Could traitor be an answer for the question about a country betraying another country

A traitor is not the crime, but rather the criminal. I would say not agree that traitor would be accepted as it doesn't answer the question.

I agree it shouldnt be accepted but tried traitor aswell, then read again, and saw they needed the crime and couldnt think how I could make an "act" out of the word traitor. Traiting, traitoring? lol But treachory sounds good ( not sure if that is used for betrayal of your country or just betrayal in general though)

I know that some do not like complaints about these quizzes being too "americocentric", but I would nevertheless like to point out that tricorns are by no means specific for colonial North America. They were widespread in the 18th century and worn throughout the European cultural sphere (including overseas territories and Asian Russia) - just look up pictures of the Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II, for example.

Pitchforks and tridents are two different things used for completely different actions. Pitchforks are curved and usually have four slim, round tines, and are used for picking up and pitching loose hay. Tridents are straight with three flat, pointed tines and are used for spearing frogs and fish. One could not pitch hay very well with a trident, nor would one have much luck gigging a fish with a pitchfork.

Agreed. Perhaps "three pronged spear" would be a better clue. Also, am I the only one who thought you shout "timberg?"

nice quiz, but not sure why the clue for tardy was not simply Late, why "late for school"....that would be like for the clue toxic you saying "poisonous drink", i.e. the drink part is not needed...
+1
level 58
May 14, 2015
Its an added hint, considering the overwhelming majority of the time one would hear the word "tardy" would be if they were late for school...because unless you come across some overly pedantic asshole, chances are they won't be saying youre tardy for being late to work or lunch.

really? The school addition made me NOT type tardy, because I figure it múst be something else (I literaly almost started typing it and stopped myself). In the end more for fun ( or desperation) I typed tardy anyway, extremely surprised it was right for that clue. I thought it was just a posh/oldfashioned word for late

As a Brit throwing my tuppence worth in, whenever I have heard the word "tardy" I have heard it used only in the context of kids being late to school. It's not a word we use in the UK in my experience, so I have only heard it on american tv and have always had the impression it is used only for little kids. I would've thought it would be inappropriate to call a full grown adult "tardy", but now I'm not so sure!

"The art of stuffing animals." I get a mental picture of somebody stuffing a 'Pooh-bear' type stuffed animal like Rupert on Family Guy wondering to myself "What the hell do they call those people?"
+1
level 54
Dec 18, 2018
Exactly... !! This time I thought of stuffed animals, like the toys, while on another quiz it was the other way around, the only think I could think of was taxidermy. The pluche things hadnt even crossed my mind. (maybe that why this time that was what I thought about, took me another lookover of the clues before the penny dropped. Mainly because I couldnt think of a word for the other thing besides the one I made up, teddying haha

"Cross dresser" is a derogatory term that trans people find extremely offensive the same way a certain "F" word is offensive to gay people. Should be removed. No place for it here.

Crossdressers and transgender people have nothing to do with one another. A crossdresser is simply someone who enjoys wearing clothes for the opposite sex, but still identifies with the gender assigned at birth. Crossdressers exist and are not offensive and practically no transgender person would agree with your position.

personally I think it is the other way around. Atleast here, transvestite isnt peceived as a positive word. Cross dresser is neutral and simply describes it.
+1
level 57
May 18, 2019
Transvestite also simply describes it. Trans - meaning other side. Vest - meaning clothing. Ultimately, it just means a person who wears the clothing of another "side" (in this case, another gender) Transvestite would be offensive to most transgender people if it was used to describe them, but I don't imagine that most actual transvestites would be terribly offended by it

I, as a transgender person, find it offensive if somebody calls *me* a crossdresser or transvestite because I am not one, but if it's not directed at me and the person saying it understands the difference between cross dressing and being transgender, then it's perfectly fine. The T slur, however, is one that I think is universally offensive to cross dressers and transgender people alike (generally speaking, obviously)

A trident is more accurately described as a three-pointed spear. It's a traditional fishing tool, as opposed to a pitchfork, which is a farm tool and has a different shape.
