    Sorry for the fancy Latin, I just added it incase it was a deceiving question. I wasn't sure if you meant the Largest Fish currently living or the Largest Fish Ever.

    That's Ok Richie - I just thought it was amusing that you went to all that trouble! :p

    Anyway, as promised - here is Question 8, folks! :D
    In the U2 song [i]Vertigo[/i], the lead singer Bono starts by saying: "Uno, dos, tres, catorce!" Why is this sentence [i][u]technically[/u][/i] incorrect?>

    Apologies for my little hiatus, guys :(

    The answer to Question 8 is:

    [hl=black]"Uno, dos, tres, catorce!" is Spanish for "One, two, three, fourteen!"[/hl]

    And yes, while Bono has managed to riggle his way out of that one with some artsy-waffle, I still say never trust the translators... :p It's like a girl on Eurovision a couple of years ago who sang a song in English, even though she couldn't speak a word of it. All was fine until she reached the chorus line: "And then you'll be my butt" [face_laugh] :D

    Anyways, good guess Moose (it's better to guess than not, I always say ;) ), but the point goes to Richie =D=

    Nearly there... And now [b]Question 9[/b]:
    [hr]
    Before polishing leather shoes with a woolen cloth, they can be made to look spik and span if you rub them with:

    a. banana mash
    b. apple juice [i]or [/i]
    c. half an onion

    Nope, I have to admit that neither did I :D

    But, as Moose correctly guessed (=D= ), the answer is (apparently):

    [hl=black]c. Half an onion[/hl]

    I thought it was banana mash, myself... :confused:

    And finally, [b]Question 10:[/b]
    [hr]
    In Greek mythology, the [b]Chimera[/b] is composed of parts from which three animals?

    [b]a.[/b] Lion, Goat, Snake
    [b]b.[/b] Goat, Snake, Horse
    [b]c.[/b] Horse, Fish, Eagle [i]or[/i]
    [b]d.[/b] Snake, Eagle, Lion>

    Well, that was a good round :D Of course the answer to Question 10 was:

    [hl=black]a. Lion, Goat, Snake[/hl]

    Congrats to both Moose and Richie for getting it right =D=

    Yes, sorry about that - I was going to link the trophy in properly, but it made a mess of my pretty header rule... :p

    But I'm glad you both like your respective prizes :)

    *Flicks on some disco lights and dances to the theme tune* [face_dancing] Ah, it always makes me :D

    Anyway, how is everyone? :)

    I am tired and stuff. Actually, I'm not sure what I am right now. I think I'm awake, but I could be wrong. [face_tired]

    Nope, definatley not awake - this is the Matrix after all... 8-} :D

    Actually, I was watching that the other day and was thinking that apart from the computers (lol), it hasn't aged all that badly for 10 years... *Grabs zimmer frame*
