    Welcome back, Sofa, hope you had a nice, and well deserved holiday.
    Might just come down for that, it's my birthday Sunday, so'll be nursing a hangover for sure, but that may just take the pain away, I'll rope Upsetter and Ms into this.

    Anyone coming to this? I've been reading random reference books all weekend and am primed. Unless you're on my team you may as well forget it! ;)

    I fear some questions may be in German but it's got to be worth a look.

    Yeah that's a strong possibility! Fortunately German was the subject i was best at in school. All bases covered.

    Edit: Just as i was typing this, Mr Sofa himself called to request the use of my printer...TO PRINT THE QUIZ QUESTIONS!! FOOL! If i didn't have such a god-awful memory i really would win this. Curses.

    Ditto.
    I know there was food, and there was certainly beer, then it goes fuzzy.

    We came 2nd!!! Ok, so there were only 3 teams in total, but still..

    Launching quiz nights at the Lamb on the same night as Top Gear/Hammond and the Big Brother Final was probably not the best idea! It was, however, a very good test-run. Mr Sofa not only came up with some interesting, varied questions, but also turned out to be an extremely entertaining quizmeister! Top stuff. Highly recommended for next time.

    One of the questions that we all got wrong was 'What is the name of the person who currently holds the 'best-seller' spot in both the fiction and non-fiction charts?' (..i think that's what it was..) Now i'd been in the queue at Sainsbury's a bit earlier, and whilst waiting i cast a cursory glance at the books behind me. I noticed that there were 2 books by the same fella, and that he had a Scandinavian name, but being shortsighted and forgetful i had no chance. I offered the fact that he was from Scandinavia, or at least had a name that was, but the ruthless Sofa denied me any pointage! It was Hal Iggulden by the way.

    Isn't his name Conn Iggulden? Or am I thinking of somebody else?

    I think one of the books was co-written with Conn Iggulden, either that or the other way round.

    Another of the questions was 'What does HTTP stand for?'. Now i really should have known this, but my brain was reluctant to offer the full answer. I knew it was Hyper Text **** Protocol, but couldn't for the life of me think of the 3rd word. I politely requested half a point for a good effort, but again was denied! Be prepared...Sofa rules with an iron fist.

    Oh, and in answer to Miss T, the quizzes will be on the last Sunday of the month apparently..
