The blue, white and orange tricolour of New York City reflects its Dutch history (and its former name of New Amsterdam)

The team name: The Raton Lovers (reception: suspiciously good for a French-for-raccoon based pun)

The attendees
1) The statistician
2) The doctor

The ones that got away
1) Which actor offered Demi Moore one million dollars to sleep with her in the 1993 film Indecent Proposal?
2) Kathmandu is the capital of which country?
3) In the name of the American broadcast network, what do the letters CBS stand for?
4) Name the three major airports serving New York City
5) From which country did Tunisia gain independence in 1956?

The answers

Poll results: 16 votes with 7 scoring 4/5, 4 scoring 3/5, 4 scoring 2/5, and 1 scoring 1/5. No-one joined us on zero :(

The average voter scored 3-and-a-bit/5!

The excuses

The alternative questions
1) Robert Redford founded which international film festival in 1978, which has been held annually in Utah ever since?
2) Nepal shares its borders only with India and China, a property shared by which other country?
3) Who hosts CBS's Late Show, a late night chat show that has been running since 1993?
4) Before being renamed in honour of the late president in 1963, what name - shared by a Scottish indie rock band - was previously used to refer to JFK airport?
5) Along with Tunisia and Turkey, six other UN member states have national flags featuring a crescent and (single) star symbol. Name four of them.
