Right, same rules as last week, open to all and Hils, if you do have one planned please accept my apologies for putting this one up:


1. In what year did Einstein formulate the theory of Relativity?

2. From which country does the mazurka originate?

3. Which former SUFC player was born in Cape Town?

4. What is Robin's real name in Batman and Robin?

5. What is the atomic number for gold?

6. Who is the oldest of the Tracy brothers in Thunderbirds?

7. Who owned Pikachu?

8. On which farm did Worzel Gummidge live?

9. In T.S. Eliot's "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats", what is the name of the Railway Cat?

10. What is Spencer Prior's middle name?

A few poached from other sources there - Good luck!

3. Eddie Firmani

Think Andy Harris might have been born there as well, but he doesn't count as a footballer.

You're right YB, thought the Southend ones would go first! No BB it wasn't Alan, IIRC he was the youngest.

See guys, this is how you do it. 100% correct - well done! Used to quite fancy Scott Tracey when I was little and didn't know any better!

That just leaves nos. 4, 7 and 10.

No he/she didn't! Four different people, one of them a girl! **goes and digs out Dark Knight Returns*** Jason Todd died, actually died. Dead. Kaput.

Dick Grayson and Justin, yes - Spencer Justin Prior - who'd have thought it?! Ash is also correct, but can you give his surname just to tidy things up nicely?

Hils, did you notice that those who are not allowed to do your quizzes and make such a fuss haven't exactly covered themselves in glory here?
