Hey guys...here's another chance for you die hard VMFers to prove how much worthless information you have locked up in your skulls. Yes! It's another one of Phil (the worthless information King's) trivia challenges!

When we did this a few weeks ago for the first time, many of you complained that questions about people like Douglas Macarthur were unfair because they lived before your time. FYI he was before my time too. That's what Steven Ambrose and the History Channel are for. As per usual, please post back your score and remember...if I got any of my own questions wrong...DON'T BORE ME BY POSTING "FACTS" /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif. Good luck and remember NO WAGERING!

Ten More Things You Would Know if You Were Me:

1. Who was the third President of the United States of America?
2. What’s the chemical symbol for gold?
3. 3 cubed divided by 3 factorial equals what?
4. Who were the five main characters of Jonny Quest? (Don’t forget the dog)
5. Who were the four original members of Van Halen?
6. What’s the bore and stroke of a stock Ford 289?
7. Name the 9 members of The Fellowship of the Ring.
8. What U.S. currency has a picture of a car on it and what make is the car?
9. Under what conditions is the infield fly correctly called?
10. In the U.S. Navy, what is one rank below Admiral?

Answers Below.





Keep Going.





Just a little further!





Answers:

1. Thomas Jefferson
2. Au
3. 3 cubed = 27. 3 factorial = 3x2x1=6. 27/6= 4.5
4. Jonny Quest, Dr. Benton Quest, Hadji, Race Bannon, and Bandit. If you've never seen this cartoon be advised it was the greatest cartoon ever! Pirated VCD's are available on ...and my kids love them.
5. David Lee Roth, Michael Anthony, Eddie & Alex Van Halen
6. 4” x 2.87”
7. Gandalf, Aragorn, Boromir, Legolas, Gimli, Frodo, Sam, Pippen, Merry
8. U.S. $10 Bill. It’s a Huppmobile. What year? Beat’s the heck out of me.
9. Runners on 1st and 2nd, or 1st, 2nd and 3rd AND 0 or 1 outs. (fair) fly ball is hit where an infielder can catch the ball with normal effort. Infield fly is called. Batter is out IF ball is caught or ball lands in fair territory and is touched by a fielder (does not roll foul without being touched). Play continues. Runners may advance at their own peril, but are not forced to advance as they would be if the infield fly was not called.
10. Captain. Anyone in command of a ship is also called Captain regardless of rank.

So...post up...How'd you do???

p.s. Everyone have a good weekend. I'll be under my car installing my new fuel and brake lines (part of my interior restoration project now in it's 7th month). At least the sheet metal is all in. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

I need to stop answering these Hoosier, I am starting to get a complex problem.

Although this time I only got 5, so with the 7 last time I am still above 50%

10 of 10. I'm good. BUT... I couldn't remember Dr. Quest's first name, is that OK? If not, then 9 of 10

#8 is a trick question... there is NO car on the redesigned ("Big Head") $10. But I knew what you meant.

In the immortal words of Dr. Ho, my Statics professor, "You Engineer. You build bridge. You make mistake in calculation. Bridge fall down. Millions of people die. And you want Partial Credit?"

But then again, he was kind of an A-hole...so sure you get 10 out of 10. Guess I'll have to try and make it harder next time!

I thought there was a "Commodore" ranking between Capt. and Admiral??? Not used in peace time but like a harbor master during war time situation... Maybe I just listened to the Commodores too much in the 70's. LOL

I think the Commodore is the guy that runs the Yacht Club. You might be thinking of Commander which is one rank below Captain and one rank above Lt. Commander.

4 and Commadore is below Admiral. The rank was brought back duriing peace time in the early 90's, they had to put those old farts somewhere.

After a little research... /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

The U.S. Treasury says that, and I quote:
"There are four cars represented on the reverse of the ten-dollar bill. None of these automobiles are of any specific year, make, or model, but rather a composite representation of the style of automobiles manufactured in the early 1920s."

The rank below Admiral is Vice-Admiral, for example:
US Navy -- US Army -- comparable insignia
Fleet Admiral -- General of the Army -- 5 stars
Admiral -- General -- 4 stars
Vice-Admiral -- Lieutenant General -- 3 stars
Rear Admiral (upper half) -- Major General -- 2 stars
Rear Admiral (lower half) -- Brigadier General -- 1 star
Captain -- Colonel -- eagle that looks alot like a chicken
