ROUND 10

Team Gerbil Set Me Up

 

1) From his house on W Street, Kambir Abdul Rahman was videotaped paying thousands of dollars to Congressmen such as John Murphy, Frank Thompson, Richard Kelly, and John Jenrette. The problem for them was that Mr. Rahman wasn't a sheik, but an ex-con in disguise. His house was actually rented by

the FBI, part of the million dollars they spent in sending 19 politicians to jail for bribery, influence peddling, and other crimes. For 10 points, name this 1980 scandal.

Answer: ABSCAM

 

2. Methyl isocyanate and water react violently when mixed, a fact that workers failed to remember when flushing out a pipe used to filter the substance. The flushing hose used remained on, pouring water into a tank of the substance, whose leaky valve went unchecked until too late. At 12:45 in the morning,

without warning to the community, the first of 40 tons of methyl isocyanate gas began to drift from the plant. Anywhere from 6500 to 16000 were killed, and 20000 suffered permanent damage. FTP, name the town where this occurred, an Indian city once grateful for the presence of Union Carbide.

Answer: BHOPAL

4. There are still rumors that this four-word question referred to the number of times the subject slept with a married woman. The person asked this question at the corner of Manhattan's Park Avenue and 88th Street in autumn 1986 claims the whole incident was a case of mistaken identity, which seems unlikely for such a recognizable face. FTP, give this question originally presented, along with a severe beating, to Dan Rather.

Answer: WHAT'S THE FREQUENCY, KENNETH?

 

5. The 1996 Select baseball card series has a set with this phrase as its unique name. The name started as phrase uttered by a sportscaster, who had it wrong in the first place. He used the word 'in' rather than the grammatically correct word until a letter from a high school Spanish teacher set him straight. FTP points, give this name derived from Dan Patrick's use of the term to denote someone who is hot.

A: EN FUEGO

 

6. The name's the same: A three-word song title that brought success to two artists in the eighties. It was first a hit in 1983, reaching #21 on the Billboard charts, backed by a video in which the female lead singer appeared dressed as a man. In 1987 the title returned and reached #1 as the title track of one of the other singer's movie flops. FTP, give this song title, shared in separate singles by Eurythmics and Madonna.

A: WHO'S THAT GIRL

 

7. January 15, 1919 started out as a clear winter's day, but turned ugly when a rumbling was heard from the Purity Distilling Company. A tank blew, sending 2 million gallons of this down Commercial Street and into

the waterfront, where it stained the harbor brown till summer (some would say it's still brown). 21 died and 150 were injured that day in Boston when, FTP, a flood of what product, intended to be distilled into rum, went awash in the streets?

A: MOLASSES

 

8. Originally called the Billy DeBeck Award, its first recipient was _Steve Canyon_ creator Milt Canniff in 1946.

FTP, identify this award presented to the Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year as voted by the National Cartoonists Society, named for the cartoonist who gave us Professor Butts along with several wacky multi-part machines.

A: The REUBEN

 

9. Katherine Bennet, an aging actress who plays a "woman they loved to hate" on _Skeffingtons_, suffers from a nasty divorce, a crack-smoking son, vicious costars, and lurid tabloid stories. Enter French businessman Jean-Claude Valmer, who sweeps Katherine off her feet. She fears he's too good to be

true, and he is. While not part of the author's lawsuit against Random House, perhaps the publisher should have used this book in its defense. FTP name this book, the latest piece of crap from bad actress turned bad

author Joan Collins.

A: _INFAMOUS_

 

10. This school ended the 1995 season as the division I leader in total offense. It finished fourth in points per game with 44. Quarterback Mike Maxwell was not only the fourth most efficient passer, but he led the nation in total offense and Alex Van Dyke led Division I in receptions. Still, this Big West champ couldn't finish the job. FTP, name this school, nicknamed the Wolfpack, which lost a bowl game in its own state when it dropped a 35-34 overtime decision to Toledo in the Las Vegas Bowl.

A: University of NEVADA (_NOT_ UNLV)

 

11. He burst onto the directorial scene with _Death of a Gunfighter_ in 1967. Since then he's helmed such gems as _Morgan Stewart's Coming Home_, _The O.J. Simpson Story_, and _Hellraiser: Bloodline_. How does he keep getting work with such a crappy resume? Simple..."he" doesn't really exist. FTP, give the full pseudonym assigned to films by the Directors Guild when the actual director petitions to disown it.

A: ALAN SMITHEE

 

12. His series _Good Time Harry_ lasted all of 5 episodes, while _Hail to the Chief_ didn't do much better at seven. He found more success on the other side of the camera, winning an Emmy in 1989 for producing _The Tracey Ullman Show_, and he recently got the nod to direct the film version of _Bewitched_. Days before an LA tribute to the TV show he's best known from, he passed away from an aortic aneurysm. FTP, name this man who played straight arrow Don Hollinger, boy toy of Marlo Thomas's Ann Marie on _That Girl_.

A: Ted BESSELL

 

13. He's approximately 7 years old, 3-foot-5 and 57 lbs. Distinguishing features include pointed teeth and ears, wings, and elongated fingers and toes.

FTP, name this creature, whose reported sightings in 10 states have been well documented in the _Weekly World News_.

A: BAT BOY

 

14. The 62 volumes of this set were thought to have been saved by farmers from a plane crash outside of Dresden. Reporter Gerd Heideman were showed selections from them by a purported document dealer, and before checking their authenticity, Heideman's paper bought them for $4 million. However, it turns out the document merchant, Konrad Kujau, was actually a forger of Nazi memorabilia. This was the story behind, FTP, what mid 1980s forgery?

A: HITLER DIARIES

 

15. _Clockers_ author Richard Price wrote the screenplay for this 16-minute, color and black-and-white film, inspired by the 1985 shooting of a student who left Harlem for Phillips Exeter Academy. The black-and white segments are rarely shown on television, however, which probably saves Wesley Snipes a

great deal of embarrassment. FTP, name this Michael Jackson extended music video directed by Martin Scorsese, in which the first sung words are, "Your butt is mine."

A: Michael Jackson's BAD

 

16. It comes from the roasted and ground pods of an evergreen known as the _Ceratonia siliqua_. Per ounce it has 51 calories, much better than the 98 per ounce of the substance it's used as a substitute for. It also has more carbohydrates, but less proteins and fats. However, the fact that it's naturally sweeter than it's more common counterpart means that cooking with it requires the use of less sugar (in some cases up to half), thus protecting the teeth. FTP, name this somewhat palatable health-food substitute for chocolate.

A: CAROB

 

17. His real first name is Robert, middle name of Craig. He released a self-titled album in 1974, where he doesn't sing but does recite "Why," a poem he wrote. At 58 years old he no longer does what made him famous, other than as parody in ads. One of his many appearances on ABC's _Wide World of Sports_ holds the record for the most watched event on that show, when 52% of all US households tuned in to see him jump 13 Greyhound busses at King's Island in Ohio. FTP, name this man whose better known stunts included attempts to jump the fountain at Caeser's Palace on motorcycle and the Snake River Canyon in a rocket sled.

A: EVEL KNIEVEL

 

18. TV ads for prescription medication are getting ridiculous. It's not like you can just walk into a drugstore and buy this stuff! Recent ads for this brand name version of fexofenadine make few solid claims, but do

suggest that it gives the ability to windsurf on wheat. FTP, name the drug that completes this tag line: "This allergy season, go far afield. Ahh! _(blank)_!"

A: _ALLEGRA_

 

19. Geoffrey Douglas deals with the US upset of this nation in 1950 in his book _The Game of Their Lives_. He also talks to the five living members of that team, whose only goal that day came from Joe Gaetjens, a man of Hatian-US descent who disappeared shortly after that 1950 World Cup in Brazil. FTP, name the soccer power the US beat 1-0 that day, a nation whose only Cup win came in 1966, the host of this past summer's European Championships.

A: ENGLAND (DO NOT ACCEPT Great Britain; prompt at that)

 

20. It was originally developed by Karl Elsener in 1891, and had but four tools on it. He developed a spring mechanism in 1897 that allowed for the inclusion of more tools without increasing handle size. The

government contract he made these for was split in 1908, with Elsener's firm keeping half and French-speaking cutlerer Theodore Wenger getting the other half. Today their companies supply 25000 of them, though they have anodized aluminum sides rather than the red plastic of those in stores. FTP, name this family of devices which ranges from one with 2 blades to an 8 ounce, 29 tool behemoth.

A: SWISS ARMY KNIVES

 

21. The prototype for this car was built by AeroVironment, a California R&D firm founded by Paul MacCready, the man behind the _Gossamer Condor_ and the _Solar Challenger_. Started in 1988 with a $3 million budget, the prototype was unveiled at the 1990 Los Angeles Auto Show. Six years and a name change later, it rolled off the production line. FTP, name this GM car, the first production vehicle from the Big 3 auto makers to run on electricity.

A: EV1 (accept IMPACT up to point where say 'name change')

 

22. Instead of using standard half-inch masters, this process uses one inch masters that allow for side by side tracking. This leads to wider frequency response and heightened clarity. Improvements in high-speed duplication allow for further clarity of high frequencies, greater bass response, and less distortion. Dynamic range can increase by up to 13 decibels. FTP, name this process or give its three letter abbreviation, whose quality control method can be heard in the quick series of high-pitched tones at the beginning of the tape.

A: EXPANDED DYNAMIC RANGE or XDR

 

23. In 1995 he appeared in 7 games, completing 71 of 142 passes for 952 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions. Drafted in 1987 by the LA Raiders, he was traded to Dallas in 1991, where he led the Cowboys to the playoffs that year due to injuries to Troy Aikman. He made NFL history when he became the first player selected in the 1995 expansion draft. FTP, name this QB who signed with the Carolina Panthers this past April, becoming the first player to play for both expansion teams.

A: Steve BEUERLEIN

 

24. It left Trepassey Bay, Newfoundland on May 16, 1919. During its 11 day trip it lost two engines, the chief mechanic lost a hand in the propellers, and another crew member spent most of the time sick. Still, when it arrived in Plymouth, England on the 27th, it became the first plane to make a trans-Atlantic flight (even if it spent as much time on water as in the air). FTP, name this NC-4 flying boat, which shares its name with a term used for politicians in office who aren't coming back.

A: LAME DUCK

 

25. If you've noticed a similarity between the cover of this singer's new album and some recent print ads, it's no coincidence. Photos taken of her, used to tout Silk Reflections hosiery, turned out so well that one of them wound up on the cover of her new album, _Wildest Dreams_. FTP, name this "reason God invented high heels"

A: Tina TURNER

 

26. Denny Colt, a young criminologist, is apparently murdered by the villainous Dr. Cobra. Very much alive, Colt takes up residence in a crypt in Wildwood Cemetery, allowing his enemies to believe he was killed. He shares his secret with Police Commissioner Dolan, Dolan's fetching daughter Ellen, and a stereotypically-drawn black sidekick, Ebony White. So goes the origin of, FTP, what comic-strip hero who wears a rumpled blue suit, fedora, and eye mask, the 1940 creation of Will Eisner?

A: The SPIRIT
