Hey, I decided to start a general knowledge quizz. The questions are going to be about as many different subjects as possible.

Here's how it works

You post your answers in this topic. If 5 people tried to answer and no-one has the right answer, I give a clue. However, the more clues I give the less points a good answer is worth.

Points

Without a clue : 50 points
1 clue : 40 points
2 clues : 30 points
3 clues : 20 points
4 clues : 10 points
5 clues : Hey, no one got it? That was maybe too hard...

Rules

1 - You can't try two answers in a row.
2 - Anyone can participate.
3 - That's all :D .

Points will be updated after every question here. Good luck!

1st - Will : 1070 pts
2nd - Mark : 905 pts
3rd - EastCoastPunk : 725 pts
4th - Chris : 605 pts
5th - Omar A : 440 pts
6th - Amy : 200 pts
7th - LornVourkolakas : 145 pts
7th - Tim : 125 pts
9th - Hana : 100 pts
10th - Aaron : 50 pts

1st question

Where did the Wright Brothers achived the first powered flight?

What was the name of the plane?

You need to have 2 good answers :D .

The Wright Brothers flew the first aeroplane in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, on December 17th, 1903. They were born in Dayton, Ohio, and the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is home to the museum which houses the first plane that was flown.

Edit: I didn't even look that up. :lol:

LOL.

I accept the 2 answers. I admit I didn&#39;t think about the fact that Greenland is a part of NA because it&#39;s a part of a European country but Will is right. And so is Aaron (Anse aux Meadows :D ) .

So... Points to you two&#33;

I watched this race.

On February 11th, 2001, NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt, Sr., died on the last lap of the prestigious Daytona 500 as his new driver Michael Waltrip went on to win his first NASCAR race, while his son, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., came in 2nd place.

Earnhardt raced in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series.

R.I.P.

:mellow: People, where are you :D .

Right answer. He could have been saved if he&#39;d have accepted to use a small device called the "Hans"...

Question 9

What&#39;s the name of the northernmost city in North America (questions about Europe soon :D ) .

By the way if you have some SUBJECT suggestions put &#39;em here :D .

There&#39;s a place called North Pole in Alaska. My Uncle Jim lives there. But it&#39;s between Fairbanks and Anchorage, so that&#39;s not the answer. :lol:

The European Union consists of 15 Member States.

Twelve Member States in the European Union have adopted the single currency.

Denmark and UK have opt-out clauses, which imply that they are not obliged to adopt the euro.

Sweden will join the euro area as soon as it has fulfilled all the conditions.

The euro area is composed of:

Belgium, Germany, Greece, Spain, France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Finland
(From the EU website)

Or is it under 30mph? *Void this reply if you consider it a second guess, I had it half right so I&#39;d guess I would be able to guess the other part right. :lol;)

"The world&#39;s tallest building". I consider this as an official source. However, I may consider splitting the points in 2. Any suggestions?

As for the richest man in the world, my source is Forbes 2003. Your source is The Mac Observer 2001... I belive mine is more reliable :D .

In that case, Chris is right.

Never mind, I read the question wrong

Will

The SR-71 Blackbird set a world-speed record on a flight from New York City to London by flying the 3470 mile distance in 1 hour 55 minutes.

...

Edit: Typo.

Will has the good answer&#33; Such a beautiful aircraft (http://www.sky-flash.com/sr71/11.jpg).

After 25 questions, here&#39;s the score :

1st - Will : 500 pts
2nd - Mark : 315 pts
3rd - Chris : 155 pts
4th - Tim : 125 pts
5th - Omar A : 100 pts
6th - Aaron : 50 pts
6th - Amy : 50 pts

Will is leading the pack by 185 points, but Mark is getting closer (shoe size has increased?). Chris, Tim and Omar A are pretty close, and finally Aaron and Amy have 50 points.

New questions soon&#33;

Spain was definitely neutral ;) . Even if General Franco recived lot of help from the Germans (they saw an occasion to test their Luftwaffe, or air force) during the Spanish Civil War, before WW2, Spain declared it&#39;s neutrality in the conflict. Civilians were "free" to join any army they wanted to.

Austria was said many times, but it didn&#39;t exist anymore. The Germans made Austria part of the Third Reich before the war, in an event called the Anschluss.
