    Same rules. One answer per customer. Try to be honest and supply your answer without simply looking it up somewhere. Rely on your own knowledge.

    2) Who was the mother of the god Horus?

    3) "Who the hell is Urban Müller?"

    4) Who is Ace Rimmer?

    5) Who wrote the famous essay in 1993 titled The Singularity?

    6) Which famous religious leader (deceased, or not, depending on how you look at it) was born in Lumbini, Nepal?

    7) Heinrich Kramer and James Sprenger wrote which infamous book?

    8) "Bottom" is a quark or a lepton?

    9) Which country shares borders with all of: Russian Federation, Poland, Ukraine, Latvia, and Lithuania?

    6) (Gautama) Buddha

    Kramer&Sprenger : I don't remember the name of this book - it's Latin, I think, but I know which subject it discusses. I read about it in one of Poe's stories...

    Well done. Especially on the Belarus. I wouldn't expect many people outside of mainland Europe to get that one without looking it up.

    I was going to say that that question rang a "Bell", but I wasn't certain, so I shut up.

    Iron Age should have began first in China IIRC.

    Bottom is a quark.

    9) Which country shares borders with all of: Russian Federation, Poland, Ukraine, Latvia, and Lithuania?

    Belarus

    Gosh darnit. On further review, I found out that The Bob answered before I did! I am yet to get one of these first!

    I hope you feel good The Bob, I hope you feel good.... :mad:

    Cheers. Athough I dislike Geography I do like to know the capitals and location of the countries around the world. As the UK is a part of Europe it is my best. :smile:

    Well I do feel good because I felt the same as you. I thought someone would have answered it before me but they didn't so I thought I would get my first answer right.

    Sorry Paden Roder. :redface: :biggrin: Friends??? *The Bob offers his hand to shake*

    This is my second shot.

    Q7) I believe this a book about "witches" and/or the trials. If I'm right, it has some Latin name that I don't recall. There's a reference to it in one of Poe's stories. Since you (Adam) now own the entire collection of Poe's works, you will/have come across it somewhere there.

    Like fudge. I've barely started on the Poe stuff.
