Quiz Master Lou believes that the alternate universe of desperate guesses is gaining some
metaphysical power in the trivia-verse. How do we test this hypothesis? By measuring the
amount of pleasure emitted from the audience when the quiz master reads their incorrect
answers and comparing it to the amount of satisfaction emitted from same when the quiz
master announces correct guesses. This might be expressed as:
Pl = F < / > (Sat)
Since the collider at Cern discovered the existence of other dimensions, meta-physicists have
begun arguing anew that the existence of heaven and hell has been confirmed. However, the
subject of this recap is not to rekindle that old debate, but rather, to look at what is
before us in (what we call) reality anew. For example:
The question, "What 1996 comedy featured three divorced women seeking revenge on their exes?"
elicited only a marginal Satisfaction response when the correct answer of The First Wives
Club was announced, but when the alternate, incorrect guess of Charlie's Angels was offered,
the Pleasure response was exceptional.
Contrarily, when an image of Italian race car inventor/driver Enzo Ferrari was correctly
announced, the Satisfaction quotient was much more powerful than the Pleasure quotient for
the incorrect, yet undeniably measurable response of Zero Mostel.
This brings us to an intersection with the Heisenberg Principle. If we apply the age old
concept of convocation as a concentrated application of metaphysical energy being projected
through space, then the energy projected by a trivia audience should be just as measurable.
But, we have to look outside the box with the cat in it to achieve anything approaching
