Brain Busters

Q & A Edition

ts-brain-busterYou all may know that I hate everything, but one thing I definitely do not hate is trivia. Every Tuesday I drag the boyfriend and friends to my local hole in the wall for Quizzo Trivia (It’s nationwide too!) And every week the Bonus rounds make me want to brick the host in the face. So I thought I would share some of my pain with all of you.

The answer to the last Brain Buster is: He stood on a block of ice to hang himself.

Stay, see? Wins! But, we like autoerotic asphyxiation as an answer so, vodkafanta you are 1st runner-up!

Here’s this week’s challenge.

Q. This ballet’s 1913 premiere in Paris caused riots in the audience. Name the ballet and its composer.

The answer will be posted at 5pm Pacific (or something like that, sorry!)

A. Rite of Spring – Igor Stravinsky.

Congrats to Roxydarling and Rev. Random for their correct answers.

bfm, your answer was right on some levels, so congrats to you, too!

Fact or Feces

There are so many bags of crap being set aflame on the front porch of knowledge that we at Thundersquee! felt like it was time to do something about it. We were all ready to put on our boots and get to stompin’ when we realized it would be more fun to let our Squeers! do it. So, we pass the boots on to you. Be careful though, not all the nuggets contained within are composed of fecal matter–some are golden nuggets of truth and only you can decide which is which.

And remember, no cheating. The only thing cheaters will win is the swift brick of justice.
