    I'll bet it'll be difficult. But I'm going to try a hand in this.

    I can't type fast, so I can't compete with the googlers, but the contests are fun to just watch.

    Trivia!

    ps. Someone pm Jonathan Scott that there's a string quartet scheduled at the McDonalds down the street in about 45 minutes, and Big Macs & Fries are half off. :tongue:

    These were the questions:

    Score:

    Code (Text):

    matterwave 4 + 5i
    Evo 9 + 4i
    OmCheeto 2
    DavidSnider 5 + (8+pi)i
    reenmachine 5 + e^(-pi/2) + 7i
    montadhar 5 + 5i
     
    Furthest away from the origin wins, so that would be David! Congratulations DavidSnider!

    Did all the point values have equal weight and constructive phases so that we don't cancel out a previous question's points with future question points?

    We were at a concert by the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra (in which my daughter plays), so no danger there!

    No, some points cancelled out other points. That was the fun of it :tongue:

    So you expected me to do math in my head to figure out which questions I should answer and which I shouldn't...while I was trying to also think of the answers of the trivia!? Too hard...T_T
