I believe that were grammatically appropriate, the word "a" or "an" should be acceptable, such as half a dollar, half an hour, etc.

Actually the award goes to you. Your the one that is nitpicking, implying there is something wrong with his comment (and you wouldnt get that reward if it was your first time, but you put it on nearly every quiz, that would be nitpicking to me, making a big deal out of simple remarks of people, over and over, without any good reason)

He didnt demand the displayed answer to be changed or that quizmaster is so wrong. He simply requested something to be accepted, and not even an obscure alternate answer, like "well there is this little village where that doesnt apply, eventhough it is the case for the rest of the world technically it is not correct.

It's actually a fault with the quiz that it won't accept the grammatically-correct form that everyone uses, and only accepts it if you miss out the 'a'.

seems pretty nitpicky to me, especially since you don't need to type "half" at all, just type dollar, gallon etc. your wasting your own time

Good quiz; I think the half dozen clue could even be simply "Six."

There is a saying that says "six of one, half dozen of the other. It's based off that.

I've only ever heard it as 'six of one, half a dozen of the other', and the quiz didn't accept that. 'Half dozen' doesn't even sound grammatically correct.

'Half a dozen' should also work for 'half dozen.'

I agree. I've NEVER heard it "half dozen", always "half a dozen." I think its a regional thing. I'm Australian.

I've only heard it (and said it, many times) as "half dozen." But then, we Americans like to shorten things whenever possible. :D

I've heard spouse referred to as "other half" before. More commonly "better half," but not exclusively. Must be people who only kind of like their spouse that call them "other half." :P

It just looks like a big rock to me. Never been there, never seen it, never heard of it. So, I missed it; despite the picture.

I've heard of Yosemite, but you gotta remember: America DOESNT = the World. Should I be expecting you to guess the name of an obscure Australian item just because it's the picture of a jetpunk quiz?

You mean, Uluru AKA Ayers Rock? Yeah, I think that's reasonable. Half Dome is an iconic natural landmark in Yosemite, arguably the US's most famous national park. Its strange shape makes it very recognizable and is a mecca in the sport of rock climbing. If that doesn't sway you, here's the Australian "60 Minutes" airing a feature cover story on Alex Honnold free soloing Half Dome. All that said, if you don't like something, rate the quiz and make a better one if you're so certain about what does and doesn't belong.

I don't think the Super Bowl is the only sporting event to have a half time. In fact, every single American football, football (soccer), rugby union, rugby league, hockey, ice hockey, and I suppose basketball and netball game have a half time (those are all the ones I think of). I think the clue for 'half-time' should be changed to something like 'Intermission in a sports match'. Not that exactly, but that was off the cuff.

Hockey does not have a half time, there are 3 periods with a break between each one. there is no stoppage exactly halfway through the game

Centre half is a football position. Note spelling of "centre".

Yep. Quiz should probably specify that it's American football. In football/soccer, a central defender (near the goalkeeper) is called centre-back or centre-half.

Could you also include metric measurements in the question, as most of the world has moved on from imperial.
