Last night, I alternated talking to tech support and playing Trivial Pursuit. I have to say that I am thoroughly disgusted with the state of Trivial Pursuit these days. Like Jeopardy, it has become consistently dumber. I am aware that I have also become smarter over the years, but I think it really has dumbed down. The History category consisted almost entirely of questions about America in the 80s and 90s. (Only in America would 1995 be considered "history"). The Arts and Entertainment section included questions about Melrose Place stars and the movie Twister. I think one question was about the owner of Cosmopolitan magazine. The winner was basically determined by lucky rolls of the die. The questions were either not challenging or totally stupid (yes, I bombed the Melrose Place question). My girlfriend and I are discussing whether we can trade it in for another version that might be more our speed. And don't get me started on those other game shows...

Everybody's talking about the subway series here. I really couldn't give two monkeys.
