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?

Even though I said Jupiter if Saturn is now seen as having more I’m happy to not have the point.


And yeah I meant powder... it was just guessing. I don’t deserve anything

I am never afraid to admit to my inadequacies these questions were written long before 2019

You and others having Jupiter may score a point and despite being overruled by VAR those who got a point for Saturn may on this occasion keep it.

Did you mean Powder?
In any case, it seems that I don't have a new lifelong friend as I doubt there are many who would clean their teeth with it. Unless they left the dentures in their pocket in an item of clothing in the wash.

Just looked up.

Saturn had more moons discovered only LAST OCTOBER (2019), thus overtaking Jupiter. Sneakily up to date, given previous Question referred to Burma!

Hhaha. We've been mugged. :-) cheers east.

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Yeah I had Jupiter too



I’d definitely let you have toothpaste - but then I’m not the adjudicator

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Yes PeeWee Barsabbas and Mathias were different people what I was trying to say there is three variations to the name Barsabbas.

I think there might be a school of thought that both became apostles and if Barsabbas was in fact Barnabas he ended up travelling with Paul. All a bit confusing. Particularly given Paul was much later I believe.

5.

If you accept "toothpaste" as the product. I had no recall of the BRAND being Gibbs. (Can you still buy Gibbs? If so, they should advertise!)

Likewise, Mr Bojangles just "dancer'.

Was sure the planet was Jupiter but never mind.

3 for me

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Sorry

6

7 if you let me have dancer

Pee Wee 6:56 Wed Apr 1
Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
7

8 if you let me have dancer (I didn’t put ‘tap’)


Also I was pretty sure it was a toss up between Barsabbas and Matthias over whom they cast lots and Matthias won. Different people

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Sorry I meant Q9

easthammer 6:37 Wed Apr 1
Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
For Q10 Barnabas you could have Barsabas or Barsabbas as they could all be one in the same. Mathais is the most likely choice.

If you want to claim it was Paul I will even accept that as there is a school of thought that whilst either Barsabas or Mathais were the choice of the other 11. Paul was God's choice.

So you can have a point for any of those mentioned above
