    Norway is not further north than Iceland, it just looks like it is on the Wikipedia picture.

    Ooooh, wait, I need to shut the hell up. I apologise.

    Because they're not part of the EEA? or just malign dicketry on your part?


    How about: Cyprus for South, Norway for North and East, and Iceland for West?

    Wait, am I mixed up between Crete and Cyprus then? I think I thought Cyprus was where Crete actually is.

    OK, Crete questions:

    What's the name of the palace there that's a famous archeological site?

    What's the name of the civilisation from there and then?

    What's the name of the volcano that blew up and (some say) was responsible for the downfall of their civilisation?

    Aye, I'll accept Thera (I'd also have taken Santorini, which is what they're calling the island these days).

    Destria or imamazed can ask a question.

    Really should have got all 3, having been to Crete 12 times before.

    I'll let Des go

    BOLLOCKING COCK. I wander off to read about Dune's expanded universe and miss my topic of choice.

    Okay, inspired the the animally question above... give me the collective nouns for the following animals:

    1. Owl
    2. Gorilla
    3. Viper
    4. Crows
    5. Locust
    6. God (not an animal, but meh...)

    A couple of these have more than one option, so I'll accept either

    Yup. Band of gorillas. I'd also have accepted the wonderful "whoop".

    Meme got 5, so he's up

    OK.

    What is the intriguing purpose of the electronic gadget that the hero of Desmond Bagley's "Running Blind" novel is asked to deliver, in his role as a secret service agent?

    The actual purpose of it is that it does absolutely nothing. You put electricity in one side and nothing comes out of the other.
    The reason he is carrying it is to try to flush out the suspected spy/double agent.

    It's a fucking great book, as are most of his. My favourites being The Tightrope Men and The Spoilers.

    Not as nice as I used to be
