999_Springs's nearly impossible quiz! (Now Edited)

Postby 999_Springs » Fri Jan 23, 2009 6:39 am

I don't think that anyone has ever done stuff like this on these forums before, but I think it might be a bit of a change from those silly easy-peasy 11-plus tests and football predictions and other stuff that floats around in the off-topic section.

The quiz is all multiple choice but be warned - there are two questions where the answer isn't any one of the options.

Anyway, whoever wants to take part can post their answers here (or PM me if you really don't want anyone copying your answers, but from the nature of the quiz, it probably won't happen anyway). Whoever gets the highest number of questions correct might get a prize...

Note: anyone caught using Google/Wikipedia/any other internet website which may provide useful information may risk being dissected atom by atom.
(That's just a joke.)
