    I like trivia, but somehow I got addicted to writing questions...

    Is it possible to just contribute a whole bunch of questions every week/month? I leave the discretion to whichever power-may-be to tell me if they are great or absolute crap.

    Thanks!

    The gate is very strong. It is made out of this metal?
    The answer choices were all chemical symbols for elements.

    I read about calcium-gated potassium channels all the time at work (although I have no idea what that really means).

    So I was looking for Ca as an answer and wondering whether those physiological gates would be considered "very strong" . . . compared to what?

    Took me several seconds to realize they meant the kind of gate you might find in a fence or wall.

    That kind of mixup sounds like something I'm apt to do!

    [insert boring biology explanation on Ca-K channels]

    Calcium-gated potassium channels are proteins on cell membranes. Basically, cell membranes are not permeable (usually) to the passage of ions like potassium. Thus, there are protein "channels" through which potassium can flow, but they only open in the presence of calcium to bind to them - sort of like having a keycard at a security door and it opening. Only, instead of allowing everything to pass through, the door only allows the passage of potassium.

    [end boring biology explanation ]

    All the questions come from the Fun Trivia site. I just pick the catagory. We do need to get lots more skating questions into the pool. You can join the fun trivia site and make up quizzes if you want. I've only done one, a couple of years ago. It's out of date now.

    I know! That's the one that'll fool me, so I have to read it twice which delays me by one second and then a certain someone (not mentioning any names ) beats me by that [ ] much, LOL!

    Easier catagory, but I blew it. At least I'm still alive in the Trivia Knockout Game.

    ...at least until tomorrow.

    I thought I had a lock on a top ten placement today. Already, I've slipped to #6.

    You are still in the top ten, after 30 players have played.

    Yes, I finished at #9 yesterday. The same won't be true today.

    In other news, I must protest the advantage that anyone stalking Jennifer Robinson has over sane participants in the Ice Skating Challenge game.
