To get the juices flowing again — and provide some pure unadulterated entertainment — I have trivia for you! There are 5 categories — NONE of which is Movies… Comment with your guesses and I will post answers by Monday. Enjoy!

Geography: These two cities, located about 30 miles apart, recently combined their metropolitan areas and now total 10,000 square miles, the fourth largest metropolitan area in the country, after NY, LA, and Chicago. Which two cities are these?

Music: This pop-rock music singer and songwriter had his first hit in his own country in 1964, and worldwide hits since the early 70’s. His songs often contained political or social commentary, and he has been called the “first third world superstar.” What is his name?

World Affairs: What country is the world’s largest democracy?

Sports: One was a former Olympic gymnast who won the Gold in the 1984 Olympics, the other a perennial tennis champion. They were the first two women athletes to appear on the box of Wheaties cereal. Who are they?

Potpourri: If you looked at a clock in the mirror and the time on the clock face appeared to read 8:20, what time would it be in reality? (Assume non-digital.)

  4. 1.  I don’t know, but are you sure NY is the largest in land area?  Because I think it’s Las Vegas.  And are we talking only city proper, or suburbs as well?  I’m going to guess Dallas/Ft. Worth, but I think it’s too obvious to be right.

    2.  No guess.

    3.  Are we still talking about land area?  If so, Russia?  Or if Russia’s not a democracy, Canada.  If population, India.  (Are they a democracy?)  I realize I’m making multiple guesses; this is just to be sure that I’m right.  Cheating?  I don’t think so.

    4.  Mary Lou Retton, and I have no idea; I don’t know anything about tennis players

    5.  4:40
