Good Job, Brain! #78: Too Cool for School (2013-09-10)
Prepare your face for some eyebrow-raising and completely bonkers trivia about school: the odd history behind the classic No. 2 yellow pencil (WHY IS IT NUMBER TWO? WHY IS IT YELLOW? THE WORLD MUST KNOW!), the surreal and the bedazzled things rival colleges fight for, celebrities who used to be teachers, and the impact Minnesota had on video games. And where did the phrase “freshman fifteen” come from? And are *YOU* smarter than an 1895 eighth grader? ALSO: More 1960s Jeopardy!, listener questions, prep school movie quiz! Starring Karen Chu, Colin Felton, Dana Nelson, and Chris Kohler.
