Nerd Trivia (Answer Key)

By Wyatt Earp | April 29, 2006

Even the promise of a prize was not enough to get you slackers motivated! Only three people (Randal Graves, Fmragtops, and Tyler D.) entered this installment of Nerd Trivia. For shame! The answers will be listed below, and the final results will follow.

Part 1: General Nerd Trivia

1. Give the full name of Squidward’s similar-looking archrival from SpongeBob SquarePants. (Squilliam Fancyson)

2. Name the actor who played Apollo in the original Battlestar Galactica who also plays Tom Zarek in the new series. (Richard Hatch)

3. Name the villain who writes his name on the moon in an episode of The Tick (The Animated Series). (Chairface Chippendale. Hat Tip to Tyler who reminds me that Chairface made the plan, but Professor Chromedome actually did the laser writing!)

4. In the TV series “Smallville,” what is Lois Lane’s nickname for Clark Kent? (Smallville)

5. Name Solid Snake’s female ally in the hit videogame Metal Gear Solid. Only her first name is necessary. Brownie points for the full name. (Meryl Silverburgh)

7. What’s the first name of the Corporate Accounts Payable receptionist in Office Space? “Corporate Accounts Payable, __________ Speaking. Just a moment.” (Nina)

9. In Star Trek 6: The Undiscovered Country, Klingon General Chang is constantly quoting which author? (William Shakespeare)

The Results

Winner: Randal Graves (Damn, that hurt to type.) Randal had a mere three incorrect answers: #4 in Part One, and #3 and 4 in Part Two. Bravo! Now everyone brace yourselves for the inescapable bragging.

Second Place (Tie): Fmragtops and Tyler D. Both Fm and Tyler had four incorrect answers: Fm missed #4 and #5 on Part One, and #4 and #5 in Part Two. Tyler missed #4 in Part One and #1, 4, and 5 in Part Two. Ty gets bonus points for the clarification of the question about The Tick. Nice!

Congrats to all, and thanks for having the wontons to enter!

    If anyone needs some intelligence, there’s some extra oozing out of my ear right now; I’d be glad to put it in a baggie for you.

    Lin – ZIP IT!!! Shouldn’t you be preparing to watch T.S tonight???

    LMC – Oh, he’ll LOVE that!

    Perhaps the next challenge could include people who don’t have cable?

    Preparing? I’m ALWAYS ready!!

    Answer the question, are you related?

    Wait a minute! I want to protest one of my incorrect answers. According to Wikkipedia, there were about five women in Metal Gear Solid. How was I supposed to know which one you wanted? Mei Ling was the chick that saved your game. She invented the Codec. Can’t I get some partial credit?

    Denise – Some people still don’t have cable? Amazing. :)

    Lin – I plead the fifth.

    Fm – I wrestled with that answer. Although she was not technically his partner, she was in the game. Unfortunately, Randal and Ty got it right, but I’ll give you props for effort.

    Okay. As long as I get “props.” I spent alot of time googling those questions. Of course you chose the one Metal Gear Solid game I haven’t played extensively. Oh, and I am saving my money for the PS3 just so I can play MGS4. The screenshots of that bad boy are sweet.
