Wiki-illiams Quizz 2018. Round 1

FT13 comments • 333 views

RUBRIC: welcome to the FreakyTrigger wing of a quiz sat for a hundred and funfty years by some lucky/isle of man schoolkids etc blah blah bloop. Themed sets of 10 questions each — a new one every day (or so). COLLABORATIN’ COMMENT CREW (C3) pile in — we can work it out

RULEZ: Don’t put googled answers up till after the next question appears — to let others show off their BRANES — and note where they are googled (or borrowed off of rival sites with good answers). OFF WE GO!

(If you are on old LiveJournalista, WELCOME KOMRADE, yes we are trying out a move here in decadent capitalist pop blog. I don’t know if the FT/wordpress comments can support the hot action, or if the stone cold will to quizz is even there. Let’s find out)

ROUND 1 During 1918:

1 Where did whose reign last for 66 days?

I think we were equal parts pleased and relieved to finish the Top 100 Songs of All Time. That is to say massively so on both counts considering FT’s grand history of unfinished lists. So when Tom turned in his arresting finalé for the #1 at the end of 2014, ten years after the list was “composed”, I found myself further moved to compile the posts into book form. Ebook form of course, we’re not tree-killing monsters, granddad.

You know, because free to read on the mobile internet isn’t enough. Right? Free to read on an ebook reader is what all the cool… LOOK I don’t know exactly why we did this. It’s a sort of experimental ground-breaking I suppose.

So follow the above link to the list’s index of posts and you’ll see we’ve added two downloads at the top of that page. Using one or the other of those you should be able to read the full text of the list with any of the ebook readers out there. We hope you like it.

Keep an eye out for our next mega-listicle: Freaky Trigger’s Top 23 Dogs of All Time!
