Back in the pre-internet dark ages, participating in the Millard Fillmore trivia hunt was the pinacle of my dorky teenaged career at Woodside High School. It was so much fun careening around the Bay Area searching for clues, sweet-talking librarians and running up the school's long distance bill. The best part was defending our answers as a team lawyer at the judging.
Good times.
