Gungawins T-Shirts

I’ve given away quite a lot of old Gungawins merch at the quiz over the last couple of months after taking a bulk shipment of their wares.

I know one of the men who began the company (a Glasgow operation) but I have no idea how they never ended up millionaires.

Gungawins claim to have quit, but I feel that one day they will be back…

Here is a retrospective of some of their important work:

How Positivity Affects Your Chances of Winning The Quiz

They say it’s all in the mind.

Before turning up to the Persevere last night, QUIZTIAN SLATER posted on the Dr Paul facebook this statement of intent regarding the £120 jackpot:

.. Let it be known, *we are coming for the money.

A couple of hours later:
_120 slaterSee? You gotta be positive.

Unity Mug

Last September’s Scottish Independence referendum didn’t go the way I wanted it but to help the healing process I have created this mug:

_prize mugIts a Yes wristband round a Union J mug. This is the kind of thing that will bring families back together. Peace for all.

I say all this as if I’m about to sell you one but I gave this away at the quiz at the Percy on Sunday and I have no plans to make any more. I can’t honestly see the market for this.

Terrible Answer Wins £100

singapore sapporoSo last night’s big money jackpot at the Persevere came down to the last multiple-choice question for £100:

Q: What does the name of the city ‘Singapore’ actually mean?

  • City of Monkeys
  • City of Lions
  • City of Dragons
  • City of Angels

A bloke called Dylan got it right and won £100 in sexy Scottish cash. Brilliant. Afterwards he told me has worked out the answer like this:

“Well I thought Singapore must be where they get Sapporo beer and I’m pretty sure there’s a lion on the Sapporo beer label.  So it must be ‘City of Lions’

As it happens, Sapporo beer is made 3693 miles away from Singapore, in Sapporo on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido. Also, the Sapporo logo is a big golden star. As far as I can make out they’ve never used a lion.

So well done Dylan, it takes a special kind of genius to put two completely wrong things together to come up with the correct answer, and kind of appropriate given that the name of Singapore is probably a mistake anyway.

Incidentally, if you ever want to know how far it is from one place to another, I suggest this epic tool.
