I arguably should have been aware of the half-gotcha in question 10... ::) Also...

+1. Minimum speed needed for driving a REAL Corvette ZR1 around a loop with diameter of 30 m.

CTG - 60
Duplode - 62

...I think we made the same mistake here  :D

2. Number of people living in countries with no sea coast.[/b]
475,818,737.

Akoss Poo - 600,000,000


3. Boiling point of water at the lowest sea level pressure ever recorded.
The lowest pressure was 870 hPa in a typhoon over the Pacific Ocean, 12 October 1979. At this pressure, water boils at 95.8°C.

4. Distance of the furthest object I've ever seen through a telescope (light years).
It is the galaxy M 81, being 12 million light years away.

Akoss Poo - 8,000,000

5. Yearly potato consumption per capita in the United Kingdom, 2005.
102 kg.

Akoss Poo - 13.48

7. Number of goals scored by the champion of the Armenian Premier League (football), 2013/14.
The champion was Banants, scoring only 38 goals in 28 games. (The runner-up Shirak scored 48. There are only 8 teams in the top league, playing 4 times with each other.)

8. Total weight of a Trabant 601 Limousine.
615 kg.

9. Number of matches in the longest undefeated streak in the history of North American professional sport leagues.
35, by Philadelphia Flyers (NHL) in 1979-80. Sorry, Mr. Poo! :)

CTG - 34
Akoss Poo & Chulk - 37 & 33

10. Density of hydrogen cyanide at room temperature (g/cm3).
0.687 g/cm3. (It's still liquid, boiling point is 26°C.)

Akoss Poo - 1.123

11. Number of nights I've ever spent in Slovakia.
Unfortunately I've never lived in the current territory of Slovakia, and many of my visits there were day trips. So sadly enough, this number is only 21.

13. Heel height of the shoes my wife wore for our wedding (cm).
4.0 cm.


I'm proud of having a right tips in fields of science which I like very much (population geography and astronomy) - by overtaking both Google Masters.

I'm less proud of somehow remembering a stronger dependence of boiling point decrease vs. pressure decrease... I also remembered a bit lower value (~800 hPa) of minimum ever recorded pressure in a typhoon.

I underestimated the potato consumption to a big extent... That's around 300 grams per a day. English are potato eaters, it seems... That's even higher than my consumption, and I LIKE potato very much. I thought I eat a lot of potato.

Armenian League: I don't like beugratós questions... (I thought there is a big difference between the strength of the teams, triggering high scoring games. It seems I wasn't the only one.)

What kinda limousine is that? Only 600 kgs?

Fúck you for your Philadelphia Cryers question! It couldn't have been worse after seeing CTG's answer, victory and my tip...

I wrote 1.123 kg/m3 for the HCN. I thought it is still a gas. Btw this was the only question for which I checked the answer after sending the tips in the message. Again, I don't like beugratós questions.

Well, I was right when I thought that you - like me - mostly made one day trips to Slovakia 'cos it's close. I sent the number of nights spent there by me, 6 (all of them in 1995, Kokava nad Rimavicou, when I learnt to ski). But you spent there much more. 21 is a nice number in a country where you make mostly one day trips.

LOL, that's not a picsacipö, especially not for a wedding!

Let me quote the answers sent to Usrin:

"10. Density of hydrogen cyanide at room temperature (g/cm3).
25°C-on folyékony az, remélem Poo beszopja. Legyen mondjuk 0.555 g/cm3."

It means something like "it's a liquid at 25°C, I hope Poo will suck in this question." ;D

Btw Wikipedia says

HCN: Boiling point   25.6 to 26.6 °C; 78.0 to 79.8 °F; 298.7 to 299.7 K

Room temperature

Scientific use
For scientific work, room temperature is taken to be about 20 to 26 degrees Celsius with an average of 23°C (about 73.4 degrees Fahrenheit (°F), 293 to 299 kelvins (K), or 528 to 537 degrees Rankine (°R)).[4] For numerical convenience, either 20 °C (68 °F) or 300 K (80 °F) is often used, without being specified as "room temperature". However, room temperature is not a defined scientific term, unlike Standard Temperature and Pressure (STP); admittedly, STP has several slightly different definitions.

So at taking the higher values of 'room temperature' into account, HCN can be considered as a gas at room temperature. So both the gas and the liquid densities should be accepted as a correct answer, I think.

That's why it is not a good idea to ask a beugratós kérdés with a scientifically undetermined term (e.g. "room temperature) in it.

Specify which Rio Grande you refer.

PS: +1 Mine was 185km/h in a Renault Megane in 1999. :D

Question 9: Do you mean "AT Spa Francorchamps"?
But we can't be quite sure.

Yes, the physical distance, in km. ( I should refresh my never existing English skills, 'cause it seems I can't express such an easy thing)

3, Mean monthly sunshine hours/year in Shanghai

Isn't this a bit overcomplicated? Am I right that it means "average yearly number of sunshine hours, divided by 12?"

Oh, monthly!!! CTG please divide my tip by 12 :)
