Welcome back to Trivial Warfare show notes for the 40th episode! This is so exciting to think that we have done 40 episodes of this show so far. I will be honest, back when Jonathan talked about creating this show over a year ago, I did not think we would make it to 20 episodes, let alone 30, and here we are at 40. This is really exciting and we are just so blessed to have all of you listen and read for 40 episodes. So I personally want to thank all of you for listening to us. You guys are the best.
Here is Urban Dictionary’s definition for slumpbuster in case you wanted to know…
So let’s run as far away from slumpbusters as we can and get in to the show notes!

Identify the 1987 movie by the following story line, “A high school gym teacher has big plans for the summer, but is forced to miss them to teach an English class filled with a bunch of misfits”?
Cannot believe Jonathan got this one. It is so amazing how many of these questions he can piece together to get the answer…just impressing. This is why I love playing pub trivia with him
After 4 rounds, Jonathan is in the lead 80 to 75.
Sitting on the border of Bolivia and Peru, what is South America’s largest lake by volume?

What is the first US city to host the Olympics?
According to History.com, “After considering Philadelphia and New York, the fledgling International Olympic Committee originally awarded the 1904 Summer Games to the city of Chicago. Shortly after making their announcement, the Committee ran into a problem in the form of St. Louis, which was already planning to host a World’s Fair called the Louisiana Purchase Exposition that same summer. The Exposition’s well-funded organizers were desperate to host the Olympics as well, and to force the IOC’s hand, they worked to secure a deal with the Amateur Athletic Union to hold the 1904 track and field championships as part of the World’s Fair. Faced with the possibility of conflicting athletic competitions, Olympics founder Pierre de Coubertin reluctantly abandoned plans for Chicago and moved the 1904 games to St. Louis. Apparently no great fan of the ‘Gateway to the West,’ Coubertin neglected to attend the games and later wrote, ‘I had a sort of presentiment that the Olympiad would match the mediocrity of the town.’”
Jonathan became so close to getting this right. I was so shocked. He knew the story….but just could not get it done. But still after me missing all three Round 6 questions, Jonathan took a commanding lead 110 to 95. Not good going in to the final question to break the streak. Not good at all…
1970’s Best Picture Oscar Winners
The Godfather 2 – 1974
One Flew over the Coo-Coo’s Nest – 1975
Annie Hall – 1977
The Deer Hunter – 1978
So once again Jonathan continues the most impressive streak in trivia and wins 110 to 45. So yes, we all knows what that means, sigh…it is another win for Jonathan. Ugh!!
Yes, I was being juvenile and doing fart noises while Jonathan was doing his victory lap. It is so brutal. But to credit Jonathan, his past 7 episodes or so he has been killing it. So well done Jonathan!
