Nestle also sells a hazelnut chocolate spread (although probably it's not as known or delcious as Nutella). Still, I would add "Italian" to the description.

? there are millions of brands (well thousands..) selling hazelnut spread, and yes some of them are just as good as nutella, but nutella is the most famous one especially in america (here I think it would be duo penotti)> In my store alone there are 40 brands, and is isnt some kind of megastore, just a humble supermarket/grocery store in a village, not even a town. Each store has their own assortment of hazelnut spreads, too much to chose from but I think generally they all have nutella and duo penotti (now, cant remember if nutella was available everywhere when I was younger, maybe just in the bigger more expensive stores but it was known here because I remember the commercials)

My point was with the uncountable number of brands that sell hazelnut spread, there are bound to be loads of them starting with. "N" there arent just 2 brands ;)

At first I read "Greek goddess of athletic apparel". Thought "Hm, maybe that's how St. Hubbins, patron saint of quality footwear, was derived".

Yea, I didn't pay much attention to the year or the distinction between province/territory, assumed it would be a more recent addition, and tried to spell Nunavut about 15 different ways before realizing and correcting the err of my ways.

Since when is the Nile the longest river in the World?

Depending on who you ask, either the Nile or the Amazon is the longest river in the world: there is no concensus. But this is an 'n' quiz so...

In the U.S.'s two-party system, in theory the election boils down to two candidates in opposition, meaning that the one who's least objectionable to most people will win, because there is (essentially) no other choice than their opponent.

A popular third-party or independent opponent (classic examples include Ralph Nader and H. Ross Perot) may split the vote for one of the candidates more than the other, resulting in a loss for what would otherwise have been the winner, thus "spoiling" the result.

I think this question doesn't appear on the quiz anymore (I'm guessing it was about Nader) and of course whether the stability of the two-party system is good or bad or how much of it is de jure and de facto is subject to vigorous debate. But that's my understanding.

Haneda??

Maybe add "international" to the question. Haneda is considerably busier than the answer, mainly due to handling about 90% of domestic flights. (according to Google anyway)

Well, it's still not quite right, Haneda is certainly an international airport and certainly busier than Narita. Maybe a better phrasing would be "Busiest airport in Japan by international passenger traffic" or "Airport with most international arrivals", source. Or just make it "Major international airport near Tokyo" or something like that, and trust the user to suss out the 'N' answer.

I've always heard the story that Newton was actually struck by the apple, not just a passive observer to its fall.

I read Asian not AsLan. I spent a good minute trying to figure out if there was a country or famous region in Asia with lions beginning with an "N". Tried Negev and after that I was out of ideas.
