They mean the exact same thing. The Tsar variety of the word though just better represents the Slavic language

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.

Another deep red color would be Claret.
+1
level 59
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.

There was nothing Christian about the Crusades.

I think Don may be referring to the principles of Christianity and if so, his statement is entirely accurate.

Jan 13, 2019
That depends entirely on your interpretation of "Christian principles." There are many interpretations, backed by scripture, that sanction religious war.

For water storage tank, please consider adding 'canteen', 'cask', or 'cauldron', or consider changing the clue to "rain water storage tank"

Tzar. Czar is Polish.
+1
level 67
Jan 13, 2019
There is a Polish czar, but it is pronounced like English char and means 'charm' or 'spell'. The Polish equivalent of Russian tsar is spelled car—Polish c is pronounced ts.

level 71
Jan 13, 2019
I agree that an argument can be made for canteen, as the definition for 'tank' indicates that it is 'usually' large, meaning it can sometimes be small. But I'm OK if you don't want to add that. Cerise, on the other hand, has to be added. Or, given the surprising number of deep red colors beginning with 'c', change the question.

I believe "cerebrum" is incorrect, as it not only controls higher functions. "Cerebral cortex" would be more accurate (or even "neocortex", though this would exclude it from the quiz).
+1
level 66
Jan 14, 2019
I tried cerebral cortex first also, but it didn't take me long to come up with cerebrum when that didn't work
+2
level 39
Jan 14, 2019
I think cerebral cortex should be an acceptable answer,as well as cerise for red. Cerise kept coming to mind,I couldn't think of crimson to save my life! LOL!

cooler is also a water holder

The Cerebellum does not control higher brain functions. It helps to fine-tune movement. if you had your Cerebellum removed, you would survive with your personality intact
