INTERESTING MOMENTS

Zapp Branigan from Futurama was described as “that captain who doesn’t wear pants and has a thicc ass” which is actually a pretty apt description.

One team got penalised for cheating. And who was most annoyed at the guy who googled Hiroshima? His teammates.

One team wrote down the two options, and joked about how they would probably forget to cross one out… and then they actually forgot to cross one out.

We put on a show for some experts on Asia, and it took them an inordinate amount of time to identify Afghanistan as the answer to a bonus question. On the other hand one of their teams got a bonus point for writing an answer to a question on the Islamic calendar in Arabic.

Two teams were faced with five straight 50/50 options, and both picked the wrong one all five times. That’s a 1 in 32 of doing it once. Doing it twice? We will let the statisticians among you determine the odds.

And more than one team ruined a perfect round in the minefield bonus round by getting four right, and then losing all of those points by getting one single question wrong.

See you next week.
