Which letter is not found in any of the 50 states of the USA?
Q
J
X
Z

Lol, I think this should be: Which letter is not found in the name ...
If not, they might have a bit of trouble teaching kids geography let alone the alphabet

What was the loudest event to have happened on earth?
Volcano – Krakatoa
Tunguska Meteor
1 Ton TNT Bomb
Blue Whale

The earth have been hit by a lot of much larger meteors since it was formed, so the question should be: What is the loudest event to have been recorded on earth?
I find sources saying that it was Krakatoa and sources saying it was Tunguska. Haven't found any scientific sources though.

What is the mascot of the NFL team for Minnesota?
Pirates
Wolves
Vikings <- marked as correct
Bears

The mascot of Minnesota Vikings is a viking named Ragnar.

Edit: And a double:

The "Rat Pack" was comprised of each of the following except?
Wayne Newton *
Sammy Davis Jr.
Frank Sinatra
Dean Martin

Which one in this list was not in the 1950s or 1960's 'Rat Pack' of famous entertainers?
Frank Sinatra
James Dean *
Lauren Bacall
Dean Martin

And a "misspelling"
Which is heavier: 1000 dkg of cotton or 10 kg of iron?
1000 dkg of cotton
They are the same weight
It can not be said
10 kg of iron

There is no internationally recognised unit called dkg. The unit for 10g is dag, but dag is not videly used anywhere, so I guess it would be better to change it to 1000g and 1kg respectively.

Loudest q changed to: What was the loudest event recorded on earth?

Mascot q: Changed all answers to single form (Vikings is now Viking, Wolves is wolf)

Rat pack question is not a problem, since 2 of the same can be allowed. It also gives a different answer

Changed 1000 dkg to 10000 g

Letters of US state question: Because it is not something it would confuse anyone, i prefer it to stay as is. I dont want this to become a legal document, where every small detail has to be explained completely. Anyone can tell it means the names of the states without the question having to mention it

What do you have activated when the number of action points is restricted to 400 instead of 250?
Otherworldly Powers

No correct answer given! The answer is 'Acceleration' which can be gained without having Premium Membership, I think.

Advantages of premium membership:

much quicker hit point regeneration
if you lose in a duel, less soul-energy is taken from you than from mortal fellows
25% more action points is available for premium players
the number of action points is restricted to 400 instead of 250
I think that settles that one

Sandwich: He was as you say so lord is removed

TV: It means the horizontal text usually passing after a sitcom or the news end. But i am not sure if the question is ok or not as it is. Any sitations?

This is so disputable! Please remove it! It depends on where you start counting. It looks from the answer that queens have been included also.

Well either premium or the acceleration option will do that for you.


And an error:

What is a bustard?
A statue of a person from the waist up, usually with no arms
A man of unknown parentage
An Australian bird <- yes there is an australian bustard that lives in australia and other islands.
A North American carrion bird

But bustard is a family of birds found over most of the "old world"

I thought we were getting rid of 'negative' questions? This is very hard to find through googling and is very specialised.

From these 4 choices what can a man do standing up, a woman sitting down and a dog on three legs?
shake hands <---------- given as correct
swim
beg
disco

I hate this question. Firstly, a dog cannot shake hands as it has paws and not hands. Also, all three can beg in that position and can 'disco', despite that not being a verb (I assume it means dance). Tell me they can't and I'll show you wheelchair dancing!

So, if we have to accept dogs shaking hands, there are 3 possible correct answers.

What does Lucifer literally mean?
ruler of death
evil holder
demon
morning star

No it does not!

Lucifer LITERALLY means Light bearer or light carrier. Therefore none of these are correct.

Morning star = Oriens Astrum

If yesterday was today what is tomorrow?
the day after tomorrow
yesterday
tomorrow
today

This is still here? There are so many ways to interpret this question.

Assuming today is Monday, then yesterday is Sunday. From Sundays perspective, tomorrow (Tuesday) is the day after tomorrow BUT we are living today so our perspective is from today therefore IF yesterday is today (Meaning today becomes Sunday) then tomorrow must be Monday which means that tomorrow = today.

Nothing wrong with the question, but it doesn't it fall under the "second, third"-type of questions? As in "Who came second in the competition?" or "What is the forth most common cause of <blip>?".
