Did none of you older types not play Wings on the Amiga, that would have provided the Wright brothers answers.

P.s the comedy quiz, the only fun thing is how pish it is.

7/10. Fat fingers caused a wrong answer for the bone. As my teacher wife says “check your answers before you decide your finished”

Apologies for the lack of league tables - I'll get it rectified tomorrow. But it's a 2 week league so there's no tearing hurry. 

Went to a pub quiz with a friend and his wife this evening. Bizarre doesn't begin to describe it. Of the 25 questions on offer, TEN (10) or 40% of them were on Shania fucking Twain. 

We were quite rightly aggrieved (they had to talk me out of calling the team "This quiz don't impress me much") ... but it turns out that the first 20 questions (1 point) were rendered meaningless by questions 21-25 being worth 21-25 points each respectively. Oh, and you had to write an interesting fact on the back of the sheet for an arbitrary amount of bonus points. We were deducted 5 points for "Warm water freezes faster than cold water" on the basis that he knew that already - and the scores were sufficiently fiddled that we were tied for 1st place with another team who got bonus points for telling the quiz master some made-up bollocks about Shania Twain.

We almost decided to throw the tiebreaker cos first prize was a £40 bar tab (meaning we'd have to go back) but we fluked victory and they mistakenly handed us £40 in cash and we were out the door 5 seconds later. Christ, I thought Tynierose's quizzes were mince but this was off the chart.

8 for Wednesday thanks to good guess for 1st Shakespeare question but 2 in the same quiz is more than much ado about nothing. Mr Potter and cyclist wrong.

8 for Thursday.  The cyclist and one half of Shakespeare tripped me up.
