I think it's a generational thing

Grant, I've never desired to have a tattoo. I'm not fond of how they look most of the time. My daughter has several. Some are pretty big too. I guess I just don't understand the need for multiple tattoos and body piercings. I don't see the point. Besides...what does it look like 30 or 40 years later?
 
grant228 2014-09-29 06:33:36
I'm about to bite the bullet and ask what do people think about tattoos?

Bill, an interesting coincidence with Peoplequiz's birthday Girl Olivia N J singing our national anthem at today's AFL Grand Final. Unfortunately the Sydney Swans got their bottoms smacked by a rampaging Hawthorn Hawks.

I heard his nephew is taking his place in the band. Rock on dudes!

For all fans of AC/DC, especially Dart - sad news this morning that Malcolm Young has been admitted to a nursing home suffering dementia. Time gets us all in the end!

We welcome all visitors to PeopleQuiz!

PeopleQuiz is a small site that Dave and I run in our spare time. We’re not financially-backed by some faceless mega-conglomerate but finance most of the site out of our own pockets and the slim amount of revenue from ads. As our name implies, our focus is on trivia about people! We pride ourselves in providing personal service to all our players and quiz authors.

There are a few features that are completely unique to PeopleQuiz!
1. PeopleQuiz is the only trivia site that links trivia quizzes to the biography of the person about which the quiz is written.
2. PeopleQuiz is the only site on the web that has BiographyQuizzes®. People love them!
3. RapidFireTrivia® – Random trivia coming at you at the speed of light! Well, not quite, but it is fast.

I personally edit and publish all the quizzes submitted to our site. I love giving authors assistance in writing quizzes and pride myself on my writing abilities. So, if you’re not sure if you can write a quiz, just let me know and I’ll be glad to help.

Naturally, most of our quiz authors write about people or topics they like or with which they are familiar. It’s a great way to share your knowledge about most anything and leave your mark permanently at the site.

Again, welcome to our little community of friends in trivia! As one of our best players says, “it’s just plain fun!”

Bill & Dave

Bill, you have nailed it! Those who profess to be "royal" epitomize celebrity in that they are famous for being famous. They don't possess any special talents, except the ability to make inane small talk day in, day out, but are endowed with some magical, mystical aura by the deluded adoring crowds. I think the majority of Scots, like the majority of Aussies in 1999, felt important that a "big" nation like England had an interest in them hence didn't want to sever the umbilical cord. We Aussies are always wanting to star on the world stage hence our reluctance to farewell colonial Britain. We only think we've "arrived" if the world's big boys take notice of us. If there's a news event that concerns Australia and receives coverage overseas, our news services will show how your media cover it! I can't imagine your media giants doing that when the shoe is on the other foot. One day we'll grow up.

Grant, you are too funny! As an American, I can only imagine what frustration you and your political allies are experiencing. You know what it is, Grant? A desire for "fluff." Some people just go for that stuff. They love to read the tadloids and news reports about the royal fluffsters and relish it even deeper when they present their precious keesters in their own back yard! There will always be fluff lovers and so goes the vote!
 
grant228 2014-09-20 01:09:15
Dave, in 1999 my countrymen and women showed the same pusillanimous streak when asked if they wanted to become a republic. I thought the majority of Scots were made of sterner stuff and the spirit of Sterling Bridge may prevail. It looks as if people of today are prepared to accept the status quo without giving it too much thought. I might emigrate!
 
dave 2014-09-19 21:59:17
Don't sugar coat it Grant!! :).
 
grant228 2014-09-19 05:44:27
In light of the Scottish referendum result, that stirring tribute to Scottish courage - Scotland the Brave - needs renaming. How about Scotland the Meek? Scotland the 'fraid? What a bunch of wimps! I'm sure those souls who fell at Culloden in the cause of Scottish independence and the icon of Scottish freedom, William Wallace, have shed a tear wherever they may be.
 
bill 2014-09-17 10:19:40
It takes a bit of doing to decide which quizzes go where. For example, should Hitler go in both the History category and the German History category (he was actually Austrian but never mind that)? In his case, I've decided to do so.

There is a fine line between having a Personality Quiz in too many categories and not enough categories. More of an art than a science!
 
bill 2014-09-17 10:12:39
Kick 'em out, Dave!
 
dave 2014-09-17 08:47:06
Bill, this is great. We need more quizzes on History and European History is my favorite.
 
bill 2014-09-16 23:17:04
Gang - I spent a great deal of time today reworking the History category. I eliminated a couple of categories including "World History." I added several categories as follows - Chinese History, French History, German History, Indian History, Israeli History, Italian History and Russian History. This will make things tighter for Google searches so folks can find our quizzes better.

I also spent hours moving quizzes in and out of categories that I thought to be repetitive or inappropriate for that quiz.

I thought this was way over due and, as with much of our work, it's a work in progress.

Please let me know if you have other thoughts about the History category or any other categories that might need reworking.

You make PeopleQuiz rock!
 
grant228 2014-09-16 16:00:28
And so say all of us! One of our politicians has been calling for everyone to be part of a nation of "lifters" not "leaners". Getting rid of this classic case of leaners would be an excellent example to everyone!
 
bill 2014-09-16 09:05:05
You never have been one for holding back, Grant! It's high time this royalty stuff gets debunked! Get a real job, mate! :-)
 
grant228 2014-09-16 06:51:54
Bill, as a staunch republican I'm hoping the Scots stand tall and free and tell the Poms they no longer need them (I was tempted use stronger language but realised this is a family blog). It might show my timid countrymen who roll over like puppies to have their tummies tickled every time some "royal" deigns to visit, that their allegiance is tied to a shrinking concern. The French revolutionaries had the right idea when it came to royalty! I'm hoping Nessie's vote won't be necessary.
 
bill 2014-09-15 22:46:30
So Grant, I'd love to hear your thoughts about the upcoming Scottish seccesion vote. They say that Nessie will cast the deciding vote if it comes to a draw! Hilarious!
 
 
dave 2014-09-15 22:32:31
Wow!!!
 
grant228 2014-09-15 07:18:39
Here's the proof of a summer's day in Alberta. The date on the pic is in day/month/year format.

Zen, in reference to the Miss America pageant, I was born drooling; that's my normal modus operandi. I shift into panting mode for the Miss America pageant...
 
grant228 2014-09-13 00:29:47
Bill, I have to agree with Dave. Oceania is the region. Oceanic is the adjective. Knowing where you live, I think you've got quite a drive to reach the ocean!
 
bill 2014-09-12 23:29:08
Grant, we don't have that kind of weather here yet! For the most part, it's still summer.

Dave, I think I'm going to jump in the Ocean after all this discussion!
 
dave 2014-09-12 20:24:49
Bill, the only continent is Australia. Oceania is the region. I'm positive the term your looking for for the geographic region is Oceania. Oceanic would be an adjective not a noun. I have no idea what Oceanian would be.
 
grant228 2014-09-12 15:59:48
Bill, I've heard oceanic but not oceanian. By the way, you and your fellow northerners must be a tough breed. My teacher currently on exchange in Alberta sent a photo on Wednesday showing her school blanketed by snow! I thought it was still summer over there?
 
bill 2014-09-12 12:07:42
Right, that's the name of the continent. However, I'm looking for the correct demonym. For example, I wrote, "North American Geography." North American refers to the residents of North America or belonging to North America.

So what is correct for Oceania? If not Oceanian, I guess it must be Oceanic. Grant?
 
dave 2014-09-12 10:54:23
In business in North America we use Oceania
 
bill 2014-09-12 09:16:10
What should it read, Grant? Oceanic?
