I hope there's no rush with these @Mi-Amigo. They certainly won't be in 'just after 12md'. I'm pretty confident with 5, maybe 6 but others need thinking about, Thinking

Re: White Room Quiz Wed 14 Apr 2021

Thank you @Cleoriff 

No rush with pm with your 8 answers. Some of the questions might need thinking about.

Good luck

 

Thank you @LukasB 

Don`t know yet whether or not you`ll get a Thinker this time. Maybe a couple of guesses will pay off ?

Good luck

 

Thank you @jonsie 

Pleased you think that there are "some excellent questions" this time but as you say some "will require guesswork" or perhaps a bit of a think.

Good luck

Well cars are a go.
Flags not bad at these.
Love nursery rhymes they are so political sometimes.
Aviation seems good.
Road signs absolutely
Love money but probably not Au$
17th C jobs not hopeful here but common sense may prevail
Tv ads hate them bears love them
