Your targets this week:
1+ out of 11: Well done, you beat us!
7+ out of 11: We'd have won with you on our team!
1) The statistician
2) The doctor
3) The engineer
The ones that got away
1) Which was the first animated movie to be nominated for the Best Picture Oscar?
2) According to research carried out last year, the article about which man is the most contested on Wikipedia?
3) Which 1974 David Bowie single's title is made up of the same word repeated twice?
4) Which pet product's active ingredient is the chemical nepetalactone?
5) Name the song and artist behind these lyrics:
7) One of the world's hottest peppers is named after which Caribbean city?
8) Of the six famous numbers in the TV series Lost, which one is the only prime?
9) What three-name fictional law or accounting firm has been used in several parody settings by (among others) Johnny Carson, Groucho Marx and Daffy Duck?
10) Sort these boxing weight categories from heaviest to lightest: bantam, cruiser and welter.
11) The six Australian states are New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania, Victoria, Western Australia and which other?
2) George W Bush
3) Rebel Rebel
5) Fat Bottomed Girls by Queen (you need both for the point)
7) Havana (the chilli in question is the habanero)
8) 23 (the other numbers are 4, 8, 15, 16 and 42)
9) Dewey, Cheatem & Howe
10) Cruiser, welter, bantam
11) South Australia (no leeway here, just in case you said 'Southern Australia')
Poll results: 26 votes. 25 of you did better than us but just 2 would have helped us win! The average voter scored just under 4/8.
2) After some debate that revolved around Hitler and Jesus, we eventually went with the wildcard John F Kennedy hoping the conspiracy theories surrounding his death might have helped push him up the leaderboard.
3) One of those songs where I didn't think I'd ever heard of it until listening to it just now. Apparently it's Bowie's most-covered track.
4) We probably should have thought of this, but got a bit too preoccupied with cat litter. If you're never seen what happens when big cats are given catnip, you should definitely watch this.
5) Much like Bruce Springsteen last week, another song I thought I knew quite well, but apparently never really listened to the lyrics of.
6) The engineer immediately suggested the correct answer, only to have a hint of doubt creep in near hand-in time, sparking a last-minute change to 'seconds' (which I'll admit I thought sounded far more plausible). Another point in favour of always trusting your quizzing instincts!
7) Impressively, we discussed Havana and Habanero while scrabbling around for an answer but didn't put the two together.
8) Having never watched Lost we weren't in an ideal position here. We went with 13, thinking its inauspiciousness might have appealed to the writers.
9) Another one that was floating around in our brains somewhere but none of us could reach it. We ended up going for the admittedly not quite as good 'Robs, Steals and Pillages'.
10) We all immediately agreed that bantam was the lightest, but then couldn't decide which was the heaviest, eventually zagging with the wrong option.
11) Regular readers will be becoming familiar with my superhero-like ability to fail at Australian state questions. (And you must admit that would be the best superhero.) As you might be able to infer from the answer above, we put down Southern instead of South.
The alternative questions
2) George W Bush is now arguably better known as a world-renowned painter than as a president, but which former world leader has he attempted to paint here?
3) Which 1986 film, written by Monty Python Terry Jones, saw David Bowie play a Goblin King who kidnaps a baby?
4) Which fictional heroine is known by the nickname 'Catnip' to her friend Gale?
5) An essential piece of Queen trivia is that Freddie Mercury was born Farrokh Bulsara on the island of Zanzibar. Of which modern-day country is Zanzibar now a semi-autonomous part?
6) Which American state lends its name to a metric of wave height measurement used by surfers, scaled so that the actual height of the wave is roughly twice the figure quoted?
7) Having asked about the Scoville Scale last week, the other essential piece of chilli-based trivia knowledge is which is the world's hottest. You might think it's the Ghost Pepper, crowned in 2007, but it has since been superseded twice, with the current holder taking the title on Boxing Day 2013.
8) Prime numbers play a vital role in many areas of online security via cryptography. One of the more widely used encryption algorithms is known as RSA, but from what is the name RSA derived? (An equivalent system was developed by the English mathematician Clifford Cocks around three years earlier, but was deemed classified information until 1997.)
9) Daffy Duck appeared in 133 cartoons during animation's so-called 'golden age' between 1928 and the late 1960s. Two Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies characters appeared in more. One of these is Bugs Bunny, who is the other?
10) Who was the first woman to win an Olympic boxing title?
11) Australia's national anthem Advance Australia Fair was chosen after receiving 43% of the vote as part of the 1977 referendum. Which song came in second with 28%, beating the former anthem God Save The Queen into third?
