7. As we are getting nearer to the end of this trivia... here is a trick question. My uncle, Christopher F Shores, went on to become a world famous author because his one true wish as a young man, to be in the RAF, was thwarted. He was fit and passed all the tests but one thing meant he was not fit to be a pilot.... What do you think it was? Winner will get 25 points Carmen

Blue Angels F/A-18 Supersonic Jet crossing the Golden Gate Bridge

The Blue Angels is the United States Navy's flight demonstration squadron which was initially formed in 1946, making it the second oldest formal aerobatic team (under the same name) in the world, after the French Patrouille de France formed in 1931. The Blue Angels' McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornets (numbered 1–6) are currently flown by five Navy demonstration pilots and one Marine Corps demonstration pilot. The Blue Angels typically perform aerial displays annually in at least 60 shows at 30 locations throughout the United States and 2 shows at one location in Canada. The "Blues" still employ many of the same practices and techniques used in the inaugural 1946 season. An estimated 11 million spectators view the squadron during air shows from March through November each year. Members of the Blue Angels team also visit more than 50,000 people in schools, hospitals, and community functions at air show cities. Since 1946, the Blue Angels have flown for more than 505 million spectators. The mission of the United States Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron is "to showcase the pride and professionalism of the United States Navy and Marine Corps by inspiring a culture of excellence and service to country through flight demonstrations and community outreach." -wikipedia

#5 It must have to do a bit with the reason why, in medieval days, wine was preferred over water in germany - because it was more clean and pure. Water could have been polluted and made ém sick.

Anyone can try #7 and answer others also

 

Carmen Hathaway

Do you mean we can answer a second question? Wasn't sure if we can, Abbie.


#7 ...I'd like to answer that too :)

I answered question #2 earlier, which you've marked correct.



 

Abbie Shores

Yes... All trick questions can be guessed by anyone, even previous answerers.

You can also second guess after someone else had had a go

Your uncle was colour blind. That is why he could not become a pilot in the RAF.

Knew that hours ago. Just into some work & time got away -- wasn't sure about answering a second question.
Into a bit of R & R now -- so, opportune to pop back in to see what's what lol

Trick answer pops up right away when you do a forum search. We bought a new house so I have been extra busy and not checking the threads very often...quick extra 50 points in a matter of hours for Carmen though.

Well I’ve tried repeatedly for over two and a half hours to post my answers but for some reason it just bounced to the sales advert page!!
Too late for any points but trying again as a test!

NO MO

Mo contacted me with an answer but couldn't post it. As she contacted me before the response in the forum I'm giving her points also

Question 3 - 26 US Presidents have served in the military

 

Lindley Johnson

#3 I said 29 and saw a list, I also see 26, I'm not sure why there's a difference in different sources. The internet is a strange thing sometimes.

 

Abbie Shores

neither of these are correct according to the forces site I looked at

 

Mo Barton

#3. 30 US Presidents in military

 

Lindley Johnson

Okay, I see another source for #3 that has a different number. This seems like a pretty straightforward question, I'm not sure why I've now seen three different answers! This has been a fun activity, though, and a good learning experience, too!
