As far as I know, Laika was famous for being the first dog in space. So: go to space, leave earth, fly to space, be in a rocket and so on... after a frustrating time, finally managed to type "leave orbit", which was accepted. Maybe something about space flight should be accepted too? (Unless orbiting is really the thing you want.)

Hippocampus is also latin for seahorse. So it should be correct also that hippocampus is located in the sea

I wrote circle the earth in space for Laika, which is orbiting, but since I didn't remember what word (one of many) that could be used it was a miss. Ridiculous.

i think it might be more helpful if the question asked for the version of a steeple on a mosque, rather than ‘the muslim version’; it’s more specific and technically more correct

I didn't realize internet service was so strong under bridges.

Level 81
Nov 2, 2020
It's actually not. There is almost no broadband service available under most bridges around the world, so sub-bridge dwellers can't easily stream video or play games or do other diverting things on the Internet that most well-adjusted people do. To find amusement they have to resort to posting inflammatory comments to try and make other people as miserable and angry as they are.
