Congratulations to Gerald, who answered all 5 questions correctly!
All 5 questions and their answers (and explanations) are below the video.
1. Where Has She Gone?
Answer: She’s Gone Country.
Explanation: Alan Jackson’s “Gone Country” tells the story of 3 people who are “going country” and the first verse is all about a girl who decides to pack up and leave for Nashville:
She’s been playin’ in a room on the strip for ten years in Vegas
Every night she looks in the mirror and she only ages
She’s been readin’ about Nashville and all the records that everybody’s buyin’
Says, “I’m a simple girl myself, grew up on Long Island”
So she packs her bags to try her hand
Says this might be my last chance
She’s gone country, look at them boots
She’s gone country, back to her roots
She’s gone country, a new kind of suit
She’s gone country, here she comes
2. Nothing was stolen in this home.
Answer: Sportsman’s Park.
Explanation: In the 1944 World Series, The St. Louis Cardinals played the St. Louis Browns. Sportsman’s Park was the home field for both teams. Neither team stole a base in the entire World Series – the only World Series to date that this has happened.
3. What date is set?
Answer: October 21, 2015.
Explanation: It’s the day Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to the future in their time machine, the DeLorean, in Stephen Spielberg’s “Back To The Future: Part II.”
The date was carefully chosen for one simple reason: It was a day, theoretically, the Chicago Cubs could win the World Series.
In the movie, Marty McFly notices while time traveling that the Cubs finally win the world series in 2015, and buys a sports almanac so his younger self can make bets and get rich when he returns from the future. But his nemesis, Biff, gets his hands on the almanac and gets rich instead.
“The Cubs winning the World Series was the most absurd thing we could think of [for someone to bet on],” the movie’s producer and screenwriter Bob Gale tells The Wall Street Journal’s Mike Ayers.
“If the Cubs were going to win the World Series, what date would that be on? In 1988, when we wrote this, there was only one set of playoffs, not two. If the World Series was going on and the Cubs were going to sweep the World Series, it could’ve happened on October 21. That’s how we arrived on that day.”
4. When You add it up, it comes to 10,900.
Answer: The total length of the shoreline of the Great Lakes, including the islands, in miles.
5. Ye art the coolest.

Explanation: Ye is Kanye west’s new name. He has a son with Kim Kardashian named North. A famous movie was North By Northwest, which starred Cary Grant. At the time, he was considered the coolest man alive.
