Thank you @GrumpyGit for your good wishes for the 150th White Room Quiz.

 

@TheresaV 

mmm although you may have your fingers crossed for @LukasB to get a Bronze Thinker, I have a sneaky feeling that you might hope to get a Silver or Gold Thinker this time Whistle

I am definitely not @Mi-Amigo sweat_smile I have had a look at the questions and I think maybe even a Bronze Thinker might be a stretch but I could get there with a bit of luck and a few guesses sweat_smile

Thank you @TheresaV 

I hope your "guesses" pay off.

 

Thank you @Cleoriff 

Pleased you think it`s a great choice of questions...

You are right. As it is the 150th WRQ, I tried to come up with some questions which might, at first, seem easy but, in fact, need a bit of thinking about Thinking  and, with there being 10 questions, thought that there might some questions which some might not like.

Good luck and hope the quiz doesn`t add to the heat-induced brain frazzle.

Thank you so much @MI5 for raising this.

 

Q3 should read - Mount Elbert is the highest point in which US State ? NOT Mount Elbe.

Apologies to everyone.

I will tag @TheresaV and ask her if she can correct this in the original list of questions.
