1). USS Seawolf (SS-197) No. Seawolf was lost in action. No record exists of her recovery and re-use by the japanese.

I will release one hint at 1200 hours, CST , June 2, 2004, if no one has found the answers by then. The payment will then drop to 25 milbucks.

I did mention this was odd military trivia, didnt I?

Well if the Japs had used it, you wouldnt want anyone else to now about it. Now would you?

good point. In which case, the Seawolf wouldnt be the answer, because I would have never found it.

However, this ship was found. It did exist. Try thinking outside the box on this one.

like I said: 1200 hours CST, a hint will go up, and the payment comes down.

My Apologies. This Trivia session is late, but please bear with me. Due to the lateness, the 50 Milbuck payoff will be stretched to Thursday, 10 June 2004.

For 50 Milbucks, Here is the question. It is in five parts. You must answer all five questions to claim the Milbucks.

Question Scenario. It is Sunday, in the Hawaiian Islands. Suddenly, the event happens. Six ships are sunk. Many more are damaged. Hundreds of people are killed, or wounded.

1. Where is the event? (I need the exact location).

2. When did it happen (The exact date, month and year)?

3. Who did it? (Who perpetrated this evil deed?)

4. What sank the ships?

5. Why did it happen? (Ultimate cause only)

Remember that this is odd wartime trivia. Good luck.
