                  SILVER THINKER                     BRONZE THINKER                             RED THINKER

                                                       

                                                                THE RULES

Each member must pm [private message] their answers to me [Mi-Amigo] between 00.01 [one minute after midnight] and 23.59 [11.59pm] tomorrow - on Thursday 19 March 2020.

No member is to post any answer on the thread.

Any answer received before 00.01 on Thursday and/or after 23.59 [11.59pm] on Thursday will be declared void.

No googling, wiki, youtube search for answers.

 

I have tried to give a balance between difficult and easier questions this week.

As usual, there is one QI-style question [where the answer is not what most people think] and one is "tricky" [but not impossible like the infamous "tree question"].

 

The White Room Thursday Quizz is open to all members.

I hope new members, who have recently joined the Community, and members who have not taken part before, will join the "regulars" with this week`s quiz. 

 

Please feel free to post any comments on the questions - but not the answers - on this thread.

If you have any questions about the quiz, please ask and I will reply here.

 

Thank you everyone for your interest and for making the quiz so popular.

I hope everyone enjoys this week`s White Room Thursday Quiz.

look forward to your pm with your answers tomorrow @pgn 

I agreed a couple may make everyone think this week

- with maybe a couple where everyone will "kick themselves" when you know the answers...

 

- but I think a couple of last week`s questions were slightly easier Thoughful

My brain is still recovering from the deletion of 7000+ emails so a quick look here isn't 'computing'.

I will come back and have another look in a minute.Smiley Very Happy

@MI5 

yep - a couple are tougher this week...

btw I stumbled across one question by chance over the weekend and thought I`d include it.

I`ll be interested to see the pm with your answers tomorrow

 

@Cleoriff 

I can see how busy you are with deleting the notifications.

You`ll have plenty of time to have a proper look at the questions and I look forward any comments and also look forward to the pm with your answers tomorrow
