Try your hand at these brain-busting trivia questions. Remember, please, that you may not google or use any reference sources for the first 24 hours of this thread.

-1. What Greek philosopher first used the word “elements” and maintained that there were only four of them: fire, earth, air, and water?
-2. What is the American version of the “Royal Game of India” in which the goal is to get all four colored pawns to the center square?
-3. The Starland Vocal Band had only one hit, but they still got a short-lived TV variety show out of it. Name the song.
-4. The Minnesota Twins were the first professional baseball team to represent an entire state, not a city. What’s the name of their home stadium?
-5. They look a little like pigs, but these plant-eating African mammals are more closely related to whales and porpoises. Their name means “river horse”. What are they?
-6. The American liberal political pundit and spinmeister James Carville is also known by what nickname?
-7. What color are SpongeBob SquarePants’s pants?
8. Which character in Alice in Wonderland was always weeping, and also showed Alice how to dance the Lobster Quadrille?
-9. In its native Southeast Asia, it’s called the “King of Fruits”. In other parts of the world, it’s reviled for its repulsive smell. What is it?
-10. Which Canadian city is nicknamed the City of Gardens?

Great answers! wave
