maybe you are mixed up with 7 sins or something? I meant something differently but cant come up with it. Someone on another quiz compared the 7 sins to another list, which had strife on it ( It think some biblcal text, I am not sure anymore)

You should accept Nick Chopper for the tin man under the "Main Wizard of Oz Characters". Don't try to argue about it, because if you do, just look in the first book of the Oz series. It calls the Tin Man Nick Chopper.

I gotta agree with zizzers4 here, so if you don't want to accept Nick Chopper, maybe specify you're only looking for the *movie* characters? N.B. How Nick Chopper came to be made of tin is a VERY disturbing story for a children's book. Let's just say he didn't always hit the log with his axe. Think Nebula (Thanos's daughter.)

Yes, but it's not called the British Open. It is just the Open (Golf Championship). Accept British Open as a type-in by all means, but please label it "The Open"

Pedantic I know, but "freestyle" isn't a stroke, its an event where you are free to use any stroke you like; most use the crawl
+1
level 59
Mar 16, 2016
Freestyle sounds like the "Normal" stroke. It is the fastest stroke. Strange that it is also called the crawl? "The freestyle stroke, also known as front crawl, is the fastest and most efficient of the competitive swimming strokes. That’s why it is always used in the freestyle event of swimming competitions and is also often the preferred stroke of experienced swimmers and triathletes." -- Not me

Aug 30, 2014
Weird, isn't it? There must be something inherently memorable about the word "ventricle" that just isn't about the word "atrium". I'm one of the 16% who remembered the former but not the latter.

Jun 14, 2017
Glad to hear you say that, ander217. That's what I typed initially. Scratched my head, and then went to "atrium". Now I'm wondering how I knew atrium, when all I knew from my school years was auricle. Go figure.

Feb 3, 2015
I tried right and left auricle and gave up when those didn't work. In my day, we were taught the heart had only auricles and ventricles. Now I realize that, too, has changed and the name auricle is given to a portion of the atrium. How is a person expected to keep up when they keep changing everything we were taught in school??? Oh, by taking Jetpunk quizzes. Thank you.

Quebec borders the Atlantic!
+1
level 59
May 14, 2018
I think he is right. The extreme northeastern point, where Quebec, Newfoundland and Nunavut meets, is at the Atlantic ocean. So even if you don't want to count St Lawrence bay, then it still borders the Atlantic ocean. And by using the logic that the St Lawrence bay don't count, P.E.I. shouldn't be counted as on the Atlantic either.

It is a loosely defined region of Canada only including Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and PEI, not the provinces the ocean literally touches. ;)

TIL canter is not considered the same gait as gallop. I rode regularly for 11 years and had no idea. (Side note: I'm francophone and canter is translated as "petit galop", so it might just be a matter of language, but I can't recall ever being given different instructions for gallop vs canter.)
+1
level 70
May 19, 2018
Easy way to differentiate is that if you're a good rider (which I'm not) you can stay in the saddle in canter. Try that in gallop and you'll be singing soprano.

Brunei has its own English dialect that, although considered a national language, is taught in schools and, as such, most educated people in Brunei have at least a basic understanding of the language. It isn't, however, all that noteworthy because Brunei Malay is still much more widely spoken.
