My Latin teacher, Miss Rosebrook, would say "It is very odd to spell Odyssey with two 'd's and it makes me ill when I see the Iliad with two 'l's."

It's called the Wiphala. It's a flag that represents the original people of the former Inca Empire. It's also a secondary flag of Bolivia.

Would be enduring grateful if you could make carpel acceptable for pistil, or even accept gynoecium, since carpel is the basic unit and gynoecium is the overall apparatus, merci :-)

Yes, a flower can have one or more carpels, Pistil is just the collective term for the Carpel/s.

Why is it Phobos much more known than Deimos? I mean, the percentages should be about equal, shouldn't they? Maybe it is because of the spelling, I found myself trying Deymos to work
+1

Dec 14, 2018
I tried about 10 moons but none of them belonged to mars... but I think phobos might be higher because it reminds of phobia. And deimos is not as easily relatable.

Do you mean the screwdriver question? If so, then accepting orange or oranges is simply wrong: you don't make a screwdriver by dropping segments of an orange into some vodka!

I'm not sure if I wouldn't include Sun Tzu as one of the most influential philosophers. Not a traditional philsopher, true, but his philosophy of war has been influential for thousands of years and has shaped the world in many ways and is taught and studied to this day.

I had never heard of the tale of two cities..... BUT SOMEHOW, I read biblical cities as British cities, guessed London and thought the other must be near by so guessed Paris. I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT.

I thought of barrista haha, knew it wasn't that but something like it. Couldn't get the right word. Same with Sucre, tried sucra even Sucry. Also stem and stam for seamen (stamper in dutch, so the word is close, but still different, not just anglicised like usual. (Like straat becomes street, huis becomes house etc)).

But the odyssey one bothers me. I wrote odyssee. I know it is an English quiz but it is like an international word. And most countries write it without an y (usually an -ee sound or -ea). And you pronounce it like -see right? Not -say (and it is odyssEUS not odyssEYUS ;) )
