The Beer Trivia Thread

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by _joel_, Jan 13, 2007.

  1. another thing the boys of works infrastructure found out through our extensive research is that beer can make you smarter.

    i just knocked the top off a few and here are the questions -

    1)Where does red wine get its colour?

    2)Which famous statue guards Copenhagen Harbour?

    3)What vegetable is used in Sauerkraut?

    answer them, and ask your own :beer: :beer: :beer: :dance:
  2. mmmm sambuca works well too

    1)Where does red wine get its colour?

    from soaking the grape skins

    2)Which famous statue guards Copenhagen Harbour?

    Little mermaid

    3)What vegetable is used in Sauerkraut?


    1: Whats the difference between two and four stroke engines ?

    2: Terminal velocity =

    3: the air speed velocity of a swallow =
  3. african or european?
  4. Of What? it is dependent on the density of the object
    Here is the equation to assertain the TV Of an Object

  5. 1: Whats the difference between two and four stroke engines ?
    a two stroke completes an entire cycle of inlet-compression-power-exhaust in 2 strokes of the piston. starting after the exhaust stroke it goes like this - piston rises, drawing air/fuel mixture in to crank case (meanwhile it is also about to do a power stoke which makes the piston come down) the piston comes down, forcing air/fuel mixture from crankcase in to combustion chamber via a transfer port, as this happens the air/fuel forces out the spent air/fuel in the chamber as exhaust gas, the piston then rises compressing the air/fuel mixture at which point it sparks, combusts and send the piston back down again.
    a four stroke completes the same cycle in 4 strokes.
    inlet - piston goes down,air/fuel is drawn in to combustion chamber through inlet valve.
    compression - piston rises compressing air/fuel.
    power - spark happens, causing combustion, sending the piston back down.
    exhaust - piston rises forcing out exhaust through exhaust valve

    2: Terminal velocity = the maximum speed at which a given object will travel. this occurs when the object reaches equilibrium as friction by air or other medium becomes equal to acceleration.

    3: the air speed velocity of a swallow = how big is it?
  6. From the anthocyanins in the grapes - the exact shade of colour is dependent on pH.
  7. next beer

    which pop group is named after a stage in the sleep process?
  8. REM
    but I'm passing back to you Joel, I gotta go pick up my eldest from a party :p
  9. :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

    "I don't know that.....aaaaagggghhhhh!!!"
  10. 1)what does DNA stand for?

    2)what substance/material is the softest according to "moes scale of hardness"?

    3)what is the chemical symbol for lead on the periodic table of elements?

    :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer:

    i drink too much :rofl:
  11. Deoxyriboneucleic Acid

    talc (had to google that one :p )

    Pb (is my initials so always known that one )
  12. got a voule of new ones for ya :p

    1./ What were the last 2 months added to the calender we now know?

    2./ what makes the grass green?

    easy ones i know.. but gotta keep it goin somehow :p
  13. Oh ? I dont knowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

    M.P strikes again :LOL:

    But on the other hand, the answer to the question is here >

    Three shall be the number thou shalt count

    Airspeed can also be predicted using a published formula. By inverting this midpoint Strouhal ratio of 0.3 (fA/U ≈ 0.3), Graham K. Taylor et al. show that as a rule of thumb, the speed of a flying animal is roughly 3 times frequency times amplitude (U ≈ 3fA).5

    We now need only plug in the numbers:

    U ≈ 3fA
    f ≈ 15 (beats per second)
    A ≈ 0.22 (meters per beat)
    U ≈ 3*15*0.22 ≈ 9.9

    ... to estimate that the airspeed velocity of an unladen European Swallow is 10 meters per second.

  14. Which of the following cities is most northerly?:

  15. 1. That'd be the two months the Romans changed the names of - July and August.

    2. Chlorophyll

    Oh and Perth is the most northern of those cities.
  16. Well there was no question being asked, so i'll go:

    Whats the rate of falling acceleration in a vacume, on Earth?

    JD; leave it.... no, dont press reply :p
  17. 9.something meters per second per second
  18. i think you mean gravity??? 9.8m/s
  19. but the most precise answer will come from the beer-drinking-trivia-buff!

    9.80665 m/s2 at sea level.
    however, geographical changes can make small variations to this.


    what is the catalyst in the equation that explains photosynthesis?
  20. :shock:

    Here it all is summed up in 4 words:

    Suck - Squeeze - Bang - Blow. :wink: :LOL: :LOL:
