    1. William, Duke of Normandy is of course more popularly referred to as William the Conqueror.
    2. Emperor penguins are the largest species of penguin alive today.
    3. Arthrology is the study of joints. Difficult to "know" but fairly straightforward to work out.:ninja:
    4. The Godfather is of course the famous New York mafia film starring Marlon Brando and Al Pacino.
    5. Viscount is a higher rank than Baron in the British peerage system.
    6. A flying fox is a particular type of bat.
    7. Niagra Falls is comprised of The Bridal Veil Falls, American Falls and Canadian Horseshow.
    8. Jamaica, Jordan and Japan were the countries I was looking for.
    9. USB stands for Universal Serial Bus.
    10. Stephen King sets his fiction in Derry, Maine.



    REALLY SORRY that this is so short notice but the next quiz will begin late tonight at around 9:30pm.
    Apologies as always to those who can't make it. At least I'm varying the times in both directions for balance.
