Done

People who haven't done it don't look at this spoiler.

Your test is wrong - the question about speed limit signs. 

"George got into a taxi and as they went along, he saw a speed limit sign, what unit would the road speed limit sign in the UK be in?"

Your 'correct' answer is incorrect.

Yes, officially there are only three countries who use Imperial measurements still - USA, Liberia and Myanmar. However, the UK still uses mph speed limits for no apparent reason.

Knock knock

I wonder who is at the door. Whoever it is, I hope they know a good joke. We all need levity to make it through this cruel life.

I would be happy to talk selfies, autographs etc., but once a year I'd probably organise some sort of meet and greet, proceeds to charity sort of thing.

I'd also probably maintain some sort of cringy social media presence.

I would probably not interact with fans too much, especially if they were Beatlesesque, because SCARY

 

I would probably donate money to charities and use my influence to help out causes I believed in
