I'm using a Chromebook and would like to use my mousepad to select the answers and the scrolling keys to scroll down the page but that just scrolls through the answers for the question that I've just done, which means I'm answering, then mouse over the edge bar, drag down to see the next two questions, two answers, repeat. There isn't a cat in hell's chance that I'm going to go sub-60 seconds messing around like that let alone some of the freakishly quick 30 seconds that some of you put up.
Basic HP laptop with basic HP mouse. I find it a lot more difficult to navigate rapidly on the odd occasion I've had to do the quiz on my phone.

Nothing to do with the BE challenge, in fact all you are challenging is yourself, This is a game for any of you who remember the 'Mastermind' code breaking game, plays exactly the same, you have just 6 guesses to guess the word. https://www.powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/ I've done it for the last three days, got all three, one 6th guess the others 5 guesses. Can't have anything specific to BE but still a bit of fun.

I did that already but then I had to drink them before they went flat. Nobody arrived to drink them. Stingychips kept everyone away.

He wasn't willing to show his vax passport - "what's the point of vaccines anyway?" - but he still got in.

At least I won't come bottom today. I carefully checked I wouldn't hit the maintenance slot BEFORE doing the quiz. Always knew maintenance was 10:00 am, but forgot about the wintertime change when it becomes 09:00am in the UK.

As I've said many a time, I was never into History.
But these History questions strike me as more general knowledge.

It's like "Born in 1992, this Egyptian scores goals for Liverpool."
I mean, it's a football question, but mention the year he was born and therefore it's History.
Or is it Geography because there's a reference to where he was born?

That's a sport question, not history. The sorting algorithm on the site probably just pulled it in because it has 1992 in the text.

Actually that was my example. It didn't come from the site, I made it up myself to illustrate the point.

From your response I must have done it very well
