As we work our way through Black History Month, I’m struck by all the stories being presented that never showed up in our history books. At least, not the ones used in Elementary and High School. So, I got to thinking, what other stories are out there? What are we missing? So, this episode is dedicated to the untold stories. The weird, the unusual, and the uncomfortable. So, whos is ready for Untold History Trivia?
Do you hear the people sing? Singing the songs of angry men?
This Sunday marks the 230th anniversary of the storming of the Bastille, in Paris, France. A huge moment in the French Revolution. The week, we’re diving into the sordid and bloody affair with thirty trivia questions that are sure to challenge you.
I keep hearing people say, “Seems like only yesterday” but I can’t agree. Even so, it’s an impressive achievement. 40 years ago today, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon.
It seems so trite a phrase “Landed on the moon,” but really think about it. Think of the forces involved. The sheer balls of it. Think of the MATH! In 1969 we put two guys on the freaking moon and brought them back! That was something special and my hats off to everyone that helped out.
If you want a trip down memory lane (or to pretend like you were alive back then, like me), NASA has a great site full of photos and videos.
And, if you’re really jonesing for a trip back, Google Moon can help you out.
