Vera Wang is definitely most famous for wedding gowns, but she's very famous for her other dresses as well - she generally outfits a few of the nominees at the Academy Awards every year, and none of them are getting married to Oscar.

Michele Obama frequently wears Vera Wang evening gowns. I don't think she is wearing wedding dresses. This needs to be changed to gowns or dresses. Or fashion.

No way...She is MOST known for wedding dresses. That would be like asking what is Michael Jordan most known for and having the answer be Sports. While he plays golf and played minor league baseball, he is MOST known for basketball.

Had to read it 5 times before I figured out that race actually meant one of those "who gets there first" things and not type of dog. I think even the picture leads to think about "type of dog".

The question is misleading because Husky is a dog race (breed). At least where I come from.

The Dr House/Sherlock Holmes comparisons ran deep on the show. I mean, I wouldn't expect you to know that if you never watched it, of course. But even House and Holmes ("homes") were meant to be similar, House had Wilson and Holmes had Watson, they both lived at 221b on their respective streets, they both used drugs and played an instrument, and they were both so good at their jobs that they figued out the mysteries that no one else could. :)

Unsurprising that the English history question is the least-guessed answer in an American-dominated quiz website. Which is sad considering British history is American history for most Americans.

I find the pesto question a bit odd. I guess it's fairly common to put pine nuts in it. but if a typical topping for ice cream is sprinkles, it could also be chocolate sauce or a cherry. so why does pine nuts get special treatment?

Because pine nuts are not "fairly common" in pesto, they're a required ingredient. Pesto consists of basil, pine nuts, salt, garlic, Parmiggiano Reggiano, pecorino and olive oil. I'm sure that some people have their very own recipe with whatever else they want to put in there, and that's absolutely fine, but if they call it "pesto" they're lying to you.

Yeah, tom88, your anology of sprinkles is to ice cream as pine nuts is to pesto is not valid here. The appropriate one is CREAM is to ice cream as pine nuts is to pesto – as dunkinggandalf said: a required ingredient.

Musicals are hardly ever written by one person ("Hamilton" is a rare exception). Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote the music for Phantom but he and Richard Stilgoe wrote the book and Mr. Stilgoe wrote the lyrics with Charles Hart. You should probably change the question to "who wrote the music to Phantom of the Opera?"
