Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Aquarius (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Nazareth (music round)

It’s Sunday – the day that God made especially for you to go to the pub, get wracked on booze and try winning the quiz.

Thank you, God.

CHEATS

And now, here’s the cheat item for tonight’s quiz at the Tolbooth Tavern. It’s a song by Fifers extraordinaire, Nazareth:

In 1973, everyone in Dunfermline looked like this

Terrific band, the old Nazareth. I remember seeing them when I was a small child and being slightly afraid of them. And at that point I didn’t even realize they were from Dunfermline.

Mind you, so is Barbara Dickson – and no one is afraid of her.

Anyway – there’s no need to be afraid of coming to the quiz because as per rule six, there are nae Fifers allowed.

Except for Michelle Pfeiffer.

Does it sound like I’m talking shit? You’re not wrong. Come and pay witness to more instances of me talking shit tonight at the quizzes. It’s what I do (as well as run a high-quality trivia operation)

Oh by the way way – badges are back. If you win tonight, remind me to give you one.

See you tonight,

Love,

Dr Paul

Thu 20th Dec – Quizzes Tonight in Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Big Country  (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: Morocco (pic round).

Here we go. Last Thursday before Christmas. Newsroom will be busy. Argyle should be nice. But there’s £100 at the Newsy. Hmmm…

Anyway, here’s the cheat clip for tonight’s music round at the Argyle.

That’s Big Country who were a gifted team of 1980s scientists from Fife.

In their Dunfermline laboratory, they pioneered and invented the guitar-that-sounds-like-a-set-of-bagpipes. The world has never been the same since.

All your Stephen Hawking and Tim Berners-Lee and Mister Dyson can get tae France. This is real science for the people.

POLITICS THURSDAY

By the way- Thursday is now the day when I express my opinion on the crazy world of politics

This week’s point: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE WILL DESTROY US ALL.

While the national debate revolves around which flag we wish to exist under, Artificial Intelligence improves apace.

Reports you can find online make various predictions that everyone will either be out of a job by 2025 or 2035.

This strikes me as being more crisis-like than Brexit or Scotland/UK, so why are they never talking about it in Westminster or Holyrood?

I suspect its mainly because no one has any answers to it and no one knows what to do. Fair enough, but people should start talking and then maybe we could work something out…

… before a robot replaces YOU.

Disagree? Come and argue with me at the quiz.
