Each of th­ese is a quiz ques­tion in its own right, but the an­swers con­nect to a com­mon theme, which could be any­thing from plumb straight­for­ward to bizarrely lat­eral. 1. What is the term for ex­press freight trains or im­pres­sively suc­cess­ful and vain peo­ple, and is also the ti­tle of a 1991 com­edy spoof star­ring Char­lie Sheen? 2. What dis­ease of the pe­riph­eral nerves is caused by a de­fi­ciency of vi­ta­min B1 (thi­amine)? 3. Which North African dish con­sists of steamed se­molina tra­di­tion­ally served with veg­eta­bles and meat? 4. What Nova Sco­tian and Amer­i­can pick­led rel­ish is made from a com­bi­na­tion of veg­eta­bles, mainly green tomato, cab­bage, chay­ote, red toma­toes, onions, car­rots, beans, as­para­gus, cauliflower and peas?

5. The lo­ca­tion of the Hob­biton set in Peter Jack­son’s The Lord of

the Rings film tril­ogy is a farm that lies close to which ru­ral town in New Zealand?
