Welcome to Lateral, where two more teams are going to be taking on some tough lateral thinking questions. -Playing today we start with... -I'm Vicky. During the week, I am a museum professional. but at the weekends I make videos about trains with this man. And I am Geoff, and I do like railways and trains a lot and have a YouTube channel exclusively all about them as well as a joint one. So are you hoping that train questions come up? -I'm really hoping. -Very good on railways and transport, and travel, and geography in general, that would be our specialty. Do you have a team name? Off Peak Only. Team Off Peak Only, alright, that might get shortened to team Off Peak, or team Off, depending on how much of a rush I'm in. But alright, playing against you we have... My name is Lizzy, or better known as LDShadowLady, and I make Minecraft YouTube videos. And I'm Joel, sometimes known as SmallishBeans, and I also make Minecraft YouTube videos. So we're hoping for video gaming questions. -Yeah, very much so, yeah. -Anything else you're looking for -or hoping not to have? -Movies. I'm okay at movies, but sport, no, science, no, maths, no, it's a long list of no's to be honest. I don't think any of the teams like sport, is that...? Yeah. Vicky's good at movies and I'm good at sport and pop music. Okay. At least one sport question would be nice. Do we have a team name? Pinky and the Brain. Which one's which? Lizzy is both, and we're Pinky and the Brain and Joel. Alright, again, I might have to make that team Pinky when we're in a rush, -but is that okay? -That's cute, I like that. Alright, so team Off Peak, and team Pinky, let's start round one. Round one is Deep Thought. Six lateral thinking questions, sixty seconds for each question. Buzz in as soon as you think you know the answer. The earlier you buzz, the more points you'll get. But if you're not sure, hold on and I'll steadily reveal some clues to make it easier. If you're ready, the first question is going to go to team Off Peak. Fingers on buzzers, have a look at this. A version of this object currently available on sale has sections labelled DAYTIME, NOONDAY, EVENING and BEDTIME. -What is it? -Some kind of clock. Alarm clock. Should we wait for another clue? Because that seems too obvious. -It's clearly time based, isn't it? -Daytime, noon... Noontime. Think laterally, it might be not be time based, so what else refers to time that isn't to do with time? It tends to be used by older people. -Is it to do with like pills, medication? -Oh, yeah, yeah. -A pill dispenser device? -A pill box, pill... not a pillbox! -Press the buzzer! -Okay, a medication, pill dispensing box. Yeah, it's a seven day pill dispenser, you're absolutely right, for three points. Each of those words has seven letters in it, so there's one over each day and it's easier to print. But you're absolutely right, for three points, that's a seven day pill dispenser. We didn't think we were going to get one. We thought we were going to get zero. That's amazing, we've got three points. Okay, even if we get nothing else, we're good. You're on the board. Team Pinky, James Polk, US president during the 1830s, was not an impressive figure, and sometimes went ignored when he entered the room at large gatherings. To solve this problem his wife arranged for what to happen? -Oh gosh. -Maybe something to do with how he looks so that people notice him more when he walks in? Clothing or some sort of weird... clothing device, -Something, I have no idea though. -Or a sound plays when he walks in. Oh, that would be smart, but it's the 1830s, like they'd have to get a band. It got people's attention. Well, clearly we knew that. I think yeah, maybe a band played. Maybe he had a theme tune when he walks in. -Can we go for that? -Sure, go for that if you want. -For three points. -A theme tune. -Yeah, I'll allow it. -Yay! It's "Hail to the Chief", it's the traditional presidential introduction, and now every time a president walks in to a big function they play that to let them know he's here. -You're absolutely right. -And you laughed at me. I will allow theme tune, that's absolutely fine for three points. -Is that 'da da da da' music? -Yeah. Here it is. Team Off Peak, in 2001 the artist Milton Glaser got the idea for this morale-boosting artwork on September the 12th, which lengthened his 1976 original by 300%. What did the original say? -What? -I know this. Morale-boosting artwork, 1976. September 11 was obviously the awful tragedy in New York. -Okay, yes. -Was that 2001? The original is on many tourist t-shirts. The font, it's the font, it's the 'I heart NY' font that you get on a t-shirt, isn't it? Oh, okay, yes. Yes, go for it. -Yes. -I heart New York. Is correct for 3 points, you're absolutely right. The original has four characters, there's 12 more there in the same font, so it lengthened by 300%. -Absolutely right. -Another three points. -I'm impressed. -I'm impressed by you. Team Pinky, have a look at these. What's missing? Coordinates, what's missing? I have no idea at all. -I know nothing about geography. -I don't know, I'm not good at geography. What could be missing? -There's three sets, so that would be three. -East and South. Those are three points on the Earth. So it makes a triangle, it's ... what is it missing? There's north and west, or is it north and west? Probably not northwest. -That's longitude and latitude. -Together they make something famous that you can't see. -The Bermuda Triangle. -Well, you go for it. Ships are missing in the Bermuda Triangle. I don't know if it's just the Bermuda Triangle, though. -Shall I try it? -Try it, go for it. Is it the Bermuda Triangle? -Have another look at the question. -But what's missing? -Ships. -Yes. -Oh, that was it. -Yes, that's absolutely right, ships. -You looked so confused when I said ships. -I'm so confused, I had no idea. Those are the three points of the Bermuda Triangle, so what's missing is ships and planes that have entered it. Well, in legend, anyway. Congratulations, that's two points to you. The next questions are on the buzzers for both teams, so fingers on buzzers. Two similar looking birds of the same species are perched on a fence in a normal fashion. One bird is from the countryside and the other lives in a city. Without any scientific examination or special knowledge, most people would be able to tell them apart after a few minutes. How? By… It could be like a dove, because a dove in the country is like a pigeon or something. Pigeon's, one's more bedraggled, one is... You couldn't do this immediately. It has to be something behaviour, it would have to be behaviour because it's not from looking at it maybe. Would the one from the countryside have a different call? Possibly. It could be pigeons, pigeons like in the city would come towards you, -pigeons in the country... -It's to do with the bird call. -Oh no, it's a sound. -They've got a different accent. -So the city bird would be quieter. -Well, I have literally no idea. -Okay, go, go for it. -Buzzing for two points. Out on a limb, I'm going to say that the city bird would be quieter and the country bird is sort of more used to making more noise, So they would be doing the louder and more frequent calls than the city bird. I don't know why though, but that's my guess. It's not what I've got, so I'm going to hand over the rest of the question. You've got that uninterrupted if you want it. Clock starts again now. Right. Most people, so normal people, knowledge of birds... -What do you know about birds? -I know nothing about birds. The bird calls could still have the same notes, in the same order. -What? -I have no idea. -Yeah, I have no idea. -I was thinking it might sound like a ring tone if it was in the city, but that's really dumb. Guess, guess, have a guess, It sounds like a ring tone - you made me do that! It's not, it´s the same notes. Geoff, you were the wrong way round. The city bird is louder because it's got to compete with traffic noise. -Don't I get half a point for that? -There are no half points for that, -I'm really sorry. -So I was on the right lines. You were entirely on the right lines, you just got it the wrong way round. Definitely more right than us. Fingers back on the buzzers, last question in this round. A performer was asked to stream a concert on the Second Life virtual world by a user. They had the money to pay and there was nothing illegal or immoral about the request. And yet the performer replied, "As if." That decision cost her an estimated £118 million, which she now regrets. What didn't she foresee? The internet? Second Life is the one with all the weird characters and stuff. Yet the performer, that decision cost her an estimated… What's the Second Life virtual world, do you know? Do you know? I don't know anything about that. What? Many people didn't foresee this either. How popular it would be. It's not Donald Trump's inauguration, is it? Oh, yes. No, but why would that be on Second Life? -Maybe… -Wait, we'll wait for a clue. Yeah, let's wait. Some people have called this a giant ponzi scheme. What's a ponzi scheme? I've heard of that. Why would she have got 118 million pounds, not dollars? It's to do with a financial fluctuation. Was she paid in Bitcoin? Yes. She did not foresee the rising value of Bitcoin. This was Lily Allen, who turned down something like 10,000 Bitcoin when it was not worth anything to perform in Second Life. So that's absolutely right for one point, congratulations, which means at the end of that round the scores are tied six all. Neck and neck. Round two is Second Thought. Teams, you're going to see a board of 12 numbers. Behind each one is a clue, all those clues point to one single answer. And that's what I'm looking for, it's got to match all the clues, even the ones you haven't seen yet, but there's no penalty for guessing wrong, So if you're not sure take a guess, it might miraculously be right. The earlier you get it, the more points you get. So team Off Peak, you start with five points possible, pick a number. Eleven. Number eleven. Government-owned. Could be so many things. Taxes? Taxes, I'm going to take that as an answer. It's not what I've got on the board. -Team Pinky, pick a number. -Can we have number four, please? Number four, for five points. -Works in a vacuum. -Right. What works in a vacuum? There's no sound in a vacuum. -Just guess it. -The Tardis. The Tardis is not unfortunately government owned. -Well, it's a police box. -Actually, it's the BBC's. So yeah, sadly not what I've got. -For four points, pick a number. -Number five, please. Number five. Reusable. Rubbish? Rubbish, no, I haven't got that, so pick a number. -Seven. -Number seven. Orbiter. Space? -Space, that's my answer. -Space, no, sadly. Not government owned as far as I know, not yet anyway. Team Off Peak, pick a number. I think I have an idea, so let's go with number two. Number two.
