Trivia Recap – (Game #599) – November 16, 2021 – Virtual/Streaming

Just a quickie recap, I’m kind of in the middle of things, so…just the questions, ma’am (or sir, or whatever courtesy title you wish – master, perhaps):

If I edit in answers they will be in the comments (not until later).

3) Movie Quotes – “When I was growing up, I knew I was different. The other girls were blonde and delicate, and I was a swarthy six-year-old with sideburns.”

4) Reality TV – Phil, Kay, Jase, Willie, and Korie are among the cast of what A&E reality series that aired from 2012-2017? Miss.

NERD POINT: What is their last name? Miss.

3) Medicine – What medical device uses electrical impulses, delivered by electrodes contracting the heart muscles, to regulate the beating of the heart?

4) Money – Which U.S. state quarter features a depiction of two locomotives, the Jupiter and Union Pacific No. 119, facing each other under the words “Crossroads of the West?” Thank you Facebook clue.

Mystery Two – Visual

Missed every one. We know president stuff, but not sportsball stuff…

Final – Inventors

What inventor, who held more than 50 patents in the U.S., including for a folding ironing board and a lawn sprinkler, is best known for his 1872 invention of an automatic lubricator for steam engines that made railroad operations more efficient?
