Google Quiz

Postby Tonyblack » Tue Aug 28, 2012 9:11 am

Normally with online quizzes we try to encourage people to NOT use Google or any other search engine.

This quiz is different. :mrgreen: You will probably HAVE to use Google to find the answer.

The idea is to supply enough clues so that a Google search may find the answer. I may post a picture or ask a really hard question and you all have to try and find the answer using Google.

For example (and the first question of the quiz) I have edited a picture of an island by taking out almost all of the place names. The question is; are there enough clues to identify the island?

Image

What Is the name of this island?

Let's see how this one goes and if people are interested I'll either post another one or, if you can think of another one, go ahead and post it. :)

Good luck.

Read a biography of Tom Crean a few months back so recognised the island he had to trek acroos from the maps in it. Its South Georgia. :D

Not a visual one but a film one


Film won best original song Oscar and was MGMs most expensive film up to that point but failed to recoup the investment on its original release.

As you got that one so quickly, and to give another example, here's one that I prepared earlier. :lol:

1. Who is this Star Trek actor?
2. What film did she appear in with another Star Trek actor?
3. What was the name of that other actor?

A further clue. The actor was one of the major cast members for a couple of seasons.

She's Jennifer Lien, who played Kes in Voyager.
She was part of American History X , along with Avery Brooks, who was Sisko in DS9

It's harder than you might think as there were a lot of actors that did Star Trek and Babylon 5 - there's even a list of them on the Babylon 5 website. But then tracking down which of them was in Stargate as well, is another problem

But I think the answer may be Dwight Schultz, who played Reg Barclay in several episodes of TNG and Voyager as well as the movie Star Trek First Contact. He was Amis in Babylon 5 and The Keeper in Stargate SG-1. :D
