Question of the Day?
« on: August 31, 2011, 12:54:27 PM »
Just thought I'd try a little trivia thing with some of the questions on Millionaire if that's okay. :P I'm probably the only one who still watches and really likes the old show, but hey, just in case I'm not the only one who's interested in trivia like this, we have this thread.  Basically I'm going to post one question from each episode, and then reveal the answer with the next question on the following day (or Monday if the last one was a Friday, of course).  And no, no lifelines. :P


So, today's rerun saw David Hankins; a pre-med student at Harvard; win $100,000 by correctly attributing the quote "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent" to Eleanor Roosevelt.  He then walked away from a $250,000 question asking for the only national flag with different emblems on both sides (the answer was Paraguay), but an audience member was given the chance to win $1000 by answering this question, which would have been worth $500,000:

Quote

A: Treaty Room
B: Press Briefing Room
C: Diplomatic Reception Room
D: Map Room

Tough one. I took a tour of the White House when my family went to D.C., but that was a LONG time ago...

I'll take a stab at it though, and say...B.

I remember my Precalculus teacher talking to us about how since the room is oval shaped, the echoes resound at the foci.  Only problem is I can't remember whether it is was B or C.

I'm gonna say C.

Congrats to anybody who got that last one right... Which would be TRJ and THK, because the answer was the Diplomatic Reception Room.  Nice job, you guys!

Well, apparently Season 10 is going to start next Monday.  Considering making more of a tournament out of this somehow, but I'm not quite sure how it could be done (especially since usually these games involve the asker changing :P).  Could use some advice on that.

But for now, the first contestant today started off with this tough question, which was originally the eighth question in her set pre-randomization:

Quote
Thanks to a constitution ratified in 1949, what country has no national military force?

A: New Zealand
B: Costa Rica
C: Belgium
D: Thailand
