"Rarebit" isn't lepus related...gotta be something else... :evil:
(I ended up putting down 'hare of the dog')

And curse you Clyde Bruckman for not saying who the Big Bopper lost the coin flip to!
I immediately flashed back to that episode too. I may have mentally edited the right answer in.

Well, it's gonna take a miracle for me to recover in the grand standings after that prat-fall of a game.

If that lady had been a baseball fan and gotten her last question right, would they have had to bring her back next season? Have they held anyone else over the break or have they always done really tight edits? The episodes don't air in the order they're taped, so she would have just been slotted i...

On DD2 I will guess Virginia did not know where to locate Gothenburg? I wonder if she gets it right if she knew the country?
I had it down to the 50/50 of Volvo and Saab. I assume others in that situation would come up with the same coin flip in various proportions.

It looks like Central Park is said to have 26,000 trees, certainly seemed quite plausible that this number could be in the 9,000s. Anyone have a good reason why one should know to go benches over trees? Maybe the precise number given? Obviously every bench had to be procured and installed, so would...

Re: HQ Trivia

It's a reward for reaching Q5 last night. This is the first time I've ever seen HQ use an expiring Extra Life, so I'm guessing it's an experiment to see if it drives off-night participation. Or to depress the total winning amounts so fewer people can reach the cash-out threshold. Unless they change...

I got a notification today that I had received an extra life for tonight's game. I've been playing for 2-3 months and have never had an extra life. Is this something everybody gets? Is it a reward for getting through most of the Sunday night game? Just random? It's a reward for reaching Q5 last nig...
