PF Trivia Sundays!

  1. Mar 17, 2014 #1

    Starting this coming sunday, March 23rd, I'll be hosting a trivia contest during PF Chat.

    The trivia will be run inside the Science Trivia room. Starting time will be 1PM CST.

    This will be speed trivia. So questions will be google-able, but if you have to Google it, you've likely lost.

    The topic will be anything. There will be 25 questions.

    Winner will receive a special PF Trivia postbit badge for that week and 6 months gold membership. Second place will get 6 months gold membership.

    I'll be hosting every Sunday that I can. Reminders will follow. Hope to see you there!!

    This may be silly but what type of questions will be there? Physics and Math related?
  5. Mar 18, 2014 #4
    The topic could be anything, totally random (there will be some math and science though) :)

    Good idea! I wish this could be done in teams somehow, but I don't think that's feasible for an online trivia contest. I would like to see the PF team go up against some other team. :)

    Also, very curious about the questions. My experience with trivia has been solely in the US and would be impossible for someone who didn't grow up here or live here a long time.

    My favorite science trivia question: How many electrons in a pint?

    Some others...
    How much heavier is a heavy year than a light year?
    We know the speed of light - what's the speed of dark?

    I won't be there as I've had too many beers, but NCAA Basketball may be a good topic. Not many sports fans among scientist here however.

    Thanks, but a lot of the credit should go to Google!
