I thought rattler too for rattlesnake. But I really thought "redeemer" for the christ statue above Rio.

Pittsburg is accepted but Rembrand isn't? Also I have to start thinking in French every time when rulette doesn't work ...

"Rulette" should never work. Yes, it's French but it's also English. Roulette is a cognate which means that it's also the proper word in English.

There are a TON!! of cognates in the English language.

When you put on a pair khakis you wouldn't say that you have to think in Tamil. Or you don't have to think in Inuit when you paddle a kayak.

Lol this is the 7th of these alphabet quizzes where I get 15/16 super fast and then hit a wall for the 16th. This time I was digging through my brain trying to think what the hell this kind of specific type of Roman soldier might be called... but I never thought of simply trying "Roman". I think I'm past my bedtime.

What about Rubicon for the "Roman"? Caesar was a Roman and he crossed the Rubicon River. It's not clear in the picture but it just shows a Roman Soldier by water...Rubicon could fit.

Hmm, that's a thought, but I don't really think it would fit. You make the point that he is standing next to water that could be the Rubicon, but the picture makes it seem pretty clear that it is a huge body of water, such as an ocean, sea, or very large lake. And although we say that the Rubicon is a river, in reality it is more of a stream. At least currently it is. Maybe back then it was bigger, but there isn't any evidence to suggest that.

I know that alternate spellings are there for a reason, but completely truncating a word? The inkblot test was created by Hermann Rorschach, hence the name of the test. Why on earth is Rorsch enough to get credit?
