Tsar and Czar are both Russian corruptions of "ceaser." They mean the same thing.

Russian is written in the cyrillic alphabet. So really it's starts with neither a t or a c, but those are the two ways it is most often and most easily transliterated.

Person who steers a vessel could be captain, and the pilot's compartment in a commuter plane is also called the cabin.

The cabin is the bit where the passengers sit and the cabin crew work.

"Coo" could work instead of "croon" And a goblet is a cup too.

Without knowing too much about various parts of the brain, I had tried 'cerebral corex' and cerebellum and question whether or not those should be accepted as well.
+1
level 16
Apr 20, 2014
Cerebral cortex is the outer layer of the cerebrum. It does not control all of a person's cognitive functions. The cerebellum controls balance and coordination, not conscious thought and interpretation.

Cask could also work for water tank.

Seconded, Cox should really be accepted

Sheesh. If it doesn't take the answer you think it is, people, just try something else, for pete's sake. It's supposed to be a brainteaser, after all, not a giveaway. Except for "cox". That one should definitely be accepted, as TheShadow noted.

I'd never heard that a cistern is the same thing as a tank. Around here they are only underground pits for storing rainwater, not really the same thing as a tank. I learned something new today.

I did get cistern eventually. See a lot of them visiting old Greek/Roman/Byzantine/Ottoman ruins...

Another deep red color would be Claret.
+1
level 56
Jul 10, 2015
Claret, cardinal, and cherry are all deep red colors. Seems aribitrary to just pick crimson. Maybe you should add something to the clue. Like "the red in the University of Alabama's uniforms" or something.
