    If you keep pet snails you can feed them a little bit of beer as a treat, but don't make it a regular thing or they become addicted and you end up with alcoholic snails.

    Maybe, but it's hard to trust their answers when they've given a few wrong ones. Especially when one of them was the x3 final question.

    Apparently the poem goes "I wondered lonely as a daffodil".

    Switzerland - square flag.
    However, technically, a square is a rectangle, but no one refers to them as such.
    Nepal's is very different though.

    true i can remember a bonus question in a maths round which said "2.2 + 2.3 + 0.5 = ?" the options were 5.1, 5.2 or 5.3 which is quite unfair but im quite sure the nepal one is right, though i should maybe have gone with non-quadrilateral instead of non-rectangular
