[Just for Fun][Peter's Weekly Quiz] Quiz 1 03/02/13-10/02/13

Community Legend

Hey everyone! 🙂 

 

Welcome to the second installment of my weekly(ish) quizes! Hope you enjoy! I have tried to make it a bit easier this week!

 

Rules:

1. Quiz questions will be posted on Sunday, and the topic is open for answers until the Sunday after (so 7 days). All times are in GMT, so you must submitted before 00:00 GMT on Monday to be eligible to win.

2. There is no "prize" as such (maybe sometime in the future I will be feeling generous) but I do give you permission if you win to link to this topic in your signature and call yourself a winner to brag to the other community members. 

3. This quiz is open to all community members including Spotify staff, community experts and super users. 

4. In the spirit of quizzing, I ask you to be honest in your answering and not use Google or any other search engine to locate the answers.

5. You may work in teams if you like (so you can share winning). I do ask if you are going to do this, get 1 team member to post the answers and clearly link to the other's community profiles in the post. 

6. Quiz master's decision is final.

7. In the event of a discrepancy with the answers, that question will simply be discounted. 

8. In the event of a tie between 2 or more individual or teams, there will be a deciding question. It will be posted on the topic and PMed to all members of the decider. The first individual/team to reply with the correct answer wins. 

 

Questions:

1. Before 1687 clocks never had what?

 

2. Which TV family lived at 000 Cemetery Lane?
