What question tripped you up?

Postby Jakker » Sun Mar 31, 2019 5:31 pm

You were on a great streak and answering all the questions with confidence. Then, you lose it all with one wrong answer. What was the question that tripped you up? ***REMEMBER NO SPOILERS***

I failed the question on how many issues were in the International Incident chain twice before I got it right.

Which, seeing as I wrote/edited the thing, made it even more annoying...

Anything that involved what other people have done.

Oh, and the expert level issue question on how many options remove your world assembly membership.
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

"During April Fools' 2018, Luna Amore was able to steal $1472.21 bank from which player?"

Ended a beautiful 109 streak. The answer is wrong. Technically the question is too. I didn't steal nofin' :p

Lenyo: This dilemma needs an option that Luna would support in RL.

The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness. Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding

Plenty of difficult questions, of course, but one memorable one was, "What is the posting date on forum post #1?".

Thing is, forum post #1 is not visible to the public.
