Also accept carriage? (especially as a caboose is a US-only term)

Yeah, that one confused the hell out of me. Do Americans say carriage?

Only if they're referring to a vintage horse-drawn vehicle...

Or, you could just click on the image, click on the link to see the attribution, and the answer will be displayed in the url. This is an unfortunate side-effect of these quizzes that draw images from wikimedia commons.

only if you want to click two or three times, which has to be fairly deliberate; not much different to doing the quiz twice, the first time just to show you the answers

Wait a second. The British equivalent word seems to be "brake van". This is the carriage at the end of the train.
+5
Level 76
May 26, 2018
still a carriage then?
+1
Level 46
May 26, 2018
No, because Americans call them cars. The last car is the caboose. "Carriage" we only use if we're referring to either a pram ("baby carriage") or an open, wheeled, usually horse-drawn vehicle. The first automobiles were sometimes referred to as "horseless carriages" as well. But that's as far as Americans go with that word.

Really should be some caveat to this as even if it does contain crew or whatever it still is a carraige!!!

And it's still a car (letter C) in the U.S., but most obviously a very specific one out of 300 other cars in the train.

Not the same thing, there is only one cupid and apparently the heavens are littered with cherubs since they are in so many paintings.

besides might get kinda awkward if zeus and god show up in the same place

Is the "canyon" one from the Grand Canyon? If so, you should probably accept Colorado.

Since it is on a plate it is obvious that it is some type of food, but to me it looks like cheese straws - also delicious.

I know churros but these look nothing like any churros I've had. Yes, delicious. But these looked like curly fries to me.

Never heard of churro either, but I'm with Pooch - to this southern lady those looked like cheese straws - or to make it fit the quiz, "cheesestraws". :)

The image depicted is not 'a compass', but 'a pair of compasses'.

I therefore believe that 'compasses' should be the answer shown.

I totally agree - you can't draw a circle with a compass, and a pair of compasses won't point north, because they're two different things.

I kept trying 'courage' for the lion, because that's what he wanted.

And I tried "costume". I knew from where the pic is, but I couldn't connect it a with a c-word.

Yup, courage, costume, gave up. Coward makes sense though.

I feel like 'cava' should be accepted for champagne as well, it's a pretty common sparkling wine type also served in flutes

that, and also probably crémant, an effervescent wine from different regions of france (crémant de bourgogne, crémant d'alsace, crémant de loire, etc, etc)

Level 85
Mar 10, 2018

It's not the official flag, that would be the 'senyera', consisting only on the red and yellow bars without the blue triangle and the star. The one depicted here is called 'estelada' and was invented in the early 20th century to represent the separatist movement. There are alternative versions, like the used by leftists groups with a red star over a yellow triangle. You can read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estelada
