    Hey, I decided to start a general knowledge quizz. The questions are going to be about as many different subjects as possible.

    Here's how it works

    You post your answers in this topic. If 5 people tried to answer and no-one has the right answer, I give a clue. However, the more clues I give the less points a good answer is worth.

    Points

    Without a clue : 50 points
    1 clue : 40 points
    2 clues : 30 points
    3 clues : 20 points
    4 clues : 10 points
    5 clues : Hey, no one got it? That was maybe too hard...

    Rules

    1 - You can't try two answers in a row.
    2 - Anyone can participate.
    3 - That's all :D .

    Points will be updated after every question here. Good luck!

    1st - Will : 1070 pts
    2nd - Mark : 905 pts
    3rd - EastCoastPunk : 725 pts
    4th - Chris : 605 pts
    5th - Omar A : 440 pts
    6th - Amy : 200 pts
    7th - LornVourkolakas : 145 pts
    7th - Tim : 125 pts
    9th - Hana : 100 pts
    10th - Aaron : 50 pts

    The Wright Brothers flew the first aeroplane in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, on December 17th, 1903. They were born in Dayton, Ohio, and the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is home to the museum which houses the first plane that was flown.

    Edit: I didn't even look that up. :lol:

    OK, this one's gonna be harder :D .

    Few time after WW2, the NATO was formed, a mutual-assistance treaty between Allied countries. However, the USSR, excluded of this treaty, "replied" with a military alliance between the European communist countries. What is the name of that pact?
