Minor distraction

Post by crownliquor on Fri Sep 03, 2010 11:37 pm

Ok, can't be bothered to write a quiz, so here's one question:

1 Who wrote the Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton - "Islands in the Stream" hit?

The correct poster offers a question of his own, on any subject they wish.

Was it "cocoa-cola" and was changed because the BBC wouldn't play it as it was advertising?

I'm not sure, so won't add a question in case it's wrong. Crown would know, he knows everything. Very Happy

It's no wonder test dislikes you mo. Very Happy

As test was indeed correct with his answer, he's asked me to set the next question.

3 Which double Tour De France winner died of cancer, aged 50 this week?

He is the man who fostered football in Brazil. Despite his name, he was in fact Brazilian but of Scottish parentage.

What do Bing Crosby, Bill Clinton, Prince William and Jack Nicklaus have in common?

Bing Crosby, Bill Clinton, Prince William and Jack Nicklaus all suffer(ed) from colour blindness. Bing Crosby doesn't have this affliction any more though.

Where, in England, are the 'Seven Sisters Towerblocks'?

There are seven buildings known as the Seven Sisters in Moscow, G, big ugly Stalinesque fukkers they are too.

But I've never heard of an English version. Some grim post-industrial dump, no doubt?

Know Sheffield has some infamous towerblocks, but your pic doesn't look like Sheffield. What part of England are we talking glad?

Yes, it is Rochdale....maybe a bit obscure.

Easier....Seven Network, Nine Network and Network Ten are all television companies covering which country?

Yes G, maybe a bit obscure...Imagine none of use recognising, er, Rochdale Rolling Eyes

Anyway, with garish logos like that those channels could only be from TV stations in Licker's favourite country, Australia. The land of genetic crims and irritating footballers like Scott McDonald, Harry thing and the rest.

More obscurity:
After the infamous Lagerlunda train crash of 1875 in Sweden, what did an investigation by Professor Alarik Frithiof Holmgren, a physiologist, conclude was to blame?

See, there's a theme here......colour blindness. 'Physiologist' was a clue, but I was looking up aspects of colour blindness the other day, for some reason.

Just trying to help you through the path to acceptance, Glad. Now, what colour are these smileys? Very Happy pig flower Spliff

I think Mustafa's actual surname is Attaturk, and therefore the answer is Turkey.

Listened to a very posh TDF guy talking with passion over this riders last day loss of the tour when he gave away 50 seconds to Lamond on the last day.Apparently they blamed it on the ponytail and thr bike frame.Last of the purists.Even though he was french he was not all that popular.
