The fact that someone affliated with the University of Chicago beat James somehow did not surprise me at all. I've been to their trivia nights at the student pub (my wife was a doctoral student there), and their trivia nights made Jeopardy! look like the Junior Edition of Trivial Pursuit. I'm lucky if I'd get 1 or 2 questions of 10 right in each round. (Whereas in normal bar trivia or Jeopardy, it's more like 8/10 for me.) Now, I know she didn't go there for undergrad or grad, but U of C does seem to attract a certain type of hyper-smart hyper-focused intellectual.
