TD 250: Everything is Awesome (Awards Ceremony)

Post by jjwaymee » Mon Jun 29, 2015 2:33 pm

Questions will be posted before I go to sleep tomorrow night. Sorry for the delay. Everything is not quite as awesome as I had envisioned it would be about eight weeks ago when I took this slot. Significant home renovations have consumed close to 100% of my free time for the last two weeks but, as of last night, it is done. Check back with me tomorrow...

EDIT: We are a go! Good luck!!!

I feel your pain. We've got some major home renovations on our dance card for later this summer. Looking forward to your game!

I don't think I'll be around for the reveal of this one, but I may enter it anyway.

Think Different 250: Everything is Awesome


phpBB [video]


Things are pretty good right now around the jjwaymee household (the aforementioned renovations notwithstanding). It's summer, my golf game is pretty good, my work schedule is nice and relaxed, and I have standing appointments with some beaches most every weekend. So, in my mind, everything is awesome. I also loved The LEGO Movie and it is going to help form a theme to this TD quiz.

There will be no hardcore academic subjects this week. I'm even going to take a break from Presidents questions. This quiz is about fun subjects, guilty pleasures and, of course, LEGOs.

Without further adieu, let’s proceed with the reading of the rules…

First and foremost,

Please use the provided answer template to compose your entry.

If you were to enter this TD by quoting from or PMing from the post with the images, you could accidentally see many spoilers in the names of the image URLs. Please DO NOT do this.

THE RULES:

1. Please send me your answers by private message (use the template!!!). Do NOT post them anywhere in this thread!

2. The deadline for submission is 9:00:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time on Tuesday, July 7. I will start posting results Tuesday evening.

3. The object, as always, is to provide the least popular correct answer for each of the questions.
a. Your score on a question equals the number of people (including you) who gave your answer.
b. Incorrect answers receive the "sheep" score (highest score on that question) plus 5 points.
c. Lowest final score wins (with total computed by adding your scores together)

4. You may DROP one question by listing ‘DROP’ instead of an answer. That will give you a score of zero points for that question.

5. You may elect to take the SHEEP score for another question. Points for the SHEEP option will always be equal to 1) the number of people selecting the most popular answer (the “SHEEP” answer) or 2) the number of people who selected the SHEEP option, whichever is greater.

6. Answers must be provided out of the wealth of information that exists in your brain - no research! However, if you are lucky enough to stumble onto an answer between when you read the question and when you submit your answers, it is fully acceptable to use that.

7. The first tiebreaker will be the number of correct answers, followed by the number of singletons, then doubletons. Should there still be a tie among any or all podium finishers after that, I will post an image of a concert venue and you must guess how many seats are in it. (I am not kidding about this...)

8. If you have questions or comments, send them to me via private message unless you are sure that what you say will not reveal answers, offer hints, steer players away from negbait, or in any other way affect the outcome. If appropriate, I’ll post clarifications below the questions.

Good luck!


Summer is about seeing some good popcorn flicks. In that vein...

The pop song that performs the best on the Billboard charts each year between Memorial Day and Labor Day is declared the Song of the Summer. How much do you remember about these songs?

Since The LEGO Movie is tying together the theme of this TD, we will finish up with a question about its star, who is one of my favorite actors and appeared in one of my favorite TV shows of all time.
Question 10: Name EITHER A) a theatrically released film featuring Chris Pratt other than The LEGO Movie, OR B) name a member of the main cast (shown in the opening credits) of any season of Parks and Recreation, other than Chris Pratt. I am NOT asking for a film featuring other cast members of Parks and Rec.

CLARIFICATIONS

For Question 10: The two pools of possible answers are

A) Chris Pratt movies other than The LEGO Movie
B) The NAME of a cast member of Parks and Rec other than Chris Pratt

I am not asking for films that had other cast members of Parks and Rec. I have re-worded the question because I now see how it has caused confusion among a few early entrants.

Just wait until my game goes live in a couple of weeks. Like the Kaizer Chiefs, I predict a riot.

And I show you guys such generosity in putting you in the queue and posting your quizzes in the archive. I'll have to rethink how things work around here.

In any event, I already submitted, as putting more thought into it will have drastically diminishing returns.

Hey now, I've made sure there will be a Carole King reference in my quiz coming up!

I'm concerned about my ability to answer a couple of questions, but I have to at least give this one a shot just for those Lego recreations. The movie ones had me cracking up.

If I say that all of those Lego people look alike, does that make me a racist?

No, Mr. Gandhi, you are a blockist.

When I enter this one, I'll have to send our host an internet meme that's one of my favorites so he can use it in the reveal. If I post it now, it would be something of a spoiler.

I just posted my answers. At the last second (before submitting), I realized that I'd hit 'quote' instead of 'PM'. So, um, don't do that.
