Like the Ken Jennings Trivia Email, only easier. And not in email form.

The trivia team got the term off to a solid start, cruising to an easy victory at an easy trivia night. We only missed two questions (well, more, because we could only name six of the eight events that Michael Phelps won last week), so I picked out two extras.

1. Whose last words were reported as "I love you, Jesus," by a nun, and, "I can't breathe," by a doctor?
2. Which newspaper first received the tip that led to the man who admitted to killing Bill Cosby's son?
3. Which U.S. presidential candidate said, "The Internet is a great way to get on the 'Net?"
4. What international event prompted USA Today's first weekend edition, in 1996?

Easier? I got nothing. Here's some guesses.

1. A famous atheist.
2. National Enquirer.
3. Gore.
4. Summer Olympics in Atlanta.

1. Mother Teresa
2. The National Enquirer. I liked this as a question, because there was a chance to make an educated guess (in our case, based on the fact that we couldn't agree on which city Ennis Cosby died in, so we went with a national periodical).
3. It was Bob Dole who spoke these elegant words in praise of Gore's creation.
4. The Atlanta Olympics.
