So I participated in a trivia contest... The Great Midwest Trivia Contest sponsored by Lawrence University. The way it works is that the "trivia masters" as a question over the radio; teams have 3 minutes to call in. They do this for 50 hours straight (yes, 50 hours). So basically, you sit in someone's house, do a lot of Google research, and play online all weekend. Our team ("West Bank of Kaukauna: Concealing Weapons of Mass Deduction") won-- we won a destroyed TV and a picture of the Trivial Masters (hey, it's better than last year when we won 6 pounds of human hair!) So you can see, this is just for fun. Here are a few pics from the weekend, submitted for your approval. Digital Rebel; some with Sigma 500 DG Super flash.

Our leader, John, giving his inspirational opening speech:

A "Dance Break":

The fatigue of the contest:

Feverishly researching:

Needed rest for people:

And for pets:

(yes, yes I know this is a "post people" forum, but I just love the dichotomy!)

If the group isn't too put off, there will be more to come (the night time awards ceremony!)
