Just one.  However, if I was entering, it seems like it might be
equally likely that the contest runner would intentionally ask someone
who was -not- entering.  In fact, the four people who posted to the
original thread were equally split between entrants and non-
entrants.

Ultimately, one question might have been every-so-slightly 'unfair',
but it -is- just a game!  If anyone's enjoyment was ruined, I'll
happily refund double your entry fee!
