Everyone submitting an answer (or a guess) must also submit another question and suggest what number of "Points" will be awarded for a correct response. 



AND NOW -- THE KICKOFF! 



Everyone knows that Donald Duck has 3 nephews:  Huey, Dewey, and Louie.  For 100 points, what are the names of Daisy Duck's nieces?  (Hint:  There are 3 of them.) 



EXTRA CREDIT:  For 50 points (to be awarded only to those who answered the previous question correctly), what are the names of Mickey Mouse's nephews?

Yes, I believe your right. His rule does say though:  Everyone submitting an answer (or a guess) must also submit another question and suggest what number of "Points" will be awarded for a correct response.

You are right. There for a moment I thought I had the contest locked. Oh well.

Tell you what, Brent -- 'cuz my Dad's name was also Brent -- we'll give you the full 150 points if you can identify the inspiration for Morty's name -- AND ask everybody another trivia question.  (Don't forget to assign a point value!)

Don't forget Micky's nephews, Maisie and Marmaduke. There were other, unnamed, nephews as well.


jistgreg - Posted - 11/20/2015:  14:20:36


Wow!  Never occurred to me we'd occasionally have to assign NEGATIVE points!

That one I don't know. I probably ought to be disqualified from this anyway. When I was a child my aunt, who was then my uncle's girl friend, worked at Disney Studios. She was Annette Funicello's secretary or some such thing  (she handled Annette's fan mail). Because of her I got to visit Disney Studio's a lot. I even got to visit the set of Bon Voyage! (Fred McMurray actually looked in my direction) while the movie was being filmed and, while I didn't get to meet her, my aunt got me a signed picture of Haley Mills whom I was smitten with at the time though I was disappointed to find out there was only one of her (she played twins a couple of times and was billed at Haley and Haley Mills in those movies). Thus I am somewhat of an insider and therefore should very probably  recuse myself...

Was the inspiration for Morty [Mortimer} actualy Micky Mouse?..



Q: Elvis his middle name, and also the middle name of his twin brother. 150 points each answer.


jistgreg - Posted - 11/20/2015:  18:15:21


Elvis = Aron    twin brother = Garon 



Q:  On what charge was Al "Scarface" Capone convicted and imprisoned?  (10 points) 



Mickey Mouse's original name was Mortimer Mouse.  Mrs. Walt Disney thought "Mickey" would be more popular because it was "cuter."

Al Capone was convicted of tax evasion. He hadn't paid taxes on his ill gotten gains. 



What was Dorothy's last name in The Wizard of Oz? .25 points


jistgreg - Posted - 11/21/2015:  04:15:55


"Gale," which wasn't in the book, but  was in the movie when Miss Gulch calls Uncle Henry "Gale."  The name was created for the 1902 Broadway musical, in which Dorothy introduces herself to the Scarecrow as "Dorothy Gale," to which he replies, "Well, that accounts for your breezy manner."  >groan< 



Billie Burke >Glinda the Good< was married to what famous Broadway impresario?  (25 points) 



 


OM45GE - Posted - 11/21/2015:  04:23:33


She was married to Flo Ziegfeld



​"Gale" was also on the mailbox in front of the house. 



Most people know the Lone Ranger rode Silver, not as many know Tonto rode Scout. Do you know who ride White Feller? 100 points. 


jistgreg - Posted - 11/21/2015:  04:29:19


Tonto. 



When the Lone Ranger movies were dubbed into Spanish, what was Tonto's name changed to, and why?  (100 points) 



 


BrentSims - Posted - 11/21/2015:  07:11:23


Toro because in spanish Tonto means fool.

jistgreg - Posted - 11/21/2015:  07:21:35


Actually, in Spanish it's spelt "tanto," but Americans pronounce both words the same: "tahn-toe"  



Have you a question for us?  How many points?

For 238.7 points; Where was the "garbage gun" (Trash Disposal Unit) located on an Ethan Allen class submarine? Hint, the same compartment the piano was in on the 610.



I apologize. I am not trying to be a party-pooper. This thread has put a couple of smiles on my face. I've had fun. I study and I listen however asking questions is something I very seldom do. Some kind of weird personality quirk or some such thing. The question posed above is valid, however, and it is also answerable and it is certainly trivia... and it can be solved with quick search.

LOVED the question, Brent!  Is 70 min. a "quick search"?  Things I didn't know before:  Ethan Allen class submarines are designated SSBNs.  SSBN 610 was the Thomas A. Edison.  Found a photo of the installed piano; judging from the cleared-off tables flanking the instrument, I'm guessing that the compartment in question is what we Coasties call the Mess Deck. 



Q:  What did the A stand for in Thomas A. Edison?  TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE:  Only the FIRST correct responder will be awarded the whole 2 1/2 points! 



 


Roxsanne - Posted - 11/21/2015:  15:08:35


in addition,,,I can’t find anything so I called Rubin my brother, he’s over in Portsmouth Navy yard Virginia, he says there was a piano in the USS Thomas A. Edison, the only piano ever built into a Sub,..so maybe the TDU was in the forward section, between number 2 missile tube, don’t really know.   interesting question..



Thomas Alva. Edison.

Well, if I wanted to be picky and pickier, I could dock you 2/10ths of a point for not including the Roman Numeral I after "Flyer."  They apparently had confidence that there would be more flyers to follow.... 



Nah.  I'm not THAT picky! 



Your question, Leni? 



Leni? 



Anybody?

Angle Inlet Minnesota and Point Roberts Washington. 



For 48 points, if you were told to drive through all lower 48 US states but could only enter and leave each state once, which state would you have to either start or end with?


BrentSims - Posted - 11/21/2015:  21:40:54


jistgreg and Bruntt le Pilgrim are both correct about the piano and the "garbage gun" on the SSBN 610. The "garbage gun" was located on the mess deck (dining hall) and it went down though crew's berthing. The piano was there on the mess deck too.

I'll be back with a question.

But the Trash Disposal Unit is/was in fact the missile tubes!, those ran ‘tween the decks. Nearby was their huge mess, and that Steinway piano....cool

Loud obnoxious buzz! That is incorrect. The newer boats may be different however on the Ethan Alan class boats the "garbage gun" was a stand alone veridical something tube that went down from the mess deck, through crews berthing and out of the bottom of the submarine. It did, however, operate in a similar manner to both the torpedo and missile tubes. For the record, I served on a Ethan Allen class submarine (SSBN 610 - the one with the piano) and I personally shot the garbage more than a few times.



Now (drum roll) for 88 points which mountain (hint: it is located in the US) when measured from base to summit is roughly a mile taller than Mount Everest?

In Spanish "Tonto" really does mean stupid. "Tanto" means "so much."
