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?

Thought I remembered the time zone one from before, and I got it wrong again too!

Pleasantly surprised to get the Gillingham one right. Had no idea I knew that.

East, I was pretty sure you have asked a couple on there but it's a fair old thread to look back at and check. I did however check the time zones. The one I was astonished by was Sweden and the islands. You do literally learn something new every day!

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Didn't do yesterday, but 5 today and I am annoyed and pleased in equal measure.

Should have got the time zone as I asked the same question last year. Must have thought we have a shrinking world as I was sure the answer was 10.

Pleased I got the West Ham question correct
