Hope you claim 🎉
Well done Eve
doh put in mary shelley , then the dude lol
🦋Good Luck everyone, it’s been a fantastic quiz Daniel, and may the best man or woman win ! ☺️🦋
🦋Daniel, I wasn’t sure if you wanted the Authors full name or his shortened name for the last question so I’ve played safe and put both on the entry.☺️🦋
🎉 Good luck everyone 🎉
I was more specific and put blue whale as my answer yesterday – does that count as a correct answer?
I put blue whale as well.
I did as well
Me too (QI strikes again 🙂 )
I put blue whale also.
That is fine. As long as ‘Whale’ was mentioned that is the correct answer. Good Luck! Daniel
A proper Margherita has mozzarella, tomato and basil! I left out the tomato in my answer as I thought that the tomato base wasn’t considered a topping over here, though it is in Italy for a pizza rossa (a pizza bianca doesn’t have a tomato base).
Found this recipe and it states : For the topping
125g ball mozzarella, sliced
handful grated or shaved parmesan
(or vegetarian alternative)
handful cherry tomatoes, halved
its cheese n tomato
I lived in Italy for 5 years and a Margherita has basil on it as well as cheese and tomato. I can’t speak for the distorted British versions.
Right, I have now bookmarked the page as the last two days I have not received the daily reminder email. It is not in spam neither as I always check that daily. Happened a few times last month too. 🙁
Yes same here
same with me too
Must admit Jackie has a point, but have put 2 toppings, but worried about leaving out the third.
I wouldn’t worry, the question specifically asks about 2 toppings x
Margherita has three toppings, the colours of the Italian flag. One of them isn’t considered a topping here, but in Italy it is.
Ive got this one right, I think, not like question 1 which I mis understood. 😂
🦋Daniel, I might have sent today’s answer (#23) twice but it is the same answer I’ve used.☺️🦋
Hi Maggie. No worries at all. Only the first one counts so it doesn’t matter. Good Luck! Daniel
Can the link to the competition in the reminder email be mended please
Hi Heather10, Which link are you using? – I’ve just tested it on today’s e-mail and clicking on both the image and the title take me to the competition page? – Please can you confirm. Thanks, Daniel
Hi Heather10, Just noticed that the third small link at the bottom of that section doesn’t work – I’ve corrected it for any newsletters going out now. Hope this is the one you were referring to. Good Luck, Daniel
In the email I click on the link to the competition and it brings me to this site but says oops the page cannot be found
Hi Heather10, Is that with today’s e-mail too? – Is anyone else having problems? Thanks Daniel
I’m assuming today you are looking for the widely accepted answer but if you discount annulled marriages (which have therefore been declared never to have been genuine marriages) then the answert is different – & that’s what comes from watching QI! Lol
🦋Daniel, today’s clue ( #20 ) could be 1 of 2 different words, so I’ve put both as my answer as they both are the same but I’m not sure which one you wanted. Hope this is allowed ?🤔☺️🦋
Hi Maggie, That is OK. You have the right answer anyway. Good Luck! Daniel
Please do tell – what was the other one?
🦋Ruskin, I wasn’t sure which one Daniel wanted so I put both Guinness and Stout😊🦋
Question 11 – Pluto isn’t a planet. It’s been downgraded as it’s too small.
It’s been classed as a dwarf planet, so still a planet!
Of course Pluto also isn’t a real dog…just saying….. 😉
for anyone interested “nutes” is slang for plant nutrients!!!!….well you learn a new thing every day!!lol
I’ve put the answer for nuts. Not sure what nutes are lol
Me too. Nutes!!!! He he, made me chuckle. 😂
Sorry Heather10 – You worked it out correctly! – It was meant to say Nuts. Good Luck, Daniel
Hi Stuart. I’m very sorry about that. It was meant to say ‘nuts’. It has since been corrected though. Good Luck, Daniel
Never heard of nutes!!
Apologies. It was meant to say ‘nuts’. It has since been corrected though. Good Luck, Daniel
the hills are alive with the
The answer to todays question isn’t actually an organ it’s a gland!!
Unless of course it’s a trick question as the correct answer should be NONE!! 🤣😂🤣 T.x
After googling, it does say that this is an organ.
🦋Tracy, glad you’re not my consultant or surgeon !😳🤣🤣( only joking ) 😉 where did you see it as being a gland and not an organ ?🤔🦋
It was early (for me) when I wrote this and was just thinking of the 5 major organs of the body (in my defence).
It is classed as an exocrine gland as well as a minor organ so I guess we were both right.
Sorry Daniel ☺ T.x
I only ever thought of it as a gland but searching it I found it called a “glandular organ” so maybe I am just out of date (big surprise, lol)
Why is it only a 30 day July quiz?
It says – The 31 Day July Quiz Challenge
This has since been corrected after Phil’s alert – Thanks for pointing it out! Good Luck, Daniel
Apologies phil. 😃
Pancakes are for life, not just for Pancake Day 😁❤️
Each year we have pancakes and I always think ‘why don’t we have them more often?’ and then it takes too long to make them for everyone, I lose a couple flipping them and mine are always cold before I get to eat them and then I think ‘ That’s why!!!’ lol 😂
We cheat and use instant mix ones. The pan we use is too heavy for flipping, and would probably break the handle, like it does in those home videos clips you sometimes see on TV.
My Dogs called Jupiter. He’s tiny 😂. Did put the right answer though.
Technically not a planet any more…. 😛
It is currently classed as a ‘Dwarf Planet’
What sea creature has three hearts – octopus/squid
I would point out that cuttlefish, (my answer), do as well
Very true. I discovered that too.
Octopus is probably the most commonly known though.
That is indeed correct (and I didn’t know that). Anyone who answered Cuttlefish will also be awarded as the correct answer. Thanks for pointing this out. Daniel
TBH they are all closely related.
I have the page bookmarked so don’t use the email link
I too am getting the “oops “message but as I am absolutely useless with a computer I thought I’d done something wrong!!.
When I click on the link in the daily email to take me to the comp page yesterday and today I get oops page cannot be found. Not sure if the link is broken or others getting this also?
Am I the only one who put 18 as if you add 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 (etc 18 times) that’s 6? I didn’t even think of any other answer. I suppose “how many 1/3’s in 6?” might have been clearer
I put 18, but just to be sure I asked my Daughter, who has just done her GCSE maths. 😉
I answered eighteen; never even thought about a different answer!!
Wow, alot of people confused about the wording of the first question, has there been a worry of trying too hard to word the second question accurately? Republic of Ireland would have been better!
I had a feeling yesterday’s answer would end up being 18 despite reality, as it doesn’t matter what number you have there are only three thirds. One third of 99 is 33, one third of 100 is 33.3 recurring, one third of 6 is 2 and so on. It was badly worded but atleast we still get 1 entry in the comp 🙂
I don’t understand yesterdays question, surely any number can only be divided into three thirds?
I thought it was a trick question, my first thought was 18 so I put 3 but it is in fact 18. 1/3 x 18 = 6
I also thought ‘trick question’ and after much debating settled on 3.
Same here. I answered 3, too
I ALSO PUT 3 AS ANYTHING IN THIRDS IS 3
Tracy a third is 1/3. This is not equal to 3.
I disagree with your answer for question one. I put that there are 2 thirds in 6. You have multiplied 6×3 which is not what was asked. Even if you Google the question it comes up with 2. Can the correct answer be posted on the answer page please
Hi Heather, The answer is 18. There is 3, 1/3rds in 1 and then times 3 by 6 to get 18. Hope this helps.
I agree with Heather10 the question did not specify a third of 1 it said how many thirds in six.
Hi Heather. 18 is the correct answer, as Chris has explained. If you Google “how many thirds in 6”, it answers 18, not 2.
I also put two as the answer, but my husband said it was 18. I replied, you what!, and also googled after posting my incorrect answer, and yes it says 18. I think its me and you that have misunderstood the question. But never mind, we still get an entry for trying.
18 is definitely the correct answer! It’s basically asking how many 0.33333’s are in 6?
The question asks how many THIRDS (=0.33333333) are in 6, not how many THREE’s are in 6.
Well the question was not very clear but never mind
Sorry I don’t agree, unless you read it/understood it as ‘3’ instead of ‘third’, which isn’t the question writers fault to be fair.
I put 2 as well!lol!
