TD 270: Back to Basics

Post by dnbguy » Sun Nov 15, 2015 6:55 pm

Welcome to TD 270!

I had big plans for this TD, but ultimately, I couldn't get quite it to work. So instead, I figured we would go back to basics. No gimmicks, nothing fancy.

Here are the rules:

1. Please submit your answers using this link. The deadline for submissions will be Sunday, November 22 at 8:00 PM EST. Do not post the answers in this thread!
2. The object of the game is to answer the following trivia questions and score the fewest points. Each question has multiple answers. If you give a correct response, your score for that question will be equal to the total number of players who gave that response. If you give an incorrect response, your score for that question will be equal to the highest scoring correct response (the SHEEP score) plus 5.
3. You may DROP one question. If you use the DROP option, your score for that question will be 0. This may only be used once - otherwise, it will be marked as incorrect.
4. You may SHEEP one question. If you use the SHEEP option, your score for that question will be equal to the SHEEP score. This may only be used once - otherwise, it will be marked as incorrect.
5. Don't cheat! You may not intentionally look up information to answer these questions.
6. Ties will be broken by order of submission. You may resubmit answers as many times as you wish before the deadline, provided that you have not looked up the answers. Your final submission will be used to break ties.

Good luck!

CLARIFICATIONS

For question 5, the school must have a Division I men's basketball team.
For question 7, any Pixar movie released prior to 2015 will work, not just movies released in 2015.

On Question 5, are you looking for Division I football schools or Division I men's basketball schools? I suspect you're looking for the latter.

Correct. They don't need to have a football team, but they do need to have a Division I basketball team. Thanks!

For question 7, is it any movie released by Pixar, or just ones released in 2015?

For the Star Trek question, sometimes there are alternate timeline episodes where someone else is shown as captain. Do those count?

If they are a character shown on screen, yes. If they are only mentioned, no.

When are you people going to stop making me use up brain cells on Taylor Swift?

Not mean, fearless. If you disagree, speak now.

I don't get a single one of these references.

Wake me up when you're quoting 80s music. :D

I really appreciated the drop option when it came to Taylor Swift. No disrespect intended; I have a hole in my head where song titles and artists are supposed to be stored.
