Subject: Daily Trivia by Merry & Pippin

Written By: Tam on 08/06/09 at 11:13 am

Daily Trivia Tournament

Hey Everyone!

A couple of years ago I was introduced to this general knowledge trivia website by none other than our very own FussBudgetVanPelt!

I used to go everyday, but then of course things happen and I forgot all about it. Well, last month I started playing again. Mooster and I are about the only ones still doing the trivia, so I thought that it would be something to get us all into again. Just click the link, create an account and then take the trivia test. There is a new one every day and it takes all of maybe 1 minute to complete. There are different skill levels, from easy to super hard (or something like that) and you accumulate points for each daily trivia you complete. You also win trivia fun bucks, but I have never really dug deep to find out what they can be used for.

So if you are looking for something to do each morning when you get up, or each night before you go to bed - take the trivia test! You just might learn something new!!! 8)

Thanks again FussBudget!!!


Tam

This time for me 10:00am to 10:30am is a stack time on inthe00s, so I was hoping to keep myself there until things start moving again.

Fun Trivia sets the questions each day - it has nothing to do with Don. He is just a very knowledgeable person. Also from what I remember when I used to play regularly, each person is given a different set of questions to answer daily that are randomly generated by the site.

Congrats on your score  :)

Seriously?
I didn't know that it was a different set of questions for each player! I learned something new today! Haha!
And I also learned that it isn't Don who sets them up! Good to know. 8)

I am usually pretty fast, but too fast and make careless mistakes. Plus I have "dial-up service" and I lose a few seconds there as well. But it's a fun quiz though, and at least yesterday I didn't have US college football question!

I got 9 right in 113 seconds---why? Because my daughter decided to come in and talk to me
about freakin' Donovan McNabb (Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback,) just as I started taking the
quiz. I asked her if she could wait 1 minute, no ------ she had to say her piece then and there.
Her distraction cost a correct answer and a lot of time.

Before anyone gets the idea about how lousy a dad I am for not taking the time with my daughter;
she is 24 years old, she lives in my house and I told prior to me taking the quiz that I was going to
take the quiz. >:(

I got 10 right today but I needed extra time, 74 seconds I believe. I was asked how many colors are in a
rainbow. To be sure I was right I started singing the rainbow song from Captain Noah, a children's show
from my youth. (Red and Yellow and Pink and Green, Purple and Orange and Blue. I can sing a rainbow,
sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow too.)

Until recently I assumed we all got the same quiz.  There's some discussion a couple of pages back about this.  There's some sort of pool of questions for the various 'themes'.  I don't know how often they get updated, I recall getting the same question twice about a week or so apart.

Today, as my last quiz I am going to do, I answered option 3 to each question.
Somehow I got 6. The odds say I should get between 2 and 3 right.


I was going to do the same thing, I figured the silliness was just too much. Then I got to thinking, so what if
it's a little silly it doesn't hurt anything and it's not like the trivia world will be knocking down my door to play
in a multimillion dollar tournament. It's just fun to see how many I can answer, and who knows, maybe I'll learn
a thing or two along the way.

I took a little longer than I should have because of spelling. The question:

I know the answer is tires but the answer grid had tyres, I thought it might be a trick question but it was the only
answer to fit so I guessed right.

Technically, I suppose none of the answers would have been correct. Venomous snakes use venom. Poisonous snakes - i.e. the snake itself is poisonous - are very rare (I believe there are only three species).

I agree, a group of bananas is called a hand and each banana is called a finger, not necessarily lady fingers ---
just fingers.

It's rather confusing. As I understand it, there's "ladyfinger" (small banana) and "lady's finger" (apparently some type of plant, but it can also be okra - if you're British). Then there's a sort of sponge finger known as "ladyfinger" in US, but spelt as "lady's finger" in UK.
I could be wrong, though. :-\\

I had this question, had it correct but changed it because it is actually incorrect.

Harry M. Stevens of Niles, Ohio was the first person to think of wrapping up a frankfurter in a piece of bread and calling it this?

The answer they gave is Hot Dog, Stevens wasn't the first to call it a hot dog. T. A. Dorgan, a sports cartoonist, drew a cartoon
depicting a Daschund on a bun and called it a hot dog. Stevens saw the cartoon and started referring to them as hot dogs, this
was in the early 1900's. There is written record of the term hot dog for a frankfurter in the late 1880's and in 1895 a Yale newspaper
ran a humorous poem about someone who bites the dog when it's placed in a bun.

So did Stevens think of it.....no, but when the legend becomes fact ---- print the legend.

Ah, now that might have been a tricky question depending on the answers given.  Camberwick Green is part of a community of villages/towns, each with their own separate show.  I might have muddled up whether it was Camberwick Green, Trumpton or Chigley that a particular character belonged to.

Though I can't remember the other three options given, I'm quite sure neither Trumpton nor Chigley was amongst them. So no chance of muddling up there. ;)

I guess this would be tough for those outside the U.S. but the Deadman's Hand, as legend would have it, is the hand
that Wild Bill Hickok was holding at the time of his murder, hence the name.

10. You should wash your dog with a shampoo that won't dry their coats.

What is the correct way to write this sentence?

Your Answer: The sentence is correct; no changes are needed
The correct answer was You should wash your dog with a shampoo that won't dry its coat..

"Dog" is singular, so "their" must be the singular "its." Another correct way to write this sentence would be, "You should wash your dogs with shampoos that won't dry their coats." In this case, all words are plural.

"Dog" is singular, so "their" must be the singular "its." Another correct way to write this sentence would be, "You should wash your dogs with shampoos that won't dry their coats." In this case, all words are plural.

I've not had that particular version of the question, but have had two or three of the same sort.  Something about ladies with ribbons on a hat springs to mind

Anyway I don't like that sort of question - it takes too long to read all the options and consider them.

Agreed.
There is no way a person could get under 35 seconds with questions like that - not without just outright guessing. ;)

Unless of course, they have been playing the games for so long they know every single question and answer!!! ::)

Perhaps a friend from across the pond could clarify this for me. I thought it was a trick question,
but now I think it just may be erroneous.

The Question:

Which of these did not have a Celtic history?

A) Ireland
B) Scotland
C) Wales
D) England

I thought the Celts spread throughout Great Britain and even Northen Europe. This is where I thought trick question.
I chose Wales only because of it's more Southern and Coastal location, I guessed wrong. According to the quiz, England
was the correct answer, I dispute that. Can someone enlighten me?

Well I would say all of them had some Celtic connection.  Ireland, Scotland and Wales were predominatently Celtic but there was also a small area (modern-day Cornwall) in England that is considered one of the Celtic nations.

Also an area in France was a Celtic nation and Celts were spread about acors much of northern Europe, as you say.

After reading the links  provided from you and Philip there was a Celtic presence in England. It wasn't very large nor
did it last very long but there was a presence none the less, my dispute still stands.

Henk, I felt that way awhile ago and almost quit but after some thought I decided to keep playing. It was the same
time that Frank quit playing; this is the response I gave him on his last day.

I was going to do the same thing, I figured the silliness was just too much. Then I got to thinking, so what if
it's a little silly it doesn't hurt anything and it's not like the trivia world will be knocking down my door to play
in a multimillion dollar tournament. It's just fun to see how many I can answer, and who knows, maybe I'll learn
a thing or two along the way.


I don't care who I beat or how many I get right or how long I take, I take the quiz because I like trivia. Don't
get discouraged, just keep banging along, it'll get better.

6. Okay, I'm a bit of an amateur musician. One of the instruments I play is a stringed instrument, is played with a bow, is small, and is held under the chin. What instrument can I play? 

Your Answer: Cello

Of course it's a violin - and I'm sure I ticked the right box.  :-\\

I got this question again.

6. As a matter of common decency you don't normally put your shoes on a table, but why can't you do so in England? 

The last time I got this question I said:

Your answer: Because it refers to hanging and is therefore not advisable.

The correct answer: Because the English don't wear socks.


I remembered that stupid answer, even posted it a few pages back, so that's what I clicked....guess what?

Your Answer: Because The English Don't Wear Socks.

The correct answer:  Because it refers to hanging and is therefore not advisable.

Will I ever get this question right?

9. How can we say "writing all joined up" in two words? 

Your Answer: Simple Writing
The correct answer was Cursive Writing.

Some people feel more comfortable by writing 'joined up', because they spend less time to write. Other people think that cursive writing doesn't fit their character or emotions. It's often called 'running writing'.


I'd never heard the expression before today, so how was I supposed to know? And the explanation don't make sense to me. How's writing cursive saving time..? :-\\

I nearly missed one today.  I use a mouse pad and it interpreted my moving the pointer across to the answer dot and then clicking as meaning I wanted to highlight one of the words in the answer.  Luckily I spotted it before I scrolled down the page.

I tripped myself up on one today, I switched from the right answer to the wrong one.

What is another name for a female fox? I clicked on Vixen but then I saw Kit and switched to that,
bad move. A kit is a baby fox not necessarily female, stupid me.

I got that question several times, and never got it wrong. I'm always reminded of the band by the name of Vixen. Surely you've heard of them?

Howard created a question for the quiz?  ???



10. If a woman was "stacked", what did she have?

Your Answer: Large breasts

"Stacked" was one of the milder terms to express a part of the female anatomy. Of course, the basic tight sweater style of the 50s added much to our descriptive vocabulary.

I don't think it is possible!
But then again - people have told me it is because he does so many other quizzes that he just looks at a couple of words, knows the answer, checks it and moves on! I still don't believe it as being possible!

I took 1 second longer, I got stuck on a question about a movie I've never seen and a question about a place

Supposedly very easy quiz today - however I get this stupid question!!!

5. This is the surname of the lady who won the Nobel prize for chemistry in 1911.

Your Answer: Carlucci
The correct answer was Curie.

Born Marya Sklodowska in 1867, Marie Curie won the prize for her discovery of radium and polonium. She died in 1934 as a direct result of exposure to radiation.
