FNGD Starter Question Friday Feb 1, 2008

#1 Post by etaoin22 » Fri Feb 01, 2008 9:33 pm

i will put starter separately, like an "amuse-bouche",hopefully an "amuse-tete"

Place in chronological order from earliest onwards, these events of January 1967:

1 - Apollo test disaster
2 - Beginning of Canada's Centennial Year
3 - Opening of the new American Congress
4 - Super Bowl

And, what are the numerals associated with the Apollo mission, the Super Bowl and the Congress?

Well, rats. I was still playing around in the PTP thread.

4123

I'll guess 95 for Congress and VII for Super Bowl.

I am not sure about spoilers...

But the sequence here

Centennial year began on jan 1. No hocus-pocus there.
The new Congress is Jan 3.

And its numerical designation...

the 90'th Congress. (40 years later is the 110'th, last yer and this year)

Apollo I and Super Bowl I
The Super Bowl did better, and first. Jan 15 and Jan 27

Hmmn. I didn't read far enough into the question to know I was supposed to supply numerals. (Not that it would have mattered to the score.)

If the rest of my answers are as accurate as the Starter, I may just let herjosie take over for me.

I think it was Apollo 1.

No idea on the congress part
