Do I? Did I create that without remembering? Brilliant!

Take a bow my friend, you're being very modest.

Now older posters may recall back in the days of people writing cheques as a matter of course, you would pay one in and it would normally take 3 days to clear. However with the advance of modern banking, it seems a cheque nowadays actually takes longer to clear, and when I pointed this out, the bloke on the phone was adamant I was wrong, the bastard.

Scruff the printed numbers on the cheque so that they can't be read by machine, takes ages to clear.

Yes but to be fair I didn't know that exactly. I would have said 1810. The head dumbass, while thinking outloud, said something like "I'd guess 1500".

That was considerably bad given the other team had already identified Napoleon.

I feel we may need to start a thread on Pointless, two more incidents of stupidity and annoyance have occured today.

Earlier on BBC1, the topic being 'famous people's surnames, beginning with the letter B', some bloke banged on about 'every one knows the Scout leader but I reckon it'll be a high score' but then proceeded to answer 'the inventor of the system of raised dots on paper' with Braille :confused: :grrr:

The irony being he won the jackpot at the end of the show.

Secondly, on Challenge earlier, the subject of 'Julius Caesar' more people (71) knew the name of the Egyptian queen who reputedly gave birth to his son than the number of people who knew the month that was named after him (66) FFS :bash:

TBF I think he knew it was 'Louis Braille' while the public answer had clearly been counted on the basis of just 'Braille' - seventy-something.

Which seemed a bit harsh on the bird who got the wrong Bronte sister - why couldn't she just say 'Bronte'?

I thought everyone knew Waterloo was named after a station and Julius Caesar was named after a salad.

This was the lowest scoring question of the 5??!!

What the f*ck did those 100 divs learn at school, whichever generation they're from.

I only studied History for 3 years (up to 14), but I have visited the Monument in Belgium en route to Euro 2000.

I don't remember ever being taught about Waterloo, Trafalgar, Nelson or Napoleon in primary or secondary school during 90s/00s.

History was all about Romans, 1066, Tudors, Slave Trade, Suffragettes, WW1/WW2, holocaust and that's it.
