In an effort to liven up the boards again, some of us have decided to resuscitate the Daily pub quiz but we will be doing

it on a weekly basis. This is a tribute to the original founder, jstkdn. We have decided to take turns coming

up with the questions. The team consists of myself, Ms. Helen, nicnic and detectivehappy.


1. Each week we will post 10 questions.
2. Each Quiz runs exactly one week.
3. The first person that has all 10 questions right, wins. Or if no one has all questions right, the best one wins.
4. You can only post answers ONCE for the same quiz.
5. No cash involved. Just glory. :)

If we can't google then how we supposed to work out the answers? Is googling any different to me going to the library to look it up in a book?

And I'm with Lorelei.........I got those 2 bonus questions straight up but the rest have me stumped.

Googling isn't allowed basically because it would only take a person about 5 minutes or less to find the answers (on a bad day, prob'ly). If you've actually got the gumption to hike all the way down to the library, pore through a book, and come up with the answers on your own, go for it!!

As for how you're s'pposed to work out the answers, basically, it's meant to be a straight "how much is in your brain" sort of a quiz. Some people happen to know a lot about trivia in general, some only on certain topics, some just on popular culture, and some wouldn't know any trivia if their life depended on it.

You're not expected to know ALLLLLL the answers (that's why we came up with some of the questions we did.). It's meant to be a gauge of how much general knowledge you have.

Again, if you're actually up to schlepping down to the library and researching these, go for it. (Some of these answers you won't FIND on the internet. You may find them if you find the right book. ;-).

So.

Good luck, and happy reading!! ;-D

And i challenge you to find the answer to bonus #5 without sitting (or sleeping) through several hours of bonehead, er introductory anthropology classes. Or maybe, if you are Squirrel, spending several weeks with one of the Mongolian peoples. (Hint: it's not in a book but can be figured out through observation ... or listening scrupulously to the prof's lecture.)

Corrections.

Rocky Mountain Oyster is a Buffalo Testicle or Bull Testicle

And a Buffalo Chip is Buffalo Poo used as firewood.

And Bonus #5 They either search for poo or they look for horse hair in the paint on the pottery is my guess

The others I leave to Christine. Smarter than me :-)

Ok guys, nice try but time's up. Here goes, let's see if I can remember all of them (except bonus #5--that one i'll never forget).

ESCAPED FROM THE ZOO --

1. What is the only marsupial native to the Americas? The opposum.

2. How many species of tiger could be found in the wild up until approximately 50 years ago? Eight.

3. How many species of tiger are now extinct? Three. Five are still out there.

4. Where was the newest species of rhinocerous found? If i remember my news reports right, Sumatra was where the newest species of rhino was found.

5. What is a John Doree? It's a fish. (Nobody remembered Ellen Degeneres' role in "Finding Nemo"???)

6. What is the only species of the deer family that does NOT lose its antlers each year? The reindeer.

7. What is the oldest domesticated animal? Evidence for the dog and the sheep dates from about the same time, albeit in different parts of the world. Or so i remember from those infamouse anthropology classes--see bonus #5 for the high point of them.

8. What is the only domesticated animal that originated in the Americas? Llama or Alpaca will work, although it is not quite so prevalent nowadays as ... the Turkey.

9. What is the only "Big Game" animal that has been successfully domesticated ? Two answers hold here. For modern times, the Indian Elephant. For circa 5000 years ago, the Cheetah was domesticated and used as a hunting animal by the Egyptians.

10. What is the fastest animal? What is the fastest mammal? How fast can each travel? Swift and the Peregrine Falcon have each been clocked at over 200 mph in flight. The fastest mammal is the Cheetah again, at around 70 mph.
