I love a bit of HQ Trivia, folks, but I also hate it for two reasons: the app is buggy as fuck and the questions are often quite US-centric. But hey, it certainly doesn’t stop me from jumping into a game or two each day.
In today’s game, however, every Australian was absolutely bloody stoked, because question 3 was simply, “What is the capital of Australia?” Turns out this was one of the most savage questions to ever appear on the mobile game show, with a whopping 1.1 million people getting it wrong as hell.

Absolutely fucking owned. To be fair, I’m sure Canberra doesn’t get a whole lot of international attention, but still, sucked in. For once, we got a question just for us, and you better believe we’re relishing that shit.
As you’d expect, Twitter went wild shortly after the question was aired.

played HQ Trivia again, and it asked: "What is the capital of Australia is and I put Sydney and then I realized that Sydney is a city in Australia not a capital (ps: i'm bad)
