Each week, I'm going to post a 10 question quiz on this thread. There will be a different topic each week, so if you want to suggest future topics feel free to suggest them in this thread. I'd advise you to post your answers as close as possible to the deadline to prevent other people copying.

1) The deadline each week is specified with the quiz, if you post your answers or edit your post after this deadline, your score will count as 0 for that quiz. I will normally give you a week to post your answers.
2)Each quiz will consist of 10 regular questions and 1 tie-breaker question. You need to answer all of them.
3) You CAN research your answers. After all, I can't do anything to stop you and research itself is a skill.
4) The person who gets the most regular questions right each week wins. If there's a draw, the winner will be who I think has given the most entertaining/amusing/interesting/original answer to the tie-breaker question. If you just give a 1 word answer for the tie-breaker, I'm unlikely to pick you above the other person.
5) Each week, you get points based on how well you did in that quiz, this will translate as;
1st place = 15 points
2nd place = 10 points
3rd place = 6 points
4th place = 3 points
5th place = 1 point
6th & below = 0 points
6) Any time I use the word country, it means any full member state or non-member observer state to the UN

Quiz no.: 2
Topic: rivers
Deadline: Saturday 26th July 2014 11:59PM BST (DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED BY 24 HOURS)

1) What is the name given to the point where a river begins?
2) Which country has the longest stretch of the River Nile within it?
3) How many countries does the Rhine flow through?
4) Napo, Tigre and Xingu are all tributaries of which river?
5) What is the 3rd longest river in the world?
6) Which river is used as the boarder between the English counties of Devon and Cornwall?
7) Which river is this?

8) What does FEQP stand for? (remember this is on the topic of rivers, not other things that happen to use the initials FEQP)
9) Is this a river, a canal or a flood?

10) Which weapon caused this to happen?

bonus) Would you be more wet if you fell into a river or a lake?

Research is a skill

But researching quick questions definitely isn't. All you need to do is copy paste images or questions into Google for every answer every week if you can be bothered.

Without research, my take on the one unsolved question:

7) looks like it's the Brabantian lion over the Dutch tricolor, so this might be a dutch or Flemish municipality is my guess - the only Dutch city in Brabant I can name out of the top of my head is Aalburg, so it must be Aalburg.

EDIT: It's not.

And this just has to be everyone's favourite flag:

Here's the answers of this week.

Quiz no.: 1
Topic: flags
Deadline: Friday 18th July 2014 11:59PM BST

1)Which country's flag is this?

That's Kenya's flag.
2) Which symbol was the main feature of the German flag between 1935 and 1945?
The swastika
3) Which is the only flag of a country that is legal to burn in Denmark?
The flag of Denmark itself.
4) Which flag has more stars on it, Alaska's or the EU's?
Alaska's flag has 8 stars. The EU's flag has 12 stars. The correct answer is the EU.
5) What number are you left with if you take away the number of stars of the USA's flag by the number of US states?
The USA's flag has 1 star per state (50 stars and 50 states), so the answer is 0.
6) What do the flags of Nepal and Ohio have in common?
Unlike most flags, the flags of Nepal and Ohio are not rectangular in shape. Any reference to the shape of the flag will count as a correct answer.
7) What's this the flag of?

8) What is the only English ceremonial county without a flag?
Bristol has no flag.
9) In motorsport, what does this flag mean?

Your car is damaged. This is dangerous and/or interfering with the race. Go to the pits to get this fixed. (or words to that effect)
10) Which country's navy uses this flag?


So, the scores for this week are:
Apollo 3
Master ARC (without research) 6
Master ARC (with research) 8 <-- Cheshire East is not a ceremonial county
6th Army Group 4 <-- got Q10 mixed up with the bonus question
HeadlessChicken 6 <-- please put question numbers with your answers next time
Mr Oobling (without research) 3
Mr Oobling (with research) 8
Gnullbegg 0 <-- only answered Q7 and the bonus
MysteryManBall 7
Moros 8
Lord William Lannister 10

So therefore, this week the points go to;
1) Lord William Lannister 15 points
2) Moros 10 points <-- wins tie-breaker because this player answered the bonus question
3) Master ARC 6 points <-- 2nd in tie-breaker because this player acknowledged that the bonus question existed
4) Mr Oobling 3 points <-- last in tie-breaker because this player never answered or acknowledged the existence of the bonus question.
5) MysteryManBall 1 point

I'll have the next quiz up somewhen within the next 24 hours.

How can you score when some people researched and others didn't?

hmm, maybe I'll introduce 2 high-scores, 1 with research, 1 without. We'll see what other people think first, but it would need people to be honest. Also, some people didn't specify if they researched or not, so it makes it harder to do 2 sets of high-scores.
