Trivia Night – Testing Your Patients
Trivia Night is fun I highly recommend at least trying it out. Check them out at BrainBlast Trivia.
They put out three clue pictures the day of the game, today’s are…
We had a perfect game tonight! We answered every question correctly, unfortunately that does not mean we won. Coming into the final question we had a perfect score and were tied for first place with one other team.
We answered the question but were unsure if the answer was correct and only bid 1 point, that point was our downfall. The other team answered the question correctly, along with many other teams, and they (apparently all of the other teams) bid the maximum points. I thought it’d be fun to list the answers/topics of each night of trivia (I’ll attempt to remember the questions as well) just for some useless knowledge for us all.

So, how would you have done? The main thing is to have a diverse team. One person is very unlikely to have the answers to all of these questions but that’s what friends are for. Thank you to Nick, Lauren, Kelli D, Kara, Charlotte and her man, and my dear wife and daughter. The titles of the Trivia Night posts will be followed with our team name for that night. Testing Your Patients chosen because most of the people who showed were from the lab I work in.
