Big Ben refers to the main bell in the tower, not the tower itself. The tower is the "Elizabeth Tower".

That may be true, but it's also the de facto name of the entire monument.

I grew up with the Beach Boys in the '60s, but I didn't connect them to the album. Even after I googled it I remembered some of the songs but the album name still didn't ring a bell. I love the easy-going Sloop John B.

Bilbo did not steal the ring. He found it and did not give it back, even when Gollum accused him of having it. And it wasn't even Gollum's because he killed his friend/brother? and stole it from him. AND there is evidence that the ring deliberately lost itself in order to be found by Bilbo because it "wanted" to get out of the cave. There, I feel much better.

Level 81
Jul 23, 2018
So, if I found your wallet on the street, and then you asked me if I had it and I said no and kept it, that wouldn't qualify as stealing? And Gollum had the ring for centuries, I think that's long enough to qualify for ownership, regardless of how he originally obtained it.
+6
Level 81
Jul 23, 2018
I guess the clue could have been, "He acquired by morally questionable means the ring that Gollum was holding onto for Deagol (dead), who holding onto it for Isildur (dead), who was holding onto it for Sauron (disembodied and therefore not big on jewelry)"

The Big Bang should be called 'theory of the beginning of the universe'. As of yet, there is no proof that it actually happened.
+2
Level 63
Sep 8, 2016
I'd say the Big Bang is as much proven as possible for something so complicated to prove. There are models, signs and hypothesis that explain it. Can't say that about some things that are not called a theory.

It was a"religious nutjob", as you might say, who first proposed the big bang theory, which triggered more than a few secularist scientists at the time. It's interesting how things come around.

I would suggest that Big Brother would be better characterised as the "Dictator in 1984". He cannot really be considered antagonist in the literary sense of the word (the principal opponent of the hero) because he is not an active participant of the story (and it is highly disputable if he has a physical existence at all). Thus, he is more of a symbol. The real antagonist without doubt, is O'Brien (I actual spent some time wondering if O'Brien had a first name starting with B).
+1
Level 83
Sep 16, 2014
Yes, I kept trying to think of a character name. Well said.
+2
Level 81
Jul 23, 2018
I disagree. In 1984, the true "opponent," the thing that the main character struggles against, isn't any one person; it's the system itself. Big Brother, as you point out, probably isn't a person at all; he IS the system, at least symbolically. Therefore I think he's a better fit as the antagonist than O'Brien (who wouldn't be alliterative even if his first name started with B because his last name starts with O).

I think just like me, people were thinking of pet sounds (or names for them) that started with a b. the question would ve been better if it had the word band in it. It wouldnt give anything away, but people who wouldnt have known would waste time trying answer that have nothing to do with the appatent question

I could not for the life of me get Bill Bixby out of my head for Hulk. Then, as I read "Won't you come home" I thought to myself, "Won't you be my neighbor?" and I'm like, how in the hell is Mr. Rogers an alliterative B?

I don't understand. Big Ben is the name of the bell, not a palace.
+1
Level 62
Jul 18, 2019
You don't understand?

That Big Ben is the name of the bell [and it isn't in a palace it is in a tower that is named the Elizabeth Tower (named so on the Queen's 60th year on the throne)(It was originally St Stephen's Tower) The tower is part of the Houses of Parliament. A small part of what was once a palace was built around, in another corner of the site, when it became the home of Parliament over the years but the whole is not a palace]?

Or why nobody else seems to understand this information?

U. S. generation born 1946-1964" is the "Baby Boomers" generation, (not the Baby Boom) generation. And why is it limited to the US in any event? I thought many countries had a significant increase in births during that time.
+1
Level 67
Dec 10, 2018
I agree, answer should definitely be boomers. Especially since the generation is asked and not the event/term. And I think indeed it wasnt just a us thing. I remember learning it in biology with a diagram where a crosssection of the populatiin was shown. (Age and male or female. Hmm writing that I wonder how biology books are now. Cause aparently you can be many things inbetween nowadays. Even forms give the option "other" now)

just a quick question, why is Boston famous for Baked Beans ?
+1
Level 79
Sep 24, 2018
They make theirs with only molasses or maple syrup and salt pork while tomato sauce is also added in other parts of the country. It's a different recipe, just as there is a difference between New England/Boston Clam Chowder and Manhattan Clam Chowder. (When I was in Boston I ordered Boston Clam Chowder, Boston Baked Beans, Boston Brown Bread, and Boston Cream Pie. They were all pretty good.)

So it isnt big batman?? ;) you d allmost expect it since all the answers before it start with big.

and i dont think simply bilbo should be accepted. You either know the answer to the question or you dont. Otherwise just bruce for instance should be accepted aswell (which makes equally less sense)
