Okay, Scout called South Dakota, and no one seemed impressed by my, ah, clever multi-guess earlier. So I say North Dakota. We're running out of states here, people!

Not Illinois. I grew up there and we had some real house shakers out in the flat lands. Even more next door in Missouri. There are huge faults running under the Mississippi river valley. Some the quakes have changed the course of the river. I suspect Steerpike will be tasked with the next question.

Thanks Jen. I was running out of states.

Okay…

What are the largest structures in the universe?

(edit: not that size matters)

Nope. Think bigger. Not that size matters.

How about the universe itself? Or the multiverse [Image Can Not Be Found] if yer thinking runs that direction.

Gas or dust clouds?  Hrmm - or superclusters, if you're grouping galaxies etc together?

Oh my god…  superclusters are no longer the biggest things in the universe, according to wikipedia… they've now discovered "filaments" – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G..... .  I feel so small.  And old.

And here's a nice map if ever you get lost... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F.....ents_2.gif

Exactly, Jarrod! The answer is filaments. Well, "galactic filaments," but who's counting? Well done! :)

Yours is the next question…

Wow, I should have come better prepared!

Ok, how about:

What would I be collecting if I was using a Catellite?

Too easy for a first questions?

Gregg, your avatar pic even looks like it's trying to hold your comment in!

And, uh, no...  just in case anyone thought that was a serious answer.

I'm thinking... like... something like "catalog." But what does this mean, collecting with it? Collecting catalog entries, like using an eBay or Half.com to aggregate sales options?
