You simply need to get up earlier if you want that more often.
Or party longer (although that usually guarantees a rather short-lived lead).

One of today's answers is, again, as wrong as a wrong thing that is incorrect but, in it's favour, it is righter than the other wrong answers.

Wow, possibly one the most America-centric questions ever in today's quiz. WTF do they mean by the NATO Phonetic Alphabet? It's the International Phonetic Alphabet. It's used all over the world by many organisations other than NATO. It wasn't invented by NATO. It wasn't even invented in America. [Mad]

Well when I was last in the forces (OK, the OTC and TA) it was called the NATO phonetic alphabet to distinguish it from other systems such as the old British foces radio alphabet (Able, B**** Charlie...) and the RAF version (they had a different one because they are special).

The International Phonetic Alphabet is a system of symbols where each symbol represents a particular sound, designed to reproduce the pronunciation of a word rather than clarify its spelling.

Lucky Guess Piglet has, I hope, temporarily, been replaced by Brainless Guess Piglet.

If I'd used my brain cells (both of them) for question 1 I'd have been much further up the board than I am. [Frown]
