Thanks for your comment @MI5 

As I said, although there is no QI-style question this time, there are a couple which I think might need a bit of thinking about.

Good luck and I look forward to pm with your eight answers any time after 12 noon today.

To be fair, and as there are a couple of not-so-easy questions this time, I`ll accept just the christian name as an answer [no bonus for knowing the full name] yahoo I have amended the question accordingly.
