Trivia Q&A: November 7

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
It was a cold and rainy night in New York City last night, and it looked like that was going to keep many of the Trivia regulars away. We started off small, but fortunately people started coming into Professor Thom's as the Trivia Night progressed. We had 10 teams in all, and I thank you all who braved the miserable weather to come out and have a good time.
The team of DIMS dominated most of the night, and were actually working on a prefect night going into General Knowledge. They got one question incorrect in that round, but still had a seven-point lead going into IQ Trivia. But the team in second place, The B Team, had a perfect final round to win by just one point. They had 47 points to claim the victory, and my congratulations to Cato and Bob on a terrific win.
DIMS finished second with 46 points and Tom Petty and the Heart Attacks finished third with 32 points.
