Stupid Trivia Quiz Masters

So last night there was a trivia night on for charity, and we put in a table. We came second! (Yay!! Also, my streak of never getting less than third at a trivia night remains intact!!)

However, we were asked to name the planets. According the quiz master, the planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.


There was a general cry of "Wrong! Dwarf planet!" From about 60% of the crowd, and the quiz master said "Oh well. If you've named Pluto you'll get a point for it." Earlier on in the night he said "where would you find X in the body (I can't remember exactly what. I am still too full of hate rage about Pluto. If we had lost by one point I may have thrown punches) and when he gave the answer to that, two Paramedics stood up and said "No, it's found here." And he wouldn't listen to them.

If there's one thing I take seriously, it's trivia. I expect the people writing the questions to do the same.
