Trivia Thread? Woot

Can't believe we don't have a good ol' trivia thread,

These ones are really hard (sorry I was bored or something), so don't worry if you don't know them:
1. What is the national flower of scotland?
2. What was the exact month and year of the first moon landing?
3. How many singles titles has Pete Sampras won?
4. What was the nationality of the astronomer Copernicus?
5. In which city is the United Nations situated?
6. Name two of comedian Sasha Baron Cohen's pseudonyms.
7. Is marble a sedimentary, igneous, or metamorphic rock?
8. What character have actors Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin, and Ben Affleck all played?
9. What was the first name of Argentinian revolutionary Che Guevera?
10. Australia and the USA are the only two major countries which have not signed which agreement placing restrictions on greenhouse emissions?

No cheating! shame roflol

Re: Trivia Thread? Woot

Sampras has won a record 14 Grand Slam single titles. He's won the prestigious Wimbledon a record 7 times. cool

But I think 19 might be correct.

Re: Trivia Thread? Woot

Yes, 19 is what my teacher told me... and yet wikipedia says, "During his 15 year career, he won a record 14 Grand Slam singles titles". O_O what gives?

I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
