A: Only about 3 years
B: 50 years old

That may sound impressive, but the tropical beauties only make viable cacao beans for just 25 years of their lifespan.

I remember hearing something in the news about the Tower ravens a couple of years ago. I'm pretty sure they gave the number then, but danged if I can remember it. For some reason, C: 6  seems to pop out at me.

I sorta remember hearing this one as well. Not sure if they were talking about Russia or China though. They said that the country (whichever one it was) had only  A: 1  time zone. I remember thinking how inconvenient that would be for people at opposite ends of the country.

Just a wild and crazy guess: A: 1x.  Also where we get the word 'sinister', meaning 'left' or on the left side, left handed, etc., taken to mean 'bad' or evil. Sounds like they were biased against left-handed people in those days. As a kid, I remember hearing about parents/teachers forcing left-handed children to be right-handed. Wonder how that worked out? :-\

Hmm. Obviously, cow and goat's milk is used by humans. I'm almost certain that reindeer's milk is used. So, it's between camels and elephants... my gut tells me that camel's milk is used, so I'll say E: Elephants.

I know that Harrison Ford had bit parts in movies dating back to the early-to-mid 1960s. And Sean Connery was in movies in the mid 1950s (like Darby O'Gill). Both were quite young in those roles, about the same age. So I'm guessing they are B: 12 Years apart.

Hmm. I was going to say- B: Where it is stored, like the livery stables in old westerns where they kept horses. But maybe an aircraft's livery is where things are stored in the craft itself. So, D: Its storage compartment.

   Normally we might think of livery as storage.  And my first thought (also) was where it was
stored... a hanger, Nah.  The storage compartment is where the "payload" is stored.
So must identify this...  :o ... A: The exterior color scheme !  (my guess anyway)
