How Did You Know? - {Day 1}

David K. Israel

We're back with another 5-day trivia hunt!

To remind you of the rules: Every day this week, I'll be presenting a specific challenge. Your job: come up with the answers and hold onto them! Why? Because on Friday, you'll need them to solve a short puzzle. The first person to email in the correct answers and successfully show how you arrived at them (thus the title: How Did You Know?) wins a choice of any t-shirt and book from our store.

As with previous How Did You Know? posts, comments have been turned off, but I definitely encourage you to work in teams. Last month's winner was the team of Bill Pearson and Adam Constable, who I know benefitted greatly from e-mailing each other throughout the week. So write your friends, send around each daily challenge, conspire, work together, whatever it takes to make sure you're armed with the right answers going into Friday's puzzle.

Today, we're playing Name That Tune. The following pages each have a drop-the-needle soundbite on 'em. So make sure you click through all the pages. Also, this month, I've added a new element to the hunt, a scavenger-style clue to help you with the following day's challenge. Be sure to see the very last page for the clue. Lastly: if the soundbites sound odd, that's intentional. (say what????)

Because comments have been disabled, if you have any questions or concerns, go ahead and write us at:
