Sometimes YOU Do a Quiz...

I had an actual quiz planned for today, but it just won't co-operate (again!), so instead of doing it half-assed, I'll save it for yet another week. Please accept my apologies and this video of me hurting my brain attempting to compete in an episode of University Challenge (from the comfort of my living room).

Needless to say, 'compete' is an unnecessarily strong word.

I hope to be along later in the day with a quiz for you guys to actually participate in, but just in case it doesn't happen, please accept these answers from last week's quiz.

1. The Weakest Link (UK)
2. Countdown (UK)
3. The Price is Right (Aus.)
4. University Challenge (UK)
5. 21 (USA)
6. RocKwiz (Aus.)
7. Jeopardy (USA)
8. A*mazing (Aus.)
9. Eggheads (UK)
10. Pointless (UK)

Excellent work by everyone involved, we obviously all watch far too much television. The only exception is Pointless, which you guys should check out, it's pretty cool, even it's it's no University Challenge, what with being pitched at humans and all. The M Cats win with 7.5, their half point is because they gave 3 synonyms for Eggheads and obviously knew the show, even if they couldn't come up with the name, Shaun and Mark share second with 7 points, so you guys can claim a technical victory if you like.

Blaugust Writing Prompts
1) Was there a TV show that you wanted to be on as a kid?
2) Who's your favourite artist, visual or otherwise?
3) What subject do you wish you knew more about?
