True, I didn't think about that. Last answer sent in mail, though.

7, Top speed of the fastest helicopter ever (km/h) - 400.87 km/h

8, Altitude difference between the highest points of Germany and Brasil - only 32 m! (BRA - 2994, GER - 2962)

No, in Transport Tycoon Deluxe, the Guru X2 Helicopter top speed is 494 km/h.  ;D

First I thought about tipping 0 m altitude difference, I could not decide whether the Brazilian Highlands' highest point or the Zugspitze is higher (I thought that must be close)... I knew that the latter's elevation is 2962 m above sea level, but I had no exact info about the other. I decided to have a highest tip which can be (could have been enough)... (Btw I checked it, the highest point of Brazil is not in the Brazilian Highlands...)

I'm just being lucky to know 2/3 per round and guess some others, for example

Round 3

2, When was Hewlett-Packard company founded? (year) - 1939
1941 - Chulk
1935 - Bonzai Joe
1946 - Zak McKracken
1927 - Akoss Poo
1905 - Duplode
1992 - Super Brian

I just knew it was bewtween WWI and WWII


3, Density of diamond at room temperature (g/cm3) - 3.52 g/cm3

3.3 - Zak McKracken (lucky anti-chemist :D)
3 - Chulk
4.1 - Akoss Poo
2.8 - Duplode
12.5 - Super Brian
18.82 - Bonzai Joe
Bet on 3 just because it was question 3, would have been a very locuky guess

6, The most goal in a single match in the history of the Spanish La Liga (football) - Athletic Bilbao - Racing de Santander 9-5 (1933); so 14 goals
14 - Akoss Poo (who else)
13 - Chulk and Duplode
12 - Bonzai Joe
23 - Zak McKracken
109 - Super Brian

I bet on that Athletic - Barcelona 12-1, as I think you did too.

7, Top speed of the fastest helicopter ever (km/h) - 400.87 km/h
390 - Chulk
450 - Duplode
290 - Super Brian
720 - Zak McKracken
839 - Akoss Poo
925 - Bonzai Joe

I took a guess a bit below 400 Km/h because I remembered reading in my brothers notes o talking to him (either one or both) about helicopters being limited to 400 Km/h because if they went faster, they went into stall. (He's an aeronautics engineer)

8, Altitude difference between the highest points of Germany and Brasil - only 32 m! (BRA - 2994, GER - 2962)
400 - Chulk
700 - Akoss Poo
1100 - Bonzai Joe and Duplode
2400 - Super Brian
2510 - Zak McKracken

Just thought lower Andes and lower Alpes would be close, just not THAT close!


9, Racing length of Vuelta in 1935 (km) - 3411 km
3500 - Chulk
3900 - Super Brian
2200 - Zak McKracken
5123 - Akoss Poo
1540 - Bonzai Joe
1000 - Duplode

Lucky guess

10, Power (in HP units) of the strongest street version Subaru Impreza (2.5 l, turbo-charged) - 304 hp
350 - Chulk
355 - Bonzai Joe and Zak McKracken (damned tight!)
384 - Akoss Poo
210 - Duplode
698 - Super Brian

I had a llittle idea from a friend in Subaru club here in Argentina that talks about cars every stallin second, but I thougt it has more HP than I guessed...

+1, The last 4 digits of my workplace phone number (try to cheat, muhahaha) - 5093
5114 - Chulk
5499 - Akoss Poo
6733 - Bonzai Joe
2911 - Super Brian
2744 - Zak McKracken
2534 - Duplode
I chose 5 for the first digit as a middle number, then just randomly chose the next 3 with a bar code from a chocolate I had at hand.

I'll think of 13 questions, but I will take a while so I'll take round 5.

Bad question. Several months in the history had no full moon (moon period: 29.5 days, February is shorter, so it happens in every 30-50 years or so)

Question 11 is also not clear. (Does the area include sea surface, or it means only land area?)
