Welcome to the FOM Virtual Scavenger Hunt

While the port is full of Aloha threads and declarations of intent, it is also a place filled with tiki talk and various ja/tf/dfb. I thought it might be fun to see who can find some of those gems.

We'll be offering tiki pendant necklaces from LuRu/Tortuga Tile Works, to the first 5 tourists/initiates and to the first 5 fellows to send complete correct answers to the following 20 questions to me via pm. All questions can be answered by searching threads in the port. If I don't get 5 completely correct answers from each division by December 25, 2021, the prizes will go to entries with the most correct or amusing answers. I'll cover the shipping in the US, and probably Canada.

I don't recommend bumping the threads with the answers until after the contest, but I can't control it. C'est la vie. Will other threads get bumped in the process, maybe?

Feel free to beg for hints here.

And now for the questions:

1. In June 2016 one of the tikis in Lake George was seen wearing something unique, what was it?

2. What fellow was caught time traveling in a photo from 1907

3. What was the name of the tiki themed art show in Florida that featured work by fellows DeTiki and LuRu?

4. What is the name of the thread that honors a particular time of day dedicated to imbibing after work?

5. We talk about rum in probably every forum and sub-forum on this bulletin board service, but one thread covers it in the most depth with tasting notes on individual rums, recommendations for what rhums to use in what cocktails, and all things ron. What is the name of that thread?

6. & 7. There are at least 2 threads where the main topic was travel bars, but were both quickly hijacked into tangents. One delved into planning a competition that got so complex no one ever competed. The other into all things flair. What are the names of these threads?

8. & 9. There are at least 2 threads where the main topic was travel bars, but were both quickly hijacked into tangents. One delved into planning a competition that got so complex no one ever competed. The other into all things flair. What are the names of these threads?

10. One of our own shared a series of youtube videos conducting an orchestra playing tribute to 40 years of music from what composer?

11. The FOM helped this fellow get over her fear of karaoke as revealed in a thread where she shared a video of her singing an awesome song. Who is that fellow?

12. The Moai are always looking to help each other out. In this thread, a fellow asks for help obtaining an elusive ingredient, and not only scores said ingredient, but also a variety of recipes were found or developed to help him make his own. What was he looking for?

13. On page 4 of this thread dedicated to one of the 2 most talked about salty meats in the FOM, there is a photo of a vending machine that dispenses this heavenly treat. Name the thread?

14. In a thread about certain doom to come, Turbogod reveals what he lost out on in a family holiday gift exchange. What was it?

15. What fellow shared photos of himself riding a subway without any pants?

16. What fellow has the FOM Kahiki Fireplace logo tattooed on his arm?

17. Who posed the diabolical sophie's choice of a question, "if you could only drink one cocktail for the rest of your life, what would it be?"

18. What thread laments the fate of the Mai Tai in non-tiki bars and includes a copy of Joe Bob Briggs treatise on the subject?

19. Tis the season, find a thread with Thanksgiving, Christmas, and or New Years cocktail recipes. There are probably multiple correct answers.

20. Who defined the opposite of New Year's Resolutions as guilty pleasures?

21. What thread features quotes from the likes of Sir Winston Churchill, Homer J. Simpson, Benjamin Franklin, Tom Waits, and Frank Sinatra among others?

22. In what thread does one of the FOM's resident artists ask for help on a design that was quite "titilating?"

What about the alternative reality and parallel FOM Universe answers? Those can go here, right?

Well, you didn't need any hints did you. Congratulations Morty Lassus for being the first to submit all correct answers! Still plenty of time and plenty of prizes to be won.
