    No, you just made it incorrect.

    Today's was tough - quite a few lucky guesses.

    Today’s was hard. My times are always poor as well because I let Mr HH do it with me so have to read the questions out.

    A great day in quiz land, as I sneak past @Moose by 1 second.

    Bravo! You dipped on the line.

    Looks like Wiz's month to lose though.

    Did it again @Moose, beat you by 1 second.

    But got the last question wrong :(:(

    @Ghost of Barry Endean gave us both a clean pair of heels.
     
  17. It's an acquired skill to pick out the relevant words. I used to think moog cheated and then Nugsson undercut him by 5 seconds. What is the fastest? Has anyone broken 20 seconds?

    Nug has always claimed that his left handedness somehow makes him faster at such things.
     
  19. Of course, when you are going flat out for speed on an easy quiz, there is a big chance that you will misread the question - missing a 'NOT' is my favourite!

    Don't forget to play all. We're having inconsistent scoring because of the different numbers playing each day. Much more interesting when there are 15 plus players.

    Thanks for the reminder...

    First time doing this, didn't know that the time taken counted towards your score! I'll know for the future if I bother continuing with it...

    Some really odd and oddly worded questions as well, the one I didn't answer correctly was the one about the tongue helping to chew your food - you don't actually chew the food with your tongue.
     
  23. Meister must be spitting as even 10/10 doesn't get you in top 10!

    Note bump when you had the highest score. :)

    The trick is not to use your finger when tracing along the lines or reading out loud.
    :p

    Backfired - UAE beat me.

    It's actually a really rubbish quiz site in the main. The questions are often terribly worded, sometimes factually incorrect and frequently its more speed of clicking over general knowledge which wins the day.

    Having said all that, it's the only forum quiz we've got right now. I set it up about 10 years ago and it's somehow managed to plod along in the background ever since. It's like that crappy, battered star you put on the tree every Christmas. It's a tradition.

    Yes. He's been on here for years. Surprised you haven't noticed his posts. You've quoted some of them.

    Does Nugsson actually post on here?
     
  32. wfcmoog

    wfcmoog Tinpot

    No. He and wiz are my quiz team mates. I brought them in to bump the numbers in the early days.

    Really, really, really good quiz today. Don't forget to play! Just try and get 9 in a very fast time. Thanks.

  34. Did you use one of your alter-egos to suss out the questions first?

    Asking for a friend.:)

    I don't need to stoop to such tactics.
