This Week in iQ Trivia – 15 July 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 four were able to accurately estimate the number of time the word “Barbie” is said in the song Barbie Girl, and it won them cash.

And these guys missed out on the jackpot by misspelling “Kabuki” last week, but won it this week for knowing about the half life of Carbon 14. They also came first in the main quiz.

TEAM NAMES

If I had a dollar for every time someone made a Jerry Maguire Reference, I’d show them the money.

If I had a dollar for every time we had to come up with a trivia team name I could afford to pay someone to come up with our team name.

If I had a dollar for every time Joe mispronounced a foreign word I’d buy Trump Tower.

If I had a dollar for every time someone cut me off in traffic, I’d have enough money for therapy.

If I had a dollar for every time someone recognised me from Tinder.

If I had a dollar for every trivia question I got wrong I wouldn’t care about losing at trivia.

If I had a dollar for every time I forgot my wallet, I’d be able to afford a back up wallet.

If I had a dollar I’d have a dollar.

If I had a dollar for every time I got a dollar, I would have infinite money.

If I had a dollar I’d have 60 Euro cents.

If I had a dollar for every point that this team name gets me I’d have $1.

If I had a dollar for every time the Quizmaster pressured me to have a team name tonight I’d had one dollar.

If I had a dollar for every time I saw a house under construction in Sydney, I still couldn’t afford a house in Sydney.

INTERESTING ANSWERS

Not answering “Russia” when asked about countries with the most Russian speakers.

The team who illustrated all of their answers.

The only team made up entirely of men being the only ones to get a bonus question about tampons.

And finally…

At one point we asked to the nearest million, how many people in Australia had both parents born in Australia according to the latest Census.

The answer, for anyone who cares, is 11 million.

One guy got very agitated, because, as he put it, if there are 11 million people with two parents born in Australia, that means 22 million parents, which adds up to 33 million people, and that’s more than the population of Australia.

We tried explaining it to him. You know, explaining how logic and numbers work, but we gave up. His friends tried explaining it too, but nobody could seem to convince him.

See you next week for more iQ Trivia.
