ANSWER TO ROUND 25 - 7 people played

1) In Norse Mythology, one of the offspring of the god Loki

No answer was worth 10 points

Worth 5 points

Fenrir wolf (3), Jormungard (2), Sleipnir (2)

Not mentioned his daughter Hel, and his two sons by the goddess Sigyn - Narvi and Vali

2) You are going away for a night, name one thing that you would put in an overnight bag

Worth 10 points
A belt, toothbrush, extra cigarettes, razor, perfume, clean socks, alarm closk

3) The name of an island in the Chatham Islands (New Zealand). This incudes the collective name given to group of rocks.

Worth 10 points
Star Keys, Mangere Island, South-East Island (Rangatira), The Pyramid

Worth 5 points
Pitt ISland (2)

I had one answer of Owenga but that seems to be a town on Chatham Island.

Islands not mentioned included the Forty-Fours, the Sisters, and the Castle.

4) A mammal that was 'discovered' (i.e. became known to Western science) in the twentieth century.

Worth 10 points
Large-antlered muntjac, sun-tailed monkey, Eomaia, Kouprey, Hystricognath, Alpine wooly rat, Kitti's hog-nosed bat

Hystricognath is actually a family of porcupine-like rodents from Vietnam and Laos. Though I asked for an individual species I allowed this answer because it seems that there has not yet been any classification on the species level.

Eomaia was a species that did indeed first became known to science in the 20th century. It has been extinct for millions of years but, as I didn't exclude fossil species, I had to allow it.

The Kitti's hog-nose bat is the smallest known mammal. Before it was discovered the pygmy shrew held that record.

5) The name of any ambassador in the sci-fi TV series "Babylon 5". This does not included un-named ambassadors (for example, I won't accept "the Drazi ambassador" as an answer)

Worth 10 points
Ulkesh Naranek (Vorlon ambassador - the second Kosh), Kalika (Abbai ambassador who appeared in one episode)

Worth 5 points
Kosh Naranek - Vorlon ambassador (3), Londo Mollari - Centauri ambassador (2)

Those not mentioned included
G'Kar (Narn ambassador), Delenn (Minbari ambassador), Sinclair (commander of Babylon 5 in first season, he later became the Earth ambassador to Mimbar), Vir Cotto (he was, for a short time, the Centauri ambassador to Mimbar)

I love this show BTW

I'm going to leave Round 27 open until ozzz gets back and has a chance to answer. It just wouldn't feel right to post a Results list without his inclusion on it .

Whew! Round 27 is closed now. One of you broke my heart on this one. Results in more hours than I'd like to admit to. Welcome back, ozzz, and the extension of time got a few more players than I expected. All in now; results eventually.

Round 27

Didn't like this Round much. I had to disallow too many answers. I hate that (if only I'd noticed them before I closed it we could have all found the right page!). Anyway...

A Member Of The Tanner Household In That Icky TV Show "Full House"

For 10 Points:
D.J. (Donna Jo) Tanner, Danny Tanner, Nick Katsopolis (one of the twins), Michelle Tanner, Comet (the dog - and I loved that answer! ).

For 5 points:
Stephanie Tanner(5!), Joey Gladstone(2).

Let me say that I'm not a fan of this show but the reruns show at 5 in the AM. So I occasionally watch. I also occasionally puke on the sugary sweetness of it. Harmless, though, I guess.

A Novel By The Great Carson McCullers

The key word there being 'novel'.

No 10 pointers!

For 5 points:
Reflections In A Golden Eye(3), The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter(2), The Member Of The Wedding(2), Clock Without Hands(2).

Disallowed a few. While they are McCullers projects "The Square Root Of Wonderful" was a play and "The Mortgaged Heart" was a posthumous collection of short writings. Neither novels. One of our players live where Carson McCullers was born. How cool!

A Feature Film Directed By Jane Campion

For 10 points:
After Hours, An Angel At My Table, Peel (AKA An Exercise In Discipline), Sweetie.

For 5 points:
In The Cut(2), The Portrait Of A Lady(2), A Girl's Own Story(3).

I couldn't find "Loaded" anywhere. Correct me if I'm wrong. So that answer was not allowed.

A Name Added To The Viet Nam Memorial Wall In 2003

For 10 points:
SP4 James Mark Rogers, Frank Luther Huddleston, PFC William Joseph Cannell.

For 5 points:
SFC Dwaine Usry McGriff(3), SPC Kevin John Joyce(3)

That's all of them that were added that year. Sorry, but I had to disallow all other answers. Thank God that Wall is there, by the way. My goal in life, before my lights go out, is to just touch those names.

Something You Do/Use To Get Rid Of That Ghastly Morning Breath

For 10 points:
Clean/Brush your teeth, Swallow a Berocca tablet [it's real, but I never heard of it before], Brush your tongue (LOL - but that really does work), Drink coffee, Drink lots of water, Chew gum, Chew parsley!

For 5 points:
Mouthwash/Gargle(5)

The Scores!

ElfTwinkle & Polaris101 - 40 points!

LeoDaVinci, ren33, Santana2002 - 35 points!

Kuu, littlewoman2 - 30 points!

bracklaman, cinnamOn, Mugaboo, spanishliz - 25 points!

ozzz2002 - 20 points!

Great job all! Sorry about my sluggish attention to the answers flowing in.

Round 30 will be open for at least another day or 2.

It's come to my attention that some people are stuck on question 2 as it appears to them that there are not the required number of answers available for the question to be valid.

I have added a link (in the post of my Round 30 questions) to a site that includes the titles of all 4 books that can be used as answers for the question. On some sites either only 3 books appear, or the 4th book appears but is listed as forthcoming --- the 4th book was just recently released, and is a valid answer to the question.
