Technically, depression isn't a stage of greif. Shock, Anger, Bargaining, Sadness, and Acceptance. Depression is a diagnosis, not a stage.

Level 68
Feb 23, 2016
Ya I tried sadness first too. I believe that technically depression is not part of regular grief. depression is a state on it's own that could easily be caused by grief. so I guess the point I'm trying to make is that depression should work, but so should sadness

Shock and sadness are what I was taught, too.

The word depressed is often used (confusingly) to mean to feel down, instead of clinically depressed.

Level 73
Feb 21, 2021
I’ve always been taught that the five stages are: Disbelief, Anger, Blame, Depression, Acceptance. Considering that disbelief is basically the same as denial, it should be accepted. I also think depression is fine as a stage of grief because it’s not a transient feature of the grieving person’s mind, like sadness would be, but a permeating fog or feeling that something isn’t right. I have no idea where blame came from.

"Ginger" spice was originally called "Sexy" spice. I believe it was changed to better suit the American audience.

No doubt we inherited that attitude from them, though to be fair they did kick the Puritans out

Nope, Posh was originally Sexy, but then someone decided that implies the other ones aren't sexy. I'm honestly annoyed with myself that I know that.

I don't believe I missed the five stages of grief! I'm so mad I did! I'd give anything if I could have just gotten them all! Ugh...I'm just so sad about it! Oh, well...life goes on!

How do you do this quiz configuration?
+5
Level ∞
Feb 12, 2021
Replying 6 years later... It is now possible to do this by choosing "manual mode" in Step 4, then choosing "Format as Groups of Things".

To make this work, you'll want to put the category in the first column of Step 2, and the answer in the second column.

Great quiz, but the five positions of Basketball? A sport barely played outside of America. Kinda limiting the chances of those of us from the rest of the world.

I'm American and I didn't know them either. Anyway, you get revenge on us with all the soccer/football quizzes.

There are 149 countries currently in the FIBA rankings. Basketball is definitely played outside of America.

Level 67

Basketball unlike baseball is quite universal (though not as big as soccer) When i saw basketball I thought it was put in specefically to not be too US-centric.

Not that I know anything about basketball haha

Baseball is popular in a lot of countries too, Japan, cuba, dominican republiuc. I think the NFL is the one that is mostly only popular in the U.S

Level 74
Feb 21, 2021
Basketball is quite big in Lithuania, Australia, Canada, the Philippines, Argentina, Russia, Spain, China, Brazil, Serbia, Greece, Italy, France, Croatia, Slovenia, and Turkey. I'd say that is more than 'barely played outside of America.'

If you stopped a hundred Brits in the street and asked them to name one basketball position, I would be surprised if more than a handful could do it.

There's also St Marx cemetery in Vienna :)

But I doubt very seriously if it was named for the Marx brother. It is most likely a variation of Saint Mark.

I did get over it but I kinda expect "Numeri" and "Deuteronomium" to be accepted.

Grouping things together is fun, even though it may be considered politically incorrect or somewhat discriminatory by 21st century standards. That being said, I doubt anyone refused to take any of the grouping quizzes on moral grounds.

I kept putting in forward and guard for the basketball players and couldn't figure out why they weren't right.

The only basketball position I got was point guard, and that one is thanks to vine. "Hey my name is Trey and I have a basketball game tomorrow!"

Thank you, Troy who has a basketball game tomorrow, for helping be know "point guard".

Just a minor grammatical question - any reason why one entry in the great apes section needs an "s" versus the others which don't? Spent some time trying to figure out which one I missed when it was just missing an "s". Thanks.

Okay.

Perhaps accept "prayer" or "pray 5 times a day" for Islam instead of just "worship."

Kiev is one syllable right?

Feb 16, 2021
Kee- ehv. Two syllables.

Level 65
Feb 21, 2021
I thought so too. Turns out there are two syllables, just not the ones commonly used in English. There's a nice little video in this article explaining and demonstrating the correct pronunciation

Level 61
Feb 24, 2021
I came here to comment this. "Kiev," based on the Russian, is 2 syllables, but since the '90s, the official transliteration is "Kyiv," from the Ukrainian, which is 1 syllable. As a former resident of Ukraine, Kyiv should count as 1 syllable and thus presents problems for this quiz.

Please accept "Shahada" as a type-in for "Belief".
+2
Level 64
Feb 21, 2021
What aboud Lome?

Level 72
Feb 21, 2021
It's Lomé with an "é", so 2 syllables : Lo-mé.

Level 67
Feb 21, 2021
Can you accept "shahada" for "belief" under the Five Pillars of Islam category? I knew the Arabic name, I just didn't know a good translation for it in English.

I wonder why this quiz was reset

One Direction has never been on either my musical or cultural radar beyond the fact that they exist. Might as well ask me to type the middle names of a j-pop group in 17th century kanji (there's a keyboard layout for that, right?).

Exactly. I was moving right along, and then I see ONE DIRECTION LOL. Other than my teenie bopper sister-in-laws, I have never heard them mentioned by anyone.

Zayn and Harry have become stars in their own right. I am well outside the demographic for their music, but I at least know their names. The others...not a clue.

I missed one of the stages of grief because I got Snowhead Mountain and Great Bay mixed up.

Honestly the Deku Butler during the end credit montage is probably the saddest single moment in the whole game

Level 72
Feb 22, 2021
I tried about ten things such as "no god but god," "only one god," "monotheism," etc. I even tried "la illaha illa allah" (which is probably spelled poorly). It's possible that there was something I should have gotten - zakat and hajj both worked.

I'm not knocking anyone who got all the guys in One Direction, I got all 5 Spice Girls so I can't talk crap, but I'm not as bothered as I usually am about not knowing something. Styles was it for me.

Cleared out Carribean islands, Caspian countries, Bible, Spanish obviously, great apes, Pillars. It's funny how people sometimes forget humans technically count. Also I have no idea how I got Bible books so easily I know almost nothing about the structure of the Bible but I guess I've heard the names a lot

Today I've learned that I've been pronouncing "Seoul" wrong for most of my life. In my brain, it was two syllables: se-oul. :-(
