Actually I had read that the salute goes all the way back to medieval times when knights had to lift their helmet visors to show their faces to the king.

Coppola and Brando... it would have to be The Godfather or Apocalypse Now? I'll go with the Godfather.

I believe the article I posted mentions that, too, then says the most common explanation was the one I posted. They all make sense, though.

As for your answer, you picked the wrong one, lol, but now I gave it away. haha!

Seems I always post questions that are either too difficult or too easy. I will have to stump everyone next time. Smile

I think Apocalypse Now.
Plus blather does hint more towards the scene with the renegade colonel when he's talking to Martin Sheen's character. Don't remember sequence word for word but sounds right.

Can't lose our classic trivia thread, one of the first games ever here!

Does anyone know the answer, so we can keep this going or does Yobes have us all stumped? Wink Tongue

Our Trivia Thread has been sitting idle too long, so I cheated. I Googled and discovered that bees have FIVE EYES:
Two large compound eyes and three simple eyes called ocelli.

Is that correct Yobes? That was a very interesting question (and answer).

Let me know if I found accurate information, and I will post the next question.

No problem, Yobes. Now I have to think of something, lol.

Okay. This may be too easy, but I will still see if someone still remembers this off the top of their head (remember no cheating like I did, lol. I only did it, because the question was there for so long).

How many colors are there in a rainbow?

That would be a shuttlecock. I've actually never heard it called a birdie!

Here's an oddball one. Which famous company's logo is written in Spencerian Script?

That is a really random, but also very interesting, question, CL-Ed! Smile

You are close enough, LuckyWalker, and I am sorry to hear that. You are better off without him then, right? Tongue

I read 30%, but I also read another article that said 20 to 40 percent, so go ahead and post a new trivia question to stump us all. Smile
