I believe the QWERTY sequence answer must be the easiest one, unless you haven't use a keyboard in your whole life

And yet more people get Superman's planet and Popeye's girlfriend... Maybe it's because in some countries the QWERTY is actually QWERTZ (German-speaking countries) or even AZERTY (France, if I'm not mistaken). Not to mention the countries where, the Latin alphabet is not the main one...

Not everybody realises that qwerty refers to the keyboard? Also no, not all devices come with the "standard english keyboard layout", there are *loads* of alternatives. Check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout .

First of all, you only have one, and it isn't that good. It has an outdated question (population), and short clues.

I think Bombardment should be accepted - but mostly because I'm a Simpson's fan

Apr 17, 2017
I had forgotten that for more than 40 years, but now that you mentioned it, that's what we called it too, though out of ignorance, some of us called it "bombardament. I never cared for it, because it just seemed unfair and somewhat cruel to the less-coordinated and slower kids. That always bothered me.

Literally every sport is cruel to the slower and less-coordinated kids.

Some of the non-athletic kids I knew loved it because they could get out front and get hit first, then spend the rest of the time sitting on the bleachers.

Do kids in the US actually play Dodgeball? I thought it was kind of a joke sport made up for TV and films

I did. And a game called Medic, which was basically dodgeball with one person assigned the power to tag people back into the game.

The clue immediately made me look up the translation of a sport we know as Völkerball, which indeed is dodgeball.

Judging from movies and tv shows Völkerball is played with way softer balls than Dodgeball though

Ugh! I kept reading the question wrong and trying to put the first four words of the Bible instead of God's first words.

But if God wrote the Bible, wouldn't the first four words be, "In the beginning God" (smile!)

The Egyptian obelisk "La Concorde" is also at the end of the Champs Elysees, the question doesn't say which direction you're going.

Level 63

"La Concorde" is not the obelisk, it's the square it's on - the "place de la Concorde". The obelisk itself can be referred to as either the "obélisque de la (place de la) Concorde", or "obélisque de Louxor".

I did not know at first about Eleanor Roosevelt. So, ironically the clue that the answer 'might surprise' me made it much easier.

Symbol for Krypton is KR not K, that is potassium. And maybe for chickenpox you could also accept varicella.

Level 63
Mar 6, 2017
The question is asking an element starting with the letter K, not that it's its symbol
