IWS#197 - The XXX Summer Olympics

With the Summer Olympics coming up, I figure this would be a good topic for this set of IWS questions.

*******************************************************

The Rules

The rules are the same as previous FOFC "I’m With Stupid" Contests, as set forth by the game’s widely revered and beloved founding fathers.

The object of this contest is to answer the questions posted, and to provide the most common answer among those submitted. For each question, your score will be equal to the number of people who submitted that response. Your score for the contest will be the product of your individual question scores. Yes, that word "product" means that they will be multiplied together, not added. Highest score wins.

Collaboration of any kind is strictly forbidden. No posting your answers to this board, nor sharing them by e-mail or in any other way with other potential contestants. Just don't be an asshat, and this should end well.

All determinations of "matches" and anything else requiring judgment fall to that of the sole administrator of this round of the game. You can reduce the need for doubt and judgment by properly spelling your submissions, being clear, and that sort of thing. The administrator's decisions are final and utterly inarguable, no exceptions.

Any references that are unclear to you, due to language or geography, should be understood to be authored from the perspective of an English-speaking American. However, your answers do not necessarily have to be correct in order to score points. If I ask "What was the second-best comedy of the 1980s after Cheers?" and you answer "The Cosby Show" along with 20 others, you each (shockingly) score 21 points, despite the fact that the indisputable correct answer is "Night Court."

The Questions

1. Which do you have more interest in, the Winter or Summer Olympics?

2. What country will win the 2nd most medals in this year's Summer Olympics?

3. Who will win the Silver Medal in the Men's Basketball event in this year's Summer Olympics?

4. How many gold medals will Michael Phelps win in this year's Summer Olympics?

5. Name an event that is part of the Decathlon.

6. The long jump qualifications take place on August 3rd. You have from now until then to train for the event. How far will you jump?

One quick clarification.

For question #2, I mean what country will win the second most medals.

Sorry for the confusion.

You need to do a better job of marketing this: "IF YOU DON'T ENTER IWS, I CAN'T GUARANTEE THE ABOVE WON'T HAPPEN!"

Well, I'm done pimping this thing. I've bump this thing eleventy billion times, sent a PM to every member of the board with over 2 posts. I'm tired.

If this thing ends in a 10 way tie, I can't help it my questions suck.

Yeah, i thought it was a good IWS as well. Maybe too close in time to the previous entries? I'd imagine a ton of people are on vacation as well.

We also have a couple fairly hot topic threads going on that are pulling eyes away, I'm guessing.
