Ninja Science Trivia Week with Prizes!

  1. Sep 18, 2015 #1
    Starting Monday Sept 21st and going to Sept 28th, PF will be hosting a "Ninja Science Trivia Week"!

    Each day I'll be posting a science trivia question in PF Chat. The time will be completely random and so will the science topic. I will however post the 2 hour window of when it will be posted to give members a better idea. Once the question is posted I'll announce that I've posted it in this thread with a link to Chat. The first member to answer the question will receive an awesome PF T-Shirt!

    The trivia question could be posted at any time. Maybe 3am, maybe 2pm. The point is, next week you want to be on PF as much as possible and alert to see when the question is posted!

    * Outside US members can choose from gift card or Gold Membership
    * Members can win only once

    I've decided I will reveal a 2 hour window when the trivia question could be posted. That way members have a better idea of when to be logged in and checking.

    Non gold members can't enter chat on weekdays so they can't participate right ?

    My guess was Facciamara's Mazzaroni cheese (Jackie Gleason fictitious cheese name).
