Apparently, librarians are the smartest professionals in Britain (or at least, the knowers of the most trivia): the team from the British Library has won BBC2's "University Challenge: The Professionals," defeating the team from Oxford University Press.
Behold the awesome power of librarians. Information does our bidding. We know all, we see all -- and if we somehow missed something, we know how to find it out. Tremble before the vastness of our knowledge!
Then again, maybe the British Library folks should try their luck on Jeopardy first.
UPDATE Thursday morning: it looks as though Jennings may have lost. Guess we'll have to watch and find out.Posted by at September 8, 2004 8:11 PM
