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?
Being a bit of an old relic myself, it is not surprising that I managed 9 today.

Annoyed I didn't get the Fishbourne one as I visited that site a few years back. And I kind of knew that rabbits arrived with the Romans

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
I had bifocals as the answer for Benjamin Franklin. Surely worth a point as he invented more than just the 1 item.

Mad Dog 9:53 Thu Jan 13
Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
16 ... assuming its only 1 mark for 3 elements that can be magnetised.

However I put iron sulfide for fools gold. If you disagree with that let me know and I'll take a point off. (Always remembered that from silence of the lambs)

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Thanks for today Cough as always. Got back too late to have a go but a good quiz that.

A really depressing stat is West Ham fans getting better scores on a Science quiz than a West Ham quiz!! Bar Mr Puddyfoot of course!

BTW Clive Thomas was Referee at the League Cup Final a year later and allowed the offside goal hence why he is more "memorable" than Courtenay!
