I know how long a fortnight is, and I know how long a decade is, so...

The missing gap was that a fortnight is equal to fourteen days or two weeks, so the answer was in fact D: 260.  The question itself was worth $5000, and you've all earned that too.

That means you three are now nine questions away from the million, and I think it's starting to get interesting here.  I'm going to post the next question right after Monday's show.

Standings after 5 questions:
The Headless King: $8600 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
PurpleParrot319: $8600 in bank; one Jump the Question remaining
The Bandit King: $8100 in bank; Ask the Audience remaining
Purple Parrots Fan: $1000 total winnings
The Silver Monkey: $1000 total winnings

A: John Kerry
B: George H. W. Bush

I'm confused. H.W. is the only President on the list, but it's out of the FOUR most recent presidential elections, and I'm pretty sure he didn't win in the four most recent elections. Kerry lost, McCain lost, and Gore lost, but Gore's loss is controversial as he won the popular vote, but not the Electoral College vote.

Really, this is confusing. Can we have a different question please? I'm pretty sure that's why no one else has answered yet, although TBK's absence and THK not being here yet might be another reason why, I don't know. :lol:

I think I need to clarify something. I will take a guess on this one. I'm not skipping it.

My guess is B, H.W. I just can't go against the only President on that list. B is my final answer.

I'm almost positive it's B.

And PP319, you're forgetting that I kind of have a job now, so I won't be answering these until quite late. ;)

Yeah, that's kind of why I allow participants to answer any time before I post the next question. :P Real life can get in the way, but given a schedule, 24 hours or so should allow just about anyone a chance to log in and contemplate each question.

...But real life is also why the questions on Tuesdays and Thursdays come much later in the day. :lol: I'm supposed to be at a lecture for one of my hardest classes when the show runs those days, so I don't get a chance to watch the episode until I get back to my room and watch the tape several hours later.

I didn't even think about the question possibly being faulty, but it doesn't matter because everybody got it.  Which is also good because this question was worth $10,000 for each of you. :)

The Headless King: $18,600 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining

I knew TBK has a job now. I actually forgot THK had school. :lol:

I had a class today too, but it was short. Too bad it caused stress because of big time rain! :x

All right, so we've still got three remaining contestants and eight questions to go on the way to the million.  You have until 1 PM tomorrow to answer this question:

Quote
What term names a recent culinary trend exploring the chemistry and physics behind the preparation of a dish?

A: Molecular gastronomy
B: Geometric gastronomy
C: Elemental gastronomy
D: Laboratory gastronomy

I can eliminate B because Geometric doesn't really encompass chemistry and composition, just physics.  I can eliminate C because Elemental doesn't really include physics, more just composition.  Choice A seems like a good option, but then again heat is a good portion of the physics component and Molecular concepts are more focused on the structures.  D definitely seems to be the best choice partly because it's the most generic, but I do have my doubts.

I'll go for it.  D.  Final answer.

Petree dishes, right? D, laboratory gastronomy. It makes the most sense to me. D is my final answer.

Despite my scientific nature, I'm unsure on this one. I'd like to ask the audience...

All right, so TBK just locked in A as his final answer.  I know THK and PP319 both thought it was D.  And the answer was...





A: Molecular gastronomy.


That last question actually ended up being worth $25,000; which TBK gets to add to his bank.  I'm sorry, THK and PP319.  You both did a good job, though, and you do get $1000 as your final scores.

TBK is now the only one still playing, but it could still end up in a five-way tie.  Just play any following questions as you would on the real show and let's see how it turns out. :P

Standings after 7 questions:

The Bandit King: $43,100 in bank; Ask the Audience remaining
PurpleParrot319: $1000 total winnings
Purple Parrots Fan: $1000 total winnings
The Headless King: $1000 total winnings
The Silver Monkey: $1000 total winnings
