I’ve got #9! [name_u]Anne[/name_u] [name_f]Hathaway[/name_f] (it’s so weird that it’s the same as the actress, though I assume today’s [name_u]Anne[/name_u] [name_f]Hathaway[/name_f] took it as a stage name for that reason.)

I can’t think for the life of me what the capitol of Arkansas is…

Don’t know any of those so I’ll share a fun fact:
You’re more likely to be sunburned while wearing sunshades than while not wearing any.

This is due to the fact that your eyes are the photoreceptors that tell your brain to produce melanin (which naturally protects you from UV rays) In the sun your eyes will automatically signal the brain to release more melanin. If the eyes are covered by shades, the photoreceptors are blocked and you will not release as much melanin as you would without them on. Therefore, you’re more likely to get a sunburn while wearing sunshades.
