    Yup!

    The "House of Representatives" is comprised of, errrr, representatives of a specific congressional district.

    Some useless trivia: (Who knows, you may be on Jeopardy one day).
    - The number of representatives with full voting rights is 435.
    - The number of representatives per state is proportionate to population.
    - The most populous state is California, with 53 representatives.
    - There are seven states with only one representatvie: Alaska, Delaware, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, and Wyoming.

    Good one!

    I was hoping "offensive" would be a good curve ball, considering it could be also taken as "insulting."

    By the way, "offensive" did throw me off. :D

    I certainly would have had a hard time with it, especially being coupled with "beer belly."

    Vector graphics!

    I was stuck on the air defense at first. In my head, I associate that with people hunched over watching those black and green radar screens, then I realized that fit.

    Heh, I like the way you think!

    - Vectors are also referred to as "paths."
    - One advantage vector graphics had over pixel graphics is that images could be magnified infinitely without quality loss.
    - The US SAGE air defense system was one of the first organizations to use vector graphics displays.

    Welcome, sir! You're on the board!

    Aside from the more common interpretation of old age, "Over the hill" can also refer to escaping from prison or the military.

    That's correct!

    Microorganisms were first discovered in 1674 by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek using a microscope that he developed himself.

    I've been listening to Neil Degrasse Tyson and Bill Nye the Science Guy discuss Panspermia on Star Talk Radio: a very interesting theory that suggests life can be dispersed throughout the universe by cosmic collisions from entities like comets or meteors that have microbial life traveling along with them.

    Yup!

    "Are we there yet?" is an age-old phrase that has also been used as the title for a 2005 movie and a TV series spanning from 2010 to 2012.
