On pub quizzes.

In a tale of woe to follow on Thursday, I went to a quiz for the local Rugby Club on Saturday night. There were four of us in the team. TDT's friends Barbara (specialist subjects, General Knowledge and gossip columns) and Eddie (specialist subject, sport), TDT (specialist subject, filling in the answer form) and me (specialist subject, the crap that no-one else should ever know). We didn't win, but we did have some real pearlers when it came to wrong answers. So, this week, I'll give you some of the questions we failed historically badly, and I'd like you to guess at the answers given. Obviously, TDT, you can't answer these questions...
  1. What gas is the earth's atmosphere 80% made up of?
  2. Where are Hyundai cars made?
  3. What is the capital of Haiti? (we did get this right in the end...)
  4. What is Tiger Woods' real first name?
  5. Where was snooker invented?
  6. When did England first win the Rugby World Cup?
  7. Who refereed Saturday's Rugby game between Ireland and South Africa (Not sure on the Irish opponent, but I'm taking a wild guess)
  8. Where are the Lachrymal Glands?
  9. Who's this?
  10. What were we doing, expecting to actually win?
Answers on a postcode... etc etc.
