I love trivia but nobody I come into contact on a daily basis with seems to share my passion for absolutely useless bits of information. How about you guys? What follows are a few of my favorites. I've always enjoyed questions with mutiple part answers the most so that's what I've decided to give you for the most part. The last question however is a slightly different version of Mensa's self-administered pre-test. I have no idea for certain what the answer is, in fact I've been arguing for the past 20 years or so with a couple of very stubborn people who think my answer is wrong. I'm throwing it out there to see what you guys think.
I'll be checking back and in a week or so (maybe less) I'll give the answers. And no cheating! You're on the honor systerm here.
You don't have to name them in order here but for fun you cane try naming the actors who played them in the MOVIE version of THE RIGHT STUFF. That's a very hard one. I can't do it so I'd be very impressed with anyone who could. Remember, no cheating! We're on the honor system here.
Name the eight stars of the ORIGINAL MOVIE version of this classic western. My brother asked me this question decades ago and frankly I'll admit that I was stumped. I only got 7 out of the 8 names (that's 7 heroes AND the head villain.) If you revell in trivia and think it's too easy then go for the characters names too.
Here's one for fans of old TV shows. The classic science fiction flick FORBIDDEN PLANET featured an impressive array of actors who would later star or co-star in their own series. How many can you name, along with the principals of course. Wanna try for their characters names too?
Here's one I beat a radio DJ with on a call-in trivia contest. (Oddly enough he missed the most obvious one and not the most obscure.) Four Steve McQueen flix featured songs that went on the become "hits" to one degree or another--name 'em. For extra brownie points name the recording art/artists who performed them in the film.
When I want intelligent, factual info I turn on Fox News. Yeah, sure. Like I'm going to trust a network that can't spell the name of one of the most influential men in Indian history. I'm willing to cut them some slack when dealing with The Mahatma's name, after all Mohandas Karamchand isn't something most Americans use ever day. But they screwed up his FAMILY name! Can you spell it right?
