Welcome!

I’m Dave Price. When you listen to my programme on Care Radio UK, you’ll know almost immediately that I LOVE quizzes, conundrums and brain teasers!

Research, including this from ‘Your Brain Matters’ tells-us, to live a brain-healthy life, you need to look after your brain, your body, and your heart. They are all important. Keep your brain challenged and be socially active. Scientists have found that challenging the brain with new activities helps to build new brain cells and strengthen connections between them.

With that in mind, on and off-air, I challenge you to tackle on some of my favourite quizzes and brain teasers from around the globe.

Here are a few to keep you occupied:

These are 7- second riddles….you’ve got to be quick to spot the odd-one out and then have a bit of lateral thinking to get the answers to some of the riddle posed…remember, you only have seven seconds per questions…

In this clip from National Geographic, comedian Ben Bailey is quizzing people’s common sense with a few trick questions. Think you can’t be fooled? Play along by clicking on the video.

These clips from Open Culture and TED Ed are ideal if you have a little more time to spare….

Here is a quick quiz for History fans…you may wish to pause quickly between the questions and answers as it moves pretty quickly!

If English Literature is your area of expertise, try this quiz…another quiz where the answers are required quickly…ready…steady….GO!

On searching the World Wide Web, I came across this COMPLETELY RANDOM quiz from CNN Entertainment for SERIOUS fans of the movie ‘Back to the Future’…go on, give it a try….

Finally…I love films and this video is great fun (as long as you like MC Hammer!)…can you identify these cinematic classics from the short clips shown? Answers at the end of the video.
