This Week in iQ Trivia – 21 October 2017

Here’s what you may have missed this week at iQ Trivia.

WINNERS

If you won this week, here’s evidence just in case anyone doesn’t believe you.

JACKPOTS

These American students have been steadily improving their scores, and this week knew enough about Czech cities through a Czech classmate to win a jackpot.

And one their first visit to iQ Trivia, this group won both first place in the quiz (despite not knowing the homework question) and a jackpot by knowing about the Zika virus.

TEAM NAMES

You came up with a lot of pointlessly expensive products.

Saffron Pepper Spray

Truffle Infused Gold Flaked Caviar Tacos

Truffle Toothpaste

Golden Escalators (like the King of Saudi Arabia)

Fair Trade Ivory Handled Toothbrush

24 Carat Gold Spray Tan

24K Gold Dildos

Gold Q-Tips

Gold Loo Roll

Gold Leaf Vodka

Diamond Toothpicks

Gucci Leather Jogging Pants (which is apparently an actual product)

The NBN

Taxis

Smashed Avo

The United States Defense Budget

Rhinocerous Horn Cufflinks with WiFi

Jewel Encrusted Air Guitar

and perhaps the most extravagant of all… The Marriage Equality Plebiscite

TRIVIART

Judgemental Rib

Pretty Pi

Esoteric Tumbler

Smelly Hamburger

Horny Nation

INTERESTING MOMENTS

When they couldn’t come up with another national capital starting with W, one team wrote Moscow upside down.

When asked where in Australia the Fortescue River was, we had to remind one team that Florean Fortuescue’s Ice Cream Parlour is both fictional, and not in Australia.

One team didn’t know who the Socceroos were playing next until an ad for the next game came up on the TV.

On a jackpot question, one team guessed (we suspect facetiously) that the longest serving Prime Minister of Israel was Yassir Arafat.

When being asked to do some math and show their work, one team got every aspect of the question wrong but still managed to get the final answer right.

Someone mistook Fiddler on the Roof for The Princess Bride.

When we were listing film roles for a bonus question and looking for Steve Buscemi as an answer, two teams who hadn’t listened to the question rushed up to us with the answer Con Air.

The blokiest team in the place turned out to be the biggest fans of Meryl Streep’s performance in The Devil Wears Prada.

The biggest cheer of the week was for the team who came in last for the second consecutive week, and has become something of a specialist is choosing the last place subject.

And finally, when reading the answers we had some help with reading the names of four Chinese provincial capitals from someone whose Mandarin is considerably better than ours.

See you next week for more iQ Trivia.

Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 15 October 2017

Recently the founder of iQ Trivia happened to see this ludicrously expensive kettle in a shop clearly catering to people who have way too much money.

Is this kettle actually 10 times better than a kettle costing $23? Really? And what the hell makes it and “artisan” tea kettle?

So this week we want your team name to be an unnecessarily expensive product.

Diamond encrusted smartphone

Platinum toilet seat

Literally anything endorsed by Gwyneth Paltrow

Anything that exists solely to show people you have more money than sense will get you a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

One team didn’t know that Catalonia was the region of Spain that held a referendum on separation, but they did give us a detailed explanation of the politics of the situation and got a point anyway.

A player who has frequently mentioned his own hubris was asked a question in our lightning around, to which hubris was LITERALLY the answer.

One team guessed that John Cougar Mellancamp’s little ditty about about Jack & Diane included the line “I would really like to eat a leg of ham.”

Lee Lin Chin’s occupation was described (not incorrectly) as Head Bitch of SBS.

One team fell for our obvious lie about the coat of arms of Denmark containing salmon.

A disturbing number of teams didn’t list New York as being one of the four states within 100km of Times Square.

See you next week for more iQ Trivia.
