Here’s a distraction for all of you DPC fanatics…..
First person with the correct answers gets my eternal admiration.

1. What was the maiden name of Richard Nixon’s Wife?

2. Which pitcher gave up Hank Aaron’s record setting 715 home run?

3. Fig Newton was named after what?

4. When (what year)was Nelson Mandela freed from South African prison?

5. Which side of buildings do icicles most often freeze?

6. How often must the Nobel Prizes be awarded?

I thought about using Google to find all the answers, but realized I'm too lazy. So I'll just wait for somone else to do it, and then read them :P

That would, presumably, depend rather on which hemisphere you are in.
