I believe it is time for Round 10 answers!

 

Question 66: Which Syrian city is considered to be the oldest continually inhabited city?

 

Answer:

Spoiler

Damascus, though there is evidence to dispute this. Some findings show evidence of settlement as early as 8000-10000 BC. UNESCO cites the founding date as around 3000 BC. Aleppo, also a Syrian city, is also a possible candidate. A point if you got either of those, since the question asks for Syrian cities.

 

 

Question 67: Symbol on the album "Master of Puppets" cover?

 

Answer:

Spoiler

White crosses. Rows and rows of them.

 

 

Question 68: Dangerous fish for sushi eaters?

 

Answer:

Spoiler

Blowfish or pufferfish or fugu. Parts of the fish contain the neurotoxin tetrodotoxin, which can paralyze the muscles, slowly leading to asphyxiation if medical attention isn't received. Chefs train rigorously for years to be certified to prepare the dish.

 

 

Question 69: What instrument does Dana play in Ghostbusters?

 

Answer:

Spoiler

Cello.

 

 

Question 70: The study of plant life is called?

 

Answer:

Spoiler

Botany. Herbalism/herbology is the study of herbal medicine.

 

 

Question 71: What are the gaps between nerve cells?

 

Answer:

Spoiler

Synapses. Very important for transmitting electrical and chemical signals along the nervous system.

 

 

Question 72: Project Wildfire is in which Michael Crichton novel?

 

Answer:

Spoiler

The Andromeda Strain. The sixth novel Crichton wrote, but the first under his own name.

 

 

Ok, 68 points from previous rounds plus the 7 points from this round gives a total of 75 total possible points thus far.

 

New round starts tomorrow!
