I'm testing how to use polls to make a quiz. Basically it's 6 polls in one post (at least that's what I expect to see once I press "post new thread"). It is possible to make 6 posts with one poll each, but I assume this will work just as well, if not better.

Each question has a single correct answer. You can and will see the "poll results" only after you enter an answer.

There is no functionality for me to mark a certain answer as correct (it's a poll tool after all). I could limit the poll duration and give the answers after the "poll" is closed, but I'll just leave it open forever. And I'll post the answers ... next weekend maybe ? Or when I think the joke has run its course. Whatever.

The first 4-5 questions are fairly easy. I'm afraid the 6th one requires a very particular knowledge and a stretchable mind. Enjoy.

The only bummer is the page reloads for each vote you submit.

I assume this is leading up to an in-depth quiz for BG3? Backstab advantage y/n that kind of thing?

That's a bummer indeed. Well, at least, now I know.

It's leading up to a more BG3-centred quiz indeed. Not necessarily as serious as you imagine at first.

Answers :


1) What is your favourite colour ?
Clearly, the answers were either "Blue", or "Blue ... No !".

2) What is the capital of Assyria ?
Every schooled child knows that the capital was Assur (at various points in history at least). Damascus was indeed a trap, and it did play its role well it seems.

3) What is the air speed velocity of an unladden swallow ?
It was indeed "An African or a European swallow ?". Good to see that everyone remembers that.

4) The Hammers is the nickname of what English football team ?
Another source of easy points, the answer was West Ham United indeed.

5) What did Michaelangelo paint ?
He certainly wasn't going to settle for the "The last meal" or "The final snack", and he was aiming for "The real last supper", or at least "The penultimate supper", which were both accepted answers. History didn't give him that opportunity I'm afraid, and in the end the correct answer was Leonardo. Bonus points if you know de Groot and Turk.

6) His name is Just LeWhite.
This one was a bit trickier, as you needed to have seen the French film "le dîner de cons". The answer is "He doesn't have a first name ?", although "What's the name of that book he wrote again ?" was accepted as well.

You get 2 pints of beer per correct answer, as well as half a kamoulox for each accepted one. If you end up with more margheritas than daisies, congratulations, you've won one internet.

Nice that someone recognised Assur ... wink
