Ok Mr. yackety yack, just teasing. think ur ok.im supposed to be the yacker. tease.

4. Reason this is true. People get sick from bacteria and viruses,not weather. Since it is warmer inside and most of these critters need a warmer temp to stay alive, that is why people get sick. Also people are closer so easier to spread germs. The air borne germs stay in this close inside air. Outside they are blown or snowed away.

Hey isnt it fun to walk outside barefoot when it is 30degrees and know it wont hurt you? LOL

6.. I heard 5% but that was long time ago, so maybe it changed. In the Learning Disabled population, the % is 15. :-o :-o

I would go on hungtng trips for 10 days at a time after Elk in Wyoming in sub freezing temperatures living in a tent sleeping on the ground, walking in snow all day long and never caught a cold.
Same on my skiing trips.

You want to get sick, visit a friend at a hospital, spend a day in public schools, the more people you get around, the more germs they blow on you. Touching elevator buttons and putting your hands on bathroom door handles is most of the transmission causes. I touch buttons with my elbow and open doors with a paper napkin now, that is how Sars went wild.

Don't want to seem to be arguing, but...

Viruses cannot live outside of the body for long.Some only for a few seconds, which is why a person does not get AIDS this way. That one dies almost immediately when it hits the air, plus it is spread by body fluids, primarily blood only. Any viruses on door handles etc, are probably already dead, unless you immediately touch it after a sick person did.

The reason schools are a problem is because the kids are constantly touching the handles so when we touch one, the virus is still alive. New school teachers usually catch a lot the first year and then develop immunity so after that dont get sick as much.

Bacterial infections causing things like sinus infections and pneumonia seem less contagious too, because those bugs like livin where they are. Things like strep throat and mono seem more contagious but mono is a virus so would probably be dead before you touched the handle. IMO, shaking hands is more likely to transmit a virus if the person just touched blew their nose or somethin.

I touch handles and elevator buttons all of the time and never catch anything, but then those with strong immune systems dont catch things. :-o

Rest easy. Take lots of supps, especially things like vit e and c and stay healthy. :-D :-D

In case you wondered, I have a background in immunology,which deals with the immune system,how to boost it, how disease is transmitted. ;-)

The lastest on Sars which shut down China for a month is this, it is transmitted by touching door handles and elevator buttons, that is how it got rolling in Canada. Now they say Cats and ferrets can spread it as well. The less you touch, the better off you are. I wish we could stop shaking hands and just bow like the Japanese do. Just for the record I have owned Cats all of my life, I like them and I once owned a black footed ferret when they thought they were extinct back in the early 70's. :-o

As we get around to finalizing our activities, we need a handful of nails to finish up the work. You know about finishing nails: they don't really do heavy work, but they sure are nice when they tack up those little jobs.
That's just about what trivia questions are like. They add the little extra touch to your meetings. Trivia questions can fit in almost anywhere: an icebreaker at a banquet, a warmup at a bonfire at camp, a Plan B during a rainy day.
Here's a different approach to presenting your trivia questions. Rather than just calling them out and looking for someone to stand up and answer, make it a group project. Divide your teens into groups of three, four, five...even up to twenty, if you have a larger group. Have them circle their chairs and put a scorekeeper in the middle with a pencil. When you ask a question, the teens will be given 15 seconds to come up with an answer and agree upon it. Their scorekeeper will write down the answer. After 15 seconds you will blow the whistle and then you will give the answer. If the team is right, their scorekeeper will raise his hand.
Group trivia is a lot safer, because the voting and discussion keeps the individual from being chastised for getting an answer wrong that would jeopardize his team.



STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE

This trivia game is played in groups of at least four teens and the winning team wins a case of Pepsi. What do you do? You vote as a team. If you think the answers are true, you ALL stay standing. If you think they are false, stay seated. The joy or humility is shared as a team! The team with the most points wins the Pepsi.

HERE ARE THE QUESTIONS, WITH THE ANSWERS IN CAPS AFTER THE QUESTIONS

1. A hamlet is a village without a church. TRUE

2. About one-sixth of the earth's surface is permanently covered with ice. FALSE

3. Australia is the only country that is also a continent. TRUE

4. French was the official language of England for over 600 years. TRUE

5. Disney World in Orlando, Florida covers 146 square miles, making it twice the size of the island of Washington DC. FALSE

6. Damascus, Syria, was flourishing a couple of thousand years before Rome was founded in 753 BC, making it the oldest continuously inhabited city in existence. TRUE

7. All gondolas in Venice, Italy must be painted brown, unless they belong to a high official. FALSE

8. Alaska, with 8, is the US state with the most national park sites. TRUE



THUMBS UP, THUMBS DOWN

Your teens will be put into groups of three or five (an odd number, so there are no ties) and they will be voting true or flase on trivia by showing thumbs up or down. Give points for correct answers and award the winning team with a large bag of Doritos.

Answers are in caps after the question.

1. Hanukah is the Hebrew word meaning "dedication." TRUE

2. Before World War I the German mark was equal to about one American dollar...but by 1921, things pushed inflation so bad that banks showed $4.6 million marks would be equal to $1. TRUE

3. In Indiana, it is illegal to ride public transportation and play chess. FALSE

4. The 'Happy Birthday' song is actually copyrighted. So legally and technically, if you somehow profit from the song you are entitled to pay royalities to the Time-Warner Corporation. TRUE

5. When the Apollo 12 astronauts landed on the moon, the impact caused the moon's surface to create a new crater thirteen feet across. FALSE

6. The highest g-force ever endured was 82.6g for 0.04 seconds on a water-braked rocket sled. The rider was Eli L. Beeding, Jr., at Holloman Air Force Base on May 16, 1958 and he was hospitalized for three days. TRUE

7. President Lyndon Johnson was sworn in as president on a Catholic Mass book, not a Bible. TRUE


CLOSEST WINS

In this trivia you give each team a chance to submit two answers. Then you award the points to the closest to the correct answer. 100 points to the closest; if a team answers it exactly, it is worth 200 points. In case of a tie, share the points. I've put the correct answer in parentheses:

1. After ____ years of losing, Charlie Brown actually won a baseball game on March 30, 1993. (43)

2. Of the 9 baseball players in the field, how many are allowed to call a time out? Answer: (0) Zero - any player can request a time-out, but it can only be called by an umpire.

3. There are ___ minutes in a pro football game. (60)
4. The most points ever scored in an NBA game was ____ points. (100)

5. For ONE TEAM, there are a total of ___ outs in a baseball game in the major leagues. (27)


YUH-HUH or UH-UH

This is simply a trivia game where the teens agree or disagree. Divide teens into teams of three. You call out the fact and the first teen to stand up gets recognized. He calls out YUH-HUH (yes) or UH-UH (no) and you then give the correct answer. If he is right, his team gets ten points. The winning teams all get Cokes.

The answers Y or N for yes and no are after the question.

1. Talk about a pig...er, horse! A 1,200-pound horse eats about seven times it's own weight each year. (Y)
2. While we're talking about eating. let me remind you that the average dog requires more food in proportion to its size than a human baby or a cat. (N)

7. A cow gives nearly 200,000 glasses of milk in her lifetime. (Y)
8. A Holstein cow's spots are like a fingerprint or snowflake. No two cows have exactly the same pattern of spots. (Y)



FILLUP TRIVIA ICEBREAKER

In this icebreaker, you award points to the team that can fill in the blank. Your teens should be divided into groups of three or four and will earn points for correct answers. The answers to these statements are in parentheses.

BIBLE STUDY OPENER: REVENGE TRIVIA CHALLENGE

This is a trivia game with an interesting twist to get across your teaching about greed.
Announce to the teens that tonight you will pit the girls against the guys and see who is better at knowledge about the United States. Pick questions from the Rand-McNally Almanac - questions such as state's capitals or nicknames. Both teams will start the game with 1000 points. Each question right is worth 100 points, but getting the question right means you can either get the 100 points or take away 100 points from the other team. If your team gets two questions right in a row you automatically get to take 10 extra points from the other team.

Ask ten questions total, with the last question being worth 250 points. After you announce the winner ask the teens these questions: Did you like the idea of taking away points as well as getting them? Wasn't there a measure of revenge in your motives? Did it get you angry? Did the other team seem greedy?

Start the study on selfishness in these passages:
