Thursday’s quiz

The questions posed are improving my general knowledge so much I’d be tempted to leave the questions up to you even if I wasn’t blogging lighter.

But that’s academic because I am still blogging lighter which leaves it up to you to pose the questions.

Anyone who stumps everyone will win a virtual case of blackboy (or is it black boy?) peaches.

    A box of virtual peaches would go well with the virtual nectarines from last year so, fingers crossed I will stick with the same subject, golf. For reference the Major Championships are Open Championship (British Open), US Open, USPGA Championship and The Masters.

    1. Who is the only person to have won the Open Championships 4 times in a row?

    2. What was unusual about his fourth win?

    3. How many Father and Son combinations have both won major championships?

    4. Who are the only Father & Son combination to have finished first and second in a major championship?

    5. How many golfers have won the US Open 3 times in a row?

    1) “2 Minutes to Midnight” is a song from which album, by which band

    2) what is “Eschatology”?

    3) Which word appears only once in the New Testament, and where does it appear?

    4) To whom was the following attributed: “When the end of the world comes, I want to be in Cincinnati because it is always twenty years behind the times”

    5) In which book, by which authors do “The nice and accurate prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch” appear

    1. Iron Maiden

    2. It is part of theology and from the tone of your questions I think it has something to do with the end of mankind.

    3. I assume the word that you are looking for is Eternity. In the depths of my mind I am sure that there were other words that appeared only once (reverend is one I seem to recall) but it is also dependent upon which version you read as well.

    4. Another great quote from that wonderful writer and humourist Samuel Langhorne Clemens or as he is better known, Mark Twain

    5. What a great book. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

    2) I’m guessing that there was an interruption between the 3rd and 4th titles

    I wouldn’t be able to answer the others without googling them
