Was this cheating? I had no idea who the Washington Generals were, so I googled and as soon as I knew the sport, I knew the answer.

Yes, I would define cheating as pretty much any process that involves leaving this page to look something up, then coming back and answering a question based on what you find out. Of course, you're the only one that would ever know, so you can kinda make up your own rules, however you want to define them. Cheers.

I look up things when I can't remember the name, like who was in such and such a movie. The thing is, not to look up anything in the question, so if you look up a known co-star or a different film, you're demonstrating (to yourself, if no-one else) that you have knowledge of the answer. Now I know the answer I'm not sure I would have got it just from knowning the sport.

All of these constitute cheating. Looking up spelling is just devious: especially given that this is the type of quiz you can attempt several responses for; having the right spelling is part of the challenge. But hey, you're only cheating yourself really so one can do whatever one wants to do. It's just not going to be as rewarding.

I have only known the pearly gates to be the golden gates in heaven. Also tried first names like Matthew, Joseph, and Nicholas. Never would have thought Muhammad.

How is anybody supposed to know what a washington general is. The "team" made me think it was probably about sport. That is about it... (I HAVE heard of some american sportclubs though, bulls, socks for instance (and several more that would ring a bell when I see it) but never ever heard this name before.
