Had to laugh at myself just now -- drew a blank on "The Taekwondo Child" and stopped to think. I looked up at the TV and realized, "Hey, that's what I'm watching right now!" Probably wouldn't have gotten it otherwise...

I left my own comment before I saw this one.......Yes, I looked up synonyms of "amazing" and did not find "great" listed.......

Taekwondo isn't Karate but you know that.

By the way, one of the most interesting quiz series here on JetPunk :-)

Love these. Got 100%. Did this one come after my Movie Title Antonyms quiz? A few of the answers are the same.

Just checked. I made this quiz on May 9, so mine was first. I have used some of your quiz questions in the past though. If I do, I'll usually throw in a credit.

Taekwondo is not a synonym for karate. Yes, people will get the hint, but it's like saying an orange is a synonym for an apple. It's wrong.

Had to look up Dryasdust. It sounded like something to do with dryads or at least had some sort of fantasy feel to. Unfortunately, it was dry-as-dust... man.... disappointed..

And also @someone, do you mean walking encyclopedia? (again, I didnt spot it first and though, hm what is waling...) or did you mean wailing?

This quiz was good but I am not happy about the comparison of TKD and Karate; they are pretty different: TKD is Korean and karate is not, different influences entirely. Maybe 'Martial art child' would be better.

Fully agree they are NOT synonyms.

They are different for sure and not synonyms at all. However, I do think they're both influenced by Chinese martial arts.

Sad how few people know Cathay is a long-standing name for China.

Maybe Kurt Russell's and Keye Luke's Large Problem in Small Cathay has been seen by everyone who's ever owned a TV at this point and would've clicked better.

Is it possible to change offspring to offsprings, since children is plural of child?
