Hi,
The following question has a default into it:
"The theme for the British TV show "Jonathan Greek" is a variation on which classical piece of music?"

Must be:
"The theme for the British TV show "Jonathan Creek" is a variation on which classical piece of music?"

Regards,
Elvenwind


This question still needs amending to Jonathon Creek.

Lol, I just had this one, and was told my correct answer was wrong too!!!

This new one also needs addressing................Scientists have traced the start of AIDS to..............

Answer marked as correct is 1908.
And whilst a search brings up this fact on facebook world facts (!!!) amongst others.

further research (Type "Scientists have traced the start of AIDS to..." into search engine) yields this...........
"Michael Worobey and Beatrice Hahn help us search for a much earlier Patient Zero, by taking us to Africa, and turning back the clock on a series of virus mutations and pinpointing one fateful moment of cross-species spillover in a jungle in Cameroon. And virus hunter Nathan Wolfe takes us back even farther, to an intracellular instant that created a chimp Patient Zero hundreds of thousands of years ago."

Not my question, but according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_largest_empires the British Empire is the "largest" Empire.
The Mongol Empire is the largest contiguous Empire in World History I believe, while the British is the largest non-contiguous.

Who was the first Major League Baseball player to have his number retired by all teams?

Answer Lou Gehrig is not correct, he was the first to retire, but according to Wiki:

"Normally the individual clubs are responsible for retiring numbers. On April 15, 1997, Major League Baseball took the unusual move of retiring a number for all teams. On the 50th anniversary of Jackie Robinson's breaking the major league color barrier, his number 42 was retired throughout the majors"

The answer is changed to correct now.

Answer Lou Gehrig is not correct, he was the first to retire

„By all teams” is removed from the question, so it is correct now, I think.

Miasma: Your question is modified, too.

"Where is the Trinity University?"

The answer given as correct is Dublin. This is incorrect - the name is "Trinity College Dublin", part of the University of Dublin. It is never called Trinity University - that would be like talking about Kings University Cambridge. And I know because my father went there. I assumed it was a trick question. Correct it to "Where is Trinity College?"

Scram means to shut down a nuclear reactor. The answer given as correct is merely an urban legend. One site claims the etymology to be true but it has been debunked. Answers should not be ambiguously right.

The question asks what SCRAM stands for not what it involves
Also etymolology means its origins or source - again not necessarily what it stands for.

The source for the acronym is the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission amongst others.

Tom Welleck NRC Historian claims that only the published account of its origin is a matter of Urban Legend not the resultant, generally accepted, Acronym

How much kilobyte is one megabyte?
1024
1000
512
2048

A megabyte is (also) 1000 kB. When using "SI decimal prefixes", mega means 10^6 and kilo is 10^3. Moreover, there is a special term to refer to 1024 kB, called "mebibyte". Let me use some wikipedia quotes to support my argument:

Megabyte
Definition
The term "megabyte" is commonly used to mean either 1000^2 bytes or 1024^2 bytes.
By the end of 2007, standards and government authorities including IEC, IEEE, EU, and NIST proposed standards for binary prefixes and requiring the use of megabyte to strictly denote 1000^2 bytes and mebibyte to denote 1024^2 bytes.


Mebibyte
Definition
1 MiB = 220 bytes = 1024 kibibytes = 1048576bytes

The prefix mebi is a binary prefix derived from the words mega and binary, indicating its origin in the closeness in value to the SI prefix mega. One mebibyte (MiB) is 220 (i.e., 1024 x 1024) bytes, or 1048576bytes. One MiB differs from one megabyte (MB), which means 106 (i.e. 1000 x 1000 = 1000000bytes).


So, there you have it. The answer should be 1000.

if you could travel at the speed of light in km/ph how many times could you circle the earth in one second?
1 time
184 times
18 times
12 times

if should be If and km/ph should be km/h.
And then the answer is wrong. Speed of light is 300000 km/s and the circumference of the earth is 40075 km, so 300000/40075=7,5 times, not 12. Unless I did something wrong.

That's correct Sbart,

The circumference of the earth at the equator is 24,901.55 miles (40,075.16 kilometers).

But, if you measure the earth through the poles the circumference is a bit shorter - 24,859.82 miles (40,008 km). This the earth is a tad wider than it is tall, giving it a slight bulge at the equator. This shape is known as an ellipsoid or more properly, geoid (earth-like).

Cheers,
E.
