That U2 song is Vertigo. Also, he doesn't say "uno" (one), but "unos" (some), adding more weirdness to the counting.

But, according to Bono, there's a simple explanation for the weird count: "there may have been some alcohol involved".

At https://youtu.be/5onUXFV9Vto you can watch Bruce Springsteen's speech inducting U2 into the Rock & Roll hall of fame. The speech starts off making fun of the "14" and is entertaining from beginning to end.

More spellings should be accepted for Cronus, including Kronos.

Yeah, I usually go for that spelling first. Also, I think it would be more correct to refer to him as a titan rather than a god.

Agree. Wikipedia: In Greek mythology, Cronus, Cronos, or Kronos

je découvre ce quizz que je qualifierai de NUL. Trop de choses qui ne marchent pas: gésiers, quatorze, champs elysees, etc.etc.

le papillomavirus n'est pas accepté non plus.

Ce quizz doit être l'oeuvre (?) d'un anglophone...

Could you accept Kronos as an alternate spelling for Cronus? It's listed as an alternate spelling on Wikipedia.

In Latin, 'draco' actually just referred to a snake. It wasn't until the mediaeval period that it really came to mean 'dragons' as we understand them.

I think 'snake' etc. should be accepted.

To everyone saying 'Titan, not god': The titans were gods, just older ones. They are even referred to as 'theoi' by ancient greeks.

(I'd write this as a reply, but there's like 5 comments saying the same thing)

Can you accept Kronos, or Chronos, or Chronus? They're very close to right and I've seen Kronos much more frequently than Cronus.

Good thing you added "starting with gh" to the graverobber question, otherwise you'd have to accept "archaeologist" as an answer... ;-)

Please please please accept variant spellings of Kronos, Kronus, Chronus, Chronos, etc. Doesn't make sense to not. How we transliterated the Greek names isn't that good haha
