Coming soon, New Years Day evening (which is normally as boring as fk) unless there are any objectors !

You will be asked 20 questions, which will require googling (unlikely anyone will know the answers off the top of their head). The first one to get back to me with 20 correct answers wins !

Up to you all if you want to chip in to some sort of prize fund.

:shock:

Hogmanay boring as fk? It's the best day of the year - Christmas without the relatives, kids, and dried up poultry. I'll be in the pub and probably too pished to make sure it's got wifi

Count me in. :grin:

Note !

This is New Years Day night, not new years eve night. Questions will be up at 7pm GMT, so any of you living on the other side of the world (may as well be Mars) will just have to get up earlier !

This isn't a quiz (as such). You won't know the answers, you will need to google !

More rules coming shortly.........

Well at least I'm keen - trying to turn up 24 hours early. :grin:

This does not bode well for answering your questions. Maybe I'd be as well just starting now.

No worries Ted.

Just a thought for you all to think about. Would this comp work better if the times were 'staggered' i.e you give me a time that you can do it and then the time taken is taken from that point ? Would that work better ?

There's 20 questions and I reckon they'll take about 30 mins to an hour to complete

I give you 20 questions

You give me 20 answers in one post

If you get just one of them wrong, you're out of the comp !

Winner is the first one who posts me the 20 correct answers.

I reckon it'll take about an hour

Seeing as you've now got plenty of time on your hands, here's a quick replacement:

Come up with a two word Google image search that returns the most identical pics on the first page. No limiting results with safesearch, quotes, size, type, color, url, etc either

ie Mona Lisa doesn't even come close

nor does sinus infection :lol:

[edit] Better still, don't enter a search term and click "I'm feeling lucky"

Sign up ! If we get more than 10, then we'll give it a go. This will require you all to be online at the same time and it'll probably be best to do it sometime in January. I suspect it'll take about an hour to complete as the answers will be pretty obscure and will require some pretty good googling skills.

State your name and preferred date/time (British)
