Space debris, an ancient tree, and next year’s Oscars host – take Thursday’s quiz

They say the Mills of the Gods grind slowly, but they grind very well. In stark contrast, the Thursday test comes every week too quickly, and instead of saying it’s “good,” there are a lot of people out there. As a result, the sulfur quests continue, and you will encounter 14 other obscure topical and general knowledge puzzles that will feature almost all of your favorite jokes. There are no prizes, it’s just for fun. Tell us how you get feedback, where you can secure bonus points by spotting Doctor Who slashes and being funny.

8.1966 and all that: a series of non-football-related questions leading up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, in which England’s European champion Beth Mead said the ban on homosexuality was ‘the opposite of what I believe and respect’. .

Wayne Rooney

14.Sulfur Question for GCSE Science of the Week: Despite what I’ve argued repeatedly in the comments, the IUPAC spells it sulfur, GCSE examiners spell it sulfur, and Thursday’s test says it’s sulfur. What color is sulfuric acid (not pictured, this is just someone looking under a microscope)?

If you think there is something critically wrong with one of the questions or answers, feel free to email martin.belam@theguardian.com, but remember that the quizmaster is final, and he often wishes he was the type confident enough to confirm in the comments that the year The one Tammy Winnett hit with DIVORCE was wrong on Thursday’s test without bothering to look for it first.
