    Quiz this sunday!!!!

    Announcing the Physics Forums Quiz
    Sunday October 2th 2011
    20:00 GMT

    This coming Sunday will see another Physics Forums Quiz during Sunday's chat session. The quiz is just for fun and all are welcome! The quiz will take place in the dedicated quiz chat room. All interested members are invited to join and/or participate in the contest. Simply by joining the room, you are eligible to participate in the quiz. You may join and leave at any time.

    Rules
    1. The quiz is purely for fun, anyone taking it too seriously will be slapped with a fish!
    2. The FIRST member to answer the question correctly as determined by what is displayed on the quiz master's chat screen will receive 1 point. The quiz master will acknowledge the answer by saying "{NAME} correct".
    3. The quiz master's decision is final (even if ultimately wrong! :tongue2:).
    4. Members in the chat room are asked to not carry any conversation other than answering the question, or seeking clarification during each round. There will be a break between each round where members may seek clarification on any answer that was given during the previous round. However, points will not be reallocated.
    5. Members should use white font only, with no decorations (such as bold, italics or underlining).

    Format
    The will be two rounds:
    1. Science, Nature & Technology
    2. History

    GMT is also known as Zulu time.

    You use Sierra Time, which is Zulu Time minus 6 hours.

    Since you're in Daylight Savings Time, you have to add 1 hour. That means you're actually only 5 hours behind Zulu Time.

    I use Tango Time, which is Zulu minus 7 hours, but have to add one hour for Daylight Savings Time.

    It's obviously more fun where I live. Arizona is even more fun since they're in Tango Time 365.25 days a year!

    I know how to look it up, but PF is run on CST, so people need to learn CST. Pthhhbt.

    For example chat's "official hours are Sunday's from 10am to 4pm CST.

    I didn't know chat had official hours. Whats that in GMT? If I have to convert I'd rather do it from GMT. Otherwise I have to remember too many time zones. Throw in a few arbitrary daylight savings times, and its over for me.

    What ! I expected you to up the offensive. You never fail to amaze me, because you are NOT predictable. Who knows Peng, you may have the last laugh if I get eliminated first. Then you can do the nasty to me in this thread. I can take it, trust me.

    Rhody... :devil: :biggrin:
