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?

5. More than I thought with only 2 known and 3 guessed. Interesting feedback for the marketing men as I spent 90 mins watching 11 sponsor emblazoned footballers without casting a second glance, or even it seems a first glance, at the shirt sponsors name.

A disappointing 4 today.

I was a bit stumped by the connection between 5 and 6. Thought perhaps Dior had died from poisoning until I googled it.

Cheers easthammer, have a good weekend
