Thank you @Cleoriff 

I think the word you are looking for for today`s WRQ is "challenge" yahoo

Some of the questions I just stumbled across; others I had already planned... so tried to give a good mix of categories and questions today, but admit a couple of Thinking head-scratchers.

@Mi-Amigo 

I actually love the silliness of the collective names of animal groups.

Murder, Crash, Unkindness, Conspiracy etc etc...... really daft when you think they could just be a flock or a herd... rofl
