Trivia Time: November Edition

I guessed Feynman for that one because it sounded like a snarky Feynman thing but it was a sincere Einstein thing, oops!

I don't think we've gotten a single juggling or Wrecking Crew one right yet, oh well. I really like this mix though, you're doing a good job of making sure different topics are covered! I always struggle with that when I host trivia.

Well played, everyone! There was a lot of tough stuff in there. Thanks for running this, Johnny!
 
Nice, thanks for running this. And huge congrats to Rascally Badger!

I knew the Phil Spector one as I was in Journalism school when the murder story broke and was assigned to cover it. Went to get B-roll video of the house and everything. Had totally forgot about that until I saw this question.
