I hate to go along with the crowd, but I'm gonna jump this question as well. It really can be any one of them, and I just can't narrow it down.

Someone's gotta man up here. :P

I'll do it. I'm guessing A.) sleep. That is my final answer, and if it's wrong, then oh well. I tried. ;)

Well, this was a little later than I'd intended. :lol: But anywho, the name of the book was "Go the Fuck to Sleep." Great guess, PP319; that earned you another $500 for your bank, putting you in the lead.

Standings after 4 questions:
PurpleParrot319: $17,600 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining
Purple Parrots Fan: $17,100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
The Bandit King: $17,100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
The Headless King: $17,100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
The Silver Monkey: $17,100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
JTH1: $17,100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining

Which brings us ten questions away from the million, with this next one being the Double Money question.  It could be worth $2000, $6000, $10K, $14K, $20K or even a whopping $50K:

Fittingly, the name of the car company Volvo translates from Latin as what?

A: I fly
B: I roll
C: I jump
D: I slide

Gotta be B, since cars don't fly or jump, and I'm pretty sure it'd be a bad thing if they slide.  :lol:

Plus the stem "volve" is in some other words, namely "revolve", which means to go around.

B. Final answer.

Holy crap, it was Sleep? :shock:

And damn, it was only worth $500. :lol:

As for this next question, I think it has to be B.) I roll. That will be my final answer.

Just so you understand, the writer DID say it was a "children's book for adults," and apparently it was written in such a style to match that description.  Not really for kids, but sort of to tell other adults "Believe me, I know how hard parenting can be at times" with a bit of a laugh. :P

Anyway, back to this question.  The answer was in fact B, and the question itself was worth $7000.  So, that's getting doubled to $14K and added to everyone's total:

Standings after 5 questions:
PurpleParrot319: $31,600 in bank; Ask the Audience and two Jump the Question remaining
Purple Parrots Fan: $31,100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
The Bandit King: $31,100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
The Headless King: $31,100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
The Silver Monkey (or Mr. Sardo now, apparently :lol:): $31,100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
JTH1: $31,100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining

At this point, you can all take a deep breath and relax.  You've all made it halfway through Round 1, and question #6 is coming Monday. ;)

All right, it's a brand new week and that means it's time for a Monday question.  You've all made it halfway through Round 1 with sizable banks, and you get to keep their entire contents, rather than half if you decide to walk, if you make it through the next five questions to reach Round 2.  Here's Question #6:

Quote
In a 2011 decision about the sale of violent video games to minors, the U.S. Supreme Court cited the gore in which of the following?

A: Aesop's fables
B: Mother Goose nursery rhymes
C: Grimm's fairy tales
D: Dr. Seuss books

Let's see.  I don't recall any violence or gore in B or D.  A had some violence, but C was infamous for having gore in "children's stories".

C definitely makes the most sense, so I'll go with it.  C, final answer.

I'm ruling out B and D. It could be A, but I'm fairly confident that it's C.

C is my final answer.
