Welcome to my quiz!

Below are 8 rounds of 5 questions, giving a maximum possible score of 40. There are a mixture of easy to difficult questions. All questions are worth one mark. I will upload the answers in a week or so. Please make sure you put your reply in a spoiler box, so that other users cannot see your answers.

As usual, please refrain from cheating, either by looking at other people's answers or searching through the internet. There is no prize for this quiz, it is only a bit of fun, so you will only be cheating yourself.

I have tried my best to write questions that have clear answers, so to avoid any debate as to the correct answer.

So, here we go! Good luck to all!

On a serious note because I feel I have to point things like this out occasionally, I really enjoy trying to entertain anyone who finds the effort to make a quiz

Also more seriously, I'm thinking of getting that new Mel B exercise game
