For the south question, can we just type the second word? I think south would be implied through the question.

I'm fairly certain they mean the original Pink Panther, not the recent remake. :) You're not wrong, though, technically!

He probably should be accepted, unless the question gets adjusted.

I love Steve Martin, but his Clouseau was awful. For Inspector Clouseau, there's Peter Sellers and actors who shouldn't have bothered.

I've never in my life heard anyone refer to a great white as simply a "white shark". Is typing "great" really that difficult?

Is it urban legend that dolphins attack sharks?
+1
Level 24
Apr 3, 2016
no but its would be to dangerous for them to attack the great white so they only attack sharks they would have a possibility of winning against

Great Whites will often avoid dolphins. Dolphins will attack a great white if provoked, but I think the question is looking for a species that will actually seek out a great white, which an orca will do. It should probably be pointed out, however, that orcas are, however, dolphins and not whales.

given the right situation I'm sure they would attack one. they are smart enough to know if they have it outnumbered, and if it was attacking another dolphin they might come help rescue it since they are extremely social creatures. But I don't think they would target them. Orcas on the other hand actually do target great whites.

Orcas are in the dolphin family.

SO many questions on here are about that movie. I really need to see it so I'm not grasping for answers every time. (I mean, I know the obvious quotes, but this website tests more than your knowledge of obvious quotes!)

I am surprised that only 43 percent of people got the Great Red Spot question right. You should probably also accept GRS for that question because that is a common abbreviation. Good Quiz!

Should accept anticyclonic storm for Jupiter. The big red spot is a nickname.
+2
Level 67

But "anticyclonic storm" is simply a type of storm that can happen on Earth as well, it doesn't refer to this storm specifically. Its official name is in fact the Great Red Spot, or GRS for short.

I feel like fife could also be an acceptable answer for the clue "like a flute, but smaller" because it is very similar to a piccolo (mostly only differs in pitch and volume).

Amazing what properly reading a questions does... Spent way too much time thinking of another German athletic clothing company that had mountain on its logo after I trying Adidas since their newer logo is in 3 stripe mountain shape. After 2 minutes ruminating on the question I reread it and magically lion appeared in the clue. Weird how that extra word changed the answer and shifted it from one brother to the other.

You should accept "Fife" for Piccolo. They are similar to and both smaller than a flute.
