19 Nov 2017, Day 92

Question 1:
Because the company increased shareholder dividends for 25 years in a row, what S&P designation was granted the world's largest distributor of toys? Answer: S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats.

Please see Day 45 for the explanation.

Question 2:
What industry is the primary user of perchloroethylene, a chemical that researchers at Boston University have linked to mental illness, like bipolar disorder? Answer: dry cleaners.

Please see Day 8 for the explanation.

Question 3:
Who is generally regarded as one of the very first Americans to die in the struggle for liberty from British Rule? Answer: Crispus Attucks.

When you place revolutionary war first casualty in the search field you'll see two names. The other, an 11 year old boy named Christopher Seider died two weeks before Attucks, but in typical Internet fashion there are many arguments but no citations(even from an organization like the New England Historical Society, who have the means to investigate). Until source material becomes widely available Mr. Attucks is the answer.
