    Default Yup, Wednesday and ......TRIVIA!

    Today's offering....

    Mata Hari, the infamous World War I German spy, was actually a Dutch woman called Margaretha Geertruida Zelle.
    Her colorful life included a career as an exotic dancer and liaisons with influential men that gave her access to information.

    She was convicted of espionage and executed by firing squad in 1917, although there was no hard evidence against her. She actually blew a kiss to the firing squad just prior to shooting her!

    There is, however, convincing evidence that the French intelligence officer who accused her was a German spy himself!
