And there was me thinking Snowy might not win on a religion day after seeing WB's score this morning. #-o

That's what 8 points looks like when your browser crashes the first time and the game thinks you're still dithering over the questions.

Take a good hard look at that sorry motherfucker and don't let it happen to you.

It's incredibly annoying that despite owning one of the boardgames mentioned today I still managed to get the answer wrong. It's been a fair while since I played it, in fairness.

Some stopping dead and thinking WTF today though, was bloody amazed to get a clean sweep.

Besides, I will forget a day, drop the ball, something will go awry. I am off on my hols at the end of the month so Mr Metronome needn't get worried :)

Nothing quite like visiting the quiz page first thing and instantly knowing you have zero chance of finishing first today :lol:

Edit: yup.

Who was number 406 in 2003 in the country and western charts? Oh yeah, I remember that!

Some day Snowy we need to have a talk about your stellar performance every time we have a religion round :lol:
Both my parents were/are very religious C of E true believers.
Interesting tale. I was going to ask you if you had been raised C of E, or some other denomination. I myself was raised in a "born again" evangelical church, but had a lot of exposure to C of E culture in my schools (which were both C of E schools). C of E ways were all a bit alien compared to how I'd been raised in my own church. In my late teens I got involved (by my own choice) in an even more "hardcore" evangelical church, which I stuck with for years, but in my early 20s I suddenly came to the realisation that I rejected it all! That had been coming for years; I just hadn't had the courage to admit it to myself or anyone else before. Then, after a year of that, I "found God" again when I was 24, didn't know which church denomination to join (kinda did a tour of them all) before finally meeting my wife, a Presbyterian, who sold me on her theology, and that's where I've been ever since. I'm pretty sure I could win any religious round of this quiz now. ¬_¬

If Snowy doesn't win this month, it will be a travesty. A travesty I say!

I'm going to be really annoyed if he misses any days...

BOLLOCKS - the Mozambique answer sounded oxymoronic so I changed it, and then I had the Togo one but changed my answer again because of some misguided instinct...

I am frequently staggered that I remember lots of the old testament stuff that I probably last heard about in a Sunday-school class in the 1970s. I have been somewhere between agnostic and atheist since about age 13 (now 49) but it still sticks.

I am off on my hols on the 29th, heading to Marrakesh, so will be at the mercy of public wifi and on my phone. I will try...
