Trivia Recap – Game # 725 – October 18, 2022 – Virtual Sporcle “Pub Quiz” Format

We missed just three questions – plus that pesky final question – in a recent virtual trivia game. Thankfully our James Bond movie mojo is still strong – and we remembered a name of a fairly recent Bond film that we actually watched (though were not too impressed with). Sigh…I really am a Roger Moore James Bond gal at heart! I DO NOT CARE that they had to tape up his face before each day of filming when he did A View to a Kill. He brought a little comedy to the franchise – as Joker would say…

But this is a different movie franchise entirely!

Here were our questions:

Round One –

1 Expressions – According to a common expression, “it takes two to” do what dance that originated in South America?
2. Netflix (AUDIO) – The following clip is the theme to what comedy series that aired on Netflix from 2015-2019? OK, it was “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” My husband knew this….
3 Constitution – What word from the Latin meaning “soldier” appears in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and describes a group of non-professional fighting citizens?
4 Companies – Briggs & Stratton is a Fortune 1000 company that manufactures an average of ten million units of what type of product each year? No clue…miss. But I did give a hint in the intro to this blog!

Mystery One –
Answer the questions about events that took place on this day in history (10/18).

M1. On this day in 1867, the U.S. took possession of what region after purchasing it for $7.2 million?

M2. On this day in 1972, what federal law, abbreviated CWA, went into effect?

M3. On this day in 1767, what two surveyors completed work on the boundary between Pennsylvania and Maryland, as well as other areas?

M4. On this day in what year did NASA astronauts Jessica Meir (meer) and Christina Koch (coke) perform the first all-woman spacewalk? Miss.
Round Two –
5 BordersMexico shares its shortest land border—only 156 miles long—with what country?

6 Singers – What singer released albums titled Love to Love You Baby, Bad Girls, and She Works Hard for the Money, all of which have title tracks that reached the top three of the Billboard Hot 100?

7 Tennis – What tennis player was named the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year in 1992, just two months before he passed away? This was apparently a FB clue, but we didn’t look up the clues and knew this (whew)!

8 Video Games – Ganon, also known as Ganondorf in his humanoid form, is the main antagonist in what video game series? Strangely I made the right guess here. And I am not a “video games” person on trivia nights!

Mystery Two – 

For this mystery round, your team can give four answers and can put them in any order you choose. You will receive two points for each correct answer.

Name the four Eon Productions James Bond films that have the words “die” or “dies” in their titles.

Got all of these.

We were in fifth going into the final with 50 points.

Final Category – State Populations

Name the three most populous U.S. states with names that are exactly six letters long.

Miss. We thought a non contiguous state was more populous than it is (not saying which one).

Oh well, no crying over spilled trivia! As always, Go Pods, and stay classy, Auric Goldfinger!
