The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

I'm not so good at trivia, but I know this one:

Spoiler: show
LBJ


But was this really the end of the civil rights movement?

We had an interesting question here on the boards a while back asking what New York musician released the album "Tapestry" in 1970. It was in a thread specifically dedicated to trick questions.

Bill, who was it who released a Tapestry album in 1970? I know the 1971 one, one of my favorites of all time. Was it a trick because it was actually released in 1970? I definitely remember hearing at least one of the songs in 1970.

Don McLean (Carole King, also from New York, released an album of the same name in 1971)

Wow. I'm surprised I hadn't heard of that. Or maybe I had, but have forgotten.
