    Moose: [face_laugh] =D= Good guess, but I'm shocked that you don't know that one! :eek:

    Of course, it is the title of a Fall Out Boy song, and it stands for...

    Gay
    Is
    Not
    A
    Synonym
    For
    ...Something (that I can't write here)...

    :p
    So, that leaves the scores at:

    Moose: 0 points

    Dar: 1/2 point

    How about a movie or book related question for the next one? :D

    I like Fall Out Boy but I've not heard that song. :(

    You're the quiz mistress, you decide what comes next. [face_not_talking]

    Really? It's on the Infinity on High album... Good song :D

    Anyway, here's Question 3!
    Who are the only two actors credited with being in all six Star Wars films?/>

    This might work better if we PM the answers.

    I'm going to say Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker as well.

    Pure coincidence, honest. :p

    Edit: it's not on my copy of the album. :(

    You trust Richie's knowledge of Star Wars...? :eek: :p

    Ok, I think you might be right... :oops:

    New rule :D Please PM your answers to my sock (which is rather originally named: KIRA-SOCK)

    For my incompetance (and as that is the correct answer), I'll give you all a point (and an extra 1/2 for Richie, as he was the first one to get it) :p So the scores are now:

    Moose: 1 point

    Dar: 1 1/2 points

    Richie: 1 1/2 points

    The next question will magically appear some time this evening. :)

    Moose: Ooo... Maybe my copy is speshul... :D Linky

    I think it's UK bonus track or something, I acquired my copy so I think I got the US version.

    Moose: Yes, that would be it - it is a UK bonus track :)

    Right - here goes Question 4!
    Once upon a time the heavenly body BPM 37093 (or 'Lucy') was a star. Today, with a diameter of 4,000 km and 10000000000000000000000000000000000 carats, it is the largest diamond in the milky way. Why is it called Lucy?

    Remember, new rules: Please PM your answer to my sock by around 7pm tomorrow, or I'll count it as an 'I don't know' :p

    Apparently, unless my sources are lying to me [face_shifty_eyes] :D

    I was just surprised that there was a diamond in space personally... :confused: (No, astronomy was never my strong point :p )

    Apologies for double posts, but the PM thing worked, and I am pleased to announce that the answer to Question 4 is...

    It was named after the Beatles song 'Lucy in the sky with diamonds'.

    Dar seems to have gone AWOL, but congrats to both Moose and Richie for getting it right =D=
    Moose: 2 points

    Dar: 1 1/2 points

    Richie: 2 1/2 points

    [face_worried] Three posts in a row? *Awaits the almighty banstick* :p

    Well, here's Question 5 (a lovely lateral thinking q... Enjoy! [face_mischief] )
    A prisoner survived ten weeks in a cell without water, and with a 20cm thick steel door between him and a fresh water well in the next cell. How?/>

    I think I worked it out, but it's too late to send in an answer now.

    Aww, Moose! :( [:D]I have to admit that lateral thinking q's are horrible. And seeing as I'm out later, I'll update a couple of hours early...

    So, congrats to Richie on getting the answer right *Begins to suspect that Richie is actually Einstein's ghost's sock, or something like that... [face_thinking] :D*

    The answer to Question 5 is:

    The door wasn't locked so he could easily get water from the well.:oops:
    Moose: 2 points

    Dar: 1 1/2 points

    Richie: 3 1/2 points


    Question 6:

    In which film did Tom Cruise play a character called Charlie Babbitt? />/>

    That question made no sense, if someone is a prisoner it means they're imprisoned and that means they can't get out.
    Still, seems I guessed right anyhow

    Yes, I'll admit that that did occur to me once I re-read the question. Maybe the other door was locked? [face_thinking] Still, that's what the official question book thingy said. [face_whistling] I was just disappointed that no one went with my initial guess of 'he had a pack of straws which he joined together...' :D

    Anyway, Question 6 - congrats again to Richie - the answer is:

    Tom Cruise played Charlie Babbitt in Rain Man
    Moose: 2 points

    Dar: 1 1/2 points

    Richie: 3 1/2 points


    Cummon' Moose and Dar - you're not gonna let Richie get away with quiz domination, are ya? ;)

    Now for Question 7 of 10:
    What is the world's largest fish?/>/>/>

    I don't know this one either. :(

    Also, I'm having serious problems with my computer, I won't be able to take part for a few days until I fix it. :_|

    First of all, apologies for my negelcting the quiz - I've not been very well :( All better now though, so back to business :cool:

    Darn [face_plain] Richie, are there any gaps in your knowledge? :p

    So, the answer to Question 7, which, unsurprisingly Richie got (with the addition of a very long and highly unpronouncable Latin name of a long dead fish :p )...

    The world's largest living fish, is the Whale Shark

    Moose: 2 points

    Dar: 1 1/2 points

    Richie: 4 1/2 points

    So, due to Moose having technical difficulties ( [:D] ) and the fact that I'm away this weekend, I'll put up Question 8 on Monday :) />/>

    Thank you! [:D]

    I'm hoping to get it fixed before Monday, but it depends on when I get the parts.
