It took me about 40 seconds to realize these things didn't have to START with X. I'm so used to the other blitzes I didn't read the title.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 10:22 GMT
Surely when you read the first question was numbers 1-10 you figured it out.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 11:27 GMT
A reflex triangle is imaginary, can't exist. A reflex angle is greater than 180 degrees, so can't be a part of a triangle, whose angles must add up to 180 degrees.

Wavering between disappointment that you didn't pick 40 things that start with X and acceptance that there probably aren't 40 good things that start with X. I wonder how long you spent searching before conceding you'd have to do it this way?

Apparently Blitzen was originally called Blixem and then Blixen which you might want to include as alternatives. Here is a link to the original poem - http://rpo.library.utoronto.ca/poem/1312.html. Donner also used to be Dunder but obviously that isn't relevant here. Well done on finding a way to make the X Blitz - just Y and Z to go now.

@hellofromUK: xceedingly kind of you to say so. @bazmerelda: I've added the originals and thanx for the link.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 15:44 GMT
Interesting; I'd never heard of a "reflex" angle at all (although I see through looking it up it's a fairly common term), but there is a term "convex angle," which covers everything up through 180 degrees. (http://www.cs.mcgill.ca/~msuder/projects/507/node19.html)

@TimMierz: great I've added it as an xtra answer. I'm now just going to sit here thinking of silly x words till I'm totally xhausted :)
Sep 17th, 2011 at 02:51 GMT
Slight typo under "MythologIcal river". Otherwise, 100 gold stars to you! Was wondering how you'd do X.
Sep 17th, 2011 at 14:25 GMT
@mimsylou: thanx for the kind words and the good spot.
Sep 18th, 2011 at 18:25 GMT
@slamb: 180 only applies in the plane, which wasn't a constraint in the question (project a triangle on a sphere and you'lll see what I mean). @Flick: Wonderful job, unfortunately other posters have already used all the [missing first vowel]x*.* I would use to describe it (xcellent, xceeding xpectations and so on :-))
Nov 11th, 2011 at 21:24 GMT
I don't suppose you'd consider accepting "sixty degree" and the like as a type of angle?
Nov 13th, 2011 at 12:43 GMT
@marpocky: NO ! (but thanx for all of your comments on the series)

@stefanlaz: the last cases of smallpox in the world occurred in an outbreak in Birmingham, UK in 1978 so it no longer common (thank goodness)

Good quiz. Should add Oxfordshire to list of English counties
Dec 13th, 2011 at 16:21 GMT
shapiroadam: it is now added thanx
Dec 15th, 2011 at 05:45 GMT
I actually found this one much harder than the other blitzes - not because of the letter (though that was probably part of it), but because they didn't necessarily start with "x." Knowing it could be anywhere in the word made it harder for things to click for me. Long story short, great quiz! Fun and challenging :D
Mar 13th, 2012 at 23:59 GMT
I am a mathematician and I think exterior angle should count. Thanks.
Mar 14th, 2012 at 17:33 GMT
@pdevlin: sure thing dded
Jun 6th, 2012 at 08:07 GMT
Number between 1-10 ... None start with X! Look up. Oh, right ... faceplant.
Jul 1st, 2012 at 14:24 GMT
It probably wouldn't be too difficult to do an all-beginning-with-X quiz. You could include "X-Files," "Xanthippe" (Socrates' wife), "Xebec" (a Medeteranian sailing ship), "Xenophobia," "Xanth" (Piers Anthony's fantasy world) and the list goes on.
Aug 28th, 2012 at 13:08 GMT
Probably should pay more attention. I tried Xerxes for Macedonian king face meet palm.

Imagine my surprise when I typed in 'xman' and somehow got the right answer in the X-men category. 5 globes!

So, it turns out anthrax and small pox are not common childhood diseases.
Apr 18th, 2013 at 15:21 GMT
@Hamlet... you're right. It wouldn't be hard to make the quiz. Just hard to get more than 6% right. ;)
Apr 18th, 2013 at 15:26 GMT
Sure, Lex Luthor is the obvious answer, but why isn't Mr. Mxyzptlk an option?
Apr 18th, 2013 at 15:28 GMT
Oops. Never mind. I guess Mxyzptlk is just hard to spell.
Apr 18th, 2013 at 15:28 GMT
I just paid my (Monopoly square) while singing (Beatles song) 5 days ago and I still missed both!

Damn - thought for sure Xerox would be in the Fortune 100.

Could "Your Excellency" or "His Excellency" count for a pope name?
Apr 18th, 2013 at 15:53 GMT
Am I the only one who typed out "Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey" for the Beatles song?
Apr 18th, 2013 at 16:06 GMT
For finger of the hand/bones in the body, you should probably accept phalanx.
Apr 18th, 2013 at 16:07 GMT
@Flick: I always enjoy these, and this was no exception...another great quiz. For the AKC breed, Xoloitzcuintli needs to be added. It was accepted as an AKC recognized breed in 2011 (non-sporting group). It is commonly referred to as Xolo (which would be helpful as an alternate because the full name is so hard to spell). Another name for it is the Mexican Hairless, which would also fit with the x. Here's a look at it: http://www.akc.org/breeds/xoloitzcuintli/index.cfm

I'm glad I did the states of Germany quiz. It came in handy... in another Sporcle quiz.
Apr 18th, 2013 at 16:16 GMT
This is another awesome quiz by
, but for those who like their words to
with X: http://www.sporcle.com/games/caramba/xblitzfun
Apr 18th, 2013 at 16:24 GMT
That was a totally shameless plug… but for those who prefer their Xs in a pictorial quiz: http://www.sporcle.com/games/BombaySapphire/hint-alphabetical-order-down-the-columns
Apr 18th, 2013 at 16:29 GMT
@caramba and bombaysapphire: Those were totally shameless plugs... but eventually I'll come up with some other type of X quiz and come back and refer to it.
Apr 18th, 2013 at 16:55 GMT
I have nothing productive to add to the discussion...but I just need to say how much I love these quizzes!
