Mrvoodoo"I have always wondered if there is a specific answer to 'How much wood can a woodchuck, chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?' though, lol. Is there?"

quicksand profile image

quicksand 7 years ago

Finally I found the method of figuring out the answer to question number 15.

"Lisa Presley, Mickey Rooney and Tuesday Weld are all the same height, how tall are they?"

You get each one of them to stand on top of the head of the other and measure the distance from the bottom to the top. Now multiply the result by Plank's constant, and before ten seconds elapses, divide it by Plank's constant and finally divide the answer by 3. Then you get the height of Lisa Presley.

The next step is to get Mickey Rooney and Tuesday Weld to stand on top of each other and measure the distance from the top to the bottom. From the result you subtract Lisa's height. The result would be Tuesday Weld's height.

The final step would be to get Mickey Rooney's height, all you need to do is multiply Tuesday Weld's height by 3, then add Lisa Presley's height to the answer and divide the whole thing by 4. So, that's the way it has to be done.

The great thing about this method is that you need to use Plank's constant only once!

Phew! That was real hard work! :)

I always enjoyed Trivial Pursuit, AEvans, in fact I think I may still have some of the trivial cards around with all the questions on them. I have a system. I answer the questions I know and ignore the ones I don't know. But you need a trivial question about Bing Crosby. Here's two: What does Bing often have in his mouth, and what is it that he likes to jingle in his pocket?


AEvans profile image

AEvans 7 years ago from SomeWhere Out There Author

William: Those are great questions, let me see if I can try.

1. What does Bing often have in his mouth? A cigar ?

2. What does he like to jingle in his pocket? Change?

I love the old classics but have to say I am honestly not certain. :)


William F. Torpey profile image

William F. Torpey 7 years ago from South Valley Stream, N.Y.

"One of two ain't bad," AEvans. Bing Crosby was commonly seen smoking a pipe. In fact the statue of him at Gonzaga University has him with a pipe in his mouth, but the pranksters steal it so often it's taken in at night to foil them. It's not commonly known, but Bing loved to jingle the coins in his pocket, and one Bing fan reported he could even hear him doing it on one of his more than 2,000 recordings.


AEvans profile image

AEvans 7 years ago from SomeWhere Out There Author

William: I loved Bing Crosby , I believe I was born in the wrong time. lolololo A fan actually reported they could hear him doing it on his recordings? I didn't realize that. Here is an oldie my grandmother gave to me it is on a 45. The song is called " Pistol Packin Mama" by Mae West and Bing Crosby. Have you ever heard of it? Bing was so interesting and I also admired Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Gene Kelly. Oh good grief I am rattling on. lolololo :)

I am so glad that I was taught something new, :)


William F. Torpey profile image

William F. Torpey 7 years ago from South Valley Stream, N.Y.

Bing recorded "Pistol Packin' Mama" with the Andrews Sisters in 1943, AEvans, which I remember well. But I'm not sure if I remember him singing it with Mae West, although I probably did. It must have been taken from one of his radio or TV shows and recorded on that 45 RPM. It's a great song! I'm not big on Gene Kelly (he's OK) but I like Fred and Ginger (I just read gunsock's hub on Ginger yesterday.)


AEvans profile image

AEvans 7 years ago from SomeWhere Out There Author

William: I must read that hub as it sounds interesting , I will check the 45 I honestly may be mistaken, her voice was so different I thought it was her. ) Over the weekend I will have to start reading as many hubs as I can, I have been so buried in everything I apologize.:(

I could answer five of these with utter certainty, another 10 with complete uncertainty. The others got me thinking just how dumb I really am. As far as trivia. Remind me not to go on that millionaire show, or any other game show for that matter.
