Revenge of the Great NE Quiz!

Recommended Posts

It's been almost a year since the last one, so I thought it was about time it was ressurected. For those unfamiliar with this, uh, it's a quiz. Digest these rules, mortal!




The Rules


- The poster posts 10 questions that you lot will have to try and answer.

One correct answer per person per round, please. That means more people can get involved. If your guess is incorrect, you can have another go.


- If there are still answers remaining after 24 hours, anyone can answer regardless if they've already got one right or not.


- Post your answer in this thread. First person to answer each question correctly gets the point. Use any means necessary to find the answer, Google/Wikipedia is acceptable.


- Accessible questions, please. No "what is my mom's favourite food". They also don't have to be proper questions if you wish, you can post soundclips and get people to guess what game their from, or post an image where people have to guess what movie it's from. Use your imagination.


- A different poster will do the questions for each round, starting with me. PM me or post in this thread if you wish to do the questions for a future round - the next one will start after all 10 questions have been correctly answered. It doesn't take long to think of questions, and usually they're all answered within a few hours, so you only need a few spare moments to verify each one.


- I shall keep the scoreboard on this first post, and update after each round with the scores.




Anyway, let's get started.


Round 1:


1) What are the names of the 3 playable races in Starcraft? - Dan Dare used his knowledge of awesome RTS games to answer this correctly. It is indeed Starcraft.


2) Who was the British prime minister from 1976-1979? - Noodleman got it, it was James Callaghan


3) Which airport has the code DTW? - Shino used the power of Google to find out that it is Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport


4) Which public holiday was celebrated in the UK for the first time in 1978? - Twilight_Link got it, it was May Day.


5) Who said in 1995, "Well there were 3 of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded"? - conzer16 got it, woohoo. It was Princess Diana.


6) How many Mario Kart games have been made? Also name them. - Jordan did a sly ninja edit to get the correct answer, don't forget about GP.


7) Name the song and the artist. - Ninja Mullet got it, it is Bob Marley - Jammin'


8) Name the TV show. - Rokhed00 used his knowledge of great daytime television shows to get this, it is Quincy.


9) Name the wrestler. - Should've known CVD would get this, it is indeed Randy Orton.

5) If you add the number of series of 24 and the number of the series of the Simpsons, what would be the answer?


Number of aired seasons of 24 = 5

Number of aired seasons in America = 18 (2 episodes in)

Thus 23.
