I did ponder that difference.

Ok, you are more disadvantaged than your Ma.

You left the country when women still wore crinolines.

(To make their rah-rah skirts stick out.)

Q. What was the first programme on Channel 4?

Mobertol's answer - What's Channel 4?

I doubt it's plunging them into the depths of despair.

They just seem to laugh, and say they'll even the score the coming day.

I stopped playing the A.W. quiz for about two years, when I noticed my hand getting worse.

Now I think sod it, just try your best.

It is just a bit of fun.

I was also jesting, don't want you to start feeling sorry for yourself, no need for that - sorry if my sarcasm was lost on you this time.

I also think sod it, just try your best -but it hasn't been working very well for me recently!

It IS fun (as well as frustrating when you slip up)-actually, these mini-discussions make it more so...have had some laughs in the last month now there are more players.

Let's keep it light-hearted.

Re: Accywebbers Daily Trivia quiz Comp!!!

Though the host site's based in the gool ol' U.S. of A.

Let's remember we're all British.

It's not the winning.

It's the taking part, that counts.

Ironically the Americans are the most grumbly, win at all costs, nation on Earth.

We're not.

We're stoical.

By and large.

No need to rub it in...

I didn't know what a "Blooper" was either -had to Google it -so you see i am just poor and disadvantaged.

Am going into the corner with my dunces hat on for a while now....

I knew exactly what you meant.

As I always do.

You daft, giddy kipper.

I know that you know that I know that you know...

and you have almost made me burn the chicken -saved it just in time.

Could have burnt it in the name of politics but not for something so trivial as you calling me names again..

I'll help you catch up on the last twenty five years, of popular British culture.

A fact a day.

You know me.

Give, give, give.

In Eastenders old Ethel's pug dog was called Willy, and the script often required her to ask people if they'd seen her little Willy.

Tomorrow's fact will be about the current occupations, of former Militant firebrands.

Give, give, give.

It'll soon be like you never left this precious stone, set in the silver, turd infested, sea.

Don't know why this had me thinking of the Battle of Britain....and the Dambusters, The Guns of Navarrone.

"Never have so few done so much for so many"... oh no, that's not at all British!

I did used to watch Eastenders when we got BBC Prime Channel so i know all about little Willy. It was mainly classic commedy they showed though...

Had heard that former Militant firebrands wanted to become Deputy-leader of the Labour Party

I am glad to receive all you can give...greedy as ever Just as long as it helps me in the Trivia quiz of course.

More likely, in a previous reinacarnation, I was a scriptwriter, in the early days of the British film industry.



Guff comes more easily, to some of us, rather than others.

A classic.

Must have been a real morale boost, in the last few years of war.

Talking of old Noel Coward films, his 'friendship' with Louis Mountbatten inspired his film In Which We Serve.

Another good one.

Despair does'nt really come close to what i will feel if steve goes on to beat me.So please don't underestimate the depth of self loathing and unbounded misery and pain that defeat would cause my inner being.My life as i know it would have little or no meaning if that were to happen..
Having said that if we were on a rugby pitch that would be a different kettle of fish, then defeat would not be an option

....or on the badminton court!
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...
