I think you're right there Cazza. Sorry Beauty, they just don't fit the format.

Answers on Factacular are taken from other facts. It's not possible to specify the incorrect answers for any given question.

All facts need to be of the form: X blah blah blah Y. For example, "Raging Bull was directed by Martin Scorcese". The question could then be "Who directed Raging Bull?" and the answers would be Martin Scorcese plus three directors from other facts.

Unfortunately, the answers to your questions aren't interchangeable, so they won't really fit the format. The same applies to your black hole facts. All very interesting though and I enjoyed reading them...

Does that make sense?

Sometimes it is possible to pick an idea for a new subject out of suggestions like this one ...


What Important Incident Happened To?

Beethoven at 17 (or in year?) -- Found a publisher
John F Kennedy at 35 (that is a guess, not fact) -- Became President of the USA

Might be difficult?

Or maybe Fictional Music Tastes

Schroeder -- Beethoven
