Daily Trivia

Welcome to Daily Trivia. There is a game to play here. The photo above relates to one of the items below. The first reader to correctly tell us in the comments what item the photo belongs to, and why, gets bragging rights. Sometimes they are obvious, other times the obvious answer is the decoy. Can you figure it out tonight?

ISIS are pussies: During the reign of the Khmer Rouge, there was a prison camp, named S-21, that had a death rate of 99.96%. S-21 was directed by a former math teacher who ordered “living autopsies,” had prisoners’ blood completely drained for use in hospitals, and used a “baby-smashing tree” to kill children.

The shame of a mother’s name

Mentioning your mother’s name in public is associated with shame for men in Egypt and in many countries in the Middle East? Over time, her name becomes forgotten and she’s only referred to as ‘The mother of her eldest son’.

Why it is ill-conceived to for Obama to deal with Iran

The Obama administration is bending over backwards to assist Iran.

It is madness, especially when senior officials in Iran hold the view that the total annihilation of Israel is a non-negotiable point.

And it isn’t just a nobody either, Mohammad Reza Naqdi is the chief of the Basji Militia of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards and it is his declaration that “erasing Israel off the map” is “nonnegotiable.”

He also threatened Saudi Arabia for its campaign against the Iran-backed rebels in Yemen. The Saudis for their part have warned Naqdi, would share the “fate of Saddam Hussein.”

The commander of the Basij militia of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said that “erasing Israel off the map” is “nonnegotiable,” according to an Israel Radio report Tuesday.
