Meme is a great word and the definition as originally described by Richard Dawkins is also fantastic and fascinating with big implications for things like society and religion. I thought up the same concept a long time ago and was very disappointed to find out that someone else had come up with it before me by about 20 years. What's horrible is the way that the word and concept have been misused by the public to mean "stupid badly photoshopped picture I send around to all my friends on Facebook."

I'm not sure I know what you're talking about - all I know is the dictionary definition - but it is a bit confusing to me. In the true meaning of the word, how is a meme different from a tradition? Please educate me, wise one. :)

I read The Selfish Gene which included a chapter or 2 on memes towards the end, might have even been the first time that Dawkins wrote about them but I'm not sure. It was a long time ago though and it's all a bit vague to me. I may read it again soon, it was a very interesting book

Where I go for salah we don't call it a mosque we call is a masjid. Can quizmaker change for future reference? I mean I think its no big deal, anyone could just realize its a mosque but I think it should work.

1/1000th of a millimeter is a micrometer. The term "micron" was officially revoked by the SI in 1967. "Micron" should be an acceptable answer, but it shouldn't be the official answer.

So... according to the comments above I guess I'm the only one who tried five different spellings of Mecca before looking at the picture and going "Oh... right. Duh." For those of you wondering, I tried: Mecca, Meca, Mecah, Meccah, and Makkah. For those of you not wondering, I also tried vegemite once. Love that stuff, even if it has nothing to do with this quiz.

"Propagates" is misspelt.

"Micrometer" should be shown as the main answer, despite micron still being widely used (in English): The term micron and the symbol μ were officially accepted for use in isolation to denote the micrometre in 1879, but officially revoked by the International System of Units (SI) in 1967.

Strictly speaking, "soliloquy" isn't the definition of "monologue." Soliloquy is one type of monologue. A monologue is any long speech given by one person, real or fictional. A soliloquy is a dramatic device used in plays in which a character speaks aloud *with no other characters present.* A monologue may have other characters present or not.
