Agreed, what is called a 'gazebo' here would more often than not be called a bandstand in the UK, like that seen in many parks.

Dear Quizmaster - It would be helpful if you included something else in the picture of the coffee filter to indicate the scale. Thanks!

I think cupcake liners have sharper folds. Also especially on the left side that filter looks floppier than a cupcake liner is. The liners I know look like they'll hold the shape better.

It would be really appreciated if you could replace the foam hand image with one that doesn't target Indigenous peoples. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleveland_Indians_name_and_logo_controversy

Oh my goodness, I'm of Cherokee descent and am not offended that a baseball team is named the Indians. They are a group of people working together for the good of all in the "tribe". It's a sign that whites recognized and appreciated that trait in the native people even if they didn't treat us very fairly. In all honesty, I'm a little more concerned about "redsplat" than I am about a piece of foam rubber - just sayin...

In Germany we jokingly call them Klammeraffe (German word for spider monkey). A "Klammer" is a clip, staple, bracket... ("Affe" = monkey) and to "klammern" means holding on tightly to somebody or something (which a monkey does to a tree or whatever), so in this case the staple holding on to the paper. As you may have noticed this probably describes a stapler better than the object but for some reason they both can be called that... Don't ask for the logic. Just a little fun fact.

I tried it and it wasn't accepted, although I did check the spelling online and it showed it spelt with two "F's" and two "T's". I have no idea which is correct, but possibly a bit more leeway on the spelling.

The coffee filter alos looks like a cupcake holder to me, but a lot seem to have the same issue.

One f and one t since it comes from French. It normally has a grave accent : cafetière. It's a false friend actually, what we call "cafetière" in French is a coffee pot. And, anyway, the only time that I saw this thing used to make coffee is by a Swedish man in Pisa ^^.

Does anyone else call a wifi router a modem?
+1
Level 62
Jun 15, 2018
A wifi router is not the same thing as a modem, though they are sometimes combined into the same device. I have modem that the cable connects to and a router that handles the traffic of multiple devices, which a modem can't do.
+1
Level 53
Jun 15, 2018
They are two different machines. The modem is the machine that connects the router to the network, and the router is the machine that broadcasts and receives WiFi. Anyone with a wired internet connection is using a modem, but only those with WiFi are using a router. (At least I think that's how it all works.)
+1
Level 76
Jun 15, 2018
Close. You could also be using a router that is not wireless, just routing to different machines. The one in the picture is the classic lynksys wireless G router.
+1
Level 67
Dec 14, 2018
I might be getting you wrong but the way you word it seems to be the wrong way around. In short, your router creates a network between the computers in your home, while your modem connects that network—and thus the computers on it—to the internet. (though nowadays they are often combined into one)

Yep - and at least in my (limited) experience most consumer routers in Australia are also modems.

@Arp2600exactly, that is what a coffeefilter looks like to me

@ctleng76 it looks nothing like a coffeefilter to me, after knowing the answer, with a bit of imagination I can see it, but seems way too shallow and floppy. But I guess they use it as a coffeefilter somewhere atleast ;)

There are tons of people who have never made their own coffee before, or never consumed coffee before, or made it some way other than by using a filter that looked like that. Very few people today have never seen a computer (including 0% of the people at this website).

In the UK, that is a gazebo. I am in the UK, and I know what a gazebo is. It does look rather like a small bandstand though, so flexibility on that point wouldn't seem too lenient.
