    1 is easy if you know how to do it. (it should say f^-1) 3 isn't that hard either and 4 is guessable. No one ventured a guess at any of them. I'll give ya'll another day to think about them. They really aren't that hard.

    No matter how long I 'think about them' I don't know the answers (its not just a case of trying to remember) so I wouldn't be able to get them given your criteria of using no resources if I had forever.
    You could at least guess.
    1. Is simple Pre-calculus.
    2. Is pretty darn hard.
    3. Is a russian river that runs into the Caspian sea.
    4. Is a major american motion picture producer
    5. Even I didn't know that one before I looked it up.

    If someone knew the answers to these questions using just memory and brain they'd be able to answer within 10 minutes. It's either you know or you don't.

    I believe no one can answer all of them without googling.

    The 24 hour time period is now over. Results:
    Pig-----------4
    DrSoySauce--3
    Acaila--------2

    I'm sorry Acaila, but due to competition rules you must be eliminated.

    The next round of questions will come up shortly. The one out of Pig and DrSoySauce that gets the most will be crowned Trivia Master.
