General Knowledge

Does anybody have any favourite general knowledge questions?

I've got to do a 2009/Christmas quiz, and so far all I have is "Who was Swindon twined with earlier this year."

Name the "cambridge five" spy ring. (ok ok it was probably bigger than 5 but these were the main ones identified by Gordievsky) You could even give bonus points for the cryptonym.

Kim Philby (cryptonym stanley),
Donald Duart Maclean (cryptonym homer),
Guy Burgess (cryptonym hicks),
Anthony Blunt (cryptonym johnson).
John Cairncross (cryptonym liszt)

plus I know this is a little late :-)
