FlogYoBlog Friday: The Trivia Edition

Hey hey, Flogsters!

I am going to embrace my inner nerd today and tell you about a secret fetish I have... Quiz Nights.

I love them so much I would go so far as to say I heart them.

I am very experienced when it comes to Quiz Nights and have even been on the winning team a few times. If I don't place, I get annoyed and wish I'd worn the tshirt I had when I was little that said "If I can't win, I don't want to play". Then I give evils to my team mates for not paying attention... at which point they ask how many real questions I got right and not just stupid stuff you learn in NW. But that's not the point.

For your enjoyment I've put together some of the answers to the most common Quiz Night questions that will guarantee* you a placing should you commit them to memory. You're welcome.
  1. The Sea of Tranquility is on the moon
  2. The science of kissing is called philematology (wish I'd known that at school, I could have said I was studying hehe)
  3. The highest number of surviving children from a single birth is eight - remember Octomom?
  4. If you're in a cold, dark house with one match and are shown a candle and stove and asked which do you light first, it's the match. 
  5. Aphrodite, the goddess of sexy time, emerged from the foaming semen of her father’s castrated testicles (most fucked up birth story ever)
  6. The most popular sport in the world is soccer
  7. The letter K is worth five points in scrabble
  8. Wile E. Coyote caught Road Runner only once, on the 21 May 1980
  9. Lake Baghdad is on Rottnest Island
  10. The best blogger is Glow... I almost had you there, didn't I?!
Now that you're all edjamacated, let's Flog, baby.

  1. Number 2- Ha!, Number 5- Ew. Just ew. And Number 10- of course! :) Have a good weekend!

  2. Wow, firstly I thought Aphrodite was the goddess of love! And secondly, that's definitely one messed up birth story. Who comes up with these things?

  3. Weird, right?! She's goddess of love, beauty, pleasure (wink wink), and procreation (nudge nudge).

  4. Oooh! I HEART trivia nights!  Although I don't get to do them as often as I'd like.  I consider myself the music encyclopedia and depend on my team mates to answer all other questions and then have me scrutinize their answers!!! :D

  5. I know what all the Scrabble letters are worth. I know little else.

  6. I'm with Wanderlust.  Ask me anything about Scrablle, the rest I just guess and hope for the best.

    I do love a trivia night, although more for the 'drinking with friends' rather than the actual task at hand

  7. Quiz Nights and Bingo baby! I'm dying to go to Bogan Bingo...I feel like I'd totally fit in there.  I suck at general knowledge, but get to pop culture and celebrity questions and I am all over it like Britney on a Vegas strip club pole recreating Baby One More Time after a few too many Vodka Tonic's....

  8. Woohoo thanks for the info. I love trivia! only took part in quiz nights during uni though.. But it was fun :)

    Ai @ Sakura Haruka

  9. I tend to know the most unusual, left of field answers, my sister knows politics, husband knows geography and sport - we're a great team :)

  10. It is a skill. I hope it's on your resume.

  11. I must admit the drinking with friends part is a rather large part of why I love it :)

  12. Bogan bingo - is that where they call out "flannelette shirt" "missing teeth" "cask wine" and if you have them all you shout Bingo!?

  13. Commit them to memory Ai, you will go far!

  14. Sometimes it's tough being this clever :P

  15. OMFG, Glow, I *so* heart quiz nights! And I often win cos I'm so bloody over-educated.... if you ever need a spare to join you, let me know!

  16. Now if number 5 was added to my Birth Stories linky I'd have the hottest blog in the UK!!

  17. You are indeed a nerd. A cool nerd, though. I enjoy Quiz Nights, too and we usually have one in our office parties. I wouldn't have provided the same answers as the above though, no no no ;-)
