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?

It was in a carlsberg advert though

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Well on the day of my 54th year my plan was to play all day golf in the sun, but after not seeing a spot of rain for months it's apparently going to piss down all morning! Seriously with my bad luck if there is such a thing as reincarnation I would come back as me!

So on that irritating note let's make it more depressing with a politics quiz!! If we do stay on the golf course answers won't be till this evening.
