Trivial Pursuits
The Rules are simple...It's very much like the Trivial Pursuit you played at home only modified slightly. Instead of using a board, we'll just ask the questions from the catagory of your chosing. BUT REMEMBER-Keep it simple. We don't want something that's going to stump everyone and no one wants to play.

The Catagories

The Silver Screen
The Written Word (which can include comics)
Science and Nature

Please don't make every question you ask Comic related. We want even those who don't have that indepth comic knowledge to be able to play.

The first person (which will be me) will ask a question, the person who gets it right will ask the next. No point values on this game. It's just a fun way to pass the time.

The first catagory is... The Silver Screen.

?-What is Stewie's full name on the Family Guy?
Since no one but me and the missus seem to know this one, I will answer it. Stewie's full name is...

Stewart Gilligan Griffin

Your next category is: Sports and Leisure

In Major League Baseball, who are the top three career home run hitters?
Hank Aron(sp) and Babe Ruth are probably in the top three.. the only other one I can think of is Willy Mays.

And that is about the limit of my baseball knowledge Wink
So close, but no.

Hank Aaron had 755 career home runs.
Babe Ruth had 714.
Willie Mays had 660.

But there is someone other than Willie Mays that now holds the number 3 position on the list. Whoever guesses that 3rd man correctly gets to ask the next question.

Come on folks, this is an easy one.
Ok, since no one else has bothered trying....

I know this one...and he's right, it's super easy...

Barry Bonds.

Ok, next category...

History- Name the Macedonian General who conquered Asia and died at the age of 33 in 323 BC?
That would be Alexander the Great
And that would be...a correct answer!

your turn!
Silver Screen:

Name the male actor who links the following:

Patrick Stewart
Matt Damon
Eric Bana
Mel Gibson
Gee Bill, you wanna make that a little HARDER?????
You want a clue? Looking in the IMDB would have helped but here you go:

This Scots actor also played a role which was later made famous by Anthony Hopkins.
Ok, then the obvious guess is Brian Cox.
Well done. Mr Brian Cox it is indeed.

Starred alongside:

Patrick Stewart - X2 - Stryker
Matt Damon - Bourne Identity/Supremacy - Abbott
Eric Banna - Troy - Agamemnon
Mel Gibson - Braveheart - Argyle Wallace

and of course played the first Hannibal Lecter in the original Manhunter (with William Peterson of CSI fame)

Your turn Chanty
Ok-Catagory is Science and Nature.

What is the average lifespan of the common housefly?
1 day, 7 days, 3 weeks, or 4 months?
I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say seven days.
When life hands you lemons, you gotta squirt lemon juice and life's eye and make it your B!TCH
And that's absolutely correct!

Your turn!!
Here we go.

The category is music.

Name the band who was nominated for a Grammy in 2003 for the song "The Girl all the bad guys want."
When life hands you lemons, you gotta squirt lemon juice and life's eye and make it your B!TCH
I know this one. It is the band that has one of the best band names ever...

Bowling for Soup (I don't own their all their stuff as good as 'The Girl'?)
Yes it is.
"Yes it is" as in "Yes your guess is the correct answer"?

Or "Yes it is" as in "Yes, all their music is that good"?

I have to wait for SRF4 to tell me if I am correct or not....waiting....
I apologize. Yes, you were correct the answer was indeed "Bowling for Soup"

and yes, from what I've heard, all of their music is just as good.

Your turn.
When life hands you lemons, you gotta squirt lemon juice and life's eye and make it your B!TCH
