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?

Lyric quiz. In honour of England's magnificent start to The Ashes.

Round 8 - I Don't Like Cricket, I Love It

1.All I know is that to me. You look like you're lots of fun
Open up your lovin' arms, I want some, want some

2.And Harry doesn't mind if he doesn't make the scene.
He's got a daytime job he's doing alright

3.Tender nights before they fly. Send falling stars that seem to cry
Your baby doesn't want you any more

4.Well, the undertaker drew a heavy sigh. Seeing no one else had come
And a bell was ringing in the village square.

5. Just can't get over losing you
And so if I seem, broken and blue

6.Oh, baby this town rips the bones from your back
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap

7.There's evil in the air and there's thunder in the sky,
And a killer's on the bloodshot streets

8.Six o'clock, T.V. hour, don't get caught in foreign tower
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn

9.Headlight shining, driving rain on the window frame
Little young Lady Stardust hitching a ride... and it's

10.There's a place I go when I'm alone
Do anything I want, be anyone I wanna be

Really? Fascinating, if the hate was that bad I'm surprised they didn't go in different cemeteries!

I always find it quite sad that the creators of big companies never seem to see the fruits of their labour. Would Walt Disney for instance like what his creation has become now or would he be happy raking it in?! If you want a good film "The Founder" with Michael Keaton is worth a watch. All about the start of McDonalds and the back stabbing etc that goes on.

10 was set up in pure spite. They are buried at opposite ends of a cemetery because they hated each other so much
