  1. Jun 30, 2017 #1
    Trivia will be held in our chat room Thursday July 6th at 8PM CST! Trivia will be general topics. Google is allowed but speed is everything. Top 3 members will receive the coffee table book "What's It Like in Space?" or a $10 Amazon gift card if outside the USA. Reminders will be posted throughout next week. A link to chat will be posted here along with it being added to the top navbar and an alert will be sent out.

    Yeah, Greg. You haven't told us where it will be located at. It's not located at Evo's house again is it? I hate having to cross the moat.

    I know exactly what you mean. Especially her Romanian Longhorn makes me shiver.

    Hey Greg can you just explain me about the trivia in a nutshell ????
     
  16. Jul 5, 2017 #15
    I ask questions, if you answer correctly, you get a point :)
     
  17. Jul 5, 2017 #16
    But I bet that it won't be as simple as you said.............
     
  18. Jul 5, 2017 #17
    Sorry I don't know what you are saying.

    This can't frighten me. Mathematicians call a group with
    ##808.017.424.794.512.875.886.459.904.961.710.757.005.754.368.000.000.000##
    elements simple. And by the way, simple is somehow the opposite of solvable :biggrin:

    ps. I may or may not show up. Current plans are that I shall be in the burbs of Integraland when the game starts.

    This is like that question how many Americans live abroad? Answer: 99,999,999,999

    and the followup question: Name them.

    I'll start somewhere in the middle: John, John, John, John, John, John, John, John, John, John, John, John, John, John, John, John, John, John, ...

    The equivalent task would probably be: List the subgroups.

    Edit: @mfb would certainly answer: "Let me start with the normal subgroups ..."

    OK, since I also don't have a clue as to what the "Trivia" that you refer to actually is, other than by definition, I will be the one with the detail questions.
    How do you access it online, web address, thread or what?
    What is the playing format?
    What are the rules of the game?

    Some of your answers are in the first post of the thread. Don't over think it. I ask questions, first to answer gets the point.
