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.

 

As usual, there is one QI-style question, where the answer is not what most people assume.

I have tried to make this quiz a fair balance of questions, although one question may prove tricky.

 

This quiz - as are all White Room Thursday Quizzes - are open to all members.

I hope those who have taken part in a previous White Room Thursday Quiz will take part, and that new members, and those who have not previously played, will join in.

 

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.

I hope everyone enjoys this People`s Choice edition of the White Room Thursday Quiz.

Interesting set of questions @Mi-Amigo . I always puzzle about the QI one. Next time could you label the question with QI next to it? LOL (joking)

Even more confusing when you realise there may NOT be a blumming QI question...Confused

Thanks @Cleoriff 

Good to know that you find this an interesting set of questions.

As to the QI-style question? I know you were joking but where would the fun be if I said which it was? But there again, I could always try and come up with eight QI-style questions Thinking but as I fear the consequences Shirty  might not be such a good idea Grumpy LOL

Four correct answers will get you the Red Thinker @Anonymous and if you give a couple of correct guesses, you get the Bronze Thinker. Good luck.
