- 5 Trivia quizzes on the Ig Nobel awards (a spoof of Nobel Prizes), the order of inventions, “Could they have?” (Could Babe Ruth have signed autographs with a ballpoint pen?), accidental inventions, and telling fact from fiction
- Word games related to the invention of new words and new definitions for existing words
- Discussions related to the worst inventions, the best inventions, and the most amusing inventions, and the unintended consequences of inventions (the radar thing – he invented it for war planes)
