2007-02-24, 04:43 PM
Ladies and Gentlemen, I announce the end of Dementrivia's first round. 11 riddlers took their crack at unveiling the mysterious figure that possibly took the place of George Washington. Now let's see what you thought of...

The Question: According to conspiracy theorists, the Illuminates secretly mudered and replaced George Washington with one of their own. Who allegedly took the place of Washington?

The correct answer: Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Bavarian Illuminates, allegedly replaced George Washington.

On to your answers:

Answer 1:
Abraham the Magnificent and the Abso-wombatting-lutely Cool, The Conqueror of Worlds, the Devourer of Souls, The Darkness Incarnate and the Shrouder of the Veil.
Also known as my junior high history teacher, who also taught Conan the ways of the sword.

Answer 2:
Ronald McDonald, with the Fry Cook Secret Police.

Answer 3:
An insane alien robot clone from the plant Uugard that likes to square dance, but hates country music.

Answer 4:
Benladden took the place of george Washington

Answer 5:
Well, it obviously is Harry Potter, while he's currently minister president of the Netherlands, he has been in power everywhere

Answer 6:
Benedict Arnold.

Answer 7:
Colonel Mustard in the Study with the Candlestick.

Answer 8:
Jesus Christ

Answer 9:
The illuminate wanted to establish a european like monarchy in the USA so they took a poor european aristocrat from Rumania.
The chosen one, Count Vlad Dracul, unfortunatly wanted first to execute W. Penn for misspelling the name of his home country, so the illuminate had to kill him short after the replacement. They infected Mr. Dracul with Epiglottitis and then led him bled to death.

Answer 10:
Sir Hubert Winston Everage II. - Great-Grandfather of Dame Edna Everage. The love for wigs became heritable in the family.

Answer 11:
It was a little known lumberjack from South Carolina, who implemented a process of deforestation, starting with all the cherry trees in sight

(post to suscribe, so that I can join as the next question is asked...)

2007-02-25, 02:03 AM
My vote goes to #1. Is there any chance of joining for round 2?

2007-02-25, 02:05 AM
Yeah, after reading the rules I would assume so.
We'd just start a bit behind is all...
(That's why I didn't vote yet. No sense in getting even more behind because of myself...)

[edit] Ahh... what the heck. Number Two! Go Mayor McCheese!

Hard race between 1 and 11...

2007-02-25, 10:34 AM
I vote for 8. Because answering almost anything with that is funny.

2007-02-25, 04:18 PM
I'll go for response #10

2007-02-26, 06:31 AM
I totally missed this first round. My answer would have so been Dan Brown.

Anyhow, I vote for #7.

7 is good, but the cherry tree reference makes me choose 11

I'm going to go for 7. I would have picked 6 if it had been traitorous eggs (eggs Benedict instead of the traitor himself).

I vote for number 8. Go sacriligious humour! (Hey, just because I'm studying for the pastorate doesn't mean I can't appreciate a good joke when I see one...)

Ladies and Gentlemen: The poll is closed, now let's have a look at your favorites. Starting with:

Answer 1 by Kanthalas
1 vote by Indurain

Answer 2 by Eldritch Knight
1 vote by Shadow

Answer 3 by purple gelatinous cube o' doom

Answer 4 by Frigs

Answer 5 by Gezina

Answer 6 by heretic

Answer 7 by Deckmaster
7 votes by Lucky, Captain van der Decken, DLD, Castaras, Tormsskull, David94 and purple cube

Answer 8 by Rama Lei
2 votes by Deckmaster and Eldritch Knight

Answer 9 by Zar Peter

Answer 10 by faerwain
2 votes by evnafets and Zar Peter

Answer 11 by evnafets
3 votes by Raistlin, faerwain and Atreyu the Masked Llama

And the winner is - pretty disambiguously - Deckmasters answer. If DLD and Van der Decken agree on something, you can be pretty sure that it IS truth. Although I am surprised, nobody told the actual truth about...you know Indurain's plots...back then?

The Standings:

1. Deckmaster (15 Punkte)
2. evnafets (4)
3. faerwain (3)
4. Rama Lei, Eldritch Knight (2)
6. Khantalas, Indurain, Lucky, Captain van der Decken, DLD, Castaras, Tormsskull, David94, purple cube, Zar Peter, Raistlin, Shadow, Atreyu the Masked Llama (1)

Deckmaster takes the lead with a strong first round. However, it is a long way to the finish and there is plenty opportunity to catch him.

Next round will appear later.

[edit] Not that it really matters much, but don't I get a point for voting?
