The Encyclopedia,

Social Media, 

& Me!!



It's challenge day eight! Can I manage to post twenty-six times in April? Can YOU answer the questions I ripped  gathered from my handy dandy, old-school, flip through paper pages encyclopedia?

Get them all right and you could win the boobie prize!

                                What the H
Could It Be?


1. What is the ancient wall that runs between the River Tyne and Solway Firth?

2. What is Bruce Banner's alter ego created by a failed gamma radiation experiment?

3. What English king left us with this legacy: divorced- beheaded- died- divorced- beheaded- survived...his six sorry wives?

4. Who was the first man to make it to the peak of Mt. Everest?

5. Who is the mother of Ishmael, the ancestor of Muhammad?

Bonus: Who performed the Twelve Labors to repent for killing his six sons? (hint- In Greek lore, he's not your average character, he is the offspring of Zeus and Alcmene)

(1. Hadrian's Wall; 2. the Hulk; 3. Henry VIII; 4. Sir Edmund Hillary...though to be fair, his Napalese guide, Tenzing Norgay, was right beside him, so he gets the credit too...Go Tenzing!; 5. Hagar; Bonus: Hercules)

  2. I'm getting better! 5 out of 6 all in. Only tripped up on Hagar - I'll always think of that name as belonging to a horrible Viking!

  6. Uh, I think I already won the boobie prize...LOL.

    I can't believe it's only day eight. Seems like much longer. Here's hoping we can all make it through to the end.

    1. I totally took the easy route. Scouring the books for trivia is way easier than the excellent creations others are coming up with!

  7. I've always been fascinated by Hillary. I've climbed a few mountains, none above the 14,000 mark though. I can't imagine making that kind of trek, or wanting to.
