Outdated trivia questions

Postby skullturfq » Thu Oct 13, 2016 9:44 am

Previously on these message boards, there were conversations about current events changing the answers to trivia questions.

That happened to one of my favorite trivia questions today. For a long time, one of my favorite trivia questions was:

"Who is the only person to have won both an Oscar and a Nobel Prize?"

Any other favorite examples of trivia questions that became outdated?

Common questions that became dated in recent years are asking about the largest country in Africa and the only national flag that is just one color

A whole lot of trivia facts are going to be obsolete on January 20, unless God or cholesterol or both strikes down Donald Trump.

Also "facts" in general.
