Re: 16. "Kiwi" fruit is a marketing ploy. It was not called that for many years (or centuries) before that. It is a made up name. It is not a coincidence - it refers to the bird.

It is like in the movie Demolition Man, in the future, Taco Bell became the sole surviving restaurant chain in the world. So the word "restaurant" disappeared from use and was replace by the words Taco Bell. It is a underwhelming case of synecdoche.

Re: 15. There is a planet called Saturday??! Wow!

I was about to post that! Additionally, Musca is a constellation and an insect, so that is presumably the answer which was intended.

For the record, I should have asked with some thing like this:
  1. What word will you get when you jumble the day of the week Monday?
  2. Or what day of the week will you get when you jumble the word Dynamo?
  3. Give a word with at least 3 I's and no an-other vowels.
  4. Why do we usually end with of plural of words with letter of S?
  5. Give one word each with containing of substring 'aa', 'bb', 'cc', 'dd', 'ee', 'ff', 'gg', 'hh', 'ii', 'jj', 'kk', 'll', 'mm', 'nn', 'oo', 'pp', 'qq', 'rr', 'ss', 'tt', 'uu', 'vv', 'ww', 'xx', 'yy', 'zz'. How much do you think that you can score out of 26 points? Why?
  6. Earth's revolution period around Sun is 365.2422 days. Mars' revolution period around Sun is 686.9 days. If Mars starts off beginning with opposition from Sun with Earth, after wards what past last time period will Mars come returning back again repeating off with opposition from Sun with Earth?
  7. From Earth's equator to what degree latitude (Northern and Southern combined) contains of with that 50% of total surface area of Earth if that this is put together?
  8. At what degree latitude (either Northern Hemisphere or Southern Hemisphere) is Earth's rotation rate around itself is 50% of that at the Earth's equator?
  9. 180 degrees = π radians = 200 gradients. Why? Is an other unit not the standard unit?
To that type of thing!

By using same double quote tag is different always from single quote tag!

By using same be being - By using same right now itself - at this very moment -
quite variably - about around - round ground - poultry variety!


  • How about that this posting away of with that this
    future Mersenne forum thread post pointer link? Away out off up down my own.
  • Code tag edits text coming returning back again repeating in to the that this
    keeping of with that width of window in check - not quote tag - not - not.
  • Quote tag has got pointer link - not code tag - not - not.
