Oh Quiz Master ...... if I (hypothetically) had the dvd of a hypothetical film and happened to watch said hypothetical film (just by chance) and then got the answer to a question at any point either now or in the future, is that against the rules? ;)

OldMike
04-08-18, 09:56 PM
Hypothetically if you already had the DVD and hypothetically accidentally happened to watch it then that is okay ;)

BUT if you in a premeditated manner went out and purchased or rented the movie in physical (DVD/Blu-ray) or digital form or streamed it knowing that the answer to a quiz question may be contained within, then that would be against the rules and spirit of the quiz and I would have to whip out my quiz master's red pen and strike out the answer and issue a formal warning and deduct 5 points.

The above is just hypothetical as I know no Princess would ever employ such devious tactics ;)

Suzi
04-08-18, 11:00 PM
Hypothetically I can watch the movie too as it's on our server?

Paula
05-08-18, 08:06 AM
Hypothetically ;)

OldMike
05-08-18, 08:27 AM
After discussion with my legal team it was decided hypothetically that it is permissible to watch a movie (which may or may not have the hypothetical answer to a hypothetical quiz question) that is stored on a personal server providing you watch the WHOLE movie and do NOT skip through just to find a hypothetical answer to a hypothetical question.

Light bulb idea, in the next quiz a question about the etymology of the word hypothetical its uses and derivation may or may not be include this is of course purely hypothetical ;)

Paula
05-08-18, 02:12 PM
Watch the whole of The Full Monty? Not a problem! It came out when I was 7 months pregnant with Katie and I was laughing so hard the woman next to me in the cinema was worried Iíd go into labour (rofl)

Suzi

Sings one week to go only one week to go, I'm willing to give an extension if I'm assured there are going to be delayed entries due to personal circumstances.

Quick update Team Suzi is currently in first place I can say that without fear of contraception (eeps I shouldn't have worn my Hilda Baker outfit today (giggle)) as the only entry her team must be in the lead (hypothetically), so lets make this a contest to be written in the annals of time.

Cue dramatic music.

As the sun rises quizzers from DWD rouse from their slumbers and dive in to the far reaches of the unknown universe that is the DWD quiz.



What do we want today?
A quiz to lighten our way.
You've got one here if you may.
So do it NOW and don't delay.
It's free, you need not pay.
Hip hip hooray.
Make this your mantra for the day.

19-08-18, 09:08 PM
I shall confirm the winner sometime tomorrow, I've an appointment with nursey for a blood test tomorrow morning then probably lunch out then I'll subject your submissions to the utmost scrutiny and announce the result later tomorrow.

Is it going to be Princess Sparkles' team or The Boss Lady's team, it is going down to the wire, will there be a a hung quiz (dead heat), will there be a request for a recount, will questions be asked in parliament!!?

So far the exit polls are inconclusive, it's the real result that counts. Who will be the new prime minister erm quiz winner (got carried away there) (giggle)
