Thank you @Cleoriff and @pgn for your posts.

Not quite the reaction I was expecting, although I admit a couple of the events in the last year in the quiz

might not be quite so familiar...

Looking forward to your answers later.

Good luck.

Thank you @TallTrees 

There might be another "Not" multi-choice quiz in the New Year.

In the meantime, good luck with the End of the Year Quiz
