    Tip for entrants. If Google (other search engines are available) fails to provide a suitable answer when you provide the question, search for each of the answer options in turn. When one of them takes you to the book's blurb, you know you have the right answer.
  10. It's not getting the answers wrong that concerns me.
    It's that pie-eyed jock not pulling my name out of the hat. :winkrazz:

    Another helpful hint, never put Catholic Church and Abomination into a search engine, there would appear to hundreds of thousnads of Abominations to them!

  12. Now now, its the taking part that counts. That, and the quiet feeling of self-satisfaction that you answered the questions properly. You can hold your head high and look others in the face, proud in that knowledge.

    On the other hand, this is arrse... Lickspittles the lot of 'em, especially those who don't offer to lend me a copy. The online reviews are naff as well. Hah, hope they have a cardiac whilst reading it on the bog, that'll larn 'em.
