Trivia Question [Template]

Question

You are standing next to three light switches. You know these switches belong to three bulbs in a room behind a closed door, and it’s absolutely impossible to see if any bulb is on or not. All three switches are now in the “off” position. 

You can do whatever you want with the switches, and when you are finished you must open the door and go into the room to determine which switch belongs to which bulb.
HOW WILL YOU BE ABLE TO TELL?

Answer: Turn on the first switch and wait for a while. Turn off the first one and turn on the second. Go into the room. One bulb is shining, the second bulb is hot and the third one is unlit and cool to the touch.

I’ve had just about every job there is. I’ve dressed in velvet ball gowns at Disney World, been guilty of murder at a dinner theatre, and offered to pour coffee in TV commercials. It probably comes as no surprise, then, that I responded to a Craigslist ad calling for Trivia Night Hosts back in January 2012. I quickly moved on to Sales, followed by Management, and finally, Marketing, where I now manage big picture efforts to spread our love of Trivia to the world. When I’m not spreading the love, I have dance parties in my living room, listen to funky jazz music, and daydream about a better world.
