Snowball Round 2

This is the second Snowball Round I wrote for a quiz, this time I decided not to have a theme for the quiz and just went for a bunch of random questions. As it happens, this Snowball Round was actually won by someone who had visited Hawaii and knew the last question, so see how you compare.

Don’t forget that as it is played at the end of the night we need need a little helping hand, so the first question is always D and the second questions is almost always D. Good luck!
