In around 4 hours from the time of this post I will set a general knowledge quiz.

Those that wish to take part have fair warning of the time.

There will be 25 general knowledge questions and contestants will have only 15 minutes from the time that the post is made to answer as many as possible and send their answers to me via U2U.

I will try and make the questions diverse so as not to favour any nation and answers will be short so you will have time.
The time limit is to stop members from looking on the web for answers.

SO LOOK FOR THE QUIZ ON THIS THREAD IN AROUND 4 HOURS.


GOODLUCK.
