Q.I is an English tv quiz show starring Stephen Fry and Alan Davis. It reveals truths about facts you think you know about the universe. This will have 2 questions per post. 1 point is awarded for a correct answer, 2 points are awarded for an interesting answer. 1 point is deducted for a boring answer :P I will be posting 20 questions (or at least i plan to).
Rounds will last for 3 days.

Q 1: What colour is the Universe?

Q 2: What would you use to overpower a crocodile? (you only have basic office supplies!)

(Q.I stands for Quite Interesting)

this quiz has a chance of making people feel small, silly and pathetic. I claim no responsibility for anythings caused by attempting this quiz :P

Prize: I will give you an option of any trophy, 1st, 2nd or 3rd, ANY pokemon. This will be totally free.

1. The universe is navy and black--the universe is Psypoke! (God that one sucked)

2. To overpower a crocodile with basic office supplies... All you need to do is... ... ... ...

Hm...the Universe is of a colour that no one knows, that exists only in the deepest darkest realm of the imagination, where evil resides, polluting all that is good...

As for killing a crocodile, I would suggest an Electacbuzz@choice band with an EV distribution of 252SA and 252Speed, with 6 into HP, because you get some people who make their crocodile learn Seismic Toss. With this moveset, you can survive 4 Seismic Tosses, and be left with roughly 3.15 HPs from a Calm Minded Psychic from Alakazam, whereas a Choice Banded Earthquake from a Jolly Dugtrio will knock you out.
But back to the Crocodile. If you can catch it on a switch in, you can set up a free sub, but if you're sending it in, watch out for Crunch; the chance of lowering special defence might induce the Crocodile to use Hydro Pump, which, if it has a Rash nature, will result in your Electabuzz going into the red zone.
I suggest the following moveset;

Thunder Punch - Watch out for the possibility of it having Reflect. If you're facing a Croc from Diamond and pearl then Croc's defense will partake in the calculation of damage because T-Punch is now physical.

Thunder Wave - Paralysis is always good. It might be able to stop Croc, what with the 25% chance of paralysis, but it might have quick attack, which would knock you out if you had a marginal amouint of HP left from the Hydro Pump you sustained after the switch in.

Substitue - If you sub down to 1 HP, you can activate a Salac berry (which is another option as opposed to C-band.) which will make Electabuzz's speed just a little better than a Jolly Ninjask and Hasty Heracross. However, Croc might switch to another member of its team, predicting a potential explosion.

Psychic/Fire Punch/Ice Punch/Dynamic Punch - Up to you really, a filler move of any of these would be good. Psychic will leave a large dent in its HP, and could also take out any Parakeets that might be on its team. Fire Punch and Ica Punch let you take advantage of Elecatbuzz's great special atatck, also allowing for a wide range of type trumping, whereby you can plausibly dismantle the opponent's team.

This universe is Milky colored.

As for A Crocodile..get a stapeler and staple it in the eye and then jab it with a ballpoint pen in the tail.

1. Okay, I'll be serious then, and prove you wrong with science. In order for something to have a colour, we must be able to see it. In order to see things, light must reflect off of it, so, since the Universe is more of a concept that a tangible body, it can have no colour, for it has no surface to reflect light.

2. You could beat it with an Electabuzz, providing you were fighting a croc with a slot for the link cable.

your 1st makes since but the 2nd, he said to use office supplies not pokemon. I thought Milky Becuase we are in the Milky way. And If any color it should be black becuase it has no light so it would be a big void of a shawdow which is black. So either wolf is right or jamejame is right.

Ah, but if you worked in a place as boring as an office, would you not make sure that one of your supplies was a gameboy? :wink:

All right, stop srguing. In 2002 after analysing the light from 200,000 galaxies by the Australian Galaxy Redshift Survey (american scientists from John Hopkins University) concluded that the universe was ________ (i'm not telling you yet:P ) But it isn't black. Or navy.

Q1: Its gotta be...a pretty sparkly rainbow! theres planets and there different colors, so there part of the universe, and stars are a pretty shade of orange and yellow, and that monkey that went into space has to be brown so its an infinite array of colors from thedarkes black to the whitest white! Its every color in the universe! YAY! (That sounded so manly!)

Q2 Dont talk about my boss that way! He might deduct from, my weekly salary just for talking to you... anyway, since I dont know how to make a bomb yet, Id find his tickle spot and tickle him until he was laughing so hard he wouldnt notice me slipping a rubber band over his mouth and stabbing him in the heart with scissors...then Id hold the scissors like a keyblade and my strong heart would summon one up for me! then I could fight heratless crocodile and nobody crocodile and finally, when it wakes up due to some nobody reviving it, Id thwack it on the head with a paper weight. Then Id quit my job.

Congrats Alkhazor! your answer to the 2nd question is correct. The key idea is slipping the rubber band over its mouth. Crocodiles have weak muscles for opening their mouths, but very strong ones for closing their mouths. 2 points! btw, swapzard, your getting closer with grey. just a little brighter...

SCORES
Alkhazor: 2

Okay, time's up! The answer to the 1st question was: baige. The universe is baige!

Questions:
Q3: What shape is the universe? (NB this is only a theory, but a well proven one.)
Q4: How many moons does the planet Earth have?
