aka More Things to Do While Waiting for Death.

Here's a predictably obvious one to begin with. I managed a reasonable 10/12 and am now a fully-qualified death expert.

And the BBC's weekly sports quiz is always a winner.

why, you little...

Ditto, except 3 less on the death one. In my defense, some of those questions are phrased really piss-poorly.

Jesse Walter Bishop. Executed by the State of Nevada on October 27, 1979. He was convicted of murdering a man during a casino holdup in Las Vegas. He was the last man executed in Nevada's gas chamber.

When I get a chance to look at the others I'll let y'all know how I've done. :D

EDIT: 10/12 on the death one. Didn't even try the sports one since I know jack all about sports in the UK.

Mmm...it might be more fun if it could add up properly 'n'all...

It tallied my pathetic score as 4 out of twenty when it was actually a jaw dropping six.

Got five out of ten on the sport quiz though... so I'm consistently crap...

I've just noticed the cunning moderation of my above signature. I'd like to thank the rogue moderator responsible and also add- prospective editors, please note that a B-Job would go down just as well as a proper one. Quite possibly even more so.

Okay, here's a couple for you avid footie fans out there. (I think this is pinched from The Detectives, vaguely funny show with Carrott and Powell) The answers were UK football teams but I guess the first can be extended to American football, if you like.

1) How many teams can you think of whose full names begin and end with the same letter? Unfortunately I can't accept Super Saints as an answer but you get the idea.

2) How many different endings to football teams (i.e. United) are there in the league?

Somewhat fantastically, the mighty ASTON VILLA is an answer to both your questions, which must mean we're going do the double this season, or something equally fantastic...

I'll add Liverpool, Northampton Town, Dundee United and York City to that.
When you're younger, you can eat what you like, drink what you like and still climb into your 26 inch waist trousers and zip them closed. Then you reach that age, 24, 25, when your muscles give up, they wave a little white flag and then without any warning at all, you're suddenly a fat bastard.

Who is the only footballer, still playing, to have played in all four English divisions and all three Scottish divisions?

Can you name the only player who has appeared in The Premiership, The Championship, the First and Second Divisions, the Conference, the World Cup finals, The Inter Toto cup, and Champions League final?

A wild stab in the dark and because he's still going strong, Oh Teddy, Teddy, went to Man United but your still an "aunt" Sheringham?

I'm probably wrong.

I'll plump for the mighty Reds' very own (and current member of the Can We Not Knock It fantasy footy team) Stevie F, who I reckon achieved the feat with Welling, Notts County, Fulham, Ireland and of course Liverpool.

Dementia Test. This a quiz (sort of).

Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the
muscles. As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert. If you
don't use it, you lose it! Below is a very private way to gauge your
loss or non-loss of intelligence.

Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or
not. The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made
your answer. OK, relax, clear your mind and begin.

1. What do you put in a toaster?









Answer: "bread." If you said "toast," give up now and do
something else.
Try not to hurt yourself. If you said, bread, go to Question 2.



2. Say "silk" five times. Now spell "silk." What do cows drink?








Answer: Cows drink water. If you said "milk," don't attempt the
next question.
Content yourself with reading a more appropriate literature such as Auto
World. However, if you said "water", proceed to question 3.





3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is
made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a
black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?







Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said "green
bricks," why are you still reading these???

If you said "glass," go on to Question 4.





4. It's twenty years ago, and a plane is flying at 20,000 feet
over Germany (If you will recall, Germany at the time was politically
divided into West Germany and East Germany.) Anyway, during the flight,
two engines fail. The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is
also failing, decides on a crash landing procedure. Unfortunately
the engine fails before he can do so and the plane fatally
crashes smack in the middle of "no man's land" between East Germany and
West Germany. Where would you bury the survivors? East Germany, West
Germany, or no man's land"?









Answer: You don't bury survivors. If you said ANYTHING else,
you're a dunce and you must stop. If you said, "You don't bury
survivors", proceed to the next question.




5. Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from
London to Milford Haven in Wales . In London, 17 people get on the bus.
In Reading, 6 people get off the bus and9 people get on. In Swindon, two
people get off and 4 get on. In Cardiff , 11 people get off and 16
people get on. In Swansea , 3 people get off and five people get on. In
Carmathen, six people get off and three get on. You then arrive
at Milford Haven. What was the name of the bus driver?







Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! Don't you remember your own
name? It was YOU!!








PS: 95% of people fail most of the questions!!
In my experience, yes, some guests have the same longing for towels and bedlinen as zombies have for human flesh.
