On February 7th the termly engineering trivia contest took place gathering the genius (and not so genius) engineering students in an effort to find the most genius of them all. With the usual jokes and costumes abounding, the questions were spread out covering topics as varied as the location of the Orifice (CPH 1327) to the names of the countries in Europe that start with A (Armenia, Albania, Austria). Hidden within the title page of each section was an <i>ironic <i>theme noticed only by the very attentive. With the fun came the usual ridiculous attempts to scrape in more points by offering tokens of love to the emcee. Although some people also employed unfair methods (involving iPhones and BlackBerries) to get the answers, most people were remarkably sportsmanlike. Candy was awarded to the teams with the best costumes/team spirit and funniest answers and the winning teams left the night a little richer. After an exhausting evening of intelligence thanks to the organisers, point-counters, question-askers, and to all those who took part in organising or attending for making Genius Bowl so GENIUS.
