Jackson Library Trivia reigning champs, Border Patrol, swept this round. I am most impressed they knew about the 13-Story Treehouse, one of my kids' favorite series. Breathing down their necks are Logix in 2nd and Silver Lake Literary and Shepard's Pie Society 3rd place.
We had one team drop out 10 no-shows! It was a beautiful day so I understand. If you missed this round, I hope you'll rejoin. The final round can change everything.
All the team standings have been updated on the Town Battle Trivia page and answers to this round are below. It's time to bear down too, because the Local Bookie offered a couple prizes today. I'm working on a nice grand prize - up go the stakes.
Numbers Round answers:
- “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour” is the Ninth commandment.
- Suicide Six is the Vermont ski area located near Woodstock.
- The GIECO gecko says "15 minutes could save you 15% on car insurance."
- The 13-Story Treehouse is the first book in a popular series by Terry Denton & Andy Griffiths.
- Twelfth Night, or As You Like It is the Shakespearean romantic comedy about two shipwrecked twins and arguably his best play ever. Don't miss the wonderful movie version with Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branaugh - I'm ashamed to discover JPL doesn't have it.
- There are eight Beatitudes and I hope I am not the only person who had to look up what that is.
- Celtics great Bob Cousy’s wore uniform number 14. I thought a Bob Cousy is the sleeve that keeps my beverage cold. See how much you learn in trivia?
- Tom Brady wore the 10 in college.
- The atomic number of Nitrogen is seven.
- In one of the best scenes in cinematic history - and judging from the number of you that got it correct, I am not the only person who thinks so - Spinal Tap turns their amps to 11.
- You would take US route four to drive from East Greenbush, NY to Portsmouth NH.
- The first amendment guarantees us freedom of speech.
- There are two moons orbiting Mars.
- Five for Fighting sings the songs 100 Years and Superman. I gave the point if you answered Maroon Five since they are basically the same band anyway... also the number is the same and sometimes we are right for the wrong reason, right?
- The DC-3 was the propeller-driven airliner which had a lasting effect on the airline Industry and was initially used in the 1930s/1940s and World War II. Built by Douglas.
- It's a myth that George Washington had wooden teeth so the correct answer here was zero. It's true too, I looked it up. Again with the learning.
