All right, so here's the final question of Round 1.  If anyone's still in the game after this one, Round 2 will be done quickly over the weekend, and then signups for Session 4 will open up.  As for right now, we know this question is worth $2000 if any of you three get it:

Quote

A: Golda Meir
B: Winston Churchill
C: Fidel Castro
D: Nikita Khrushchev

Hmm...I know Meir was Russian, so I can probably rule her out.  I don't think it's Castro or Khrushchev due to both their countries' rocky history with the U.S.  As such, I'll take a stab and say B...final answer.

Since Churchill's Engilsh, that makes his mother seem to be the most likely one to have been born in Brooklyn. I'll take a shot at it and say B, final.

It's funny, because I thought it was Golda Meir myself.  But TBK and TSM nailed it. :P So, that's $2000 to both of your banks, and since PPF jumped the question, all three of you have made it out of Round 1.  It's time to play Classic Millionaire!

Standings after 10 questions:
The Silver Monkey: $67,600 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
Purple Parrots Fan: $65,600 in bank; Ask the Audience remaining
The Bandit King: $64,600 in bank; Ask the Audience remaining
The Viper: $7500 total winnings
The Headless King: $1000 total winnings
PurpleParrot319: $1000 total winnings

So, only four questions left.  You know how things work, so let's get right into it. ;)

$100,000:

On a 2008 spacewalk, a U.S. astronaut dropped what $100,000 object, which floated away and later burned up in the atmosphere?

A: Solar panel
B: Space suit glove
C: Flashlight
D: Tool bag

I have seen this question so many times, it's not even funny. But then again, my memory isn't all that great, so I hope this choice is still right.

The answer is D, final answer.

I thought this was so funny, and I asked myself why someone in their right mind would pay $100,000 for...

D, a tool bag. Final answer.

Yeah, $100,000 for a tool bag is certainly excessive, but it is D, final.

Damn, tough one...

I hate to go along with the crowd, but I'll ask the audience, too.

All right, so nobody decided to answer that question.  Admittedly it was a really hard one, but the answer was A: 454 million.  So, at this point, we now have only one player left in the game:

Standings after 12 questions:
The Silver Monkey: $100,000 in bank; Ask the Audience remaining
Purple Parrots Fan: $100,000 total winnings
The Bandit King: $100,000 total winnings
The Viper: $7500 total winnings
The Headless King: $1000 total winnings
PurpleParrot319: $1000 total winnings


There's two questions to go, so let's take a look at the half-million-dollar question:


$500,000:
Quote
The longest-reigning monarch in world history ruled for over what nation for more than half a century?

A: Thailand
B: France
