    Who Wants to be a Millionaire

    Retired taxi driver from Musselburgh did brilliantly last night to pocket a cool £125,000. Would have got the £250,000 question right too had he risked it.
    Sported an emerald green jumper. Ok, not everyone who wears emerald green is a Hibbie, but I wondered if he is. Anyone on here know him?
    EDIT: I stand corrected on his bail out question which he would have got wrong, like most of us.

    He would have got the 250k wrong no?

    The answer was Austria and he would have said Poland?

    He was great though

    But is he a Hibee

    Done really well was a good watch though in saying that getting a question on someone he had in his cab is a little fortuitous

    He definitely would have got the £250k question wrong so made the right decision to pass on that one.

    Which country shares the longest land border with Germany?

    He would have said Poland but the answer was Austria.

    Austria longest, then The Netherlands! The two he thought it was between, as would most - France and Poland - are shorter. Very tricky question.

    I wish I'd been his phone a friend. I could have told him that

    He’d used the lifelines by then but his reaction to his sister knowing the answer to an earlier question when he called her was fantastic, he was convinced she wouldn’t have a clue but she knew it right away.

    I really felt for him when he made an erse of reading out the question to his other phone a friend. Just obviously lost it for a bit and couldn’t get his composure again.

    Must be so easy done in that environment, surprised you don’t see it more.

    I can confirm he is a lifelong Hibby. Been going to ER since 1962 and took me to my first game when I was 4 years old.

    I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often as well but I think that's the first time I remember seeing someone not read out the full question to their phone a friend.

    The guy was great.

    He’s been a member at the same golf club as me for a good while. Always let on to him and when the bar was open have had a blether with him now and again. Never until this morning did I know his name!

    There's a border between Germany and Austria?

    It was not one of the options but look at a map and you'll see how hard a question it was. Lots of the borders look a similar length. And there are as many as nine countries with German borders! Taught me how bad my own geography knowledge is. Clockwise from the north - Denmark, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands.
    But at least we've got them surrounded.

    Aye, but how much are you getting, K 😉

    He came over and had a word in the afternoon to tell us he was on. Adam and his pal cheering when they seen him. He looked a bit upset when he missed the fastest finger the first time round.

    No doubt the garden lawn will be getting an upgrade. 😂

    Sue him. There’s a lot of emotional trauma in there.

    My little boys teacher was on before him and he won £1£5k as well. No need to worry about his orange jumper as he is s Wrexham fan 😂

    I got several messages from friends saying we all worked together with Raymond more than 40 years ago! I'm sure he'll remember me!! 😁
