fun quiz, thank you for your efforts quizmaster. I like that 'potable' isn't dead as word yet.

Jeopardy keeps it alive with its "Potent Potables" category.

Please accept "chao" as an answer as well as "adios".

Uhm, what? Even if you spelled it correctly (ciao), it would still be Italian, while hola is Spanish.

cioa is Italian. Chao is spanish.

'Ciao' = 'hi'/'bye' in Italian; 'chao' = 'bye' in Spanish.

'Hasta luego' ('until later') would be an even better analogy in this instance though, since it means something closer to 'au revoir' ('until the next time we see each other').

Or even 'hasta la vista' which means 'until we see each other again'. It is, in that way, more correct than the 'correct' answer.

The more accurate analogy would be as follows:

Bonjour is to Adieu as Buenos Dias is to Adios.

Agree, except I couldn't figure out why Canton wasn't accepted for the language analogy. Slapped myself silly when I saw the answer.

Why is "Hasta Luego" not acceptable?
+1
Level 50
Jun 21, 2017
Hasta luego means until then, not goodbye.

But adios means farewell, whereas au revoir literally means "until we see each other again". Adieu would be a better French word to correspond with adios, both literally and by connotation.

Tough quiz! Proud of myself for getting the Hong Kong one though.

I had some trouble with spelling some of the answers. Raeggae, Raggae, regge... Posseidon, Posseydon... Managed to get the first one, but after the 2 failed tries for Poseidon I thought it's just the wrong answer. I guess I have to just go with the simplest spelling next time.

I think you've said it before that you love analogies QM; I have to agree with you.

Shouldn't "drinkable" be accepted for water as well?

agree

But that would be analog to "eatable," not to "edible."

How is 'Fat Bottom Girls' analogous to 'Baby Got Back'? I mean, Queen had lots of songs, so what makes this one - and not even the most popular one - different?
