ANSWERS TO ROUND 13 - 10 people played

1) Name an actress that portrayed one of the Perez de la Torre sisters in the movie "Lady in the Water"

Worth 10 points
Natasha Perez, Carla Jimenez, Monique Cumen

Worth 5 points
Maricruz Henandez (3), Marilyn Torres (4)

{b]2) Name one of the species of flamingo

Worth 10 points
James's Flamingo

Worth 5 points
Andean flamingo (4), Lesser flamingo (3), Greater flamingo (2)

3) Name anyone with the name Andersson who was a passenger on the "Titanic"

Worth 10 points
Mr W. Anderson Walker, Ellis Anna Maria Andersson, Sigrid Elizabeth Andersson, Samuel Anderson, Erna Andersson, Ingeborg Andersson

Worth 5 points
Paul Edvin Anderson (2), Sigvard Andersson (2)

I accepted the name Anderson because many sites give that spelling for the Swedish family though 'Encylopedia Titanica' uses the double S spelling. I also allowed the person who had Anderson as a middle name.

All the members of the Andersson family died.

The Andersson family (parents and 5 children) was not the largest family on board. The Sage family consisted of 9 children and 2 parents. The Goodwin family consisted of parent and 6 children. Both these families also perished.

Cambodia is divided into 20 provinces (known as khalitt) and 4 municipalities. Name one of the 20 provinces.

Quite a bit of confusion here as different sites gave different spellings but I think I sorted it all out right

Worth 10 points
Kratie (Krachen), Pursat (Pouthisat), Kampang Cham, Prey Veng,Otdar Mean Cheay (Oddar Meancheay)

Worth 5 points
Stung Treng (2), Siem Rieb (2)

I received an answer "Pailin' but both Wikipedia and the CIA Factbook give it as one of the municipalities not one of the provinces.

5) Name an object that you can write with

Worth 10 points
Non-permanent marker, coal (used to write on walls in India), nib, ballpoint pen, a stick in the sand, mechanical pencil, fountain pen, soap (on window at Halloween)

Worth 5 points
Quill/feather (2)

SCORES

40 points - denni19, srini701, MaggieG

35 points - Endagine, glamel, Ren33, Mugaboo, Cinnam0n, Gatsby722
30 points - bethfay

Congratulations to denni, srini and Maggie.

Round 18 Monday
"Animal House"
10 Excellent Players !

1. Tim Matheson played Eric 'Otter' Stratton in the film ~ he was also the voice of the original "Jonny Quest", an animated adventure that appeared on TV in 1964. Besides Jonny himself, please tell me another character from that short-lived (but pretty cool) cartoon series who appeared in three episodes or more.

For 10 points:
Bandit, Dr. Zin, Jade, Dr. Benton C. Quest.
For 5 points:
Hadji (2), General Fong (2), Roger T. 'Race' Bannon (2).

On that question it was brought to my attention that one actor voiced in three episodes BUT two different characters were involved. I accepted the answer of the character as it is shown on IMDB (which is not altogether accurate, I discovered). Also, doing that had no overall effect on the scores/winners.

2. Stephen Furst was Kent 'Flounder' Dorfman in Animal House -- flounder is a tasty flatfish, of course. One of the largest markets selling fresh fish in the world is the "Tsukiji Market" in Tokyo. It is serviced by 7 wholesalers. Pick one of them!

For 10 points:
Daito Gyorui Co., Ltd.
For 5 points:
Tsukiji Uoichiba Co., Ltd. (4), Daiichi Suisan Co., Ltd. (3), Chuogyorui Co. Ltd. (2).

Three others (Tohto Suisan Kabushiki Kaisha, Sougou Syokuhin & Chiyoda Suisan Co., Ltd.). And to the player who observed: "They all sound like Japanese cartoon characters!"... yes, they certainly do - boasting long and hard-to-spell names, I might add .

3. Peter Riegert played Donald 'Boon' Schoenstein in the crazy flick, which put me in mind, rather speedily, of US frontiersman Daniel Boone. The historical Boone had a good many children as time passed. Can you kindly give me the first name of one of his offspring?

For 10 points:
Jessie, Levinia.
For 5 points:
William, James, Susannah, Nathan (all 2 each).

Israel, Jemima, Rebecca and Daniel were the others.

4. Tim Hulce was given the role of Larry 'Pinto' Kroger. Hulce is likely best remembered for his portrayal of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in the highly regarded Amadeus in 1984. This time I need to know the name of one of Mozart's operas (there are over 20 to pick from).

For 10 points:
La Clemenza di Tito, Bastien et Bastienne, Der Schauspieldirektor, Idomeneo, Mitridate Rè di Ponto.
For 5 points:
Cosi fan tutte (3), Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) (2).

5. And, finally, the popular favorite John Belushi played John 'Bluto' Blutarsky. The name Bluto is familiar as Popeye's nemesis for decades. Popeye was created by Elzie Crisler Segar in 1929 and proved so popular that The National Cartoonist Society issues an award named after him. Please choose a recipient of the 'Elzie Segar Award' from 1984 to the present.

For 10 points:
Jim Davis [Garfield], Mike Peters [Mother Goose and Grimm].
For 5 points:
Mort Walker [Beetle Bailey -and- Hi and Lois] (2), Fred Lasswell [Barney Google and Snuffy Smith] (2), Brant Parker [The Wizard of Id] (2), Tom Armstrong [Marvin] (2).

The Results!

bethfay and Mugaboo...40 points!
Howie72 and ren33...35 points!
cinnamOn, denni19, Engadine and srini701...30 points!
gemini19 and MaggieG...25 points!

Yay! As I've said before ~ you all rock! Thanks for joining in and congrats [and a point for the month] to bethfay and Mugaboo !

Tuesday, September 26

I am resuming my theme of "India" and hope to see enough interest generated among you all this time too

This round will be on Indian literature .

1. The Ramayana, written by Valmiki, is considered a very important text in the canon of Indian literature. Name a character from the Ramayana.

2. The Mahabharata is the greatest literary text from ancient India and is the longest epic poem in the world. The main protagonists of this fantastic epic are the "Pandavas". Give me the name of one of the Pandava brothers.

3. Kalidasa is one of the earliest known writers in Sanskrit and has penned some of India's classic Sanskrit literature. Name any literary work of Kalidasa (poetry or plays).

4. Rabindranath Tagore became the first Asian to win a Nobel prize, when he won the Nobel for literature in 1913 for his work on "Gitanjali". From this page here , give me the name of a work of Tagore that has been translated into English.

5. Indian English writing gained acceptance in the literary world since the 1930s when some of the finest Indian writers emerged. Raja Rao, Nirad Chaudhuri, Kushwant Singh and later on Salman Rushdie, Vikram Seth and Arundhati Roy, all were exceptional writers in their own right, but probably the one writer who symbolised Indian English writing the best was R K Narayan. Give me the name of a novel written by R K Narayan.

Remember, Help is just a mail away should you need it

This will be a short, snappy round and will close on Friday morning India time (Thursday night in the Western world), so rush in your entries now !!!
