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)

1 Where did whose reign last for 66 days?
