Quiz nights: the best and the worst
THE BEST: When you know the answer.
THE WORST: When everyone else in your team also knows the answer and you wind up shaming yourself by saying it really loudly, just to prove you know it too.
THE BEST: When you know the answer to a kind of obscure question.
THE WORST: When it turns out that answer you "knew" was actually wrong and the answer your teammate suggested, which you mocked, was right.
THE BEST: Learning kind of cool - if trivial - facts.
THE WORST: When the questions relate to something you couldn't give two shits about, such as the AFL. I mean, sure it might be nice to be able to list the teams in order of where they're placed on the ladder but wouldn't you rather know which world city drinks the most booze per head of population?
