It's because this time I forgot to apply the usual manual correction
for your surname being missing from for your From: line, and also
didn't review the table before posting to notice the error.

Digest for rec.games.trivia@googlegroups.com - 12 updates in 4 topics

msb@vex.net (Mark Brader): Jul 25 12:59AM -0500

These questions were written to be asked in Toronto on 2017-03-13,
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 3 days.
 
All questions were written by members of 5 Easy Pieces 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 2016-11-26 companion posting on "Questions from the Canadian
Inquisition (QFTCI*)".
 
 
* Game 8, Round 7 - Science - Chemical Bonds
 
Here is a round on the types of chemical bonds -- a real science round!
 
1. In the simplest of the chemical bonds, one or more electrons are
equally shared by two nuclei. It can be single, double, triple,
or higher, although this is rare. Name this type of bond.
 
2. In this type of bond, an electron is transferred, resulting
in a negative charge in one atom and a positive in the other.
The bond then results from the electrostatic charge between
atoms. Name this type of bond.
 
3. In this type of bond, each atom donates one or more electrons
to be shared. Each electron is free to associate with many
atoms at once. The bond occurs due to the atoms being somewhat
positively charged while the electrons are attracted to many
atoms. Name the bond.
 
4. This type of bond is named for the element involved in it. It is
a very strong bond due to the difference in electronegativities
between the element and the others it is paired with. It is
responsible for the high boiling temperatures of many liquids.
Name the element.
 
5. A bent bond is a special type of bonding that accommodates a
specific geometry. It is found in organic compounds. What fruit
is also a name of this type of bond?
 
6. A peptide bond is formed between two molecules when the carboxyl
group of one reacts with the amino group of another. This also
causes what substance to be produced? Hint: The reaction is
known as a condensation reaction.
 
7. This chemist and Vitamin C enthusiast developed the
hybridization theory of bonding in 1931. Name him.
 
Please decode the rot13 for questions #8-10 only after you have
finished with the rest of the round.

bladeless fan. Who is he?
 
2. This renowned architect, a Toronto native, has famously designed
radical public buildings that often look like balled-up
crumpled paper. Who is he?

worldwide styling trend by putting this feature on one of
GM's makes. What was it?

music trend in the 1970s. Name this music trend.

easier to use?
