Quiz 2: Friday Sep 18 @ 6.15pm

By -- Vyas Sekar
At -- 6.15pm on Friday Sep 18, 2009
In -- Wean 5409

Watch out for long excerpts (Ctrl-C Ctrl-V) from Wikipedia, Biblical myth, and some geekdom trivia. (Brush up on XKCD and Seinfeld, but don't even bother about Bollywood film/music ;-))

Report (Updated on 9/22):

Vyas conducted the second quiz of the season. And keeping with his tradition, he opened the quiz by (accidentally?) giving out the answer to a question. The quiz had a bit of medical bias (not surprising given the upcoming House season premiere, I guess ;-)) camouflaged as etymology and visuals.

The quiz had a high answer rate, with most questions being answered in one or two tries. The post wouldn't be complete without mentioning that the final scores had a very uniform looking "Bell curve", which is no surprise given the quiz master's fetish for statistics :-)

Scores/standings: TBA (really soon)

Quiz 1: Friday Sep 11 @ 6.30pm

Watch out for some entertaining "pictionary", mostly "fun-oriented" trivia, and of course, a customary question on "9/11" :-)

Report (updated on 9/12):

First quiz had a record turn out -- 35 people showed up! I am guessing the quiz-master was the crowd puller, and he set a high bar for the future quiz masters ;-)

Apurva made a 42-question quiz with the usual mix of entertainment, etymology, cricket, bizzare stuff, and a score-boosting round. Although the quiz did not have a "customary" 9-11 question, it did have a question with answers like the "T-word" and bunch of flight mishaps -- alright, I am just making up a connection to the date of quiz :-)

Overall, the quiz was very entertaining (no one walked out ;-)) with a very few unanswered questions. Looking forward to Vyas's quiz on Friday!

Scores/standings: TBA
