Are not fly larvae called maggots? I think that should be acceptable.
Level 81
Jul 31, 2017
Maggots are never acceptable.
Level 70
Mar 10, 2020
A maggot is the larva stage of a fly and should be acceptable in this quiz.
Level 76

oh... I know very well what the French Riviera is... but I was trying to type in translations for the French. You can't accept the blue coast?
Level 69
Jul 31, 2017
Agree. I tried so many forms of "blue coast" "coast of blue" "azure coast" "coast of azure", etc.

Also, not sure why "maggot" doesn't work (for the fly question, obviously).

Level 59
Jul 31, 2017
I've never heard it called the Blue Coast before (or Azur Coast) - no one would know to what you refer if you called it that.
Level 75

They thought they were asked to translate "Côte d'Azur" literally.

For some reason the Yardbirds question doesn't accept "God" as an answer.

He sat in the audience with the Beatles, The Who and other '60s rock royalty and saw Hendrix at an early gig and seriously considered giving up all together. More like a disciple.
Level 66
May 24, 2020
He's a much better guitar player than Lennon, Harrison, or Townshend. Whether Clapton considered giving up has no bearing on his actual skill, which was and is superior to most.
Level 58
May 24, 2020
clapton is the second best guitarist, ever. only hendrix is better.
Level 85
May 24, 2020
That seems to be the popular consensus.

"since its [not it's] current capital"
Level 32

So everyone calls it côte d'azur accept people who speak English apparently...
Level 54

That rules you out then!

'except' not 'accept'

I only knew it as Cote d'Azur, but I knew the French Riviera was somewhere in the general area, so it made sense to guess it.
