Really Hard Trivia Contest Question #20: Science

Author: Nick
Category: Money

Previous Really Hard Trivia Question:
In 1992, Vice President Dan Quayle denounced which TV sitcom character for being an unwed mother?

Correct Answer:
Murphy Brown. I still remember how they included the remarks in the series; on her TV show, Murphy Brown supposedly had a thousand potatoes dumped on Vice President Quayle’s lawn. They don’t make TV like this anymore, do they?

The current standings:
Arthur 29 (+4)
Jessica 27 (+1)
Amberlynn 16
ricemutt 14
Jono 3
luna 2
Mike 2
Luka 1
Rickie Beth 1
Tasha 1 (+1)

The rules in a nutshell:

  1. One question every hour for 24 hours.
  2. One (1) point to the first guess (correct or not). Three (3) points to the first correct guess. One (1) point to subsequent correct guesses before question closes.
  3. One guess per person per question, but you can guess once at every question!
  4. When next question is posted, previous one closes and score is tallied to that point.
  5. Score the most points to win!

In case you’re just joining us, here are the full rules of the contest. Remember, first place gets a $50 eGift Certificate and second place gets a $25 eGift Certificate.
