The answer to yesterday's question was A. The Smurfs.

Today's trivia question.

What is the designation for the first stealth fighter.

A. F-117

B. F-22

C. B-2

D. F-14


A. F-117 (although if I am right, technically it is really more of a bomber. The F designation was a ruse to fool intelligence agencies. Some say that should be called the B-117)


Actually it should be the A-117, the F-117 is a ground attack aircraft like the F-111 Ardvark and the F-105 Thunderchief. None of which are fighters.

D. Bite their own skin. "Dermatophagia" comes from the Greek Δέρμα (Derma) meaning skin and φάγειν (phagein) meaning to eat if you must know. :-B

I got the idea from Hellsing. The Nazi doctor was always biting his fingers and I got to wondering if that was a mental disorder.

That's actually a different, but related condition (onychophagia). Both are considered impulse control disorders, and dermatophagia has another name: wolf biting. ;)

I'm not sure I agree. I don't think he was biting his nails, plus he mostly wore gloves. Though that means he wasn't biting his skin directly either. I'm going to have to go back and watch/read Hellsing now. I guess any excuse to watch anime :lol:

So i/we have been doing this for a while, does anyone have any suggestions? Any categories/subjects you'd like to see more often? Should we keep some kind of score? Should I put more transformers questions in? Is there enough bacon, not in the question but in general, for everyone?

No question today just a tid bit.

Today in 1938, Seabiscuit defeats War Admiral in an upset victory during a match race
deemed "the match of the century" in horse
racing.

Oops forgot to post the answer to Thursday's question Which was D. Bite their own skin, congratulations JG.
