What To Say At A Dinner Party When The Conversation Is Dying

Postby poohbcarrot » Fri Jul 31, 2009 2:04 pm

Three questions;

1. Why did IBM get angry about the film 2001- A Space Odyssey?

2. What countries were the 6 major participants in the Second World War, who were their leaders, and what is an anagram of the first letters of each of six leaders (for one of the European countries you need the leader's nickname)?

3. How do you get the stripes in toothpaste?

Perfect apart from Japan (you even got Mussolini's nickname correct). He was the Emperor but wasn't the leader.

CHRIST is the correct answer.

So all the people waiting for the second coming might be a bit miffed if they've already missed it and didn't realise!

Tony, how come when you are checking on the forum it has your name in green, but when Jason is checking on the forum his name is in red?

(I hate typing color without a "u")

Once when I was very young, I cut open a tube of toothpaste to find the answer and boy, was I disappointed!
