Kentrivia 13

Wherein it must be Tuesday

  1. I guessed Eagles, sounded Canadian enough to me and I couldn't recall an NFL team called the Eskimos. Going with an animal was the right direction, though they decided on a distinctly unCanuck mammal. Well, it's not like they're native to Detroit.
  2. Just a few weeks ago we saw the Georgia Shakespeare's production of Treasure Island. That isn't helping. If ever in Savannah, check out the Pirate's House: it's mentioned in Treasure Island. Can't really recommend the food.
  3. Woo! I got one! Learn more about the element discovered by Martin Heinrich Klaproth, a German chemist, in the mineral pitchblende (primarily a mix of uranium oxides) in 1789.
  4. Not the correct answer, but funny. Also not the answer, but the flags of Monaco and Indonesia are the same, just different sizes. Oh, so if the Indonesian soccer team played in Warsaw, things could get confusing.
  5. Having read Assassination Vacation (recently) and visited Ford's Theater (not so recently), you'd think there'd be some bubble of recognition. You would be wrong.
  6. I went with IBM, forgetting the more obvious company -- and the company I once worked at.
  7. Something about cigars?
