Although I would have laughed if there was a follow-up question to number 2 asking who's _not_ going to pay for it. :)

I'm pissed off that the answer that displays for the wallaby question is kangaroo instead of wallaroo.

Typing Romania gives Rome for this quiz, is this intentional?

Yeah the Roma type-in for Rome gives you Rome before you have a chance to complete Romania. Which makes this (I think) the first quiz to have both Roma and Romania as answers?

There are a couple of times you have to type "wall". At least with China and the computer question it feels superfluous.

It seems like the only times you need to type "wall" is if it is part of a one-word answer. I don't know how the mechanism on the site works, but I would bet that it only ignores "wall" if it is a word on its own in the answer.

If the intended answer is "fish", maybe ask "What type of creature is a walleye?" As the question is currently worded, "squint" is a perfectly valid answer; in fact this is the definition #1 in my (BrE) dictionary, and the fish is #4.

For walleye I tried pike and wondered why it didn't work. Then I went more general and got it.

For walleye I tried all sorts of combinations of outlet and socket (with electrical wall and power). (Cause i allways forget the exact term). Really when reading the clue that's all ibut could thinkbe ofyou, fits really well imo :)

and you could also have a waldorf question about the muppets! Much more interesting than a hotel, or salad. Like who joins statler with grumbling about the muppets from their theatherbalcony.

I got so stuck on locations that I read "Where" instead of "What" on the Waldorf Astoria. Kept trying to think of a synonym for everywhere that included wall.... Sigh.

Could you allow just "fire" instead of "firewall", say? I know it isn't one, but it has the feeling of a "words containing..." quiz, where the answers are allowed in this way.
