    As I said, I've a feeling there's some kind of logic/layout. I've not worked it out yet, but I am going to <laugh>

    I actually knew the answer to the last question, rare to say that, and my other was a guess on the Indian food :emoticon-0148-yes:

    Back once again for the weekly event that makes sure you read every single Guardian website story that features a cute animal as you know it is likely to crop up in the quiz at some point. You face 15 questions of varying levels of difficulty, topicality, seriousness and obscurity, and also a picture of Liz Truss again. (Spoiler alert, no bosom shot).

    https://www.theguardian.com/lifeand...uiz-general-knowledge-topical-news-trivia-146

    7 out of 15, should have been 10, but changed my mind (again).

    Enjoy

    A seven again, which seems to be my average on this one.
    Can't wait for the bbc one....:emoticon-0127-lipss
    (I'd be happy to get one tbh)

    Thanks for posting again @Blond Bombshell.

    Thought I was on for a major score when I got the first 5 questions right
    Went downhill from there
    Or as my wife is fond of saying peaked too early
    No idea what she's talking about :emoticon-0111-blush

    Well Snaggey, old chum, I'm afraid I've grabbed your medal of honour this week <doh>

    7 guesses, zilch.

    Not a proud moment <laugh>

    Only 5 of us did last Thursday guardian 15 question quiz, I'll keep an eye on how many do Friday bbc 7 question quiz today.

    our score: 3 / 7
    “There's still plenty

    Sadly , all 3 guesses.
    But not really sad, the thing to remember is that the things I dont know in these quizzes are of no consequence to my simple little life !

    I loved the tension of trying to guess the right answer on the 7th question after 6 fails. I was able to apply a brief bit of knowledge to who Carl Weathers last played for, as I was able to discount one of the teams, still failed <laugh>
