Topic: The Not SO Easy Stuff, but still easy


Because i hardly ever answer the trivias correctly, I decided to start my own.

Since the questions are so incredibly simple the prize will be only 1 milbuck per answer.

Note: if u have answered all five questions correctly allow others to do so too - for about three turns.

Questions:

1. Who said, "Walk silently and carry a big stick."?
2. Who was the President of the Confederate States?
3. Why do we have the saying, "All roads lead to Rome,"?
4. Name the captial of Poland.
5. The Speak-Easies were created during what time period in general.

Yes, these questions are completely random.

Eh? What note? Its alright you don't have to pay me, but I'm a little confused here. No I did not get any note.

Sorry if you don't want me to answer the trivia, I'll keep my lips sealed.
