If you are going to give a clue as to what "rock"tourists will no longer be able to climb, you need to at least accept Ayers since it is known as Ayers Rock or Uluru.

I guess Quizmaster is taking Christmas off, leaving "Jeff Bezos" as his own company for a few days. I might have guessed it if the title of the quiz had been "Quizmaster"...

I find it hard to guess "state sponsored doping". I think if they say "drugs" and "cheating" then that should be enough.

I too gotta say that "drugs" seems like it should be enough. But when it wasn't, I found it interesting to go through the the entire laundry list of Russian misdeeds that the Olympic Committee *didn't* censure!

Eclipse worked for me - I was lucky to be near the pathway and it was a short dive to a fantastic sight. Waiting for 2024 when it will go right over us.

"What rare event did millions of Americans witness on August 21?" I couldn't think past the idea that Pres Trump said something that day that wasn't totally stupid or offensive (Not that I can think what that might have been)

Technically it was just Iraqi Kurdistan that voted for independence, as the region extends beyond Iraq. "Kurdistan" would be a fine acceptable answer for it though.

Although it is known as the "Kurdistan Region" by Iraq, I suppose. "Southern Kurdistan" is also good.

I thought the USA wasn't allowed to leave the Paris Agreement and that Donald Trump just said he was going to. Or does he claim that he has left and the Paris Agreement disputes it?
