"aglet" should be acceptable too.
Oct 25th, 2009 at 01:07 GMT
the colour of a polar bears fur is colourless not clear, clear means it let lights through it
Oct 25th, 2009 at 01:16 GMT
I am considering adding hints for each question, however I feel it might make the quiz too easy. I understand a few of the questions are pretty tough, but I think if I add hints I'd have to do it for every question and that might make the medium questions too easy.. What do you guys think?
Oct 25th, 2009 at 01:50 GMT
I added the hints..Let me know if you guys think I should leave them or if they should go. I tried to make them not too obvious

Georgia is not considered part of Europe for Sporcle purposes.

China has quite a few people who can read some English, but in terms of actual English speakers, is well below the US, India, Nigeria, UK, Philippines, Canada, and Australia.
Oct 25th, 2009 at 07:25 GMT
Fun combo of questions. I like the hints - gave me 2-3 answers I might not have gotten, but they also added to the flavor of the quiz. Who knew an avocado was a berry?
Oct 25th, 2009 at 08:41 GMT
in cocktail tom cruise and elisabeth shue name the end of the shoelace a flugelbinder - it would be good to have that as a possible answer (that was all i could remember)
Oct 25th, 2009 at 09:44 GMT
You should accept no color
Oct 25th, 2009 at 13:16 GMT
The bible never specifies the species of animal that Jonah spent 3 days in. It just says "big fish".
Oct 25th, 2009 at 15:32 GMT
The color white, scientifically speaking, means the absence of all color because no rays of light are being reflected from a white surface. Because no color is being reflected this makes a white surface colorless, make it acceptable.
Oct 25th, 2009 at 15:42 GMT
Jesus called it a whale - KJV Mat 12:40 "For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."
Oct 25th, 2009 at 15:56 GMT
Should accept Sam Clemens
Oct 25th, 2009 at 16:01 GMT
Im pretty sure white reflects all colours, not none, which is why we can see it. But even if Im mistaken there, for all intents and purposes white is still a colour. If it was clear we'd know it too because polar bears have black skin. You can try to be clever all you want, but look at the fur...its blatantly white. @FoxyRhino: If thats true, about the big fish, whale should definitely be disallowed as theyre mammals. A whale shark, maybe.

As for the polar bear's hair: http://www.loc.gov/rr/scitech/mysteries/polarbear.html

That football club is called "Rangers" or "Rangers Football Club". Glasgow is not part of their name. Colloquially they are called glasgow rangers, generally to disambiguate if they might otherwise be confused with, say, Queen's Park Rangers or some other team.
Oct 25th, 2009 at 19:52 GMT
dolphins and whales can't really jump either
Oct 25th, 2009 at 21:22 GMT
Dolphins can't jump?!
Spent the last two minutes panicking trying to remember Mark Twain's real name. In the end I thought of it with about ten seconds left (complete with middle name FFS) and I still spelled it wrong :( Would love to see loads more trivia ones like this, might make one myself at some point.

china is not 1st it the usa. china has 10 million usa has 251 million
Oct 25th, 2009 at 22:44 GMT
@cls121389: I think you mean the guys who mad the King James translation called it a whale. Unless you were actually there to hear Jesus say that in which case you probably have supernatural powers and should spend your time fighting evil and not on sporcle.
Oct 25th, 2009 at 23:48 GMT
Big Fish doesn't exclude whale as to my knowledge the bible was written long before mankind made that distinction :P You could put whale (Big Fish) if you wanted. In terms of jumping - Whales and Dolphins exit the water, which is often referred to as jumping, though a scientific definition of jumping might disagree. You could be land mammal to make it more clear. Overall very nice quiz. I made a compilation of random knowledge questions (following the alphabet though) a while ago and you and I both used the exact same dueling question lol - probably the same source.
Oct 26th, 2009 at 00:07 GMT
Not to mention earthquakes every time Terrence Cody jumps.
Oct 26th, 2009 at 15:36 GMT
You might want to specify that for the first one you want the smallest positive number. The English speakers question is weird -- what constitutes "use" of a language? I don't think there's a reliable source for that statistic, so perhaps you should replace that question. "Aiglet" should be acceptable for aglet. Fun quiz, and I finally got to put my knowledge of the tittle to good use!
Oct 26th, 2009 at 17:35 GMT
The kids show Phineas and Ferb did a whole show on the word Aglet.
Oct 26th, 2009 at 21:43 GMT
The hints ruined it for me. I would have enjoyed the quiz more without them.
Oct 27th, 2009 at 15:18 GMT
You're telling me a walrus can jump?
Oct 27th, 2009 at 22:53 GMT
If you taunt it with a bukkit XD >_>
Oct 29th, 2009 at 17:32 GMT
a polar bears fur isn't white and it is clear.
Oct 30th, 2009 at 01:37 GMT
The dueling question belongs in one of those books filled with random facts.
Jun 10th, 2010 at 12:59 GMT
You should accept volcanic or volcanic rock too, not just pumice
Jul 6th, 2010 at 11:58 GMT
it is not clear, it can be blue and clear just means it is blue and transparent, it is colourless
Dec 17th, 2010 at 00:44 GMT
should accept nothing for clear and colourness
