With the decline and fall of that once-great institution and spiritual blogmother of this here publication, Michael5000's Wednesday Quiz, it is once again up to the antipodes to provide your weekly dose of Quiztime goodness. Thus the editors are proud to announce a new season of quizzes here at the Leaflocker, on a range of topics determined by fancy and if all else fails, trawling of wikipedia. The rules shall be as follows:
-There shall be 15 approximately weekly quizzes of 10 questions of equal weight, normally in the form of pictures stolen from the internet.
-Entry is open to all and sundry, provided that they are willing and able to submit their answers to the comments before the next quiz is posted.
-Entrants should solemnly vow to consult no other persons, nor to seek to obtain the answer or information leading to the answer from any source other than their own brain prior to entering their answers.
-Each entrant shall have up to one free point on one question each week provided that they admit their total ignorance of a subject moderately relevant to the question. (If the question is to name a pictured country in a map of Africa, the answer "Pass. I know nothing about African geography" would be acceptable, while "Free pass for me, I'm a squirrel" would not). Acknowledgement of ignorance will be taken as a declaration of intention to educate oneself on the aforementioned subject.
-The entrant with the highest total score taken from the aggregate of their best ten results for the season shall be declared the winner. This title may not be worth very much.
-Tie-breaks shall be determined by the aggregate of the best best eleven results, or if still tied, twelve results, et cetera.
-The editorship reserves the right to award bonus points for particularly clever or amusing answers, be they right or wrong, up to a total of ten points.
-Disputes on the rules will be entered into with any interested party, but any decision of the editorial team made ex cathedra shall be considered infallable.
With the ground rules set, let's get this show on the road. This week you, the entrant, must attempt to name each of these persons prominent in the field of leaping.
Post your answers below in accordance with your sense of honair.
