Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 20 January 2019

Imagine you’ve died & gone to hell.

And it turns out that the devil has created a personal hell just for you.

For a bonus point this week, tell us what happens there.

Being trapped in a room with someone eating potato chips loudly.

Everything you say or do offends someone.

The only thing you ever have to drink is room temperature beer, but you can never get drunk.

There’s always someone silently looking over your shoulder while you’re on the internet.

Anything that describes your personal hell will get you a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

Most of our players, it would seem, are worse at mathematics than primary school students in China, as a simple math problem given to Chinese pre-teens caused immense difficulty & frustration.

The blokiest team in one venue were thrilled that we asked a question on Gilmore Girls.

We asked if Bob Marley & Hitler were ever alive at the same time, and one team said yes, because there is no evidence that Hitler is dead. They were right, though not for the right reason.

When we asked people about the relative speed between a cricket delivery & Usain Bolt, an entire room full of trivia players spontaneously transformer into Stephen Hawking doing advanced calculus.

And a team of Doctor Who nerds will not soon live down failing to recognise David Tennant.

See you next week.

Specifically, we want your team name to be something you are a snob about.

If you use margarine instead of butter you are a filthy peasant.

You shouldn’t be allowed to vote if you can’t pass a test on civics.

Cask wine has no business being called wine.

If you can’t change a tire, don’t drive a car.

Everyone is a snob about something. Tell us what you’re a snob about for a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

These guys argued for 20 minutes about who was to blame for their tragic loss. The consensus was it was the guy on the right.

We asked a bonus question on a mathematical problem which required a fair amount of calculation, and one team got it within a couple of seconds, leading us to conclude that they are either a mathematical savant like in Rain Man, or they had heard this question somewhere before. (Or they were very lucky.)

One of our regulars who rarely plays but always enjoys listening to the questions, sold his expertise on Australian music from the 80’s to a team of Swedes who were all born in the 90s.

One team developed the tactic of saying wrong answers loud enough for neighbouring teams to hear… before calling out a correct answer… which nobody used. Not even them.

We were asked if Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter series counted as human.

And a visiting Harvard graduate got a question on Harvard wrong… and may never live it down.

See you next week.
