I've worked out that if I beat you by an average of 1 point a day for the rest of the month then victory will be mine.

Guys, I reckon we're gonna have to learn to live with these Yankie topics, but it does give us something to discuss post-quiz...[/QUOTE]

Correct steve , at the end of the day its just a laugh even if the american questions are crap. You can have the badminton thing though i am not built for that at just a tad over six foot tall and eighteen stone

That's not really the point - today there were probably only four questions that most of us could answer and the results should not have to rely on lucky guesses for the rest.

Sorry to go on about this, it obviously doesn't irk the rest of you so much.
Susie It's been the same since most started playing..in the past some players have jacked in the quiz when it has been re-vamped with differing sets of questions.. every now and then players ask or wish for certian catogories but in the end you just can't please everyone.
Now here's what I would like ..music easy or medium , history easy, , UK easy or medium...all this "difficult" stuff is to much like hard work.

The quiz mistress doesn't play the quiz. So no one could ever accuse her of weighting the catagories in her favour.

I've occasionally asked the subjects be changed, to prevent boredom, but never suggested what they should be. The element of suprise keeps us on our toes.

Personally I'd like more art, opera, twentieth century American literature, seventies children's TV, and the life and times of the Bloomsbury set, please.

Bombed out again today on UK....grumble,grumble! (I get the History, geog stuff but not ads, music and soaps).

Art fine, Opera OK, US literature -no way thanks (spend all my time correcting the spelling and grammar), 70's TV fine, bring on the Bloomsbury's, Inklings and English Lit., Science and nature please, Film and Food and anything about Whodunnit's!

Off into the corner again, for a little weep, with my Dunces hat on

I'll give you a game of Badminton Steve - used to play many moons ago. My mum was a very good player in her youth...

As to Rugby, Dave, I think you should meet up with Rindy -sounds like you're pretty much the same build -could be an interesting match -i think he could turn out to be very agressive though

Aggresive? Nah.

Just sturdy.

Though I remain undeafeated at British Bulldog, and am unlikey to be blown over by a sudden gust of wind.

Interesting U.K. fact of the day.

Andrew Neil was editor of the Sunday Times 1983-94.

He famously had an affair with a Commons researcher, and part time harlot, Pamella (pronounced Pam-ella) Bordes.

He dies his Brillo pad type hair, and now presents politics show, This Week, which follows Question Time. Which incidentally is presented by David Dimbleby, who doesn't wear a natty bowtie.

Give, give, give.

Soon have you up to speed, about what's happened in Britain, in the last four decades.

Aggression is what is needed on the rugby pitch , but focused in the correct way of course. British bulldogs eh those were the days i even had hair then 10 on the quiz today but time to slow again, never mind did enough to stay ahead of steve

Have copied it all down in my new note-book (not my ACER!).

Being an old-fashioned sort of girl I find I memorise things better when I write them by hand. Have divided it into categories: Gossip, Soaps, Girl/Boy bands, Politics, Media, TV commedies, Slang etc...you know how much I like to make lists.

I am using my 37yr old Waterman cartridge pen with Royal blue ink which has never let me down in exams.

Blooper and Chav are my first slang entries...

Just to give back a little -Borde is a spanish word with many different meanings among them: Edgy, Illegitimate and Border. In Italian the word is Bordo -it doesn't take a massive leap of the imagination to get to Bordello which somehow seems appropriate for Pamella

What is Channel 4 by the way?

Well after my masterly 4 yesterday on UK, managed to get 10 today in just a minute - still only 5th though as I'm no speed merchant.

Probably because I have worn myself out shopping for pressies till I dropped today. About 150euros an hour and I set off early!

Was undecided about two cute pairs of ankle boots (to go with a rather lovely blue knitted dress with lovely lacey detail at the neck, sleeve and hem which I found) and ended up buying both. Just need a large black brolley to go with the black lace-up ones and I'll be able to fly off over the chimney tops.

Butcher, fishmonger and hairdresser tomorrow and then I'm not going out till after Boxing day so i can continue my Trivial Studies in earnest.

How Norwich Stanley got 10 in 32 secs today is beyond me...does anyone do lessons in Mouse control?

Well done, Dianne.
