Season 106 - WE HAVE A NEW CHAMPION !!!

Just like Season 105, Season 106 was on the easy side. This time the average difficulty was 55. The two most difficult questions came on day 13 (Ballooning) and 14 (Hong Kong Dessert) with difficulties of 13 and 23, respectively. 

When looking at your ratings, you were quite happy with the questions. Your average rating landed on 3,8 out of 5. Your least favorite question came on Day 5 (the Danish Badminton player – rating 3,2) and your favorite question fell on Day 11 (British Monarchy – rating 4.1). I would like to thank Rishabh Gupta for supplying this excellent set of questions. That the set was a little on the easy side is entirely on me, as I wanted to include more hints in the questions than needed. 

When a set is on the easy side, it is always crowded at the top of the tables. And that proved to be the case this time too. On the final day of the season six players were just one point shy of a perfect season and with no one going the full distance we were in for another tie-break. Bob T., Duncan, Dorian, Hendrik, Jens and Lars had to name as many tracks as possible on Bruce Springsteen’s 1995 Greatest Hits compilation. The question was who was really the boss of The Boss. It was a tight race between Dorian (6), Hendrik (7) and Bob (8). Lars did very well by naming 10 songs, but Jens turned out to be just a little Togher Than The Rest. With 11 points Jens is our new champion.  This is Jens’ third championship. Please give him a big round of applause!

Question of the day quiz – Season 106 - Day 12 of 14

Category: Referendums and Elections

In 2019, a non-binding referendum of independence was held in an autonomous region of Papua New Guinea. More than 98% of the voters voted for independence. Because the referendum was non-binding, it is still unclear (as of 2020) whether Papua New Guinea will grant the autonomous region independence. What is the name of the region?

Answer: The Autonomous Region of Bougainville _________________________

In the the 2009 Pixar animated feature film Up, the protagonist of the film, Carl Fredricksen, fills up countless colorful balloons with helium and flies away in his house. In 2010 FAA licensed pilot Jonathan Trappe mimicked Fredricksen's fictional achievement by filling 54 industrial strength balloons with helium and used them to float over the English channel - a feat no one had ever achieved before. What is this special type of ballooning called?

Answer: Cluster Ballooning

Question of the day quiz – Season 106 - Day 14 of 14

Category: Desserts

In March 2019, hundreds of thousands of Hong Kongese took to the streets in protest of the Fugitive Offenders amendment bill - a bill that would undermine Hong Kong's autonomy and infringe civil liberties. In an attempt to show solidarity with the protestors, a Hong Kong gelato shop introduced a new flavour. Sharp black peppercorns are responsible for the taste of the frozen dessert. Protesters who have tried the dessert describe it as being pungent and irritating and they relate that eating it makes it difficult to breathe - exactly like the experience it is trying to replicate. What is this very special flavour of gelato called?

Answer: Tear Gas
