Someone (I'm NOT volunteering!) might want to create a cruelly difficult spelling quiz. Perhaps they could start with the Duke basketball coach and the Kwik-e-Mart proprietor.

I got it because I have a terrible game guide for Mario 64 (the eel is named Unagi in it) I know it's terrible because multiple enemies are referred to by their Japanese names and ALL of the star names have a different name. It's like it was directly translated from Japanese despite the game guide coming out after the international releases and it would probably be easier to use the names from the game.

It's a quote. The whole point of quotes is that you, ya know, *quote* them. "A marigold by any other name would still smell as nifty," ~ Shakespeare, more or less, from "Romeo & Juliet"

From the comments, it's sad that most people got unagi from Friends. Funny, but sad. Avatar: The Last Airbender automatically sprang to my mind.

I mean, is the Japanese word for "eel" something someone really needs to know? Friends is a very popular show, so a lot of people would recognize from that. It's not like "unagi" is some term of colossal historical importance.

It's a quote. The point of quotes is that you, ya know, *quote* them, not paraphrase them. "Ask not what your condo association can do for you, ask what you can do for your condo association!" ~ John F. Kennedy, sorta-kinda

Why is Louisville general knowledge ? Who's Jack and why did he fall ? And I'm not sure why "unagi" is supposed to be general knowledge either. I mean there's always the Friends episode but I'm not sure they gave the actual translation...
