I started this on the chat boards, but it soon developed into a contest between two people, so I decided to bring it here in the hope of getting a few more players.
The rules are quite simple. You are given a list of four items. You have to guess the odd one out, and give the right reason. If you are the first one to give the correct answer, you set the next question.
No country specific questions are allowed,ie no purely UK/US/Aus history etc, unless it is a well known subject. If the correct answer is not given within 72 hours, you must answer it yourself, and then set another one.


First question.
1.Clio
2.Orion
3.Prarie
4.Scorpio

you spelt Prairie wrong!

I think Clio is the odd one out. It is a Renault and the other three are Ford cars.

Sorry about the spelling, I get digital dyslexia.

No, it's not the Clio, and it has nothing to do with the manufacturer.

3.Prarie




Because it is not a character in Farscape?

Starting off with the bar way up there, are we?

Right one, but wrong reason, although not far off.

Hint: think old, very old.

Ok, the answer is the Prairie, because all the others are named from mythology.

Here's an easier one.

1. Queen Mary
2. France
3. United States
4. Lusitania.

Good luck.

RMG,

Could you further explain the previous "Odd Man" further. I didn't recognize a couple of names.

The answer to the new one is:

Quote:

2. France




Because all the other's are civilian cruise ships that suffered horrible fates.

I believe the Queen Mary munched a torpedo in WWII.
The Lusitania is well documented.
The United States set a trans-Atlantic speed record in the 1950's, and I want to say is now resting comfortably in Davy Jones's Locker.

Explaination of previous answers.

Clio was the muse of history

Orion, The Hunter was killed by a Scorpio(n)

Battle, again, the right answer but the wrong reason.

Think of a colour.

Duh me!

The Lusitania, United States, and Queen Mary were originally painted black.

I will guess the France was originally painted white?

Was I wrong about the "suffered horrible fates" part?

I'm going to give it to you Battle, although you picked the wrong colour.

The France is the only one that never held the Blue Riband for the fastest crossing of the Atlantic.

Over to you.

The Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building because it was bombed by Timothy McVeigh

The other three bombings were bombed by Eric Rudolph.

Not salamanders - but you are a bit warmer than the first suggestion.

That isn't any closer than salamanders.

Think about something that lives on land.

That is correct.

Included in the 37 species of cats (including the domestic cat) are the marbled cat, the sand cat and fishing cat.

Red would fit a wolf or fox but not a cat.
