Eggheads

Recommended Posts

Anyone else just see Saints fan Mark (Marko Van Haddock) on Eggheads there?

Guess it will be on iPlayer shortly if you are interested.

One of my favourite TV shows, recorded in Glasgow.

Any other Saints fans join me in a Buddies team and I could put an entry in?

What are your strong/weak subjects?

Brilliant quiz.

Not for me.

I hate these things where the accumulation of knowledge is mistaken for intelligence.

Mind you I'm a grumpy bugger........

I'd be delighted to have a bash... specialist subject being 'all that obscure pish nobody should really know about'

although i do agree with Oaksoft that the ability to remember trivia is in no way a measure of intelligence

Didn't see the programme but would be interested in joining your team, my specialist subject punching "CJ" de Mooi in his smug arrogant face for the duration of the recording.

Hi good. You do know CJ left about two years ago?

Replaced by 'Tremendous Knowledge' Dave Rainford. Some nick name to live up to that.

Not saying you are not, but interested in serious players here to make a strong team...........

Here are the Egghead subject categories. Some sound easy but are not.

Politics
Asquith, Disraeli, US Presidents?
Great if you know it, tough if you don’t.

Arts & Books
Very difficult to have comprehensive knowledge. In my opinion.

Food & Drink
Hmmm.

Sounds OK but ………….

History
Think this is the single hardest category.
Do you know your Royalty and everything that happened in last 1,000,000 years? I don’t.
The individual Eggheads are superb on this subject.
Tough.
Kevin has never been beaten.

Geography
I like this but wide ranging.

Science
Need to know.

Music
Pop Music, OK.
Opera?
Classical?
Really?

Film & Television
Big subject from Hitchcock , Hammer to Hannah Montana.

Sport
Aye, on here we all like (Scottish) football fans but Olympics, Skiing, USA Sports?
Are you very sure? You need to be.

A good example for anyone who thinks it is easy. An Oxford classics professor who thought he only had to show up to win. First question:

‘What is the colour of Noddy’s hat? Do you know, under pressure?

My mate Allan (FS Saint) will have extensive experience of this but I’m guessing the fact he is a BBC employee will mean he can’t take part.

Yes I know Cj (I didn't get where I am today without being a dick) left to further his career( that worked out well) however a boy's allowed to dream.

If you are serious about putting together a team then I would suggest entering local pub Quizzes before looking like a dick on TV,

I'm ok on Art, Geography, Music 1960-1980, TV & Film, anything other than that I'm crap,

Yes even sport they could ask the name of St Mirrens,,...........,,,,,? I would get it wrong.

Apart from that Cj was first choice there are so many "celebs Who I would pummel with Gusto

I'd be up for that. Actually successfully applied a few years ago as well but couldn't get the whole team together on the day.

I'm a bit of a generalist to be honest but good on food and drink, sport, TV, science, nature. Not so hot on art and lit and history. I also present the Craig Dhu pub quiz every week so surely some of it must have sunk in??!!

Don't put that fanny fart Blurto in, he's shite at spelling and grammar.

and yet you allow all and sundry to call you a dickhead without asking them to stop.

Ah you see, that's because those saying it have no value to me so it's water off a ducks back.

I'm sorry did you genuinely think I cared what people think about me?

Aw that's so sweet.

I may vomit.

Very true Herbie , I'm in my 16th year of presenting and during the summer , in Spain , I was dared to enter a quiz for the first time this century. There were around twenty teams , a mixture of holidaymakers and ex-pats , and I won it oot the park pocketing 100euros. It was amazing how many questions were asked that I had previously asked !
