I'll post a few quiz questions every day until Christmas. Maybe.

It'll be a semi-irregular quiz.

Hopefully regular.

But probably more irregular.

I'll post a few quiz questions almost every day until Christmas.

Winner gets ............ a ........ time machine?

No.

There are no prizes. It's just a bit of fun.

I'll possibly try and keep to a certain format, like a music/movie question, a science/history question, and a general knowledge one. Something like that, maybe.

Maybe a Christmassy themed one too if I can think of any.

Look, it's not set in stone get off my back you fucking fucks.

Don't cheat  stern

If you know the answer, put it to the right hand side of your message so as to "hide it" from other people. Means they won't automatically look to it when scrolling down  upsmiley [ right ] [ / right ] I think are the tags. Otherwise it's something like [ align = right ] [ / align ]. I'd test it, but... y'know. I'm a busy guy.


Q1. Name 3 bands that Dave Grohl has drummed for.

Q2. If Jesus was born sometime in 7-2BC in Bethlehem, what language was most predominant and therefore most likely that he would have spoken?

Q3. Which has the most northerly point on a map? Hertfordshire, Gloucestershire, Carmarthenshire or Herefordshire



Enjoy.

Aramaic? Hebrew? Greek?  Multilingual.  "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?"  was Aramaic.("but with some Hebrew Characterisics")

1. Foo Fighters and  dunno
2. Aramaic
3. I guess Herefordshire, but not really sure, I know Carmarthenshire is south Wales since I went there in January so I'm confident in eliminating that one.  chinscratch

1. On Foos first album, Grohl did indeed do the drumming. He also drummed for Nirvana, QOTSA, Them Crooked Vultures and Probot, off the top of my head.

2. He spoke Aramaic, probably.

3. Herefordshire has the most northerly point of the counties.

Q3. 40 + 40 x 0 + 1 = ?

Are there any parenthsis implied or understood? 
i.e.
40 + (40 x 0 ) + 1 = ?
OR (40 + 40) x 0 + 1 = ?
OR 40 + 40 x (0 +1) = ?

I think you'd do the multiplication first if there's no brackets so

40 + (40 x 0 ) + 1 = ?
