    reveal's Daily Trivia 5.19.17

    Weekend edition!

    1) What Latin phrase is the name for - and the beginning of - a string of text commonly used as a placeholder or filler by graphic designers? Answered

    Lorem ipsum. It has its origins in a passage by Cicero.


    2) What annual festival takes place in Indio, California? Answered

    Coachella, a multiday event featuring performances by some of the biggest acts in pop music. Many attendees camp on the festival grounds, and tickets usually sell out. The first festival was held in 1999.


    3) Spain's Prado Museum is a prime example of what type of architecture? Answered

    Neoclassical. It was built by Juan de Villanueva and originally intended to be a natural history museum, but instead became an art museum.

    3) Gothic
    you suddenly see a light, behind it is a glow, too bright to see, it comes toward you and part of it breaks off, and hits the ground near you, All magic and magic items cease to function and you all take 50 million divine damage ignoring damage reduction and immunities. Also you area all disintegrated.

    Baroque would have been my next guess. Neoclassical and baroque are popular in old Spanish buildings, while my fav, brutalism, is more of a France and Germany thing.
