Today’s Trivia

lady-gaga-short-haircut-mainWelcome 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?

Genghis Khan exempted the poor and clergy from taxes, encouraged literacy, and established free religion, leading many peoples to join his empire before they were even conquered. (source)  


Hallucinatory ‘voices’ shaped by local culture. In the U.S.A., voices are harsh and threatening while those heard by schizophrenics in Africa and India tend to be more benign and playful. (source)


Urine from the Maned wolf smells like marijuana and one day had police searching for pot smokers at a Dutch zoo. The officers were really just smelling wolf urine. (source)


More of a tip than trivia: the Internet Archive offers a huge collection of classic MS-DOS games, which can all be played directly in the browser. (source)


The fizzy sensation on your tongue from carbonated drinks is not caused by the tiny bubbles popping; the fizz is our actual taste of carbon dioxide. (source)

    Lady Gaga was addicted to marijuana, smoking up to 15 joints a day following a hip operation. Must have reeked of it. Link to 3.

    Not playing the game here.. but Genghis Khan seems like an exemplar for Muhammad in that the latter’s success was likely due to his lifting the load of taxation from the Roman Empire off the general population that committed to Islam.

    Back then the Romans were taxing to protect their empire, today Western nations are taxing to protect themselves from socialism but both lead to ruin.. especially when there is an external and an internal threat like Islam.
