it is the same now. Maybe he was in the news around the time of your post. Or maybe people have taken more quizzes on jetpunk since. Because jutland is an answer quite often. One of those things if you didnt know it before, you will now.

Jean is french for John (they come from Johannes). Jacques is french for James (they both come from Jacomus I think). Jack and Jacques are what we call "false friends".

But it accepts things like "Junea" for Juneau and "Jekyl" for Jekyl, so Janice is reasonable.

Again, giving in to idiocy. Janis Joplin is not Janice Joplin, any more than Kuala Lumpur is Kuala Lampur (which, by the way,,this quiz does not accept).

By this logic, Janet Joplin should be accepted, too.

Idiocy, really? Janis and Janice sound exactly the same. Lumpur and Lampur don't. Give the man a break...

what crusher said, if it is a logical spelling and it sounds nearly exactly the same ( your examples do not come close) it is reasonable to accept. Unless it is words you see written al over the place. In which case you can be more firm and expect a better spelling.

For example, ingland might sound like england.. but should not be accepted because it is a word you come across written very often.

"Islamic "struggle", not always holy war". Thank you! Too bad Estonian media still calls jihadists "holy fighters", even when the jihadists are killing other Muslims.

Jul 29, 2015
If they're killing other Muslims it's because they believe that those Muslims are not true Muslims, or that there is some other religious basis for doing so.

Good point, kthiesen. Schlomo, have you got a better argument than "just go away please" to offer? I had a read of this article, and am interested to see that not one country outside of Israel recognises Jerusalem as the capital. I'm inclined to go with Jerusalem as the capital because I think a country ought to be able to name where its capital is! but I hadn't realised that the UN Security Council has declared Israel's occupation of the city to be null and void. A tricky one.

Thanks for the clarification, Jerry928. Israel, like several other UN members, takes a very cherry-picking and often hypocritical interpretation of UN resolutions, but this question has no place in a supposedly objective quiz, however trivial (which this point isn't). Sorry, Schlomohoward, but the days of the world at large "just going away" are over.

I don't believe any country officially recognises Tel Aviv as the capital either. What's disputed is whether Israel has a capital at all, not which city is the capital.
+1
level 73
Jun 25, 2017
Yeah. Tel Aviv is not the capital in any case. It's clear that Israel declared J. as the capital, and that UN doesn't recognize it as Israeli. If you take it that it means J. can't be the capital, you can't just decide on another city.

There's no way that non-Americans (and even then!) would recognize "Dubya" as a shorthand for George W. Bush. There's just no way, right????

Not an american and I knew. Not sure where I got it from though. You hear stuff, just like you hear 'murica.

For explanation, it stands for double u (his middle initial "w"). If you say it fast/with an exagerated accent you get dubya

I didnt know that. I indeed found it sounding rather "country" like peggy-sue or something. I have no idea what you mean by status quo family though. I do know how status quo is normally used though.
