Today’s Trivia





Welcome to Daily Trivia. There is a game to play here. The photo above relates to one of the items below. The first reader to correctly tell us in the comments what item the photo belongs to, and why, gets bragging rights. Sometimes they are obvious, other times the obvious answer is the decoy. Can you figure it out tonight?

    Saw guardians of the Galaxy the other day, and know there is a link to Sedna there. Just racking my brains as to what.

  • Murray Smith

    Nothing to do with the trivia, but the films were all excellent. Watched Shawshank again just last night. Still enjoyable.

  • Steve (North Shore)

    Well James,the photo is related to all items because they are false

  • Nechtan

    Sedna in Inuit mythology had blue skin, as do the pure Kree in the film/comic??

  • James Howlett

    Link is to item two – or do I get my first win of the year?

    • AF

      Don’t know the Guardians movie so its a toughie……some not so obvious links being a gun(n) in the various movies (not shawshank?) or is it the presence of misfits in each of the movies? Or maybe all of the movies contain ginga’s….?

    • RockinBob625

      Damn, missed that. Chris Pratt was biggest star at the Box Office for 2014 with Guardians, and the Lego movie.

  • James Howlett

    Winner! Yep – looks like he’ll be hunting mutants with velociraptors and I’m not really sure how I feel about that.
