[Answer] Automobile accidents are more likely to involve which color car?

Step 1 : Introduction to the question "Automobile accidents are more likely to involve which color car?"



...A 20-year study completed in 2013 concluded that black cars are more likely to be in an automobile accident - up to 47 percent more likely - than any other color car. It is the low visibility of these black cars that makes them more vulnerable, especially at dusk. But it isn't all bad news for black cars: during daylight, these cars are only 12 percent more likely to be in an accident than white cars. The study found white cars the safest to drive because of their higher visibility in all light levels. Source: Reference.com

[Answer] Which creature has three hearts?

Step 1 : Introduction to the question "Which creature has three hearts?"



...Octopuses are the bizarre cephalopods who are extremely smart and very good at squeezing through tight spaces. But that isn't the only thing that makes them remarkable. Octopuses have three hearts. One heart keeps the blood flowing through the circulatory system to the body's organs. The other two hearts work to move blood beyond the octopus's gills. When an octopus swims, the organ heart will stop beating. This explains why the octopus prefers to crawl rather than swim - an activity they find exhausting. Source: SmithsonianMag.com

[Ans] Which actor made his film debut at age 10, kicking Elvis Presley in the shin?

Step 1 : Introduction to the question "Which actor made his film debut at age 10, kicking Elvis Presley in the shin?"



Elvis Presley spent September of 1962 in Seattle, working on his 12th movie, “It Happened At The World’s Fair”. Probably the most memorable scene from this movie involved Presley’s character bribing a kid to kick him in the shins. That hired foot belonged to a young Kurt Russell; uncredited at the time, but a future Disney star. Recalling the scene years later, Russell says that he didn't want to do it, as Elvis was such a huge star and Russell was a fan of his. He says that finally Elvis paid him $5 to do it and he did. Russell would eventually portray Elvis in a made-for-TV movie and overdub the Presley voice in Forrest Gump.

[Ans] In a standard deck of 52 playing cards, which king does not have a moustache?

Step 1 : Introduction to the question "In a standard deck of 52 playing cards, which king does not have a moustache?"



A deck of playing cards is filled with enigmas and mysteries. Many believe the four kings in a deck of cards represent great rulers of the past. The King of Hearts is one of the most iconic cards in the deck, mainly because of his awkwardly placed sword. Because of that, he’s earned the nickname of “suicide king.” The King of Hearts was dubbed Charles, presumably after Charlemagne, King of France and the first Holy Roman Emperor, who lived from 747 to 814 AD. He’s the only king without a mustache, the only king doing something active with his weapon.
