Been having a bit of a clear out and came across a quiz book, so thought I'd revive the old "Pub Quiz" that Tyke ran a few years back. Trivia, but not as tough as Pandora's! lol

-1. Who was the US politician after whom the 1919 Prohibition Act was named?
-2. Who was the brother and sister pairing who won the Wimbledon mixed doubles in 1980?
-3. What does the Scoville scale measure?
-4. What was the name of German terrorist Andreas Baader's female partner...?
-5. ...and what was the name of the urban guerrilla group they ran?
-6. In Cockney rhyming slang, what are "porkies"?
-7. Who was C-in-C of the UN forces in the Korean war until relieved of his command in April 1951?
-8. Who painted "Bowl of Fruit, Bottle and Violin" in 1914?
-9. In Holst's "The Planets" suite, which planet is the Bringer of Jollity?
-10. According to George W Bush in 2001, what product do he and Tony Blair both use?
-11. What is the main ingredient of soubise sauce?
-12. What word means the bending of light when passed through a prism?

Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.
