Go for it.  I kind of liked it watching to see if you would win or place or whatever.  Your level is so much higher than any of us, it is fun to watch how you do.

I am going to give it a go again.  Warming up on that link just above.  Even on those easy quizzes I can already see I have the same weaknesses.  But I do love a quiz.  I love it when the answer to a question is right or wrong.  Usually my life questions have no clear answers and certainly nothing that is right or wrong.   Laughing

Thanks for making this sticky Slapshot - much appreciated.

I guess I'll have to admit that I only got 8 in this weeks quiz! I blame it on over excitement and first week nerves.............. Wink

I can understand that, your life is little more complex than mine probably.  But it is stuff you already know (or don't), so it is "merely" a matter of getting on line twice a month or so, doing a few quizzes, then forget about it.  I mean in the Falklands it might have been a bit hard, but on dry mainland, it should be easier (if that is where you are).  It makes it a bit more of a pleasure for us all, as we have utterly no chance to beat you, so all we can do is watch to see what you do.  Rather have you win than some nameless alias from some group I know nothing about.

Of course I don't mean to hassle you, as I have almost nothing to do with you, except on this forum.  It just makes it more fun for us all to watch.  Will he miss one this week, will the others catch him, that sort of thing.  But no big deal.

I sort of wish Bartali and Huw also joined us, maybe even Maffy, but I guess that would be unlikely.  In any case, I am warming up with last year's quiz and the Fun One and should be starting my attempt to repeat (if you don't join us) this year.  Highly unlikely, but then again ….

Maybe SS shouldn't be encouraged to play the Quiz - gives the rest of us a chance to win!!!!!  Wink
Well done SS!

I thought about that, since you are obviously right.  I would also like Maffy and Huw and Bartali and all the rest of us to play as well.  And I do know that it means none of the rest of have a chance to win our league.   Sad

But I guess I think that we can compete with each other for second place and get nearly the same "thrill" if we win.  It is mostly a test of ourselves anyway, I get excited if I ever get a perfect score,  bounce
and wonder how I wasted all these years following cycling if I miss a few questions. Embarassed

Fortunately I have an excuse, memory loss as I get into my elder years.

Still, it is only a way to pass the time until the season starts in March.  And good luck to us all.  Besides, SS might just lose interest, and one of us can win.

So that means we are all competing for third.  Unless one of you two quits.  Still, it will be good to see how we all do.

Last year, I gave up on posting my scores since anyone can see them one week later anyway.  I doubt I will post this year either, life just seems to be full of things I have to do and if I can eliminate one I am well off.

However … I just did the first three (catching up with yet another thing) and MUST share a small fact.  Having got 15 on the first one, for one brief moment, until I did the second one (ran out of time for the first time ever), I was equal to Slapshot, and co-leader of the whole competition.  It was a moment of delight and pride that I just had to share.  I am normally not very egotistic, as I know how much I don't know.  But today was a moment of wonder.  Voila.

Now back to trailing Slapshot and desperately trying to be so good that I beat everyone else, unless Bartali stays interested.
