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?

It’s logical: Kim Cattrall, while filming Star Trek IV: The Undiscovered Country, posed for photos on the Enterprise bridge wearing nothing but Vulcan ears. Fearing harm to the franchise, Leonard Nimoy had the photos destroyed. (source)  


Not sure I buy this one: The reason public toilet seats have a gap in the front is to aid women. Leaving a space allows them to wipe without touching a “dirty surface.” (source)


Yes, but am I in the 16%? in a study of 26,437 women, 84% of them said that the penis size of their significant other was just fine. Numbers that large strongly suggest the findings are truly valid. (source)


Great news for BG2-ers: watching horror movies can burn up to two hundred calories, the same as a half hour walk. (source)


SFNS is a NZ problem: The courts in New Zealand allowed a child to be named ‘Number 16 Bus Shelter’ (source)

    would it be too obvious that the link is to #3, Burj Khalifa is the largest phallic symbol in the world.

    • Tiberius

      You beat me to the same answer by a few seconds!

    • david W

      Or it could be to #2 because it has by implication the tallest public toliets in the world, as it has the tallest nightclub and restaurant

      • david W

        And just to show I have way to much time on my hands. Burj Khalifa was used in parts of Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol. Paula Batton also co-stared in the movie, and she was the star in Mirrors a horror movie that came out in 2008. Link to # 4.

        And with that I have better go do something with my life…..

    • It may be obvious, but it was also correct. I was hoping people would ignore the obvious :)

  • Nechtan

    “Sex in the City 2” meant to be filmed in Dubai was refused permission to do so link to item 1?

  • waldopepper

    im no trekkie but undiscovered country was no 6, not 4 as you have intimated here.

    • pidge

      VI, IV, who cares? :)

  • James M

    Item 3, 84% is the number of Dubai resedents to expect a rise in rent.

    Did Lenny boy recently visit?

  • KiwiDR

    Link to 4: you would burn a crap load of calories climbing the 2909 stairs in the burj khalifa

  • bristol

    14% of architects think the Burj Khalifa is too small?

  • DrFix

    Isn’t some country trying to force men to be seated while they “drain the main vein”? Maybe item 2 “The reason public toilet seats have a gap in the front” is to give men a bit of ball room?

  • Never in the dark…..
