Digest for rec.games.trivia@googlegroups.com - 7 updates in 3 topics

msb@vex.net (Mark Brader): Apr 21 09:18PM -0500

These questions were written to be asked in Toronto on 2016-12-06,
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 the Misplaced Modifiers
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*)".
 
 
** Final, Round 10 - Challenge Round
 
Challenge: http://www.eskimo.com/~scs/msb/f-10/chal.jpg
 
 
* A. Famous Transsexuals
 
A1. *He* was convicted for violating the US Espionage Act in
2013 after disclosing sensitive material to WikiLeaks.
*She* is now serving 35 years. Name her.
 
A2. She wrote about her transformation in her memoir "Conundrum"
in 1974, but she's mostly known as an award-winning travel
writer of such titles as "Venice" (1960) and the "Pax
Britannica" trilogy. Name her.
 
A3. After becoming a woman in 1976, she sued the US Tennis
Association for barring her from playing in the US Open
and Wimbledon. Name her.
 
 
* B. Chinese Movie Directors
 
You may answer with the surname alone, or given name and surname
in either order. Each name you give must be correct.
 
B1. Who directed "Lust, Caution" and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden
Dragon"?
 
B2. Who directed "The Grandmaster" and "Chungking Express"?
 
B3. Who directed "Raise the Red Lantern" and "House of Flying
Daggers"?
 
 
* C. Kings of Sport
 
C1. Name the current Seattle Mariners pitcher whose nickname
is King.
 
C2. Name the current New York Rangers goalie who is known as
the King.
 
C3. Which golfer was known as the King?
 
 
* D. History of Mesopotamia
 
D1. Step pyramids were built for religious reasons by the ancient
Sumerians, Babylonians, Elamites, Akkadians, and Assyrians.
What other name, derived from ancient Akkadian, are these
step pyramids known by?
 
D2. "If a son strike his father, they shall cut off his fingers."
This law is part of a code issued by a Babylonian king whose
name means "the kinsman is a healer." What is that name?
 
D3. In the fourth millennium BC, the Sumerians invented a writing
system used by all the great Mesopotamian civilizations for
the next 3,000 years. The name that we know this system by
derives from the Latin word for "wedge". What is that name?
 
 
* E. Soups and Stews
 
E1. New England clam chowder is typically made with a cream
or milk base. Manhattan clam chowder replaces the cream
with what ingredient?
 
E2. The Louisiana stew known as gumbo is often defined by
its thickening agent. There are three possible thickeners:
a browned roux ["roo"], sassafras leaves known as filé
["FEE-lay"], and... which plant of the mallow family?
 
E3. This common soup of Thailand is characterized by distinct
spicy and sour flavors. Ingredients usually include
lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, galangal, lime juice,
fish sauce, and crushed chili peppers. Name it.
 
 
* F. False Friends -- Spanish and English
 
These Spanish words look a lot like English words, but in fact
they mean something quite different.
 
F1. We know what it means to be "embarrassed" in English.
What does it mean in Spanish to be "embarazada"
["em-ba-ra-SA-da"]?
 
F2. If a Spanish-speaker says that he hopes he is not "molesting"
you, he probably isn't referring to sexual abuse. What does
the Spanish verb "molestar" {"mole-est-AR"] mean?
 
F3. In English, a "bomber" drops bombs. In Spanish, what does a
"bombero" ["bom-BAIR-oh"] do?

Was it the halfback you ask about last time, and had 15? I guess the
fullback has 30 then.

I would call it just Schwarzwald, but I am not English.

In Swedish it's "mened". I guess that I have an occasion to extend my
English vocabulary with another word.

Thanks for spotting that Mark. I guess it was caused by copying and pasting cells with absolute references.
 
When I get time I'll go through all the my quizzes for this year (only) and post the amended scores if the top 3 placegetters have changed.

Mark Brader (in 2011):
 
In the IMDB there are 150 listings for movies with 41 different
one-character primary titles. The most popular of these titles
is 4, which they show being used 11 times from 1995 to 2011
inclusive, including three times in 2005; the most popular letter
is X, used 10 times. There are one-character titles using all
10 digits; 25 of the upper-case letters in our alphabet, all except D;
the lower-case letters i (4 times) and c; the AE-ligature; the @ sign;
the ? mark (5 times); and, as noted, the $ sign.
 
"Movie" here includes documentaries and shorts, but not direct-to-video
releases or TV productions of any kind.
 
In 2017 there are 315 listings for 52 different one-character primary
titles. 4 and X are still the most popular numerical and alphabetic
titles, but now they have been used 20 times each -- there were four
movies titled X in 2016 alone, all of them shorts. I'm not going to
enumerate all the others.

Digest for rec.games.trivia@googlegroups.com - 9 updates in 3 topics

msb@vex.net (Mark Brader): Apr 18 09:21PM -0500

These questions were written to be asked in Toronto on 2016-12-06,
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 the Misplaced Modifiers
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*)".
 
 
** Final, Round 9 - Canadiana
 
Canadiana: http://www.eskimo.com/~scs/msb/f-9/cana.jpg
 
 
* Controversial Pipelines
 
1. What is the name of the proposed pipeline that is to run from
Bruderheim, Alberta, to Kitimat, BC?
 
2. What Alberta town is to be the northern terminus of the Keystone
pipeline?
 
3. What energy giant is behind the Trans-Mountain pipeline?
 
 
* Defunct Airlines
 
In each case, name the defunct Canadian airline whose plane is
depicted.
 
4. http://www.eskimo.com/~scs/msb/f-9/air/4.jpg
5. http://www.eskimo.com/~scs/msb/f-9/air/5.jpg
6. http://www.eskimo.com/~scs/msb/f-9/air/6.jpg
 
 
* Inventions
 
In each case, identify the Canadian invention described.
 
7. Using stretchy, waterproof polyethylene film, Harry Wasylyk
of Manitoba and Larry Hansen of Ontario invented this in 1950.
Union Carbide Company bought the idea and brought it into homes
in the late '60s.
 
8. Don Hings invented what he called the "packset" in 1937.
When Canada declared war on Germany 2 years later, he went to
Ottawa to redevelop this communication device for military use.
 
9. In 1854, Nova Scotia inventor Samuel McKeen created a device
that measured distance with every revolution of a carriage wheel.
Ben Franklin and others had worked on similar devices, but it
was McKeen who got it right.
 
 
* Mayors
 
These questions ask for the mayors who were in office when the
original game was played. On each one, if you just give a name,
then it must be that mayor's name. Alternatively, you can put the
words "current mayor" and name the person who is now in office.
If the same people described in the questions are still in office,
then it won't matter whether you say "current mayor" or not.
 
10. Calgary has an awfully hip mayor for what is often considered
a square town. Name him.
 
11. The mayor of Montreal served as a Member of Parliament from
1997 to 2013, including a stint as Minister of Immigration
under Jean Chrétien. Name him.
 
12. Name the mayor of Vancouver. He has held the job since 2008.
 
 
* Hockey Books
 
13. A retired player is the title character of "King Leary",
a novel that won the 1988 Leacock Award and the 2008 edition
of Canada Reads. Name the author.
 
14. Which former goalie wrote "The Game", and is credited with an
assist on Rick Salutin's play "Les Canadiens"?
 
15. Which broadcaster co-wrote with Kristie McLellan Day the book
"Cornered: Hijinks, Highlights, Late Nights and Insights"?
 
16. Extra question for fun, but for no points: one non-fiction
book about hockey was written by a Prime Minister of Canada
*while in office*. Name the book or the author, or if you
can, both.
