No, there is not a QI-type question [where the answer is not what what most people think] this time but a couple of questions are a little bit tricky and some might need to think about them...
Look foward to pm with your answers.

Be interesting to see how you get on with the King question...
As for "Space", this has been one of the most popular categories with White Room Quizzers...
