    reveal's Daily Trivia 11.30.18

    Weekend edition!

    1) Before Michael Phelps came on the scene and won eight golds at the 2008 Beijing games, who held the record for winning the most gold medals at a single Olympics? Answered

    Mark Spitz. He won seven golds in the 1972 Munich games. Like Phelps, Spitz was a swimmer.


    2) Early in Earth's history, scientists speculate that there was one supercontinent, known as Pangea, surrounded by one global ocean. What name is the ocean known by? Answered

    Panthalassa. The breakup of the continents was accompanied by division of the oceans.


    3) What is the name for the Jewish cookie that is made of rolled-up dough, filled with chocolate, nuts, jam, or another filling? Answered

    Rugelach. The dessert may be associated with Hanukkah because of the Book of Judith, but they are appropriate to eat at any holiday or non-holiday, all year round.

    Correct on #1 and close enough on #3!

    1) Mark Spitz. He won seven golds in the 1972 Munich games. Like Phelps, Spitz was a swimmer.

    3) Rugelach. The dessert may be associated with Hanukkah because of the Book of Judith, but they are appropriate to eat at any holiday or non-holiday, all year round.
