My wife and I play local pub trivia a few times a month. We are pretty good against the local competition. The gatherings are small. from 3 or 4 teams to maybe 10.
This thread will be for some of the questions we didn’t get right. We probably run at a 80-85% correct clip.
On what type of transportation would you find a “futtock”?
A: wooden ship
B: hot air ballon
D: steam engine
BG’s guess: stagecoach
Answer wooden ship
What is the most abundant metal in the Earth’s crust?
BG’s guess: iron
What was the first sitcom on which a toilet flush was heard?
BG’s guess: Leave It to Beaver
Answer: All In the Family
I would have gotten all of them wrong, but I really felt like it would be iron. Not 100% but I felt good about iron.
iron is #2. Nickel was also in our discussion.
Who is int he Guinness book of World Records as the author who has the most published works?
BG’s guess: Shakespeare (knew it was wrong, had to put something)
Answer: L Ron Hubbard
I got this one right but it was a guess. It sounds like something a sailor would say.
You would be correct if the question was “first sitcom to show a toilet”.
I would’ve guessed either Leonard Euler or Paul Erdős
I believe Leave It To Beaver was the first time you ever saw a toilet on TV, but I guess no one flushed it.
In the future could you please blur your answer as well so as to eliminate any answers? I want to see if I would make the same mistake that you did.
Could you number them as well?
I knew the toilet-flushing one.
Could you give prizes out to those of us who guess the correct answer as well?
Well . . . BG thinks he a prize. You want him to . . . give out?
He’s mentioned his oral skills with the ladies.
This is a travel related question, so I understand why you found it difficult.
Only one lady gets that benefit now.
So . . . you’re talking to only one lady?
you’re only talking to one lady?
only you’re talking to one lady?
you’re talking to one lady only?
