Coro, Luxint, even if the LSE was world-famous (which it's not by any stretch of the imagination; I've never even heard of it and I've been to both the US and the UK), it's not something that comes to mind when you think of London. It's like if 'Dad' was a clue for American.

barbeque = "a common misspelling of barbecue. This common form arises understandably from a confused conflation of the proper spelling BARBECUE, the abbreviation BAR-B-Q, and phonetic spelling. Its frequency does not quite justify it: In no other English word does QUE attain the status of a stand-alone, terminal syllable." The New Oxford American Dictionary [also checked Oxford Dictionary of English, but barbeque is not even an entry] In other words, barbeque would be pronounced bar-beck.

I find it ironic that I should have gotten Korean, which is currently lowest on the stats chart. I watched Food Network shows on Netflix, played some K-Pop for the home basketball games, and know my history. I guess my mind strayed to American places for barbecue and never returned.

The Scottish one is the only one I didn't get. I've never heard of a Scottish rite or a Scottish fold, and think you're probably right that a Scottish terrier is what we usually call a West Highland Terrier.

A Scottish Terrier is a Scottie dog :) It's a similar size to a West Highland Terrier (Westie) but is black, not white. They're two separate breeds.

Muay Thai, the original martial art most commonly referred to as kickboxing, is from Thailand. It's also called Thai boxing (though not usually Thai kickboxing, as it's the only kind of Thai boxing). Thai iced tea is delicious- it's a strong black tea spiced with star anise, cardamon etc, then sweetened with sugar or condensed milk, and iced, of course. Sweet, spicy, cool and creamy.
