A quarantined couple of ‘Pods decided to hit up a Sunday night Sporcle Live virtual trivia game hosted by Alana G. It was kind of fun “hanging out” virtually after the game! Sort of like hanging out in the bar after trivia games, only you’re drinking your own drinks and not actually being in the room with all of the people you’re chatting with! Otherwise, it’s exactly the same (except no bar staff to kick you out when last call is encroaching)! Also there is no last call when you’re hanging out in your basement game room!!!
It was a pretty challenging question set all around! Though we did get a “duets” trivia question correct that was kind of challenging! Otherwise, our theme song for this question set would be the 1980s duet “Don’t Know Much.” Which may or may not be a hint to one of the question answers below (not sayin’)!
Here are the questions we tried answering (some of them correctly)!
1. Nickelodeon – What title character on a 1990s Nickelodeon series acquired special powers after being covered in a top-secret chemical while walking home from school? No clue.
2. Sports Rules – According to NHL rules, how many feet wide is the goal? Nope.
3. ’80s Music – Name one of the two lead singers on the single “Somewhere Out There” which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was released on the soundtrack to An American Tail? I knew the female singer also did another duet in the 1980s and was worried about going high on this, but we got it…
4. Agencies – The Food and Drug Administration is a federal agency of which U.S. cabinet level department?
5. Animals in Movies – The Pie in 1944 and Arizona Pie in its 1978 sequel are what kind of animal? Huh? We thought of Dumbo, not correct…
