New quiz
« on: February 26, 2012, 03:30:10 PM »
A series of questions of which the initial letters of the correct answers, when re-arranged, form the name of a character, actor/actress, place or object in the Follyfoot series?  Members would post what they thought was the correct answer to each question and whoever had written the quiz would confirm the accuracy of the replies. As an example:-

Illegal drug            Opium
Type of Fruit         Apple
Broadcasting Medium         Radio
Price Reduction         Discount

Rearrange the letters to get DORA


1.  Type of well
2.  Famous 19th century explorer of the African continent
3.  Its speed is 768 mph at sea level
4.  It made history on the 15th April 2012
5.  The study of living organisms
6.  Alternative name for football
7.  Equilibrium

Have fun.  I expect that you will solve it by the morning
