In this game there will be 3 stages consisting of 10 misc. trivia questions from video games, websites, cartoons, comics, tv shows, etc.  The first person to answer one of my trivia question gets the points for that question.

(I will be out of town for the last week of June so the game may have to be put on hold if I can't get to a computer.)

Stage 1 - Easy - 10 points per question. (100 pts)
Stage 2 - Med. - 20 points per question. (200 pts)
Stage 3 - Hard - 30 points per question. (300 pts)

Bonus points may also be given for extra information regarding a question or topic.  The bonus points will be made up as we go along like in "Whose Line is it Anyway".

The winner gets.. well.. uh... the knowledge of know he/she completed the game with the most points.  So, even though I keep points, the points are essentially pointless.

Stage 1, Question 1:

"Hey, Do you have a canoe I can borrow. Please."  From what website did that quote originally come from?
“Evolution has shaped us with perceptions that allow us to survive. But part of that involves hiding from us the stuff we don’t need to know."

You guys are right.  I will give a hint: Super Fly.

 Bam; http://www.uni-leipzig.de/~wehn/anima/guide/portale/joecart/

 Search for Canoe, and you've got it. While I hightly doubt that is the page you were looking for, it has it none-the-less. ;D

You are on the right track.  Just look a little closer.

By the way, the quote is not 'written' on the original page.

 Ah, it seems that wasn't what you were looking for.

 Well, I would assume then that, http://www.joecartoon.com/ is what you want, as it says that very same quote as you move your curser over the sections.

 Hm, I really wish I didn't watch those two Super Fly cartoons before I actually noticed that the quote was exactly what it was said. I truely do want those 4 minutes back.

(10 points for a stage one question, plus 4 bonus points for his wasted 4 minutes and explaining how the qoute was on the site.)

I prefer the original Frog Blender and Gerbal Microwave, but moving on...

Stage 1 Question 2:
 What is Homer Simpsons middle name?
