View Full Version : Random Trivia Showdown
17th January 2007, 07:51 PM
I call upon my two past champions: Mazter Xero and jarrett155.
First I'd just like to say, congratulations! You to have out-answered your way through all of RWP inside these 2 threads (Random Trivia and Random Trivia 2). Now, you guys shall face-off in a one-on-one fight for the all-out championship. Everyone who would bother;P, please try to direct jarrett155 and Mazter Xero to here so they can get started. I will send PMs to both, and I will wait until they both respond back here atleast once. This way, they can both start at the same time, and it'll be all fair! Sound good everyone?
Oh, and by the way. You spectators may say stuff, make comments, but give no hints or answers. Please do not PM the person you want to win the answer. Let them do it themselves. Thank you!

you made two topics.....
17th January 2007, 08:05 PM
Pardon? Oh sorry, I duped this topic:p Gosh, I just triped another one a second ago. My computer is malfunctioning. Sorry everyone, allow me to delete the dupe of this.

Best judged statement judged by Mr.Patch!
urmmm carry on...
I say Mazter Xero wins
(no offense jarrette)
18th January 2007, 02:18 AM
Stop judging me.
18th January 2007, 02:19 AM
Only if you join my "BK Character Takedown" thread.
18th January 2007, 08:40 AM
It is not considerate to make bets as if we were racing horses.
I imagined you would make something like this, but not THIS soon, with only TWO people.
Mind you, I am a reasonably busy person, so the timing of the questions would be my only weakness as I would not be there to answer them. But I shall try.
20th January 2007, 02:34 AM
Great! You guys showed up! As I take heed of your word, Mazter Xero, we shall not cease to continue. I can only hope that you show up at the right times;)
Question 1: What two elements do you mix to create Fe? (First, figure out what Fe is).
20th January 2007, 02:36 AM
I know!!! If only I were a part of this...
20th January 2007, 02:42 AM
If by Fe you mean Ferrum (Iron), it is NOT the result of a mix of two elements. It is an element on its own - but that almost never can be found on its own, being extracted from ore.
20th January 2007, 02:43 AM
That was Mazter Xerownage :p Nice.
20th January 2007, 02:53 AM
Gees. You certainly impress me.
You are right. You cannot find this on Earth. That is because these exist in space during their creation period. You must fuse two elements together to form this. But it is only done under so much heat and pressure, impossible on Earth. This can only be done in the process of a star's life cycle. You are not correct entirely. You gave a...rather professional answer, but not what I was looking for. Please do try again.
20th January 2007, 03:01 AM
Iron and nickel, you mean then┐
20th January 2007, 03:05 AM
Nope...perhaps another clue:
Okay, assuming you know your elements, we'll put it this way:
You take H + H = He
Then, He + He + He = C
Finally, C fuses into two elements. These two then fuse to make Fe (Iron). So...what are those two? (If you answer wrong again, I'll give you the scientific letters for those two elements).
20th January 2007, 03:12 AM
I do not look like I am going to get it anytime soon. May jarrett have better luck than myself and get the point. (have short time tonight, that is why.)
20th January 2007, 03:23 AM
I really thought that MX was right... Hmm. I'm not sure if I really agree with the answer you gave me. Oh well. I don't really feel like arguing at all. (By the way, nickel and iron makes lead or at least I think ;))
20th January 2007, 05:27 AM
This is in my field. (im only 13 i dont have a field)
I think you might be thinking of oxygen and some other element between carbon and iron in weight.
However there are many elements between the fusion of carbon to oxygen and the creation of iron.
Edit: Ill tell you how it works. As a star goes through the normal stages of its life it fuses hydrogen into helium. As the star uses all its hydrogen it must start using helium. That helium is fused into an element hevier than it. then that element is fuseed into another element that is hevier than it. And seeing as iron is one of the heavies elements there are many brfore it. oxygen and iron are nowhere near each other.
Sorry if i made any spelling errors.
22nd January 2007, 12:43 AM
Well, jarrett155 you are half correct. The things you need to fuse for Fe (Iron) are O (Oxygen) and N. Find out what N is for full credit.
Mazter Xero, answering for N will get you nowhere since I cannot give you both half credit. We'll have to see if jarrett155 gets it.
22nd January 2007, 01:12 AM
Neon. But there are many other elements created before iron.
22nd January 2007, 03:40 AM
N stands for Nitrogen. Satisfied with that┐
(Neon is classified as NE)
22nd January 2007, 05:02 AM
This is too confusing seeing as how many elements there are between oxygen and iron in weight.
22nd January 2007, 11:29 AM
Well it is Random Trivia SHOWDOWN. But yes, Mazter Xero is correct. So...how 's about I give you each a point, that way it is tied up as if we hadn't started yet. Keeps it even;)
Question 2: What was the last major battle of the American Revolution?
22nd January 2007, 01:04 PM
Major┐ I do not have a specific idea of what your concept of major is, but in 1782, the last year, there were the following:
Battle of Sadras – February 17, 1782
Battle of the Saintes – April 9-April 12, 1782
Battle of Blue Licks – August 19, 1782
Battle of the Combahee River – August 27, 1782
22nd January 2007, 07:52 PM
My my, you are like, super brained. I swear. You know stuff that I couldn't even dream of imagining of dreaming next year!!!
Lol. But none of those was it. This particular battle begins with a Y, and took place in the Georgia Florida area. The French helped in this battle, for it was the defeat in which the British knew that that was it.
22nd January 2007, 08:47 PM
The only battle that took place in that state, in that period, with those parties as they were, was the Siege of Savannah, in the state of Georgia, with the French&American against the British.
22nd January 2007, 08:56 PM
[EDIT BUTTON MALFUNCTIONING, WILL CORRECT LATER]
Unless, that is, that you actually meant Yorktown, Virginia, in 1781.
22nd January 2007, 10:27 PM
I was thinking yorktown too. Thats the only battle it could be. Trust me i would know. I just had to write a 20 paragraph essay on the american revolution.
The questions are always already answered when i get home from school. >.>
22nd January 2007, 10:49 PM
Oops. I'm very sorry I said Georgia Florida area. Sorry guys!
Yes, the correct answer is Yorktown. The Battle of Yorktown.
Mazter Xero ... 2pts
jarrett155 ... 1pt
Question 3: Bytes are little computerized...things:p that send messages to the CPU of a machine, such as a computer. The final question for you two, the current champs and one soon the master of Random Trivia, I have this:
How many bytes does a standard iPod Nano have?
Good luck, champions:)
22nd January 2007, 10:54 PM
2147483648 for the 2 gig.
And 4294967296 for the 4 gig.
Im not sure which is standard. If neither oneis standard then tell me which one is.
23rd January 2007, 12:15 AM
Jarrett is right about this, after I was done making my calculations.
2147483648 bytes equals 2 Gigabytes, and 4294967296 equals 4 Gigabytes.
THIS case brings us to the timing issue I told you about originally, =d-b=.
23rd January 2007, 11:34 PM
Yes, I do understand Mazter Xero. But as far as I'm concerned (no offense to jarrett155), you are extremely intelligent, and if he can't come up with the answer, you certainly can. As jarrett155 has arrived at the conclusion before you have, he earns the point, tying up the score. that means we need a tie-breaker question (sorry that this got so mixed up. Things went weird when you guys each got a point for the first question)
So...here we go...phew...
Championship Question: What is the most dangerous thing in outer-space?
23rd January 2007, 11:59 PM
Can you please specify what you mean.
Unless you mean the fact that there is no air pressure so you would explode.
Also Master Xero You answered the american revolution question before i had a chance.
24th January 2007, 12:04 AM
One, the absolute unbreathability of the air, and the fatal consequences a malfunctioning spacesuit would have.
Among others are black holes, radiation, long-term affecting lack of gravity, etcetera.
IS that well enough for you, or did you mean anything else┐
24th January 2007, 12:14 AM
I have an argument for some of hs answers so if he got it right. dont declare him the winner.
But anyways i think its black hole.
24th January 2007, 12:23 AM
That decision is -his- to make.
And, you answered a question before I had a chance as well. We are perfectly even on that.
24th January 2007, 07:25 PM
Now hold up. I am in charge of making sure who answered first. If you have a problem with that, PM me (like Mazter Xero did) and tell me that.
Yes, blackhole is the correct answer. That puts Mazter Xero in the winning slot. But jarrett155, you said you have an argument here, go ahead with it. What happened? I'm going to go back and check all editings and post times to make sure EVERYTHING is fair.
EDIT::Okay, here's EVERYTHING
jarrett155, Mazter Xero had EVERY right to answer a question before you did. Why wouldn't that be fair? He can edit to try again. You didn't post until two hours later. He simply arrived before you did. And anyway, I accidentally gave a false clue to that, so he continued research to arrive at the correct answer. That was certainly fair.
Mazter Xero, you said something about him editing his back post after you had posted. Actually, he did that a minute before you posted. So THAT was fair and on-time properly.
As there is nothing wrong; everything confirmed fair and all, I gladly give the title: "Master of Random Trivia" to...
Congrats, master. As a reward (since, according to Andre, giving rep as a reward is against the rules), I will hand to you authority of Random Trivia. You may start it up and be the new leader. If you do not wish to except this oath, I will hand it to the runner-up, jarrett155. If both of you wish to refuse or for me to continue being the host, then that is what I will do. I would gladly continue to be the host.
So, Mazter Xero, what is your choice?
25th January 2007, 12:14 AM
Actually my argument was against your answer of black holes not against who answered first. Also Master Xero may i point you back to the first random trivia where the rules are explained. It says we are allowed to argue against an answer if we think it is incorrect.
25th January 2007, 01:22 AM
I have a load of obligations to do, specially the following ten days. I am in no position whatsoever to host a new edition of this contest, as I am -barely- able to update the FAQ Fiction I have in here. (NO! It is NOT dead, and I am -NOT- scrapping it. I have great plans for it, but I cannot post them as often as I'd wish to)
It matters little who the winner is, because I am unable to accept such prize. Therefore, may jarrett155 be the one to host it if he wishes as much.
Good stuff, it was.
25th January 2007, 07:41 PM
Very Well, Mazter Xero.
At jarrett155, I do not recollect saying something like that in the first Random Trivia, however, this is the Showdown, and there were specific rules for only this. This was a spinoff, not a sequel. Kinda like BK and BT were sequels, and BK GR and Pilot were spinoffs, I believe. I hope now you understand.
But I also mentioned how I had thoroughly checked this particular thread for any sign of unfairness, and I also stated that there were NO signs.
Well, jarrett155, the question is now yours:
25th January 2007, 10:57 PM
I think i would rather you continue since you are doing a fine job.
But anyways ill share with you my argument
Dangerous: Likely or able to cause harm.
I dont find a black hole very likely or currently able to cause harm. Maybe somewhere in the far future. Also, no one knows if black holes really exist.
25th January 2007, 11:47 PM
Sure they do. They result when a star is dead and implodes on itself. It is classified as the most dangerous thing in outer space. Btw, I have two grudges against you:
1) I said most dangerous thing, not a dangerous thing in general.
2) I didn't necessarily say it was dangerous to us. Because it isn't. But it is dangerous, and would be HIGHLY dangerous if it were anywhere near Earth.
