    Nope. To clarify I am looking for the largest building built for a parliament to meet in and do its thing.

    The one in Romania is crazy enormous, if I am thinking about the right building. I assume you're counting "chamber of the people's deputies" type things as parliaments?

    North Korea also has an overcompensation thing going on with public buildings, but I am going with Romania.

    You are correct, it is Ceausescu's Palace in Romania!

    Guess not :(

    Awww jeah, king of quizzes.


    In the middle ages there was a general belief in the existence of unicorns, and while there were no actual examples of unicorns there were some items that were considered to be "unicorn horns".

    From what animal did these actually come, and what in fact are they?

    They can't all be 6-part poultry terminology questions.

    It amazes me that they could score Narwal horns in the middle ages. Aren't they Arctic based?

    They were extremely rare and thus vastly expensive. I believe they were traded south.

    Anyway, LBro mentioned the Pentagon as largest parliament. It isn't, but it is the largest something else....

    It's good, but it's not right.


    At least, it's not the answer on the card.

    OK, on this day in 1948 the Australian cricket team, on tour in England, set a first-class world record that still stands by scoring XXX runs in a day against Essex.

    How many runs? (Closest by 09:15 is the winner)
