Question and Answer (a game.)


This is a fun game i highjacked from another forum.

It works like this:

The first poster starts with a question. The next poster has to answer the question, and then make up another question for the next poster. If you happen to mess up and two people answer one question (and therefore generate two questions for other people to answer) the next poster will just answer both of the questions and continue on. Its not that hard,let's have some fun with it!

So.... here's the first question:

Which country would you most like to visit ?

Why is the sky blue?

Illini_Fan
07-22-2007, 11:05
The blue color of the sky is due to Rayleigh scattering. As light moves through the atmosphere, most of the longer wavelengths pass straight through. Little of the red, orange and yellow light is affected by the air.

And now for a multiple choice question just to mix things up (this one comes from National Geographic Adventure):

Survival math: You are floating in a raft three-hours off the cost of Puerto Rico. How much fish must you catch and eat to keep yourself hydrated:

Seven pounds a day

you dont need to eat to be hydraded... you need to drink.
(unless its not a trick question)

paintballindivr
07-27-2007, 03:57
ok I know the answer,

i beleive its 5 pounds and yes in a salt water environment it is necessary to eat becuase salt water dehydrates the body the only way to get fresh water is to eat (9th grade biology)

has anyone dove on the blue haron bridge in west palm beach?

Correct on the need to eat in order to obtain fresh water, but 5 pounds wasn't one of the options. If national geographic is accurate, the answer is 7 pounds.

Now back to the latest question, which is in the post above this one.

"The first poster starts with a question. The next poster has to answer the question, and then make up another question for the next poster. If you happen to mess up and two people answer one question (and therefore generate two questions for other people to answer) the next poster will just answer both of the questions and continue on.
