Another week, another embarrassing score of 5/10. Good to see geology in the news though!

5/10 isn't that bad Someone in the office got 2/10 so don't worry :lol:

Yeah that fossil one was a bit of a pain, I had to look up the other fossils and I just couldn't find one that was very old like the real answer!

Haha better luck next time To be fair to you, I have to put a lot of research into the quizzes because I have no idea about half of it! It gives me a great chance to catch up with the news

Thanks next time I aim for a 2/10. I'm gonna have low expectations so I don't get disappointed. Lol I guess quizzes have other uses besides identifying whether you live under a rock.

Next time I'll be ready

The Blue Ray question is wrong.

1.9Gbps means it would take just over 4s to download one GiB, now even just a single layer Blu Ray is 25GB, so it would take about 100s, or 1m40s

But 25GB isn't the standard, the standard is 50GB, or about 3m 30s
