    Leave the theoretical Rubix cube on a table, red side down (to root orientation). Assume the other colours are blank, one side faces towards you.

    The top face (opposite red) has 5 possible combinations for colour.

    Choose an arbitrary remaining colour for the face pointing at you (to again root orientation). The face opposite you has 3 possible choices.

    There are two remaining colours and blank faces (pointing to the sides). There are 2 combinations on how to colour them.

    5 × 3 × 2 = 30.

      Spoiler: One question left (with answer) 


    ? Which US TV show pitted a young orphan healer against a heretical priest with persuasive powers?
    Carnivàle



      Spoiler: Solved 

    @ Name the song and the music artist:
    PenguinHunter: Aphex Twin / Polynomial C

    ~ Taking the standard six colours, how many distinct ways are there to colour a Rubix cube such that each face has a distinct colour and such that each colouring could identify that cube. (Factor out orientation of course.)
    PenguinHunter: 30

    # Name all three people sitting in the foreground of this picture.
    Mikamickmac: Churchill / Roosevelt / Stalin

    @@ Which movie is the following still from?

    @~ What is the connection between these pairs of cities:
    Manilla/Davao, Auckland/Christchurch, Jakarta/Medan, Nagasaki/Yokohama
    C.J.Woolf: Cities of same nation, but not connected by land

    @# You'll probably need to print this or get a pen and paper. Join the dots (no diagonals) to form a line which crosses each dot only once (i.e., each dot is only connected to two other dots), and joins back to form a loop. Use the lines already given. There is a unique solution: what shape does it give?
      Spoiler: Sample problem 

    slacker:

    ~~ Cam'ron finds three attractive ladies who want to have sex with him. Cam'ron is very cautious with respect to STDs, but he only has two condoms. But the ladies are very attractive. How can Cam'ron have protected sex with each of the three ladies, using the two condoms, such that no surface of a condom touches the genitals of more than one person? And yes, Cam'ron will be putting his penis inside three vaginas, so the answer is not "in the ear".
    Mikamickmac: (1) Condom 1 and 2 on; (2) Just Condom 1 on; (3) Condom 2 inside-out over Condom 1

    ~# What does this graph illlustrate?
    PenguinHunter: Earthquakes (Richter scale, see Japanese [9.0; March 2011] and Chilean [8.8; February 2012]; colours indicate depth)

    Default Quiz Part V

    It's been a while.

      Spoiler: Quiz V 
    А Which video game company has this theme:



    В Which non-European country has the largest namesake of a European capital (in terms of population), and which city is it?


    Г What does the following graph encode:



    Д How many US Presidents were there before John F. Kennedy (excl. JFK himself)?


    Є Name the band depicted:



    Ѕ Fifty sinners with excellent eyesight pissed off God. So God took out fifty post-it notes, some (not necessarily half) of which were green, the rest of which were purple. The sinners did not see the post-it notes. And God told the fifty sinners that he would put a green or purple post-it note on each of their backs; they would not know which colour. And then God would line them up, facing forward, so that they could only see the post-its of (all) the sinners in front of them, not their own. And then, starting at the back, God would ask each sinner in turn what colour post-it they had stuck on their back. They would only be allowed to speak once to say "green" or "purple". And if they got the colour wrong, God would silently give them herpes (and the next sinner(s) would not know if they got it wrong or not). The sinner would speak loud enough for everyone to hear. If a sinner spoke out of turn, they would be shot in the face and given herpes. But God—being a merciful sort of chap—allowed them to confer on a strategy before lining them up. What strategy should the sinners decide upon to collectively minimise their chances of getting herpes?


    З This is an aerial photograph of which city?



    И Which actor starred in films with one-word titles corresponding with a type of fish, a country, and a popular condiment?


    Ѳ This still is taken from which movie?



    І All of this art makes me sick (8,8)


    IA What type of tree is depicted?



    Which music artist wrote four songs with titles of the form "__ Says" with the blank filled by four different female names.


    With white to move, find a two move mate (for white).



    One end of a very stretchy, 1 mile-long piece of elastic sheeting is laid along a floor and tied to a wall. The other end is tied to a car. A turtle starts off walking along the sheeting at a pace of 1 mile/hour. As the turtle starts walking along, the car drives at 10 mile/hour stretching the sheet. Will the turtle ever reach the end of the sheet? If so, roughly how long will it take? If not, how far along the sheeting will the Turtle get?


    What detail does this map encode?



    What occurs for the fifth time at 04:21:49?
