TD 442 - 11 Assorted Questions (1-5 + bonus revealed)

Post by Ironhorse » Tue Mar 17, 2020 2:19 am

Hello and welcome to TD 442! I thought we could all use another distraction right now, so I cobbled together an unthemed game. I hope you all enjoy.

1) Lowest point total wins; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players submitting that same answer
2) You may use one drop and take zero points for one question
3) You may elect to take the sheep answer for one question
4) Wrong responses are the "sheep" answer +3
5) There will be a 5 point bonus for answering questions 1-11 correctly (not including the optional bonus) and not using a sheep or drop.
6) Don't cheat
7) Submit here by 4 PM EDT on Tuesday, March 24. https://forms.gle/14C4tbYGrYfp66wK7

1) Name a First Lady who served in that role later than the Eisenhower presidency.

2) Give a name used by at least one Pope of the Roman Catholic church, (using the Catholic Encyclopedia as a source, so no antipopes. If there had been a Pope Dave I and Pope Dave II, for example, “Dave” would be the answer I’m looking for.)

3) Because I am posting this on St. Patrick's Day: Identify one of the following that includes "Saint", "St.", or "Saints".

*American indie rock band - biggest hits were “My Type” and “Move” several years ago
*Poet whose candle burned at both ends
*1929 Chicago gang ambush
*Nation with Kingstown as its capital
*Metallica album released to mixed reviews in 2003
*Weather phenomenon involving plasma, often confused for ball lightning
*Marcy Playground’s less successful followup to “Sex and Candy”
*1999 film starring Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery
*Quebec town with two exclamation points in its name
*Jersey City university whose athletes play as the Peacocks
*Oft-quoted line from Oscar Wilde’s A Woman of No Importance

4) Identify the American author of one of these poems.

*The New Colossus (1883)
*Because I Could Not Stop for Death (1890)
*The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (1915)
*The Road Not Taken (1916)
*The Emperor of Ice-Cream (1922)
*The Bridge (1930)
*The Red Wheelbarrow (1923)
*The People, Yes (1936)
*Howl (1956)
*Daddy (1965)
*On the Pulse of Morning (1993)

5) Identify one of the following.

*NHL franchise that relocated in 1995
*Violent tax protest shut down in 1794
*2000 action film starring Jet Li and Aaliyah
*Two-Hearted Ale and Goose Island are two examples of this beverage
*The most well known Berlin Wall crossing point - now a museum
*Nu-metal band best known for “Last Resort”
*Cartoon Network title character (1997-2004) known for his unsuccessful womanizing
*PepsiCo branded soft drink introduced in 1999
*Song title used by Elvis Presley in 1956 and Whitney Houston in 1998
*Indiana Pacers star; led the NBA in steals in 2018
*University located in Cleveland, Mississippi

BONUS (-1 point) - What do these have in common? (No penalty for an incorrect guess.)

6) Name one of these board games based on an excerpt from that game's Wikipedia page. There are a mix of classic and modern games included.

*The game board, which represents the island, is composed of hexagonal tiles (hexes) of different land types...
*Players are the United States and Soviet Union contesting each other's influence on the world map…
*The original version of the game in this format was based on the streets of Atlantic City, New Jersey.
*The game was invented in China more than 2,500 years ago and is believed to be the oldest board game continuously played to the present day.
*On the other grid the player records their own shots.
*...the child's mother pointed out that physical differences of humans was the whole point of the game
*Can defeat the Marshal, but only if the Spy makes the attack
*They are also dealt three Destination Ticket cards, each of which shows a pair of cities on a map of the United States and southern Canada.
*The board consists of a winding, linear track made of 134 spaces, most red, green, blue, yellow, orange or purple.
*Four five-square paths, one per colour, lead from the common outer path towards a player's Home and are designated their "Safety Zone".

7) There are ten Postal Holidays, on which regular mail delivery does not occur. Name one of them. (Note: none of these holidays always falls on a Sunday, so Easter would not be a correct answer.)


8) Identify one of these celebrities with an animal in their name (not all of these are legal names, but some are).

*Canadian rapper born Aubrey Graham
*British explorer best known for Man vs. Wild
*Comedian who set Jay Leno’s guest chair on fire in 1994
*Actress perhaps best known for playing Olivia on the Cosby Show
*Singer who covered Fly Like an Eagle for the Space Jam soundtrack
*NBA player who died under suspicious circumstances in the Pacific Ocean in 2002

*Stage name of Michael Cummings (Powerman 5000 lead singer and Rob Zombie’s brother)
*Journalist who finished $4600 in the red on Celebrity Jeopardy
*Jamaican musician who performed in a group with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh
*Recently retired Chicago White Sox announcer

9) Name an employee of Dunder-Mifflin from the American version of The Office who appears in at least five episodes.

10) Name a team that has won the World Series since 2000.

11) Name a US state capital that is also the largest city in its state population-wise.

The Eastern time zone is currently observing daylight saving time, so you probably mean 4 PM EDT. If not, then wall time would be 5 PM. I usually just say "Eastern time" and avoid having to remember.

Also, I'm pretty sure that behind my back the people I interact with at work refer to me as "that timezone jerk". But if anyone can appreciate this point, it is certainly the people on this board.

:lol: I was going to post the same thing.
There was a question at trivia a couple of weeks ago which asked what pope shared their name with a star wars character.
That served as inspiration for my pick.

My sheep radar continues to be on the fritz most of the time. I’m about ready to resort to random draws for picking which one to answer.

econgator, gamawire, casketromance, MollyQMurphy, Woof, twelvefootboy

Quebec Nordiques - 5
SenseiCAY, xabe, merica, RougeGod, True North

BrigadierSolo13, Saturnalia, shambolic, RJ Rouge

Heartbreak Hotel - 1 (singleton!)
clt013

Delta State University - 1 (singleton!)
choplakecity

Drop - squarekara

I had a really hard time deciding how to score the answer of "beer". It didn't fit the theme, the category on the form did specify that there was a theme, and the respondent did get the bonus question right. Still, I didn't explicitly say that the answer had to fit the theme, so I decided to send heppm01 a message offering a chance to clarify. I haven't received an answer back so I'm going to go ahead and count it as an incorrect answer, though if the consensus is that I should have counted it right, I'd be happy to change it.

Incorrect - heppm01 (beer), floridagator (Lee University), gameshowfandanny (Diet Coke)

As the majority of players figured out, the bonus theme was the NATO Phonetic Alphabet. The following players get a -1 bonus:

Threearruda, gamawire, SenseiCAY, gwallace2, BrigadierSolo13, Saturnalia, casketromance, MattKnowles, xabe, FleaLick, jev15, RougeGod, MarkBarrett, choplakecity, cthulhu, WhatAreDogs, RJ Rouge, Peachbox, Woof, ihavejeoprosy, True North, xxaaaxx, heppm01

Incorrect guesses include "things that would sheep if I pick them", "things that have been Triple Stumpers on Jeopardy", and "they are famous".

Standings after 5 + bonus:

1) shaquebanisa - 11
2) SenseiCAY - 12
3) Saturnalia - 14
4) floridagator, shambolic, threearruda, gwallace2 - 16
8) xxaaaxx, RJ Rouge - 17
10) clt013, ihavejeoprosy - 18
12) Rackme32, MattKnowles, True North, merica, choplakecity, jev15 - 19
18) heppm01, RougeGod - 20
20) BrigadierSolo13, cthulhu, barandall800 - 21
23) Woof - 22
24) WhatAreDogs - 23
25) MarkBarrett - 24
26) econgator, MollyQMurphy, twelvefootboy, Flealick, Peachbox, xabe, gamawire, squarekara - 25
34) casketromance - 26
35) AFRET CMS - 28
36) gameshowfandanny - 33

I'm feeling lucky to still be in fourth place after confusing Cleveland Mississippi with Cleveland Tennessee. At least I didn't say Case Western Reserve.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.
