Today’s 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?

    I just read the link to Hitlers mixed feelings….. Reads as though the Japanese had already drawn up their own province’s/prefecture’s as though it was a foregone conclusion.

    Lesson: don’t count your chickens before they hatch.

      I’ve visited a couple of camps the Germans set up in Poland/Austria and they are very well built, permanent structures. Yep they certainly expected to win alright.
