Default Ken Jennings Trivia

Hello all,

We're starting a new thread. Since it's been a while since these rules were posted I went back and found an old list:

Per Ken Jennings' request, the trivia challenge discussed on this message board has the number seven question delayed by one week. This is to avoid easy googling of the question which is designed to foil those who would "cheat". If you know the current number seven question, please do not discuss it here.

The Rules of the Thread
1. If you use the thread to help you get answers, do not submit those answers to the official game.
2. No googling until Sunday. No looking anything up anywhere (and posting it) before Sunday. No checking an article in a magazine you read last week. No checking some old notebook from college. No wikipedia. Not even No checking anything, anywhere - until Sunday. Only information that is stored in your brain, or in the brains of your non-snopester friends and family. But you can't use your family members as a work-around to looking up the information yourself.
3. If you google, don't post that information to the thread until Sunday. Not even as confirmation of the guesses of other posters. Someone else might still know the information on their own.
4. No guess is stupid, throw it out there.
5. No Hinting. If you have a guess or a reasonable belief that you have the right answer, post it. If you are attempting to use hinting as a work-around to the no posting googled answers rule, don't.

And with all that, here we go ...


1. What dish can be called "gnudi" if it's made with ricotta cheese mostly replacing the potato or semolina flour?

2. What state's three oldest colleges are the "consortium" of liberal arts schools named Colby, Bates, and Bowdoin?

3. Cirrus, meaning "curl" in Latin, is the highest of the four main types of what?

4. Between World War I and World War II, what was by far the world's most populous country never to officially join the League of Nations?

5. Who's the best-known artist who still raps using the surname that Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J, and Method Man were all born with?

6. Since 1904, a 43-foot bronze statue of "Christ the Redeemer" carrying a cross has marked a pass in what mountain range?

7. What unusual distinction is shared by all these poems? "The Bells," "Birches," "The Emperor of Ice-Cream," "In Flanders Fields," "Jenny Kissed Me," "The Lady of Shalott," "Lochinvar," "Not Waving But Drowning," "Poetry," "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod."
