Back To School

School is back in session, and with it, new trivia. We only missed three this week, but missing three questions was enough to keep us out of the money. Especially galling was the fact that we probably would have gotten the first question if we had heard it correctly - it wasn't a question about the Pharaohs.

1. In what ancient Egyptian city did the Pharos reside?
2. What is the average lifespan of a human red blood cell?
3. Which automaker purchased Land Rover (at the time, the last major British-owned car company) in 1994?

1. The Pharos is also known as the Lighthouse of Alexandria. It is named for the island where it was built.
2. Four months!
3. BMW

No trivia this week, as I will be visiting a U.S. Protectorate.

OOO I actually knew numbers 1 and 3... I knew all that History channel watching would pay off eventually!
