See if there is interest for this.

1. Each day I will post 10 questions, at random times of the day.
2. Each Quiz runs exactly 24 hours.
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. :)

Don't recall what NLP stands for, but I'm fairly sure it's basically "reading" the body actions of a person.

1. almonds (however not everyone can smell cyanide because of a genetic trait)
2. usually constructing an internal image
3. "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang"
4. Dutch (Friesian to be more precise)
5. being American communist during the Cold War and spying for the USSR (allegedly giving the A-bomb to the Soviet Union)
6. Arvin Sloane
7. drilling holes into masonry to implant audio surveillance devices
8. American intelligence gathering secret global surveillance network
9. computer security research
10. look in phone book, ask a local (or if the person wanting/needing the address can obtain the needed records legally, obtain postal records for the area)

Yes NLP is Neurolinguistic Programming. I have read a tun of books about it, also speedreading people, body language type stuff. It is not only really interesting, but also very useful. I use it mainly for work (I am a manager.) If you combine it with MBTI (I am a qualified at that, while I am not (yet) at NLP), it becomes a very useful tool.

See if MadOne and Bryola can have a shot at this one!!!!! I promised, so here we go!!!!

Math and numbers:
1.The number classification youíre probably most familiar with is odd and even. Even numbers can be divided into two equal parts without a remainder. Odd numbers canít. End of story, right? Not according to Boethius. He divides even numbers into three types. Which ones?
2.Where does the word 0 come from?
3.Evaluate the square root (7-24i) ?
4.What is the supplement of 75 degrees, in radians?
5.Assume a triangle is A, B, C. Itís legs are of lengths 2,2, and 3. What type of triangle is it?
6.What is a 15 sided polygon?
7.An example of a deceptively simple-stated theorem with an extraordinary difficult proof is the Jordan curve theorem. What is the fundamental result of this theorem?
8.A game has 10 questions, each right answer gives 10 points. What is likely to be the main reason for giving 10 points per question?
9.Given that a probability of an event A is 9 over 13, what are the odds in favour of A?
10. In answering these questions myself, how many did I have right?

If anyone wants to volunteer in writing a daily pub quiz, let me know. Let me know which day would be suitable for you to do it. What the topic will be (random is OK too.)

However, keep in mind we have an international audience, of various ages, and backgrounds.

Well, jstkdn, since you have the answers, I believe the answer to number 10 (the only one I can answer, except maybe #8) is that you have all of them right.
Of course, without the answers. . .
