And More Games!!

Ok, if you know the answer to this one, post the answer and a question of your own. Keep that going. This is fun.

A notorious site for suicide, the official suicide count ended in 1995 when the number approached 1,000. There were 34 confirmed bridge jump suicides in 2006. Currently, it is said that a person jumps off this site every 15 days.
As of 2006, only 26 people are known to have survived the jump. There is only one known person to have jumped from twice. She survived the first jump in early 1988, but died in her second attempt later that year.

And yes, I am making these harder.


  1. Golden Gate Bridge?

    My question later.

  2. OK, a really easy one and a pretty hard one (our 6-people team got both):
    An organization affiliated with MIT in January 2004 asked this question to people on the streets:
    What invention do you hate the most, but can't live without it?
    First place was cell phone (30%)
    Third place was TV (23%)
    Fourth place was shaving accessories (14%).
    Which invention, usually used no more than once a day, got a second place?

    Starting in the year 2002, due to increase in size of [something], such companies as Louis Vitton and Gucci made good profits on Italian and Finland markets. After guessing what increased its size, answer what object did these companies modify to achieve profits?

  3. Addendum to the second questions:
    "such producers of leather items as"
    instead of "such companies"

  4. Wow. I have no idea on either. hmmm. . .

    Happy Anniversary! ;)

  6. Xirax,
