I'm fairly certain that Barbie and Ken broke up, I remember hearing it on the news a few years ago. I think she's going out with a surfer named Dwayne or Dwight or something now...

Why? What do the Romans and Latin have to do with a Greek name on an English language website? How about accept the Serbo-Croatian translation of OPEC on a Middle East quiz?

Haha classic--every time someone from the UK says "In the UK we say blah blah" someone else from the UK chimes in with "I've lived here all my life and never heard that one." For such a small group of islands (relatively speaking) it sure is linguistically diverse!

If you are going by 1939 borders and countries, Poland did suffer the greatest casualties by percent. However, if you go by modern borders and countries, 25% of Belarus died during WWII and 25% were deported. Ukraine has similar statistics to Poland. Read Bloodlands if you want the whole horrifying picture.

You should also accept "Undersea" for the SCUBA question

…Or why not "Unicorn"? Sorry, that's just my sarcastic way of saying that the U in the acronym SCUBA stands for Underwater, and does *not* stand for "Undersea". This is why "Undersea" is not and should not be accepted. Look at it as a learning experience!

Fun fact: in my area there's a big lake where you can rent SCUBA gear and dive down to the bottom (over 100 feet down) and see the mainly intact remnants of old roads, bridges, railroad trestles, houses, stores, and even a couple churches that were all there before the riverbed was flooded to form the lake. Definitely don't need to go under the sea for a cool SCUBA diving experience!

Champagne should absolutely be accepted at least. Also couldn't figure out the Mark Wahlberg question because "failure" wasn't accepted. Nor were: bad, abysmal, and horrible.

Sometimes, depending on how it's used. In a word like "yellow," it's a consonant, while in "cyan" it's a vowel. The "5 V's" in the question are the five letters that are always vowels.

I am 99% certain any French person taking this quiz will die a thousand deaths at the fact that you use Sparkling wine and Champagne interchangeably. It would be like me saying what sport is represented by the NHL and accepting field hockey as the answer. Yes, they are both hockey, but no, they aren't the same thing. I would suggest you still accept Sparkling wine, but change the answer that shows to Champagne.
