One question actually made me laugh out loud a little, because for "What country is also known as Burma?", "Burma" was an acceptable answer.

"What country's capital is Ulan Bator?" Can we please standardize on one spelling for Ulaanbaatar on this site? Since JetPunk uses Wikipedia a lot, and that site says, "Ulaanbaatar, formerly anglicised as Ulan Bator..." it seems the answer should be displayed as 'Ulaanbaatar' and accept 'Ulan Bator' as a typein. Not the other way around.

RE: What country is often associated with the color orange, despite having a flag of red, white, and blue?
"Me father he was orange and me mother she was green." The Irish flag has green for Ireland, orange for mainly British Protestants in Northern Ireland. The U.K. has a red, white and blue flag.
I know that's not a totally accurate account of the tricolor, but it is a way that it is thought of.
And no, I'm not pushing for the answer to be modified. It actually all ties back to the same dude.

Not sure what you're getting at, but isn't Ireland mostly associated with the color green? And what does it matter what colors the UK flag has? It's not Ireland's flag. Aside from that, I think the clue is quite transparent, and hardly anyone with some knowledge of country flags and icons, or international sports will miss it.

I think they were implying that the UK could be an acceptable answer? As Northern Ireland (part of the UK, flag of red, white, and blue) is associated with the colour orange.

Whatever you are getting at, you are wrong. Ireland is not part of the UK. There is no red anywhere in its flag and it is not principally associated with orange. The "orange" Protestants in Ireland are a distinct minority, which is why most people associate the green of the Catholics with Ireland. the The answer is obviously the Netherlands. Stop being dense.

I think that's more than a trifle harsh, and very rude - they are not being dense, but making a valid/interesting point, whilst not asking for any changes or expecting that it *should* be the answer. Part of Ireland IS part of the UK. Protestants are (I believe) the majority in *that* part of Ireland. Remember, Ireland is an island (too), but that's largely irrelevant to the point made - protestants in Northern Ireland are associated with orange, and their nation's flag is red, white and blue. Admittedly, stretching it to a country being associated with orange is a bit much, but that doesn't excuse your comments

Sure it does. He is intentionally missing the point so he can nitpick. Northern Ireland is part of the island, but not part of the country Ireland. It does not use the green/white/orange tricolor flag. They are separate countries. The answer is obviously Netherlands. People are so often demanding special answers and exceptions, but they're really just trying to show everyone how pedantic they can be. The answer is the Netherlands, and the poster's comment suggests he is educated enough to know that. He is being dense.

The plural of 'cactus' is 'cacti' The same way the plural of the word 'metaphor' is 'metaphors' and not 'metaphorai' (as in Greek) It's an English word, regardless of its origins, so its plural should be in English.

Your argument does not seem to make much sense to me. you compare two things that have followed different paths, so it is a better argumetn agáinst your case than for it (still not really clear what your case is..).

Yes they are both currently words in english and yes they have been borrowed (via latin from greek). But -i is not a normal english plural, that one still maintains the original latin plural. While metaphor does take the english plural otherwise it would be metaphorae. If you had replaced cacti for cactuses in your argument you would have a much better case. Still wobbly though.

"the same way" really doesnt fly here, quite the opposite.
