Definitely thought the "Achilles" was supposed to be "ankle".

Right. I thought ankle and anatomy.

I wasted a good many seconds racking my brain for the identity of the person in the 11th picture!

A kimbo? Doesn't look like Kimbo Slice. Oh, the stance, gotcha.

Agree, especially because it comes right after the pic of Adele, my mind was kind of set on finding the identity of the person rather than the pose the pic was suggesting.

Perhaps a diagram would better convey what was needed.

LMAO I wasn't sure who it was supposed to be either, thought they were looking for someone whose name started with an A haha

Just chop her head off (the picture, not the girl).

It could just help to have "Arms ______" under the picture, to indicate it's something to do with the stance, rather than the person.

Yeah, that clue needs reworked. Not really sure it works, or that it is the best choice but hey, maybe the QM wanted a question no one would get!

Yeah, I think that one is too sneaky. I assumed it was someone I'd never heard of but I still went through all the A names I could of - Adams, Aniston, Arquette, etc.

I still don't get it. Who's akimbo?
+1

Akimbo is that stance, with the arms spread and the hands on the waist.

Did the same thing - was running through every 70's celebrity I could think of.

Those drinks look ALCOHOLIC. And that nondescript figure looks like an ANDROID.

Who? The accordion player? I mean, sure, he looks a bit stiff, but not that bad.

the drinks they actually burn off most of the alcohol.

Maybe accept "aperitif" for the drink?
+1

Mar 9, 2018
Or "aquavit"?

Aqueduct is supposed to go over water...
+4
level 73
Mar 9, 2018
That's the Pont du Gard, and not only did it once carry water, but it also goes over the River Gardon (which isn't visible in the picture).

It's pretty much the most well-known and best-preserved Roman aqueduct in the world... I don't think there is a better picture the Quizmaster could have found for the word.
+2
level 65
May 12, 2018
An aqueduct is to carry water, not necessarily over water, but from source to usage, it may have to cross rivers or valleys on it's journey.

An aqueduct carries water
+4
level 69
Mar 9, 2018
It does. But do you actually need to see the water to guess the word, when the picture is of the most well-known Roman aqueduct in the world?

My first guess on the glasses was "abracadabra".

With the spoon (absinthe spoon) and the setup it should be clear what the expected answer. Not alcohol, not aperitif.

No clue what Adele looks like but by God I know akimbo when I see it.

Never heard of this akimbo chick!

I learnt "akimbo" from AbFab. Patsy said "bovine udders akimbo" and better not visualise like I did after checking the dictionary ...

Never heard of the 'Adele' woman.

Adele is famous because she was named for some penguins. Oh wait -- that's Adelie penguins.

Aurora Borealis... At this time of year? At this time of day? In this part of the internet? Localized entirely within your quiz?

I know usually quizzes go by surname, but considering that the name of the person pictured for the ayatollah clue is Ali Khamenei, that should probably at least be accepted as a write in.

It would be nice if "arms akimbo" worked since that's the expression.

I could not spell "Ayatollah" for the life of me.
