Better than the alternative advice, which was to staple a teabag to your ear. :DD

All the more mind blowing when you consider that I think a lot of poetry is for pretentious tosspots.

I'm quite good with things that don't rely on short term memory. I memorised Jabberwocky over 40 years ago.

Great fun and educational as ever. Those who weren't there will never know which of us once hung around outside the temple in Salt Lake City for eight hours, or the reason why.

The book about S****tology I recommended is Going Clear by Lawrence Wright.

I have just thought of an excellent quiz round...

I just watched a classic 90s film with loads of famous actors in it. That's all I'm prepared to say at the moment.

Great fun last night as ever.

That question on the most common regnal name gets wonderfully complicated depending on how you phrase it. As Gaz said "British monarchs", the answer would be George, as I - VI were Kings after the Acts of Union. For post-Conquest monarch regardless of country, Henry ties with Edward with 8 (Scotland can only muster 6 Jameses, and most died in horribly funny ways), although Team H can sneak ahead if Henry the Young King counts (Henry II's "mini-me"). But once we take in everyone from Alfred, there are three Edwards before the Normans started numbering themselves and generally mucking things up.

The TL;DR is "Rex Factor" is awesome. Remember Aed!

Do you mean by this that "British monarchs" should only include monarchs after the Acts of Union?

I guess the issue is how do you define a "British monarch" - is it a "monarch over Britain" or "monarch in Britain"?

I'd take it to mean the former, but I think the question I was reading out meant the latter.

Love a bit of quiz pedantry, I get a perverse pleasure out of this kind of thing at our local pub quiz even though I know he's just going to say "quizmaster gets final word" ;)

I have found a weird quiz round,

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
It is a virtually unmodified quiz that I found. The questions are really easy (everyone would get over 90%) but there are some VERY strict time limits imposed by the quiz making it much trickier



It is out of 60ish points or so.

Should I divide the scores by any factor?

ie
2 (max points 30ish)
3 (max points 20ish)
4 (max points 15ish)
5 (max points 12ish)
6 (max points 10ish)

Or leave it out of 60ish?

I'd go with 3, so it gets out of 20. Sufficient to allow points for the additional difficulty, but not enough to heavily adjust the balance.

Unless I'm way behind by the time we get to it, and I need all the points I can get.

By the way, I have written a celebrity picture round in honour of a significant anniversary.

Hi everyone,

I've set up a meeting for tonight and posted details in the usual place.

Unfortunately I won't be there as I'm still pretty knackered from the weekend. I've tried to adjust the settings to allow anyone to share but I'm not 100% sure if it will work.

Have fun anyway and see you next week.

If we don't see you, have a good evening :)

Finally got the go ahead around 9pm, and after some minor domain issues everything was up and working by about 9:25 (woo!)

Stopped work about 9:40 and went straight to bed but spent what felt like another 2hrs+ trying to get to sleep (too much intensive screen time for my old brain :'( )
