    Okay, here at last are the questions. As always you can ask for a clarification on any question, but I make no promises to answer. [face_mischief]

    The game begins now and ends at 11:59 PM (board time) on Sunday, July 15th. Remember to submit the answers to me by PM only. Also, only one answer sheet will be accepted, so DO NOT turn in any answers until you are finished.

    A word for those who are spectating this game. It's appreciated if you taunt the players about answers you know, but actually giving them the answers is extremely frowned upon. Similarly, if you find that you're the subject of a question in any way, feel free to sell the answer to the highest bidder, but don't give it away for free. :p

    Now, on with the game.

    Question #13 in the "People and History" section has been amended and should now be correctified.


    For question #6 in "People and History," Herman considers reviewers and editors as separate groups. So, the question asks for reviewers only.

    Answers known to me: 1

    This is an improvement. Last year (when I was playing) the total answers I knew offhand was somewhat less than 0 :p

    The art of being full of oneself:

    *All talk and bluster

    *Full of yourself with nothing to back it up.

    Hehe, I'm glad I decided to wait a year before I play; I only know one of the answers. [face_laugh] It'll be fun watching everyone scurry around, though. :p

    :eek: =D= As evil as ever, Herman, if not more!

    Answers I know immediately where to find: Four or five

    Answers I know immediately: One (in fact I know two answers for it ;))

    It always baffles me how you even make this thing. But it's still gotta be easier than trying to answer them. :p

    Whao!?! :eek:

    Ok... these questions, Herman... [face_hypnotized] [face_hypnotized] [face_hypnotized]

    I thought I'd have trouble being so new, but I've actually surprised myself a little, which is good. :)

    There are two questions I wanted to clarify with you, though. Do I do it in this thread, or send my question in a PM?

    PM works best, since that has the least possibility of helping others. [face_devil]


    If you manage to point out a mistake on my part (curse you, Evil Twins!!!) I'll post the correction in the thread for everybody.
