Questions for October

Here they are.  I already know the answers!  so post something witty or sarcastic as a comment.  You don’t have to try them all!

  1. In the film “Gravity” chess pieces are floating around the wrecked Russian module. What game objects are floating around in the Chinese module?
  2. Someone once noticed that Adolf Hitler was secretly adding something to his (AH’s) glass of red wine – what was it?
  3. Genghis Khan’s Mongol horde left its mark here and there, well, almost everywhere actually. How many people did each of his warriors kill, on average?
  4. Cleopatra contemplated various methods of suicide (yes, really) – why did she decide to choose dath by asp?
  5. The opiod chemical etorpine is a very powerful tranquillizer, useful for rapidly immobilizing elephants and rhinoceroses; how was its analgesic property discovered?

  1. Sounds more like Morecambe & Wise. P.Stephenson never appeared in sketches, except on NTNN. And there was “Carry on Cleo” one of the better (read: less bad) Carry On films: Cleopatra: “I have a poisonous asp”. Sid James, as Mark Antony, looking at her shapely bottom “Oh, I wouldn’t say that”

  2. 1. Mother of taikonaut Jong Lee had secreted some home made pies for her number one son. They were known as the Ma Jong’s pizzas.
    2. Kosher matzo ball, because he only ever had one at a time.
    3. When noted 12 century impresario Temüjin launched his troupe of stand up comics and mime artistes on their chino-europe tour, he hoped they would break even. They ended up killing them.
    4. Trick question. Dath was a Twi’lek from Ryloth, rescued by Jedi Master Thorla. He never met Cleopatra. Hah! Try harder next time, nerder loser
    5. The discoverer of etorpine, Polish/Pakistani chemist Wazzin Dazixtzies is not clear on this.If you think you Wazzin Dazixties you probably weren’t.

  3. (4) – There was a fabulous gag on a British comedy show maybe 40 years ago, of a Cleopatra putting an asp in her bosom and then laughing hysterically because it tickled. Might have been Pamela Stephenson ??????

  4. 1. Pokémon Cards
    2. Brown wine
    3. Depends. Do you include by STD’s? If not, a few hundred, maybe.
    4. Where, O death, is your “e”? Where, O death, is your vowel?
    5, On someone whose elephant/rhinoceros was not immobilized quickly enough?

  5. 1.In the film “Gravity” chess pieces are floating around the wrecked Russian module. What game objects are floating around in the Chinese module?

    Everybody’s going to say Chinese Checkers, but I prefer the remains of the previous night’s takeaway. (lack of gravity will do that to you)

    2.Someone once noticed that Adolf Hitler was secretly adding something to his (AH’s) glass of red wine – what was it?

    Viagra. Sex with himself and his Alsatian, Blondie, was getting boring so he thought he might give Eva a try.

    3.Genghis Khan’s Mongol horde left its mark here and there, well, almost everywhere actually. How many people did each of his warriors kill, on average?

    His greatest disappointment was in consistently losing the Hard Bastard of the Year Award to Vlad the Impaler. When the Turks found out Vlad had not only cut off the heads of the local villagers but put them on sticks, they gave up. Christ, if he does to this to his own people what the hell would he do to us? Another time eh lads !

    4.Cleopatra contemplated various methods of suicide (yes, really) – why did she decide to choose dath by asp?

    She just couldn’t be “aspthed” trying anything else.

    5.The opiod chemical etorpine is a very powerful tranquillizer, useful for rapidly immobilizing elephants and rhinoceroses; how was its analgesic property discovered?

    First year medical students to whom the three stages of anaesthesia are referred to as Awake, Asleep and Dead observed that patients, when sat upon by the aforementioned wildlife, unconsciousness took place very rapidly.
