1. Brunei City.
2. 3, uh somewhere in the early 50s.
3. Uhm unless this happened after I graduated uni. I'd say never. Though after some issues around US naval ships said to carry nuclear materials in the 80s. I think a lot of the provisions of the treaty were abandoned then, leaving not much more then a shell of what the treaty once was. But if I had to venture a guess, maybe it was suspended during Iraq war 2003.
4. Do you mean Borneo, as in Kalimantan Indonesia/Malaysia/Brunei? Uh wouldn't it have 3 capitol cities Jakarta, KL, and uuuuuh Brunei City????? Hum. For someone who has travelled a lot surrounding islands, kinda bad that I don't know.
5. OK, crap, crap.
6. May the force be with you or Brunei City.
7. Wild guess NZ?
8. Next year?
9. Mr. Hawaii monarch. Got bitten by a jelly fish, and died as a result.
10. Infected protein or something like that.Mad cow, and the sheep version of mad cow (mad sheep. heheh) Haven't been quite involved in the prion talk in sleuthchat. :)

1. It's... what's her name...
2. I'm guessing three, AU/NZ/US? Signed in the forties/fifties? (WW2 or Cold War...)
3. Um...
4. Orangutan City? Borneo isn't a country, is it?
5. I'll let you know as soon as I see 'em. It's the new ones right? *googles* Oh.
6. Errr...
7. New Zealand. Unless it's a trick question...
8. 2007, in the West Indies. I want to go! (And couldn't those initials have been D.V.? I'd have it in the bag!)
9. I have no idea. He/she died, I'm guessing. (Because I'm a smartass like that.)
10. Prions are those renegade proteins who whisper evil advertising jingles into CJD/BSE/scrapie infected brains all day long. Yep.

Glad to see everybody likely stunk as bad as I did. :)


Oct-11-2005 10:08

I googled none...errr, ALL...of these. It was interesting reading about these things, except Star Wars, which affords me no interest.

1) Helen Clark - New Zealand Labor Party

2) 3 (Australia, NZ & US) - signed in 1951, effective in 1952

3) 1986 - NZ wouldn't allow US nuclear-powered or nuclear-armed ships to enter its ports, so the US canceled its part of the treaty with NZ
4) Kota Kinabalu (is there a saying/joke about this being a tough question?)
5) A New Hope; The Empire Strikes Back; Return of the Jedi
6) Slap the hands against the thighs
Puff out the chest
Bend the knees
Let the hip follow
Stamp the feet as hard as you can.

It is death! It is death!
It is life! It is life!
This is the hairy person
Who caused the sun to shine
Keep abreast! Keep abreast
The rank! Hold fast!
Into the sun that shines!

Let me become one with the land
This is our land that rumbles
And it's my time! It's my moment!
This defines us as the All Blacks
It's my time! It's my moment!
Our dominance
Our supremacy will triumph
And will be placed on high
Silver fern!
All Blacks!
Silver fern!
All Blacks!

I do that one in the shower every morning, so I didn't have to look it up. ;)

7) New South Wales
8) 2007 - Clinton McKay
9) Queen Lili'uokalani - surrendered the kingdom to the United States
10) proteinaceous infectious particle - transmit fatal and as-of-yet untreatable diseases

*laughs* Clear winner.. now the Haka in Maori like it's supposed to be?
And I don't think she surrended. Dole (the pineapple guy) bascially put her under house arrest so he could make moolah.
And New South Wales?? Hmm.

*now the Haka in Maori like it's supposed to be?*

No problem. The CD's in the mail.

Heh, ummmm, looks like the netball link I found was for the LADIES current netball champs. I didn't notice that until now. :)

Did I have the cricket player right? I just scanned a stats site for the first CK New Zealander I could find.


Oct-11-2005 11:51

OK, now I'm evidencing my complete ignorance. Netball is a womens' only sport, I see. Well, NSW seems to call themselves the '05 champs. I take it that's not true?
