    I'm doing a quiz for New Years Eve and I want it to be all about 2010 and what has happened during the year.

    But I need a little help, what are the biggest events/moments in your opinion that have happened during the year that I could ask questions about.

    I'd really appreciate any help with this

    The Chilean miners.

    For a possible sports round, you could mention Rooney wanting to leave Man United then changing his mind in the space of a week.

    EDIT: Sorry pissy Man United fans (who I am one of), I only stated the truth about the Rooney situation. Unless the neg was from someone who is offended by the mention of foreign people who work underground.
