2.How long did the Hundred Years War last?

3.Who is the Heisman Trophy's only two-time winner?

4. What is the longest movie ever made?

5.When was the world's first postage stamp issued and what was it called?

6.When Burger King opened its first branch in 1954, how much did a hamburger cost?

7. What is the longest word in the English language that can be typed with the right hand only?

8.Which US state was the first to ban slavery?

9.In a non-leap year, what date falls in the exact middle of the year?

10. What's special about January 4?

Ok - here's the answer to question 10 - National Trivia Day is celebrated on January 4 in the United States. The origins of the holiday are unknown. Many observe the holiday by playing Trivial Pursuit or other games of knowledge and/or by sending an email or making a phone call to impart a quick little-known fact to friends and family.

Happy Birthday!

Ok, I needed to know, and Googled the answer, so I know what it is. But I won't say because others need a chance. Fair is fair.

#7 ANY word can be typed with the right hand only; it's just harder to do (I often do it when my cat is sleeping on my left shoulder). So the question boils down to what is the longest word in English and that is debatable. It used to be "antidisestablishmentarianism" but now there are tons of medical and scientific compound words that are longer. I think the longest changes every day. -ken

I think the question refers to touch-typing right hand positioning. With that method, the right hand only touches certain keys, and the question makes more sense.

Is #9 July 2nd?
Bernie

Bernie - you're right, July 2nd - (not the 12 Don)
July 2 is the 183rd day of the year (184th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 182 days remaining until the end of the year.

It is the exact midpoint of all years. This occurs at 12:00 PM during common years and at 12:00 AM during leap years. This is because there are 182 days before and 182 days after(median of the year) in common years, and 183 before and 183 after in leap years. It falls on the same day of the week as New Year's Day (in common years).

BMWguynw - you're correct - I'll give you a hint about the answer, it's an 11-letter word that begins with "H" and refers to portions of some bodies of water where there is insufficient light for photosynthesis to occur.

#6 Think a Burger King was 18 cents. And I think a Mac was 12 cents.

Hop,

You got it! Burger King was 18 cents back then. Don't remember about the Big Mac but I probably would have guessed 15 cents.

I don't think they had Big Macs back then, they were little Macs (lol) and they taste like rubber. Think at first they were 12 cents then went up to 15 cents.
