    True or False

    I have (foolishly) agreed to create a True or False quiz for a fundraising night for my nephew. He is going to Botswana with the Project Trust in September for a year.

    Can any of you puzzlers help me with some interesting facts (and the answers!!). The age range of people at the fundraiser is 18-60 years and I am looking for some funny statements that anyone could answer/guess at.

    Any help would be appreciated - the fundraiser is on 9th April so help before then would be handy!
    Thanks

    Re: True or False

    Rock avalanches can attain velocities greater than some aircraft. (true)

    Have a look here

    And if you put "true or false" quiz into Google you get a whole bunch of unlikely stuff (just keep on going...!), including more than you might ever want to know about rabbits (among which I note that rabbits are not rodents...) from the "Ontario Rabbit Education Organisation".

    I hope you win!

    Re: True or False

    I'm sure you're correct. There's an old Lancaster bomber sitting in the air museum here, without an engine. I'm certain that any rock avalanche could attain a higher speed than it could.

    Re: True or False

    You should be able to find vast resources if you google using General Knowledge Questions, or Quiz Questions or True and False type Questions. This should trigger some ideas of questions you can use. You could also grab some questions from board games like Trivial Pursuit. (PS: just make sure it isn't the Genius Edition... <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>)

    Re: True or False

    Here is another question or two for your quiz.

    To prevent a soap bubble from breaking when you put your finger in it, your finger must be wet?
    Answer : <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">TRUE</span hide>

    How many tea-spoons of sugar are there in a standard glass of coke???

    At a guess I would say <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">4</span hide> ?

    Re: True or False

    I don't know how accurate my answer is, but I recall <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">8</span hide>. I remember that when I heard the answer a while back, it was shocking!!!

    Re: True or False

    i thought it was 7 tablespoons, but i googled it and theres only 5 tablespoons - which is equivalent to 15 teaspoons (Per 20oz. bottle of coke)

    oh and the largest fish is the whale shark - up to 50 feet long and up to 2 tons (snapple real fact #116) - scary that a 16oz. bottle of snapple has a serving size of 2...
