Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:
7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: Feeder (music round)
9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £150. Cheat news: Ulysses (pic round)
So, another great jackpot at the Safari and, as usual the crowd will be thin. Monday night in Abbeyhill is not exactly Saturday afternoon in Shanghai, if you know what I mean.
The odds are ever in your favour.
MEanwhile, here’s the cheat clip, giving you one of the answers in tonight’s Brass Monkey Leith music round. It’s Feeder…
People sometimes talk about trivia and quizzing in terms of “useless knowledge”. I ususally disagree, usually I think that getting into the world of trivia opens up routes of curiosity that leads towards better understanding of the world and ultimately more wisdom.
However, there are counter-examples. Check this sentence I found on the Wikipedia page devoted to this single by Feeder:
Despite reaching the top 5 and equaling "Buck Rogers" chart placing, it would become the smallest selling top 5 single of the 2000s, with sales of 19,400.
Great stuff. Thank, Wiki.
By the way, £150 tonight at the Safari. That’s tasty.
