One hour and five minutes left. Though one of the answers (the pizza) will be known only tomorrow. So if somebody wants, I can postpone the deadline until then (until the pizza weight measurement tomorrow lunchtime).

Only 4 r@cers sent tips to me, the results are the following:

Duplode 87
Usrin 126
Zak 133

3. Altitude of the Chimborazo, m.
6268

Duplode 6214 -  living in South America was an advantage this time

192 - around 100-200 cups of coffee

Zak 16
Duplode 18

7. Number of decimal digits of the largest known prime number.
17425170 (2^57885161?1, discovered in 2013. All of you underestimated this number, but I guess I would have said an even lower number...)

Zak 131200
Usrin 2748

8. Difference between the shortest and the longest stages of the 1993 Tour de France, km.

Duplode 51.5
Zak 51
Usrin 43.8

10. Number of unopened toothpaste tubes at my home (as of 29th September, 2014)

Duplode 6 (not a good tip, but still worth for one point)
Usrin 4
CTG and Zak 3

11. Length of the night (hours:minutes) in the capital of Greenland on the 22nd December, 2014.
19h 53min (the capital is Godthaab/Nuuk, coordinates: 51° 45' W 64° 10' N, so no polar nights, but a long one; sunrise: 10:22, sunset: 14:29, length of day: 4h 7 min)

36.048

Usrin 35.1
Zak 37 (almost beat the geologist)
CTG 22.41
Duplode 68 (a sandstone rock sample is not a sponge)

+1. All time highest number of consecutive farts emitted by my ass.
20, two years ago, in the staircase of my grandma, my girlfriend was the victim

Duplode 14
Zak 13
CTG 40 (I wonder about your record... on the basis of your tip your one must be a much higher value)
Usrin 52 (I wonder about your record... on the basis of your tip your one must be a much higher value)

Final results:

1. Usrin 6 - he can ask the next set of questions
2. Cax The Googlemaster 5
3. Duplode 3
4. Zak 0

Round 24
Deadline: 12th March 2015, midnight

1, The scientifically documented time record of staying awake without using stimulants

2, If you take the 12-12 tracks of ZakStunts 2014 and USC 2014, how much is the difference between the number of water covered tiles used in each competitions? The relation also counts, so if you think USC tracks had more "wet" tiles, say a negative number.

3, Depth of the deepest European uranium mine

4, Yearly inflation rate in Guatemala (in 2012)

5, Weight of Adidas Brazuca ball, used at World Cup 2014

6, Birth date of the inventor of velocipede

7, Number of Russian cars I will see today while I'm going to the canteen (!hint: 400-450 meters of walking, next to a four-lane road with severe traffic)

8, How many 5th places were taken by German pipsqueaks in ZakStunts during Viktor Orbán's "reign"?

9, Boiling point of ethanol in the depths of Hellas Planitia (deep crater on planet Mars)

10, Area covered by my workplace entry card (cm2)

11, How many days passed between the release dates of Stunts 1.0 and The Need for Speed (PC version)?

12, Number of European patent applications from Argentina in 2013 (!hint: the sum of European patent applications in 2013 was 265,690)

13, Overall number of goals scored in domestic leagues by Villareal, Schalke 04, Feyenoord, Newcastle United and Györi ETO FC in the next round after estimation game's deadline

+1, Total weight of air in our office at the moment (!hint: considering a bad air quality, it will be calculated with 79% nitrogen, 19% oxygen, 1% argon and 1% water vapor)
To avoid Akoss Poo's reclamations: temperature is registered, air pressure data will be taken from met.hu.

Damn, I ran into this forum in the morning, and already prepared 12 questions... OK, they'll be used after I win this round. :) Btw, I hope the pipsqueaks are more interested in the game after such a long break.

Don't forget that the pressure data on met.hu are reduced to sea level. :P Use the barometric formula to calculate it for the altitude of your office: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barometric_formula

Don't worry, the volume of tables, books and other things in the office cause even more trouble... :D
