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?
Sorry Zico your efforts to help my ignorance were misplaced as I missed the quiz today.

Looking at the answers i knew 7 so probably would have got about 4!

Ha ha ha

To quote captain America,
"I understood that reference"

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
I thought everybody knew the first five (pentateuch); Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy - they are also pretty much the Torah and much of the Quran.

The rest of the OT is beautiful - psalms, song of solomon, chronicles, kings, proverbs and then there are the books of the prophets.

Genesis and Exodus explain how the earth and man was 'created', the next three lay out the laws and the rest are either prophesies or lessons.
