Can you add varieties to Hezbollah? I tried "Hizbollah" and while it's not especially mentioned on wikipedia, there are those starting with Hiz- and it says etc.

Hizballah should certainly be allowed, by why Hizbollah? If you can't figure out that the "party of God" has the name "Allah" in it, I don't think you should be getting points.

I got the answer right, but I never knew that it was known as the "party of God" or made the connection between Hezbollah/Allah.

Hezbollah/Hizbollah is definitely correct. That's how it's pronounced in Arabic. Yes the second part of the name means God but it doesn't have to be -allah. Sometimes vowels in Arabic change based on the scentence.

^ yeah. Vowels are very unimportant in Arabic. But transliterated to English I've never seen the group spelled Hizballah... always Hezbollah or, more recently, Hizbollah.

It's not Ayers Rock by another name - clue should read Ayers Rock by official name. No one with any respect for the indigenous nations calls it Ayers Rock any more (only the airport is named that, these days).

first rainbarrel (literal translation of what we call the thing you can put at the end/under a rainpipe to collect the rainwater) then river. But ended up getting it. Not sure I am fond of the clue though.

I think this could be more interesting of the letters were not given, just the information that the answers begin and end with the same letter. Although then the answers should be a little easier, otherwise the quiz would be very difficult.
