My guesses :

6) According to the song, Gamera was a friend to all { ... } ? Geeks ?

9) Which Australian city is associated with Batman? Gotham ?

10) In the film Predator, which actor said "I ain't got time to bleed"? Damned if this isn't Jesse Ventura, in the early scene where the other dude lobs a grenade over the rock (behind which are baddies) that a bleeding Jesse is standing under.
Other dude : Dude ! You're bleeding ! (I paraphrase)
Jesse : I ain't got time to bleed.
Other dude : Okay, but have you got time to duck ?

<Don't look at me like that ! Who hasn't watched Predator a gazillion times ?


11) A kangaroo's testicles can retract into the abdominal cavity. When and why does this occur? The kangaroo does this when it senses a kick-in-the-b@!!$ coming its way :biggrin:

The Admiral Graf Spee.

2) The tallest type of grass is what?
JSCD: No. 2 has really bamboozled me.
Boulderhead: This one is easy for someone such as myself; bamboo.

3) The L1A1 is a variant of which rifle?
FN-FAL.

4) What are the monotremes?
JCSD: 4) The monotremes are one of the three main divisons of mammals (the others being the marsupials and the placental mammals), distinguished from the other types by the fact they lay eggs! IIRC there are only two species of montremes duck-billed platypuses and another one whose name I cannot remeber (enchideas perhaps???). Platypus and two ant-eaters. http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/mammal/monotreme.html

5) What was the largest tank ever built?
RayB: biggest tank -german MAUS 3/4 built anyway but ww2 end befor compleation.

6) According to the song, Gamera was a friend to all { ... } ?
Children. Yes, I mean the giant jet-powered turtle.

7) The word "modem" comes from two other words. What are they?
Evo: #7 modem - modulate/demodulate.

8) Who created the character Sherlock Holmes?
Chroot: 8) I have the feeling this is a trick question, but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote the Sherlock Holmes books. Hopefully that means he also invented the character. Nah, no trick this time.

9) Which Australian city is associated with Batman?
Melbourne. http://home.vicnet.net.au/~pioneers/pppg5n.htm [Broken]

10) In the film Predator, which actor said "I ain't got time to bleed"?
Gokul: 10) In the film Predator, which actor said "I ain't got time to bleed"? Damned if this isn't Jesse Ventura.

11) A kangaroo's testicles can retract into the abdominal cavity. When and why does this occur?
Gokul: 11) A kangaroo's testicles can retract into the abdominal cavity. When and why does this occur? The kangaroo does this when it senses a kick-in-the-b@!!$ coming its way. They retract into the cavity because kangaroos rip each other's balls off in fights. A particularly cruel way to ensure breeding rights.

12) Which comet's arrival close to Earth prompted a Beverly Hills cult to put purple handkerchiefs over their heads and commit suicide?
Gokul: 12) Hale-Bopp. Just wear black pyjamas, white sports shoes, and a purple handkerchief over your head, and you too can catch a ride on the next passing alien spacecraft!
