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?


Starbucks Grande coffee has 4 time the caffeine of a Red Bull. (source)


In 2012 Walmart made USD17.2bn NPAT while its employees received USD2.66bn in government assistance. It seems wrong but with WFF in NZ I wonder what similar stats would look like for our big companies. (source)

    Link to 5; Natalie Portman was in Star Wars Episode l, ll, & lll
    ….but this seems too easy thou….

    • willtin

      Too easy, especially if I could get it too

    • EveryWhichWayButLeft

      Where the Heart Is (2000) – set in a Wal-Mart seems too easy too.
      Maybe James has a curly one for us tonite?

    • James Howlett

      Easy yes, but when it comes to justifying a Natalie Portman link I’m not fussy. Points to the Ante!

  • ShortBackwardSquare

    Link to 3: Androids in Star Wars? A bit vague, but 5 seems too obvious…

  • Tom

    Mmmmm Natalie Portman, no link needed

    • James Howlett

      Acceptable answer. Bonus point for Tom.

      • Michael

        She’s got it. But Claire Danes is the one for me. I’ve had a crush on her for the best part of 20 years (since she was in Romeo and Juliet) and it still hasn’t died.

  • Saggy

    Whoa if she played her cards right…
