I’m at trivia last Wednesday night (where we are 1st in our league), with my team that is currently kicking much ass (pictured below) and we get kind of a strange question in the final round: “The Tutsis of Berma and (some other country that isn’t Rwanda) race is known for what distinct physical trait?” or something like that. It was a weird question. A lot of people put long necks because, well, you know, the only people you ever see with those weird neck ring things are Africans. (PS: true, but they also do it in Thailand and elsewhere. First pictures that come up on a Google search are Asian women with next rings.)
But what apparently they are known for is that they are the Tallest Race on the planet. I thought that was interesting and I went to ask DJ Appropriate, our Trivia Master-whatever-guy and told him I knew for a fact, the Dutch are the tallest people in the world.
Turns out, the DUTCH IS NOT A RACE!!!…. According to dictionary.com, race is defined as a group of persons related by common descent or heredity. I guess the Dutch don’t have natural heredity? Or am I wrong about it not being the Dutch? Everything I’ve read tells me it’s the Dutch. I think my pubs trivia answer database is a liiiiiittle out of date.
