You know how there are certain people that you can NEVER remember, no matter how many quizzes you take? Mine are Steve Buscemi and John Steinbeck. Crap.

I can believe you about John Steinbeck, but you clearly have learned Steve Buscemi's name, or you would have said "that guy from Boardwalk Empire and Ghost World" instead. :P

maybe he just quickly opened up IMDb and typed in Con Air to find out what his name was.

I've seen Steve Buscemi in a bunch of stuff, but I never knew he was in Boardwalk Empire or Ghost World. Those are some pretty obscure movies to name. :D

Read Steinbeck! I cannot believe you could forget The Grapes Of Wrath or who wrote it if you sat down and read it--they are not long books. And so relevant to live in the post Bush/Cheney world.

I could only come up with "John S—" in the heat of the moment, but I absolutely loved Grapes of Wrath. I am ashamed.

Anyone else remembering their GCSE English when you hear Steinbeck? Good old Of Mice and Men

We didn't do it for gcse but in the front covers of every copy people had written "***** dies" (unlike them I'm not one for spoilers)

can anyone expain the Haiti one to me please?

level 58
Feb 2, 2019
It is the same analogy as what we call north America. North America is the USA and Canada. The combination of Haiti and the Dominican Republic are called Hispaniola.
+1
level 80
Feb 2, 2019
No, that's not right at all. The analogy is simply country : island. Haiti is on the island of Hispaniola, Brunei is on Borneo.

For some reason the clavicle one seems odd. Not wrong, but for some reason I would've expected the clue to be Clavicle : Collar Bone :: Patella : _____.

I thought the same thing. That would be a more direct analogy. Took me a second.

Right! I couldn't figure out the relation between Clavicle and Patella???

Yeah same, am sure that must be a mix up.

I always enjoyed these analogy quizzes since they really test your mental ability to relate things. I've been pronouncing badminton wrong my whole life. I never knew there was another in the middle of it. Learn something new everyday.

I had never heard zucchini called "courgette" ("a courgette"?) until Jet Punk. I think it is mostly an European term for the vegetable.

Both are European, French/Italian.

Clavicle is to Patella as Collar Bone is to Kneecap Should be Clavicle is to Collar Bone as Patella is to Kneecap.

The analogy is as intended. It's meant to exercise your mind in a different way.

It might be fun to do an entire analogy quiz that way.

Hmm. I got the answer without difficulty, but it's the only one that works like that, and I think it's fair to say it doesn't really follow the logic of how the question is phrased ("a is to b as x is to y").

the Sherlock Holmes / Ravi Shankar one is a bit weird - a fictional detective who happens to play violin and a real living musician
+1

... oh, apparently Ravi is dead now. Still a weird analogy though

Quite ridiculous to equate Holmes' ability to play the violin with Shankar who was a genius on the Sitar. Why pick Holmes when there are so many non-fictional great violinists that you could have chosen?

Please accept 'citar' for the Ravi Shankar clue, please.

Please accept "knee" for kneecap

Apr 16, 2017
Not specific enough. That's like asking "please accept shoulder" for collarbone

Apr 14, 2017
How can you not accept "knee" for kneecap??
+1
level 59
Apr 14, 2017
Because the kneecap/patella is part of the knee, not the whole thing.

I though zucchini is what Americans called cucumber, not courgette? Or do they use the same word for both?

Yup, a cucumber is just a cucumber here.
