Okay, If it's not cheating...

1. Before Russell Westbrook, who was the only player ever to average a triple-double over an entire NBA season?
As Chico Escuela would say, basketball - I don't know.

2. In what TV show's first-season intro can a U.S. flag be seen flying at half-staff, since it was filmed at Honolulu's Ala Wai Yacht Club the week of the Kennedy assassination?
Wanted to say Hawaiian Eye, but Gilligan's Island makes more sense.

3. What is the evident occupation of "Vegas Vic," the neon sign mascot who's been a symbol for Las Vegas since 1951?
Cowboy. He's the one in the neon sign you see in all movies set in Las Vegas in the 1950s. That sign, once part of the Pioneer Club casino, sill stands over a gift shop that occupies part of the Pioneer's original space.

4. The "diethyl" form of what class of organic compounds was once used as a solvent and an anesthetic?
I'll guess ether. Ether that or...

5. What beloved 1936 work of classical music has, as one of its title characters, a member of the Vladimir Lenin All-Union Pioneer Organization?
Porgy and Bess? (Wild Guess.)

6. The "bystander effect" in psychology is sometimes named after what Queens woman, murdered in March 1964?
Kitty Genovese

7. What unusual distinction is shared by all these albums? Brain Drain by the Ramones, Diamond Dogs by David Bowie, The First Time by Kelsea Bellerini, The Kick Inside by Kate Bush, Moving Pictures by Rush, Ride the Lightning by Metallica, Sittin' In by Loggins and Messina, They Only Come Out at Night by the Edgar Winter Group, Tuesday Night Music Club by Sheryl Crow, The Velvet Underground & Nico.
A song named after a novel.
