King William College Quiz

The King William College Quiz, apparently now my only FPP in a year (since the last quiz), hopefully as hard as ever, but unlikely to reward my brand of laziness. Merry Christmas! See previous posts for laying out answers, I'll post the Guardians' answer sheet in January.

Damn hard quiz.

King William's College annual quiz. Every year the students of King William's College on the Isle of Man are quizzed before xmas. The average score is apparently 2/180. The kids are then supposed to come back with all the answers after the holiday. Try it - it's pretty hard. (You'll have to wait another couple of weeks for the answers I'm afraid)
