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?

Greatest Movie Mistakes Quiz

1. In Braveheart, we get a lot of shots of Scottish men traipsing around in kilts. Unfortunately, William Wallace lived around AD 1300, but kilts weren’t generally accepted to be in in use in Scotland until which century. Was it 15th, 16th, or 17th?
16th

2. Early on in Kathryn Bigelow’s Oscar-winning war drama The Hurt Locker, Specialist Owen Eldridge (Brian Geraghty) comments that a local man filming him is “getting ready to put me on YouTube.” Not unless that man is a time traveller: The Hurt Locker is set in 2004, and YouTube didn’t get its start until which year. Was it 2005, 2006 or 2007?
2005

3. A map illustrating Indiana Jones’ travels in Raiders of the Lost Ark sees the intrepid archaeologist/explorer passing near Thailand on his way to Nepal—a bit odd, considering Raiders is set in 1936, and Thailand was called what until 1939?
Siam

4. Though set in 1935, Frank Darabont’s The Green Mile has death by electric chair as that states preferred method of execution. The chair would not replace the gallows in that state until the early 1940s. Which Deep South US state is it set in?
Louisiana

5. The 1979 cult classic Quadrophenia, based on the album of the same name by The Who, has its share of anachronisms. A movie marquee advertising Grease and Heaven Can Wait in a film set in the 1960’s? What year were Grease and Heaven Can Wait released?
1978

6. As good as it was many a historical inaccuracy appeared in Ridley Scott’s Gladiator let alone the camera picking up a hidden gas tank under a chariot! Whilst the character of Maximus is fictional the characters Commodus, Marcus Aurelius and Lucilla all lived, although the film didn’t portray them or their history particularly accurately. For three points name the actors and actress who played them?
Joaquin Phoenix, Richard Harris and Connie Nielsen

7. Back with Mel Gibson and his next “history” lesson released in 2000. The story of a vengeful father swept into battle in the American Revolutionary War, boasts about historical authenticity and then slaps it soundly in the face. Can you remember the name of the film?
The Patriot

8. 300 (2006). The film is based on a graphic novel based on the battle of Thermopylae, one of the greatest last stands in history by King Leonidas and The Spartans against the Persians. Quite a few inaccuracies in the film which you can look up elsewhere but for a start the Persian King really wasn’t bald and 9-feet-tall was he?! What was the same of the Persian King?
Xerxes

9. Disney’s 1995 animated feature sets itself up as a story about the life of the Native American woman Amonute, nicknamed ……………………..,, who supposedly brokered peace between the Powhatan tribe and English colonizers in the early 17th century. Too many inaccuracies to list so what was her nickname, which is also the title of the film. I’ll give you an extra point if you can spell it right?
Pocahontas

10. The main premise of The Imitation Game is Alan Turing's invention of Christopher, a code-breaking machine named after his childhood love. In reality, the machine that broke the Enigma code was called the ………………... It was built by both Turing and Gordon Welchman, who is not depicted in the film, and was based on an earlier design by Polish cryptology experts. Simply fill in the gap for a point.
Bombe

11. In the 1976 film Midway, when we see Midway before the Japanese attack the US flags that are flying have 50 stars on them, instead of 48 as there should have been at the time. Which two states were added in 1959? Two points.
Alaska January 3, 1959 - Hawaii August 21, 1959 (At the time of WWII Hawaii was a territory, not a state.)

12. In Troy (2004) when the Trojans flee inside the walls at the arrival of the Greeks, you can see some llamas. Llamas were only native to which continent at the time of ancient Troy?
Llamas originated in the Andes Mountain region of South America

13. U-571 (2000) The crew of an American submarine capture an Enigma machine from a German submarine, enduring all manner of hardship in the process. It’s a jolly good piece of drama, but nothing of the sort ever happened and the film caused anger in Britain because crewmen from a Royal Navy B-class destroyer took an Enigma machine from a U-Boat (U-110) in 1941, before the US had even entered the war. Name that B-Class Destroyer, was it HMS Churchill, HMS Nemesis or HMS Bulldog
HMS Bulldog

14. Michael Bay's Pearl Harbor is full of inaccuracies but in one ridiculous scene Jon Voight, playing the President, in an attempt to explain to his generals just how serious he is about attacking Japan, gets out of his wheelchair and stands up. The President was paralyzed, he didn't have a sprained ankle!! Who was the President at the time?
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
So many to mention MD. The gas tank on the chariot is hilarious as are Russell Crowe's lycra shorts in battle! I think there is a coffee cup on the table in Game of Thrones and my favourites are the bloke walking down the street in a T shirt and jeans in Indiana Jones and of course hundreds of extras wearing modern day clothing in Escape to Victory!

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Look, I've lived in both countries, for me Christmas is bigger in the UK mainly because of the days off factor, here most firms close down on Christmas Eve and open again after New Years, the US doesn't recognise Boxing day, so your lucky if the give you half a day on Christmas eve and Christmas day and that's your lot unless you want to use up some vacation days.

Thanksgiving is your turkey day, you might get a ham on Christmas day and weirdly friends will bring round a casserole dish on Christmas day or what they call hot dish. It's all very weird to me, mind you, that' experience from the upper Midwest, it might be different elsewhere but I doubt by much?
