IV Alternative Tuesday Trivia

Wherein to celebrate yesterday's holiday I infected some indigenous people with deadly diseases


  1. Category is Grammy Album of the year. For the 1980s, how many of the winning albums have I purchased (album, casette, CD, iTunes download all count)? Or just pick a number from 0-10.

  2. Saturday Night Live cast member with a cameo in Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom.

  3. The US Embassy in Stockholm website on US holidays has this note: President Nixon erroneously believed that a Presidential proclamation on the matter carried the same weight as an Executive Order. What holiday are they referring to?

  4. If I use a polegar to catch a ride, where might I be?

  5. In which state was the Coney Island hot dog created?

1) From 1980-89, 3. From 1959-1979, 3. From 1990-2008, 3. I'm guessing you're consistent.

2) There were people in that movie (other than Harrison Ford) besides short round and the woman Spielberg happened to be screwing at the time? Ummmm, Dan Ackroyd.

3) Earth Day (not really a holiday and seems right for the Nixon period for that kind of asshattery)

4) Venice Italy

5) New Jersey

1) Two.

2) Nora Dunn. (I was talking about her just yesterday, so I'm going to say "Nora Dunn" even though it can't be correct.)

3) Arbor Day.

4) Buda. Or maybe Pest.

5) Bliss? No, Hawaii! (VW: howli. Clearly a sign from BLogger to change my answer.)
