And Your chosen Specialist Subject is....?

Postby Perdita X » Fri May 15, 2009 2:32 pm

SO - If you were on Mastermind what would it be?

Would it be the Discworld novels of a certain Sir TP - or would you choose something else ?

I have often wished someone would do TP novels and then I could WOW my family with my brilliance!! :roll:

I would have British Birds as my 1st choice. A contestant did this a while ago & I scored 15, the same points, they went on to win the heat too.
My 2nd choice would be Horses.
Sadly I wasn't as good at the general knowledge questions. :oops: :( :)
Best wishes,
Tiff

Well I'd have to brush up of course, but I really like:

Discworld (of course)
Star Trek
The works of Jane Austen
Germs (eh?)

Seem to recall some bloke who had TP novels as his subject...missed the questions though, don't know how difficult they were.

Can't really think of any subjects I would do great in. I seem to know a bit about a lot, instead of a lot about just a few things :?
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

Martin Scorsese 1973-1990
The novels of Graham Greene
Super Furry Animals
British television comedy
Manchester United 1975 onwards

Any of those should do.

My housemate (Mr. Van Quirm :evil: ) always used to say "The Life and Times of Peter VQ" - but as he slept through a lot of the last 10 years or more he'd be very iffy on the latter part... but then he never had that great recall anyway :twisted:

I don't know what my specialist subject would be (NOT Tolkien as I know the people who'd be asked to compile the questions are so anal it's untrue and I only bother with readable stories :roll: ) but I'd never enter 'cos I'd be hopeless with the GK round and I really only know trivia stuff :?

example question - who scored a hat-trick to knock Merthyr Tydfill out of the FA cup in 1990?
