Well, Guru doesn't and we need your help! See if you can answer these amazingly difficult questions and win yourself the joy of being right!
That doesn’t look fun at all
Why might some Thais - particularly lazy ones - stop using the subway for the next few months?
A) Because it'll be so damn hot that no one will venture outside.
B) Because passenger B.O. is expected to reach an all-time high.
C)Because security guards are actually going to start checking people's bags at each station.
D)Because escalators at various subway stations will be turned off to save energy. Much to the chagrin of Bangkok passengers who tremble at the thought of using stairs, the Bangkok Metro Plc (BMCL) will shut down descending escalators between 9am to 4pm from April 1 to June 30. Besides reducing electricity, the BMCL says the plan will help them lower costs as they spend about one million baht a day to keep all the escalators running. That's all fine and great for them, but maybe they forgot about Bangkok's older and disabled population who may need to use the escalators? How about turning off all those TVs that only play commercials instead?!
What record was recently set at an annual comedy festival in Michigan?
A)Most cases of heckling at a given time.
B)Most incidents of lame jokes.
C) Most number of virgins gathered in one place.
D) Most people wearing fake moustaches. Organisers of Gilda's LaughFest say that 1,544 people put on various false 'staches to the event and have helped set the (pointless) record. Last year the festival broke the record for most people wearing fake animal noses and the year before that it set the bar for most people tossing rubbing chickens. Perhaps next year they'll try to break the record for most people slipping on a banana peel?
Why did a hotel open in central London last week for one night only?
A) Because guests swore it was haunted.
B)Because it failed all inspections after opening.
C) Because the smell from the curry shop next door was too overpowering.
D)Because the hotel was made entirely of cake and other sweet treats. The three storey and eight room edible hotel was concocted to promote a new range of items from Tate & Lyle Sugars. Among the features were walls and windows made from 2,000 macaroons (the windowsills were fudge, naturally), rugs stitched from meringues, and a bathtub filled with caramel-coated popcorn. It took 14 artists almost 3,000 hours of baking and decorating, as well as over 600 kilogrammes of sugar, to complete the hotel.
