Round 1 Results

12 players

1. A synonym for the word "fool".
10 points - sucker, chump, nitwit, jester, lamebrain, drongo, schlemiel, oaf, dupe, nincompoop
5 points - buffoon(2)

2. A well-known April Fool's hoax
10 points -
*The April 1998 issue of the New Mexicans for Science and Reason newsletter contained an article claiming that the Alabama state legislature had voted to change the value of the mathematical constant pi from 3.14159 to the 'Biblical value' of 3.0. Before long the article had made its way onto the internet, and then it rapidly made its way around the world, forwarded by people in their email. It only became apparent how far the article had spread when the Alabama legislature began receiving hundreds of calls from people protesting the legislation. The original article, which was intended as a parody of legislative attempts to circumscribe the teaching of evolution, was written by a physicist named Mark Boslough.
*In 1999 the Today program on BBC Radio 4 announced that the British National anthem ("God Save the Queen") was to be replaced by a Euro Anthem sung in German. The new anthem, which Today played for their listeners, used extracts from Beethoven's music and was sung by pupils of a German school in London. Reportedly, Prince Charles's office telephoned Radio 4 to ask them for a copy of the new anthem. St. James Palace later insisted that it had been playing along with the prank and had never been taken in by it.
*In 1994 a press release began circulating around the internet claiming that Microsoft had bought the Catholic church. The press release, which bore a Vatican City dateline, noted that this was "the first time a computer software company has acquired a major world religion." The release then quoted Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates as saying that he considered religion to be a growth market and that, "The combined resources of Microsoft and the Catholic Church will allow us to make religion easier and more fun for a broader range of people." Under the terms of the deal, Microsoft would acquire exclusive electronic rights to the Bible and would make the sacraments available online.
*In 1998 Burger King published a full page advertisement in USA Today announcing the introduction of a new item to their menu: a "Left-Handed Whopper" specially designed for the 32 million left-handed Americans. According to the advertisement, the new whopper included the same ingredients as the original Whopper (lettuce, tomato, hamburger patty, etc.), but all the condiments were rotated 180 degrees for the benefit of their left-handed customers. The following day Burger King issued a follow-up release revealing that although the Left-Handed Whopper was a hoax, thousands of customers had gone into restaurants to request the new sandwich. Simultaneously, according to the press release, "many others requested their own 'right handed' version."
*Australian radio station Triple J breakfast show co-host Adam Spencer announced in 1999 that he had a journalist on the line at the site of a secret IOC meeting and that Sydney had lost the 2000 Summer Olympics.

5 points -
*In 1957 the respected BBC news show Panorama announced that thanks to a very mild winter and the virtual elimination of the dreaded spaghetti weevil, Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop. It accompanied this announcement with footage of Swiss peasants pulling strands of spaghetti down from trees. Huge numbers of viewers were taken in, and many called up wanting to know how they could grow their own spaghetti trees. To this question, the BBC diplomatically replied that they should "place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best."(3)
*In 1996 the Taco Bell Corporation announced that it had bought the Liberty Bell from the federal government and was renaming it the Taco Liberty Bell. Hundreds of outraged citizens called up the National Historic Park in Philadelphia where the bell is housed to express their anger. Their nerves were only calmed when Taco Bell revealed that it was all a practical joke a few hours later. The best line inspired by the affair came when White House press secretary Mike McCurry was asked about the sale, and he responded that the Lincoln Memorial had also been sold, though to a different corporation, and would now be known as the Ford Lincoln Mercury Memorial (2)
*In 1976 the British astronomer Patrick Moore announced on BBC Radio 2 that at 9:47 AM a once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event was going to occur that listeners could experience in their very own homes. The planet Pluto would pass behind Jupiter, temporarily causing a gravitational alignment that would counteract and lessen the Earth's own gravity. Moore told his listeners that if they jumped in the air at the exact moment that this planetary alignment occurred, they would experience a strange floating sensation. When 9:47 AM arrived, BBC2 began to receive hundreds of phone calls from listeners claiming to have felt the sensation. One woman even reported that she and her eleven friends had risen from their chairs and floated around the room(2)

3. A movie with the word "fool" in the title
10 points - A Fool There Was; Hero, Lover, Fool; Fool's Gold; Fool for Love; Kissing a Fool; The Jazz Fool; The Fool Killer; Henry Fool
5 points - You Can't Fool Your Wife (2); Bert Rigby, You're a Fool(2)

4. A song with the word "fool" in the title
10 points - Fooled Around and Fell in Love, Fool tumhe bheja hai Khat main, Everybody's Somebody's Fool, Fool for You, American Fool, Fooling Yourself, A Fool for Your Stockings, Talk Show Created the Fool, Love's Made a Fool of You, What a Fool Believes, Fooling Yourself, Fool to Cry

I immediately thought of "What Kind of Fool Am I?" and "Fool on the Hill" when I wrote this question -- I think I'm ancient...

5. A "fool" quote
10 points - "To the wise, life is a problem; to the fool, a solution." (Marcus Aurelius)
"Lord, what fools these mortals be!" (Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare)
"Impossible is a word only to be found in the dictionary of fools." (Napoleon Bonaparte)
I am a fool ,I know, for loving and for saying so, in whining poetry ( John Donne)
“You sometimes have to answer to a woman according to her womanishness, just as you have to answer a fool according to his folly”(George Bernard Shaw)
A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees. (William Blake)
“Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something.” (Plato)
Any fool can tell the truth, but it requires a man of some sense to know how to lie well. (Samuel Butler)
You can fool some of the people all the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on.
(George W. Bush)

5 points - "It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."(Mark Twain) (3)

Round 13 (Thursday)

We are heading to Florida today...

1. First stop? Miami, of course! The NASDAQ 100 Tennis Open just finished up there. Tell me a competitor in it whose surname begins with 'V'.

2. Hurricanes are regular visitors in Florida. According to the World Meteorological Organization 5 hurricane names, due to their devastation, will be retired (Dennis, Katrina, Rita, Stan and Wilma). Come 2011 the list will be recycled and those names of hurricanes will be replaced. Pick a name that will replace the retired ones.

3. Florida is a nice place to retire, so they say. You might as well do that with fellow retirees, don't you think? Name one of the top 10 cities in Florida (population +5000) with the oldest [average] citizenship.

4. What with all the touring about, you find that your back hurts. Let's stop into the Acupuncture & Massage College/Oriental Medicine school (it's in Miami, too). Pick a course you might take there in your first or second semester(s). No Supervised Clinic classes, please.

5. Key West, Florida was a favorite place of Ernest Hemingway (even though he was born in Illinois and died in Idaho). His first published book came out in 1923 in Paris and was called "Three Stories and Ten Poems". Pick a title of one of those stories or poems.

This might be a cumbersome list (it kinda looks that way ). If you need links don't hesitate to ask.
This'll close up on Sunday.

Sorry I am a bit late with Round 12

Quote:

Round 12

1) The movie "March of the Penguins" (La Marche de l'empereur) was narrated in many different languages. Name any of the narrators.

2) Make a word of 5 letters of more from the letters in TOLERANT. The letter T can be used twice.

3) Name a method of cooking eggs

4) Give me a major camera brandname

5) Name one of the world's Great Train Journeys





EDITED TO EXPLAIN QUESTION 5

Great Train Journeys are those taken in luxury trains usually by tourists as a holiday. There are usually stops on the way to take passengers to see tourist attractions.

Round 6 is now closed but as I am too tired to do anything else tonight, you will have to remain on the edge of your seats until tomorrow.

What I can say is that we have two winners, unless someone wants to through a spanner in the works and send me some answers while I am sleeping.


Edited to include a word that I missed out originally. This shows how tired I am.
