Daily Trivia: 11/26/12

Question: What toy made by OddzOn Products was a colorful rubber ball composed of about 5,000 rubber strands?


Last Question: What game featured 54 wooden blocks and has a name derived from the Swahili word for “to build”?

Answer: Jenga

Jenga is a game where players take turns removing a wooden block from the middle of a tower, and placing it somewhere on top, without the whole tower falling down. The game was invented by Leslie Scott. She was a British national, but was born in East Africa, where she was raised speaking English and Swahili.
In 1985, Jenga began to be distributed in the U.S. and Canada, and became a big hit.

And be honest, have any of you gotten aggravated, and give the tower an extra push when you saw that it was going to fall down?

It feels, like it’s forever
No reason for emptiness
But time just runs away
No more day by day

Great job Leviathan, Kids Inc Daily (@kidsincdaily) and picklebuggy (@picklebuggy)!!

It’s obvious you hate me
Though I’ve done nothing wrong
I never even met you
So what could I have done
