it's Trivia Time

Okay, this is not a meme, I don't care if the rest of you do this.

But I figure these questions are still pretty cool, even if they are now considered the domain of Honors-Level High School Students:

  1. Who was the only person to hit a golf ball on the moon?

  2. Who created the COBOL programming language?

  3. Who was the first woman in space?

  4. What vehicle gets the worst and best fuel mileage?

  5. Which two space probes were the first man made objects to leave the solar system?

  6. Which U.S. President was also a chief justice of the Supreme Court?

  7. Which U.S. Supreme court decision, later overturned, cleared the way for segregation in this country?

  8. Which U.S. Supreme court decision gave us the right to a free lawyer if we cannot afford one of our own?

  9. Who was the primary creator of "Dungeons and Dragons"?

  10. What is the name for a boomerang that doesn't return to the thrower?

Note...I was asked all of these in 7th grade.
