Challenge Set #6

By Tim Butler | Posted at 11:22 PM

Ok, it is time to revive something that died after just one week of operation: the asisaid Challenge.

First, to review:

Scoreboard
Kevin: 145 (up from 75 on Dec. 18)
Christopher: 65* (up from 30)
Flip: 35
Josiah: 30*
Eduardo: 20
Jason: 15
Ed: 10
Chris (answering vicariously for his wife): 10

*Christopher and Josiah's points come from the gracious help with testing SAFARI.

Kevin added to his lead by correctly relaying the name “Moving On” on the song lyric as well as the band name “Sixpence None the Richer” and the story behind that name. He further solidified it by identifying Mosca from Ben Jonson's Volpone, answering multiple Jonsonian questions for 35 points.

Resume the challenge with the new (and old) questions below.

Questions Still Open
Here are some questions you can still seize upon (please answer 'em below rather than on the old post).

4.1) The bonus part of the Jonson question is still open — why can he be referred to as the killer cleric? (10 pts.)

5.2) Who wrote it, where and, if appropriate, who said it [20 pts.]:
To pass our youth in dull indifference, to refuse the sweets of life because they once must leave us, is as preposterous as to wish to have been born old, because we one day must be old. For my part, my youth may wear and waste, but it shall never rust in my possession.

Frankly, I'm not surprised no one is getting this quote and you aren't missing much for not knowing it. It's part of a play I'd grieve if I had to read through at the moment.


New Questions
1.) What was the first commercially available MP3 player? (10 pts.)

2.) What was convened tomorrow (January 28) in 1521? (10 pts.)

3.)What major U.S. tragedy occurred in more recent times on that day? (5 pts.)

4.) What I am quoting and who penned it? (15 pts.)
(To JS/07 M 378 This Marble Monument
Is Erected by the State) He was found by the Bureau of Statistics to be
One against whom there was no official complaint

5.) What will the new trilogy by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins be about? (5 pts.)
