    gives a brief outline of the history of Dumaguete - with interesting facts about the 4 Bell Towers and the 'Bloody Encounter in Bayawan' (ON must have been there!).

    Another price of trivia: "In January 2018, scientists reported that 800 million viruses, mainly of marine origin, are deposited daily from the Earth's atmosphere onto every square meter of the planet's surface, as the result of a global atmospheric stream of viruses, circulating above the weather system, but below the altitude of usual airline travel, distributing viruses around the planet." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virus

    I don't know the answer as I picked that up from a Trivia Quiz on Sport (per your suggestion :smile: ) and am too busy with my routine (!) to check - but yours is better than the 'official' one!

    Okay - I know excitement is reaching fever pitch and everyone want to know the answer. It was 1984, in the Summer Olympics.

    But the first entrant for the prize out of the hat is a Mr @PatO - who gave an even more interesting response. He can choose any prize he wants as long as the mods on this site are willing to give it to him.
