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?

10 today but missed yesterday (out for the day)

Only got the Brakspear answer because there was something on pointless this week about St Albans and it mentioned his link to the City. And I also like the beer from Oxfordshire by that name. Don't think there is a connection.

My school priest told me about Brakspear (I did not know there had been an English Pope) and lent me a book about him (which I never gave back). He was only pope for a few years but he had quite an impact. For instance, it was his decree that made it a serf's right to marry without permission from his master. (Cunt)

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Hard to "PLACE" a clue of the connection here without making it too easy but look at the first word of your answers!

Sorry fellas, couldn't think of a better clue without giving it away.
