Taxes and Trivia

I finished our taxes this weekend and listened to the annual world's largest trivia contest unfold on 90FM, Steven's Point, Wisconsin, via an Internet feed. The guy I sat next to on stage at the Millionaire show back in 2000, Mike Gliniecki, has participated with friends each of the past 15 years. The contest ran 54 straight hours with a new question given over the air every 6 minutes. About 400 teams participated this year.

Points are awarded based on how many different teams come up with the correct answer. Internet lookups are allowed but the questions are designed to take that into account. Mike and his trivia team, Larry & Vince's Driving Academy, finished 68th, an all-time best for them. Congratulations. Now get some sleep!
