Easy(ish) quiz for the bored

Postby Drazo » Thu Sep 28, 2006 12:41 am

Originally I was going to have the first winner win all my ice cubes but remembering that the cash and bank MODs were removed I decided that this will just be for fun. Also this isn't a official trivia to win anything so I didn't put it in the Contest Cooler.

Rules: No posting of the answers or hints. PM answers ONLY.

First person to score 10/10 will win....uh....their name mentioned! :)

There's no time limit. If this thread dies after a long time and no one scores 10/10 I'll post the highest scorer(s).

Here we go....

1. Think of three objects named A, B and C. A was bigger than B and B is bigger than C. A is smaller than C. How is this possible?

2. You have two sets of socks - whites and blacks. They are all scattered randomly on the floor. You are picking one pair of matching socks to wear but there was a powercut so the lights go out and you can't see anything. How many socks do you pick to make sure you have a pair of matching socks?

3. What does HTML, HTTP, ADSL and FTP stand for?

4. What is a necrophidius?

5. What port number do e-mail servers use (as standard)?

6. Can you listen to an orchestra under water? (both you and the band)

7. Who is the popular music composer for many of the Final Fantasy music?

8. What is a dragoon?

9. In which country is it an offense to show the soul of your feet?

10. The planet Neptune is named after what?


Oh and do note there are trick questions in there....;)

Well I might as well put the answers up now....

1. A was bigger than B. A has shrunk.

2. 3. No matter what you pick you'll get at least two matching socks.

3. Hyper Text Mark-up Language, Hyper Text Transfer Protocol, Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, File Transfer Protocal.

4. A fictional monster usually portrayed as a snake skeleton with a human skull.

5. 25

6. No, no one can hold their breath long enough to sit down and listen.('cept maybe Mega ;))

7. Nobuo Uematsu

8. Either 'special type of cavalry' or 'a fictional warrior that has a strong relation of a dragon' would do.

9. Any budist religion or Arabian country.

10. The roman god of the sea.

No one scored anything 'cept Evl if only he sent that via PM and not posted it. :p
