Get ready to have fun learning new things and something about yourself with these fun quizzes.
Here is a quiz of ten snappy questions to get the fun started.
Question 1 There is a popular band with five singers who are Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson. When they went around the world on their “Take Me Home Tour,” during 2013 why did the tour take so long?
Answer: Because they could only go around the world in One Direction.
Question 2 What number never ends?
- the number of times it is possible to divide something in half
- a sideways eight
- all of the above
Answer: The correct answer is “E.” Here’s why.
Pi is represented in mathematics by a Greek symbol. Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter of a circle. The number starts like this 3.1415926 and continues on after the decimal point forever. Pi has been calculated to over two quadrillion decimal places and there is no pattern in the numbers at all.
A few people with outstanding memories have been able to recite Pi from memory correctly to tens of thousands of decimal places. One Japanese man, Akira Harguchi claims to hold the world record at 100,000 digits. He is requesting verification by the Guinness Book of World Records.
For average people an approximation of Pi is sufficient for most purposes. By remembering this phrase “May I have a large container of coffee?” it is easy to remember the first few digits of Pi. Just count the numbers of letters in the words making up the phrase. They are 31415926.
Infinity is the term used to describe anything without limit. No matter how small something gets, dividing it in half is possible theoretically to continue forever.
When the number 8 is turned to its side such as this ∞, it becomes the mathematical symbol for infinity.

Question 7 The grand ocean liner RMS Titanic was thought to be “unsinkable.” It sunk when it hit an iceberg and on its maiden voyage. After that tragedy, who would be given the nickname of “unsinkable”?
Answer: The “unsinkable” Margaret “Molly” Brown. Molly Brown survived the Titanic disaster in 1912 by being in Lifeboat No. 6. After the Titanic went down to the depths, she insisted the lifeboat crew return to the area to look for any remaining survivors. The public learned of this gallant effort and gave her the moniker of “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.” A Broadway musical play and a successful film of that same name were made based on her life. The actor Kathy Bates portrayed her in the blockbuster smash hit film, Titanic, released in 1997.
Question 8 Who was the first Twitter user to reach 20 million followers and what did she sing at the 2015 Academy Awards ceremony?
Answer: Lady Gaga was the first to break the 20 million plateau of followers on Twitter. She now has over 40 million Twitter followers.

Question 10 What is the name of Oprah Winfrey’s Television Production Company and her television network?
Answer: Her television production company is called “Harpo.” This is not a reference to the famous comedian Harpo Marx, instead it is simply “Oprah” spelled backwards. Her television network is called “OWN,” not because she owns it, but due to the initials as in the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).
