    Lame Trivia Thread

    The idea is to answer the question, and ask a new question. Its a repeat idea with a twist. coolness.

    Q: Who was the first chip maker to produce, market, and distribute the sour cream and onion flavored potato chip?

    Everything i found says that flavors such as <insert flavor> came soon after the invention of the chip, but cannot specify who and when.

    http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potato_chip

    This is the info I found on the origin of the chip and chip flavoring. Tayto seems to be a big contributor. But not the inventor of sour cream and onion chips

    What is the only Nevada town that outlaws gambling and why?

    Why does the bride stand on the left side of the groom at traditional wedding?

    How many grooves on a quarter?

    What is the most common name for a pub in Britain?

    What is the most popular name in the world?

    What are the names of the Pac-Man ghosts?

    Why do clocks move clockwise?
