Re: Sherlock Holmes Quiz Thread

Ok, let's give it a try: 

1.  In the Great Game,  what appeared on Sherlock's little magnifier when he was looking for blood on Joe Harrison's windowsill? 
His own face, upwards and downwards (I think that are the correct words, not sure though )

2.  In Scandal, what part of Sherlock did Irene touch, before she stabbed him with the drugged needle?
I think it's his arm (could be his back, but I think it's his arm).

3.   In Study, What was the Cabbie's  mistake?         
Pink 

4.  In Hounds,  when did Sherlock tell Henry and John that he WAS  going to Dartmoor after all? 
After messing with them for a while saying he was sending his best man etc. and, specially, after John gives him his "secret supply" 

5.  What was the "Reichenbach Fall"  and who did it?   
I don't know what you refer to exactly, but it could be:
a) Sherlock's disgrace, losing his reputation > Moriarty did it.
b) Sherlock's actual fall from the rooftop > this I guess was done by Sherlock himself (though "pushed" by Moriarty).

6.   In Scandal,  what did Mycroft Holmes say about the Secret Service? 
You can't trust them, they all spy on people for money  (gotta love dear old Mycroft).

7.  In Study,  what did the Cabbie's gun do,  when he pointed it at Sherlock and pulled the trigger? 
It was a lighter, so there was a flame (I really, really don't know how to express this better, sorry ).

8.   In  Blind Banker, what was the title of the book that the smugglers were using to crack their cipher? 
London A to Z.

9.   In  Great Game,  what is the main clue of Janus Cars? 
The name (Janus as the god of two faces).

10.   In  Hounds, who gave Sherlock his "cell number"?   
Dr Frankland (he was a doctor, wasn't he? I don't quite remember now).

Re: Sherlock Holmes Quiz Thread

Wow, good answering!
Still, I guess I'll try for a honorable mention, if only for barrel-scraping pedantism, with

3.
Sherlock did indeed state that the error was 'Pink' (and I for one wouldn't want to argue with him on his choice of word) but I presume he meant: the cabbie's failure to realise that the murder vicitm's seriously colour-coordinated pinkness would make her inferredly pink suitcase relatively easy to identify amongst the gerzillions of otherwise black, blue, red etc suitcases dumped in London,

which is not nearly such a pithy line for a great detective.

To avoid Sherlock catching up with him, he should have emptied all her stuff into a black suitcase, or perhaps a Swansea City hold-all, and left that in a dumpster, whilst leaving the pink case at a Barbie convention. As it is, every cloud has a silver(y pink) lining, and he had some fun pursuing his 'tremendous ambitions' before they came to nought.

Re: Sherlock Holmes Quiz Thread

I like it Brit! The mistake was forgetting that the victim had left her overnight bag in the boot of the taxi and it's main, almost unique, identifying feature was that is was 'a frankly alarming shade of pink' to match the rest of her outfit.

Re: Sherlock Holmes Quiz Thread

So true, Davina, not leaving the case with the victim was especially not consistent with the murderer taking care to to leave evidence likely to be interpreted as a 'solo suicide scenario',  and made it more likely that the victim was taken to Lauriston Gardens in a vehicle. Oops! and double Oops!

Note to self:
Gah! Should have mentioned 'frankly alarming shade of' pink!


Although
***Pedantry alert!***

     Sherlock himself said it was the murderer's first big mistake, which it was, in the round. However, it does not preclude other explanations for the absence of the case, some of which were dismissed in passing.
     In fact, I think it was a piece of luck that the case was not with the victim, as Sherlock would then have had the inferenes that it provided sooner (presuming LeStrade had enabled him to go through it, and Sherlock had his extra nicotine patches with him): Since this was the third such unexplained death that had come to the attention of the police, and the press were clamouring for results, all evidence was bound to be sought and examined quite carefully, even if an 'unconnected suicide' remained a possibility.
     Yet, even allowing for a slightly cleverer perp who for whatever reason planned not to leave the case at the scene, they switched their brains off regarding the unusual frankly alarming shade it was in and how this might enable any detective to prioritise its investigation over those in other colours. How much did they really 'think it through'? Why not dump the case a long way away? Hide it in a lock up? Or throw it in the river after slashing it? The cabbie had a vehicle which would not draw attention, knew London well, and had ample opportunity to be aware of where there were CCTV cameras and where there were not. So many people just dump stuff on the pavement (boo!) and most people are strangers to one another and turn a blind eye. If he was still caring at some level and driven to crime by his special circumstances he could have left the contents outside charity shops!

If he even thought "What would Moriarty do?" I doubt he phoned up to check if he was right.

    No, I reckon it was an inadvertantly fortunate 'decision', as it were, not to leave the case at the scene, but the cabbie lacked the savoir faire/sang froid to capitalise on it, which was his second but arguably more serious 'big mistake', and consistent with his display of belief in his own instinctive cleverness, rather than 'thinking it through' consciously or relying on Moriartical instructions, in his final minutes. His third and biggest mistake was taking on Sherlock in the flesh. In the end, Luck was a not a Lady in Pink for him that night, but a Gentleman Captain in Civvies. With a gun.

Meanwhile, back at reality, looking forward to Sherlockskitty's reveal!

Yes  britiganger and everyone  you may  do  research as much as you please,  however you please.  In fact,  I do insist.  (holds out arms)   


Each  player may  answer ALL   questions.    That was the  main point  of the other quiz threads  too,  if  you want to look at those,  you'll see what I mean.   For  this  particular quiz  (my  first one)  I']ve set it up so that EVERYONE  can  answer ALL 10  questions,  and whoever gets the most right,  wins  this  round.   Game ends may 30th. 

As  for   the smileys,  you can ONLY  get them inside a post if you hit  QUOTE,  or  if  you  hit  POST REPLY  at the bottom  of the previous poster's post.   I'm  getting mine  here cos  I  hit  QUOTE  inside your post.   smiley  is  down at the bottom.   

I'll  post the questions   here  as soon  as I  make a few changes  to  ze rules.  I won't change the questions,  since Irene has already answered her share of this quiz.  HOWEVER  I  did change TWO  WORDS  in question number 5,  but Irene's answer still fits,  so we'll leave that alone.  (sorry Irene)     so---don't  just SEE,  OBSERVE  too.   

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ok  this is the newest quiz thread.  Date started—May 25th 2012 

There  are 10  questions.   Each consecutive player must try to answer  as many questions as you can.  The object of this game is to get the most answers correct.  Yes, you may do your research .   Read the stories.   Watch the shows.  Look on the internet.  You may even look at the solar system, if you want.  Point is,  don’t  just answer one—try them all.     

I  will  come  back   Wednesday  May 30th,  to  see who  wins  this round,  ok? Yes,  I have my  own answers.   If there's a tie,  welll....I'll let  my master decide.   MEOW!!!

Re: Sherlock Holmes Quiz Thread

I did a bit of research and will expand on some of my previous answers:

1.  In the Great Game,  what appeared on Sherlock's little magnifier when he was looking for blood on Joe Harrison's windowsill? 
His own face, upwards and downwards. In case this is not the correct way of saying that, I mean this:

2.  In Scandal, what part of Sherlock did Irene touch, before she stabbed him with the drugged needle?
His left arm.

3.   In Study, What was the Cabbie's  mistake?         
To throw the pink case in the street. He should have emptied it and thrown the case and its content sepparately.

4.  In Hounds,  when did Sherlock tell Henry and John that he WAS  going to Dartmoor after all? 
After John gives him his secret supply of cigarrettes.

5.  What was the "Reichenbach Fall"  and who did it?   
Going by Sammy's answer, I think then it is a painting by William Turner. But, I must say, I've allways known that painting as "The Reichanbach Falls" and, as I'm not English native, I understand "fall" as what Sherlock did from Saint Bart's roof and "falls" as the water thing (like Niagara Falls, I mean) so I'm still not sure if this is what you're asking for. But it can be just a problem of my poor English

6.   In Scandal,  what did Mycroft Holmes say about the Secret Service? 
You can't trust them, they all spy on people for money.

7.  In Study,  what did the Cabbie's gun do,  when he pointed it at Sherlock and pulled the trigger? 
It was a lighter, so there was a flame.

8.   In  Blind Banker, what was the title of the book that the smugglers were using to crack their cipher? 
London A Z.

9.   In  Great Game,  what is the main clue of Janus Cars? 
The name (Janus as the god of two faces).

10.   In  Hounds, who gave Sherlock his "cell number"?   
Dr Frankland

Re: Sherlock Holmes Quiz Thread

I believe Sammy and Kazza have all the correct answers, except:

5. Sammy's answer is the correct one.

4. Kazza is correct here.

And, according to Sherlock himself, the answer to 3 is simply "Pink!".

Well, that's my lazy response.

Re: Sherlock Holmes Quiz Thread

Whew!!   What fun this was.   No, really. 


   

Ok  this is the newest quiz thread.  Date started—May 25th 2012 


  Today is May 30, 2012  and I said I’d come back   and give you my answers.   First, I'll calculate the results, and then give you  the answers I was looking for.  If  There's a tie breaker, I've got that planned too.   


  OK!!!!    Here  are the results.    Now,  Irene Adler did her quiz  TWICE,   and the second time  was AFTER  I  said the players could do their research.   So,  Irene,  I  will accept your SECOND  quiz  for this round.   Davina, Britigander, and Tantalus,  thank you ALL for your comments and ‘lazy’ responses.   I  was,  however,  hoping you’d all go deeper.   

  Ok   Here   are the results---Kazza  got  8  out of 10,   but  both Sammy  and Irene  got  9  out of 10,  soooooo—TIEBREAKER is  here 



TIEBREAKER!!!!!!!   How   this  works---   I  will ask  ONE  question,   and the first person to respond,  be it   Sammy  OR   Irene Adler,   will  be the winner of this round.   THEN  we will  decide where to go from here.     


Your  Tie-breaking question---

When Sherlock gets up from lying on  his couch,  what does he step on?   (He’s done this in almost every episode)     

Good luck!!

Mycroft’s popularity doesn’t surprise me at all. He is, after all, incredibly beautiful, clever and well-dressed. And beautiful. Did I mention that?

Re: Sherlock Holmes Quiz Thread

Wow... this is the first time I got so many answers right lol

About your tiebreaker... I would say he steps in a coffe table. I'm not sure if this is the correct name for it, here in Spain we call that coffee tables. Anyway, that's the best answer I can get right now (I'm still a bit sleepy, sorry)

But the thing is, we've taken away all the things that can possibly have happened, so I suppose the only thing that's left, even though it seems really weird, must be the thing that did happen, in fact. (Miss Marple)

Hey Irene,  . You and Sammy did a great job with your quiz answers.   

You are correct, He steps onto the coffee table,  which I think is quite funny  but in character.  Soooo---Congratulations  you  win this round.   

Do  you want to post another quiz  for  us  here?    If  not,  let us know here,  and perhaps I can post another quiz.   (And I'll change the rules too)   

I'm sleepy too,  so  Goodnight!!   Happy sherlocking!!
