    1/6 Khani, although it would've been 2/6 if you'd linked one of those to a different number

    I only know Terminator X, and that's because he's a lyric in Bring The Noise.

    Or maybe it's Bring Tha Noize. I don't know. My knowledge of rap begins and ends with Hammer.

    AND LO. HE RETURNED TO CLAIM HIS RIGHT TO ASK A QUESTION.

    How many elements are liquid at room temperature and what are they? There aren't as many as you think...

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Depends on how you're defining room temperature. There's a handful that are borderline.

    Mercury, Bromine, Iodine

    I presume he means STP, which is 1 atm and 20C if I recall correctly.
  • Deleted user 26 July 2013 16:32:29
    I think iodine's a solid at room temperature, it's just soluble. But aside from mercury I can't actually think of any others. Probably some random metal that no-one would think of.

    It's a long time since I went into a chemistry lab and considered the periodic table...

    Yeah that goes to you Alastair. Only mercury and bromine (I've been reading xkcd).

    I also love the fact that tungsten has the highest melting point of any element and we know very little about it in a liquid state because it's really hard to find something to melt it in without that something melting itself.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I might have asked this before but, Avogadro's Number - give a rough definition and a rough value.

    (For the pedants, I will accept a definition of Avogadro's Constant as well.)

    Two and a half.

    It's 6 times 10 to the power of 23 but..... What do you mean by definition?

    It's the number of molecules so that the mass is equal to the atomic weight. It's a mole.
    I thought it was 1.6x10 to the something, but it's been a hell of a long time since I did Chemistry.

    edit - or do I mean the weight is equal to the atomic mass?

    If atomic mass of a given substance is n, then you need an Avogadro's Number of molecules of it in order to have n grams of the substance, is what I mean. That n grams of the substance is a mole of the substance (I think).

    Is it 6x10 to the 23 then? I was sure it was 1.6 - is that the speed of light? :)

    Mayor of Bazoomas and Pres. have a tie.
    I have finished executing my regression testing so I'm going home.

    You can have a civic title-off to decide who goes next.

    The "classic" film Night of the Lepus, which Star Trek actor was in it and what was it about?

    I promise the personally planned conception of a dwarf hamster of your own choice of species and colour to every EGer who votes for me. Also, President Weasel has sex with lobsters, and is known to grease clams up with coconut butter and release them into the sea. (All is fair in the campaign for office my friend.)

    Edit: Jesus you're ruthless. I have much to learn about politics, oh wease one.

    Possession is nine tenths of the quiz thread, Mayor. However, since it's the weekend, why don't we have two questions at the same time?

    That's not the one Kirk did that was entirely in Esperanto, was it?

    How sporting. Ok, keeping on topic, what is the Lepus Timidus Hibernicus and where can it be found?

    Lepus- hare
    Hibernicus- Ireland/Irish.

    Latin. Useful in random internet quizzes.

    So what links a parliament, an unkindness and a murder?

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    Was it Custer with the lead pipe in the bathroom?

    so so close, but 100% wrong.

    Crows and ravens. Not sure what an unkindness is a collection of.

    Corvids, baby.

    It's an unkindness of ravens, they're all corvids, I believe they're all in the crow family within the corvids which would make Trowel right.

    Given Immaterial's answer is a fairly majkor clue, anyone want to take a guess at what Night of the Lepus was about?

    Ah, I thought it was a parliament of ravens for some reason.
