Atlanta is the busiest individual airport, but the clue asks for the city with the busiest airport system. London has 6 international airports. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airports_of_London

She has several albums now: 19, 21, and 25. If you see Adele trivia in the future, just guess numbers.

It's kind of important to know, he's the third in line to succeed his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. Grandson of Charles and Diana, Prince & Princess of Wales.Not sure why you're proud to not know a likely future King. It's not like they were asking for Kim & Kanye's kid's name.

I put Royal-philia on line with the Kardashians actually. It's tabloidal, escapist sycophancy in absentia toward people who are are far richer and more famous than the average jane/joe could ever hope to be.

If all this kind if trivia us so petty and boring, why are you doing a General Knowledge quiz, which is full of useless information?

Level 65
Mar 3, 2019
Beetboy didn't say all the information on this quiz is petty and boring. He cited two particular subjects (the royal family and the Kardashians) that he thinks are useless. Stands to reason that if those families were the subjects of quizzes, he'd just skip them and enjoy the many other subjects covered on this site. Nobody likes every quiz. He's also right about the royal family. They seem like nice enough people, but the fascination with them and their unjustified wealth is absurd.

Good call filling in the answer as soon as you've typed 'Leonardo'. "The Da Vinci Code" is nonsense - for many reasons - in this case because nobody in the art world calls him anything other than just Leonardo.

The main character wasn't "in the art world." He was a professor of religious iconology.

It is definitely incorrect to just call him "da Vinci," but it is also definitely the more common name, so I think people would have a strong case in arguing for it. Good on the quizmaster for allowing both! The world we live in!

The royals used to keep going until they had at least two sons - the heir and the spare - so William and Kate are just continuing the tradition. BTW, some of my favorite people have three children, including me.
