92: Pick a Side

We're a lot giddier than usual this week as we explore the trivia of things on the side. Chris gets kicky with a sidekick quiz, and Dana's got a list of things that are more famous for their side effects than their intended use. Colin takes us on a lol-lercoaster of ridiculous sideline behavior in sports. Karen dives into the snippy history of the human face profile. Do you know your heads, tails, and the sides of your money? And why are there so many darn chickens crossing the road?

ALSO: anniversary gift symbolism, Mashup Music Round!

RUNTIME: 54 minutes 53 second

 

Featured Interlude Music:

"Always Look On The Bright Side of Life" by Monty Python  Amazon | iTunes

At 47:38 Colin states that "Braille [is] something you couldn't do on a paper bill".
But the last German banknotes (Deutsche Mark) before the introduction of the Euro had a Braille representation of their denomination embossed.
A little research indicates that Canada and other countries have that feature as well.
