I will valide only three of Ray's factoids because Julian Edelman suspension for PEDs was long served come the Superbowl (the fact that the NFL only gives 4 games suspension for those is another issue)

So, Ray, you're on the clock. If nobody can match your 3 (Jonster is at one, everybody else is at zero) come tomorrow 20:05 French time, you get the point :D

EDIT : Well then, time's up!!

1 - Ray502 - 6pts
2 - PlumGMK - 3pts

4 - Lysol - 1pt
4 - The Jonster - 1pt
4 - Aaron - 1pt
7 - Rsandee - 1 point of shame, boo!!

Most of those aren't gods. I guess you misread the question.

One of those doesn't appear in the Illiad.

This is the sort of thing I "should" know, but clearly don't. But since this quiz has lasted 20.5 weeks and counting, I'll hazard…

Apollo, Hera, Aphrodite, Zeus, Athena and Poseidon?

Nice try, but this is a non-verbal sentence.

It's a set with certain operators that meet certain properties but it's been so long since I studied this I'll definitely get some of them wrong. :P

I started out on a response last night, but then came to the same conclusion as Humch, despite the fact that I was able to rattle them off, not one year ago. :confus: Now that my bed isn't calling me I'll have another stab at it…

A set, V, defined over a field, K, of scalars, is a vector space if it is endowed with the operations of vector addition and scalar multiplication such that, for A, B, C in V and a, b, 1 in K, we have:
  1. A + B = B + A
  2. (A + B) + C = A + (B + C)
  3. There exists a zero vector 0 in V such that A + 0 = A
  4. A vector A has an additive inverse –A so that AA = 0
  5. 1A = A
  6. a(A + B) = aA + aB
  7. (a + b)A = aA + bA
  8. (ab)A = a(bA)
So, did I pass? :oops2:

On top of that, I would also add that the vector addition and the scalar multiplication are invariant in V: for all A, B in V and a in K, then A + B is in V, as well as aA.

Ah yes, the closures. I guess I just couldn't be bothered mentioning them. :fou:

Still, I wonder how this question squares with this conversation
