QUESTION 1: Confused Clarity started a thread in July to gauge how much interest there would be in an OTF Discord channel. How many people showed interest (must be exact for a point)?

As the leader, @Confused Clarity must have been delighted to see a question about himself come up. Especially one that looks like a bit of a guessing game.

But think about it - I wouldn't be asking this question if the answer wasn't unusual... and indeed it was...

ZERO people showed an interest in a Discord channel! Which is probably for the best, since it would probably be rather damaging to the popularity of the forum. And who doesn't love a proper old money forum.

1 for 1 with an answer of 0 here are @sebsy, @Confused Clarity, @Scott1892, @toon_84, @Semi Skilled Milk and @DB08

Tidy.

QUESTION 2: The following two headlines were both included in an OTF thread by what name in July? "Extreme eSports: the very male, billion-dollar gaming industry at a stadium near you", "68% rotten: female critics outnumbered two to one by male counterparts"

Here we have some newspaper headlines, ja? So the key here is to understand what newspaper is most likely to post these headlines.... and there can really be only one answer to that.

So, what has been your favourite "Peak Guardian" article?

These were of course articles that can be described as Peak Guardian!

In tune with their PC media here are @Confused Clarity, @mark1985, @Semi Skilled Milk and @Deisler26 :thup: 

@gechal and @Ackter are both confused here, going for Confused Clarity as their answer.

QUESTION 3: What was Ackter talking about in July when he asked - "Why were they actually in there?"

@sebsy is taking after @bdcuk with his answer of "Bliss Seeker's colon" here, which is good because bdcuk failed to give us any filth this time around. @Bliss Seeker himself went for "his bumhole" which was just as naughty!

The answer, in fact, related to a news story of the time.

A Thai boys football team and their coach have been trapped in a cave under a mountain for several days after water levels rose preventing them from leaving the way they came in. , 

A rescue mission was mounted and they were found on a ledge in the cave. They have been given supplies and water is being pumped out at a rate of 1cm per hour but more water is expected to be arrive.

Today, one of the rescue divers died - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-44734385

On 06/07/2018 at 14:48, Ackter said:

Why were they actually in there?

It was about the Thai cave rescue!

Congrats to @Confused Clarity, @Scott1892, @grff, @dafuge, @Sons FC, @The_jagster, @Anti Spiral, @Mr_Demus, @Semi Skilled Milk and @Deisler26 who rescue a point here.

@Ackter has made a blooper, however! His answer of "biscuits" is good enough for minus 1 point, since the question mentioned him.

QUESTION 4: What happened to Harryseaess for the first time in 6 years, Bhoy for the first time in 2 years, m_fenton for the first time in 6 months and G-Man11 for the first time in about a decade in July?

G-Man gave you a little clue here, and mentioned that I may or may not have been trolling you here. And, you know, he might be right...

On 26/07/2018 at 18:13, batch said:

So, yeah, is anyone else aware of the game ?

Damn you! Must have been winning for about 2 years until now.

On 26/07/2018 at 18:35, Harryseaess said:

I'm well aware of the game and think I was on a 6 year or so run, thanks a lot.

On 26/07/2018 at 22:14, G-Man11 said:

Screw you Batch :mad:

I remember this used to be really big about a decade ago. And then everyone realised how ****ing pointless it was.

On 27/07/2018 at 10:30, m_fenton said:

I think I am (was) only on about a 6 month run, but it would have been several years before that!

They all lost The Game, and sadly, that means you all have too! Sorry about that :D 

@Semi Skilled Milk and @ham_aka_stam lost The Game but won a point as a consolation.

Some unsavoury wrong answers here, from the rude ("they posted a thread that was popular"), to the gross ("they ejaculated"), to the unusual "gas"). A pleasant question to mark all in all.

QUESTION 5: Which OTF member took this photo in July?

Come on guys, it's a boring photo that includes a car park.. We literally have a specialist in this particular area.

On 09/07/2018 at 11:35, Mr_Whippy said:

Love a McColls convenience store in a council estate.

Mr_Whippy took this beautiful snap! Plenty of you know him well, with @Scott1892, @Bliss Seeker, @toon_84, @dafuge, @The_jagster and @Semi Skilled Milk nailing this one.

After 5 of 10 questions, Semi Skilled Milk is on full marks, good work!

QUESTION 6: Which of the following three conspiracy theories are OTF statistically more likely to believe? For a bonus point, what percentage of OTFers believe the most likely one, to within 1%?

a) The Moon landing was faked

b) 9/11 was an inside job

c) We have made contact with aliens

OTF loves a good conspiracy debate, and here we have three crackers to have a good old chinwag about. But which one are OTFers more likely to believe is true? Here are the official verified results:

aliens.png

14.41% of OTFers believe that we have made contact with aliens! Which, thinking about it, is the only one that's actually within the realms of possibility (no offence to the tin foil hat people).

Nobody got the fabled double pointer here, but a point each to @Confused Clarity, @toon_84, @gechal, @bestbrother, @grff, @Anti Spiral, @mark1985, @Semi Skilled Milk, @HawkAussie and @DB08 for getting the aliens element.... nice!

I can understand @gechal & @Ackter being confused with Q2. I had to read it multiple times and was about to message you and then realised what the question was actually asking. Only knew the answer because i'd read the esports thread on the website. 

I wasn't confused, I just didn't have a clue and though your name fitted well.

QUESTION 7: The first episode of what TV show in July was described as cringeworthy by 3 separate OTFers?

If three people are coming to an Internet forum about FM to talk about how cringeworthy a TV show is, it really has to be spectacularly cringeworthy. And I would argue that it certainly was, as it was intended to be.

On 16/07/2018 at 05:22, Ackter said:

I swear there was already a thread but can't find it. This looks like it'll be Brass Eye levels of awesome:

 

On 16/07/2018 at 22:10, Barry Cartman said:

This is already cringy and not at all what i thought it was going to be 

On 16/07/2018 at 22:22, Bliss Seeker said:

I don't know quite what to think of it right now, it's just all very odd and too much cringe :D

On 17/07/2018 at 09:44, Heartwork said:

First episode was pretty hit and miss. Art gallery section was cringeworthy, and the Bernie Sanders bit could've been scrapped as it was obvious Bernie wasn't falling for it.

We were talking about Sacha Baron Cohen's latest bizzarathon, Who Is America?

@Scott1892, @Bliss Seeker, @sebsy and @ham_aka_stam have a full understanding of who America is, and get a point.

@Deisler26 answers the cringeworthy question with the most cringeworthy answer, going for "Piers Morgan noshing off Trump".

QUESTION 8: In July, The Rebel MC went to Wales and noted that there was a ridiculous amount of what in Wales?

7 of you went for sheep here - change the record ya bunch of xenophobes! :p I'm only joking friends, it was a reasonable attempt but is sadly not what we're looking for.

On 27/07/2018 at 20:58, The Rebel MC said:

I'm in Wales...never been before.

What surprised me is the absolute ridiculous amount of Welsh flags we saw driving down. 

There were, apparently, lots of flags in Wales!

@sebsy, @Scott1892 and @grff are not flagging at this late stage of the round and get themselves a point!

@Bliss Seeker finds himself furthest away from a point with his attempt at "speed humps" :(

QUESTION 9: bdcuk bumped a 12 year old TV show based thread in July - Weezer simply replied "Sigh". For one point, what is the title of the TV show and for another, what about bdcuk's post made Weezer sigh?

I thought this was a bit of a toughy, but there is quite a smattering of points here, which I'm impressed with!

On 21/07/2018 at 15:21, bdcuk said:
On 21/07/2018 at 15:57, Weezer said:

Sigh.

Thought the original series was pretty diverse for its time tbh. The hero was a girl. They had a black slayer. And a lesbian relationship that wasn’t just done for titilation.

The TV show we were looking for is Buffy the Vampire Slayer! And for a bonus point, Weezer was sighing at the news that it was getting a reboot!

I've never watched this show, I don't think I intend to. I always preferred Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Salem is a straight up G.

The following bloodsucking legends get points here:

2 points: @sebsy, @Confused Clarity, @Anti Spiral

1 point: @Ackter

QUESTION 10: Which former OTFer is this a photo of?

Well, unless somebody of the male persuasion quite likes to paint their nails, I've narrowed down the options quite significantly here - and plenty of you took advantage.

On 09/07/2018 at 12:51, Gizzy said:

And lastly as I need to catch up, one of Mrs Gizzys new tattoo..

WRMH6491.thumb.JPG.ac3c7a84f1cd5ede2ae18a9118706608.JPG

This is a photo of Mrs Gizzy and her lovely new tattoo!

@Scott1892, @gechal, @bestbrother, @grff, @Ackter, @Sons FC, @The_jagster, @KF1990, @Anti Spiral, @mark1985, @Semi Skilled Milk and @Deisler26 have an excellent working knowledge of OTF's female population and have got themselves a point to finish the round.

Pretty much everyone who didn't get it went for OTF's other noted ladywoman, Kym, which was, in the words of Mr Walker, good but not right.

Particular commiserations to @Bliss Seeker who actually laughed at the idea of everyone going for Mrs Gizzy, before himself going with Kym :D 

July is in the books, leaderboard is on its way!!

Can't believe I've just lost the game again!

We're into August, and the end of this year's edition is, tragically for some, pleasingly for others I'm sure, coming into view. August was a HOT month, a real hotty! As such a few of you must have been outside playing, as there wasn't a whole lot going on with the forum. As such this was the best month to make up for all the Britishness to @Mr_Demus... question 9 wasn't actually on OTF (forgive me my children, it was slim pickings), but it is all about Denmark! Yay!

Round 8 - AUGUST

1. How did a man from Seattle die in August that @Bliss Seeker described as "a pretty epic way to go out"?

2. What was @Recky_D talking about in August when he simply said "oh dear, oh dear, oh dear"?

3. In August, a British woman complained about her holiday to Benidorm, which was described as "pathetic" and "entitled" on OTF. What was the basis of her complaint?

4. An OTFer with just 8 posts to his name asked us in August if we have ever been *what*, leading to widespread confusion on the forum? CLUE: pretty sure it's not a real word

5. What are these OTF quotes from August describing? "Proof that British comedy is on its arse", "Poor year", "The winner is good, the rest are awful"

6. In August, @Gimpy told us that he thought Rafa Benitez would be a perfect fit in the Westfield branch of what shop, and for a bonus point, why?

7. What did @mark1985 post a picture of in the SNAPOFT thread in August, that lead multiple OTFers to congratulate him?

8. What did @toon_84's son say to him in August that means Top Gear is now banned in his house?

9. Hi @Mr_Demus, I have a question for you - what did Denmark controversially ban in August, issuing the first fine for somebody defying the ban a few days later?

10. @Mark H suggested the following for somebody's bio on what service? "Author. Dreamweaver. Visionary. Plus actor". For a bonus point, what is his suggestion a reference to, which I particularly enjoyed?

 

Deadline for your August answers is 10pm on Thursday 20 December... ish. I'm actually going out on the beers on Thursday evening, but will be doing the answers when I get in - which could be very entertaining for you all.

Best of luck!
