Hey, trivia buffs! Maybe you've taken the "Jeopardy!" online test several times already. Maybe you've waited by the phone (or email inbox), but the producers have just never called (or emailed). You're losing faith that you'll ever get your chance to tell Alex Trebek a funny, charming personal anecdote right after the first commercial break.
Take heart! We've got a Jeopardy-style quiz for you, one that you can play from the comfort of your home (or the office ... you know who you are). We've incorporated categories from sports to science to notable people. And, of course, all the answers are phrased in the form of a question.
Do you know which planet was downgraded to a "dwarf" in 2006? (Hint: It was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh). Or which Olympian has won the most medals -- gold and otherwise -- in the history of the Games? (Another hint: This athlete competed in the Summer, not Winter, Games). These questions aren't as hard as you'd usually see on a quiz show, but you may be surprised ... some of them might stump you! (If not, you can move up to some of our other zoo.com "pub trivia" or "Jeopardy-style" quizzes.
Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor! (Oh, wait, that's something else ...)
