No way! Way!

Last night I discovered a cool trivia site alled Blufr, which basically gives you a statement and you have to determine whether or not it's true. Get one right, earnpoints. Get it wrong, you lose more points. It's kind of tough to reach 10,000 points unless you have remembered the answers to the often-repeated statements. I finally hit that score this morning.

Because of Blufr, I now know that:
  • Starbucks spends more money on employee health insurance than on coffee beans
  • New York's Central Park is nearly entirely man made
  • Cinderella's slippers were originally made of fur
  • Henry Ford had a test tube that held Thomas Edison's last breath
  • The makers of Trivial Pursuit were sued after they listed the first name of fictional character Columbo as "Philip"
  • Dr. Seuss coined the word "nerd"
  • Isaac Asimov had no idea what day his birthday was
  • The Pentagon has the most floor space of any building in the United States
  • Chewbacca had a son named Lumpy
(There's a head start for you.)

in honor of your trip to Galveston, how about some Texas trivia:

The Flagship Hotel on Seawall Boulevard in Galveston is the only hotel in North America built entirely over the water.

The first word spoken from the moon on July 20, 1969 was "Houston."

El Paso is closer to Needles, California than it is to Dallas.

 

Okay, now it's your turn | Home
