    Oh, my.

    I hadn’t even noticed – looks like my subtitle has been modified.

    I don’t think I succeeded at making this round too challenging – the guessers here are sharper than I expected.

    is it an airplane?

    #937468

    1) Does it have any mechanical/electronic components? Yes.

    0) Is it used for recreational (vs. utilitarian) purposes? This question can’t really be answered. Either “Yes” or “No” would be misleading.

    2) Is it bigger than a breadbox? Yes.

    3) Do most people have it in their home? No.

    4) Is it a building or some other object which people find themselves inside? (e.g. boat, plane, etc.) Yes.

    5) can it hold 500+ people? Yes.

    6) Is it designed to be mobile? Yes.

    7) is it an airplane? No.

    Question 0 really comes into play here…can’t be just a cruise ship, because that would be recreational. Can’t be just a military ship/submarine, because that would be utilitarian.

    Is it a ship?

    Well excuse me if my knowledge of the subject is derived from Disney cartoons. ^_^

    Uh…so it’s a specific steamboat, I guess…is it known for its role in military combat?

    Members of the Jury:

    Shall this round continue, or is requiring additional info a violation of “20 questions” protocol?

    You decide.

    I’ll abide.

    Corny Rhyme Alert

    (spoiler, too)

    Perhaps I should panic

    Oh, what shall I do?

    Veis mir, in Germanic

    Did I play this game wrong,

    Trigger tempers, volcanic

    Drag it on for too long

    My secret object, oceanic

    Has my tone been too gruff?

    Has this round been too manic?

    Maybe my profession

    Should be auto mechanic

    And now, the confession

    #937481

    Is it one of the following?

    R.M.S. Titanic – White Star Line. This 1912 Luxury Ocean Liner is the runaway winner.

    R.M.S. Carpathia – Cunard Line. Rescue ship of the Titanic has made collectibles for this steamship both rare and pricey.

    R.M.S. Berengaria – Cunard Line

    R.M.S. Leviathan – United States Lines

    R.M.S. Queen Elizabeth – Cunard Line

    R.M.S. Queen Mary – Cunard Line

    S.S. Deutschland – Hamburg-American Line

    S.S. Bremen – North German Lloyd

    R.M.S. Aquitania – Cunard Line

    We’ll see if we get it; otherwise we may decide it was too difficult in retrospect…

    #937482

    frummy in the tummy-

    Congrats, you got it!

    The Titanic it is (or was).

    ================================

    Other object I was considering were “a spark plug” and “Mars” (the planet, not the candy ?).

    Next turn, I may pick something easier, such as “the K shell of a hydrogen atom in Syrius’s core”. Or not.

    I dunno…the only ones I know of are from AP History circa the Civil War.

    …unless it’s the Titanic, like fitt said (gosh, didn’t even think of that :S).

    #937484

    “Syrius”???!!! Seriously???

    Oy.

    Sirius

    Haha, I didn’t think of Titanic either! I just googled “famous steamships” and pasted the first top 10 list that I found!

    ICOT – You technically didn’t have to give us the answer at that point; I was just hoping for a ‘yes’ so we could guarantee getting the answer within 4 questions.

    SaysMe – You’ve been silent for too long! Wanna take the next one?

    The only Civil War-era ships I can think of are the Merimac, Monitor, Cumberland and Sultana. I’m sure there are some other famous ones, but that’s it for me.

    SaysMe

    To quote the lottery ad, “You gotta be in it to win it!”

    Why don’t you take a turn and host the next one?

    frummy in the tummy

    I pretty much gave it away in the post immediately before yours. (Your post followed mine immediately, so I realize you got the answer without my hint.) That, together with the fact that you had named it but just needed to eliminate the “extras”, was good enough to give you the win.
