# The All New Groundspeak Uk Pub Quiz!

## Recommended Posts

Correct! For those who wish to know.

The probability of at least 2 people having a birthday on the same day is:

1 - 365!/(365^n(365-n)!) where n is the number of people. When n >22 the probability goes above 50%.

Even though I got the right answer (my daughter just did this at school) I still find it hard to believe.

You will have to wait until tomorrow for a new question though.

Can I have a dingette for pointing out we've already had that question on this thread? If so, I have a related question. For Sci-Fi fans, the same birthday question is asked, and answered in which 1961 novel?

Aye, we have had this question before on January 4th posted by T-girls and I got the answer correct ... it was then, as it is now, 23.

Music quiz time.

I will only tell you how many you have correct. Not which ones are right.

I think the first one might be Ivor the Engine but it was a bit short to be sure

Some of the others were, I think :-

Ski Sunday,

Grandstand,

South Bank Show,

Dickson of Dock Green ? (very unsure of this one )

The Rockford Files,

Ok. Ivor the Engine, The Simpsons, Ski Sunday, Grandstand, Ready Steady Cook, 'Something from the 60's', 'Not sure', South Bank Show,

All Creatures Great and Small, 'Cartoon series?', Rockford Files.

Looks like a full house to me. Well done.

I knew those hours spent in front of the TV were going to prove useful one day A team effect with C getting The Saint and myself getting Gimme Gimme Gimme and Get Smart... not sure how I remembered Get Smart.

Next question:

For the ding, tell me the name of the person who has appeared on British television for more hours than anyone else.

If you are not sure of the name but have ideas about who this person is then please post and I may offer some hints,

The girl on the test card. Carole Herse?

I thought that would last longer... again Since TV went into colour, the girl (and Bubbles the clown) on Test Card F has been on the tele every evening until 24 hour broadcasting became more widespread. It has been suggested that this means she must have been on the tele more than anyone else.

C has what she thinks is a nasty question for next time

It should be spelt Carole Hersee but I think that is close enough for a ding

(It was 'A Fall of Moondust' by Arthur C Clarke', by the way)

Edit - just fixin' a big L. Oh how I hate them.

OK, here's one to make you think. I made thisquestion up myself, so the answer may be negotiable, but I THINK i'm pretty sure.

Q. Who/what is the most photographed person/object in the world. Each day - every day.
