Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 5 May 2024

Recently we asked a question about ridiculous products sold on Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle website goop.com.

We were going to make up some additional ridiculous products to throw into the mix as red herrings, but we couldn’t come up with anything sillier than what Gwyneth is already selling.

So maybe you can do better.

If your team name is a ridiculous product that might be sold to people with more money than sense, you will get a bonus point.

A smartphone case held by a Buddhist monk as he achieved enlightenment

Solid gold corn cob holders

Diamond encrusted toothbrushes

A coffin Gwyneth Paltrow herself slept in

Any unnecessarily extravagant products will get you a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

Interesting Question of the Day – 29 April 2024

In a 2009 Duke University study, subjects were given 20 math problems to solve in 5 minutes. Then they were given the answers, asked to put their scores through a shredder and report how many they got right to be paid for each correct answer.

The catch is, there papers weren’t shredded.

The average number of correct answers was 7. What was the average number people reported?

The first new player to comment on the website with the correct answer wins a free drink at their next iQ Trivia quiz.
