(laughs) - Okay, ready? - Yeah, let's give it a go. - Start the quiz. - Let's cracked straight on, there's no point. - No faff, no mess. - No faff. So, which of the following presidents did not die in office? What does in office mean? Like literally in their office? (laughs) - Oh my gosh, imagine if every president died at the desk. - Yeah, but is that what it mean, like they died in-- 'cause they spend a lot of time in their office. - In their office, yeah. No, it means, I think it means which of the following presidents did not die whilst they were in power? - Oh, like in their post. - In office, yeah. In post, not in the office. - In their role as president. - Which president didn't die in the White House? - Well, how do we know? - Okay, so the options are Zachary Taylor, Warren G. Harding - Never heard of him. - Never heard of him. Maybe these are all, like none of them are gonna be-- - William McKinley, John F. Kennedy, - [Both] Heard of him. - Abraham Lincoln. - [Both] Heard of him. - So, we only know John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln, so maybe this is a trick question. - Wasn't Abraham Lincoln shot in a car? He was driving and then they shot him. - Still, I think that means-- - He was in office, oh yeah. (laughs) - You're still like, who wasn't in the office? For that, we should pick him 'cause it's funny. - Okay, let's pick the one that was shot in the car. - The pritch president. - We said Grover Cleveland. (buzzes) - Zachary Taylor. - I've never heard of him. He died in the office? No, he didn't die in the office. - Didn't die in the office. - Where did he die? Maybe out for dinner or something. - Next question. - Oh my gosh. - What is Susan B. Anthony known for? Don't know. - So is she knows for leading the women's rights movement? Is she known for making the first US flag? Or being a western pioneer? - Well, she looks like the kind of woman who has led the female rights movement, doesn't she? - But I've never heard of her name, though. We would've heard of her. - No, but we know more like the British like Emmeline Pankhurst and those kind of people. - Oh, I thought they were just worldwide. - No, I think that the Brits. - We know the Brits. - Yeah, we know the Brits 'cause Meryl Streep played it in that film with Carey Mulligan. The Suffragettes, yeah. - So, should we say women's rights? - Let's just try women's rights. She doesn't look like the kind of person who would've made a flag-- - Or be a pioneer. - Well, she might be a pioneer, but who knows? (dings) - We're right, Susan. Susan was known for leading the women's rights. Why have we never heard of her? - Never heard of her. - Again, 'cause we just focus on ourselves. - All about us. - Which of the following states does not have any land that was acquired in the Louisiana Purchase? I learned about this. - Did you? - In my presentation-- you just burped and that stinks and you had a go at me for farting and now you've burped? - I just didn't know that it was that bad. - Smells like chicken flesh. - Okay, well, apologies. - Accepted. I own up to it, though. I burped. You farted. (laughs) - So, I learned about this when I was doing my preentation on the Appalachian Mountains, but that's not any else to do with this, I'm confused. Anyway, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, or Mississippi. - We're gonna have to do eeny, meeny, miny, moe. - Or just pick the one you think is the most. - Mississippi. - Mississippi. We're right, Mississippi. Well done, you guessed that. - That was just a complete guess. Didn't even read the question. - Well done. - Thanks. - Next. - When was the attack on Pearl Harbor? Should really know this, shouldn't we? - That's a film, isn't it? - I literally no idea. They're just days. December fifth, 1939, December seventh, 1941, it goes on. I don't know. - So, I say we go for-- - So it's only at Christmas, and build up to Christmas. What year? - Which one's jumpin' out at you? (laughs) - I think 1942. I've got December ninth, 1942, I'm just like-- - Okay, we'll go for that then, 'cause I picked Mississippi for the last one. - Okay, let's go for it. - (sighs) It was December seventh, 1941. - So, I was a year and two days off or something. - So, is that the one we guessed? Oh, I see. - Oh well, where was the first battle of the American Revolution? - Oh, this is so hard. Do you know about the American Revolution? - I don't know what a revolution is. It's just a fight, isn't it? People are just fight, fight, fight and then they fight and it's over. - And then there's a big-- I don't know. Is that the American Revolution in the picture? - Yeah, they've got guns and hats and-- - It looks very civilized. - It might be when they fight the British because people keep banging on about Americans defeatin' the British and I don't know, maybe that's how. - We didn't learn about that. - We don't learn about that. Yorktown, Trenton, Saratoga, White Plains, Eutaw Springs. - Let's call it Yorktown. - Yorktown, okay. - Yeah, it just seems like the kind of place they might do that. - Ah, Lexington and Concord. - Not Yorktown. - That's weird, is that where the Concord was made? - Who knows? - Who knows? - What was the first US city to host the Olympics? - LA, New York, St. Louie, or Atlanta? Oh, St. Louis, not St. Louie. (laughs) I think St. Louis. Atlanta-- I think it's LA. The Olympics was at LA a few years ago and I think that was the first time they had ever hosted it. - Was it? What year did LA have the Olympics? - After us, so ours was the 2012. - We had done London 2012. - I think they hosted it. - And then isn't it four years later, isn't it? - Yeah, 2016. No, it wasn't, that was in Beijing. Oh no, Russia. I'm confused. - You remember there being an Olympics in LA? - Yeah. - Well, we'll go for that, then. I just don't think they have enough space. Yeah, not enough space in New York, definitely not. It's St. Louie. - That's got more space to hold it, look. It just looks like the-- doesn't that look-- - LA is so spaced out, there's so much space in LA. - But in the picture, (laughs) if you were like, which one looks like Olympics? You'd just click on that. - Well, you can't build an Olympic stadium on water, can you? - But there's not that thing that you think-- that's quite Olympic. - Well, you should've spoken up. - I should've, I should've followed my instinct. - Continue the quiz, click through. - Okay, number seven. - How many questions are there? - Who knows? - What was the first space mission to successfully land on the moon? Apollo 1, Apollo 8, 11, 13, 14, 18? - Just go for 11. - 11, okay. (chimes) Apollo 11, well done. - Yeah, it's a film, isn't it? - Is it? I thought it was 13. That's Oceans 13, that's different. - Maybe it is Apollo-- I think Apollo 11, it just rang a bell, so I was like oh, it must be that. - Well done. What is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States? William and Mary, Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Georgetown? Harvard? - I would say Harvard, yeah. - That's all we hear about. - That's what we hear about, Harvard and Yale, but Harvard more so. - Amazing, Harvard, we knew it. - Ding, ding, ding. - We're so clever. - Aren't we? Who is the second president of the United States? - George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, John Quincy, John Madison, Andrew Jackson. Literally, heard of no one except George Washington. - It can't be him, obviously. We're gonna have to go for who has the oldest name. John Quincy sounds quite old. Let's go for him. I also quite like that, Quincy. - Quincy, isn't he a detective? - He's a coincidence. (laughs) - Quincy, co-inci-dence. - Oh, it was John Adams. So close for going for John Adams. - Oh, not Quincy, it was Adams. How many years is four score and seven years ago? What? - Four score and seven years ago. - Four score, what does that even mean? - It's slang for either 23, 27, 87, 107, 207 or 407. - This quiz is boring. - [Both] Oh my gosh. - We're gonna be in detention. I don't think it is, but. - Yes, 87. Four score. You said that.
