Yeah, but either way it's still 2 t's, and it's more fun being complicated. Also, there are only 3 t's in antidisestablishmentarianism, despite it being that big of a word. I learned this trick from 'Mississippi is a long word. How do you spell it?'

I was concerned that the maker of this quiz was looking for antivenom for poison remedy. I was happy to be proven wrong, but it did accept antivenon for the actual answer. An anitvenom is for venoms and not for poisons.

I always thought the word was "antivenin" so I googled it. It seems that when I was in school the word was antivenin, but in 1981 the WHO decided it made more sense to use the more popular English form of the word and officially changed it to "antivenom" in their publications. Apparently that changed it for all the English-speaking world. I love how our language continually adapts to popular usage, but it sometimes make it hard for us oldsters to keep up.

Antivenom is for poisonous venoms in snakes and spiders. Not all poisonous things even have antidotes, so these animals probably make up a large percentage of poisonous substances with antidotes.

Actually, the definition of "antisocial" is wrong on this quiz. You're confusing the word with "asocial" which is something completely different. An asocial person is just shy and avoidant of society, and an antisocial person is someone who's hostile and goes against the laws and customs of society. I think you should change that.

I had it your way originally, but changed it because people complained. In common parlance, antisocial often just means "shy".

In our language ( and maybe others aswell, wont be he first time for english to be the odd one out) asocial means absolute scum, people that you dont want to have as neighbours (as opposed to shy people, which would be lovely, some peace and quiet...). Loud music at ungodly hours swearing and fighting on a regualr basis so that the whole neighbourhodd can enjoy horrible to their kids. Basicly no manners in any way or form. I dont believe we have the word antisocial, so there can be no mix up with that.

I guess the differences in meaning comes from how you look at social/socially acceptable behaviour. You can behave in a way that is totally unacceptable (our asocial which in english apparently is antisocial) and you can Not behave in the way that is generally accepted as normal (as in being outgoing and greeting and chatting with everyone you meet)

If quinine is the only example, might I make the suggestion you also accept "antipyretic"? After quinine proved effective against malarial fever, it was used to reduce fevers of all kinds (with varying effectiveness), which is what an antipyretic does: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antipyretic#Medications Great quiz!

That wouldn't make sense. Antibodies are not antigens -- antibodies bind to antigens.
