Well, I've just joined and I figured that I'd share a quiz with you all.

It's a regular quiz so I'll update it every Monday except when I can't post here. The idea is that answers are PM'ed to me so that the quiz isn't spoilt; this could lead to there being an overall leaderboard.

I'll put the leaderboard here when there is a need for one.

I also hope that there will be more questions next time, as many which I thought of were unsuitable since they involved lists...

Provisional leaderboard:

JUS: 16

Also, I just realised that I made a boo-boo with the picture round. So I might make the quiz out of 21 instead of 22. :oops:
