    brilliant job from Pangaea! "HotChocolate!" is also a brilliant name for a celebrity baby. If I'm ever famous I promise I'll name my child that. No matter how much it scars them...

    Right, on to the questions

    Answers sent, I think I've gotten 10/12 having checked a couple I wasn't sure of. Of course I may well have gotten wrong one or two that I was sure of so who knows! Question 3 is annoying, I thought I'd made a really good guess but turns out I was nowhere near! I had to give a comedy answer for Question 6 though (although it's the obvious comedy answer)

    Sent in a mixture of certainly correct answers and stupid answers where I don't know the actual answer.

    5 is actually a couple more than I thought I'd get for the last round. This week looks better, though I'll probably drop a few, and without any more really hard weeks I could get back in the mix.

    Today was a good example at how competitive I am in quizes, as we did one in college, thinking up questions in teams and throwing some at other teams, we didn't think up of hard ones, and threw one team an especially easy one to start, and after another I grabbed a notebook with the questions on from the girl who was choosing and asking them, and just in time as I went for the tough ones, and we beat the team we were very easy on by a point.

    I'm doing alright so far, better than I thought I would! Pangaea's answers really are fantastic, he should get some bonus points just for comedy value.

    Out of interest what question was on the TV?

    You put Maltesers for Question 6, the answers were: M&M, Minstrels or Mars.

    61% of the questions answered in Round 3 were correct. Which means going by statistics, the Rounds are getting harder.

    Or the more likely option, you lot are getting dumber

    Just a heads up to Nobby_McDonald and everyone else for that matter, Nobby tried to be smart and made a fool of himself and yes I will be revealing all on Tuesday

    Allright, after a pause from internet going AWOL, I've sent it in. Should have more than 0, but not much. The only question I'm 100% sure about it the capital as I have a friend living there.

    Don't worry, that person will be named and shamed tomorrow

    Flamers, you definitely gave the wrong impression first week. You got a score of 9 but followed that up with a 2 and 5 (and obviously this weeks result, which I know muhahahaha).

    It's not me, as I haven't entered for two weeks. I've got bored so won't enter now, ever again most probably. I'll still look in for people's results just so I can have some laughs.

    Just about to upload them now!

    ------

    Had an idea for Round 10, the last round. Instead of the usual 10 questions with a bonus questions how about 20 questions? No bonus question, it could change the league table dramatically and with it being the final week, always got to go out with a bang?

    Default Round 4: The good and the not so good answers!

    I'm sure all of these would do a better job than a woman *goes into hiding for 3 weeks*

    Shane Warne
    (SRL88) – Australian prime minister.
    Kangeroo Jack (rancer890) – Australian prime minister.
    Foster advert blokes (various) – Australian prime minister.
    Crocodile Dundee (AK22) – Australian prime minister.
    Ned Kelly (SnakeXe) - Australian prime minister, because me moaned about it.

    Torquebows (hursty2) – Torquays nickname, it made me laugh and does deserve a mention!
    Broussia Dortmund 6-0 Manchester City (deltablue) - Not a bad guess at the SuperBowl score!
    Cap Collector (jackripper) - The South African all time leading capped player!
    11 players (jackripper) - That is true to be fair, but not what I was looking for. (Question 5)
    Didn't click the link so I'll say a Morris Minor (jackripper) - I have a feeling our Jack was a bit grumpy

    --------

    And I would just love to thank you all that decided to put N as the capital of Nepal although only 1 of you claimed it to be right (Flamers)

    Default Nobby_McDonald's **** Up

    7. In what year were FC KØbenhavn founded?
    Notts County are the oldest club formed in 1862 so I will say it was any year after 1862, which makes my answer correct

    You really shouldn't have said that to me, I live in Sheffield, I think I'll know which team is the oldest club formed:

    Sheffield FC formed in 1857 (according to Wikipedia, 24th October)
    Notts County formed in 1862, (correct me if I'm wrong) the oldest football league club and the oldest professional club.

    That'd be a fanstastic nickname if everyone was familiar with Gears of War. Since a lot aren't then it probably wouldn't go down so well

    What about my superbowl answer? Hardly hilarious but surely worth a mention as it was obviously not serious and amusingly wrong on so many levels? Plus career nods are made of win. Just be lucky I didn't put my West Brom side hammering the Blades to reach the playoff, which I nearly did but thought would be a bit cruel.

    Four points is more than I expected.

    Had no idea København are that young. Though now when you mention it, I seem to recall something about it from the back rows of my brain.

    Edit: Those questions look bloody nightmarish

    "F.C. Copenhagen was founded in 1992, as a superstructure between 15-time Danish football champions Kjøbenhavns Boldklub (KB) and seven-time Danish football champions Boldklubben 1903"

    I remember reading that ages ago, I have a very, very strange love affection with FC
    København, I should go to the doctors about it. So I knew the answer and thought that some may know it (with it being recent,ish).

    I was only about 80 years out on the København question. Never would have gussed they were that young a club.

    Looks tough this week. At first glance I think I only know 2 of them.

    I knew about 2/3 of the answers. The rest I had to check, I'm so glad I'm writing the questions and not answering them, I'd suck so much.

    Maybe I could do a round up of how many points I'd get at the end of the Quiz?

    I knew the Kobenhavn one because of looking them up when they went on that good (for them) Champions League run a couple of seasons ago.

    Sent my answers, and having checked, I think I may just have gotten 8 as predicted! Assuming I didn't get any of the names wrong or confuse real sports for demo sports for the Winter Olympic sports of course.

    Sent, mix of a few I knew, genuine but long shot guesses (some so long a shot that they had travelled from the other side of the world) and a few 'comedy' answers. I bet I got 8 or 9 on the last regular question, mega mean that one.

    Sorry Makonnen, I actually did get yours and remember reading them this morning. Not sure why I haven't put them on.

    I'll put your results into the table and updated for next week

    You got 4 points, if you were wondering

    The stupid thing is I do actually know Sheffield are the world's oldest club and they even play in Newcastle Town's league.

    Even so my answer is correct in terms of year so I want my point.
