Yeap, definitely needs more time. I hadn't a clue on the romantic poets, no interest in poetry, and even still I was struggling to go over answers I'd missed

People do not know their Romantic poets?? I'm shocked! And disappointed. :( Then again, maybe I'm just biased. Actually, no....people really should know them. If they come from an English-speaking country, of course. Wordsworth?? Come on!

I've heard the name and know he is a poet. No, I didn't remember he was a romantic poet. And no, English is not my first language.

As a French speaker, I have only heard of Blake, Shelley and Byron. Maybe a bit Yeats.

And there's your problem: Keats ≠ Yeats. They're not even pronounced the same (another trap the English have laid to catch the unwary).

Can you name any six English-language African writers? Six from South Asia? Some English speakers who can might even find some of their work more relevant or (heresy alert) beautiful than Wordsworth's.

Well Economics isn't really a Nobel...

level 66
Jul 7, 2017
ya, it's not one of the actual Nobel prizes, but since it's commonly referred to as the "Nobel Prize in Economics" I don't think it's a big stretch to put it on the quiz

I don't think it fits. It's not the same organization that grants it, right? Doesn't it just piggyback on the name somehow?

They're all granted by different organizations

What about Jane? Why is she never included as a monarch?

Lady Jane Grey was the English Monarch famously for just 9 days, but technically was still the monarch.

I thought of her too, and Matilda. Almost completely forgot Victoria though... Oops.
+1
level 34
Jun 29, 2016
Certainly surprised Matilda wasn't there, and I tried Jane too. Jane is generally excluded because she didn't even want to be queen.
+1

Matilda should have been crowned queen. Stephen was a usurper.

level 63
Mar 30, 2018
Jane was only de facto queen for nine days - and she was never crowned, though she was officially proclaimed as queen which just adds to the confusion.

I've now been to every Black Sea country. That and US time zones were the easiest categories for me.

Why single out Cornwall?

Jun 29, 2016
Yes, it was. Why are you not saying the same for Brittany and Isle of Man? Or any of them for that matter.

level 65

Maybe you should change the category to "American/US space shuttles" - Soviet Union has also had a space shuttle program and "Buran" (model 1.01) has completed a successful space mission.

The whole of Britain was a Celtic Nation including England. Made up of many different tribes. Those nations given in this quiz are only the last remaining groups of Celtic Tribes in Britain and Northern France. To name just a few of the large tribes in England: The Brigantes (Northern England), Ancalites (Wiltshire/Hampshire), Bibroci (Berkshire), Parisii (Yorkshire), Cantiaci (Kent named after them), Carveti, (Cumberland), and many, many others. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/11483608/The-secret-history-of-Britain-is-written-in-our-genes.html

Ireland (Republic of) is not part of Britain!! Also, Galicia in northern Spain is considered a Celtic nation.

It is based on where a Celtic language is still spoken today, eg. Wales - Welsh, Isle of Man - Manx, Brittany - Breton etc.
