Answers wait for no man

Three Men and a BabyAfter a day’s delay, here are the answers to the questions posed in Saturday’s post: Time waits for no man.  Before I get to that, I’d like to tell you about two questions we managed to get right on the night.

Firstly, one I was quite proud of. “What was the name of the baby in the film ‘Three men and a baby‘?” From some deep, deep hidden memory of watching the film in school (presumably in religion class) I plucked an answer.

“How sure are you?” my team-mates asked.

“Not at all… but it’s not as if we have anything else.”  Well, I was right as it turned out!*

From the sublime to the ridiculous, the other noteworthy question is possibly the easiest I’ve ever heard: “A new terminal was opened in Dublin Airport recently. By what name is it known?”

This one nearly stumped us, as we spent about five minutes over-thinking it. Was there a trick to it? Had the terminal been named in honour of someone? How had we missed it, if so? Surely this question couldn’t be as simple as it appeared?

Well, it turned out to be as simple as it appeared.**

Here are the answers to the others:

  1. Name the year: Foot and mouth is discovered in Ireland, the GAA votes to abolish its controversial rule #21, Ireland rejects the Nice Treaty referendum. A> 2001
  2. Which of the world’s oceans is the smallest? A> Arctic
  3. How many TDs are there in the Dáil? A> 166
  4. What was the name of the Chilean mine in which the 33 miners were trapped in 2010? A> San José

Picture round:

  1. Matthew Elderfield
  2. Henry Shefflin
  3. Gráinne Seoige
  4. Angela Merkel
  5. Gráinne Murphy
  6. James Horan
  7. Mick Lally
  8. Bill Cullen
  9. Kylie Minogue
  10. Olli Rehn

Feel free to click on the links of the people in the picture round – to see what they actually look like. 🙂

Anyway, that’s all for today folks.
