Unless of course, eyedol's first two answers are bemusingly incorrect.

Fry is frozen on Jan 1st 2000, and wakes up just before Jan 1st 3000, and he exclaims "My God...a million years which would be

1,000,000 - 1,000

Which equals 999,000 years and a couple minutes to strip naked and get on the probulator; not 3,000, as if he said, my God, it's 1,000,000 A.D. or something.

Next:

Eyedol...-173 degrees Celsius is colder then -173 degrees Fahrenheit.  The exact relationship between the two is F = C*(9/5) + 32, or C = (F - 32)*(5/9).

The value -173 degrees Celsius is in fact an accurate number for the temperature the lunar surface drops to at it's coldest point.  -173 degrees Celsius is -279.4 degrees Fahrenheit, which is why the old man says it first drops to one, then the other.

If you ask me, (and I realize no one has, but I'm a bit of a blurter...) the biggest problem with these games I've seen recently on the board, is that "copying" answers somehow nets one points of any kind.  It should be first come first serve.  You don't see a guy buzz in on Jeopardy!, give an answer, and then the next person who buzzed in says "What he said." and gets half as much money!

Lastly...OhSnap, handing out point penalties to people you don't like, is hardly going to attract people to your game.  You've made remarks about wondering why there are so few players.  Why?

Yeah, i hear ya chalic, as far as the problem with copying and pasting, but I didnt want to write forty questions, nor did I want to only have the one person who does nothing but sit in front of their computer and refresh the page over and over to have the biggest advantage by only allowing the first perons to respond.

Sorry if you think I am being rude to him to dock the points, but I am not going to dock anyone else points. He just made my effort seem worthless and time-wasting, and if he feels that way, i think he shouldn't then be the first person to get an answer right.

To me, it seemed like he was insulting my effort one second, than trying reap the benefits of them the next.

And I am sorry if everyone thinks its unfair of me, but I don't really want to have had all of this I've done be for the benefit of someone who called me stupid right after i posted the topic.

My only concession: If he erases the posts (the first and second), then I would reduce the deduction to only 2 points. That is hardly anything considering he still got first place on the original question (sorry if I ruined it, but you jsut explained it thuroughly)

Hope that makes everyone feel a little better.'

See you tomorrow for Round two and possibly another bonus question.

Keep answering people, there are still points to be had!

OhSnap...why are you keeping this prize a mystery?  If you have a genuine prize, why not just say what it is, and say you'll give it to the winner?

Conversely, if it's something related to the show, that costs nothing to duplicate, why not just give it to everyone and not hoard it?

I'm not trying to call you out, but seriously, what digs?

ok hi my name is alex and i have been reading the post and the creator/chay arguement and i have to say the the maker of the post is an insecure little fuckwit. GROW UP YOU PATHETIC PERSON who will most likely end his life as the head delivery boy for pizza hut. I love the way that someone comes on and criticizes your silly little game (just a GAME i remind you) and you behave like a four year old who hasn't gotten their way my bending the rules to suit you to seek some sort of petty and not to mention sad revenge. Burn in hell you stupid moron you are the problem with the world, if you are suicidal end it now because sweets you have nothing to contribute or to look forward in your pathetic excuse for an existance. Chay don't listen to him. BURN IN HELL

ok, Chay, I have read your post, and understand for your opinion. I don't think its a big deal to ask you to remove the post, but three points isnt a big deal either, so I understand your choice.

I am sorry you and I havent seen eye to eye on this whole thing, and i am sorry if you still resent the 3 point deduction.

Now, on to Amazed:

jeez dude, that is harsh.

As far as suicidal, fortunately not, although you make a persuasive argument.

As far as my retort, i think the sad ones are the ones who come on to boards like this and  insult people they've never met or spoken to before.

Its totally obnoxious. And as far as I'm concerned, you are much mroe likely to burn in hell for telling a stranger to kill themselves for virtually no reason, than I am for docking chay three points.

Get a grip dude. Three points makes me the problem with the world?

And in case you have been paying attention, my whole problem with this has been his insulting my effort, so don't call me petty, as I am the generous one in this scenario, going out of my way to put this together.

I want good humor, and if i can teach an asshole like you (amazed, not chay) some manners by tryiing to impose some rules, then I am gonna do it.

And furthermore, although this is obviously someone elses message board, I like to think of myself as the administrator / rulemaker of MY OWN game, and if I think its uncool to dis my tourney and then try to win it, you really shouldn't feel the need to tell me to kill myself, or to burn in hell.

thats messed up.

Obviously I know its a game, but the object of the game is to have fun, and he immediately tried to ruin the fun by discouraging people from playing, and saying it was stupid and unoriginal (when no one asked for his opinion on it). Then, after trying to disuade people and insult it, he then tried to win the tournament?

It's like a business. They explicitly have the right to refuse service to a customer if they think they are being rude, or whatever; they can turn away anyone they want. In this situation, i see myself as that business owner. Why would I serve a customer who posts a sign in front of my shop saying "This place's setup is stupid and unoriginal. It won't last, so dont bother patronizing it!"

And finally, I don't understand what is with all the hate. You are seriously in denial abotu something.

OhSnap...this may be late advice, but you've just started what is known as a "flame war".  A flame war is different from an argument, in that in a flame war, you're just attacking one another.  "amazed" threw out ridiculous personal attacks that no one else would take seriously, and you responded.  Yes, I am being sarcastic in slowly explaining what every posting board neophyte knows.

If it blows up, realize that it's possible/likely the thread will be closed down, and your "business" abruptly bankrupted.  Consider editing your post perhaps?

Edit:  Okay amazed...you've now breached about 3 different board rules.  Attacking someone's religion is pretty far past the line.  I'm an athiest as well; I don't go around calling the religious "ignorant little boy"s.

Amazed:

i didnt say i believe in it, i said you are more likely to go there.

ANd if those are the rules, I believe you said i was going there first, so you must as well, yes?


Chalic, that was truly hilarious.

I totally dont want my "business" to close. I really want the games to continue. No flame wars.

But I thought that whole business analogy was at least a valid point (or I should say not a flame). As I have said before, I just wanna have fun. I am not gonna just say "okay, bye then" to his comment. At least I defended myself (with what I thought also included valid arguments).

I like you Chalic, so please answer quesitons three and five so you can get points!

i wasn't saying this place is stupid, i was more saying "your establishment is similar to alot of the others, what can you do to make it more original? and also i'm here so why don't i test the product"
also, if this is like a business you should know that a business won't survive if it is just a clone of another, you need a "Competitive advantage"

Amazed - thanks for the support, i can see what you mean by "petty". hes been here just as long as you and he already thinks himself as a moderator.

also have a look through this, im surprised it hasn't been passed on yet,

Oh my gosh, this is out of control. I try to make peace with chay, and he calls me petty.

I dont think of myself as a moderator, but i am the administrator of the contest, so ...

And I think its unfortunate that i went ahead and changed the format, explained the prize better, and (in my mind) really made the effort to make everyone happy, and yet chay still just called me petty.

Will the naysayers please just let it die already. You have insulted me, and I appreciate, now spread your negativity somewhere else please.

I would like to say i am sorry i MAY have attacked you a little to harshly and wasn't thinking straight...but i really think that is must be noted that you are petty you are pathetic and most of all you have pissed me off so from what i understand if i post enough pointless shit on your precious 'game' it will be shut down...now am i that petty to seek suck ridiculas revenge? hmm maybe i will take a leaf out of your book...

oh charlic about the hell thing i wouldn't usually but any christian that actually believes the ridicualy dogma which was strongly emphasised and put out during the dark ages when the churches were first currupted by too much power with all the information out there is an ignorant little boy, god may exist (i am not arrogant enough to say i know for certain) however if god does the existence of a hell goes against every characteristic that this great diety posesses

That's new...  But really...oh fine, I'll bite and answer them, but I have to look two of them up, and to me it seems to defeat the purpose of a trivia game if you don't know the answers off hand.

#3:

She brings a cake that is immediatly splattered on the floor.

#4

50 million dollars, and One Jillion...no no...50 million dollars, respectively.

#5

"The odor travels past this coffee stain here, around the olive pit, and into this cigar burn."
