I used to spend all my time on sporcle at school and people found out about the site meaning everyone went on it and it got blocked on the servers :roll:

C'mon Jay, that's too easy. :P

The real challenge is how many minutes to spare did you have at the end. I had 6.

Didn't know where to put this, but I was reading this article on the NME: http://www.nme.com/blogs/nme-blogs/oasi ... -might-say" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and...
(Some Might Say) It was also, as Alan McGee explained to Uncut in 1998, the song that proved the catalyst for the all-consuming ‘Roll With It’ and ‘Country House’ chart battle, which was the climax of a rivalry between Oasis and Blur that had been bubbling along nicely since the spring of 1994, when ‘Supersonic’ came out at a similar time to Blur’s ‘Parklife’ album. “I’d been friends with Damon Albarn for some time, so I invited him to the ‘Some Might Say’ party after the record went to Number One. Liam, being Liam, spent the evening relentlessly taunting Damon. “Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah. We’re Number One, you’re not.” It was deliberately, offensively infantile and it really riled Damon. Liam was only 20. When you are just 20, you say silly things. It’s almost your job to talk total bollocks. Anyway, Damon left the party thinking ‘Fuck you, Liam, I’m going to teach you a lesson’. That’s why Blur upped the ante and moved the release date of ‘Country House’. To go up against us. The best thing that happened to Oasis was that Blur took them on and carried on taking them on.”

So, it all goes back to Liam being a twat. Makes sense. :lol:

Damn that stupid quiz! I got 90/99 - I named a couple of US bonus tracks if that helps? I messed up the middle of Leisure, forgot about It Could Be You and banged my head of the desk trying to get Turn It Up out of my head for the entire 14 minutes of the quiz.
