so we're makin' it real up in here now...
the five for friday is gonna have some prizes and so i'd like to state right now that we're kinda on the honor system here. any true trivia contest is one that tests YOUR knowledge of useless information...NOT your ability to look it up on the internet. i am hoping that you will participate in the spirit of fun competition and rely on your brain power rather than your google power.

we will be featuring a five for friday throughout the summer (excluding a couple weeks when i'll be on vacation or craig and i will be in new mexico--ALBUQUERQUE COMIC EXPO, y'all--june 21-23!!!) the prizes will be listed ahead of time and are drawn from our personal collection of wild and wacky curios, books and dvds--call it the perhapanaut archives. some are cool, some bizarre, some will make you not want to win again. i will ship them out asap after the winner each week is announced.
good luck!

as stated wednesday, there is a prize for the winner of today's quiz. along with a copy of marc sceurman and mark moran's WEIRD US, the first person to send in their submission of the answers correctly gets a copy of the dvd bigfoot: the mysterious monster, narrated by peter graves (mission: impossible). it's a treat!

this is being posted on friday, may 31, at 10:00 a.m.
please do not post your answers in the comments section.
answers are to be sent to me at
the first person to send in their list of the correct answers wins.
