Isn't hydrophobia just the fear of water?
reply

Oct 17, 2014

Yes, and rabies doesn't actually cause fear of water. They thought it did because of the behavior of animals that had been affected and didn't want to drink. This is because the disease affects the throat muscles and they can't or have a hard time swallowing... thus the foaming at the mouth and acting strangely when given water. The name hydrophobia was given to rabies a long time ago when this wasn't understood.

I tried "rheumatism" before I came up with "arthritis". I still think it should be a valid answer, since arthritis is just one kind of rheumatism and your description fits all kinds. (I also tried "hydrophobia" before I came up with "rabies", but I won't argue that one since in this case your description was of the specific disease, not the generic symptom.)

Wait if I'm not wrong smallpox is completely eradicated. Like apart from the vials of it or the people who died with it in Antarctica. You can yell at anti-vaxxers sure but vaccinating against smallpox doesn't really matter because it's not around anymore.

I think maybe Firelord was getting smallpox confused with polio. The former hasn't existed outside of laboratories and freezers since the late 70s. The latter we've come extremely close to eradicating completely, but efforts have been hampered somewhat in recent years by ignorance, distrust of vaccines and the West in general, and by various conflicts particularly in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Great quiz, just one correction: Asperger's is not a "less severe version of autism". It is a disability on the autism spectrum, meaning it is one of many forms of autism. And whether or not it is less severe than other forms of autism depends very much on which form we're comparing it to. Asperger's is extremely less severe than, say, very severe autism in which a person can't communicate effectively and is wheelchair bound, but it is less severe than a form of autism in which a person has complete control over their emotions and can communicate very effectively. If I were Quizmaster I'd change the phrasing a little. Maybe something like: "A common mild form of autism" or "A condition on the autism spectrum that affects emotional control".

Since it's a spectrum, your clue is akin to saying something like a less severe form of radio frequencies or light or anything else in a spectrum. A good clue might refer to Sheldon on but since he's said to be a near perfect portrayal of Asperger's syndrome... Or so I've been told!

Agree. Things have changed and Asperger's is now one of the Autism Spectrum Disorders. The disorder is on the high end of the spectrum and is usually less severe, but it can be classified as severe or mild. (One of our granddaughters is a high-functioning autistic whose symptoms are considered less severe, but she would not have been diagnosed with Asperger's.) I knew what you meant, but people should know about the changes.

There are many tick diseases that are similar but not caused by the the same bacteria. Some may be more prevalent in certain regions than others. Lyme often has a characteristic circular or "bulls-eye" rash. The RMSF rash causes spots on the body, thus the name. I had a maculopapular rash on my wrists and ankles when I had erlichiosis. Treatments are not the same since each bacteria responds better to certain antibiotics than others.

Gout can actually strike in a lot of places, not just the big toe (although that is the most common location). The high levels of uric acid cause it to crystallize around joints, tendons, or nearby tissues. The reason people get it in their big toe is because it's a form of arthritis and our toes take a lot of abuse. It can also show up in ankles, knees, the middle of the foot (where I've gotten it), or other locations. So could you rephrase the description as something more like "Disease of kings, caused by high uric acid, causes painful swelling, often in the big toe?"
