The P+B Quiz League and ☕ Cup ☕ (when someone can be arsed making one)

Recommended Posts

EDIT: If you're in the league, we're currently doing the Australian Daily Quiz . If 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...

I was about to say that that would be much easier than the daily quiz, but then I took it and got a pitiful 4 out of 10.

Don't have a clue about showjumping, Iceland or a big chunk of the USA.

Defined by any Weegieness in the accent imo.

Very detailed and precise:

I am however undecided on Mull because it's one of those holiday destinations like Rothesay, Millport, Dunoon etc and West Coasters typically don't like venturing beyond their boundary to mix with the (sic) Savages.

Eta: 5 for me. <_<

I guessed them all as well and also scored 4. There were words I didn't know existed in there. And not all Icelandic either!

5/10, not brilliant, but not bad for a few wild guesses.

10/10 on the Anchorman quiz though. WHAMMY!

5/10. I knew 3 and took educated guesses at the Kathryn Bigelow and Jeremy Bentham questions.

Anchorman quiz was 8/10. Disgusted.

8/10- didn't know the one about the religion or the moons, guessed the one about the cards. Knew the other 7 though.

7/10. Not bad considering I got the first two wrong. Desert Island discs ain't my strong point either.
