Quiz 2: Q2

10 Aug 10 | Re: Continued trivia rumbling

As promised, it’s time for quiz question number two of this run. But first, the answer to last week’s question. To see the answer, just highlight the text which I assure you is below, even if you can’t always see it:

The answer is that those two people both share a nickname. Victoria Hesketh is better known as Little Boots, while Gaius Julius etc is the full name of the Emperor Caligula, whose name is also a nickname meaning Little Boots. How about that.

And now for this week’s question:

In chemistry, and fact, which is the only chemical element named after a woman?

Answer next week. Next Tuesday.
