This little quiz is just to pass the time. I call it "Are you paying attention?"
The answers to all the questions can be found in yesterday's postings on the FCF. It is not difficult so only 5 points a question :-D

1. What weighs 1700kg?

2. Where is a much fatter O ring useful?

3. What gives you a “raring to go” feeling?

4. Which Rover might you have found on the floor?

5. What do these come from?

6. What was so melodramatic?

7. Which World Champion made an appearance?

8. What made VE day possible?

9. What went for an unscheduled trip in a microwave?

10. What was declared as being wasted?

I try and refine the top of the head stuff, but picking anything out of yesterdays hi-fi conversation is going to be a bit tricky for me if that's where I was on the right track :-D I'm as ignorant on such things as the bloke going into the hi-fi shop on not the nine o'clock news.

Hi guys, I'm a proud new owner of a 2017 DS5 Performance line and unfortunately my spare key got spun in the microwave for 30secs (Long Story) so now I'm in need of reprogramming the new replacement which I've bought.
Does anyone know how much these things cost or where to even start as I have no clue?
Outstanding

I'm after a "World Champion" 5 pointer and recognise that within the posts for yesterday a number of candidates could qualify. Now reading Steve's little piece here...one world champion popped into my head...…

Its within this bit of posting

Recently had my son and his Chinese better half with him, passed on a lot of Chinese music to her and we watched the DVD and she translated - although born in England she lived in Japan for a few years and speaks Japanese and Mandarin.
As I suspected the dialogue is Japanese and the commentary is Chinese.

Lee told me of when she first went to Japan, she would go to restaurants with a colleague. The staff would ask Lee what she wanted and she had no idea what they were saying and pointed to her colleague, a six foot tall blonde Australian girl who had been there years and spoke perfect Japanese. Who they ignored and continued to ask Lee, as she looks as though she should speak Japanese.
At one time Newcastle Diamonds had a very fine speedway team and a succession of world champions from the legendary Ivan Mauger (NZ) to Ole Olsen (Denmark) and Anders Michanek (Sweden). Not surprisingly those names don't appear in Steve's paragraph. I did take an interest in Speedway at that time though, and England had a World Champion in Michael Lee, his surname liberally distributed in Steve's post!
