Dateline: August 16, 2018. The Lion & Crown in Allen, Texas. It was a hot and muggy night.
There had been two muggings in the lobby already, but that wasn't going to keep King Trivia
Pub Quiz from happening. It's funny how the dynamics of social group interactions come into
play at the pub. The teams that sit together, or near each other, do not seem to fit any one
social study model.

For example, the Ninja Turtles and IFFY! usually are in close proximity. One would think the
Pirates would be more akin to Ninjas. No. They sat closest to the Pooter Piddlers. Of course,
if they're really dirty pirates, that might make sense. If we compare social cohesion with
social identification, then the fact that Pickles on a Plate almost always sits next to Beer Logic,
then the latter model fits the situation since, as we all know, Pickles and Beer go together
well, especially if you're from Wisconsin. Likewise, Bar Guys and Hooligans always sit at the

Ship It! and Royal Flush have no connection or commonality whatsoever. The paradigm of their
group guessing structures is neither based on a division of labor or social strata, nor is it
precipitated on relationships or interactions. Neither model works, and yet, there they were,
a booth next to a table, playing away! But, I digress...

Kudos to the Hooligans, who pulled off a first place win. (I think they brought in a ringer!)
Bar Guys grabbed second, narrowly squeezing Pickles on a Plate out to third by one point!
Exciting stuff!

Our parting shot comes from George Orwell, who said: "In a time of deceit, telling the truth is
a revolutionary act." Think about it.
