# 11 could make for a discussion.  What do you consider "a home"?
"What good fortune for governments that the people do not think."

Joy was correct in that Amsterdam was the city she lived in before taken by the Nazis. That house and annex is now a memorial museum.

Patricia - I received an email from Kelly, who wanted to answer two of the questions.  The first one is

#1:  James Taylor wrote "Fire and Rain".

#11: was already guessed by Joy - (Amsterdam.) 

angelface555

I was just thinking about Kelly as he was a major part of these quizzes. Tell him hello from me and that he's credited for #1 and still has a second question available in his turn.



2: Who is the father of modern oceanography?

3: Which planet in the Solar System has the highest density?

4: What is the song, "What's the frequency Kenneth?" about?

5: What is the deepest point from the sea level on the Earth?

7: What is the largest number of five digits?

10: For which narrow sea strait is Hellespont the ancient name?

17: How many Oscars did the Titanic receive?



so_P_bubble

10. The  Dardanelles

5. The deepest from sea level down would be the Marianna Trench.  From earth surface down, it would be our Dead Sea, in Israel.

MarsGal

2. Matthew Fontaine Maury

3. Earth

angelface555

Bubble you win a gold star for your correct answers to #s 5 & 10!

MarsGal, you also receive a gold star for your correct answers to #s 2 & 3

I'll open up the board for the last three questions.

4: What is the song, "What's the frequency Kenneth?" about?

7: What is the largest number of five digits?

17: How many Oscars did the Titanic receive?

so_P_bubble

7. Five times 9?  I mean 99999

angelface555

Bubble you are correct, and that leaves only two remaining. Anyone?

#4: What is the song, "What's the frequency, Kenneth?" about? Extra points if you know the aftermath.

#17: How many Oscars did the Titanic receive?

Marilyne

#4:  Patricia, all I remember about the "Frequency Kenneth" song, is that it was on an album by REM, about a true story involving news broadcaster Dan Rather getting attacked by a stranger??

angelface555

You are correct in part, Marilyne, for #4. But there is more to an odd, strange story of a mentally ill man who went on to kill a camera operator outside of another film studio. He heard voices in his head from he believed television.  And desperately thought that he could make them stop if he found the frequency. Today he remains locked up and hopefully receiving the help he needs and sought.

I'm surprised that number 17 is the last remaining question.

#17: How many Oscars did the Titanic receive?


Marilyne

#17: Titanic, won 10 Academy Awards

JaneS

17  I think Titanic won 11 Oscars

And

#4I think that song is about drug use

angelface555

Thanks Marilyne! I had just gotten an email from Kelly with the answer so I'll credit both of you!

Thank you, everyone, for a great quiz experience! I have an appointment, but I'll be back to list the finalization of the quiz.

I hope that others will submit their quizzes for all of us to enjoy as well.

angelface555

Jane, I haven't time to Google now on the Titanic Oscar wins again.

Also, the info on #4 is as stated, the man in question was a paranoid schizophrenic and imprisoned after killing the camera operator.

JaneS

I just went and googled the number of Oscars and Titanic tied with Ben Hur and The Lord of the Rings, the Return of (I forgot what) the most Oscars at 11 each.

angelface555

Okay, I'm back, and I've both checked my original question and answer which listed ten Oscars and also Googled for any other information.
I cannot explain why General knowledge questions listed ten Oscars and others, four sources to be fair, listed eleven. Jane, you are right, and I apologize.  The questions and correct answers are as listed below.

In honor of all those who've gone before, I present a new quiz. Same rules, two questions to begin with and Googling is allowed and expected if all else fails. Enjoy.

Thank you, everyone, for playing with me and also for questioning and also for calling me on my error due to incorrect info. I hope others might take up the mantle and craft a quiz or two or even more.
