back to article Bond fans: Test your 007 trivia, now!

As the dust settles on on our recent round of Bond polls - in which readers voted Ernst Stavro Blofeld, Sean Connery and Casino Royale the vilest Bond villain, the ultimate movie Bond and the best Bond film, respectively - we're offering fans the chance to see if they've really got what it takes to hold the coveted 00 number. …

WTF?

..."you can glean the correct responses from our source code" ??

If that is true then your statement probably qualifies as one of the most ill considered and stupid statements in the history of the Internet.

Re: ..."you can glean the correct responses from our source code" ??

as they said, doing so is not cricket. it's on your honour as a gentleman to not hack the code and take the test in the spirit in which is was intended.

besides, there's no cash prize, there's not even a leaderboard, so no one's going to know the score you get. if you waste your time cheating and looking at the code, the only person you are cheating is yourself. no one else is going to know or care. but y'know, whatever you need to do to boost your self esteem...

"What on God's Green Earth are you talking about?"

Many people would think that posting a quiz and then saying that the answers all in the web page source code was pretty stupid. Obviously not everyone thinks that. Or even seems to understand it.

Re: Re: ..."you can glean the correct responses from our source code" ??

Evidently, you're the only one who thinks that. It wouldn't take our savvy readers long to work out they could get the answers from the source code, so we simply flagged the fact up front.

We mere mortals bow to your greater understanding of what constitutes stupidity, since we're clearly in need of enlightenment.

Re: ..."you can glean the correct responses from our source code" ??

Evidently you are the only one one who never thought about creating a quiz, and a damned good quiz too, WITHOUT the answers in the source code.

Savvy readers would certainly check to see if the answers were there but saying so up front only means that EVERYONE gets to do that and therefore all scores are meaningless.

Hmm.

15/50

Considering I've only read the Fleming books, and I've not seen a Bond movie post Moore, I'm not too disappointed.

Were you just clicking answers at random?

No, but apparently I'm not very good at Bond trivia, but that's ok by me.

A measley 19, and that mostly with guess-work

Not bad considering some of them were extremely trivial trivia.

Lots of fun nevertheless. Well done, have a Pint!

Very hard

I consider myself a huge bond fan and I got 28/50 and even then some were lucky guesses.

I mean, knowing the exact punctuation of the numberplate of the Goldfinger Aston? Blimey.

Still, thanks for posting the quiz up; it was fun.

Re: Very hard

24/50 - Fortunately Skyfall last night put the Aston's plate into my head, but an awful lot of (lucky) guesswork.

BBC Iplayer has a feature from top gear on bond cars... ;)

There were only 3 answers that I didn't think were guesses, and all were wrong. Guess I know stuff all about Bond films. My heart is breaking.

I'll explain how hard the quiz is: I drew up the questions, but that was a couple of months back. My memory being what it is, I managed 41/50.

Again, some with educated guesses and some complete stabs in the dark.. Although I did honestly know a good 4 or 5 of them :o)

That was a bit in-depth.

20 / 50 and a few guesses (maybe three) I swear some were wrong answers, I will of course now watch quantam of solace and on her majestys secret service to prove I am right and should have another three points.

I shouldn't bother watching Quantum of Solace (Question of Sport) again, if I were you. There's only so many hours in a lifetime, and I'm sure you could usefully spend that time getting your cutlery really sparkling clean...

on the second question - surely even mega-anoraks don't know the model numbers of the autogyro!

Re: I gave up...

I confess that one was a complete guess for me. I happened to get it right, but not through any knowledge.

But I could have told you it was designed and flown by Ken Wallis though.

26 for me

Which seems to put me much higher up the list than I'd expected!

Good grief...

I thought I knew the Bond series pretty well, but I ended up with 26. Some inspired guesses, I think I actually knew less than 10.

I second guessed myself on a few - I knew Bell made jet packs, but I had it in my mind somewhere that the Bond one was made by Boeing.

Bloody hard, but some interesting trivia in there.

Took my 11-year-old to see Skyfall last weekend. He thought it was brilliant.

Scored 32/50.

Not too bad, actually better than I thought it would be.

Some of you do remember your stuff though (you with your 40s), well done!
