I think I might know more about American Dad! than any human alive

Is there a better "lots of niche topics" trivia app than QuizUp available for iPhone? I'm getting frustrated with how shallow the question pool is on some topics on QuizUp but love the gameplay and a lot of the ranking and social aspects to it. Is there any better app for this?

How can I use my snowboard as a (supply) sled?

Googling has thus far been less than helpful. I'm going on a backcountry snowshoe trip, and would love to bring my board. But I can't figure out how to carry my backpack, boots, AND board and manage them while snowshoeing. Is there a way I could (easily) pull the board behind me while snowshoeing? I'll be using poles, so having a hard time figuring this out. Thanks!

So apparently I'm a fan of the English Premier League

I have found myself watching EPL the last few weekends, cumulating last Saturday with three straight games. I think its time to admit I'm a fan. So I'm looking for a few blogs, email newsletters, etc. to follow to stay up on the league. Suggestions? There is a lot out there and I don't have time to filter through it all to find the few good sources. [more inside]

Lens on Lilliput — searching for the theme

Back in the early days of Australian television — back before I was born — there was a show on the ABC called "Lens on Lilliput". It was a show of its time where basically they showed the view from a microscope. My wife's uncle wants to hear the theme again and although all the family of his age remember the show, they can't remember the theme. Google has been of almost no use to me here and I'm hoping that maybe someone might be able to help.
