Edit: However, you didn't follow the directions:
Please guys to make it more fun don't cheat and guess if you don't know because after all it is only fun and not serious! Best of luck everyone! And some of the questions may be hard!"

@Mai - Best Answer should go to the user who answered the question within the guidelines set by the asker. You chose to ignore the guidelines set by Kevin and therefore you do not deserve Best Answer. If you knew every single fact from #1-25 along with the little accents then I will worship you like I worship Christ. But we all know that you used outside information to answer this question.
Best answer should go to Jay, no questions asked
