Who doesn't love a little bit of trivia?  Ask or answer any questions you like.  They can be impossible or easy, on any topic.  Put as many questions as you can think of.  After a few people submit their answers, go ahead and list the correct ones.  Rules:
You must know the answer to any questions you ask.
No looking things up to answer questions!
Keep the question numbers continuous to avoid confusion (like if my last question is number 19, then the next question posted is number 20).
Discussions of questions and answers IS allowed.
Have fun!

Thanks for the correction.

23. It's Japanese for Light, thus, the pun of MegaMan.exe's netop, Lan Hikari, as Mega Man's origional creator was Thomas Light.
26. Marathon, HALO: Combat Evolved, Myth: The Fallen Lords

I'm gonna be kinda disappointed if there is no Oni or Haibane Renmei love around apart from me.
Majin Luigi

29. What the heck is Konoko talking about?

29. Nobody has answered any of his questions, which apparently have to do with Oni and Haibane Renmei.
I've only watched a couple of episodes of Haibane Renmei, didn't really interest me.

22. GlaDOS.
Now, since nobody seems to be about to answer my s-CRY-ed questions, maybe something a bit less esoteric... Trigun, perhaps?

Offtopic: HR is kinda slow and relaxed, not full of action so much as just full of characters and mystery, so not suprised some wouldn't follow through. My own personal deep love for wings kinda helped me get to the end, which I found absolutely amazing.

30. uh, can't exactly remember...50 billion? I know its a lot.
31. Would saying 'They're the three guns Vash has, including the angel cannon' be enough?
Haven't watched s-CRY-ed and only caught the first disc or two of Trigun, though I have heard a lot more about the series and do want to watch the rest sometime. =S

Some pop culture from back a little.
34. Name a vehicle from Tron. (Bonus points if you manage to name more than one.)
35. In Wargames, what is the password used to get into WOPR?
36. Name Goofys son?
37. Who were Earthworm Jims 2 sidekicks?
40. In Reboot, what was the dogs name?
41. In Monty Python and the Holy Grail, what number was to be counted to during the use of The Holy Hand Grenade?
42. <- Why is this number significant?

41. Three. Not four, and not two, unless it is only for the sake of then progressing to three. Five is right out.
42. Because it's the answer to the question of life, the universe, and everything.

36. Max, I think.
41. Three. (No more, no less.  Thou shalt count to two only if it is followed by three.  Four is too many.  Three is the counting and the counting shall be three.  Five is right out.) Forum Index -> Off-Topic
