331. it's 26. they have 16, have to hit and get a face, to make 26. if they get an ace, which DOES count as 11 or 1, they would just use it as a 1, and have 17|
Reply #844. Mar 07 11, 7:49 AM
Why would they have to hit at 16? And why couldn't they have 20 points, ask to be hit, and then draw a face card, for 30? Couldn't the answer be 30, then?|
I obviously don't know my blackjack/21. ;-)

331 is 26. I think it has been explained by theduck220 and raidersfan15 to its best. I love casino blackjack, and thought this is a good question. I specified 'dealer', because for a player, the answer might be debatable.
332 is KFC, 334 is Arnold, 335 is refurbish/brushfire, and 336 are gulfs. Believe it or not, quiz show superstar Ken Jennings sent out his weekly email test where the seventh question was exactly like 336, the Tuesday before this last Sunday.
What unusual distinction is shared by these world nations--and no others that I can find? Finland, Guinea, Honduras, Mexico, Oman, Panama, Thailand, Venezuela.
So, in my list, I left off Venezuela, but I let Ken know about Bahrain, which has since noted. My list was not inspired by his list, they were both unrelated.
Also, 309 is Aaron Rodgers #12. This question was published during the Super Bowl, so the question had no answer at publication.
I would also like to note that for 333, "Antonio" should be "San Antonio". I can't even find a city named "Antonio". Always with his title.
I would also note that the '4' in question 195 should be a '7'.
See post below.

Remember that website I was making for the questions? Guess what. It's coming. Beginning of April. This website will have all of the questions, answers, pictures, fun facts, and more. There will be one page that has all 300+ questions, and there will be individual pages for subjects like "Geography", "Humanities", or "Television".
But note that I said "answers" as well. And obviously, I can't give you the answer key to the questions and expect fairness back here on this thread. So, I give the ultimatum.
You have until March 31st for the remaining questions. There are only 17, if you look at it that way. I'll provide hints (but I think I provided most of them hints on a previous page, if someone would be willing to tell me which post it was), but around the beginning of April, all answers will be revealed. A couple of these questions have been around for 2 years, so it's time to put closure on these.
I'll still have 6 new ones each Sunday, but the race is on for these 17. Just so you know, I have a spreadsheet that lets me know which person has answered which question, and I can make a hall-of-fame for top answerers. This new website is going to be amazing.
Once again, I'd like to thank you, Funtrivia community, for being so great about this. Because you guys are so dedicated, this thread has been running for almost 2 and a half years.
Like Charlie Sheen, you guys are winning. Get cracking!

333 is playing with my mind. Can you narrow the question down a bit? Is it about team nicknames, stadiums (as dabomb referred to), or players?|
Reply #858. Mar 10 11, 7:29 PM
195 is Chevron/voucher.|
That is not the order for 187. This problem is much like the reindeer question we had a long time back.
196 is not the Krabby Patty. The Good Burger has its own burger. The thing they have in common is something that is not usually found at the restaurant.
291 has nothing to do with politics or history. A little more pop culture.
333 is not about stadiums or players.
