I am back with the show notes! I first wanted to take a minute to apologize for the long delay in getting the show notes out. I have had a lot of stuff going on personally that made it difficult to get this out on a regular basis. I am going to be working hard to get back on track with these things. There are a lot of exciting things going on with Trivial Warfare now. I am just excited to be a part of this show. Enough being nice to Jonathan’s ego, let’s get to the show notes.
To begin, I was against the Santa talk conversation, but Jonathan likes to destroy little kids dreams. So because of that we discuss of when we learned Santa was not real…so sad!
Warm it Up Chris Question of the Episode
Top 10 Most Expensive Cities in the US (of over 50,000 people)
- New York, New York
- Honolulu, HI
- San Francisco, CA (hippies listening to the show are saying, “HEY!”)
- San Jose, CA
- Stamford, CN
- Washington DC
- Boston, MA
- Oakland, CA
- Los Angeles, CA
- San Diego, CA
Now that all those shenanigans are done…let’s get on to the show!
Q: What does the acronym HTTP stand for?
A: Hyper Text Transfer Protocol
Q: What battle ended in the defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte and his exile to the isle of St. Helena?
Q: According to Guinness Book of World Records, what song holds the record for most cover versions?
OK, so this question is a little off, and I think Carmela would say the same thing. I think the better phrasing of this question should have been, “what non-holiday song holds the record for most cover versions?” There are several sites that dispute this question’s answer…but the important part of this question is “according to Guinness Book of World Records”…and their answer is “Yesterday”. It does have over 2,000 recorded covers…just crazy!
So after round one, the Evil Empire known as Jonathan and Marc are up 20 to 10. But Family Matters stand resolve to come back!
Q: Valles Marineris is the name of a canyon network on what planet in our solar system?
Q: Charles Ludwig Dodgson is the real name of what famous author?
A: Lewis Carroll
This is what I love about answering questions as a team…you have the chance to discuss and figure it out. Uncle Chip knew the answer, but could not get the name…I knew the name but did not know it was associated to this question. By discussing it, we figured it out. This is what makes tag team games and pub trivia so much fun. Plus, Jonathan just ate this question for lunch. Priceless.
Q: What is the name of the peninsula that sits between the Caribbean Sea and the Bay of Campeche?
A: The Yucatan Peninsula
I hate sucking at categories…geography is one of them. Thank goodness, I had the power of Uncle Chip to get this one right. I would still be thinking of the answer if it was not for him.
Q: What is the name of the sabretooth squirrel in the movie, Ice Age?
Q: The gold anniversary is celebrated after how many years of marriage?
A: 50 Years
And yes, I hate James Bond trivia questions. I wish trivia shows would just get rid of them completely.
Q: What 90’s grunge band was originally named, Mookie Blaylock?
A: Pearl Jam
Can I just tell you how much I LOVE this question? I love, loved the album 10 in high school. The whole album is still amazing! At the end of the first half, we got a classic episode brewing here…we are all tied up at 80 to 80!
Q: The Southern Cross is a constellation that can only be seen in the Southern Hemisphere. Name four of the five countries that have them depicted the Southern Cross on their flag.
A: Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Samoa and Papua New Guinea
Q: What 12th century English monarch is known as Lionheart?
A: Richard the First
Man, Jonathan was so cocky when we answered only Richard. Did you hear how snotty he sounded? “If it is not Richard the First you are wrong…” It was so awesome. You know you chuckled when you heard it!
Q: Who threw the fastest recorded pitch in MLB history at 105.1 miles per hour?
A: Aroldis Chapman
My Uncle and his names…Bob Feller…Bob Feller!!
Q: What famous band won the 1974 Eurovision contest with the song, Waterloo?
Q: In Greek mythology what guards the gates of the Underworld?
A: Cerberus (FLUFFY!!)
Q: Who is credited for inventing both the parachute and the diving suit?
A: Leonardo Di Vinci
Is there anything that dude didn’t do or invent??
Q: In what country would you find Devil’s Peak?
A: South Africa
Yes, I had a nutty. I wrote it down and did not go with it. I cannot tell you how many times I do that. I hate myself a little bit more each time I talk myself out of an answer…sigh.
Q: McKayla Maroney is a silver medalist in what Olympic sport?
Q: Who was the founder of Mormonism? (Need first and last name)
A: Joseph Smith
Q: Donald Sutherland and Kiefer Sutherland have only been in two movies together. Max Dugan Returns and what other movie?
A: A Time to Kill
It is now three movies with the 2015 movie Forsaken. At the time of broadcast, this question was correct.
Going in to the final the score is Family Matters leads 160 to 140 over the Evil Empire! Can Jonathan and marc make a comeback?? Will Jonathan lose his second tag team game in a row?
Q: Put these elements in order of their discovery, earliest to latest. Radium, Plutonium, Nitrogen and Radon.
A: Nitrogen 1772, Radium 1898, Radon 1900 and Plutonium 1940
BOOOOOOM! Champions always bet zero!! With 160 points Family Matters (Chris and Chip) defeat the Evil Empire (Jonathan and Marc) with 115 points! Jonathan tasting the bitter pill of defeat 2 episodes in a row! But do not feel bad for him, he is still the King of Trivial Warfare.
