The Sirius Contest - The Questions

In the following post you will see 10 questions. These questions can be found on this radiostation's website or through a link that is on here, Except the Shootout Question. This question is used when more members have the same number of questions correct. The first two closest to the correct answer are the winners. You need to answer the shootout question with a number. If the difference between the two are the same only one is below the number and one is over the number, the one below the number wins. If they are the same (both below, or both over) The winner will be picked by randomly selection. This is also the case if we have more than 2 winners after the above rules were applied (three or more same below or over the guessed number)

You must send the answers to me by Private Message before Saturday 4 february 2012 11:59 PM (Server time)

Only SiriusCreations is excluded from this contest. And if you have multiple accounts, you can use only one.
The winner of the Amazon Gift Certificate can choose from which Amazon they want the Gift Certificate (the $15 will be exchanged with the current rate on the day it is send to)
If the winner of the VIP already has a VIP it will be added to the existing VIP. Non VIP may choose a startdate in February 2012.

If there are any questions about the contest (maybe something is not clear) post it here and I will answer them. I will check this thread at least once a day.

OK I gave away the prizes yesterday. Although well deserved, I hope next time there will be more competition. I do not think this Contest was that hard (Maybe the Cover question), but they could have send in the other 9 answers

And the winners also received the award (see profile "Awards/Special Designations" or in every forum post under the Avatar
