You went for a lot of obvious answers that other people avoided because they thought everyone else would say them - The Great Pyramid, for example.

In round three I will be selecting questions which have fewer possible answers ... you can't have it easy every time. :roll:

I'm not sure we need overall scores at all really. Each quiz can stand on its own.

That is a very good question. Not only does it indicate that I am a pillock, but it messes all the scores up!

I'll get onto it. Oops.

You marked 'Luxembourg' twice...

No, because they would not have taken office as President, and would only be Acting President.

OK everyone, I've made a couple of boo boos, so I'm going to have to redo the scores because of somehow missing Steeeeeeeevoooooo's answers!

This does mean that Sam is probably not the winner any more ...

Right, the original post I made with the answers in has been edited to include steeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevooooooooooo's scores, and to sort out the duplication of Luxembourg in the Eurovision question.

Sam will be relived to know that she shares only one answer with him, so her score of eight is doubled to 16, still low enough to be the winner. The adjused scores are now:

Sam - 16
Root - 64
greatkingrat - 128
Rich Tea G - 128
al - 144
Soup Dragon - 144
steeeeevoooo - 144
scrxisi - 216
jamesthegill - 432
uefacup81 - 768
starkey - 1024
palkanetoijala31 - 1536
jbom - 13824
