Friday Quiz No.4
« on: November 14, 2008, 01:25:15 PM »

Because of the spambots this week, I suggested to Kitz that we make all potential members who want to sign up, do one of my quizzes and they must pass with 80% to prove they are human.
She declined my offer as, she said, "Most of the members on here would not pass"

Prove her wrong, gang!

Two rounds this week, again, one on 'Born Losers' and the second on Comedy. Good luck everyone.

Dave, I guessed you were referring to the modern era of snooker, which indeed began in 1969.

Walter Donaldson's loses, all against Fred Davis, were in 1949,49,51,53,53,54.  Donalson beat Davis in the 1948 & 1950 finals.
