Title: The New Trivia Game
Post by: Suzie on September 12, 2006, 09:06:43 AM
Wo-to-ko-mo-to! It's quiz time!


The rules are... answer the last  question and ask a new one! Though they have to be questions you can look up online. So no.. "What's the colour of my uncles eyes?" stuff!  :P

Also, we'll be proposing a subject each week...starting now, the general topic is history!


I go first I go first!

What is the english weekday Thursday named after?
Title: The Quiz/Trivia Game
Post by: koko_99_2001 on September 12, 2006, 11:50:02 AM
The contemporary name Thursday comes from the Old English Žunresdęg, meaning "Day of Thunor", this being a rough Germanic equivalent to the Latin Iovis Dies, "Jupiter's Day."



What are the names of all the members of the last line of the Romanov family?

You have to ask it as a question. A bit like jeopardy. By the way, the english weekday thursday is named after Thor, that's the answer we were looking for. ;P

I think that's probably right in some dialect. I learned it as

"Tį tś."

Ok, this trivia question was answered before, but it wasn't accurate. I'm looking for the family members of the LAST Romanov family...right before the family disappeared.

And, the set of questions for the next week MUST deal with general history (any political or debatable questions will be deleted and replaced).

Well.. unofficially it's Edward D. Wood Jr, but if you talk to video game enthusiasts it's Uwe Boll, and if you talk to a fan of some source material it's whoever director movie-butchered their favourite subject of fandom.  :P

Which director has directed the most movies?   :o

Title: Re: The New Trivia Game
Post by: Yonkey on September 27, 2006, 02:46:52 PM
"Kurt Russell, Nick Nolte, Christopher Walken, Al Pacino and Perry King were all candidates for the role of Han Solo, as George Lucas wanted to stay away from any actors he had previously used in his films." 8)

What movie did the US Box Office rank as 9th overall?
Title: Re: The New Trivia Game
Post by: Petra Rocks on October 01, 2006, 10:06:11 AM
 Well, I'll be the first to admit I don't know much about movies, but aren't there a lot of ways box offices can rate movies? Rated 9th in a weekend, a year that sort of thing?

 According to this site Madagascar came in 9th in 2005 in gross income. I'm not sure if that is what you are looking for or not.

Did I change category without asking ???
