Geek Trivia: The Quibble of the Week for December 11


If you uncover a questionable fact or debatable aspect of this week's Geek Trivia, "Reason for the season," just post it in the discussion area. Every week, yours truly will choose the best quibble from the assembled masses and discuss it in a future edition of Geek Trivia.

This week's quibble comes from the November 28 edition of Geek Trivia, "Roller (coaster) derby." TechRepublic member frank.huminski nailed me for futzing up a theme park or two.

"The Six Flags park in New Jersey is Six Flags Great Adventure. Six Flags Great America (as you have listed) is in Illinois, near or in Chicago."

Right you are, Frank, I mixed up my thrill parks. Thanks for keeping me straight, and keep those quibbles coming.
