Whenever it’s International Women’s Day, you can be sure someone will ask why there isn’t International Men’s Day.

Well there is, and it’s this Tuesday on 19 November.

And for your team name this week, we want you to tell us the most stereotypically manly way you can think of to spend International Men’s Day.

Lift weights and work on a vintage car

Live four years less than a woman born the same year

Go to Bunnings to buy power tools I will never actually use

Shave and get drunk, because advertising assures me I’m already brilliant.

Any stereotypically manly way to spend International Men’s Day will get you a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

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

WINNERS

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

Literally everything in a Bollywood film

Slipping on a banana peel

Nobody solves crime in their spare time

INTERESTING MOMENTS

RuPaul was described as “that drag queen who features in Taylor Swift’s music video ‘You need to calm down’… which, as we confirmed, is correct.

On the other hand, one team described the discus as “that heavy frisbee thing”.

We hinted that there would be a “Butterfly” question. One team wedged “butterfly” into three answers, but not the one that actually applied to butterflies.

When looking for the most common words ending in “off”, we got a window into our teams, some of whom went with Hasslehoff, Smirnoff, and jackoff.

A new team misunderstood the gambler’s question, and thought you got an automatic five points for getting it right. NOOOOOOOOPE!

And a veteran team dropped the ball by misreading the homework question an giving us a list of Israeli Prime Ministers rather than Presidents.

See you next week.

On Wednesday we asked about the origins of the Jamaican Bobsled team.

Their best performance was in the 1994 Winter Olympics. Where did they place?

The first new player to comment on the website with two places of the correct answer wins a free drink at their next iQ Trivia show.

The Jamaican Bobsled team famously competed at the 1988 Winter Olympics.

Were the athletes in their crew Jamaican expats who had been living in Canada for many years, Jamaican sprinters cut from the Summer Olympic team, or Jamaican military personnel?

A fan theory holds that The Walking Dead is a sequel to what other TV series?

We’re dealing with films this week.

Specifically, with your team name, tell us what is always shown unrealistically in films?

Ugly people in movies are better looking than most people in real life.

Nobody ever says goodbye on the phone.

Shooting hundreds of bullets without having to reload.

When divorced couples get back together. Come on! You got divorced for a reason!

Silencers aren’t silent in real life.

Literally anything about hacking.

Anything that is wildly unrealistic about movies will get you a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

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

JACKPOTS

We nearly gave away a jackpot on a question on Austrian scientists, but someone guessed that the namesake of Mach numbers was Ernest Mach, rather than Ernst Mach. (They ever wrote down Ernst, before crossing it out and going with Ernest.)

TEAM NAMES

Most of you offered a lot of assistance to aliens looking to abduct you. Here’s what you suggested would work to get you in a trap.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

When one host came down with tonsillitis, we arranged a fill in on 60 minutes notice.

We asked for countries within 1,500km of a famous site in India, and one team forgot to say India, despite us giving fairly obvious hints.

Zooey Deschanel of New Girl was described as “the sister of that chick from Bones”, which wasn’t exactly what we were looking for, but which wasn’t actually incorrect.

Upon hearing a song by N’Sync, one team answered that it was “The Backstreet Boys” or N’Sync which are basically the same band.

The name of Thor’s hammer was given as “Ron Jeremy.

And for Melbourne Cup day, one of our shows increased the number of gambler’s questions from one to four. Australians, it seems, really like to gamble.

See you next week.
