*Insert Quiz Title Here 2* - Final Results!

Post by euan707 » Wed Nov 30, 2016 6:00 pm

I can't tell you how tempted I am just to quote the introduction from the previous quiz and just let you all get on with it.

Good Evening and welcome to the special 2016 edition of *Insert Quiz Title Here*, the "Hit"* quiz from last year. Like with everything from 2016, this quiz is more painful, less funny and drags on for longer than it should. So, familiar ground, right?

Returning are all your favourite coloured questions, along with some new rules (made up of course as I go along) and new bonus rounds. Together, this should provide an experience which is different enough to convince you it isn't just copy and pasted, but similar enough to not actually be exciting.

As with last time, I'll provide a round of 10+ questions covering specific themes. This time, however, the themes aren't themes at all, they're months. Specifically, months of this year. Throughout the quiz, we'll eventually cover the whole year, reminiscing about how eton mess it actually was. To enter, simply PM me your answers. After the round ends, there'll usually be a bonus round, which can earn you... more points?

Similarly, bonus points make a return from the previous quiz, however who knows what they'll be used for this time round...

Last quiz took 3 months, we're a little tighter for time this time round, so make sure to keep an eye on each round's deadline. Wouldn't want you losing points, would we? I would

*As in, it made you want to hit yourself in the wrist with a sharp knife

Round 1
[/b]
-“Lots of people go mad in January. Not as many as in May, of course. Nor June. But January is your third most common month for madness.”
General
1. In January, the World Health Organisation announced an outbreak of which mosquito driven disease? (1)

2. A 10 year old boy living in Lancashire was investigated by police after mistakenly writing what? (2)

3. Which country created un-ease after several breaches of UN protocol regarding weapons, including firing a ballistic missile into the sea? (2)

4. How many days total did these three months have? (2)

Death
[/size]
Can you unscramble these to find the names of people who died in the first quarter of this year? For bonus points, can you name the exact date they each died on?

5. IDD AWV BIO E (1)

6. TYOA EWRG RN (2)

7. ELA PRR HEE (3)

8. GEEOG ARMTN RI (4)
Bonus
9. On which day was the 1000th page reached on HDYFRN? (5)

10. 10. Name a date on which Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” was number 1 on the UK singles chart. (3)


Oh look, a new colour. That looks exciting. Green questions are always worth bonus points. If you answer incorrectly, or fail to answer them at all, the points are put into a "bonus pot", which will come into play later in the quiz.

The deadline for Round 1 is 1000 Sunday 4th December. Good Luck.

I've had 6 entries so far, and already made my first gooseberry fool up of the quiz. Anyone who spots it gets bonus points.

And that's time on Round 1. Before we see how well you did, let's look at the answers.

-“Lots of people go mad in January. Not as many as in May, of course. Nor June. But January is your third most common month for madness.”
General
1. In January, the World Health Organisation announced an outbreak of which mosquito driven disease? (1)
The Zika Virus


2. A 10 year old boy living in Lancashire was investigated by police after mistakenly writing what? (2)
That he lived in a terrorist home, instead of a terraced home


3. Which country created un-ease after several breaches of UN protocol regarding weapons, including firing a ballistic missile into the sea? (2)
North Korea


4. How many days total did these three months have? (2)
First gooseberry fool up of the quiz. Each round is focused on 3 months of the year, this being the first three. All of these question are based on January, February and March. However the quote used at the start of the round suggests otherwise. My fault entirely, and I awarded full marks to both answers.

Death
[/size]
Can you unscramble these to find the names of people who died in the first quarter of this year? For bonus points, can you name the exact date they each died on?

5. IDD AWV BIO E (1)
David Bowie


6. TYOA EWRG RN (2)
Terry Wogan


7. ELA PRR HEE (3)
Harper Lee


8. GEEOG ARMTN RI (4)
George Martin

Bonus
9. On which day was the 1000th page reached on HDYFRN? (5)
Monday 4th January


10. 10. Name a date on which Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” was number 1 on the UK singles chart. (3)
Anywhere from 12th January to 18th March. No one got this one.
At the end of the first round, the bonus pot has 15 points in it.


Let's take our first look at the leaderboard.
1st - GuitarHero - 15(5)

2nd - Mr. EE - 14

3rd - PiGreat - 13

4th - Edd - 10(3)

5th - Ironhide - 8

6th - Garf - 3(5)
As with last time, normal points are displayed normally, bonus points are within brackets, and don't affect your ranking unless you're tied.

So, what now? Well, to keep you ticking over until the next round goes up tomorrow, have a bonus challenge.

Bonus 1

Say something nice. Points will be awarded dependent on how polite you are and how much you bribe me with
