Chicago World’s Fair and the Ferris wheel were 1893 not 1931.

Question 5, about the debut of the Ferris Wheel… It was in Chicago, but not in 1931. You only missed it by 38 years. If that’s close enough, then I’m either 29, or 105, or somewhere in-between. It was in 1893.

I got 11 of 14, and for the first time, ever, I did better than hubby who got 9 of 14. Of course I read him the questions, when viewing them allows you ease to eliminate the more obvious. Keep ’em coming!

I missed 2, the patents question, and the year of the credit card. Had to chuckle about the one on determining the age of artifacts as “random guessing” or some such thing.

Alexander Bell was a Scottish born Canadian. Maybe he was American in there somewhere….hence I picked Edison.

Please check your trivia facts. The Eisenhower Johnson tunnels in CO are 1.67/1.69 miles long. Ted Williams is 1.6 I believe.

Missed 4 but would have gotten them all if I had gone with my first instinct instead of over-thinking it!

Really enjoyed this quiz. Might explain how some lucky guesses netted 11 out of 14!

I breezed through the first 8, then blew 3 in a row, then got back on track, for 11 out of 14. I can’t help but wonder if A.G Bell received approval for all those patents applied for. I always thought Thomas Edison was the most prolific holder of patents.

11 out of 14…not bad ?

Bell only had a couple dozen patents and was born in Scotland. Edison (2000+ patents) is the correct answer to question 9.

Missed four in the middle, as others noted. Thought dental floss would have been cotton that far south. I enjoy these quizzes.
