Thank you @Cleoriff

It was fun compiling the questions for this White Room Quiz.

 

I have tried to find a mix of easier and not-so-easy questions. As most people might know the answers to questions about "Firsts", often "seconds" are not remembered, so some questions might need thinking about Thinking

Love it @pgn 

Yes, a few [but some might think all] headscratchers but there is a Diamond Thinker up for grabs for 12 correct answers and there is longer than 12 secs to come up with the answers.joy

I hope the 12 questions in this the Second Anniversary White Room Quiz hasn`t put off our regular quizzers -  @Cleoriff @pgn @jonsie @gmarkj @MI5 @BobM @TallTrees @TheresaV @Martin-O2  @LukasB - and the reason I have not yet received any pms with the answers so far is because they are away, have work, or other commitments, or thinking about the answers.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Good luck with this WRQ.
