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?

9 yesterday. Never stay at tintagel as it’s run by Scientologists. Had a paranoid sleepless night there and they hassled me with creepy postcards for years

He's obviously referring to the original one, the others are tributes. Only one works with the link anyway.

There are at least three Bridge of Sighs in Europe that I know of. Two in this country and one elsewhere. So expect challenges!

Good to see you back Di Canio! Still time to forward on here your "specialist subjects" for the "WHO QUIZZERS QUIZ" so if you haven't already give me your specialist subject and everyone will have at least two questions on their strength subject...

Today, I tried to play around with mutiple choice but it made it too easy. It would be a tragedy if you didn't get a few though.
