  1. Here comes yesterday’s question:

    Around BC 47, Julius Caesar is said to have written to his senate the phrase “Veni, vidi, vici” after he achieved a quick victory against who of the following?

    A. Amantius XVI

    B. Xerxes I

    C. Appian

    D. Pharnaces II

    This was…

    Spoiler

     

    D. The phrase translates to “I came, I saw, I conquered.”

     

    Here comes today’s question:

    What was World War II referred to by Ireland?

    A. The Big One

    B. The Troubles

    C. The Greater War

    D. The Emergency

    1. TomDaBombMLP

      TomDaBombMLP

      As an Irish person, I have to know this.

      It’s D.

    2. Totally Nyx

      Totally Nyx

      I have to say C. I doubt it's right, but I'm hoping because I can see someone with a sense of humor calling it that.

      I have no idea, so by the power of the dice roll, the answer must be C! :proud:

    2. Samurai Equine

      Samurai Equine

      Gonna say D on this.

  3. Here comes friday’s question:

    What is the current prevailing hypothesis for the ultimate fate of the universe?

    A. Accelerating Universe

    B. Heat Death

    C. Big Crunch

    D. Big Bounce

    This was…

    Spoiler

    B. The Big Crunch/Bounce theories were popular until the early 2000’s, when it became apparent that the universe’s expansion is not slowing down but instead getting faster. Accelerating Universe suggests it would gradually tear itself apart and is no longer viewed with confidence, and Heat Death suggests that the universe will eventually become too cold to sustain any life. This theory is also known as the Big Chill or the Big Freeze.

    This week’s winner is…

      @Astral Soul glad to hear it! Congratulations, and you’re welcome anytime 

  4. Here comes yesterday’s question:

    The maximum mass limit of a white dwarf star was determined by which of the following people?

    A. Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar 

    B. Giovanni Cassini

    C. Edwin Hubble

    D. Clyde Tombaugh

    This was…

    A.  The limit is approximately 1.44 solar masses. Any more than that and the object will continue to collapse.

      Is it still C? :ooh:

    3. Astral Soul

      Astral Soul

      Well 'prevailing' is here the keyword cause nobody knows for sure.

      But the things we do know all hinting to a heat death of the universe:

      So it's B

    4. Samurai Equine

      Samurai Equine

      I'm guessing C. Although, I've heard B many times, I'll stick with C.

  5. Here comes yesterday’s question:

    In 1994, the first ever recorded extraterrestrial collision occurred between Jupiter and which of the following objects?

    A. 1950 DA

    B. Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9

    C. Cassini

    D. Europa

    This was…

    Spoiler

    B. The comet was ripped into pieces by Jupiter and impacted with the giant over the course of a few days. Had this occurred on Earth, we would have all been killed.

    Here comes today’s question:

    The maximum mass limit of a white dwarf star was determined by who of the following?

    A. Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar 

    B. Giovanni Cassini

    C. Edwin Hubble

    D. Clyde Tombaugh

    1. Astral Soul

      Astral Soul

      This is sooooo my week :>

      It's A :)

      For a little context: This is a theoretical maximum for the mass of white dwarfs. Has a white dwarf a mass larger than this limit then it will turn into a neutron star. I even know the value of it: 1.44 times the mass of  our sun - at least as long as it doesn't have any active nuclear fusion processes anymore which would counter act the gravitational forces and increase this maximum.

      let's make a random fact for @Samurai Equine from this:

      Our sun will end as a white dwarf 

    2. Samurai Equine

      Samurai Equine

      I assume it's A.

      @Astral Soul

      Stop predicting where I'll post! :BornAgainBrony: It makes me feel appreciated!

      Sry, when I went too far with this xD

      But I like to make people feel appreciated :>

  6. Here comes yesterday’s question:

    The Voyager probes have been in service for just shy of 45 years now. How far away is Voyager 1?

    A. 10.86 light minutes 

    B. 45.3 light years

    C. .0050 parsecs

    D. 21.5 light hours

    This was…

    Spoiler

    D. If a light year is the distance that light can travel in one year, in 45 years, Voyager 1 hasn’t even managed to travel one light day yet. It will take over 315 years to travel one light week, 1300+ to travel a light month, and around 17,720 years to travel one light year. 

    Here comes today’s question:

    In 1994, the first ever recorded extraterrestrial collision occurred between Jupiter and which of the following objects?

      Astral Soul

      It's B

      and I know this by hard. This is a very famous one aaaand  in 94 I tried together with my dad and a telescope to see this as it happened. This actually a really wholesome memory for me. Thanks for reminding me <3

      Spoiler

       

      Additionally the other three options can be discounted:

      A. 1950 DA is  one of the risk–listed asteroid which could be potentially collide with earth .. as I recall in a couple of hundread years .. so not sure bout this time frame

      C. Cassini (Huygens) was launched in 97. So no chance it could collide in 94. I know nothing else regarding this topic which bears that name.

      D. Europa (one of the four Galilean moons orbiting Jupiter). Can be discounted rather easily as well since I (and we all) would know if they had collided in 94 xD

      Samurai Equine

      If I didn't know better, I'd say D just so every letter was guessed. But I know it's B. :adorkable:

  7. Here comes yesterday’s question:

    Of the listed stars, which of the following has the longest life expectancy?

    A. The Sun

    B. Betelgeuse

    C. Proxima Centauri

    D. R136a1

    This was…

    Spoiler

    C. The Sun has about 10-11 billion years total, Betelgeuse has about 10 million years and is due to explode very soon (in astronomical terms), R136a1 has around 3 million years, but as a red dwarf star, Proxima Centauri is expected to live for hundreds of billions to trillions of years.

    Here comes today’s question:

    The Voyager probes have been in service for just shy of 45 years now. How far away is Voyager 1?

    A. 10.86 light minutes

  16. I like a villain who isn’t evil for the sake of being evil. I don’t like one dimensional mustache twirlers. I want to see what their reasoning is, and it doesn’t always have to be huge deep reasons. Humans kill for 3 main reasons: Money, Sex, Revenge, or some combination. Sometimes the simplest reasons in a villain’s behavior are the most effective.

    Health Exercise Frequently?

    No, but I am in shape.
  21. It comes and goes. Sometimes I am and sometimes not.
  22. I have 3. the first one was a gash on my forehead because I slipped in the kitchen and cut my head on a refrigerator door hinge the second is a gash on my leg I got at the beach. There was a random stack of cinder blocks in the water. Probably should have gotten stitches for that one the third is a gash in my hand because I stabbed myself with a knife opening a box because I’m an idiot.
  23. Brownies, 100%. But no shame to twinkies, those are good too.
  24. Any. I like it when my food bites back.
  25. John Prine dying made me cry back in 2020, but most celebrities mean nothing to me.
