Ok, I thought about a game we can play, a question game kinda like in the TV shows.
Rules:
I will start by asking a question that I already know the answer.
The first one that will answer correctly and completly can ask the next question.
The answer would have to be validated by the one that asked the question.


*Example:
Me: When did Michael the Brave rule ?
Someone: 1593-1601
Now you wait for confirmation.
Me: Indeed. Go ahead.
Someone: How many pipelines a Radeon 9800XT has ?
Someone_else: 8.
Someone: Correct. Go ahead.
*End-of-example.
I think you got the picture.

If a lot of people answer wrong, if the one asking desires so, he can offer extra clues (but not mandatory; only one clue is mandatory).
Any type of questions are allowed, as long as those are not specific or irrelevant details of something. Math problems and puzzels are allowed if you can write them here (no links to sites allowed).
If a question is not answered correctly in 49 hours, the question is changed by the one that initially asked it. He asks a new question and gets 5 points.
If noone has answered correctly in 49 hrs and there is an answer that is very close (not in the case of math or puzzles) to the good one, the one providing that answer will ask the next question.
Later editing of the question is not allowed. Once phrased, it stays that way.
I reserve my right to resolve any conflicts that may rise between costentants.
The rest of the users have the right to be given one clue by the one asking the question if the question is difficult and clues seem necessary.
Clonning of questions is not allowed (Example: if an user post a specific puzzle no other user is allowed to post same structure of puzzle even with all other variables changed).
Now about the scoring.
Each correct answer will get one point.
Each unanswered question will get 5 points, as mentioned above.
I get one default point for making this and asking the first question.
No joke/humor questions. Those are too interpretable. I want questions with exact and logical answers. Failing to do so --> warning for asker.
In case of equal score, the one with less penalty points has the higher position.
In case of equal penalty points, the one with less warnings has the higher position.
Warning: phucking-up 3 questions (incomplete, incorrectly phrased or humor-based)will get you a penalty of 3 points.
It's not much for a serious contestant, but can be decisive in some cases.
Now if one messed-up two questions is a raw, it's auto end-turn for him and it's the turn or the one that has the closest answer. If there is none, it's the turn of the first one online (after my confirmation of the question phuck-up; don't worry I don't count myself).
If the one that must ask the next question does not do so within 48hrs, the first one online after 48hrs has the right to ask the next question.
There is now a top on first page, updated probably weekly.
There will also be a hall of fame, with the champions (the ones that earned RedStars or other medals).
Medals are displayed below:

How do you earn them:
The Red Star medal is earned at the completion of a round, meaning a total of 50 points. It is the highest medal possible.
The Black Cross medal is earned by the one with most penalty points at the end of a round. This is worse to get, one might say. You're getting too close to the dark side.
The Veteran medal is earned by those that make 10 points in a raw (in a raw is considered you answering each asked question, or asking questions that were not answered correctly). Not hard to earn. Getting it means you're good.
The Elite medal is earned by those that make 25 points in a raw. You may win this eventually. Getting it means you're very good.
The Tesla Strike medal is earned by those that asked 3 or more questions in a raw that were not correctly answered. Very valuable one. You're on the path of becoming superior.
The Diamond medal is earned by the ones that correctly answer 5 questions in a raw. Not too easy to get, but valuable. Wouldn't hurt you to have some of these.
The Photon medal is earned by those that answer a question within 16 minutes. This is for the very fast type. You must be quick to have it.

Well, here goes the top. At 50 points you get a Red Star.
There will be five levels (one to five stars: Skilled, Expert, Ace, Inhuman and GodLike).

Now starting the first question (First page is reserved).
For other suggestions, PM.
First one finding the answer can ask the next question.

Given five zeroes, using any mathematical operations, can you make a total of 120?

good one, but i have been doing FACTORIALS for sometime now lol.

how an EARTH can you make a number from that then!? well, we know that 0! = 1 (its just a rule you have to accept lol)

and so, with five of these we get 5.

now, 5! => 5*4*3*2*1 = 120

thus, in mathematical terms:

(0!+0!+0!+0!+0!! = 120

i knew it had something to do with factorials as the 0!=1 rule
but i forgot the most basic of all
addition

too bad i didnt want to waste much time on this...

3246251196, you are correct.
(0!+0!+0!+0!+0!! = 120
You may ask the next question.

ok, sorry about double post.

right, this isnt actually mathematical but more physics based.
---

You have a RING (of 10units diameter)
AND
You have a SQUARE (of 5units each side)

now, how do you get the SQUARE tangled into the RING (the sides ARENT breakable lol)

CLUE: (because youll probo need it)

Don't really know what do you mean by "tangeld into." If you could detail this a little...
Anyway, if you were thinking what i'm thinking, that is only possible in 4D space.

The given solution would not be understandable.
you want him to make a 3d representation of a 4d system of objects on a 2d surface support. That would be very not understandable.

Indeed, people should better stick to questions that can have a realistic answer.


The question:
Below, 10 nine letter words have been broken into chunks of three letters. These chunks have been mixed up, no chunk is used twice and all chunks are used. Can you determine what the 10 words are?

Well, most of the words are obvious and what's left is the other more challanging ones.

One question, is it that the first line contains 2 words, the second one the other two, or a word can be made from anywhere , any line.

Anywhere. Any 3 chunks can be mixed.
Lines and columns are irrelevant.

not quite at all my friend.

the solution really:

is to move a 3 dimensional object in a 4th dimensional way to entangle both. i did say it was not realistic. nevermind anyway.
