Straightdope Jeopardy IV

So I decided to make a game really fast so I could run it today.

This will be the fourth game I’ve made and run on here.
The rules are simple. Standard Jeopardy rules apply.

For those that don’t know Jeopardy rules, here’s a quick rundown. Please read them so you understand how to play:

You pick a category and the dollar amount. Based on the dollar amout is the basis for the answer’s toughness. Higher dollars obviously have tougher answers.
If you get it right, you get that dollar amount. If you get it wrong, you lose that much. And yes, you CAN go into negatives.
Oh yeah, and you must answer with a question of course.

Easy peasy, right?

Now, online and on this message board, of course things will go a bit different, so here’s the lowdown on how this will be played:

-Anyone can play that wants to. When someone picks a category and an amount, ANYONE can then answer it if they know it.

-Your answer MUST be in the form of a question. If you do not do this, I’ll ignore your answer and it won’t count. Example: If the answer is "This has whiskers, purrs and goes “meow”, your reply would be “What is a cat?”

-The first person with the question gets it. Sorry, but that’s how it has to go on this message board because replies come so fast. So you have to be fast in your replies in this. I will only take the first person who replies with the correct one. I usually just stay in this topic and keep refreshing it and suggest you do the same if you want to be first with an answer.

-The person who gets the question right will be able to choose the next catagory and dollar amount.

-If you answer wrong but someone else already answered it wrong before you, points will NOT be taken off you, however you may not answer or guess again.

-If you don’t know the answer for sure, guessing is fine however guess at your own risk.

  • This is only the first round. Regular Jeopardy. Double Jeopardy will follow.
  • I made up the questions BEFOREHAND. Not making them up as I go along. I grouped them in each category from what I thought was the easiest to the hardest depending on the dollar amount.

So, let’s get started, shall we? The categories for the first round are:
