I'm Rob from Kingston, Ontario. I teach physics and engineering at Queen's University (except if we go on strike/get locked out next week!), and work on teeny tiny motors at ultra low temperatures in my lab. I'm a long time trivia fan, and my parents have my lone episode of CBC's "Reach for the Top"...

Re: SHC Round 1 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

Need help with a ruling on "Warp Drive" for the Star Wars hyperspace/hyperdrive clue. The Star Wars people I live with say no, but if there's a case for accepting it I'll hear it.

I figured out most of them and was amused by the change of Boston Pizza to Vancouver Pizza for the series...
