Trivia Q&A: September 10

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
We had seven teams in for Trivia on Tuesday night, and a rather lively crowd in as well. We had a close three team race heading to the finish, but the guys from DIMS pulled it out, as they won by just two points. They wound up with 42 points, and my congratulations to them on another hard-fought win.
1 Top 2 Bottoms finished second with 40 points, and Bolton Gets Whacked finished in third place with 33 points.
Best Team Name: Ooh, Look at Me, I Got a Haircut (somebody noticed!)
