The song in the Brass Monkey Leith music round is by the Ellie goulding. Here is the:

God, it’s so straight.

Here’s something I found earlier today which is NOT STRAIGHT: some bloke from Turkey messing about with frets. He could just leave them alone and play the guitar, but it’s not his style. Microtonal, that’s the name for this weirdness.

This has got nowt to do with the quiz by the way, I just thought it appropriate to provide at least one ever so slightly different way of looking at the world after the sledgehammer normality of that Ellie Goulding tune. I felt my brain turning to ceramic while listneing to it.

Don’t let the same thing happen to you.

Vegans Lose Tiebreak As Heart Rules Head

I had a tiebreaker situation at the Tolbooth Tavern the other night with a nearest-the-bull style question:

How many turkeys are killed and eaten for Christmas every year in the UK?

There were two normal teams in the tiebreaker and one team containing vegans.

Afraid of upsetting the kelp-munchers in their group, the vegan-influenced wrote down “600,000” knowing all the time the answer was probably higher.

Of course the answer was 10 million and one of the other teams won the tiebreak and the £120.

Moral: The world is not always what you wish it to be.
