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? :D

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 :)

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

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

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. :applause:

6. British Boob Council (I wish) British Broadcasting Council (real answer I think)

7. 99

8. 952

10. Icey, cold, snowy, white, pointless, suicidal, idiotic, fast, dangerous sports

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