After a handful of “intellectual” questions, we have another social question. For this round, the question is:
Whom would you want to be locked in a cell with for a year?
In other words, whom would you want as your sole human company for a year? This is sort of the inverse of Round 1’s question about coffee. In that round a person has to be entertaining only for an hour. In this round a person has to be entertaining for a year (so you want to avoid the people who will become tedious or annoying).
A note on the mechanics of the HistorySTM March Madness. I concocted 6 questions and wrote them down on slips of paper and put the slips of paper in a small box (I’m a luddite). For each round I have pulled a slip from the box and used the question written on it. ↩
