On Tuesday we had an event to celebrate the completion of a project milestone at work. Food and drink were provided. After eating, there was a trivia quiz. We made teams of four. My team was well balanced, with every member contributing important answers.

At the final reckoning, we were tied in first place, so it came down to the tie-break question: “How many Star Trek movies have been made?”. Both times knew the answer, so it came down to listing them. Fortunately, our opponents could not recall the one that came after Star Trek: First Contact, whilst I knew it was Star Trek:Insurrection.

The win is yet more proof that Geek knowledge is useful.

Tonight, my wife and I are going with one of the other members of the team to spend our prize; a gift card for dinner at one of our favourite Napa Valley restaurants, Hurley’s in Yountville.
