Quiz

Postby Trompe-la-Mort » Wed Aug 17, 2011 10:37 am

A game that I particularly enjoyed in a German Discworld forum. Basically, what the name says and whoever answers a question right gets to ask the next one. Fun bit is to ask as obscure questions as you can think of (or questions that seem easy but are easy to get wrong). I'll just ask the first question to see if anybody is interested...

What is a good neighbour to misery?

Nope. Hints only after three false guesses...

Would poverty be a good neighbor to misery, by any chance?

Yes, indeed. According to a chapter title that is the case. Your turn.

Thank you. And now for a REALLY obscure question (I think)

What was (presumably) the surname of the girl who was given a sentence of hard labour for life in a case of infanticide that was decided just before "Monsieur Madeleine" arrived at the assizes to save Champmathieu?

Well, if nobody else wants it... Her name was presumably Limosin, right?

Correct! (I say presumably because, for all I know, Victor was feeling wonky when he wrote that and she was some nameless girl who had moved to the area from the Limousin region...probably not the case, but sometimes, with Monsieur Hugo, I'm just not sure.)

Your turn then!

So, an easier one in the hope that more people will join: What are the six aliases used by Thénardier at some point?

Don Alvarès, the woman Balizard, Genflot, Fabantou, Jondrette, and Thénard.

The date of the Gorbeau robbery, the 3rd of February 1832, is probably not coincidental--what major event happened in the same neighborhood, the Faubourg Saint-Jacques, on the same date? (Hint: it was relevant to Hugo's interests and obliquely mentioned in his initial description of the area.)
