LEXICON - What Latin phrase translates to "occasion of war", and describes an event used to justify war? AGRICULTURE - In what country is most of the world’s coffee produced? Missed Corrections and KnowNotes Stephen Webster says : In episode 74, the question was asked "what 3 action movies did future state governors of California and Minnesota costar in” The final movie, Batman and Robin would be incorrect to me, based on the wording of the question. A cameo as a guard does not rise to the level of "costar" which could be misleading I would use the phrase "appeared in", just to be safe. This might be a nitpick, but if a team at my local trivia missed the question do to this phrasing, there definitely would be complaints. Rachael supports Marc, saying ‘Spy Kids 2’ as an answer is sufficient. Elyse wants us to know the lyric “Rita Hayworth gave good face” is from Vogue and not Express Yourself. Gil wants to clarify that Theo is from The Cosby Show, not The Facts of Life.

Fantastic podcast for anyone that loves trivia, and things that are related to trivial things. This podcast has everything: Beards. Black Rim Glasses. A rap listing of Patreon supporters behind a freestyle beatbox. Rating Listener Questions. Sorta okay Ray Romano impersonations. The occasional guest. What's Know Nonsense Podcast? Two old friends that automatically feel like your old friends asking each other trivia questions. Please 5 Stars only.
