This is week 2 of the Movie Trivia Contest, so to recap, here are the rules:
I will ask 2 questions about a movie each Saturday. Correct answers will be worth 10 points each. Then there will be a bonus question worth 5 points. You have the potential for 25 points each week, with a possible 100 points total by the end of July.
One week this month, I will announce in advance the movie I'm going to watch, so those of you who find you're older than or younger than or have different tastes from the movies I watch, will have a chance just like everyone else.
As always, it's the honor system! You may watch the movie, or you may ask someone else who's seen the movie, but you can't research the answer on the internet.
So that everyone has a fair chance, please email your answers to me instead of using the comments section to answer the questions. I will post my email address at the end of the post each week.
The person with the most points will receive one of three prizes:
1. Coffee-lover's Package
2. Quilter's Package
3. Gardener's Package
This week's movie is an action thriller from 2000, Vertical Limit, starring Chris O'Donnell (yumm!), Robin Tunney, Scott Glenn and Bill Paxton.
1. Injectable Dexamethasone was the drug carried to combat what potentially lethal condition affecting stranded mountain climbers?
2. What was Montgomery Wick so obsessed with finding on his multiple trips up the mountain?
Bonus question: Dropping the cannister of nitroglycerin was the cause for one explosion on the mountainside, and another was set deliberately. What else caused some nitro to explode?
So that no one has an unfair advantage, please email your answers to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
