Why don't you feel or see a mosquito bite until after it begins to itch?

We would like to think that the reason we don't feel the mosquito biting us is that Mother Nature is merciful. If we were aware that the mosquito was in the process of sinking its mouth into our flesh, we might panic, especially because a simple mosquito bite takes a lot longer than we suspected.


Who am I?

Today, I am a popular tourist destination and a European hotspot for nightlife, though many years ago I was more known for the volcano that essentially formed my modern makeup. I sit in the Aegean Sea, a collection of islands formerly known as Thera. I was given my current name by the Latin empire, in reference to Saint Irene. It's thought by some that the lost city of Atlantis sits off my shores, though it is only speculation. I boast no rivers and potable water was scarce up until the early 1990s. Today, most of my residents no longer have to collect rainwater. Tourism drives my economy and I can provide visitors with some of the most stunning photographic opportunities in the world.

Answer to the last Who am I?  John Wayne

Who am I?

I was born May 26, 1907, the son of Clyde and Mary Morrison. Though born in Iowa, my family moved early in my life to California. I applied for admission to the Naval Academy, but narrowly missed the appointment, so I left my dog "Duke" and headed to USC to play football. I got my start in Hollywood when I traded football tickets to a western legend for a summer job as a prop man. Though I didn't join the Navy, I was a "Green Beret" and also served at the "Alamo". I only won one Oscar, but when I died on June 11, 1979, I was considered a legend.

Who Am I?

Nobody can pinpoint where I actually was invented, but it can be assumed I've been around as long as snow, in some shape, form or fashion.

      One of my earliest commercial appearances came at the 1919 State Fair in Dallas, where Samuel Bert sold me to hot customers needing a tasty treat. I've been a favorite in New Orleans for years, where I started out being sold from push-carts in the city, much like my early predecessor, "Italian Ice." In 1934, inventor Ernest Hansen patented the first known machine that actually produced me in mass quantities and I became a nationwide sensation thereafter. I come in almost an imaginable flavor, but you better hurry — if it's hot outside, I won't be around long.

Who am I?

 I was born in 2004 from the mind of Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg. Initially, I was simply a toy for Harvard students, but I quickly caught on with the co-eds at Yale and Stanford, too. In the blink of an eye, high school and college kids around the world were networking with me. Now, I've ditched the student-only restrictions and I'm interfacing with all kinds of people from around the globe, helping them keep up with family, friends and meet new people.
