Are You Smarter Than A Librarian? March 3, 2016Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Mindfulness, People, Travel & Leisure.
A few weeks ago, we played a trivia game, Are You Smarter Than A Librarian?, at the Central Library in Bradenton.
Seven teams competed, responding to 31 questions:
Three teams got 20-22 correct.
The top three teams scored 25, 24, and 23.
BFF and I came in last!
We got 17/31 correct.
Our last place finish didn’t bother us since the other teams had 4 or 5 members searching their collective gray matter for answers. We were the only 2 person team competing.
Plus, the questions we missed addressed things we never knew, not stuff we knew but couldn’t recall.
# What does the “VSOP” on Cognac bottles mean? We got as far as “Very Special Old” . . . but the “P” stumped us.
# We didn’t know the month & year Osama bin Laden bit the dust, but the fact that we lacked that fact doesn’t bother me a bit ~> what matters to me is that he, like Jacob Marley, is “deader than a doornail.”
# We missed questions about the TV series “Scandal” and other TV shows we’ve never watched.
# We were way off base when asked how many singles the Beatles released in 1964.
We guessed “6” ~> not even close!
None of the groups landed in the right ball park on this question.
The correct answer: 29!
Despite our last place finish, we had a blast.
And lots of laughs.
So, even if we are NOT smarter than a librarian, we’d play again!
Aah . . . that’s better!
