Final Bonus

PM one of the following options. If more than one person chooses the same option, anyone who chose that option loses half their points.

1. Double your points.
2. Double your bonus points.
3. X1.5 both points and bonus points.
4. Triple the points in the bonus pot.

Responses by Christmas Eve please. No punches pulled from here on out.

September

2. What is the Christmas Number 1? (4)
Rockabye

3. What's so special about leap days anyway? Tell me about them. (M5)
An extra day added usually every 4 years. A complete rotation around the sun takes 365 days and approximately 6 hours, hence the need for an extra day every 4 years. On years which are dividable by 100, but not 400, and extra day is not added (don't see: 1600 or 2000).

4. How many more Electoral College Votes did Donald Trump win than Hillary Clinton?
77


5. What's the funniest thing you've heard all year? (5)

6. 2016 will be 1 second longer than normal. Why? (M5)
Because we haven't suffered enough. Also due to irregularities in the Earth's orbit. Unlike leap days, these aren't added regularly, but decided by the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service.

7. What was the best meme of the year?
Me

A Year in Search
[/b]

8. Pokemon Go was the most searched term in Google this year. Name two others. (4)
You could have had iPhone 7, Donald Trump, Prince, Powerball, David Bowie, Deadpool, Olympics, Slither.io, Suicide Sqaud

9. Name one of the most searched people this year. (3)
You could have had Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Michael Phelps, Melania Trump, Simone Biles, Bernie Sanders, Steven Avery, Celine Dion, Ryan Lochte, Tom Hiddleston

10. Wimbledon was the 4th most searched sporting event, what was number 1? (2)
The Rio Olympics

11. Which death of the year was searched most often, according to google? (3)
Prince

12. Name one of the top 10 searched movies this year. (3)
You could have had Deadpool, Suicide Squad, The Revenant, Captain America Civil War, Batman vs Superman, Doctor Strange, Finding Dory, Zootopia, The Conjuring 2, Hacksaw Ridge
