4/16 Free Answer

Mountaineer George Mallory famously replied to the question of why he would want to climb mount Everest by saying "because it's there".  A trivia player, (who I won't name) was once asked why they play trivia on Wednesdays, and their reply was "Because it's fun".  Whether you do things because they are fun, or because they simply exist, I think you should come out to trivia tonight, because it is fun, and it is there.

Here is a Free Answer for 4/16: "Nutella"

4/2 Free Answer

Try to think back in your life to a time when you invented a new sound.  Something that no one else had ever produced before you, and when you or anyone heard it, it was at first totally unfamiliar.  I bet you haven't done that.  I don't think I have, which makes me wonder who invented all these sounds in our languages. It's kind of the same thing with ideas and facts.  Brand new, never before thought of ideas or totally new discoveries are incredibly rare.  Luckily, we don't demand that you come up with any of these things at trivia night, we just want to know if you recall hearing about all that stuff that's already out there.

So anyhow, here is a Free Answer for Wednesday: "Panda"

Go forth and find your teammates now, tell them to gather with you this evening and commence having fun.  Who knows, maybe you'll invent something brand new while you're there...

3/26 Free Answer

Most of what we "know" is little more than something someone else told us that we decided to believe.  Sure some of us do some cursory mental tests to make sure it's not obviously untrue, but as long as it's backed up by enough people, we are inclined to believe it.  Just food for thought.  If your head is jammed up with all sorts of stuff you heard and read somewhere, maybe come out and play a little trivia with the knowledge.

Here is a Free Answer for Wednesday 3/26: "Tobacco"

And here is another fact for you: trivia is better with friends.  I encourage you to test this one out if you don't believe me.

3/12 Trivia Canceled

Sorry folks, I was hoping the weather wouldn't be as severe as was predicted, but there is a "no unnecessary travel" advisory in Onondaga county and the roads are in terrible shape so we are going to have to cancel this week. Hope to see you out next week!!!

3/12 Free Answer

First of all, I want to address the weather:  Weather, you are doing what you do, and I respect that.  If you make us cancel trivia nights though, well then, you owe us some extra nice days later.  Thanks, the STC.
Now I want to address trivia players: We are tentatively going to be doing trivia tonight, but there is a good chance that it will get canceled so please check in here one hour before trivia starts to make sure all systems are go.

Alright, here is the Free Answer for Wednesday 3/12: "Petunia"

Spread the good word!

3/5 Free Answer!

If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning, I'd hammer in the evening, and I'd hammer at trivia night.  Why?  Because it's a hammer of justice, it's a hammer of freedom and it's a hammer of winning.  I hope you have a hammer.

Here is a Free Answer for Wednesday: "Lulu"

Come play with your friends, I mean, why else would you have a trivia hammer?
