This week, the quiz gods bestowed upon us topics that led to several rewarding internet rabbit holes.

Trump’s golden sneakers turned up a rich history of political footwear debacles. We learned about ring kissing, presidential auctions and reality shows set on other planets. A wrenchingly disturbing Ray Bradbury short story even made a cameo!

Join us on our weekly news excursion and strange detours, and maybe you’ll get that 11/11 you’ve yearned for.
