “diddle for the middle”?
- On ships, what terms are used instead of “left” and “right”?
- Of the five Great Lakes, only one is located entirely within the United States. Which one?
- What makes Burmese sneezing monkeys sneeze?
- 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:
- 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.
- Port and starboard. Since left and right can change depending on orientation, mariners use these terms to avoid confusion.
- Lake Michigan. The other lakes are partially within Canada as well.
- Pope Francis. He held that job during his student days in Buenos Aires.
