Citadel Quiz #3
« on: March 06, 2015, 12:45:06 AM »
As the winner of Round 2, I pick up the challenge to host Quiz #3

(applause, waving, gracious smile)

Question 1, and remember, no Google, no cheating.

In the 1993 movie Jurassic Park, the terrified survivors were harassed and murdered by a pack of 'velociraptors'. Shortly after the movie was released, paleontologists discovered a dromaeosaur that matched the 'velociraptors' from the movie. What was the name given to this new predatory dinosaur?

Fun fact, here is the information representing a velociraptor accurately. Dig them feathers, yo!

No takers? No dino-nerds here? I am disappoint.

The answer is Utahraptor. The first fossils were discovered in 75, but weren't completely identified as belonging to a raptor until 91. There was an attempt to name the predator Utahraptor Spielbergi due to his financial support of paleontology but as numbers could be never be decided on, it was eventually named Utahraptor ostrommaysorum, in 1993.

Question #2

What was the name of the black doctor in charge of development in Terminator 2? (the character, not the actor)

Books/paper catch fire. Why it's wrong I'm not sure. I guess it's -not- the right temperature? :)

Correct on both, according to the book, that is the temperature when paper will ignite. This isn't true, as paper A. isn't prone to spontaneous combustion, and B. that's not the temperature of burning paper (a cigarette typically is 'smoldering' at 500 degrees)

Things are starting to roll now.

What is the name of the story that serves as the foundation to Blade Runner?

bonus half point for also naming the author.

Well done gentlemen, Aramax gets it with Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.

There was only one person who was able to jerk Darth Vader's leash, Grand Moff Tarkin. What is the name of the actor who played the Grand Moff?

I was abducted by aliens and they stole my brains, and only just returned them. Aramax picks up the win, and the answer to the bonus question was Arnette Texas, not to be confused with Arlen Texas of King of the Hill fame.
