Trivia Tuesday ...

The blue whale is the largest animal ever known.

In other trivia news...
if you take a group selfie it is called a 'wezie'. 
Or it could be called a 'wefie'. 
Click HERE for the Urban Dictionary version.

Sunday afternoon I was part of a 'wefie' or a 'wezie'.
Here it is!
From left, Sam, me, Mother, Sylvia McElhany and behind her her husband my first cousin, Brian.
Brian and Sylvia are wonderful folks.
I'm so glad we're related.
They were in the Metroplex (they live in Texarkana) and couldn't resist visiting "Aunt Margaret"...
and Sam and I couldn't resist coming over to see them.
The 'wezie/wefie' took a few takes, but we finally got one that kind of 'took'.


In totally different trivia news...

The shortest war in history was between Zanzibar and England in 1896.
Zanzibar surrendered after 38 minutes.
I thought that was interesting.


Other trivia...
The S in Harry S. Truman did not stand for anything.
(The S in my father-in-law’s name, Robert S. Carmack, did not stand for anything either.)
-------
An average beaver can cut down two hundred trees a year.
I think that is amazing.
------------

The word "lethologica" describes the state of not being able to remember the word you want.
(I suffer from that state sometimes.)

------------

San Francisco’s cable cars are the only mobile U.S. National Monument.
You can click HERE to read about the history of the cable cars.
It's interesting!

So that is some trivia for today.

Maybe you learned something!!
