Props for accepting Gitmo. Tried it as a joke.

Seconded. I knew I was going to botch Guantanamo, so tried Gitmo before resigning myself to trying the longer version.

I didn't expect it to accept Gitmo, but thought I'd try it first as it would be faster. Saved me some time.

This may be pedantic, so sorry in advance. Guantanamo isn't a prison - it's a city, a province, and the name of a bay near the city, in the south of Cuba. Geopolitically, perhaps, the prison at the naval base on the bay may be more important than the city, the province, and the bay, but people on this site are often savvy enough to know the difference between a thing-in-itself and an appropriation. The famous song "Guantanamera," for example, is about a woman from the city and has nothing to do with anyone's naval base or prison.

It is pedantic. When someone says "Guantanamo" in the news today, they are referring to the prison. It used to be about the military base, but now it's about the prison. If someone were to mention the bay, the town, or the province, they would say the town of..., or Guantanamo province, or Guantanamo Bay (and even that last one wouldn't be clear without context.)

I reiterate that it may be pedantic, but when Cubans speak about Guantanamo (and they're part of "someone" too?), they mean one of the places I mentioned, unless they specify the base or the prison.

Please, don't bother - I don't know about the films, they may be good, but the books are incredibly boring, wish I had the time I spent reading them back

I loved the Hobbit (the book - again, I haven't seen the film), but LOTR was just so slow and boring - everything was so grandiose and for some reason had to be described in excruciating detail.

I guess that part of why I didn't enjoy it is that a lot of what Tolkein introduced has now been done so many times by so many other authors (+films, computer games, etc) that it felt like there was nothing new there for me even though it came first.

But props to Tolkein for pretty much creating the standard lore which is used so much in the genre (unless there were others who I don't know about who standardised what orcs, wights, etc were before him?)

No, it's part of Syria, but occupied by Israel. The fact that Israel has declared it part of its territory doesn't mean that it is, it just means Israel has zero respect for international law.

What are the non-adult answers? Are they the ones about the 20-year-old book series, the 35-year-old cartoon, the 40-year-dead teen idol, the 50-year-old sitcom, or the 79-year-old comic book character?

Aragorn is the heir of Isildur and rightful claimant to the thrones of Arnor and Gondor.

But when he is crowned his name is Elessar ... So, "Aragorn" never "ruled" Gondor. ;)

You quiz makers have an abhorrence of allowing us to complete words ending in "h" don't you; in this case "Gomorrah".
