Every once and a while, when the existence of this thread touches my memory, I have sufficient cash, and I think it would be enjoyable, I will post a trivia question or riddle and the first person to answer correctly gets a prize:

You can research the question using any method that you desire.

The first question: What is this called "⁂"?
prize = $5

OxR is correct. The first King of Hanover not to be born in England is George V of Hanover, not to be confused with George V of Britain.

This is a riddle of sorts: Sodium + Iron = Rubidium, how?
The first person to post how sodium + Iron = rubidium, will get $5.

Bookworm is correct!

The atomic numbers of sodium and iron add to make the atomic number of rubidium.

I don't feel like posting another question right now, but I if someone could post after me so I can post again when I do feel like it that would be nice.

Is there a restriction on answering two in a row?
(And I realize this isn't the kind of post you want because you need to respond to it, thus negating me making it for 'next post' purposes ;) )

I'm assuming that would be Wikipedia, so it's an online encyclopedia.

While Wikipedia is named after that bus indirectly, I am looking for website named after the bus directly. However, my wording of my question was ambiguous, so you get prize money anyway.


The first person to say the topic of the website directly named after the bus get another $10.

Tikvah wins the prize. However, I am feel lazy and am not going to post another question right now. If someone else could post after me, that would be nice.

You could also just leave that for now, then repost the winner announcement with the new question when you're ready to continue. ;)

I'll take the free post opportunity though. :-

New question for $30

How is the set of numbers {1,4,5,8,3} related to Conway's Game of Life?

STOP.

The sentence above is false.

I dare you not to read this.
Hey! I said not to read this.
Maybe if I talk like this.
Wait, you still see me? *sighs* I give up.
