Last week Jade and I went to a local restaurant for trivia night. Our team, the “Jolly Giants”, tried our best, but the questions were just too tough to walk away with the win. For example:
- To the nearest mile, how long was the Berlin Wall?
- What is the name of the waterway that separates Detroit from Canada?
- Name the city and state where the American Tennis Championship is played?
- Who is the author of “For Whom The Bell Tolls”?
- In the comic strip and cartoon Peanuts, what is the last name of the character Lucy?
Maybe you would have done well, but our team struggled. 😦
