It doesn't pay to be a Gentile at trivia night

Thursday trivia was no fun - we didn't miss anything that made an interesting trivia question, and the final was another "guess a number and we'll tell you if you're close" question - so you get Saturday trivia, which I continue to insist is better anyway. There is a significant probability that there will not be trivia this week, in which case, I'll just make something up.

1. In which EU nation is the primary National Language spoken fluently by less than 10% of the population?
2. What is the only stadium to host consecutive Super Bowls?
3. Street lingo: What is "Adam's Ale?"
4. What are the capitals of a) Somalia b) Australia?
5. A Jewish boy has his Bar Mitzvah at 13. At what age does a girl have her Bat Mitzvah?
6. In the iconic photo, how many soldiers are raising the American flag at Iwo Jima?
7. What African nation is home to the militia known as the Janjaweed?

I'll guess Belgium for #1 and don't have anything for the others. I'll look forward to next week and maybe I can put together an audio trivia quiz.

1. Ireland, which surprised me, because everyone I know from Ireland can speak Gaelic. Admittedly, that's only about ten people, but still.
2. The Orange Bowl
3. Water
4. a) Mogadishu b) Canberra
5. 12, although several people insisted for the rest of the night that it was also 13. I only know one M.O.T. in Clemson, and I haven't asked him yet.
6. 6
7. The Sudan
