Germany were one of the first to win it I think, not sure if it was within the first three years though.  Also Uruguay won it not long after they won the first.

That was The Thomas Lipton Trophy, not really the world cup. There was a tv show back in the eighties about it starring Dennis Waterman ( he didn't sing the feem tune), think it was called a Captains Story, remember it being really good.

a lake is fed by a river(s). a pond is fed by rain.

It's all about size. If it's not quite as big as a lake, it's a pond. If it's too big to be a pond, it's a lake. Simple science. This is how it goes ... lake, pond, pool, puddle, small puddle.

I'm telling you, ponds are shallower than lakes, if a plant can grow in the deepest part of the water then it's a pond, if a plant can't grow in the deepest part then it's a lake...

Well, they either grow or they don't.

If sheeps denies my suggestion as the answer after denying the World Cup one then I'm going to be very disappointed in this so called 'fantastic quiz'
sheeps

Be dissapointed then cos Geoff got the pond / river one correct.
bearing

So then clever clogs, explain the workings of a mill pond to me?

Don't forget though, ponds are only fed by rainwater and not by flowing water.

And anyway, where is your proof that your answer is correct, you could be making it up.

Crater lakes aren't fed by rivers or any body of water, they are just filled up with snow melt and rain.

There seems to be a lot of lakes in the World that have no feed

I see he's not been in to remedy his disaster of a quiz
Pond Life

What can he do? It is irretrievable!
bearing

It gets worse...

It has also come to my attention through google (needs must when a quiz has gone this bad) that Mr T or B A Baracus was actually called Bosco Albert Baracus.  This was told us by his mother in the episode 'Lease with an Option to Die'

In the question posted by sheeps,  shown thus: 9. In the 1970's TV series 'The A Team' what did B A Baracus' initials stand for it states in the 1970's series, this sadly is incorrect as the first episode was aired in 1983, quite clearly in the 1980's...
Pond Life

This is becoming to big to step over. It is these sorts of things that kill the internets.

With regards to question 2 it asks us Which Minister of Transport introduced the 'breathalyser'

This piece below seems to suggest its introduction had nothing to do with any transport ministers.

Geoff, I understand what you're saying, but this is bigger than any of us.  The quiz section is a bastion of fairness and episodes like this dull the shine somewhat.

bearing wrote:

According to Wikipedia, I wasn't far wrong.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metal_umlaut

"Mötley Crüe formed in 1980; according to Vince Neil in the band's Behind the Music edition, the inspiration came from a Löwenbräu bottle."

It's quite an interesting Wiki article. I'd forgotten just how many bands also gratuitously used an umlaut. Blue Öyster Cult, Hüsker Dü, Queensrÿche etc.

Not least, and something I wasn't previously aware of, "The spoof band Spın̈al Tap raised the stakes in 1984 by using an umlaut over the letter n; i.e., over a consonant. This construction is in fact found in the Jakaltek language of Guatemala and in some orthographies of Malagasy, a language of Madagascar."

To my mind, that is almost on a par with the legendary volume control "that goes up to 11".
