Originally the time limit was 6:00 to keep the theme of six minutes running but tested it on somebody and they said it required a minute or so. If you think I should raise or lower the time limit please comment. Any other comments are welcome too. Oh and also please read the Game notes for the *'s and ^'s it will explain what they mean. Hope you enjoy the quiz!

Remarkably nice quiz. I'd suggest taking "radiation" for "radioactive" (unless you already do and I just mistyped it). In terms of time, I only missed six, and I spent a minute or two in the middle helping my wife load the car, so *I* think the time limit is pretty good.

Thank-you Tahnan. More alternate answers are now accepted. I was unsure of time so thanks for reassuring my doubts.
Apr 29th, 2011 at 20:33 GMT
Great quiz! The time seems seemed fine to me

I typed in middle east for the US regions.

For thermal pollution, maybe accept global warming? Also, consider accepting alternate spellings for the wives. The spelling for the Catherines isn't really consistent in the historical records, so maybe accept Catherine, Katherine or Kathryn for all of them (plus last name of course).

@debbiedoesnothin: Thermal Pollution is the harm to lakes and rivers resulting from the release of excessive waste heat into them. Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of Earth's near- surface air and oceans. Also, alternate spellings are now accepted. The six regions given are the definate six regions of the US.

@cnam: Why? A Sporcle challenge is meant to be fun and erm... challenging.

Awesome quiz WackyZacky! I was hoping to see Wacky as a bonus answer, but that's okay. But, could you possibly accept mad for anger?
May 1st, 2011 at 06:10 GMT
Maybe accept ramp for inclined plane, that's how I've always known it
May 1st, 2011 at 17:48 GMT
Most Americans refer the the Mid-Atlantic and New England as one region - Northeast. Perhaps think about altering this answer in some way.

"Plays: 666" :)

Nuclear should be acceptable for radioactive.
May 2nd, 2011 at 03:38 GMT
how about "holland" for netherlands?
May 4th, 2011 at 20:31 GMT
EVERY single quiz I've taken here always takes United Kingdom and never accepts it's separate parts. My only "complaint" (seems too harsh a word) here is that when I tried UK and it wasn't accepted, I assumed that meant all of it's parts weren't answers.

As a lifelong resident of Washington State, I am offended by this quiz (not really). Where is the Pacific Northwest on this quiz?
May 5th, 2011 at 12:12 GMT
@trueblue13 - if that were accepted, it would automatically fill in 3 of those 6 answers - in most cases its probably reasonable to accept, but in this case it would indicate you knew more about rugby than you actually did!
May 5th, 2011 at 19:21 GMT
I agree that UK shouldn't mean you get all three of those right. In fact, any kind of note indicating that the UK should be thought of as it's separate parts would probably be too much of a giveaway as well. I retract my previous comment. I didn't stand a chance with this quiz anyway.
May 6th, 2011 at 16:40 GMT
@TrueBlue - that's "as its separate..." not it's. It's=it is. @cnotts - that's "...most cases it's probably..." as in it is. OK, off you go, vote down the pedant. I can't help it.
May 6th, 2011 at 22:26 GMT
Simple typo. I don't need a grammar lesson.
May 7th, 2011 at 04:39 GMT
Scotland, Wales and England are not countries, even though that's what the category says. The UK is the country and they are just it's parts.
May 10th, 2011 at 10:48 GMT
@elh530 - sorry, more grammar lessons - "...just its parts..." not it's. The lesson is just above, unless it's been voted out of sight.

6 globes from me.. oh wait maybe not.. i'll have to stick to 5!
