Answers are in alphabetical order unless there's a logical reason ("Vera, Chuck and Dave" in the lyrics, order of the books in the LOTR, order of Henry VIII's wives, etc.), but I can't come up with one for "Countries that Start With H", "Types of Rocks", or "Regions of Belgium". For the latter, they aren't in order of area, population, or even north-to-south. It's not a big deal; just pointing it out.

Might clarify that macronutrients are the human ones. As a gardener, the first thing I thought of when I read macronutrients was the 3 primary ingredients in every fertilizer - N, P, and K. These are also called macronutrients in gardening.

Those are the first ones I tried, too, and couldn't figure out why they weren't accepted. Then I thought of the macrobiotic diet which somehow led me to thinking of the human diet and I finally got them.

That macroneutriens clue through me totally. I've not heard that term before. Ditto the first Triumvirate of Rome or France's three estates.

Shouldn't "Bourgeoisie" be accepted as an alternative for France's Third Estate?

Level 88

I really don't think so. The people are the proletariat--the working class, including farmers and low-skilled factory workers, The bourgeoisie are the wealthy capitalists who own the means of production.

Actually, in that time, the "people" were everyone who wasn't either an aristocrat or a member of the clergy, so the "third estate" ecompassed both the bourgeoisie, the peasantry, the low-skilled workers (though not many factory-workers, in the 1700s...).

Reassuring to know that the takers of this quiz still know more about the Simpsons than they do about Geography, History, Anatomy or Biology (though not about Nuclear Physics, it would seem).

I think "Children of Adam & Eve" should be changed to "Sons of Adam & Eve", as many sources name their daughters.
+1
Level 65

I have never seen their daughters named in a canonical source. I always learned that Cain, Abel, and Seth are their *named* children. It is mentioned that they had other children (both sons and daughters), but I don't think the others are named.

That's kind of mean not to give some of your children names. I mean, how do you call them? "Hey, you!"?

The bourgeoisie isn't an estate (which implies a mediaeval societal structure), but more like a class, making it a precursor to the modern class structure. It was born in the late Middle Age, though it didn't fit nicely within it; which serves to show that abstract divisions tend to ignore the fluidity of human historical developments. That doesn't mean divisions and labels aren't valid, though; estates and classes are not the same thing.

I am usually one to defend the need for proper spelling, but damn it – I really struggled with Bloemfontein! I got the Bloem- part okay, but then never got past thinking the e in "-fontein" should be an a: -fontaine, -fontain… ARGH!

You're not too far off. Fontein = fontain. Just a different language. ;) Bloemfontein is a fountain of flowers.

WTF is that grandchildren on the knee question? I have absolutely no idea what that's about, usually seeing the answer is enlightening, but not in this case. Is it a song?
