I'm guessing there's no such thing as an octabyte? (Finally guessed the answer.)

If there was, that would be eight bytes, not an eighth of a byte. For the record, eight bytes is called a quad word.

Are you telling me that the Sun is not a mass of incandescent gas, but is instead a miasma of incandescent plasma? Blasphemy!

Spelling of philosopher ? sorry just being pedantic !

Nothing to be sorry about. That's not how you spell philosopher and you're right to point it out.

Kept trying to figure out how I was misspelling Llewellyn myself.

How did we all think of Llewellyn before Lloyd? That's hilarious!

Level 22

I thought of Lloyd because of Lloyd's bank

Another vote for Llewellyn.

I had a friend in school called Llewelyn, but have never met a Lloyd. In fact the only L(l)oyd I can think of, Grossman, spells his name with a single L.

I have never heard the Do-Re-Mi song with SOL. It is in fact, SO. That is why the lyrics of the Sound of Music song say: "A needle pulling thread." Having said so, I looked it up on WIkipedia and it has BOTH SO and SOL as options....I was always taught WITHOUT the L.

Level 63
Apr 20, 2020
I agree, the L in SOL seems strange to me. I was always taught it without the L as well. Since LA follows it, the two L sounds blend together anyway making it a redundant letter.

La doesn't necessarily follow sol. It depends on the melody. Any note can follow any note.

Level 56

You know The Sound of Music did not invent these syllables, right ? Music notes are called that way in many European languages, such as French or Italian. And in those languages, it's definitely "sol" and not "so".

Like everyone else I’m a bit confused as to why the spelling of ‘Philosopher’ was incorrect.

I mean, literally hundreds of well-known artists have covered "Blowin' in the Wind." Peter, Paul and Mary, Joan Baez, Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, Marianne Faithfull, Dolly Parton, The Kingston Trio, Pete Seeger, Cher, Sam Cooke, Lena Horne, Bobby Darin, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Etta James, and Elvis Presley, just to name a few. I think it's safe to say they mean the original artist and songwriter.

I'm incredibly surprised Confucius is by far the least guessed answer. Especially when the hint gave two clues (The Analects and the Golden Rule)
