How about "inactive" or "immobile"?

Thanks for that, I wouldn't have thought of "idle". To me that is just a computer or computer process that doesn't do anything at the moment. Or you idle when you stop chatting for a bit. Started with "insolent" and then had this vibe and tried again and got it. I am also sure that I wrote something like "indigenous" but must've spelled it totally wrong.

Not really. Invincible means no-one can defeat you.

Thought of many words for "lazy, slothful" but not the ones listed! Inept, incompetent, incapable, impossible, irresponsible....but technically those all have slightly different meanings, of course.

I tried irksome, I know it wasn't it but I liked the word and well it sort of suits ;)

It would be a nice addition ( though tons of interesting words to choose from ofcourse.) Irksome :)

This quiz was fun, but for some reason for "ignorant", I guessed every word I could think of starting with I except for ignorant. I even tried "ill-informed", to no avail. Gah >_

"Subdivision" is such an odd way to describe an inning. I was thinking of an area of the field, not how the games are partitioned.

Perhaps incombustible for non-reactive in chemistry?

For inert I would have made the clue, type of gas or something like that. Atleast I would have gotten it then, case I only know the term inert in combiantion with gas. But I am sure there would be someone else making a comment about it then ;)

how about "interest" for monetary earnings? I also thought about "intensive care" for hospital within a hospital. Nice quiz tho'.

Invulnerable means that you're "incapable of being wounded, hurt, or damaged," which implies that you're not capable of dying. I'm embarrassed to say I was so hung up on this as being the correct answer that I overlooked the obvious, immortal. Just saying.

How about "inoculated" for not vulnerable to a disease?
+1
level 38
Nov 24, 2017
Inoculated is not correct because you can be inoculated against the flu and still get a weakened form of the malady. Immune means that you cannot get the disease (sometimes because you've already had it and at other times because you are naturally immune to it).

I think 'icon' fits the clue at least as well as 'idol' - could you add that please?

Ca you please change the wording of immortal. Immortal means can't die of natural causes, like a vampire, but can still be killed. Invinsible means can't be killed.

Immortal = Lasts or lives forever (Oxford Dictionary) Invincible (note spelling) = Too powerful to be defeated or overcome PS There are no such beings as Vampires that cannot die of natural causes, a person can drink blood if they wish to do so but will have no special powers (apart from a strong stomach)

Hey, QM, have you ever thought of preparing a quiz where every word in every language regardless of how it has been spelled is a correct answer to every clue in the quiz? Maybe that way everyone would be happy. Like "schnozzle wall" is acceptable for septum or twinkle butt is okay for firefly???

Please can ice house (or icehouse) be included as an alternate answer to the predecessor to the refrigerator question? Both the ice house and the icebox were non-electric methods used to keep food fresh, with the icebox being a smaller version of the house.

Yea I have only heard it meantioned on american shows with kids needing to go to the school nurse.

We never had that here, in fact we don't have school nurses, not in elementary or middle/high school
