There's a bloke that is making a series of short not-so-general knowledge quizzes on youtube. There are no celebs, pop groups, no sport, no current affairs, but plenty of old-fashioned book learning, and they've got a decent difficulty level. It's timed, so unless you break the rules and pause you can't look up stuff on google. I usually score 4-6 out of ten.

I thought some of you might like to give them a try.

60 second quiz #1

(no cheating, please!)

Ouch. A fairly disappointing 3/10.

A nice 6/10 - and I really ought to have known what a Pentland Javelin is as well!

8/10 - I thought a vexilogist was someone who studies the effect Trump has on people, and I didn't know about the date of the olympics because in my mind any sport other than formula 1 is filed under "too purile for words"

Did you folks just do the first one, or did anyone try the other 38 ones?
(or whatever many he's up to now)

Consistently 5 to 7, usually 7 but no 8's as yet.

I scored 4/10, but then I complained to my MP that it was clearly wrong and so my mark was replaced with the 10/10 I had predicted.
