What about "jenny" for mule and "colt" for pony?
+2
level 48
Jul 11, 2014
Only people who know much about horses are likely to be familiar with the terms "colt" and "jenny" (especially "jenny"), and those people are considerably less likely to be googling the difference between horses and ponies, or mules and donkeys.

Jenny makes no sense because it is a female donkey. That's like googling the difference between a person and a girl. It would work if one googled the difference between a jenny and a hinny, or a jack and a jenny. Pony no longer appears on the quiz, but seems to me that colt would make sense if it did. I'm surprised that colt isn't more well-known.

I hardly ever say this, but I agree. Finished it with over 5 mins left, and I think cutting off 2 or 3 mins could be useful.

ok, so you can butcher the spelling of a lot of things in jetpunk and still get credit; however, you couldn't accept "wolly mammoth". I know it's only one "o" short, but come on. You know i knew the answer.
+1
level 61
Sep 7, 2018
Yeah, but that's not phonetic. If you were missing an L (i.e., "wooly," it would still sound right, so that's a reasonable misspelling. "Wolly" doesn't sound the same as "woolly," so it's not a likely misspelling. You're basically asking the quizmaster to accept every possible misspelling that is off by one letter, which sounds like a lot of work for QM.

how the hell is a buzzard like a vulture?
+1
level 67
Sep 13, 2018
People read/hear of buzzards feeding on carrion, and the first familiar bird that comes to mind is a vulture. So they associate them without ever knowing what a buzzard looks like.

I was asking myself the same question. I mean, they look totally different and buzzards are better known for hunting mice and other rodents than for eating carrion. Then again, I grew up in an area where buzzards are fairly common, so maybe that's why the difference is so clear to me...
