I think Gassu's quiz deserves a star as well, especially as they wrote their quiz three days earlier than this one.

In my defense, my quiz was completed a week ago or so, but I was waiting to release it. Also, once I released "France Multiple Choice", it was kind of obvious where I was going next. No offense to @Gassu69 of course, whose quiz is excellent. In any case, I don't get much out of running JetPunk, but I do get to enjoy the arbitrary exercise of power, WAHAHAHA.

I have one! Plus several with tigers, also seem to be very popular. I also have a national geographic one, which is a mountain of snow haha all black and white tones and one tiny person in a yellow jacket.

x-rays are incapable of being invented.

Well x-rays are used to take x-rays (x-ray images). I'm sure the question meant the images.

Level 72
Feb 8, 2019
Agree; I thought this was a trick question. It's like asking what country stars or love or hearing or electrons were invented. X-rays being discovered as opposed to invented kinda screws up the whole question; maybe use one of Gassu's instead??

Hey Quizmaster, in Question 11, "Englightment" should be "Enlightenment". Really informative quiz though!

In the 11th question, you spelled 'Enlightenment' incorrectly.

Apr 11, 2019
I see in an above comment that you have already made a correction to that word, but although you made it closer to the correct spelling, there is still a redundant 'g'.

It's funny that you would use the Italian Isetta for a quiz about Germany... but everybody gets tired of VW Beetles after a while, I guess.

The Carl von Clausewitz answer is not accurate, the correct answer being "he's not famous".

Maybe rephrase it as "known for"?

For the question on what letter is not used in German, I think you should change the Z with an X or something because two questions after is a question asking what Zeitgeist means.

Really good point, (having German words starting with a Z on the quiz and subsequently asking if the German language uses Z's)

I am slightly confused by #14. The correct answer is supposed to be "a castle", but isn't a castle (by definition) a fortified structure? Neuschwanstein is not, though it has elements that are supposed to look "castle-like".

This is getting a little bit lost in translation, I think. In German it is called "Schloss Neuschwanstein", which could be translated more accurately as "chateau" or "palace" but for the English translation they somehow decided to call it a castle... maybe because King Ludwig II had it designed like a typical medieval German fairytale castle.

The thought of Uwe Boll as Chancellor is horrifying and hilarious in equal measure. I think Trump would look mild-mannered and considerate by comparison.
