Trivialities

Every Wednesday I am part of a pub trivia team. We tend to do pretty well, usually in the top 3 out of 15 or so teams going into the final question. The final is where you can bet up to 20 of your points (we had 69 points going into the final last night, 1st place had 71, last place had 45 or so). Basically, with that many teams, you have to bet it all to hold your place. We notoriously mess up the last question a lot more than we get it. We did not put the following food brands/companies in chronological order from the date they were started/launched:

Wheaties

Chiquita Banana

Burger King

Hamburger Helper

That's the right order, we had the last two switched.

We did get the halftime question right, though. Name the four most commonly spoken languages in the United States:

English

Spanish

Chinese

French

I was part of an ill-informed minority pushing for Portuguese instead of French for some reason. I just got it in my head that it made more sense, based on zero actual knowledge. That's something I have gotten better about seeing in myself. A year ago I might've argued for my wild-ass guess, but now we calmly consider things and when nobody knows for sure, we vote. And that usually gets the right answer.
