Personally, I believe vocabulary to be absurd because there are so many different answers, and in order to get the correct answer the question has to be ridiculously easy.

How about the Science questions where they ask what phylum/class/order an animal is in.

It is always a nice change of pass when you hear other topics besides Science and arts. I feel all these questions belong in quiz bowl (and really belong in HS quiz bowl), and in every good poll you should include at least an other catergory but nice to bring a hot topic and a poll to the board

I am not saying that it is not fun. Only, where in the world are you going to use this other than scholar bowl. Most math classes won't even teach it. That said, I still think it is interesting, and most certainly "quizable". :D

I stand corrected. I forgot about computer science. Plus people use it just about as much as they use the knowledge that Arthur Rimbaud wrote "A Season in Hell"

Pirate, have you heard of the Ences (not sure of spelling), all the guys in my calc III class say they are amazing. They all claim that they have already completed Undergrad math at WashU and they are only sophomores.
