Week two of the weekly trivia feature on my blog. Each week centers around a central theme. Last week's can be found here. This week's theme is: "Four Score"

  1. FORTRAN is one of computing's oldest programming languages. It was developed in the 1950s by what computing giant?
  2. In golf, if you make it into the hole one under par, you score a birdie. One over? A bogey. Two over is a double bogey. What is the term used to describe if you make it into the hole two below par?
  3. We've all gotten 404 error pages online. These occur when a server can't find a page that a user was linked to.

Peter Flynn was employed by the college for what four-letter Irish city?
  4. University of Wisconsin's mascot is Bucky the Badger, which is designed in the likeness of a North American badger.

What is the fourth badger breed?
