General Knowledge Quiz! - Quiz in OP - Happy 1,800th!

Last update 23/06/2023 4:25pm - Day 58 - Answer as many as you like but be reasonable. If you are in the lead answer lower number questions before higher numbers as these have been out for longer.

I didn’t write any of these, but it’s from a pdf with 10,000 questions so don’t complain. If you want to protest an answer I can use google to check (I learnt how, from the covid thread). Sorry about the formatting of some of the questions. I’m not going to grammar check them.

There are 100 questions at a time. These get updated 3 / 4 times per day. Please check the OP for last update time.

This quiz has a ladder which will be updated with the questions and answers.
