    Expiration date of 1-2 weeks?

    More riddles as opposed to simple "what's the name of..." questions.
    This will also nulify the effectiveness of PDF search since one has to understnd the answer beforehand.

    Something like:

    Pretty colors might lead astray.

    The answer to that would be that junkie device in Gammu that Luciall sees. I think it's better than asking outright- what's the name of the device...etc.

    Whoa...way to kill a buzz. :(
    I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

    I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

    I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

    Ugh, I am NOT a big fan of the "riddles" method of asking trivia. Just properly word your questions and PDF searches won't be that big of a deal. If I want to exchange riddles, I'll go to a Hobbit forum :roll:

    I quite like the idea of riddles actually, maybe not in the main trivia thread, but yeah they're cool. Do they have to rhyme? Orald's below was a little too cryptic for me though. :S.

    Riddles should be kept in their own trivia thread. 2p toss.

    Yea, my riddle here was thrown out of the head, I know it was too vague.

    Rhyming is always a plus in riddles methinks, I always try to but it doesn't always work well(and as I've said, I'm not too good in rhyming in English).

    Orald, you were wrong. Omphalos was right.

    OK, this one is a bit more tricky.

    But kept being reborn

    She gave me the horn.

    Umm, is this thread becoming the new trivia thread? It's supposed to be for the rules. And see everyone, when you make it into a riddle it's much nicer looking.

    Ah, yes, the "Ass rouge" (Red Ace). Excellent choice.

    In that memorable passage in Dune, Stilgar eats a dish of the heavily spiced Caladanian curry which Muad'Dib has caused to be prepared for his loyal Fedaykin...but it irritates his piles and makes them bleed profusely. He reaches into to his stillsuit buttpouch and shows them all the damage....

    :P

    Postby SandRider » 29 Oct 2010 08:28

    I've wondered for a long time how to conduct a "Trivia Contest", not on Dune,
    but just in general, on a message board like this ....

    all I have ever been able to come with would be "Honor Code Trivia",
    wherein everyone must be honor-bound to not Google the answers ...

    I'm always fascinated by what little bits of facts are stored in my brain that
    can be recalled when some-one asks a question, & I know the answer ...

    sometimes, it makes to sense to me - if we're in a bar, and some one says,
    "Hey, what year was the Alamo ?", meaning the battle, I can immediately
    answer "1836" and understand why I would know this ...

    other times, I know the answer to something without having the slightest clue
    as to when or why I would've learned it - something I just "picked up" along the way ...

    sometimes I surprise myself - a conversation or question will trigger something, a memory,
    or related event, and I will say "Don't why I know this, but ...."

    also, I enjoy general knowledge trivia games (used the beat the living dogshit outta my boys
    at Trivial Pursuit) and Jeopardy! .... for a long time, I used to stop in a bar when the show
    was on at 5:30pm and me and some old guys would watch and call out answers and bet shots ...
    for one thing, I do enjoy showing off my vast and wide knowledge, but I also got a kick of other
    smart people, esp if they knew something about a topic I knew nothing about - and then there
    was always the bubba in the back who would call out an answer to something you'd've bet your
    farm he didn't know ...

    again, tho, the only way to do that here would be on the "Honor System" ....
    and I just don't think I'd trust some of you asshats around here ....
    ................ I exist only to amuse myself ................
    ImageImage

    I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
    how to fully interact with people.

    People never believe me when I tell them that I can not cheat at games ... I just can't, it is true! I am in for the Honour system trivia game.
