    What's the deepest part of the ocean?
    What's the very deepest part of that very deep part?
    How deep is it (metres)?

    What was the first vessel to reach the bottom?
    Who was the most recent (and famous) person to reach the bottom, in the fourth ever descent?

    Its the Mariana Trench. Dunno the rest of the stuff, I'd guess James Cameron as the famous person to go down there though.

    The deepest part is Challenger Deep. It's about 10k down, but not sure on the exact depth.

    Still got the first manned (which I also believe was the first ever) vessel to reach the bottom of the Marianas Trench, plus the first person to get the depth within 500m.

    Wasn't the vessel called Challenger too?

    Depth guess - 7 miles

    Edit: Trieste sounds right

    Khanivor is correct.
    Other people with correct answers: Deckard (2) and Destria.

    First person out of that lot to post a question wins! *(the chance to post a question)


    It's approximately 10,900 metres which means Deckard got the closest but was still most of a kilometre out.

    They split into three. The original trilogy is excellent, and although the second and third never hit the heights of the first they 'fit' and offer a similar experience.

    The fourth book is a standalone oddity and feels very much like an Arthur C Clarke / Asimov 'hard' scifi story. Strangely dated, but for some their favourite of the series.

    The fifth and sixth are increasingly eccentric and written by an old man obsessing about sex. They're excellent and would stand up as great literature but they are inevitably in Dune's shadow.

    Don't read the continuation novels.
    Cheers Dude.

    I believe it was the disc jockey on K-DST.


    Anyway new day, new Q.

    There have only ever been 4 British Prime Ministers to have taken part in a duel. Name 3 of them.

    I bet The Duke of Wellington (Arthur Wellesley, if you insist) was one.

    I saw him do it in BlackAdder.

    Hmmmmm. The Duke of Wellington's duel was in 1829, and he was the last Pm or ex-PM to have a duel...

    Not Earl Grey.

    One was in 1780 and one was in 1809. Neither were Prime Minister at the time of their duel.

    Hum, I don't know. The only other one I can think of is Walpole but that'll be too far back I suspect.

    The other two were William Petty, 2nd Earl of Shelburne and George Canning. Didn't expect many people to get the former so only asked for three. To clarify:

    William Petty, 2nd Earl of Shelburne fought a duel with Colonel William Fullarton (1780)
    William Pitt the Younger fought a duel with George Tierney (1798)
    George Canning fought a duel with Lord Castlereagh (1809)
    The Duke of Wellington fought a duel with Lord Winchelsea (1829)

    Okay... The Tumen river is a major crossing point for refugee traffic. Which are the two main countries which have it on their border?

    For a bonus point, what third country also has it as a border?
