The answer to yesterday's question is:
Germany competed as a unified team (not West and East Germany) for the first time since 1964. Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania competed as independent nations for the first time since 1936. The rump of the former Soviet Union, which had started breaking up, competed as the Unified Team. Croatia, Slovenia, and Bosnia and Herzegovena competed for the first time; because of UN sanctions, teams from the what was left of Yugoslavia were forbidden to compete. With the end of apartheid, South Africa competed for the first time since 1960. Four National Olympic Committees didn't send their athletes to compete: Afghanistan, Brunei, Liberia, and Somalia.
Today's question, the last in 1990-1999 Week, is:
How many years passed between Nirvana's hit Smells Like Teen Spirit and the death of Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain?
Tomorrow starts 2000-2009 Week, and then non-decade-related trivia will resume for awhile :-)
