Thanks for the ding

 

Where in the British isles is the Marisco Tavern

 

That i believe is on the Isle of Lundy, even though i have never been there, i used to live in North Devon, so spent a lot of time looking at it [:)]

 

That is a Ding for you.

I worked in the Tavern in 2001/2 I know it well.

Cool, I'll keep it on the Marisco theme and ask which town, which can see Lundy has a nightclub called Mariscos?

OK, you have all heard of a pride of lions or a troop of monkeys - but what is the collective noun for a load of moles?

 

A ****** of moles!

 

that will be company or labour of Moles

I have a cat that loves to cache moles. he sits for hours watching mole hills, he then takes of vertically, dives head first into the hill and comes out with the mole in his mouth. the local farmer loves him as he keeps his filed clear of moles.

It would have been quicker if I hadn't had to answer the phone.

Some idiot drove up Snowdon twice not long ago. Does that count?

 

dose not count, as the road I am thinking of, has legal public access, it is very popular with 4*4 drivers and motorbikes.

there is also a cache near the top of the pass that has been there since September 2002

I think I've identified it using a little bit of research... I didn't technically go on Google (well apart from their maps service)

 

The cache is Wayfarer's Memorial GC8AEE. The track runs from Llandrillo to Pentre?

 

that will be a ding for you Google :anitongue: will be forgiven this time :laughing:

Woo thanks! :D

 

Ok here's my question. "Who owns the fish?" is a famous logic puzzle. Who is reputed to have devised it?

There can only be one question to follow, although it's a bit beyond what you might get in a pub quiz (sorry)

 

There are five houses in a row and in five different colours.In each house lives a person from a different country.

 

Each person drinks a certain drink, plays a certain sport, and keeps a certain pet.

 

No two people drink the same drink, play the same sport, or keep the same pet.

 

  • The Brit lives in a red house
  • The Swede keeps dogs
  • The Dane drinks tea
  • The green house is on the left of the white house
  • The green house owner drinks coffee
  • The person who plays polo rears birds
  • The owner of the yellow house plays hockey
  • The man living in the house right in the centre drinks milk
  • The Norwegian lives in the first house
  • The man who plays baseball lives next to the man who keeps cats
  • The man who keeps horses lives next to the one who plays hockey
  • The man who plays billiards drinks beer
  • The German plays soccer
  • The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
  • The man who plays baseball has a neighbour who drinks water.

Who Owns The Fish?

That'll get you the DING!

 

Although the Nobel was awarded for "services to theoretical physics", the substantive piece of work that earned him the prize was the discovery of the Law governing the photoelectric effect. This discovery laid the foundations for future work in quantum physics.

 

Over to MTH :)

I thought that Marie Curie shared her first Nobel prize with her husband.

 

This question is nagging me because it asks for a "person". ISTR that the International Red Cross has won several Peace prizes, including for both World Wars. I suspect that, legally, the Red Cross is a 'person' (in the same way as any body incorporated is) but I'm not sure it's the answer that MTH is looking for!

Linus Pauling gets the Ding.

 

Marie Curie dod indeed share het first prize with her husband and , I think, Roentgen. Howevere Pierre Curie refused to accept unless Marie was included.

 

Seversl organisations, including the Red Cross, have won more than one prize but I did want an individual.

 

I must find out more about Pauling - Chemistry and Peace is quite some going!
