Love the podcast, but I feel like this impeachment concept is still not being communicated accurately. It's pretty simple though...The House of Reps impeaches (the Senate does not). You can think of this part of the process sort of like a criminal indictment that yields formal charges. If the House passes impeachment articles (charges), the process is moved into the Senate where they try the case (which is presided over by the chief justice of the SCOTUS). There are several options the Senate can take, but the ultimate outcome is conviction and removal from office. This is how a president can be impeached but not convicted or removed. Basically all that means is that the House was really pissed off at the president, voted on some charges, but the Senate didn't do anything concrete about it. - “submitted by Evan TishukShout out to Dan Lundberg and Chuck Grovenor for educating us further on the process of impeachment in the Know Nonsense Trivia Facebook group.Round TwoGRAPHIC DESIGN - What three letter word does the K stand for in ‘CMYK’?MUSICIAN PLANE CRASHES - What Golden Globe-nominated country singer lost eight band members and her business manager when one of the band's two charter jet planes crashed into the side of Otay Mountain in 1991?CURRENT EVENTS - Ten days of protests have ended after President Lenin Moreno agreed to repeal austerity measures and restore fuel subsidies in what country?SPORTS - Loosely based on Badminton, what is typically is used in place of the shuttlecock in the sport of Pickleball?TEA - When flavored with Bergamot oil, tea leaves become what blend?GEOGRAPHY - What are the only two countries that totally surround other countries?Rate My Question“Borborygmus is the scientific name for what common bodily function?” - submitted by Proverbial Lightkeeper Dylan“Who was the former King of England, who abdicated the throne in 1936 due to the fact that he wanted to marry divorcee, American socialite Wallis Simpson?” - submitted by Ian AndersonFinal QuestionsUNITS OF MEASUREMENT - Recognized by Google Earth, Google Calculator and the Amercian Heritage Dictionary, what non-standard humorous unit of measurement is approximately 5 foot 7 inches long and named after a student who used himself to measure the Harvard Bridge in 1958?THE PERIODIC TABLE - How many elements on the periodic table have only one letter in their chemical symbol?TELEVISION - In what year did the television series Three’s Company premiere?Weekly Wrap UpOctober 7th, 2019 @ Palace - As You Wish, 83 pts.October 8th, 2019 @ Gather - Tarpon Charlies, 78 pts.October 10th, 2019 @ No. 3 Craft Brews & Beer Bar - Nobody Puts Squeaky In the Corner, 100 pts.Upcoming LIVE Know Nonsense Trivia ChallengesOctober 7th, 2019 – Cape Coral FL – 7:00 PM @ Palace Pub & Wine Bar.

I suppose I was thinking of the wrestler Brock Lessnar. In the movies, Magneto’s real government name is Erik Lehnsherr. In the comics it is Max Eisenhardt.” - submitted by Quizmaster Lee* Erin Sullivan and Andrew Fiffick wrote in to inform us that the classic Disney animators name is pronounced Ub, like “chub” as Andrew puts it. He adds that Ub Iwerks “isn't one of Walt Disney's 9 old men because he had left the company in 1929 and the 9 old men, who were all animators, came about in the mid 30s. Ub did return to the company in 1940 and pioneered many special effects used in their films.”* “Let me start by saying, that I am a religious listener of the podcast. I get a good laugh each and every episode. Keep up the good work.

The only disease to have ever been fully eradicated was smallpox, which was officially declared eradicated in 1980. Efforts to eradicate polio did not actually start until 1988. Since 1988, polio cases have dropped 99%, however, the disease is still present today and unfortunately is still not eradicated. In fact, in September of this year the Phillipines declared a polio outbreak. Love the podcast, and especially get excited when you guys ask virus related questions!!” - submitted by Brittany* “Alright guys, I'm officially confused. I think every time you do the Everybody Loves Raymond voice impression, you mention 4 kids. They only had 3 kids. Where is this 4th kid coming from? This actually screwed me up at my local trivia night a few weeks ago, when they actually asked how many kids they had on the show. I answered 4 because I thought I remembered it from the podcast.
