Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 10 December 2017

Last week a Twitter user challenged the internet to “Name a bitch badder than Taylor Swift.”

And the internet responded.

This week we want you do do the same.

If your team name makes reference to a woman badder than Taylor Swift, you will get a bonus point.

It can be someone you know, it can be someone from history, it can be someone famous or someone obscure. But if your team name refers to someone badder than Tay Tay, you will get a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

This Week in iQ Trivia – 9 December 2017

WINNERS

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

JACKPOTS

Once in a rare while your knowledge of south western English geography turns into cash like it did for this team. (Now you can put the jackpot towards your next holiday in Cornwall.)

These two came in last place in the quiz, but won the jackpot on a random guess. (Then they put $10 of their winnings into the pokies and turned it into $40.)

TEAM NAMES

Here are some of the things you thought should prevent you from sitting in Parliament.

Not knowing the words to Khe Sanh

If you don’t eat Vegemite on toast

Wanting to make a difference

Not knowing how to make fairy bread

Declining a Bunning’s snag

Not being part of at least one expenses scandal per year

Being Tony Abbott

No Poofters (said ironically by a team composed primarily of gay men)

Being unable to walk backwards in thongs

Not pretending you care about the Ashes

Questioning Shaun Marsh’s test selection

Saying “throw a shrimp on the barbie”

Wearing socks with thongs

Unless you can down a VB in under 3 seconds (so basically nobody but Bob Hawke)

If you use a knife and fork to eat a meat pie

TRIVIART

Fabulous Giraffe

Silky Blender

Ostentatious Snowman

Polyamorous Chair

Swinging Socks

Flying Beard

INTERESTING MOMENTS

When asked for a term beginning the the letter R that describes an old star that had used up all of it’s hydrogen, one team went with “rooted”, which is not technically wrong, and got a point.

Someone thought the first convict from the First Fleet to be emancipated was emancipated in the 1990s rather than the 1790s, perhaps assuming that he was a vampire or a Highlander.

We asked about the number of actors who played the role of Pi in Life of Pi, and two teams guessed 3.14159.

As a reminder that looks can be deceiving, a conservative looking middle aged woman turned out to be a fan of Insane Clown Posse.

See you next week.

Interesting Question of the Day – 6 December 2017

When driving down a motorway, Dennis the Driver hits the brakes suddenly before accelerating and continuing on his way.  The driver behind him also slows down, as does the driver behind him and so on.

How fast does this phantom traffic jam move backwards down the motorway?

What do they make?

Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 3 December 2017

A lot of politicians have been brought down by Section 44 of the Constitution, and there has been talk of changing the constitution to remove the restrictions preventing dual citizens from sitting in Parliament.

We like to be helpful, so this week for your team name we want you to come up with something new to put into Section 44. Instead of being a citizen of a foreign country or having a criminal conviction or being bankrupt, what else should keep you out of Parliament?

Charging extra for tomato sauce on a pie

Owning more than one investment property

Not remembering Don Bradman’s batting average

Using the term “un-Australian” more than once a month

Anything that you think should stop someone from sitting in Parliament will get you a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

This Week in iQ Trivia – 2 December 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

When one person on your team is an expert on US Presidents, and another is a medical student, you’re likely to win a jackpot when the questions are on US Presidents and medication.

They managed to win first place, and because the only other team that knew the answer opted not to play, these guys also won the jackpot.

TEAM NAMES

There were plenty of inappropriate quotation marks.

I “don’t” have syphilis

Medical” marijuana for my “glaucoma”

I’m “not” a duel citizen

You’re “adopted”

Extra points will be given for particularly “interesting” answers

The “cool” kids

We’ll “take care” of you

She said “no”

Urinal cakes are not for “consumption”

Used mattress “gently soiled”

Netflix and “Chill”

Obama “wiretapped” my phone

We “love” iQ Trivia

Remedial Thai “massage”

TRIVIART

Indecisive Bridge

Dirty Platypus

Scrumptious Platypus (or was it Scrum Chess Platypus)

Punchy Lamp

Fancy Fire Truck

INTERESTING MOMENTS

We were asked to define the word “word”. By a linguistics student no less.

We asked what states Washington DC lies between, and one team answered New York and Florida. It doesn’t border either of those states, but it does technically lie between them. In this case, being technically correct got a point.

One (rather drunk) trivia interloper, perhaps unaware that a written quiz was being conducted, was about to say the answer to a question out loud, and every team who knew the answer simultaneously shouted her down.

When asked for a 10 letter synonym for thief that didn’t use any letters twice, one team came up with “kleptomani”. That’ll teach us for not saying it had to be an actual word in English.

See you next week.
