Well #2 was embarrassing. I chose Poor, Poor Pitiful Me because I (obviously mistakenly) assumed that country music was a point of weakness with the board, and that maybe the singer would be unknown to some participants, but then I didn't actually include Terri! I must have gone from reading the directions (title and artist required), to deciding which song to use (which is difficult in an office setting with no headphones), to answering the actual question (which only asked for the song), forgetting that the entire reason I went with that option was because title and artist were required.

At least that's what I'm going with.

econgator (F. Linda Ronstadt -- Poor Poor Pitiful Me (Warren Zevon's version is better) - wrong artist)
Didn't think it sounded like Linda, but wasn't sure who else it could be (never heard of Terri Clark).

Regardless, Zevon's version is still the best.

Well, I've never heard of her, to be honest. I knew the song well enough thanks to Warren Zevon, but I was never going to guess who was singing it here.

I'm sure there would have been one more added to the sheep had I listened to the audio clips, as I would have certainly chosen Terri Clark for my answer. So in this instance, taking the "sheep" actually saved me a point!

Q3 - Website required. 404 = Not Found. Name one of the websites below (company name is generally OK – “Amazon” would be accepted for “Amazon.com”) based on the 404 page/message.

This is one of those questions where it didn't pay to be a hockey fan.
I thought there would be a lot of people picking the Patriots for the 'pointing out that they lost' factor. But noooooooo...

Re: TD 404 - Not Found (Q5-Q6 Revealed)

Post by SenseiCAY » Thu Dec 06, 2018 3:28 pm

Q5 - Name required. Let’s talk about people who were not found (for a while, at least). Name one of the famous fugitives or missing people below:
  • Better known for his alleged role in a different attack, he was placed on the FBI’s most wanted list for his connection to the bombings at US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya in 1998. He was killed in a raid in 2011.
  • A hijacker who, in 1971, performed the only unsolved case of air piracy in the history of commercial aviation.
  • Wanted for 19 murders in the 1970s and 1980s, he led an organized crime group in Boston. He was arrested in 2011 and died on October 30, 2018.
  • Her bones may have been found on Nikumaroro in 1940, but erroneously identified as having belonged to a male.
  • An elder within the Fundamentalist Mormon church, he was accused of arranging marriages between underage girls and older men, and caught outside Las Vegas in 2006.
  • He disappeared from a restaurant parking lot outside Detroit in 1975, and speculation as to the location of his remains include underneath the no-longer-existent Giants Stadium in New Jersey.
  • A security consultant and former con man, he has served time in prison in the U.S., France, and Sweden, and was the subject of a movie starring Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio.
  • The nickname of Joaquin Guzman, former leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel. He was arrested in 1993, escaped in 2001, re-arrested in 2014, escaped again in 2015, and re-arrested again in 2016.
  • The subject of a 2012 documentary, he is the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army, known for abducting children as soldiers and sex slaves.
  • Captured in North Carolina in 2003, he was wanted for the bombing at Centennial Olympic Park in 1996, as well as several attacks on abortion clinics.

Post by SenseiCAY » Thu Dec 06, 2018 3:31 pm

A singleton generator for Q6 - lots of possible answers, and only a few dupes:

Q6 - Mythlogical creature required. Creatures not found - Name a type of non-human mythological creature. Specific names will be considered as entries for the general species (e.g. if humans were allowed, then “human,” “Hercules,” and “Sisyphus” would be graded as the same answer).

I did have to look a few up, but after that, there weren't any borderline ones - all of them passed muster pretty easily.

Earhart unused and bin Laden a singleton...*sigh* At least the coin landed on tails and I picked Scylla instead of Charybdis...a 2pt co-sheep (or really, just failing to grab a singleton on such a wide open question) on top of that would've been the pits :lol:

Q10 - NUMBER AND ANSWER REQUIRED. The theme of this quiz was 404 - Not Found, which is what a server sends back to your browser when it can't find the page or resource that you requested. There are many other HTTP return codes. Thanks to monkeyuser.com, some are depicted here, with a toilet standing in as the server:



(Link if it doesn't show up: https://imgur.com/a/olwMGGw)

Select one of the return codes and match it to one of the meanings below:
  • Internal Server Error
  • Expectation Failed
  • Request Timeout
  • Use Proxy
  • Bad Request
  • I'm a Teapot
  • Gone
  • Temporary Redirect
  • Payload Too Large
  • Too Many Requests
  • Moved Permanently
This one was a bit of a hodgepodge, as I'd imagine relatively few people know any of these off the top of their heads. It was pretty much "Which of these can I feel confident in?"

BONUS: Give as many answers as you can for Q10. Score -1 point for every two correct answers (rounded down, up to a -5 bonus). The player with the most correct without a miss will get an additional bonus of -3. Second and third most will get -2 and -1, respectively. Tied players will all receive the better bonus.

First of all, for every two correct responses, you got a (negative) bonus point, for a max of 10 correct responses and -5 points. The following players got at least 1 point taken off:

Secondly, the players with the most, second most, and third most correct responses without a miss got -3, -2, and -1 points, respectively. We had a tie at the top, where two players got all 10 responses (other than their actual answer on Q10) right. A few players got 8 right, but missed two answers by switching them around, so 7 was the next best score.
