I kept trying 'full fat' for the milk one- good quiz harder than I thought it would be

Level 79
Jul 5, 2013
Half, Quarter could also be followed by Dime (US coins)

Except for the fact that half coins have been out of general circulation for a long time now...

skim, 1%, 2%, whole?

Level 78
Jul 6, 2013
In Canada its: Skim, 2%, Homo (short for homogenized)

That's just weird as "homogenized" means the fat particles have been broken down to small ones, so the fat disperses in the milk and doesn't float up. Even 2% milk has fat in it and is homogenized usually.

Homogenized was milk that didn't have the cream floating on top. It came before any of the lower fat milk. Back in the day we drank low fat milk because dad scooped the cream off the top for his coffee.

For "Once, Twice..." I totally tried "three times a lady". :D

I think I have seen 3 and 4% fat milk too, maybe I'm thinking of cottage cheese.

its alpha beta and omega.. not gamma

Level 83
Oct 22, 2014
No it's not. Alpha, beta, gamma, delta, epsilon...Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet.

Omega should be acceptable, alpha/beta/omega is sometimes used in ethology, especially in wolves to categorise animals into one of three social types (although actual wolf experts say the idea of an 'alpha wolf' in the wild is a myth).

agree with pctjunkie - gamma correct; omega incorrect

What is the significance of the Olympic Rings?

Level 21
Mar 27, 2016
I'm guessing it's because of the "bronze, silver, gold" question.

I see "homo" milk still isn't accepted and yes thats what Canadians call it.

That will work now

Mar 27, 2016
I STILL insist that you should accept Half, Quarter, Dime! It is just as legitimate a response as the given answer; it is the next in the series of US coins. Dollar, half, quarter, dime, nickel, penny.

Remarkably enough, not every human being is from America.

Level 78
Mar 28, 2016
No, but allowances are usually made for regional differences once they are pointed out, just as QM now accepts homogenized as well as whole milk, after the Canadian comments. Adding dime as an answer is a reasonable request IMO. My only issue is that it was a demand rather than a request. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar, eric29.

Level 79
Mar 28, 2016
Well I certainly am not demanding anything, other than perhaps the courtesy of a reply to a reasonable request. I first suggested half, quarter, dime almost three years ago. Since this quiz has reappeared on the front page I thought I would try again. I am not saying that the current answer is wrong; it is obviously a correct response. I was just pointing out that to an American it is not the only correct response, and each time I have taken this quiz I always think of dime first, and only get eighth after dime doesn't work. Either way, dime is a reasonable and correct answer, is not obscure or ridiculous and is worthy of inclusion. That's all I am trying to say. If I am wrong I would like to know why; otherwise what would it hurt to add dime as an alternate answer? So Quizmaster, if my request reeked of vinegar I do apologize....and do please take my suggestion under consideration. Thank you!!

I am from the US and dime was not on my radar. I bet the majority of the people would not have thought of dime, but rather eighth.

Where does the VP, VSOP pattern come from?
+1
Level 67
Mar 29, 2016
Cognac and other things where people want to indicate age and luxury. The XO stands for Extra Old.

I think I need to consider adding "XO" after my signature.

Never heard of that one, either. The rest were easy for me. Once again defeated by the fact that I don't drink.

I am incredibly proud of myself that I couldn't get the Star Sign question in the slightest. I tried to type in all the ones I could think of (which was only about 5 others) after which I gave up.

The cognac grading is incorrect. The correct pattern is VS, VSOP, and Napoleon, XO comes after Napoleon. I missed the quiz because of that
+1

May 28, 2020
True, but Napoléon was unofficial until 2018 and the quiz is older than that.
