Maybe someone needs to set a new question.........

 

In which year does New Years day and Christmas day happen in the same year?

 

Every year!

 

Sorry all - missed the ding (and several reminders......)

 

Name the city that was served by Dum Dum airport until 1995, when the airport underwent a name change.

If you were travelling from (say) New York to San Francisco via the panama canal, what direction would you be travelling when going through the canal?

Although you'd be going from the Eastern seaboard of the Americas to the Western seaboard, the Panama Isthmus itself runs approximately East/West and you'd be crossing that at almost a right angle. So you'd actually be travelling approximately due South when navigating the canal.

 

Edited to add: Darn it! That'll teach me to write reasoned responses! Nice one, Eusty!

Well we're getting closer, but no-one's correct yet!

 

South East

DING

 

Strange as it may seem the canal is aligned more or less NW to SE

, and going from East to West you're actually travelling in a South Easterly direction.

 

Woop woop

 

OK - what's the largest natural structure on earth?

DING!

 

They didn't win it again for another 69 years, but would have only waited for another 2 years for the next win if it hadn't been for Chelski. Given the current state of the club it may now be another 69 years to the next win - if they can survive that long!

"It's Lieutenant Hurwitz. Severe shell-shock. Thinks he's Ethel Merman"

"Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit amphetamines"

"A hospital? What is it?"... "It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now."

 

NAME THAT FILM!

 

(and for extra kudos, can you say what year it came out - not essential to get a ding)
