• It's Jeopardy time.


    For $100 "He was the first man to step on the moon"

    For $500 "The discoverers of Janus"

    Good luck to you all! :)
  • "Who was Neil Armstrong?" for the first.

    "Who was Audouin Dollfus?" for the second.

    Those are my guesses.
  • Mr. armstrong is correct but Dollfus has jet not discovered any moon as far as I know.
  • According to this web site he did.

    What ever.

    "Who were R. Walker, J. Fountain, and S. Larson?" Maybe those guys.

    That's what I've read and since I'm the omnipotent ruler of the topic I get to choose who's wrong or right :lol:

    I'm gonna give you the freedom of choosing the next category Yeno.

    Then I'm going to find out why there are two answers to Janus discoverers <_< <br />It's worse to be missinformed than to not be informed at all.
  • Ok Thanks manneman. I agree that it is strange that there is two answers to the Janus question. Your answer was probably right.

    Anyway here is the next category:

    The Russian Revolution

    For $100 "He was the last Tsar of Russia."

    For $500 "They were the politicial group led by Lenine."

    Hey, aren't those the guys that did that song "I Want to Love you, My Little Babushka Mamma"?? :lol:

    Well Bolsheviks are correct but Alexander is not the one. By the way I also want the number behind the name. Ex: Alexander the second
  • Who is Nikolaus II ?
    (were really ;) )
  • Correct!

    Now what happens manneman? Who chooses the category?
  • Who is Wreckingball? :lol:

    I really would have gotten to choose since I got the last question but since it's late here and WB got the harder one I think I 'll let him take over the floor!

    Besides I owe him one from the brainteasers ;)
  • Aaaalrighty, then.

    The new topic is The American Pastime

    $100 answer:
    This team is the only one to have all it's starting pitchers win 20 games or more in the same season. (Team only, the season isn't necessary)

    $500 answer:
    He was the first player to (unofficially) break Babe Ruth's record of 60 home runs in a season. (Player's name only, the season isn't necessary)

    [This is getting stale, if I don't have a correct response by the evening of 1/19 PST, I will post new questions]
  • "Who are the Cleveland Indians?"

    "Who is Roger Maris?"
  • No and no.

    OK. Just in case you're curious, the answers are the Baltimore Orioles and Hank Greenberg.

    The new topic is Femme Fatales:

    $100 answer
    - She is a skin dirigible from Texas and former model/actress and has her own TV show, and could be the poster case for drug/food abuse.

    $500 answer

  • Ok, I'm willing to loose some money just to shed some light on this thread

    Who is hmmmm, Rosanne Barr?

    Who is errrrrr, Monica Lewinsky?

    I really havn't got a clue
  • Who are Camaryn Manheim and Marilyn Monroe??

  • Who is: Anna Nicole Smith

    And aaaaaaaaaaaaaa hummmmmm aaaa Na I can't thing who the second one is.. :(

  • Ahh, you're halfway home Worf.

    (HINT) The other Femme Fatale ruined the last good shot the democrats had at the White House before Clinton.
  • I dont really know but i'll guess

    Who is hilary clinton?

    Total guess
  • Nope, the hint was before Clinton, and that's why this is the hard answer/question. :D

    ps. I just don't have the HART to give any more clues.
  • Alright, I've found something.
    Donna Rice, who is she?
    Phew, almost forgot to put it like a question :lol:
  • You da manne. Your turn.
  • Geez, you must have had a crush on that woman WB being the only one in the whole world remembering her and all :lol:
    You have no idea how hard I had to work to find her.

    The new topic is: Philosophy

    $100He thought, therefor he was.

    $500Statement in conflict with the valid principle of the concept.
  • 1. Who is Rene Descartes?

    2. What is, he was? or he thought?
  • Correct on the first one.
    Confusing on the second. I'm looking for an expression used in philosophy (remember I'm into math, so phil.math (wich everybody knows is great fun) is the place to go look).

    Do you like cats, I have a friend called Erwin who had a cat. I don't know if it still is alive ;)
  • E =m(c*c)?

    - I don't know how to write exponential terms.
  • I'll take a wild guess:


    Statement of conflict, could be a prison

    Valid Principle of the concept, Is that there is a good reason for why people are put in them

    Prisons have good reasons to hold people in them.

    I'm probably wrong but what the hell
  • Nah, both of you are entangled in the complexity of the formulation. Just try to translate it into normal english and then just the bold clues.

    [b]Erwins last name is Schr
  • I still do not understand so

    Did Erwin Schrodinger live from (1887-1961)?

    Also did he discover wave mechanics?

    I am probably wrong if so please EXPLAIN!?!? :angry:
  • I can tell that you're a bit off on this one. I'll try to explain it to you.
    First of all, the threads name is Jeopardy, so it probably helps if you've seen a TV gameshow by the same name once or twice.
    The objective is the ask a question to wich the answer would be
    "Statement in conflict with the valid principle of the concept."

    Like, "What is pi?" to the answer "arccos (-1)" or "what is orange?" to "The color of oranges".
    Get it. :huh:

    You will have to read through a whole lot more then just the 5 first lines of the bio of Schr
  • As far as I'm concerned, Cantor, Kant, Bertram Russell, Plato, Socrates, and Descartes can smoke an a priori turd in hell. I quit.

    Wait a minute, how's this?

    If he thinks, then he's mortal, and if he's mortal, he will die, and if he dies, he is not....SO, it should be I think, therefore I am mortal.

  • I'll give it a try, in proper format:

    What is an oxymoron? <_< </font>
  • WB: you need to drop Descartes, he's got nuthin to do with the second question

    Susan: Very close.

    [b]Hint: Do a search on Schr
  • What is a paradox?

    Shot in the dark.
  • Very good :D
    At last a correct question, I'ld like to apologize if the answer I gave was hard to understand, but it's kinda hard to put it down in print so I made a translation from a book wich defined a paradox that way. It may have been screwed up a bit in the translation. ;)

    Hey, Yeno. guess what! You're up :)

  • Tonygillis, it's not that they are difficult questions, it's that they are questions!! The whole thing is not put into proper 'Jeopardy' format. Please read the very beginning of the thread to see how the format is supposed to go, and then resubmit something.

    (the jury will kindly regard Mr. Gillis' last questions) :D
  • Isn't it actually your turn though, Suze? :unsure:

    Oop's, sorry Tony, didn't quite read all of her post. That'll learn me! :blink:

    I'm pretty certain of the second one, but the first I don't know!
    Is there a cathegory you'ld like to share with us?

  • Unidentified: Not sure what that was all about, but you should be guessing at mine ...... and I don't think those applied..... unless I'm too stoned to notice, which is entirely possible! :wacko: hehehe

    Alrighty, I'll give you all a hint: The answer to both of them is the same!! :o (did that just to throw you all off a bit, shame on me!!) :P

  • Maybe you should stick to just reading! :P
    I'm not looking for the meaning of just the letters.
    I'm looking for what you get when you mix em all together (thus the +) and heat it up and make bottles or panes.
  • $100: What is Hydrogen?

    I'll expand it a bit:
    For the $500 response, I'll also except the name of the Pittsburgh Steeler Quarterback from Louisiana who was married to a famous skater and was in Burt Reynolds movies and now does NFL shows and long-distance commercials, and is reputedly a poor speller.
    The $100 response (famous for being at home with Kings or hoboes) died with Wiley Post.

    OK, OK, I get the message.

  • Ahh, it's a football team kind of cowboy, no wonder I had no idea. :lol:

  • I have no idea if this is right, this is the first thing that I found that could be an answer. Manneman, ignore that PM. I sent it before I posted this. I actually thought WB was being serious for once.

    $500: Who is Lefred-Thouron?
  • That's whatcha get for thinkin' :P
  • [b]I'm gonna let REX have this since he's taking such a keen interest in solving the cathegory.
