SDC Trivia Game #382 - 11/06/2024

Question 1: What is the term for the inability to recognize faces?

Prosopagnosia, also known as face blindness, is a cognitive disorder characterized by the inability to recognize familiar faces, including one's own face. It is often caused by lesions or damage to the fusiform gyrus region of the brain.


Question 2: When was barbed wire invented?

Barbed wire was invented by American farmer Joseph Glidden in 1873. Its invention greatly changed the development of the American West, enabling effective fencing of cattle ranges on the Great Plains.


Question 3: How many countries have agreed to the Paris Agreement on climate change?

The Paris Agreement is an international treaty on climate change that was adopted by 196 Parties at COP21 in Paris in December 2015. The agreement aims to substantially reduce global greenhouse gas emissions to limit global temperature increase in this century to 2°C above pre-industrial levels, while pursuing means to limit the increase to 1.5°C.



Question 4: Which country celebrates Diwali, the festival of lights?

Diwali is India's biggest and most important holiday of the year. The festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness.


Question 5: In which Shakespeare play does the character Mercutio appear?

Mercutio is Romeo's close friend and kinsman to Prince Escalus in Romeo and Juliet. He is known for his witty and often bawdy sense of humor, as seen in his famous "Queen Mab" speech in Act 1, Scene 4.


Question 6: In which country is the national animal a unicorn?

The unicorn was first used on the Scottish royal coat of arms in the 12th century. In Celtic mythology, the unicorn symbolized purity, innocence, masculinity and power.


Question 7: Who is credited with formulating the three laws of motion and the law of universal gravitation?

Newton published his groundbreaking work Principia Mathematica in 1687, laying the foundations for classical mechanics. His three laws of motion describe the relationship between a body and the forces acting upon it, while his law of universal gravitation states that every particle attracts every other particle with a force proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.



Question 8: How long does the average person spend dreaming each night?

While the amount varies from person to person, an average adult spends about 2 hours per night dreaming during REM (rapid eye movement) sleep stages. This equates to around 6 years spent dreaming over the course of a lifetime.


Question 9: When is International Beer Day celebrated?

International Beer Day was founded in 2007 in Santa Cruz, California. It has since expanded to a worldwide celebration to show appreciation of beer and the people who brew and serve it.


Question 10: What is the square root of 256?

The square root of a number is a value that, when multiplied by itself, gives the number. For example, 4 × 4 = 16, so a square root of 16 is 4. Since 16 x 16 = 256, the square root of 256 is 16.

About the norm. :)
 
.???. There are only 195 countries in the world!
Taiwan, Niue and the Cook Islands are not considered countries by the UN along with any dependencies which are not self governing. Maybe some of these are in the 196 mentioned in the question.

EDIT: Countries who haven't signed the Paris Agreement - Yemen, Libya, Iran and Eritrea.
