A funny thing happened at a Trivia Night...
I attended a Charity Trivia Night on Friday. All of other 7 people at our table are Christians of varying degrees of devoutness. One of the questions was; What is the First Commandment? The 7 others at the table had either blank stares or wild guesses, none of which were correct. I wrote it out in full on a piece of paper and handed it to the person recording our answers who asked if I was sure of this. A couple others said that it couldn't be right and wanted to submit "thou shalt not kill". I just said; "trust me, I'm right". They did. Well, when the answers to that round were given I was the hero. I unfortunately had to keep my reply quiet but I said to my wife, "Not bad for the only atheist the the table eh?" I won't go into the reasons why I couldn't but man did I ever want to say that louder!

We did pretty well. 4th out of 26 tables.

Good job there, it is a good thing it was at a trivia night, i am sure those commandments are completely trivial.

Congrats Heathen!

I think it would be interesting to have a real-time Bible trivia competition amongst us. Docskeptic could preside. Everyone would agree on a certain day and time, all would have to swear on the Bible that they would not Google any of the answers while the competition is ungoing and the winner gets...

If X wins they get Y:

Misanthropic - new piercing
Vera - round trip anywhere out of Bulgaria
Muffs - a first floor flat
Girly - personal hug from all of us
Momsurroundedbyboys - one of thise vibrating gizmos
Tartarus Sauce - scratching post
Chas - kayak paddle

I need help filling the rest of this out, suggestions please!

It would be interesting to see which one of us knows most about the bibal.

I'll have fun too.

You say that as a joke but I was reading with the intent on finding out the correct answer... Dodgy
I would have said thou shall not kill too.
I suppose it's something more conformative (and hence "more important") like "thou shall not question god".

I dunno, I didn't fucking learn that shit.

Indeed also of note it is NOT I am the only god it is Thou shalt have no OTHER gods before me. Thus proving that even Yahweh wasn't a monotheist.
