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?

3. Not claiming half a point for merely wine for Q 6.

Not familiar with "Tonic Wine" so Googled it out of interest and found this interesting stat.

"Though Buckfast accounts for barely half a percent of Scotland’s total alcohol sales, in 2015 one Scottish Prison Service survey found that over 40 percent of inmates had drunk some quantity of the stuff before their last offense. Of these, many were violent. (Some enterprising inmates had drained the glass bottle dry and then found it a handy solution for a weapon.) “The Buckie made me do it” is apparently the classic defense."

You have been warned.

I got an 8 today - i knew going to church and liking the odd glass would come in handy.

The one with Elkie Brooks surprised me that it was right, I guessed her as its her I remember singing it, but I thought she was just one of many people who had done a cover of it and have no idea who did it originally

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
