At the risk of adding to the confusion (I don't think I've seen a Saturday round yet), here are Sunday's questions before I go to bed:

Quote:

ROUND 29

1 A Medal of Honor (highest US military award) recipient who was born outside what is now the U.S.A.

2 A gold medallist in Athens from Canada (CAN), Spain (ESP) or the UK (GBR) in an individual event

3 A county in the Canadian province of Ontario

4 A place that H.V. Morton was 'In Search of...' or 'A Traveller/Stranger in ...' (Looking for those words in the book's title)

5 A Big Band with which Billie Holiday sang vocals




Have fun!

Name:
1. A nation whose land is crossed by the Tropic of Capricorn
2. One of the Titans from Greek Mythology
3. A female astronaut (or cosmonaut, or taikonaut, or...)
4. A U2 album (not counting "Best of" and similar anthologies)
5. A country which has won multiple medals at the Athens Olympics without winning a gold medal. (If this list changes tomorrow I will count both countries on the list now and countries which are on the list at Olympics' end).

2. A US airline company.

10 points for:

10 points for:
IN (Ingolstadt)

5 points for:
IK (Ilm-Kreis)(2), IGB (St. Ingbert)(2), J (Jena) (3)

I had to disallow IBR as it's not used on German license plates.

Anne

5 points for:
Dick (2), Julian (2), Timmy (2), George (2)

ROUND 28 RESULTS

1. A Country on the Tropic of Capricorn
10: Australia, Botswana, Brazil, Chile, Mozambique
5: Argentina (2)
Disqualified: Gibraltar, Sudan

Paraguay, South Africa, and Madagascar would also have scored

2. A Titan from Greek Myth
10: Atlas, Coeus, Cronos, Metis, Mnemosyme, Phoebe, Promethius, Rhea (nicely spread out!)
Disqualified: Gaia

Sources differ slightly on the list of Titans, but the ones I could find said that Gaia was the mother of the Titans and not a Titan herself.

3. A Woman in Space
10: Kalpana Chalwa, Rhea Seddon, Helen Sharman, Janice Voss
5: Sally Ride (3), Valentina Tereshkova (2)

4. A U2 Album
10: Human Rights Day, The Joshua Tree, Under a Blood Red Sky, the Unforgettable Fire, Zooropa
5: Boy (2), Rattle and Hum (2)

5: A Country Winning multiple medals w/o a Gold in Athens
10: Colombia, Estonia, Finland, North Korea, Venezuela
5: Latvia (2), Slovenia (2)
Colombia is down to 1 medal now due to a drug disqualification, but had 2 when the round opened. North Korea leads this bunch with 5 medals, still far short of the 12 (!) Brazil got in 2000 without winning gold (6 silver, 6 bronze).

Results:
50: Lothruin
45: ElfTwinkle, Helen295, Julia103
35: LeodaVinci, Ozzz2002, SpanishLiz
30: JaneMarple
25: Gatsby722
