Here’s what you may have missed this week at iQ Trivia.
If you won, here’s evidence just in case anyone doesn’t believe you.
We love when a team comes in last place at trivia, and then wins the jackpot. You see? It CAN happen! And this was a team of JUST ONE PERSON!
Superpower aren’t as useful as people think. Here’s you rationales for why.
I have X-ray vision but I keep walking into walls
X-ray vision would give everyone cancer
Flying without an airplane is cold
Superspeed: Can’t satisfy your girlfriend
I always know what’s going to happen and it’s boring
Super strength mean you’ll have to be abstinent
Super hearing would lead to tinnitus
Telekinesis: Getting hit when you daydream
The invisible man never gets noticed at the bar
Teleporting: Screw up your co-ordinates and wind up inside another person
No one wants to high five you when you have super strength
Pole Dancing Chicken
Chicken Doing Standup Comedy
A team consisting of four players, none of whom were from Australia & none of whom spoke English as their first language managed an impressive score of 59, and could have gotten more if they’d opted for points instead of beer.
We had to convince one team that Chittagong was not the second largest city in Australia. (Perhaps they thought we said Wollongong, though that would have been wrong too.)
Someone guessed that the animal used in a book to teach children the letter V, was “velociraptor.”
In a lightning round, one team of overseas visitors couldn’t think of the correct term beginning with D that was applied to Australian soldiers in WWI. All they could come up with was… dead. Which isn’t wrong for about 60,000 of them.
And one player brought a chair with them for the lightning round, as they expected to be there for a long time… only to be eliminated on the first question.
See you next week.
