Re: The White Room Thursday Quiz - 14 November 2019

Thanks for your feedback, guys.

@WispaRed7 - well done on getting the Scottish university one right thumbsup

@EmilieT - I guess it was the French cooking one which you knew. How did you do with the others?

@OldFart - thank you for playing along in this your first quiz. 5 correct is brilliant. Which one, may I ask [just curious] did you have trouble with?

 

and, of course, again congratulations to @Sy on getting five questions correct in your first go at being the contestant.

 

I hope all of you will join in with the next White Room Thursday Quiz when the six questions will be chosen over the coming weekend from these categories -

Events; Geography; Space; Sport; Literature; TV Sit-coms.

If any member - whether a new member or one who has not put their name forward previously, would like to join @Cleoriff ; @pgn ; @gmarkj@jezza1234 ; @AnnieM ; and @Sy who have been a contestant,

as a contestant, please pm me [Mi-Amigo] your name and I will add it to the list for the draw, which will be made by @EmilieT at the beginning of next week.

Even if you are not chosen, or prefer not to be a contestant, you can still join in and play along.

Thank you everyone for playing and your support for the quiz. I hope you all continue to enjoy them.

Re: The White Room Thursday Quiz - 14 November 2019

Well done @Sy . A great effort. Cheers

 

Funnily enough Dendrology threw me a curve ball at first! In anatomy and physiology, dendrites are nerve (neural cell pathways) and I thought 'Hells teeth, that's damn hard'...Then I remembered that they are called dendrites as they look like trees

So I'm pleased that it was far simpler than I first imagined. LOL

Re: The White Room Thursday Quiz - 14 November 2019

Thanks for the info @Cleoriff .

I know sometimes my questions are brain-teasers but don`t think I`d go that far - well, not in a "word" question LOL Well done for getting it right...

The Ultravox one would have thrown me.

Pot au feu, though, is definitely not to be confounded with Coq au vin. Or Chicken Chasseur or Chicken Cacciatore (Italian), "Hunter's chicken (stew)".

Dendrology is a good one, watch out for a dendrograph - either a device for measuring changes in the dimensions of a tree trunk, OR a branching chart used in cladistics to show how far apart characteristics or species are from 40-Figure11-1.pngeach other...

Thanks @pgn for the info on dendrograph. Although I love words, I didn`t know about it being used as a term in charts...

Every day is a schoolday... D'oh!
