Happy New Year !

1. This commonly used household item was first invented by the Egyptians, some 5000 years ago. It was a crude Mixture of wine and pumice. From the early Roman Empire until eighteenth century Europe and America, urine was a main ingredient in this item because the ammonia in it is an excellent cleaner. Ammonia is still a main ingredient in many modern versions of this item. What is this item?

2. It was the World War II slang for UFO’s. Some say it was a hush – hush group of air force pilots who tried to shoot down UFO’s. Which band gets its name from the above slang?

3. A popular beverage gets its name from a Greek Athlete in classical times who was reputed to have phenomenal strength. He was said to have supported the roof of a collapsing building in which the mathematician, Pythagoras, was teaching, thus saving his life. The beverage advertises itself as must-have energy drink. Name the Beverage.
