I'm not sure the Star Wars one is as "easy" as the others. I had to guess a few before I got it.
+5
Level 71
Jun 2, 2016
I've watched the film and still didn't get it, so I'm quite surprised that 88% did... I guess there are lots of Star Wars fans out there :)

Level 80
Oct 10, 2016
One of the most successful and referenced films of all time. Most recent reference I can recall is from Captain America: Civil War where they were surprised Peter didn't know the name of the film.
+2
Level 34
Oct 11, 2016
why is Star Wars harder than Bugs Bunny/
+7
Level 63
Oct 12, 2016
Some are only easy if you are of a certain demographic. I missed both the Star Wars and Bugs Bunny ones.
+8
Level 80
Dec 18, 2019
^ is that demographic "human being who lives on Earth?" Both of these things are deeply woven in to the fabric of global culture and have been for over 40 years now.

Dec 18, 2019
Well, people in non-English speaking countries may know the these in a translated form, but not in the original one. You may be surprised, but people in Serbia, for example, are familiar with the expression "Hej, Šefe, koji ti je vrag", which is very far from the literal translation of "What's up, Doc". And, although I did know the answer, it is far from common knowledge here, although its translated form is well known.

fair point

Level 83
May 5, 2020
"Deeply woven in to the fabric of global culture"?? The Star Wars movies are primarily aimed at 13 year old boys. I've seen a lot of hyperbolic things said about Star Wars, but this might be the funniest one yet.

Level 80
Jun 28, 2020
It's not at all hyperbolic. You're out of touch.

Im not a star wars fan so this wasnt easy for me. I tried star wars 2 at first, then just guessed sub titles for the films i could remember and got it eventually.

Star Wars 2 is a logical guess on Earth but in a galaxy far, far away the cardinal numbers apparently go 4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 3, 7, 3.5, 8...

The 7th question is very difficult for someone who is not Christian.

or Jewish or Muslim or saw the Best Picture of 1956 or who ever heard "All You Zombies".

Well none of those things pertained to me either so I guess there is no reason I should've known it? :D
+1
Level 57
Aug 14, 2016
None pertain to me, but I have read the Bible to come to a religious (or non religious) decision so I suppose I know.
+7
Level 47
Oct 10, 2016
Moses is not Christian. The 10 Commandments is in the old testement, which has rules for: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. The New testement is for Christianity. It is also an easy answer if you are good at history.
+3
Level 80
Oct 10, 2016
If you count up all the people in the world who grew up in countries that were either majority Muslim/Christian/Jewish or where there was a sizable Muslim/Christian/Jewish minority, I think you would get over 5 billion people. Maybe if you're from China or Japan you might not have heard of Moses.

Of course I've heard of Moses (from living in the US), but I don't know about him!

Im an atheist and I got it right

its easy question.. of course atheists know more about religion in general than christians do haha

or jewish, or muslim, or owns a television set, or has ever read anything

Mar 19, 2017
Not Jewish, not Muslim, don't watch religious shows, and don't read Abrahamic religious books.
+3
Level 67
Dec 18, 2019
They don't even have to be religious books or shows. The Simpson's did their version of the Moses story, and the story is referenced in so many non religious places that it hardly matters if you are religious at all. if you don't know this, you are, without a doubt, in the minority.
+1
Level 67
Dec 18, 2019
Also seems crazy to me that you have reached level 60 on jetpunk without coming across a question about Moses.
+2
Level 42
Oct 10, 2016
I'm atheist but it was still easy, Moses is referenced quite a lot in pop culture so you can do it just by cycling through famous biblical characters.

This is like saying that the flamingos question is very difficult for someone who is not a zoologist. Nonsense.

I support this kind of quizzes. You should make Kids zone, or something like that in Top categories. Youngsters should start to get knowledge with easier games.Good job :)

As an European, this makes me think I'd love an "Easy US quizz", to see what I'm lacking.

I think that it is a European, even though it does not follow the rule, it just sounds better.

While we all learn in school to type "Mt. Everest" when the question contains "Mountain + big", that is not always correct.

Mauna Kea is known as the "tallest" mountain of the world. Further, the summit of Cimborazo is the highest point of the Earth (closest to the sun and furthest from the centre of the Earth).

Mt. Everest is just the location where the air pressure at ground is minimum.

+7
Level 69
Oct 10, 2016
Yeah, and that's the thought process most would go through when solving a quiz with the title "Easy General Knowledge 1".
+1
Level 14
Oct 11, 2016
You are correct that Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain, However Chimborazo is not the highest above sea level, with an elevation of 6,263m, compared to Everest's 8,848m. Chimborazo is simply the point on the earth's surface that is furtherest from the earth's centre, due to it's location along the equatorial bulge.

Dec 18, 2019
I hate this argument, no one who asks the question "what is the tallest mountain on earth?" wants the answer from the sea floor. it's very clear that they are talking about being above sea level, you're just being annoying.

BTW I d like to mention that Flamingos are normally white, unless they eat certain food. I can't remember what it is but it makes them pink, Ive seen them at the zoo where they were white before haha

I typed in white before I typed in pink for the same reason, their colouring is totally diet based. Forgot this was an 'easy' quiz and assumed there was more to that word 'normally'.
