7. Name a US city with a population of at least 100,000 that borders a city in another state or district by land or water.

This, along with the next question, garnered the majority of the drops. Music and Geography are far and away my favorite topics, but I do take this sort of feedback into consideration in planning future TDs (my music question also was mass dropped in my last TD).

Also, somebody asked whether Kansas City, Kansas would have been acceptable, and the answer is yes.

I was curious how well Money for Nothing would do, because a few months ago, one of the questions in the LL Rock n Roll Minileague asking to identify a still from the video scored low.

And we've come to our final question, where we separate the sheep from the goats...

11. Animals (unnamed)
Name an animal mentioned in the Bible (no Apocrypha, and real animals only, so no dragons, leviathans, unicorns, etc.).


Apparently many of you jumped at the opportunity to submit "ass" as a TD answer (I think only one person actually put "donkey"). Also, I didn't even think about the logistical problems about having a question where "sheep" is a legitimate answer. Thankfully, that didn't sheep. That would have been a nightmare to sort through.

Donkey/ass - 9

Frogs - 4
ReinholdGoldthwait, SenseiCAY, qwerqwerqwer, Saturnalia

Raven - Woof
Peacock - xxaaaxx
Fox - floridagator
Whale - roey
Bull - ChexMix

A week after finishing on the podium, I was one point out of last place heading into the final question. Alas, a singleton foiled my chances at an anti-podium finish.

First time playing so I'm just glad I didn't finish all the way at the bottom! I have to admit, I'm surprised black olives was a co-sheep on the Domino's question.

All in all, a great quiz!

Woo-hoo, penultimate place! Good mix of sheep and singletons and the song question was the only one I had no knowledge of! Thanks, Ironhorse!

Thanks for hosting! As a side fun trivia note, the greyhound is the only breed of dog that is *explicitly* named in the Bible! File it away!
