All this time I thought it was a doorjam. I had no idea there was a "b" stuck on the end. I love when I learn something new from a quiz that I thought I already knew. Thanks QM!

I couldn't spell joule. I hate it when I know it but just can't spell it. Jool? Joole? Joul? I gave up too soon thinking that must not be the word.

I'm not sure where we're supposed to post our opinions on the new look, so I'll make my comments here. Regarding the new look, I have no problem with any of the changes except the "start quiz" button. It will take time to get used to it, but I'll eventually stop typing madly as soon as the screen changes. My real problem with it, is it gives the cheaters an easy way to look up all the answers before they even begin the quiz. I suspect the stats will really be skewed now.

Nice quiz! I just wanted to point out that "jihad", literally, means "struggle". It does not mean "holy war" nor does it mean "internal struggle". The latter meanings are derived only when "jihad" is used in a sentence, not on its own.

I think that hex is American slang, so a different clue would be helpful. Like others, I've never heard of John used in that context. Maybe more American slang?
