    My mind is like a sponge....


    Meaning it grows on the seabed and is pretty much useless until the point it's being rubbed up and down someone's back....:cool:


    Nah, I watch things like QI, I do loads of quizzes, I like random facts. And I can just recall them quickly. I don't know more than other people, I just remember it faster.

    Nah, if I got on Weakest Link I'd be the one voted off before the second to last round as people gang up on me :p:

    Millionaire costs too much to try and get on, but offers greater financial rewards!

    Hmm. You could pretend to not be as knowledgeable as you are, then when it came to the last round you could be all "ta-dah! I know everything!" and flatten the last person :yes:

    And getting to have a few pints while you're at it. Can't think of much better


    And even if you don't win - you keep learning.. You never know when things will pop up.

    One of the questions on University Challenge this week was used at our pub last week...

    Yeah, you should, they're good fun.


    Just coming up with a new funny name every week is entertaining enough

    "Luke, Cat, Mike Hock and Si" was our favourite. Though, I'm always a fan of "fat kids are harder to kidnap".

    Does your SU not do one? We're thinking of heading down to York Uni and York St Johns' when they both get up and running :p:

    Probably they do, I had no social life last year so I didn't get to have any fun. We'll see this year now the evil illness is finally retreating :woo:
