The Answers

So I got a few comments, but no one daring enough to throw out answers to the trivia questions I shared on Wednesday. Don't worry, I understand. I occasionally know an answer at trivia, but rarely voice it myself. I just wait for someone else to come up with it (which they inevitably do since there's yet to be an answer that I know that someone else on the team doesn't also know) and agree that it's correct. It's the safe way to go. Daring or not, I figured you still wanted to know the answers, so here you go:
