    Why is it odd that the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded by the Norwegian Nobel Committee?

    Because all the other awards are administered by Sweden (though Norway and Sweden were politically joined when the awards were instituted, and some think Nobel viewed Norway as the more progressive in areas of peace than more militaristic Sweden).

    OK: Glamorous Hollywood actress & scientist of the 1940s and '50s who held a number of patents, especially during WWII, that included a guidance system for naval torpedoes, and whose theories of frequency-hopping serve as a basis for modern spread-spectrum communication technology, such as COFDM used in Wi-Fi network connections and CDMA used in some cordless and wireless telephones.

    Extra point if you know the version of her name Mel Brooks used as a running gag in Blazing Saddles.

    the odd thing about the inscription is that he reversed the first letters ...so it would have translated as "Posher for Kassover"

    What size moter came in a 1979 10th aniversery Trans Am

    Actually there were 2 engines, the 403 from Olds, and Pontiac's own 400, which made 35 more horsepower (185 vs 220) and was in even fewer TATA cars. The rarest version is the 400 engine with a 4-speed manual.

    The stop-motion animation for the original King Kong in 1933 was done by pioneer Willis O'Brien. Who was his young protégé, who went on to create Hollywood's best animation effects through the 1980s, the standard before digital took over?
