hi.gif

Thank you very much to the 39 of you that played this round of FF. I have now (after a day of prep *breathes*) got the results. Have you won? Did you mistake this for Pointless? We shall find out ;o (doing this early as BJSC semis will be later this evening, hope there's still people around at this time x)

I'm just finishing some last bits of prep, but we shall start very soon! The biggest scoring top answer was 31, the smallest was 6. What do you think they are? ;o

Hoping I've not flopped! The 'really bad song' will probably be very varied, thinking I might have sacrificed a few points for not putting the AMAZING 7 Years down.

Hyped for this *.* accompanying this results show with Domino's pizza heart.gif

My guess for the low scoring top answer is 'a really bad song'! A bit more stumped on the biggest scoring one, maybe the Banksy question?

I don't think I've done very well in this one at all, probably bottom half but it's always fun to follow these Live.

So this was an interesting battle throughout between Dragon and Unicorn - perhaps the two mythical creatures you'd first think of. But it's Unicorn that wins out in the end (would that be the case in real life I wonder? ;o), I'm kinda surprised, but maybe that's cos Dragons are totally awesome and they're always the first I think of, maybe as a Game of Thrones. Nonetheless, Unicorns are awesome to in different ways and it just clocked halfway through the week that there's one in my signature so I was perhaps giving it an unfair advantage...laugh.gif sorry those who answered dragon, I should change my sig to a dragon next to remedy this

The only other scoring answers are the (allegedly seen) Loch Ness Monster and Theseus' antagonist, the Minotaur. Jacob goes for Gryffon, wonderful creature but probably not suitable for FF, Werewolf is one I'm surprised more people didn't go for, but I can see how it's more fantasy than mythology.

I would've loved this question for Pointless, could've had so many wonderful monsters mentioned, like my personal favourite, the Chimera *.

Oooh not bad a start, I'm surprised why more people went with Unicorn, not that I thought Dragon would be top answer but still.

I nearly went with Gryffin first and helped Jacob out laugh.gif

Those who said the Loch Ness monster didn't read the question then, it asked for a mythical creature!!1! (common sense)

Yay off to a good start *.* Unicorn instantly came into my head with dragon shortly following, glad I stuck with the former!

I didn't even think of a unicorn - even with the sig! But you're right, with the right parameters this could have been amazing for pointless, what with chimeras and basilisks and pegasi all available.

Q2. A work of street art by Banksy



Balloon Girl (31)
Shaphne

The Antics Roadshow (1)
Spynz Munich
JosephStyles


Gangsta Rat (0)
dxh182


Police Sniper (0)
Jacob


Dismaland (0)
DalekTurret32

So here we are the biggest landslide...and if you need any further proof I didn't fix my own round biggrin.gif I really should've seen this one coming, especially as it was the first result on Google which I knew people would rely on for this one, but I did stick to my guns, as painful as it was watching the constant Balloon Girl answers come in, and at least someone else gave me a point! *. Balloon Girl is nonetheless still very iconic in it's simplicity and was voted in a recent poll as the greatest British art piece iirc.

I hope you are all aware of the enigma that is Banksy and his extensive output of wonderful, political street art (that I have as a calendar ;o), some others are mentioned here. Flower Thrower was the first of his works I came across and I still love everything about it. Gangsta Rat and Police Sniper get a mention, but unfortunately don't score when an incorrect answer - The Antics Roadshow, a title of a documentary about him not a single work - alas does score a point with two people making that mistake. Gah, this is a reason I hate FF pirate.gif Dismaland is also an incorrect answer that doesn't score, an exhibition rather than an artwork (and one I wanted to get tickets for, but missed out #bitter :'()

Damn it I should've thought with Dragon/ Unicorn but seriously I get a pointless on Gryffon? I thought they were fairly mainstream and honestly I expected the scope to be so wide for this that it'd be even more split than it is.
