It's about time! Li was kind enough to make this sub forum at my request for exclusive MFK trivia contests where I give out free fish to winners. I really never forgot about this and actually enjoyed the times we played it. I must have written down dozens of ideas and concepts over the past couple years, but none ever saw the light of day or MFK pages. A winner would be the person who can correctly answer the most trivial questions as they appear below in the shortest time. For example, if someone sends their answers at 1 pm Thursday and another at 9 am Friday; each person answering the same number of questions correctly, the earlier submission is declared winner because it came in before the other know it all's answers were received. As noted in previous contests, to post your answers directly on this thread would give other readers and contestants hints or answers that they may not have known prior to someone's posting their 2 cents. In order to maintain equanimity among the participants, I ask that you please either email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or forward your answers to me via a pm at this site. As I mentioned above, timing counts. The deadline for entries is Friday the 27th @ 3 AM EST (that's midnight on Friday for all of you left coasters!) Winner gets $50.00 in free TUIC fish to include on an order shipped this calender year of 2012. I will post at least the top three contestants responses - maybe more if they are somewhat close. ps-if you have a question regarding the above rules or if I've confused you in some way, please don't hesitate to ask on this thread, via email, or pm. Without further ado, let's see what you've got. In no particular order the first topic is American built motorcycles. question 1 Can you identify the make of each of the following 12 cycles? This is not meant to be a comprehensive listing of USA built bikes. It should be quite challenging to most of us, while a small % of MFK readers may think this is easy. That's the fun of these contests. bike 1 bike 2 bike 3 bike 4 bike 5 bike 6 bike 7 bike 8 bike 9 bike 10 bike 11 bike 12 question 2 What year and model is this automobile? question 3 What is that on the woman's lap and what distinction does it hold in the animal word? question 4 For what team in which sport during which year did the below athletes play together? Trivial hint that ought to be of no help whatsoever: a McDonalds quarter pounder cost .95 cents at this time Ed Figueroa, Goose Gossage, Ron Guidry, Catfish Hunter, Sparkly Lyle, Thurman Munson, Bucky Dent, Graig Nettles, Willie Randolph, Reggie Jackson, Lou Piniella, Micky Rivers two extra credits: In the year previous to the above partial roster listing, one player listed was not on the team. In the year following the above partial roster listing, a different individual listed above was not on the team. Any idea who's missing during these years? question 5 The below quotes are from what book written by whom in what year? "And whoever does not want to die of thirst among men must learn to drink out of all cups; and whoever would stay clean among men must know how to wash even with dirty water. And thus I often comforted myself, "Well then, old heart! One misfortune failed you; enjoy this as your good fortune." "It is no small art to sleep: for that purpose you must keep awake all day." question 6 Just how long does the average 18 wheeler's trailer measure (to the nearest centimeter please!)? question 7 Who was the master of the stratocaster? What are the dates of his birth and death? question 8 What are the names of these birds and what do they each have in common with each other (aside from feathers - thank you very much)? bird 1 bird 2 bird 3 bird 4 question 9 I suppose that since we are on a fish forum, there ought to be a fish question of some type. I just took these photos last week. What species of earth eaters do we have here? fish 1 fish 2 fish 3 Talk about random trivia... Good luck everyone!
