2012 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 7, Day 1

Post by DadofTwins » Mon Sep 10, 2012 4:23 pm

On to the final round in a minute, but first a couple of announcements:

We have official winners for Rounds 5 & 6. Congratulations to nlw44, who posted a winning score of 423 in Round 5. The Round 6 winner is Peggles with 429 points. Congratulations.

Another announcement: I'm going to be "away from keyboard" from this Thursday morning until the following Monday, so SHC Round 7 will be played in two halves. Days 1-3 will be this week, then we'll play Days 4-6 starting next Monday. RSVP's for the TOC will be due that Friday.

Here we go.

4: These part-man and part-horse creatures are said to descend from Ixion and Nephele.

6: Older members of this half-man, half-goat race of pipe players were known as sileni, after their chief Silenus.

8: In the Divine Comedy, Beatrice and Dante fly off to heaven in on this type of creature, part lion and part eagle.

10: This Hindu deity with an elephant head and human body is often worshiped by chanting its name.

SWEET SCIENCE

3: Also called levulose, this fruit sugar is the primary ingredient in corn syrup-based sweeteners.

6: This amino acid-based artificial sweetener is sold under the brand names Equal and NutraSweet.

9: Discovered in 1976, this chlorinated sugar compound is sold in the United States under the brand name “Splenda.”

12: Benzoic sulfimide – this substance known for its metallic aftertaste – was invented in 1878 by a chemist experimenting with coal tar derivatives.
