What does Jonathan have to say?



No Answer is the Best Answer

Each Thursday Lindsay and I play trivia with a group of friends at a local bar.  Two of our friends are moving away so it was the last night they would be playing with the team.  We wanted to send them out with a victory and we were tied for first for the final question!   The final question is worth up to 15 points.   You can bet zero if the question seems too hard.  Here’s the catch, if you get it wrong you lose the amount of points you bet.

Here’s the question:

Put these events in order of when they happened:

PG-13 becomes an official rating for movies

Pan Am Flight 103 is shot down over Lockerbie, Scotland

Wrestle Mania begins

IBM introduces the personal computer
 
Yikes! 

The only clue was that all these events happened in the 1980s.  Are you kidding me?!   We all started to panic because we really wanted to win this week to send Jen and Ryan off in style.  We finally decided to risk zero points.  This could be bad because a team behind us could leap frog us into first with a correct answer.

In the end, no one got the question correct!  We won.  We admit it was sort of like taking a knee at the end of a football game, but a win is a win!

By the way, the correct order was:
  1. IBM Computer
  2. PG-13
  3. Wrestle Mania
  4. Pan AM Flight 103

Dear Superstars, During last night's elimination I think my heart may have stopped beating and that would've been it's own "drive-by heartache." This competition is tough but I'm very proud for making it through the first challenge. My level of...

Songs for Tax Day
So I learned today that if you're getting a refund, there's no penalty for not getting your taxes in by today's deadline. But why would you want the government to keep your money any longer than they already do? With that question in mind...

Blood Moon: reason to stay up late, or end of the world?
There's a preacher in Texas who's a little freaked out about tonight's lunar eclipse, and the three that follow every six months over the next two years. He thinks it's a signal of the end of the world!, and has even written a book...
