2. What is the name of this Japanese volcano?

4. This mountain is also the highest on its continent. What is its name?



5. This mountain is the highest in the Southern Hemisphere. What is its name?

1. The Matterhorn
2. Mt. Fuji
3. Denali, or Mt. McKinley
4. Kilamanjaro? I can't even spell it.
5. I think this one is in the Andes, and I think I read about it during my Spanish studies this past Fall. However, I can't dredge up its name (post-40 brain cell loss).
6. Is this in Antarctica? I don't know the name of any of those mountains. How about Mt Ross. Or Mt Peary.

Making the MQLVII E.P. winners d, karma, Sandy, and especially 6/5 winners Kadonkadonk and Chance.

Chance is tied for second on the all-time MQ roster now; KarmaSartre is in sixth but threatening the tie for fourth; d is in seventh. It's Sandy's second E.P., and the very first for Kadonkadonk, the 50th human to win a MQEP!

There was a M5K quiz in my dream last night.

All I remember about it is that, even in my dreams, it was too hard.

That was kind of a soul-crushing moment in my life.

@Ms. Saved: I am torn between the flattery and the guilt.

Once again, I'd like to thank the casting crew at Jeopardy for my newfound "tall mountain" knowledge.
