Congratulations to those who made it to the podium and thanks to everyone who played. Because this quiz turned out to be a bitch, extra props to those of you who still dove into the shark infested waters. I guess the old adage "out of sight, out of mind" is true to a certain extent. I'll try to take it a little easier on you guys next week. :-)
