For me, <20 minutes were enough to think over them. (Answers are already sent.) Well, I know that Google searching can need more time.

Well, I have never understood the long, long time interval to send the answers, but I always accepted it. Anyway, you have two weeks as always.

It occurs to me that I'm opening the forum while doing some boring work, but don't have even 10 minutes for replying... than at home I don't want to switch on the computer only because of that... so I start postponing again and again... So the long intervals are OK. But perhaps in case of a tie, the winner should be the pipsqueak who sent the replies earlier (and not the one with more 2nd places). That would enhance our motivation, and would not be unfair (quicker replies -> less time for googling).

+1, My top speed on the ground with any vehicles, EXCLUDING plane take-offs
Only 200 km/h, RailJet trains are limited to that value in Austria (by car: 161 km/h)

211 - Alan Rotoi
185 - Bonzai Joe
184 - Akoss Poo
139 - Duplode
280 - Usrin
305 - Zak McKracken

They were limited to that value before 09.12.2012, now the maximum speed is 230 km/h: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Railjet
Well, even that doesn't really help me.  :)

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.

IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!

I can proudly announce that I'm in Slovakia, hence this number will be 22 from tomorrow!

BÖFF!!! 8)

Yes, there are three.

Four days left now. This is a reminder, especially for the players who played previous round but hasn't had a tip for this round yet: Alan Rotoi, Bonzai Joe and Zak.
