TD 395 - KIRSTEN DUNST (FINAL RESULTS)

Posted: Sun Sep 16, 2018 10:36 am
by floridagator
The theme of this game is one of the leading actors of our time, Kirsten Dunst. In addition to being one of the busiest women in Hollywood, Dunst recently gave birth to her first child and is engaged to be married. Answer these questions pertaining to Kiki and her career. You don't need to know anything about area codes to play or succeed.

Standard TD rules apply. For each question below, there are a number of choices. Choose one as your answer. Think Different is scored by the number of people who submit the same answer. It's best to be the only person who chooses a particular answer. The most common answer is called the sheep. You don't want to be a sheep. Incorrect answers get the sheep score plus five points. Low score wins. Bonus questions will allow you to reduce your score.

You may drop one question and sheep one question. (To sheep means to accept the highest score on a question without fear of giving an incorrect answer.) No research! Your answers must come from your head; not your reference library, search engine or your neighbor who writes for a quiz show. This TD closes Monday, September 24 TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 at 9:00 AM EDT.

Submit your answers here

The wording on the submission form is for identification of the questions only. If there is any conflict between the submission form and this TD, this page prevails.

Finally, I would like to put a halt to people asking questions about the questions in the forum. Providing more clarification isn't fair to people who submit early. Please advise me privately if I have made some error in constructing the TD, but do not expect me to provide more information about the clues. If you're not sure something is a correct answer, don't use it. There must be some you're absolutely sure about.

Not only was George W. Bush a cheerleader, he liked to quote Kirsten Dunst titles like "Bring it on" and "Get over it".
