Beltway is not a term for Washington DC... sometimes Washington DC is referred to as "inside the beltway"... but the "inside the" part is essential otherwise you are just referring to the road (Interstate 495) that runs in a circle around Washington DC, not Washington DC itself.

alright nevermind... with a bit of googling I found people referring to both "inside the beltway thinking/policy/whatever" and "beltway thinking/policy/whatever"... so I guess the quiz is right... though IMO this is probably just a recent corruption of the term that originally made sense, probably by people who weren't from Washington and didn't know what it even meant. oh well... language is dynamic.

Actually, kalbahamut, I feel your first comment is correct. Just become some out-of-town news media misuse terminology does not make it correct! I live in Metro DC, and we NEVER say something like, "We're going into the Beltway for dinner tonight!" (although we do complain about the traffic on the Beltway an awful lot). The hint could easily be changed to "a term for the road that encircles a city, such as Washington, DC". (Baltimore has one, too.)

Timing belts and V Belts should be accepted in lieu of serpentine belt. What it's called is dependent on the auto manufacturer.

I know this is really late but...the timing belt (or chain) is different from the serpentine belt. One is an integral part of the internal combustion engine and the other uses the power generated by the engine to run various auxiliary devices.

This guy is correct. Timing belt and serpentine belts are totally different. The only similarity is you're screwed if either one breaks.

Apr 8, 2016
The cam belts you've shown are all toothed and have an exact timing needed for the function of the engine, serpentine belts are smooth and work things other than the engine.

Please accept red as well as black belt for martial arts. Numerous martial arts (Jiu jitsu, which I took for several years, as well as judo, I believe aikido, and karate too if I recall correctly) ACTUALLY have a red belt as the absolute highest colour available. They're just quite rare due to how hard they are to earn.

I agree, red belts ARE the highest belts in some less-well know martial arts. That said, the most common color for the highest rank/dan is black.
