This does not take into account the times it was Sputnik.

My parents had the Baby Boomer Edition of Trivial Pursuit when I was little, and they joked that any time you didn't know the answer, you should guess Richard Nixon, the Beatles, or Wilt Chamberlain, depending on what kind of question it was. Those were not the answer to every question, but they were apparently the way to guess.

So now I'm wondering: the You Edition of Trivial Pursuit, what should people guess for their three default guesses? For timprov at least one of the answers is Taft. For me? I'm thinking Kate Wilhelm, Marshall Mannerheim, and Glacial Lake Agassiz. How about you?
