Finally...


1, How many 100 HUF coins has the same weight as a Bugatti Veyron? (!hint: bimetal coin, diameter ~24 mm, thickness ~2 mm, it contains iron, copper, zinc and nickel)

Bugatti Veyron is 1888 kg, while the 100 HUF coin weights with 8.0 g, so the correct answer: 236,000. To buy a "basic" Veyron, you would need about 15 times more coins... ;D

240,000 - Akoss Poo
250,000 - Chulk & Zak
123,000 - Usrin
45,000 - Bonzai Joe
2,500,000 - Duplode


2, Birth date of Shaquille O'Neal is 1972. 03. 06.

1972. 03. 06.- Chulk (Lakers fan...)

1963. 03. 18. - Akoss Poo


3, Population of Vietnam: 91,519,289 (according to the latest data from wikipedia)

100,000,000 - Chulk
108,500,000 - Usrin
34,500,000 - Bonzai Joe
30,000,000 - Duplode
25,000,000 - Akoss Poo & Zak (surprisingly bad tip from Poo)


4, Longest recorded arrow shot with a bow: 653 m (record holder is Hungarian)

800 - Duplode
380 - Chulk
980 - Zak
325 - Bonzai Joe
13300 - Usrin :o  :o  :o
16023 - Akoss Poo  :o  :o  :o  :o

Loopings: arrows don't fly at hypersonic speed! ;D


5, Distance of Antares (star) in light years: 550 ly (according to English wikipedia)

700 - Chulk
800 - Akoss Poo
200 - Duplode

0.522 - Usrin
0.12 - Bonzai Joe


9, Percentage of left corners on USC 2008/09 tracks (!hint: I hate right corners, but there were also some guest tracks)

Just as expected (and told earlier), the alibi rights... If we understand a 90 degree turn as a corner (so 180 degree turn is two), there were 113 left and 78 right corners in that season. That's 59.2 percent for the left.

67 - Chulk
71 - Duplode
74 - Bonzai Joe

10, Length difference between the largest Boeing 747 and Airbus A380 models (not only the value counts, but which one is longer)

Even if Airbus has a huge wingspan compared to the newest Jumbo, Boeing 747-8 is the longest passenger plane on Earth (although Airbus designers are planning to make a 14 m longer version in 10 years, beating even Antonov AN-225's length). According to the Boeing and Airbus specification sheets:

Boeing 747-8 -  length: 76.25 m, wingspan: 68.45 m, tail height: 19.40 m, empty weight: 214.5 tons
Airbus A380F -   length: 72.73 m, wingspan: 79.75 m, tail height: 24.45 m, empty weight: 252.2 tons

This question was not enough CTGish.  :) I thought that you asked it is because "DFM" is for something totally else, and it isn't an FM station...

I fucked it up, wrote the rate in the wrong direction... (1 USD=0.522 KWD --> would have been 1,916 correctly.) Btw, it wouldn't have helped me in the game.

Explanation of the 12th question for those who hate chemistry and physics: saturated vapor pressure means the maximal partial pressure of a certain material at the said temperature. If you decrease the pressure of the ambient air to that value, your material will boil. So: the saturated vapor pressure of water is 101 kPa at 100°C.

That's nearly 1000 atmospheres?
But we can't be quite sure.

Nope. 1 atmosphere is about 101 kPa.

In this case, we would need a pressure of 1000 atmospheres to keep the water liquid up to 100°C. (Meaning that it would probably boil below 10°C on 1 atmosphere.)
