Anybody else think that "psycho" question was pure bullshit?
I thought it was bullshit too mate. I hate that association that 'y' is an honorary vowel. It isn't. That said I did get it right as it was the only plausible answer having worked out the a,e,i,o,u.
>Timminz. Took me a while to understand the question after re-reading it a few times, though it is actually well written. Off the top of my head it was positions 7 & 13 (the first use of the word ladder and the last use of the word foreman) which when added = 20. Next prime going up = 23.
I'm still kicking myself for getting Q1 wrong, coz like a plonker I thought the odds of rolling a 1 with 2 dice = 1:3 and getting a 1 with the 2nd die = 1:6, t/fore = 1:18 (when in fact it's 1:36 to roll snake eyes, doh!). I should have asked Pedro - he rolls 'em all the time. And I got the one-legged woman wrong even though I knew the root, but thinking 'cut' I went for a slab of meat. And the last one I got wrong coz I couldn't see a question (thought that was part of the trick) and picked the first answer (forgotten the word already) as it had two syllables when all the others had three so I thought it was the odd one out. 17/20. Not too shabby. Was a good quiz.
