Trivia Time!!
Question 1:
Which of the following animals will DIE if it stops moving around and stay still?

A: Shark
B: Earthworm
C: Jellyfish
D: Honey bee

Comments on Answer: Not bad.. how come for those who submitted their answers they all guessed shark?

Model Answer: Like other fishes, sharks extract oxygen from seawater as it passes over their gills. Some sharks have a modified slit called a spiracle located just behind the eye, which is used in respiration. Due to their size and the nature of their metabolism, many sharks have a higher demand for oxygen than bony fishes and cannot rely on ambient water currents to provide an adequate supply of oxygenated water. If these sharks were to stop swimming, the water circulation would drop below the level necessary for respiration and the animal would suffocate. The process of ensuring an adequate flow of the gills by forward movement is known as ram ventilation.

Model Answer: To mark territory, hippos spin their tails while defecating to distribute their excrement over the greatest possible area

Question 5:

In your fifth question, identify the creature from the following that has 5 hearts.

A: Starfish
B: Octopus
C: Lizard
D: Earthworm


Question 6:

Which part of your digestive system is responsible for the formation of flatus (commonly known as 'fart')?

A: Small intestine (except duodenum)
B: Whole of large intestine
C: Stomach only
D: Duodenum only

Model Answer: Anything that causes food to be incompletely digested in the small intestine may cause flatulence when the material arrives in the large intestine due to fermentation, particularly if yeast organisms are present.

Flatulence producing foods are typically high in polysaccharides (especially oligosaccharides such as inulin) and include beans, lentils, milk, onions, radishes, sweet potatoes, cheese, cashews, broccoli, cabbage, Jerusalem artichokes, oats, yeast in breads, etc. In beans, endogenous gases seem to arise from oligosaccharides, carbohydrates that are resistant to digestion. These pass through the upper intestine largely unchanged, and when they reach the lower intestine, bacteria feed on them, producing copious amounts of flatus.

Question 7:

Which gas is the primary component of flatus (or, fart)?

Model Answer: Nitrogen

Comments on Answers: No! Methane is NOT the primary component!!! Your fart is basically air. And as you have already know, nitrogen makes up more than 70% of air...

other than the 5 people who are not going to join us for dinner, everyone else please remember to bring $25.40 tomorrow. the other 5 people will bring $12.70. please try to show some consideration and pay as exact as possible. nobody is going to be there to provide you change if you are going to pay with a $50-notes. that is unless, you really feel kind and offer to pay on behalf of the class. :)

it's at Marina Square, Seoul Gardens. it's on the 3rd level but i'm not too sure exactly where. however, i'm sure you guys will have no problems finding the place, just check out the directory when you reach marina square.
if you have no cca tomorrow, join our darling elicia on her way to the place first. you all can choose to go straight there after school or wait till later before you make your way there. but DO BE THERE BEFORE 4! :)
if you have cca and will be joining the class later, you can just make your way there asap on your own. the class wldnt leave before you guys reach. :)

you can bring extra home clothes if you like to. but that's entirely up to you.

lol. last thing to note, dont eat too much for lunch that day K? whahahaha. save some space in your stomach for the endless supply of food at seoul gardens! :)
