Buckaroo Banzai is not the answer to any question

We missed a lot of questions this week, and many of them were good questions. Unfortunately, I misplaced the question list somewhere between the bar and the car, and I can only remember one of our misses. Such is the risk of bar trivia. Happily, it turns out I did back up my extra trivia document after all, so I'll add a couple extras of my own.

1. What Grammy-winning singer made tabloid headlines in 1996 when it was reported (erroneously) that he had asked his wife for a divorce via fax?
2. Who is the only driver to complete the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 on the same day?
3. What dubious achievement did the Philadelphia Phillies accomplish on July 15, 2008, against the St. Louis Cardinals?
4. Which amendment to the Constitution provided for separate election of the President and Vice-President?

1. Phil Collins.
2. Several drivers have attempted the Memorial Day Double, but only Tony Stewart has actually driven all 1100 miles. The start of the 600 was moved up a few years ago, so it is no longer possible to make it from Indianapolis to Charlotte in time to start the race.
3. That game marked the Phillies' 10,000th loss as a franchise.
4. The twelfth amendment, ratified in 1804, ended the policy of the second-place presidential candidate being named Vice-President.
