Question The Unofficial Trivia Contest Thread

The Unofficial Trivia Contest Thread

How it works:
  1. A question is posted every day at 9:30AM Central time, plus or minus a couple of hours.
  2. Each question remains open for 48 hours (this may be reduced eventually based on participation)
  3. If you think you know the answer to a question, PM me (diginova) with your answer.
  4. Also in your PM, you can put in a request for the next question topic. All requests will be put in a queue and taken out one at a time.
  5. Each question has a point value from 1 to 25. If you get it right, that point value will be added to your score.
  6. No googling (or other-search-engine-ing). Use your own brain.
  7. All normal Hamumu rules must be followed.
  8. The latest question will not be grayed out.
  9. Every fifth question is worth all 25 points, and is of a format unlike all the others.
  10. Question 26 of 25 has five different answers, and is worth up to 185 points, so anyone can end up coming out on top.
  11. A perfect score (not including bonuses) is 560.

Question Re: The Unofficial Trivia Contest Thread

Since the answer (though incorrect) was posted in this thread, the question ends early. The correct answer was chlorophyll, from chloros (green) and phyllon (leaf). The next question expires 9:30 AM CDT on 28 July 2007.

Correct answers:
AtkinsSJ

Incorrect answers:
ElMikkino, Jamul

Penalties:
ElMikkino -5 (not-following-rule-ness)

Current Rankings (1 out of 25 questions):
AtkinsSJ +8
Jamul 0
ElMikkino -5



.
Value: 11 /Category: Your Choice / Expired

The answer is Mercury.

This is a Your Choice question. Choose the category you want to answer; the answer is the same for all three questions.

Astronomy: This planet has been visited by only one spacecraft, Mariner 10. Chemistry: This element was known as "hydrargyrus" in Latin. Mythology: Which Roman god was the counterpart of the Greek Hermes?

EDIT: Remember, if you think of a category you want to see, just PM it. All categories, no matter how specific or inane, will be considered (as long as a Hamumu-appropriate question can be created from said category)

I know the answers to all 3 of those.

EDIT: What do you mean ''the answer is the same for all three questions.''?

The answer to the question in all three categories is the same. Whether you choose the Astronomy, Chemistry or Mythology question, you should come up with the same correct answer.
And PM to see if you're right, Mr. Evil Random-Voting Vegetable.
