    You know, in Paris they don't call it a Quarter Pounder with Cheese. They got the metric system over there, they don't know what the hell a quarter pound is. They call it a Royale with Cheese. A Big Mac's still a Big Mac, they just call it "Le Big Mac."
  2. 20 Ugly Cars from the '90s

    I have to protest the main page title of "Ugly cars". Really, some of those cars are quite nice and others are simply boring. But few of them are outright ugly.
  3. The Great Elimination Mystery!

    With a name like Cad Avver, he probably should have seen this coming
  4. Planets, Lakes, and Princesses

    That moment when, after ten minutes of searching for the princess you missed, certain that you never could have missed a planet or lake, you finally realize you missed...Earth.

    I love it when you hide patterns in your quizzes. It is especially cool when I discover it while taking the quiz.
  6. 20 Ugly Cars from the '90s

    The original title was 'Slideshow: 1990s Automobiles'. Understandably, the Sporcle staff wanted to use a more interesting name. I don't mind the change too much, but I don't think that these cars are ugly, either.

    WTF is a big tasty?
  8. 'L' Pictures by Category

    Tough for Brits. Several of the logos relate to products that are not sold in Europe. We would never describe someone cutting a hedge as a landscaper (topiarist, gardener). Ladies fingers are vegetables (okra). Lima beans are called butter beans here.
  9. Geography, Movies or Sports?
    35
    Great format, but you do know there are sports outside the US, right?
  10. 'L' Pictures by Category

    If you're going to have a 'logos' category, then you should have logos from companies that exist in more than country, not just in the USA.
