Trivia Challenge

Fun With Numbers

I’d like to congratulate last month’s Trivia Challenge winners: Kevin Law from Indiana and Mark Wright from North Carolina. Your ATPM T-shirts are on the way! This month’s prize of a dynamite ATPM T-shirt goes to the first two correct entries I receive at Individual readers are eligible to win only once every twelve months.

The Rules

Each question has only one correct answer. The answers are stored in a hermetically sealed envelope guarded by a Standard Poodle named “Jane” who lives in our house.

This Month’s CD Recommendation

In The Flesh—Live” by Roger Waters. A two CD set documenting Roger Waters’s 1999-2000 live tour, this marvelous compilation includes classics from Pink Floyd along with gems from Roger’s solo works. With a stellar band backing him up, Roger is in fine form as they rip through this two hour set, which includes one new song, “Each Small Candle” from a forthcoming album. I was fortunate enough to catch this show twice—once in a small concert hall and once in a large arena—and can attest that this CD is an excellent example of the energy and involvement that Roger can command. An absolute must for Floyd fans, and a must-own for all fans of well-crafted Rock and Roll.

You said that each question has only one answer. Well questions 6 and 7 should both be "A.16". Jupiter has 16 moons. The speed, in MHz, of a Mac Classic II is also 16. What gives? Sincerely Ricardo Uriarte

I apologize to anyone who may have been confused by this question. My obviously outdated reference book lists twelve moons for Jupiter, but science now recognizes sixteen. Since the vast majority of respondents chose twelve as the answer to question #6, they must use the same book I do! I'm sorry for the confusion. Ed

Help, each letter of the alphabet is a number, 1-26. What word can you spell that equals 100?
