MMR well known vaccine.. REALLY well known... Millions across the globe have had it, or taken their children to have it. That this should be known to more than a book, even one written by a president, really shouldn't be a surprise, should it?

Oh no, someone's offended, better not say anything. If we all kept our opinions to ourselves, it would be impossible to say anything. Someone out there would probably be offended by the saying 'the sky is blue'.

Obama wrote the book himself. You can compare it to his first book, Dreams From My Father, which he wrote before anyone knew who he was. The writing is the same.

It requires knowing three things: who Liv Tyler is, who her father is, and what band he leads. If you don't know one of the three, it's hard to get that right.

It's pretty well known, mainly because of how brutal and dangerous it is (things like targeting eyes/testicals) and that it encourages you to do anything to win a fight, unlike many martial arts which often tend to have some sort of honour system or are meant to be used in self-defence.

All developing larvae in the bee hive are fed royal jelly for three days. Those targeted to become queens are put in special cells and fed large amounts of it. Our beekeeper has put about 60 hives on our pond bank for the purpose of raising queens to sell. More people who have the right environment should get into that business to help bees survive. They are needed to pollinate our food crops, and they are dying in large numbers due to the varroa mite, lack of pollen diversity, and certain pesticides.

Yes! Also it's easy to build a little habitat with paper rolls to attract mason bees in the yard. They're adorable and help pollinate the neighbourhood.

I only got two that were guessed by less than 50% of people, but still, the least-guessed answer is the one that's included in the question? Every word in Thomas A. Swift's Electric Rifle is capitalised, people. You know what that means. It's clearly an ER.

Worst general knowledge quiz for me, personally. Only got 7 while usually I get 15-19. I didnt even have enough time to read all the questions! Let alone think about it. Did this one have much less time? (Which annoyingly you cant see after the quiz is, similarly, you cant see if you ever did the quiz before and what your score was, that would be nice. Only afterwards you can check the stats)

A carnivore's diet consists of mainly or exclusively flesh. While herbivores digestive systems are specifically adapted to consume plant matter as their primary source of nutrients. And while Omnivores eat both flesh and plants they do not fall into either of the previous two categories, first because their diet does not consist mainly or exclusively of flesh and second because they are not specifically adapted to process plant matter (which is generally more difficult to digest than flesh). So no omnivores are not in fact both carnivores and herbivores.

Has the art emoji been removed? It doesn’t appear on mobile (I’ve even refreshed the page). Quite a bit harder without that clue.
