Monday’s questions were:
1. Which country won the first football world cup in 1930 and who were they playing?
2. What are the three most common magnetic metals.
3. Who said: “Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.”?
4. Gephyrophobia is a fear of what?
5.What does vox. pop. stand for and what does it mean?
Andrei got three and a half and a bonus for knowing that gephyr means bridge.
I2 got two, and a bonus for memory – School C. Latin wasn’t yesterday 🙂
David got three.
Paul got three right. Not sure if heavy metals are all magnetic but his answer gets a bonus for wit and musical taste and another for satire for his answer to #3.
GD – do I give the same as Paul for admitting you’re cheating? I’m not sure if alloys count but I’ll allow that answer.
PDM got 1/2 for #1, 1/3 for #2, a bonus for having a Scottish father (so did I) and for humour for #4 and fair comment for #5.
You can all have a an electronic boquet of flowers bright enough to warm a wold winter day.

2. Iron, nickel and cobalt.
