By far the most common term used for the Catholic service is Mass; perhaps it could at least be an option? I would also take issue with using the term "wafer" - we don't believe it to be that - perhaps it could be rephrased as "During which Catholic service would one receive Holy Communion?"

Mass will work now.

Protestants receive communion as well and it's called "communion." No one care if you call it "wafer" or whatever.

Whether you believe it's a wafer or not doesn't change the fact that it's still a wafer

Emoticons are done with text symbols, like so - :) :p :o, etc. Emojis are their own thing.

I wondered this too... tried all sorts of things after emoticons

(weird actually, I would not consider : ) icons, while I would consider little pictures as the "emojis" above icons.

Since the 110 Meter Hurdles are the High Hurdle version of the race, why won't High Hurdles work as an answer? You've got Hurdles in the darn answer!

For the question "What racing event is commonly 110 meters in length?" I put "hurdle" and wondered why it didn't work and then tried hurdle jumps etc. Please accept "hurdle".

The 110-meter race is typically a men's event; the women's equivalent is 100 meters. Also, it's worth noting that there are a number of different length hurdle races, depending on which governing body (Olympics, college, high school athletics, etc) is sanctioning the race.

In the original movie Frankenstein (1931) the assistant's name was Fritz and in the son of Frankenstein he was called Igor. Both parts played by Dwight Frye

Film festival should be accepted for the last question, "at what festival could one earn a palme d'or". Cannes is Where it is, a film festival is What it is. Atleast as an acceptable answer.

Still, it should be Cannes film festival, not just any film festival.

I tried 'realist' as the opposite of 'optimist', but never expected it to work. Typical.
+1
Level 27
Dec 28, 2020
It didn't work because realist isn't the opposite of optimist, pessimist is.

Can you add alternate name to Henna. As you have stated India in the question, where it is called Mehndi.

I vouch for "emoticon" being accepted for "emoji"!

It's technically true
