Trivia & Polls

FOR NOW, TRIVIA & POLLS IS ON VACATION. IT WILL RETURN AT A LATER DATE.

TRIVIA

Consider this hangout to be your chance to see how many brain cells survived, well, shall we say, the par-tays. In this age of information, answers are a click away. Does it make us intellectually lazy? Perhaps at times. Therefore, we have one simple rule: No cheating! Each week on Saturdays, I will post a trivia question on all topics 1970s. Some will be multiple choice. Others will be short answer. Bring your blue book and sharpened number two pencils. Submit your answer in the Leave a Response box below. First correct answer gets the tally mark. Don’t forget: answer as quickly as your brain can reacquire; one cannot afford to lose any more brain cells. And Wiki-cheeters will be tie-dyed and Birkenstocked! I will keep a running tally of our trivia competitors, but remember, it’s cool, man. Everybody wins. Turn down the lava lamp and chill with some wheat grass.

For our launch, we have offered up a week’s worth of trivia questions. Let’s boogie!

POLLS

Polls will be weekly. Look for them on Tuesdays. This is your opportunity to share your perspective on various cultural, historical, literary and musical topics. As above,  to follow the Poll thread, submit your thoughts in the Leave a Response box below.
