Anyway, as Amit mentions in the end of his post, check out Niranjan's primers (1, 2, 3.) on setting quizzes (to which I've made a small contribution). Perhaps they need a little touching-up, but they're perennially relevant.
In other news, a certain Salil Bijur catapulted into top spot in the rankings of the local BCQC Page 3 Quizzers League given his recent appearance in this pub quiz (scroll past the large expanses of skin to the bottom - I must admit that doesn't sound very decent). It didn't go all according to plan since he missed the question on the country with the oldest flag (Denmark), a sitter if there ever was. Too bad they weren't serving chestnuts with the drinks :-)
