1. Pick a mineral.
2. What time is dinner?
6pm, after you get home from work.
1pm, sure you're starving by then. Later on we'll have the tea.

8pm. You've made reservations at that new restaurant you read about in the Culture magazine.
3. You get stuck behind a slow-moving tractor while out driving. What do you do?
Beep the horn and flash your lights. Are they even ALLOWED on a main road?!
Nothing. That's Dessie Flynn's young lad, he'll be taking the next left turn anyway.

Wait patiently, albeit with a little surge of annoyance, until they let you overtake.
4. Finish the lyric (without Googling): "Rock me mama like a wagon wheel/Rock me mama ___ ____ ____ ____"
We'll do a reel
Let's make a deal

Any way you feel
Like Jessica Biel
5. Which one of these is 'a bag of Taytos'?

6. How far away is your nearest neighbour?
Their house is literally attached to your house.
Across the hall, in apartment 2B.

A couple of minutes' walk away.
Ten miles down the road. You can just about see the chimney over the hill.
7. Do you use the front door or the back door to get into your house?
Front door. The back only leads to the garden.
Back door. What would we be using the front door for?
8. In which of these places is it NOT acceptable to wear a GAA jersey?
9. Would you touch an electric fence 'for the craic'?
Of course. You've done it loads of times.
Are you mad?!

If everybody else was doing it...
Nah. But you'd dare someone else to do it.
10. Which, in your opinion, is the most reliable form of securing your home against intruders?
Susan Daly
Locking the doors and hoping for the best.
House alarm.

Leaving the radio on when you're not at home, to fool potential burglars.
Getting someone to watch the house for you while you're away (at a funeral, for example).
11. And finally: Do you care about road frontage, really?
