"If you travel to the third rock orbiting the star, Sol, you will find a planet filled with comedians. This is their story:
The Daily Quiz Project was our last, best hope for humor
A daily quiz played once a week
A place of nonsense where the right answers don't count
It was the second decade of the 21st Century... the year The Wil Wheaton Project came upon us all
This is the story of the last of daily quizzes
The year is 2014
The name of the place is LJDQ
" - [livejournal.com profile] cholma

(+5, lyricalicious. +1 extra, Babylon 5. Nicely done. I can hear the theme song in my head right now. -CV)



And there you have it: star names, because stars are cool. Of course it's been cloudy and rainy today so I can't even see our mother star, much less any others. Ah well, easy come easy go. Thanks for playing, and tune in tomorrow for a quiz about moons! Or planets! Or black holes! Hurr hurr, black holes...

Rock On!

I'm very, very surprised that no one screamed, "LJDQ...My God! It's full of stars!" Or would that be too obvious even for this crowd?

Hey, a double -- and can I please claim one-third of the clusterquote on #3, because just like [livejournal.com profile] usmu and [livejournal.com profile] thepikey I answered "Acme 42"? (Sort of like a day-early birthday present? Pretty please?)
