MCF's Perilous! V Questions

Wow! I can't believe there have already been five editions of MCF's Perilous!, can you? I provided 20 answers for which my readers had to come up with the corresponding questions and post them on their blogs. Scoring was as follows:

1 pt=each question
2 pts=each question that matches MCF's
-1 pt=any sentences not in question form, or forgetting a question mark
15 pts=Bonus for the Best Question

This was a special week indeed, for once these totals are tallied, one of you will be a WINNER! I don't mean in the sarcastic sense that people might refer to me as a “winner”, either. Next week, we'll start fresh with a clean scorecard and the first of another five rounds, so tell your friends it's a great time to join in!
