Truly Trivial Trial

#1 Post by Gandalf de Grijze » 22 Oct 2008 22:59

Yes, let's play trivial pursuit with eachother!!!

We all know the catagories:
Geography
Entertainment
History
Arts & Literature
Science & Nature
Sports & Leisure

Here's the rules adaptations: Player1 asks question with catagory, rest ha sto answer, first to answer correctly gets to ask new question in their preferred catagory.
No winners or losers, just ongoing trivial question asking. Should be fun!

New York (founded as New Amsterdam, with Harlem and Brooklyn being areas in the city named after Haarlem and Breukelen respectively)

Assuming this is right (and I'm pretty sure it is), I'll go on with...

History

The Vikings landed in North America around 1000 A.D. Under whose leadership did they first arrive there?
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.

I assume, btw, that Googling is not allowed and people should just be trusted not to use Google? Otherwise it would be little more than a "let's see how fast you can Google"-contest.

Very close (Eric the Red was the first to land on Greenland), but no.

It was Leif Erikson

History again

Who fought in the Battle of Cannae?

edit:
as far as I remember Erik the Red was Leif's father, but I'm not 100% sure on that one...

Yep he was. And Leif Ericson is of course the right answer, indeed! I have no clue about your question, though.

I knooooow !!!

The battle of Cannae opposed Hannibal to the Roman consuls during one of the Punic wars between Carthage and Rome... if i remember right, the Carthagians actually beated the fuck of the romans, so much that Hannibal's strategy is still studied in military schools !

8 years studying latin, and it never proved as useful as when playing trivial pursuit :D

Okay, the answer isn't full, but i'll accept it anyway...
That's Tolstoy indeed, and the book is Anna Karenina. Glad you liked it Thomas :)

In Short:
The investiture controversy was an argument in the 11th century between the holy roman emperors and the pope about the nomination of clerical officials, such as bishops.

and now I have to come up with another question, just because you're too stupid :P
