Daily Quiz anyone?

If you are stuck at home and bored like me.
How about exercising the old grey cells?

I have for a number of years run quiz nights and couple of times a year. I was due to do one tomorrow which is now cancelled So I have a bank of questions sitting in my computer's hard drive. They are quite eclectic in their nature.

I am thinking I could put up a set of questions for which you write down your answers. After 30mins or so I will put up the answers. DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS. before I post the right answers.

You mark your own answers and post your score.

I will then record the scores and at the end of the "lockdown" we will see who is WHO's brainbox supreme. Obiviously no looking up the answers (you only cheat yourselves)

Word of warning these won't be easy questions as they have been devised for teams of six. Forming teams on here might be too problematic. So I'll try to pick out the easier questions.

Any interest?

Bit of useless information on inventions. Mike Nesmith (from The Monkees) mother invented Tipex.

5. I had "Mercedes Benz"...so no point there but but I'll take "paper clip". Not strictly true, apparently. First patent, but didn't "invent" it. Fascinating.

3. (incl a guess on the paper clip).

Just the one and only got that because I saw a documentary on the history of the toilet recently! Quite ironic considering my answers have been crap this week!

Poor run continues with a 2 and one of those (Helicopter) a guess at that. Put Trevor Benjamin for Trevor Bayliss, D'oh. Bayliss was probably a better footballer though.

Good questions EH.

About 6 also, maybe 7. Based on dates rather than actual knowledge.

Real ones, please. That was just a pun. Albeit not a good one.

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
I'm confused. You said you want inventive answers.

Do you want the real ones or do you want us to make ones up?
