OK, yet another complaint, I played a brainoff t'other day that asked me who Jimmy Clark was, didn't know, never heard of him, answer was a Racing Driver. The great JIM Clark. Today Jim Clark turns out to be some Yank copper ?? Sorry but I think in terms of world recognition a World Champion racer should have the honour of his usual name used and not play second fiddle to a plod.

Jim Clark the racing driver appeared once as Jimmy Clark and I have fixed that. The policeman appears only in the "They died in 2007" subject so the racing driver is not an option there.

In Operatic Arias the opera should be "Tristan und Isolde", not "Tristan Undo Isolde" Thank you.

I think someone beat me to fixing that but I spotted a "Tristan and Isolde" elsewhere so I changed that to be consistent.

in advertizing slogans one of the qustions refers to the sweet that "melts in your mouth and not in your hand" and the correct answer identified as m&m' s. That phrase was used to advertise "Treats".... can't you remember the advert ?

Minstrels, Treets and M&Ms were all marketed using that slogan or very similar ones. Minstrels and Treets were never sold in New Zealand so we did not have those ads.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Treets are a brand of confectionery sold by Mars Limited in the United Kingdom, France and Germany.
sorry I got the spelling wrong it is Treets

They came in three forms: Peanut Treets (sold in a yellow packet), Toffee Treets (sold in a blue packet) and Chocolate Treets (sold in a brown packet). All three were coated in a thin hard glazed shell which was a dark chocolate colour. The filling of the button-shaped Chocolate Treet was made of milk chocolate, a substance which also surrounded the peanut or toffee pellet in the other flavours. All three were marketed with the slogan "Treets melt in your mouth, not in your hand".

The brand was dropped by Mars in 1988. Chocolate Treets had already been replaced with the similar Minstrels. Peanut Treets were dropped in favour of the multi-coloured Peanut M&M's. Toffee Treets were later sold as Relays before being dropped altogether.

Mars reintroduced the Peanut Treets brand in the UK, France and Germany in July 2009. Peanut M&Ms continue to be sold in the UK alongside Treets.

dear factacular. Is it de rigeur to inform you of mistakes when found or do you regularly review and change. The reason i ask is that in the section "they died in 2009" you have John mortimer itemized as a actor. The only acting done by Mortimer was in a school play of Richard the Third at the Dragon School in Harrow. Mortimer was a novelist playwright radio dramatist etc and creator of "Rumpole of the Bailey". But the part of Rumpole was played by Leo McKern.....

Oh, inform. Definitely inform. This place is far too much of a heaving behemoth to be able to review with any chance of success.

Quite right, of course - and fitting that you should point it out.

They are there to prevent a problem that was occurring when the question "Which musical act contains the number 5?" came up. There were two correct answer choices appearing: 'Maroon _____' and 'Jackson _____'.

The Jackson Five are known by both 5 and Five so the easiest solution was to add both options to stop that happening.

Looking over the the other entries it doesn't really seem to belong. We don't have the North and South Island of New Zealand for example and Tasmania is equivalent to them in terms of status.
