Firefox 2.0 is out today. Thanks to John for imbedding these updates into my brain and also thanks to dingoRUE for the informative post. Miss604.com is best viewed in Firefox so hop to it! With that out of the way…
I’m a sucker for trivia. I’ve got a pretty competitive streak and I sometimes like to think I know everything. Combine that with some friends and a friendly board game, and you’ve got yourself one heck of a night. A way to combine all that excitement with 8+ hours a day of being online is to “play” Guess Where Vancouver on Flickr.
“…In this group you should post intriguing pictures of something (people, place thing) in Vancouver, Vancouver… Don’t give away the location in your title, description or tags. Let others try to guess where and what you took a picture of.[guesswherevancouver]”
Mind you, I’m not very quick at guessing. I usually know the place but someone (cough seanorr cough) has beat me to it. Either that or the photos are so amazingly good and hide their locations so well, I’m at a loss.
Another place with tricky brain teasers is VancouverHistory.ca. Although the trivia only comes around once a month, it’s always fun to test your knowledge of the city’s history – you can also go back and do all the archived quizzes, if you really want to. I usually do pretty well, but sometimes I’m just guessing eenie meenie… on the multiple choice selections. If I do poorly I’ll quiz John and make myself feel a little bit better about my answers (ain’t I a stinker).
