Digest for rec.games.trivia@googlegroups.com - 10 updates in 3 topics

msb@vex.net (Mark Brader): Oct 21 02:09PM -0500

[Reposting again, new *improved* version with *two* corrections!]
 
This is RQ 310. I'd like to thank Dan Tilque for running RQ 309
and writing a contest that allowed me to win, and to complain
about Stephen Perry not entering and winning. As usual, the
winner of this contest will be the first choice to run RQ 311.
 
You can have until Friday, October 26, by Toronto time (zone -4)
to enter this one -- that gives you about 5 days 22 hours from the
original time of posting, or 5 days 9 hours from this second repost.
 
 
This one is a Quiz Quilt in the manner of Robert Jen, but not
exactly.
 
I'll repeat, with minor changes, the explanation of what that
means that I used in RQ 297. For each of questions #1-9, write
down the thing being described or referred to. All answers are
in English. (In this contest, in fact, all of them are movie or
TV series titles.)
 
If you write down the correct answers to these 9 questions in order
along successive rows of a grid, you will find the "quilt" answer
reading *either upward or downward* in one of these positions:
(1) vertically along a column, or (2) diagonally to/from one of
the left-hand corners, or (3) zigzaggily along the last letters
of the answers.
 
For example, if there were only 3 questions and the answers were
 
T W O H Y
A H
M O E S
 
then the quilt answer might be any of (1) TAM, MAT, WHO, or OHW,
reading vertically; (2) THE, EHT, MHO, or OHM, reading diagonally;
or (3) SHY, or YHS, reading the last letters. But, as they are not
(as far as I know) words or names, you could immediately eliminate
OHW, EHT, and YHS.
 
In fact the quilt answer is a *single word or name in English*.
The quiz title is a clue pointing to it.
 
 
For this contest, all the questions are in the field of entertainment.
I give a brief description of a movie or TV series, and you supply
the title. Most of the descriptions were either taken directly
from the IMDB or else edited from wording given there.
 
In alphabetical order by their names, leading cast members of
these movies and shows include Christine Baranski, Kristen Bell,
George Clooney, Matt Damon, Tony Danza, Freddie Highmore, Julianna
Margulies, Raymond Ochoa, and Reese Witherspoon.
 
 
I will give 1 point each for answers #1-9 and 2 points for the quilt,
so scores are out of 11. In case of a tie, the first tiebreaker
is who got the quilt answer; the second tiebreaker is who scored on
the hardest questions; and the third tiebreaker is who posted first.
 
Naturally, you are to answer all questions from your own knowledge
only. Please post a single message with your answers, quoting the
questions you are answering and placing your answer below each one.
 
 
1. A disgraced former NYPD officer lives with his son, an earnest,
obsessively honest NYPD detective. (TV series.)
 
2. An apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend.
(2015 movie.)
 
3. She must now provide for her family and returns to work as a
litigator in a law firm. (CBS TV series, 2009-16.)
 
4. Followup TV series to <answer 3>, with some of the same
characters.
 
5. A dead woman struggles to define what it means to be good.
(TV series.)
 
6. While in post-war Berlin to cover the Potsdam Conference, an
American military journalist is drawn into a murder
investigation. (2006 movie.)
 
7. The tumultuous early history of the Central Intelligence Agency
is viewed through the prism of one man's life. (Also a 2006
movie.)
 
8. A group of refugees given the chance to resettle in the US meet
an employment agency counselor in Kansas City, and all of their
lives are changed. (2014 movie.)
 
9. A young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome is recruited
by a prestigious hospital. (TV series.)
 
10. Quilt?

Digest for rec.games.trivia@googlegroups.com - 10 updates in 4 topics

msb@vex.net (Mark Brader): Oct 21 01:00AM -0500

These questions were written to be asked in Toronto on 2018-07-09,
and should be interpreted accordingly.
 
On each question you may give up to two answers, but if you give
both a right answer and a wrong answer, there is a small penalty.
Please post all your answers to the newsgroup in a single followup,
based only on your own knowledge. (In your answer posting, quote
the questions and place your answer below each one.) I will reveal
the correct answers in about 4 days.
 
All questions were written by members of What She Said and are
used here by permission, but have been reformatted and may have
been retyped and/or edited by me. For further information see
my 2018-07-16 companion posting on "Questions from the Canadian
Inquisition (QFTCI*)".
 
 
** Game 7, Round 9 - Entertainment - Monty Python Sketches
 
"Monty Python's Flying Circus" ran on BBC-TV from 1969 to 1974.
Over 4 seasons and 45 episodes, the troupe managed to create some
of the best sketch comedy ever written. In this round, you'll
get a description of the sketch, and you must give its *name*.
 
1. The main weapons of the always-unexpected Cardinals Ximinez,
Biggles, and Fang are fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency,
and a fanatical devotion to the Pope.
 
2. A man comes into a shop wishing to register a complaint about
a recent purchase that isn't just "pining for the fjords."
 
3. A man in a pub asks another man he refers to as "squire" if his
wife is "a goer, know-what-I-mean, know-what-I-mean? A nod's
as good as a wink to a blind bat."
 
4. A man walks into a shop, having been sitting in the public
library on Thurmon Street, skimming through "Rogue Herrys"
by Hugh Walpole when he suddenly came over all peckish so
he curtailed his Walpoling activities, sallied forth, and
infiltrated this place of purveyance to negotiate the vending
of a comestible.
 
5. Four well-dressed gentlemen sit drinking wine, smoking cigars,
and reminiscing about their humble beginnings. One lived in
a house with holes in the roof, but was lucky to have a house
because another lived in a room; but he was luckier than the
one who had to live in a corridor?
 
6. Ernest Scribbler, a writer, is found dead. Police seal off the
area, and Scotland Yard's crack inspector dies trying to remove
the cause of his death -- which is eventually weaponized to
help defeat the Nazis.
 
7. A pall hangs over a frightened city, fear of a new kind of
violence: gangs of old ladies attacking defenseless, fit
young men. Mr. Johnson's son Kevin doesn't go out anymore.
He comes back from wrestling and locks himself in his room.
 
8. She's being interviewed about her new theory about the
brontosaurus. It's her theory, the theory which is hers.
 
9. This Sergeant Major has been teaching *this* to recruits for
9 weeks, when all they want to learn is how to defend against,
say, point-ed sticks.
 
10. This sketch takes place in Hurlingham Park and features a
competition between Vivian Smith-Smythe, Nigel Incubator-Jones,
Simon Zinc-Trumpet-Harris, Oliver St. John-Mollusc, and
Gervaise Brook-Hampster. Challenges include walking in a
staright line without falling over, and jumping over three
layers of matchboxes.
 
After completing the round, please decode the rot13: Ba gur ynfg
dhrfgvba, gur nafjre vapyhqrf "gjvg". Vs lbh fnvq gung, gura tb
onpx vs arprffnel naq gryy hf whfg jung xvaq bs gjvg.
 
 
** Game 7, Round 10 - Challenge Round - Food
 
Forget love; *food* is all around us.
 
* A. National Dishes, or As Canadian as Butter Tarts
 
A1. One of the national dishes of both Australia and New Zealand
is this sweet meringue dessert. Name it.
 
A2. One of the few things they agree on: this dish of thinly
sliced, marinated meats is the national dish of North *and*
South Korea. Name it.
 
 
* B. Sports Foodie Nicknames
 
B1. What US professional sports team is nicknamed "the Twinkies"?
Full name required, like "Toronto Argonauts".
 
B2. Which US professional athlete was nicknamed after a kitchen
appliance?
 
 
* C. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, or Food at the Movies
 
C1. In this 2004 documentary, Morgan Spurlock ate nothing but
McDonald's food for an entire month. Name it.
 
C2. Meryl Streep and Amy Adams starred in this twinned story of
a TV chef and food writer, and of a food blogger. Name the

This is RQ 310. I'd like to thank Dan Tilque for running RQ 309
and writing a contest that allowed me to win, and to complain
about Stephen Perry not entering and winning. As usual, the
winner of this contest will be the first choice to run RQ 311.
 
You can have until Friday, September 26, by Toronto time (zone -4)
to enter this one -- that gives you about 5 days 22 hours from the
time of posting.
 
 
This one is a Quiz Quilt in the manner of Robert Jen, but not
exactly.
 
I'll repeat, with minor changes, the explanation of what that
means that I used in RQ 297. For each of questions #1-9, write
down the thing being described or referred to. All answers are
in English. (In this contest, in fact, all of them are movie or
TV series titles.)
 
If you write down the correct answers to these 9 questions in order
along successive rows of a grid, you will find the "quilt" answer
reading *either upward or downward* in one of these positions:
(1) vertically along a column, or (2) diagonally to/from one of
the left-hand corners, or (3) zigzaggily along the last letters
of the answers.
 
For example, if there were only 3 questions and the answers were
 
T W O H Y
A H
M O E S
 
then the quilt answer might be any of (1) TAM, MAT, WHO, or OHW,
reading vertically; (2) THE, EHT, MHO, or OHM, reading diagonally;
or (3) SHY, or YHS, reading the last letters. But, as they are not
(as far as I know) words or names, you could immediately eliminate
OHW, EHT, and YHS.
 
In fact the quilt answer is a *single word or name in English*.
The quiz title is a clue pointing to it.
 
 
For this contest, all the questions are in the field of entertainment.
I give a brief description of a movie or TV series, and you supply
the title. Most of the descriptions were either taken directly
from the IMDB or else edited from wording given there.
 
In alphabetical order by their names, leading cast members of
these movies and shows include Christine Baranski, Kristen Bell,
George Clooney, Matt Damon, Tony Danza, Freddie Highmore, Julianna
Margulies, Raymond Ochoa, and Reese Witherspoon.
 
 
I will give 1 point each for answers #1-9 and 2 points for the quilt,
so scores are out of 11. In case of a tie, the first tiebreaker
is who got the quilt answer; the second tiebreaker is who scored on
the hardest questions; and the third tiebreaker is who posted first.
 
Naturally, you are to answer all questions from your own knowledge
only. Please post a single message with your answers, quoting the
questions you are answering and placing your answer below each one.
 
 
1. A disgraced former NYPD officer lives with his son, an earnest,
obsessively honest NYPD detective. (TV series.)
 
2. An apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend.
(2015 movie.)
 
3. She must now provide for her family and returns to work as a
litigator in a law firm. (CBS TV series, 2009-16.)
 
4. Followup TV series to <answer 4>, with some of the same
characters.
 
5. A dead woman struggles to define what it means to be good.
(TV series.)
 
6. While in post-war Berlin to cover the Potsdam Conference, an
American military journalist is drawn into a murder
investigation. (2006 movie.)
 
7. The tumultuous early history of the Central Intelligence Agency
is viewed through the prism of one man's life. (Also a 2006
movie.)
 
8. A group of refugees given the chance to resettle in the US meet
an employment agency counselor in Kansas City, and all of their
lives are changed. (2014 movie.)
 
9. A young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome is recruited
by a prestigious hospital. (TV series.)
 
10. Quilt?

Perseus (hero)
Andromeda (damsel in distress)
Cassiopeia (her mother)
Cepheus (her father)
Cetus (sea monster)
Pegasus (other animal)
 
Pegasus really belongs to the Bellerophon myth, but since he was born to
Medusa (actually from her neck and/or blood) when Perseus slew her,
he's often given to Perseus as a mount. But Perseus didn't need a mount,
since he'd been given winged shoes by Hermes before starting his quest.
 
The chained lady would be Andromeda, so I'll give Mark a tiebreaking
bonus for that.
