2. Frank Miller's 2007 film "300" tells the story of what ancient battle?

Answer:

"300" tells the Spartan side of the Battle of Thermopylae, in which a small group of Spartans led by King Leonidas held off a vastly larger force of Persian troops for several days in one of the greatest "last stands" in history. The Greek forces were roughly 7000, and were outnumbered by the Persians by at least 10 and possibly as many as 40 to 1 (70,000 to 300,000). Thermopylae took place in 480 and while it was a technically a defeat for the Greeks, it did buy time for the Greeks to defeat the Persians in the naval battle at Salamis. Ultimately, Greece's defeat of the Persian invasion was critical in the shaping of the next 2000 years of civilization. "300" was directed by Frank Miller and based on his graphic novel of the same name. It is done in a highly refined cartoon style and stars Gerard Butler as Leonidas. The film was released in March 2007 and was a huge hit worldwide, grossing over $450 million.

3. What is the Morse code for the number 200?

4. Alex Ferguson was the first manager in the history of the Premier League to be in charge for 800 games. Who was the second?

Answer:

In August 1996, Arsenal sacked manager Bruce Rioch, who had been in charge for a single season. At the time, Vice-Chairman David Dein had built a working relationship with Arsene Wenger, the former manager of AS Monaco, who was then employed as the manager of Japanese club Nagoya Grampus Eight. Dein had sought to hire Wenger the previous season, but had been rebuffed by the board. Following Rioch's dismissal, they were more receptive to the idea, and Wenger was unveiled as Arsenal's manager on 22 September 1996. During his time at Arsenal, Wenger won the Premier League title three times, including the famous "Invincibles", which saw the team unbeaten in the league during the whole of the 2003-04 season, as well as seven FA Cups. Wenger's 800th Premier League match in charge of Arsenal came on 28 October 2017 with a 2-1 win over Swansea City.

16. Different number systems have different base numbers, as reflected in their name. The number 150 as we normally see it is in decimal (base-10). In binary (base-2), 150 would be written 10010110. What is 150 in hexadecimal (base-16)?

The options given are all the number 150 in different bases: 1100 is 150 in base-5; 410 is 150 in base-6; 226 is 150 in base-8; and 96 is 150 in base-16. How does it work with base-16 when there are only the numbers 0-9 to deal with? Counting from (decimal) 1 to 16 would look like this: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - A - B - C - D - E - F - 10.

17. ERROR 101: Insufficient space in Room 101.
'Room 101' is a British television series in which celebrity guests try to get the things they most hate into Room 101 to be banished forever. From which George Orwell novel does this concept come?

Answer:

Regarded as one of the classics of dystopian fiction, George Orwell's 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' presents a world in which much of society in the vast Oceania region is governed by a totalitarian, all-seeing organisation known as the Party. Heading the Party is the mysterious Big Brother (hence the famous phrase, "Big Brother is watching you"), and the novel's protagonist, Winston Smith, attempts to rebel against Big Brother, and indeed the Party, in an effort to avenge the disappearance of his family during his childhood. The concept of Room 101 also features in the novel, and is said to be the place where all the worst things in the world are sent. This inspired a radio series in the early 1990s on BBC Radio 5 in which celebrity guests discussed the things they disliked most about the world and had them sent to Room 101, where they would be removed from existence. The radio series made the jump to television in 1994, hosted by Nick Hancock, who also hosted the radio version. Paul Merton took over from Hancock in 1999 until the series ended in 2007. In 2012, the show was resurrected, with a new host, Frank Skinner, and a revised format, in which three guests argued against one another in attempts to get their item/s banished to Room 101.

The others on the list measure as follows: Niagara Falls is 175 ft (53m); the tallest tree on Earth is probably the Coast Redwood at about 379 ft (115m); and The Great Pyramid is 455 ft (139m).

26. The Emperor Charlemagne was crowned in the year 800AD, but on which Christian feast day?

Answer:

Charlemagne, also known as Charles I or Charles the Great, was born in 748, the eldest son of Pepin the Short, King of the Franks. Charlemagne succeeded his father in 768, and subsequently became King of the Lombards in 774. In 799, Pope Leo III came under attack by supporters of his predecessor, Adrian I, and fled to the protection of Charlemagne in the city of Paderborn. In November 800, Charlemagne and the pope returned to Rome, where Charlemagne convened a synod, or council, to discuss the problems that were affecting the church. In an effort to restore his position, during the Christmas mass on 25 December, while Charlemagne knelt at the altar in prayer, Pope Leo crowned him as "Imperator Romanorum" or Emperor of the Romans. This saw the establishment of the Western Roman Empire, which eventually came to be known as the Holy Roman Empire. Charlemagne's reign lasted until his death in 814.

Answer:

Most Bible commentaries accept that Job's age when his troubles began was 70. Job 42:16 states, "After this, Job lived a hundred and forty years." So he would have been around the age of 210 when he died. Methuselah lived to the age of 969, Moses to the age of 120, Noah to 950, and Abraham to 175. Jesus was crucified at the age of 33.

Paul Gross is a Canadian actor, singer, writer and director probably best known for his role in "Due South" and for his 2008 film "Passchendaele", which he wrote, co-produced, directed and starred in. The other actors all played parts in the series.

30. In which sport is a score of 300 regarded as 'perfect'?

Answer:

It is achieved by rolling strikes in ten successive frames of a single game and then two more after that. Ten strikes in a row only gives a total of 270 points, and a player who throws that gets two extra chances for strikes to reach 300. So, to get 300, you need to throw 12 successive strikes.
