This is a historical figure. If you know who it is please give an obscure hint in the comments to help others. If you don’t ask questions that can be answered true or false like the old game show What’s My Line.
Air traffic controllers usually call airlines by their names but some airlines have interesting call signs. See if you know these airlines from their call signs. Take the test and tell us how many out of 10 you got in the comments.
Ex. Smart Cat is TigerAir Taiwan. (Often the call sign comes from the company logo or more precise the prior company logo at times.)
It’s a secret but I can tell you. It was a missile base that was nuclear powered. The plan was to have miles of tunnels.
According to the documents published by Denmark in 1997, the U.S. Army’s “Iceworm” missile network was outlined in a 1960 Army report titled “Strategic Value of the Greenland Icecap”. If fully implemented, the project would cover an area of 52,000 square miles (130,000 km2), roughly three times the size of Denmark. The launch complex floors would be 28 feet (8.5 m) below the surface, with the missile launchers even deeper, and clusters of missile launch centers would be spaced 4 miles (6.4 km) apart. New tunnels were to be dug every year, so that after five years there would be thousands of firing positions, among which the several hundred missiles could be rotated. The Army intended to deploy a shortened, two-stage version of the U.S. Air Force’s Minuteman missile, a variant the Army proposed calling the Iceman.
The glacier moved faster than the planners figured which made the structures unstable. The base had to be abandoned.
In Japan, the essential appliance is the rice cooker. You wash the rice put the rice in and appropriate amount of water then push a button. That’s it. In about 30 to 40 minutes you have perfect rice. If you want you can do it at night and set the timer so you can wake up to rice for breakfast.
For this game I will make the exchange rate 100 yen to a dollar. So if you guess $20 and the price is 2000 yen you win. The closest guess without going over the amount wins.
This rice cooker is a brand name and can make 5.5 cups of rice.
