    reveal's Daily Trivia 1.11.19

    Weekend edition!

    1) In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, what teams played in the 422nd Quidditch World Cup? Answered

    Bulgaria and Ireland. Ireland won the match, although Bulgaria’s seeker, Viktor Krum, caught the Snitch.


    2) What is a bardolater? Answered

    Someone who is very fond of William Shakespeare (aka the Bard).


    3) Why is a movie preview called a trailer? Answered

    While today’s trailers play before a movie, they used to follow (or trail) it. When they were moved before the film, the old name stuck.
