    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?

    Nobody responded 1st time although it wasn't the best time to put it, just before releasing the results of round 4

    Sounds good to me, I prefer the normal questions than the bonus questions.

    I've an idea for the next quiz... each person takes a turn as quiz master.

    Too many people though, there'd be some who'd have the advantage of getting to answer every round (as obvs we won't be answering questions we set ourselves). I wonder if anyone will get the reference in my answer to number 5.

    Yeah we have about 25 odd people that send in answers each week and it would give people an advantage. I can come up with more ideas for the next quiz though and have the format/layout etc to be different

    I think you're making the questions harder each week HC . Not confident about the answers I've sent in.

    They might not get all the questions correct though, even if they know the answer

    That was the plan, although I might be kind. One week, might be.

    What, you mean like pancakes?

    Pancake day and Quiz day rolled into one, not to mention my last day off as well although I've not really had a day off with the coursework with which I've done bugger all

    Default Round 5: The good and the not so good answers!

    Hot Chocolate (MattSpurs94) - This was the Snow Patrol question, HotChocolate would be a great name for a band!
    Snow Patrol, ugh thought you had more taste (Deisler26) - We've established this week that the great Deisler is not a fan of my music.
    Kiwi Stadium (Various) - There were many similar to this, and actually you weren't to far off!
    69 (Deisler26) - The only one to guess '69'
    100+ (Various) - Many people thinking that Barbra Streisend has been around too long.
    England, France, Sweden, Ukraine (Please be this group!) (ManUTactician247) - I wanted to give you a point for this, it made me laugh. But no, you didn't get a point.
    Juan Taco (hrbfcrule) - I'd like to meet him one day although the real answer was Kuno Becker.
    Spice Girls (deltablue) - Secret fan by anychance?
    Naked snow run (hursty2) - There were many variations of snow sports but this one stood out.
    Stade de Auckland (City2000) - Some great stadium names but this has to be the best one in my opinion.

    However the best answer so far, in the entire quiz goes to deltablue for this brilliantly thought out answer to number 9. Which I've only just got.

    Boca Juniors and Young Boys (deltablue) - I've only just got it, that is quality. Brilliant delta, I take my hat off to you.

    Should I put acidmonkey + his missus on the league table then

    I know a lot of random facts that are utterly pointless.

    I love the fact that NF kept battling his side when he was clearly wrong

    Alright Snake, I'll keep posting who's answer I haven't received just in case I don't get all of them for whatever reason (which is what happened a week or two ago)

    Been without internet for almost a week so couldn't send in for the last round. It just got back now. Slow a stiff turd's exit, but at least it's back.

    Would just have gotten my usual 3-5 points anyway so doubt I missed out on being a winner

    Only one or two points for me this coming week, so you'll probably have at least me beaten deltablue.

    I'm usually half-decent at quizzes, but there are too many oddballs in these questions for me.

    A great week for me as I knew the majority of those questions (makes a change!)...well, apart from the damn reality tv show question and Hollyoaks question. Confident of at least 7-8 questions that are right

    Knew Hollyoaks as it's mentioned in trailers beforehand when I'm watching the Simpsons, maybe should avoid such non-sporting UK-specific questions in future though.

    Hollyoaks was one that was UK specific yes, but I think it would be hard to not avoid it the odd time.

    X-Factor US, Harry Potter, the song lyrics, World Snooker Champion could be known anywhere in the world in my opinion, granted Hollyoaks isn't but like I said it would be hard to make sure every question was answerable for everyone.

    O mighty Quizmaster, I had an idea to run past your great mind, maybe we should have a bonus point for the best answer, just one a week shouldn't devalue the quiz much and make willy answers for questions you don't know more worthwhile.
    From deltablue, I like the idea and I'm willing to put it in if there wont be a revolt against me

    Although the same person can't win it twice and it's based on my opinion?

    Most Macc Lads songs are just the music from one song with their lyrics replacing the original, usually about sex and beer.

    Better than starting him with he's a poof. Failure with girls is my favourite.

    Default This is an important announcement.

    I thought it would be best to leave this until today so that it didn't cause any difference for people who hadn't sent in answers to those that already had but I decided to remove Question 5: Which player scored the winning goal in the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final 2011? This is because in my eyes the 'winning' goal is the one that puts the team in front. The game finished USA 2-4 Mexico and therefore the 3rd goal was the 'winning' goal but after considering it mid-week I decided that I did that based on my opinion and others might see it differently.

    Pablo Barrera was the correct answer but as I said I removed it because people could take the question differently. I have added a 'bonus point' in this weeks round, so there will be a possible 13 points next week to make up for the possible 11 points this week.

    Sorry for any inconvenience caused, blah, blah, blah. I hope you forgive me
