You could also answer Ben & Jerry's with London and Rotterdam - I loved hearing their little-guy-beats-the-big-guys story at their ice cream factory in rural Vermont, but felt bummed when I heard they'd sold out to Unilevers, which sort of spoiled the story. Mind you, the "US State" prompt points us in one direction!

Good quiz, just wanted to let you know there is also a yin yang on the mongolian flag.

Doesn't the yin-yang symbol need to have the 2 dots inside the halves to actually be a yin yang? If it does, South Korea does not have them. I also thought it had to be in the same direction (split vertically rather than horizontally), and had to be black & white. The colour part I can see not mattering a lot, but I did think it had to meet specific criteria to actually be a yin-yang. I don't think the flag really meets any.

I looked it up, and it seems that colour and orientation don't matter, but every yin-yang symbol does have the dots. "One could not exist without the other, for each contains the essence of the other" It's the part about containing the other, which is where the opposite colour dots are important.

It doesn't really matter, because South Korea's flag is explicitly designed to reflect the duality of yin and yang, as well as some other concepts (elements, cardinal points...).

Maybe I'm wrong, but doesn't the Mongolia flag have a yin-yang symbol on it as well?

When visiting the San Diego Zoo one year my father, not known for making the most sagely observations, asked aloud, "birds aren't animals, are they? Aren't they... poultry?"

Also curious to me: how overseas especially around the Middle East chicken gets classified as something other than "meat." If you order something they might ask you if you want the meat or the chicken. By meat they mean usually beef or lamb. I gave up trying to explain that chicken is also meat.

That can happen here (the US), too, as there are all these degrees of "vegetarianism". For instance: "Oh, I don't eat meat anymore." "Um, but you're eating chicken right now." "Oh, well yeah, I still eat poultry, just not, ya know, *meat*." :-O

As samiamco said, there are definitely differing degrees of abstaining from meat. When I was growing up (in Maryland, a heavily Catholic state) the school cafeterias would serve fish sandwiches every Friday during Lent. I'm not sure how poultry, another type of "non-red" meat, would be classified.

@Freestatebear Fish is actually allowed on Fridays. In the Middle Ages the Catholic church even went as far as declaring beavers, badgers, and otters as fish so people could eat meat without actually breaking any rules.

I chose the right answer, but it is not true that Bayern Munich dominated the Bundesliga since its inception in 1963. First, they were not promoted to that league until 1965, second, they shared the spoils with several other teams in the 1970s and went almost under in the early 1980s, when they were rescued by the managerial talent of Uli Hoenness. Perhaps it can be said that they have dominated the Bundesliga since the mid-1980s.

Also need to clarify you mean the GERMAN Bundesliga - the latter has also been the name of the TOP competition in AUSTRIA since 1974. Alternately, accept Rapid Vienna as an answer.

What Wiktionary doesn't say is that it's an American word that is not used elsewhere in the English-speaking world (hardly ever anyway).
