4. You can only post answers ONCE for the same quiz.

Okay, sorry I haven't had a chance to get on here and post the quiz. I know how much you guys need your fix. So here goes. Each answer will be a specific value, you get zero points if you hit it dead-on, and one point for every increment (whole number, day, etc.) you're off by. The person with the lowest score will be the winner.

1. Diameter of the moon. (km)
2. Land area of Canada. (sq. km)
3. How many feet are in a leauge?
4. How many imperial bushels in a register ton?
5. Year that New York's Central Park opened.
6. Year that the lance was discontinued as an official battle weapon of the
British Army.
7. Acres of pizza eaten by Americans on a daily basis.
8. Number of dimples on a regulation golf ball.
9. Number of ways to make change for a US dollar.
10. Number of misspelled entries in Webster's 1996 Dictionary.

I really didn't consider how long this is going to take to score, but it's already written, so it's my own punishment.

Will I or Won’t I...

1. What nationailty was legendary archer William Tell?
2. What letter of Alphabet did Wil Smith’s character in Men in Black and MIB II have as his name.
3. William I was also known as.... ? (there are three options here I’ll accept, and I’ll give extra points for as many of them you can come up with)
4. What current US hip hop group is “” a member of?
5. Which peroxided UK rocker was born William Michael Albert Broad?
6. Who’s the older of the tennis playing Williams Sisters? Venus or Serena?
7. Was John William Waterhouse a reknowned :
(a) Opera Singer
(b) Painter
(c) Author
(d) Puppeteer.
8. In which movie did Mel Gibson portray the life of William Wallace?
9. R & B Singer Vanessa Williams was for a brief time Miss America (1984 - before photos to be published in Penthouse put paid to that...) What US State did she represent in the pageant?
10. William Shatner portrayed which famous science fiction TV/Movie character.

Bonus: OK Here’s my William Shakespeare questions (of sorts)... there had to be some...

B1. Which 80’s UK girl group did Siobahn Fahey leave to form new group ‘Shakespeare’s Sister’?

B2. Ok this get’s weirder, but bear with me... The name for the group ‘Shakepeare’s Sister’, is taken from song by the Smiths of the same name. They in turn got the name from a feminist essay called “A Room of One's Own” in which the author argues that had William Shakespeare a sister of equal genius, as a woman she would not have had the opportunity to make use of it.

Who was the author of the essay?

(and I admit I didn't just 'know' that, I found it on Wikipedia.)
