Triviology in The Oregonian A & E

Happy Turksgiving everybody! I’m holed up at home shunning the crowds, but at some point will venture out to grab an Oregonian A& E. Today’s edition contains an article on fun stuff to do in Portland bars as the rains descend upon us . . . shuffleboard, skee-ball, and Triviologycheck it out!
Here’s a fresh new way for you to be awesome all next week . . . bring canned foods or toys to any Triviology quiz. Shaver Elementary School has an annual food drive, and we’re helping them out this year. Any non-perishable foods are welcome, OR any toys, whether new or used, for elementary school aged kids. I’ll have a special award for the team that donates the most stuff during the week. Some of you teams have quite a trophy collection . . . in fact, I’d love to see pictures of any “display cases” which surely litter your team lairs. The Industrial Evolutionists (aka Genghis Khan, Motherfucker!) just added a cup to their growing collection, as they triumphed at the Stumptown Lowdown, with their wide and varied knowledge of Portland, Oregon.
I loved this quiz . . . largely because I love this town. Chances are good that I’ll make the Stumptown Lowdown an annual event. In case you missed it, here are a couple of samples from the picture ID round (no hints for picture #1, but #2 is a non-profit organization):
Folks, we have a rare opportunity to see humankind in space with the naked eye, while standing right here on Earth - The International Space Station will be visible from Portland early in the morning onDecember 6th, 7th & 8th! I also just saw it pass by in the south sky a few minutes ago from my front stoop. For some reason, David Bowie music was in my head, and though I was cold, I was imagining how much colder it is in space. Then a cop car drove down my one-way street the wrong way and brought me straight back to Earth.
