    We were playing trivia at a local establishment with an old coworker as team mates. He and I both have extensive stores of useless knowledge in history, geography, science, and world affairs. We were easily capable of winning trivia contests any time…if, they stayed out of pop culture and TV pablum. Our downfalls were questions like "the name of the Brady's cat"—an actual question.

    My friend told me about the show and recommended it to us. He specifically mentioned this episode which happened to re-air shortly afterward. The pseudo quiz Penny gave to Sheldon and Leonard after the Physics Bowl competition was a perfect illustration of our frustration. However, both of us (products of the '50s and '60s) would have gotten…wait for it…"Puddy Tat".

      when my friends and I play Trivial Pursuit, the only questions were there is even a pause are the brown (sports) questions.

      I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
