Well, Guru doesn't and we need your help! See if you can answer these amazingly difficult questions and win yourself the joy of being right!
But we thought the mere sight of Lenin already conjured up so much festivity!
What well-known Thai establishment recently had its first opening overseas in the UK?
B)The Londoner Brew Pub.
D)Cabbages & Condoms. After prolonged success in Thailand with its Thai-food-with-a-side-of-safe-sex premise, the restaurant has been launched in Bicester, Oxfordshire. The sexual health concept has also carried over to the UK offshoot, where condom-themed merchandise is sold with all profits donated to charitable causes in Thailand. However while the Thai branches of Cabbages & Condoms hand out condoms instead of mints at the end of a meal, the UK location hands out leaflets on protective sex and family planning. But the same slogan still applies universally: "And remember, our food is guaranteed not to cause pregnancy."
How is a Utah aquarium powering the lights on its Christmas tree?
A)By putting the plug into the socket, duh.
B)By having the state's Mormon population manually operate a generator.
C)By employing hydropower.
D)By using the electricity provided by an eel. The Living Planet Aquarium has placed the supercharged fish in a tank near a five-foot tree, and is using its power to illuminate four strands of lights. Officials at the aquarium say electric eels discharge electrolytes that can create a 600-volt electric charge, which basically means "a lot of power" to those of you who don't speak in fancy science terms. The eel-powered tree will be on display until Dec 31 if you happen to be in Utah.
Why might residents of the south Russian city of Novorossiysk have trouble finding their way around during the current holiday season?
A)Because everything will be covered in snow.
B)Because GPS navigation is banned in the city.
C)Because Russians aren't known for their sense of direction.
D)Because the mayor's office has decided to temporarily change the city's Soviet-era street names for more festive titles to cheer up residents. Novorossiysk's "Lenin Street" will be renamed "Father Christmas Street", "Soviet Street" will become "Festive Lights Street", and "Engels Street" will get the joyful "Snegovik
[Snowman] Street". The streets will return to their original names after the New Year celebrations are over.
