    Any question is easy if you know the answer and impossibly difficult if you don't.

    We have quiz at work, quite often you get shown a picture of a celebrity and four names and you have to say what their name is.

    Invariably I have never seen the person before in my life and I don't recognise any of the four names either.

    The youngsters get all those right but if you asked them what the capital of South Dakota is they would say 'What's South Dakota?'

    Haha - the only soap opera I watch are the repeats of "M.A.S.H" on the Sony Channel. I have never watched Eastenders or Coronation Street.

    Happy rarely watches TV, and if she does they are likely to be programmes about antiques.

    Why would anyone in the UK need to know the capital of South Dakota? Not really relevant knowledge, mind you nor is knowing celebrities. Unless one is doing a pub quiz of course.

    I certainly wouldn't know most so called celebrities these days, what with no broadcast (shite) TV.

    MASH is a sitcom not a soap. So you don't actually watch any soaps at all.

    Only soap I ever followed was Brookside as helped with homesickness. But I quit that cold turkey back in about 1992. Don't think they have it anymore.

    And there was Neighbours when it first started and was on at lunchtimes while I was sagging school. I remember the episode when Kylie first appeared. That was before she was fit. One of the rare women who actually got fitter as she aged.

    yeah but modern personalities etc are really for the young or folk glued to tv. a demijohn is a fairly long lived bit of gear. i mean hundreds if not many hundres of years, and still in use today; fair enough they used to always be wrapped in straw, but the name is fairly well known....oh a s dakota is pierre
