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?

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Ah yes Nick and Danny, forgot those, and yes 8 is an awful, dreadful, corny film of the highest order but fantastically brilliant at the same time.

MD You might appreciate the three series documentary series on Netflix called "The Movies That Made Us". A different take on film documentaries with a touch of humour added to the proceedings,. It's a great watch albeit fast paced,but some really interesting movie facts like did you know "Halloween" only cost $325,000 to make and raked in $70,274,000 world wide. Not a bad profit!!

Got the link but only 6

Had John Dunlop instead Charles Goodyear always been confused about their contributions to tyre development

Fortunately, their names both fitted with monarchs but as I also had John Wayne for the war film knew I had at least one of those two answers wrong - both as it turned out
