Or maybe I'll just declare Eduardo the winner.
He's the one who did all the work. Hats off to John for the tricky one.

I certainly think Eduardo deserves to win this one.

Ok then, that settles it. Eduardo's the winner.

So is eduardo going to continue with the quiz??

eomine's picture

I don't know, Hector. Am I allowed to do it? ;-)

John Hudson's picture

Go for it.

eomine's picture

Ok then.

There's an Emigre typeface which *name* makes reference to a
famous book written by Aldous Huxley. What's the name of that
typeface? And what's the name of the book?

plainclothes's picture

Citizen, Brave New World

(?)

eomine's picture

That's the right book, but the typeface is wrong.
I don't think the word "citizen" is such a reference
for this book either.

If you know which is the longest river in Africa,
you'll probably figure out the answer to this quiz.

;-)

plainclothes's picture

well, I'm not sure what the Huxley reference is, but I
believe Tarzan operated near the Nile... Tarzana?

eomine's picture

Not Tarzana, sorry. Think about "the greatest
moralizing and socializing force of all time."
Hope this will help you! =D

eomine's picture

If you have the book around, check chapter 2 please. ;-)

I hate to answer this now because I don't have a
question of my own and I'm on my way out of the
office. if anyone wants to take my trivia spot, please
help yourself. (assuming I've got the answer....)

Yep!

eomine's picture

You got it now, plainclothes! Congrats! ;-)
Now, since you allowed that, I think that's fair
to let Bj ask our next question.

beejay's picture

Eduardo - Sorry, I don't have anything
really good.

Yeah, that's right, PC got it.

I know what you meant, Bj. ;-)
And I'm going offline soon, so I'll leave this
quiz in hands of our dear Quizmaster.
Have a nice weekend, folks!

beejay's picture

I'll take that back. I do have a question.
If that's okay with the Quizmaster.

I'll wait the standard hour.
