“Which Japanese city was flattened by a bomb called ‘big boy’?”
That was one of the questions in a local pub quiz last night. The correct answer to this question was apparently Nagasaki…
I’m not sure if my team’s correct answer of Hiroshima (Little Boy) or Nagasaki (Fat Man) was awarded any points (it’s only a fun pub quiz, and I resisted the urge to give the quiz master a quick history lesson on the Manhattan Project), but it did get me thinking.
One quick web search later and the source of the error has been revealed. The questions in the pub quiz were taken from that website. As well as five questions on bombs, there was a round of darts questions, which pretty much sealed our fate.
Still, we didn’t come last, and the free Sausage and Chips were very nice 🙂
