The John F. Kennedy Quiz


Recommended Posts

Joseph Kennedy Jr died in a B-17, not a B-24?

If I'm right, Ramon, my prize is that you have to read one of my posts. I don't think anybody else is.

Tom

I don't know about the B-17 vs. B-24, but it can be easily verified. My finding is something else. I will send it to you via private message.

-Ramon

ps: It will be my privilege to read your post.

Addendum:

I have seen your numeric post before. Due respect, I prefer more established science. :-)

Come on, folks! Most of the questions are easy. And the answers are multiple choice:

(1) When was John F. Kennedy born?

- 1917

- 1919

- 1921

(2) John F. Kennedy was born in Boston, Massachusetts.

- True

- False

BTW: I used to work not too far from the house.

(3) What was John F. Kennedy's middle name?

That one is embarrassing...

(4) How many siblings did John F. Kennedy have?

- 4

- 6

- 8

(5) Which nickname was not used to refer to John F. Kennedy?

- Johnny

- Jack

- JFK

(6) What childhood illness resulted in the hospitalization of John F. Kennedy?

- Scarlett fever

- Chicken pox

- Mumps

That one is hard ...

I have seen inconsistent accounts about the number of times Kennedy received the last rites (Viaticum). Some say 3, some say 4.

(7) Which East Coast private boarding school did John F. Kennedy attend?

Ramon, I'll take a stab at this. I see problems with 3 questions, which I wouldn't necessarily call "wrong."

#19: How many children did Jack and Jackie have? The answer "4" is not offered, perhaps because the stillborn Arabella is not considered a child. Though it would have been nice if Ms. Dove had noted this in her explanation for the answer.

#23: "35th President" -- an idiotic pet peeve of mine -- JFK's PRESIDENCY was the 35th, but he was the 34th President, unless Grover Cleveland was two men. GC is called the 22nd and 24th presidentS because he served two non-consecutive terms.

#25: (something like) "What country did we invade 3/15/61?" The only correct answer, The Bay of Pigs, is not a country of course. This is the only question that I see that is phrased wrongly, oddly. I'd like to declare the body of water behind my house, Troublesome Creek, a sovereign nation, but the neighbors already think I'm strange.

Will you please give your answer about which question is wrong, and SOON? It's bugging me.

Hi Roy:

What I found is indeed #19. Arabella Bouvier Kennedy was baptized. She and Patrick are buried next to her father.
