Very nice quiz. I must admit that the clue "Disney/Pixar Animated Movies" was a bit misleading to me. I was trying to think of only Pixar movies. How about "Disney or Pixar Animated Movies" instead?
Feb 16th, 2011 at 01:15 GMT
The 49ers should at least be a bonus answer since that is how it is usually written. And wouldn't Henry be another Shakespeare title character?
Feb 16th, 2011 at 01:41 GMT
: The instructions say to ignore numbers, and there is more than one "Henry" title character, so I decided that they needed their numeral to differentiate them. I also decided that Titus also needed "Andronicus". Let me know if you think any of these points are too arbitrary - I've made lots of changes based on feedback before.

I just learned that Europe has an absurd number of 6-letter capitals.
Feb 17th, 2011 at 02:05 GMT
I think you need to include bonus answers, at least, to explain the missing 49ers, Henry and Titus. That way those of us who guess them can at least understand why they don't count, rather than thinking you've missed something, know what I mean? Nice quiz, otherwise, though I'm not a fan of Crayola as a category, generally. :)
Feb 17th, 2011 at 17:47 GMT
@gnatural Well, you can blame me. I made Crayola colors a category in a bunch of my published quizzes, so now it has kinda become a standard thing.
Feb 17th, 2011 at 18:26 GMT
: Added some explanations for the ones I omitted, as bonus answers.
: Thanks for falling on the sword for me!

Well at least I could get one Oscar winner from today!
Feb 28th, 2011 at 04:33 GMT
I tried apple expecting to maybe, by sheer chance, get a color.. however i was surprised (at the time, not after i thought about it) to see it as a website.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 04:35 GMT
I have to ask. Didn't Colin Firth win in the 2010's, not the 2000's? And Mad-Eye Moody never really was a DADA teacher, was he? Feel free to neg-rep me to oblivion if I'm wrong about both.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 04:43 GMT
I couldn't think of the second one for Disney movies...now I feel like, well, the answer.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 04:53 GMT
now that I count again, it appears "Democratic Republic of the Congo" does indeed have more than 5 letters.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 05:02 GMT
Like a true Sporcle geography addict: I get all the European capitals and countries of Africa, but I miss Black, White, and Brown. And Three. Go me.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 05:19 GMT
, I didn't even notice the bottom
categories, and I
that makes me.

Quick work updating to include Colin Firth, well done. @JimH it says 2000's which doesn't necessarily refer to the decade, but 2000's as a century. It would probably be better if they rephrased it as '21st Century Best actor/actresses' to avoid confusion.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 05:53 GMT
Misread that as Oscar winners of 2000 and only got Crowe. In retrospect, it would've been an amazing coincidence that all acting winners in 2000 had 5-letter names (or indeed a freak occurrence that there'd be more than 4 winners in a given year!).
Feb 28th, 2011 at 06:03 GMT
I guess I interpreted 2000's as meaning the decade of 2000-2009 ... like the 1980's, 1990's, 2000's, 2010's, etc. Should've tried Firth though. Anyway, really fun quiz! (Embarrassed by some of my misses, though ... haha.)
Feb 28th, 2011 at 06:42 GMT
"21st century" means 2001-2100, which eliminates Crowe (he got the award in '01, but the performance was in '00). "2000s" usually means 2000-2009, which eliminates Firth. It can also mean 2000-2099, but that's not really the first definition that comes to mind. The most accurate title would be "2000-present".
Feb 28th, 2011 at 10:35 GMT
You forgot "Titus".
Feb 28th, 2011 at 10:38 GMT
I kinda think the description is fine how it is. '2000s' means the same thing to me as '1900s'. Both Crowe and Firth won for the 2000s as both Alec Guiness and Roberto Benigni won for the 1900s. The '00s, which I still think we should call 'the aughties', would be that thing we just went through.

@dru: Well, everything has a silver

People still go to about.com?
Feb 28th, 2011 at 13:53 GMT
I agree that Titus should be included as should Shrew as in The Taming of the Shrew!?!?!?
Feb 28th, 2011 at 14:30 GMT
For crayolas - no beige, olive or mauve?
Feb 28th, 2011 at 14:51 GMT
: When did you buy your Crayolas - 1968? (That's when I got my mine.) I was surprised by that, too, as well as ocher, umber, and flesh. Lots of colours have been replaced by new "more exciting" colours such as Laser Lemon, Jazzberry Jam and Razzmatazz.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 16:02 GMT
Of all of them I'm most gutted I missed Snape.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 16:53 GMT
What about Ponyo? It is a five letter Disney animated movie, no?
Feb 28th, 2011 at 16:56 GMT
You might think the names of those Crayola colors are silly. But go to a Benjamin Moore or a Home Depot and look at the names of all of the shades. My daughter's room is painted Wishes. What's the color of a wish?
Feb 28th, 2011 at 17:13 GMT
When all else fails while guessing colors---think "food."

Anybody else getting kinda annoyed that Harry Potter has to pop up everywhere?

Firth isn't in the 2000's for Oscar winners. He was the first of the '10s.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 18:51 GMT
It would be awesome if a quiz could reference the 2000s or 2010s or 1990s or whatever without some commenters feeling the need to get into a "when did the century/decade/millenium really start" debate. Seriously, people, we've all been made aware of this "issue" at some point in the last 11 years, and it just makes you look like a wannabe know-it-all.

isn't congo an african country?
Feb 28th, 2011 at 19:49 GMT
Got 5 bonuses...49ers, plane, wheel, Titus Andronicus and Henry (IV, V, VI, VIII)
Feb 28th, 2011 at 20:36 GMT
well, ponyo isn't a disney movie. it was made by miyasaki and released later by disney. not the same. as far as the countries go, i don't see why the congo shouldn't be included. you shouldn't forget that all the of the countries listed have much longer official names, even if they are known colloquially as 5 letter names.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 20:39 GMT
@floydpink...except that debate is not really going on here. It's just a misunderstanding about whether 2000's as used in this quiz refers to a decade or a century. Nobody's arguing about when the century started in this thread.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 20:57 GMT
Nice quiz...I tried 'Wives' as in Merry Wives of Windsor...oh, well. Also, not to split hairs, but Moody while teaching defense against the dark arts was actually Barty Crouch Jr. using polyjuice potion.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 21:07 GMT
it's nice that firth was added, but now the oscar winners are out of order alphabetically
Feb 28th, 2011 at 22:56 GMT
"Do not count spaces, numbers or punctuation." Then why does "Henry" not count? Obviously, 49ers would count if we included numbers. I think that you ought to make clear whether or not Roman numerals are included under "numbers".
Feb 28th, 2011 at 23:45 GMT
^ and why DO the numbers 1-100 count? :) Really liked this. But what's 'For Group Names, ignore "The"' about?
