1) How long did the Hundred Years War last?

 The Hundred Years' War, a conflict between England and France, actually lasted 116 years. It began in 1337 and ended in 1453, although there were long periods of truce or low-level fighting during that time.

2) Which country makes Panama hats?

Panama hats are made exclusively in Ecuador and are woven by hand from a plant called the Toquilla.

3) From which animal do we get catgut?

usually sheep - sometimes horses

4) In which month do Russians celebrate the October Revolution?

On November 7, 1917, Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin led his leftist revolutionaries in a nearly bloodless uprising against the ineffective Kerensky Provisional Government. As Russia was still using the Julian calendar at the time, period references show an October 25 date, and it's still called the October Revolution

5) What is a camel's hair brush made of?

A Camel hair brush can be made of ox, goat, squirrel, pony, or any variety of other natural animal hairs. Camel is the name of the person who invented the Camel hair brush.

9) Where are Chinese gooseberries from?

New Zealand, the U.S., Europe, and Chile. Chinese Gooseberries are native to China but are now grown commercially in other countries. In Chile, these fruits were initially called Chinese Gooseberries, but they are now more widely known as kiwis, which comes from the kiwi bird, the national bird of New Zealand.

10) What is the color of the black box in a commercial airplane?

Its orange. Orange makes the 'black' box easier to locate in the event of an air crash than, say, had it been actually black.
