  1. 1 Places
    Monster truck rally
    creek (swimming hole)
    smoke eazy
    slot car track
    nude beaches
    dog track
    wax museum
    motocross track
    sky jump
    swimming pool

    7 fuels
    whale blubber
    switch grass
    cow patties
    politicians (really Zook)
    Jews (Zook gave me the idea I hope it’s not on the list:( )
    Vegetable oil

    8 brands
    Wal Mart
    Chef boyardee

  2. Maybe I really didn’t “Need” to know all that much about “Puppet Shows” after all, Zook, but, I think you were right by placing it at the “End” of your list…..

    Sorry, no hits on your “Fuel” list, Zook – The Stats stay the same….. Be ready tomorrow for the hints, maybe they will direct all you Guizers in the right direction……

    Robo, since I didn’t put a marker so this comment would be in the proper order, and, you posted your comment while I was writing mine, you will just have to wait until later today for me to grade your Guizes, as I have priorities to take care of right now (like a nap)……

  3. Hmm… here’s an interesting one.

    1: Rapeseed oil / oilseed rape / Brassica napus.

    All of these are the same. This was, I believe, originally grown primarily for fuel, not food, since there was a chemical (some acid) present that was toxic. (Not kill-you toxic, just make-you-no-feel-so-good toxic.)

    Some folks in Canada bred this chemical out; the resulting variety is called… CANOLA! Yum!

    Which means we also have an answer to 8:

    8: Canola (From CANada Oil Low Acid.)

  4. If Zook can do it with canola oil
    I can do it with soy beans
    1 soy oil
    8 soy sauce (kikkoman)

  5. Hrm. Just realized that my answer to (1) above should have been labeled (7). I don’t think Canola is an amusement place.

    Or maybe it is…


    Seems like the leaders are hard after the prize….. I am starting to see further reaching guesses and some repeats, so, maybe tomorrow ‘youse guys will get back on track with a few clues…..

    1. Robo gets One (1) Point for Swimming Pool (how did that get missed for so long?)…….
    7. Robo stinks-up One (1) Point for Cow Patties (Buffalo Chips)….. ….And since I gave Robo a little latitude with that answer, I’m going to give Zook One (1) Point for his Politicians answer and the info on the origins of the word Canola….
    8. All misses from both Guizers……

    “Current Standings”:1st place: Robo 129 Points, 2nd Place: Zook 128 Points, 3rd Place: Jek 84 Points, 4th Place: Anon 35 Points, 5th Place: HuskeySooner 22 Points…… Robo’s back in the lead, but, by only One (1) thin Point……

    1. 18 remaining, 2. 3 remaining, 3. 13 remaining, 4. 9 remaining, 5. 6 remaining, 6. 15 remaining, 7. 64 remaining, 8. 24 remaining, 9. 2 remaining

  7. I “Guize” that claiming extreme allergy attack and generally feeling yucky will not excuse me from preforming my duties as Quiz-O-Master and giving you Quizzers a lifeline with a few clues….. eh? ….I thought NOT!…..

    These hints may be about as “Fuzzy” as my head is, but, here they are “For What It’s Worth”:

    1. 1 of the major sports is missing – 5 deal with wetness: liquid or frozen – Up is another place to look – 2 deal with bulls or horses and cows – 2 deal with plants…..
    2. Brass instrument similar to one named already…..
    3. Anon, I’m disappointed, I thought you would get most of these – Maybe you did and these are too general – Look over the list after I post it and see – Adjustments can be made – Hints: Halloween, ’60’s Psychedelic, and Hell…..
    4. Locations and Variants – Hard to give hints without giving it all away – Here’s one – non-paper…..
    5. Hints: BL3 (1st letter, end letter, No. of letters) – JY6 – NR5 – PE5 – SS6 – SG8…….
    6. Try a football star, organizations and newspapers…..
    7. This list is very specific – Lots of different coals – gasolines – gases – This is another one that you might want to take issue with the answers when they are posted – all complaints will be dealt with depending on the stretchability of the comparison of actual answer and submitted answer (What?)……
    8. You have to look way back to products that have been around a long time – Hints: Headache, small cut, audio, floor, go up in a mall…..
    9. Hint: Lincoln….

    That’s it – Submit your “Guizes” and I will sort them out accordingly…..

    soccer field
    bull fighting
    bull rink

    Runnin’ a little late – Just got back from my VA appointment…… I NEED REST – I glanced at the final submittals from the two leaders and it’s gonna be close……

    Here’s what I decided to do – I actually have Two (2), YES, Two (2) of the Factory Sealed Hendrix Limited Edition Singles – So-o-o-o, since Zook and Robo fought it out to the very end with all you other wimps bowing out early, I’m going to give BOTH of them a sealed copy of the CD along with a CD that has the disc art and mp3 copies of the Three (3) songs (Two on the CD and the Downloaded Bonus Track)….. How’s that!!!!

    Now, I’m gonna take a rest – Tomorrow morning I will post all the answers and grade the last ones submitted by Robo and Zook to see which one of them is the WINNER! Why, you may ask, since I’m giving them the same prizes?…. Not exactly, The CD’s are NUMBERED – Therefore, the “Guizer” with the most Points (i.e. 1st Place) gets the CD with the LOWEST production number!….

    Thanx for participating and GOODNIGHT!… I’ll have the results comment up sometime in the morning…. No Need to thank me or say what a great Quiz-O-Master I am (although it might help you when we start Quiz 2010-2 in a couple of weeks)……

  14. ARE YOU READY?…. Here’s how it all finished out…..

    1. Zook and Robo both miss the E-Ticket ride – No Points…..
    3. Zook doesn’t get poisoned with Psilocybin – No Point…..
    4. Robo misses with comic book – Zook reads One (1) Point with Regional Newspaper……
    5. I’m giving Robo One (1) Point for all of his “J” answers for Humor – Not correctness……
    6. Zook misses Tricky Dick – No Points…..
    7. Zook blows it out with Five (5) Points for: Pentane, Hexane, Heptane, Octane, and Naphthalene……
    8. Sorry, No Jacuzzi, Zook – No Points…..
    9. And, Last. but, not least No Point for Zinc, Zook…..

    “FINAL STANDINGS”: 1st place: Zook 139 Points, 2nd Place: Robo 137 Points, 3rd Place: Jek 84 Points, 4th Place: Anon 35 Points, 5th Place: HuskeySooner 22 Points……

    Zook takes it all to the Bank with a slim Two (2) Point WIN, which means he gets Hendrix CD# 1697/15000, and Robo with his super close second gets Hendrix CD# 1894/15000 (which was the one the 1st Place winner was going to get if the Quiz wasn’t so close – But, it’s only right for me to give up #1697, I think, Oh, Well it’s done now)….. I will hand deliver Robo’s…. Zook, I need your mailing address or I can send it to Jek and let him do the honors….. Send me an e-mail at mrambler@mrambler.com and let me know which way to go……


    Tomorrow (Maybe a little earlier/Maybe a little later) I will Post all the remaining answers as I do have a life – I have to get ready for a PARTY tonight and some serious recording tomorrow…….

  16. Shipping info submitted, oh Great Guiz Master.

    A couple comments:

    2: Cor Anglais is an English horn. Kicking myself on the cornet, though.

    9: What a bizarre list.

  17. Good to hear from you, Zook, PD Bob declared your prize as unclaimed and has been trying to weasel it out me for two days now….. I will get your fantastic Prize on it’s way today or tomorrow at the latest….. Enjoy!…..

    On the Bizarre list thingy – Were you talking about Brand Names, which is No. 8, which I thought was rather bizarre, or No. 9 Alkalis, which I wouldn’t have known whether it was bizarre or not?…..

    Robo pointed out to me that he did get “Swimming Hole” on #1…. I checked and he did have it listed in Comment #51 as: Creek (Swimming Hole)….. So-o-o, In the end, it was One (1) Point Victory – That’s as close as you can get and still Win…… Great Quiz, Everyone…..

  18. 8 and 9 were both odd.

    8 because it seems to miss a bunch of obvious ones. 9 because when

    I think of alkalis I think of things that are actually basic. The list focused on alkalai metals, which is fine, but I know my alkalai metals to be group 1a on the period table, which is but a subset of your answers. The final “nonacid” is just plain odd in this context, though.

  19. MR,

    I have to take umbrage with with your source of shroom facts.

    Death angelemetric……. is the Destroying Angel

    Fly Fungus…….. is the Fly Amanita

    Magic Mushroom………..is the name given to Psilocybin (or Psilocybe) by certain injesters back in the 70’s.

    The False Morel I know is not poisonous ……although that may be one you dont want to drink alcohol with…..a good idea with any suspect shroom.

    Not that three extra points would win me a prize but, your Big Book of facts is suspect.

  20. Yeah, Anon, that list was extra goofy…… I have to admit I split up the answer on Death Cap as it was listed as “Death Cap or Death Cup or Destroying Angel or Death Angelemetic” to give more answers….. I think all books of fact are usually suspect to individual interpretation and scope…..
