I would say that Ethiopia was successfully colonized by Italy, but then we'd get to the complicated part of international politics known as recognition. So I'll just stick with saying "Good quiz!"

Why is the Italian colonization of Ethiopia not considered European colonization?

More occupied than colonised. Just as we wouldn't say France was 'colonised' by Germany 6 years later.

Ethiopia was briefly colonized by Italy. All African countries were once colonies, but Liberia by Western powers, not European.

Briefly occupied by Italy after a war. We didn't colonize Italy when we occupied it a few years later either.

haha I typed in "bethelem" instead of "nazareth". I guess I really need to study my Christian history, but in my defense "bethelem" has eight letters as well.

Be fair Kiwiquizzer, 'Bethlehem' wouldn't have 8 letters then.

I contend that running "from" the bulls would be a more apt description of what happens in Pamplona.

I misunderstood "long race" in the Greek clue to mean a long line of peoples, ancestry...not an actual foot race. *face palm*

ABC's Wide World of Sports is becoming such a distant memory that Acapulco cliff diving is the least guessed answer. So much better of a show than to spend 4 hours watching a 60-minute football game with 60 seconds of highlights.

The Acapulco answer would be a no-brainer for anyone who saw "Fun in Acapulco" with Elvis Presley and Ursula Andress.

"Major City" is somewhat vague. At what population does something become a major city? with how sparse Canada's population is, I'd consider Grande Prairie (north of Edmonton) to be a pretty large city.
