haha.. this is great, just for the comments section. Wonderful idea for a quiz, kind of like my You Might Be an Idiot quiz except not quite so on the nose... the *really* funny thing, though, is that all the comments thus far are from people pointing out errors. As if there was only one. Does that mean that they think every other answer is correct? Actually tomatoes are commonly classified as fruit. and men do think about sex constantly at least on a subconscious level. Finally the popular Western myth concerning virgins in Islamic paradise is actually that the Qu'ran doesn't mention them and it is just a Western invention. That's not true. The Qu'ran *does* specifically mention this aspect of paradise, though it doesn't give the exact number of 72- that part is only mentioned in the hadith which, to the majority of Muslims, are nearly as important as the Qu'ran. However, the number 72 is not in the Qu'ran, so the clue still fits with the theme of the quiz somewhat.

Aside from the tomato thing... everything else on here appears to be (not) accurate. :) I got all of them except bumblebee. I was confused by the wording of the clue but after I saw the answer it made sense. I think it would be more clear if you worded it thusly: "According to science, what animal that flies shouldn't be able to?"

Funnily enough, if you word it like that - as it has been in the meantime - the statement is actually correct: according to science, a bumblebee should indeed not fly. It would be different if it said something like "According to science, a bumblebee does not fly."

For the statement "men do think about sex constantly" to be true you would need a pretty liberal definition of "think". Men don't think about it consciously all the time (or maybe some do, but I'd be surprised if they literally never stopped). Genes do prioritise sex and never change, but they don't think. Subconsciously perhaps, but there would need to be some pretty strong evidence for me to be convinced.

A little Venn diagram might help those who think the tomato question is correct... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Botanical_Fruit_and_Culinary_Vegetables.png
+1
level 64
Sep 14, 2014
But if you look at the diagram, tomatoes are still in the botanical (scientific) fruit section. It's showing the overlap between scientific and culinary use. So it's a question of whether you consider botany or culinary "correct." Because of the dual uses, then, either answer might be correct. Vegetable is correct for cooking (but scientifically a miscategorization) and fruit is correct for science (but a culinary miscategorization). So I guess my vote is to just use another question.
+1
level 74
Apr 1, 2018
No, because both are correct in proper context, and the question claims some people miscategorize it, which is usually a wrong claim, so the question is fine on this quiz

Apr 1, 2018
I think people just like to hear the sound of their own voice. Or the sound of their own fingers typing. They get annoyed when they have to read other people's opinions. So much so, that, if they see a person repeatedly leaving lengthy comments they might take it as a personal insult and feel the need to attack that person as if their words are somehow injurious.

On the other hand some of us do enjoy reading the comments. I do. That's why I stir the pot to make more.

Seriously. Like 5 people said this was an April Fools quiz and, still, 90 people wrote comments about how 2+3*5+6 doesn't equal 31 and how America isn't a country. Perhaps some people don't know what April Fools is, or most people don't even bother to look at the quiz title.

To all people who have never celebrated an April Fool's Day, it is an unofficial holiday in many countries celebrated on the first day of April. On that day people play pranks on others and spread hoaxes, trying to make people believe them. Anyone who falls for the hoax or is the victim of a prank becomes an "April Fool". The answers to the clues given on this quiz are untrue but popular urban legends, untrue political rhetoric, or popular but incorrect "facts". As for the largest country which begins with an A, everyone should know it is Antarcticaustraliamerica. I thought every April Fool knew that.

There is still no universally accepted definition of whats separates a fruit from a vegetable. If we assume that having seeds makes it a fruit, then sure, tomato is a fruit, but then so are a ton of other things that we usually consider vegetables. Implementing this definition would be a big hassle, so many consider it best to avoid this.

2+3*5+6 is not 31, but rather 23. If you follow the order of operations, you first do multiplication. 5 times 3 is 15. You then would add 2 and 6. to the 15. 15 plus 8, (2+6), is 23.

Ok so using PEMDAS 2 + 3 x 5 + 6 becomes 23 not 31. Second of all, the Mayans didn't predict the world would end, their calendar just ended because they believed humanity would enter a new era starting in 2012. Third, Bahamas and Bermuda don't touch the Caribbean Sea, the are in the Atlantic. Last but not least, America is a not a country, the United States of America is. But yeah, good April fools joke

Right, so, turning it in to "maths", on the assumption that because it ends in "s" means that it's plural, is wrong. It would be similar to abbreviating "economics" as "econs" instead of just "econ"

No, you do them in alphabetical order, so it would be:

2+3*5+6

= 2+3*11 (as 5 is the first alphabetically)

= 2+33 (as 11 is first alphabetically)

= 35

I will echo previous comments--at least two wrong answers given. "America" is not a country. Australia is the correct answer. And, for the math problem, look up or google PEMDAS. Answer is 23. How in the world did you get 31?

That was confusing, questions like the one about tomatoes, ostriches and Marco Polo and Santa were correct, but then there were also strewn through some randomly incorrect ones like America and the maths were incorrect.
