  1. EDIT: If you're doing the Australian Daily Quiz (scroll forward 1000+ pages) and you've missed a day, you can find all the previous quizzes in their archive here: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/mind-games/quiz-archive It's a simple enough premise. Every day, they publish 10 multiple-choice general knowledge questions. What isn't simple is the questions. I've had a 2 or 3 many times. I've achieved 8 out of 10 a few times, but never the Holy Grail: 10 out of 10. The day that happens, I'll probably end up adding it to my CV. Here's a link to today's. I got a very healthy 8, my lack of knowledge about the gait of Icelandic horses let me down... http://www.theguardian.com/news/quiz/2013/dec/13/daily-quiz-13-december-2013
  2. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    It's a bit difficult to post the final tables at the moment cos reasons. However, I can give you the play-off teams to get Slippery P's gears in motion, then post the full results when I can get to a PC with a mouse and all that jazz. Premiership play-off is between Mr Late, @scotfree and ... bloody hell ... @Ross. And the SWL play-off is between @The Captain and @me Over to you @SlipperyP

    Never understood why so many celebs get caught drink-driving. Surely if you're that rich then taxis - or even paying someone to hang about and drive you about in your motor as and when you want to go somewhere - is a drop in the ocean.
  4. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    Right. There's a few scores still to come in ... @Salvo Montalbano

    Similarly, when I asked the secretary for the key to the stationery cupboard and she would always tell me which numbered cupboard it was. EVERY SINGLE TIME I would quip "Yes I know, it's stationary". She never laughed once

    And with more controversy than Scotland getting dumped out the Cricket World Cup cos it was a bit damp, Alang1993 has been allowed to keep his original scores and rockets to the top of the Premiership. And can ArmadaleKillie hold on for one of the promotion spots? Twas only a couple of weeks ago when he was bottom and talking about chucking it in. Awe-inspiring stuff. Knew 8. Got 8 for Friday Oh well.

    Pretty sure the golfer whose card got mis-scored didn't swan about with a better score after it went to the pools panel. Over to the committee
  9. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    Well which Tuesday score is the correct one?!?! Either way, the committee will need to discuss. Incidentally, who was the golfer who lost out on some major championship cos his caddy had put the wrong score on his card?
  10. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    Sorry about the lack of league tables. Hopefully get back on track the morrow.
  11. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    Get out while you can Slippery P. These c***s will pounce on any mistake when you're drunk.
  12. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    An early league table revelation from the Cardinal thanks to alang1993's taciturn scores. Sadly, no loquacious write-ups cos I'm steaming. Still, some lovely scores from the lads etc. WD MSU. 2nd Tynie. UL Helpma (+Edmund on QD). Kinc is in the play-offs. Peasy23+DublinMagyar+1 league. alang1993 play-off. BIK + GJ (he's been here long enough to be known by his initials damnit) doon. Ziggy = play-off. More scores. Aidan + Captain up etc. Blah fucking blah. Slippery P. Sort this shit out. edit: @SlipperyP

    More than happy if you are more than happy mate. I'll post the league tables as usual at 12 o'clock the morrow and sit back with a beer while the results come in on the Videprinter (even though that's not how it works). Will probably take a couple of weeks for people stop PMing me their scores even when it's been made clear that someone else is organising it, but I can handle that. Many thanks! And on the subject of league tables, a full boat from the Buckfast and Vagisil leagues (assuming Frankie S and sevesnape have retired) ... just waiting for Cowden0 (Thu+Fri) and @alang1993 (Tue-Fri) to post in the Kensitas Club league, then Slippers can reveal all.

    Don't worry mate. You're safe in here. Not a flange in sight and all the sausage you want.
  15. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    A bog standard 5 to complete a sub-par week. Was on 100% until the Aussie bombshell in Q4. Also got the Ronda Rousey question right though never knew she won a medal at the Olympics. That's one in the eye for Kurt Angle then, although his was gold (only about 3 people on this thread will have any idea what I'm talking about). https://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/mind-games/quiz?quizId=9023&sectionId=1
  16. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    Some league tables for your Gentlemen. Have we ever had a lady in the league? I guess not. Shame though, it is rather cockheavy in here. Btw, @gkneil missing your score for Wednesday...
  17. Darwins's Law - Selfie Stick

    Not sure if this has been mentioned already, but this is a worthy contender (just a shame they had already procreated). Anyway, she got 6 months in jail, to be served in 10 day increments, which I'd never heard of before. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-43410816
  18. Mike Tyson

    Genuine question then. Why did he go to jail for it?
  19. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    Tough question on the Stephen Hawking quiz on the BBC site. If only they could give us some kind of clue.
  20. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    Anyone we know? 6 for me. And what is it with the proliferation of "self help" book authors recently? Not that I'm complaining mind, I seem to have fluked them all.
  21. P&B Dead Pool 2018

    Oh Sweet Loveliness. Points. My first points ever in years of doing this.
  22. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    What a shite week. Not only have I got my worst ever score, all the new advertiser's logos have disappeared from the top of the league tables. What else could go wrong?
