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 could be sorted, we need a new host server. I have reserved the url (slightly different) in case the site crashes.

We need a web developer, some cash and possibly sponsorship, subs or adverts to run it.

The downside is that it would probably be hosted on google or AWS server farms and subject to their terms of service. So the anti-bumming, honkyfest that is WHO would be curtailed or short lived probbaly.

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
zico, that's what I'm afraid of, that we're scraping the bottom of the internet barrel of quizzes?

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Yes Zico, I was 19 in 1966 and had a car and there was no breathalyzer, and Friday Night was drinking with the boys would meet in the Toll Gate Chadwell Heath (a West Ham pub, well sort of) decide who was driving and drive into East London, visiting various watering holes. Mile End and Bethnal Green were favourite locations. The Green Gate and the Queens were top live music pubs back then. For a quieter drink, pubs like the Beggars might feature.

Oh and no score for Monday - missed it, today's score only 6 could have, should have guessed some of the film titles but could not make the effort.

Thanks for your efforts

6 for yesterday. And just to say the Blind Beggars was a shoo-in as I was in there just a week before the shooting, back in the day it was a regularish watering hole on the Friday night troll around East End pubs.
