Good suggestion. Those will work now.

It's called cutlery in a lot of places too. And I don't know if flatware is accepted or not but it probably should be.

I agree with yankeh. Cutlery is the only word i could think of. Unless you added something like Spatula or rolling pin to the clue.

I put philosophies and it didn't work, also utensil didn't work for me, but kitchen utensil did.

philosophies didn't work but it should. I did finally figure it out though.

If you typed "utensil", it definitely would have worked. Spelling error, perhaps.

Missed a couple, but I think it's a cultural thing- as I have no idea what a Cape Cod house is!! Surprisingly difficult in places.

I was trying to be more specific... put in things like.. "retreat," "vacation home," etc. but none of those worked.

Could "belief system" be made an alternative for anarchism, hedonism, etc.?
+1
Level 26
Nov 16, 2012
I agree. I tried belief, movement, etc.

Nov 16, 2012
Can you say "cutlery" for "utensil". We would not use utensil in the UK for that. Also, ideology for "anarchism... etc"?
+2
Level 55
Nov 16, 2012
I always thought cutlery was the stuff you ate the food with and utensils were the things you made it with? No? Still, cutlery should at least be an accepted answer.

Google it for a picture. It's a specific design of cottage which originated in New England in the 1600s and came to be known as a Cape Cod by the 1800s.

I honestly spent a long time wondering why anyone would want to insure an umbrella. I got to the point of thinking it must be an American thing when it dawned on me.

Bluegrass? Sure. Switchgrass? Not a lot of us deal much with North American tallgrass prairie, which the National Park Service calls "one of the rarest . . . ecosystems in the world."

Adding "Home" as an acceptable answer for Cape Cod, Bungalow, Ranch would be nice. Missed that one even though I had the right idea.

I may be totally wrong, and I probably am, but could Theory also be accepted for the Anarchism...

Level 7
Jul 17, 2015
I think a theory is generally used to explain something e.g. Game Theory, General Relativity, Evolution, whereas philosophies are more of an attitude towards something.

Level 67
Feb 26, 2016
The Grass one has really low percentage, and it's the only one I missed. I was thinking that if you added "Fescue" it might have helped me out (or anyone who golfs often). Just a thought. but maybe it's good to have a really hard one on there

The "house" question feels very American. If it had been bungalow, semi-detached and terraced then I would have had an easier time getting it. Never heard of a "Cape cod house"........
+1
Level 72
Jun 20, 2016
I did not figure out the grass one, mostly I think because I was convinced the answer must be "plate". (Think about it!)
+1
Level 68
Dec 6, 2017
Agreed. I thought plate should work too.

Yeah, that grass one...

Can you also add "ideal" for "anarchism, utilitarianism, hedonism?"

Which part did you find difficult? The clues or coming up with the english word for the answer? (I had 18/20 and didnt feel like the language held me back)

Level 67
Jan 11, 2019
Though I believe the screwdriver one is language bound. You cant just translate them, we simply dont use those terms. (But thats why I remember them, cause it is odd when you hear it for the first time, phillips head, what?!?)

"Anarchism, Utilitarianism, Hedonism"

Types of ethics is better.

+1
Level 60
Jan 6, 2021
Hedonism has nothing to do with ethics. Going about life and saying "yes" to every pleasure is neither ethical nor unethical. For ethics you need more than one person and hedonism is only about yourself, it's about how you seek to achieve happiness.
+1
Level 74
Jan 6, 2021
Look up the Wikipedia page, the second sentence already is about ethical hedonism. I quoted the passage but for some reason the comment was deleted.

Ethics will work now. Your original comment was deleted for formatting reasons, since you put an anchor tag around the entire comment.

Why did only 7% get grass? Seemed to be very easy but I guess people just don't know their grasses

Please accept 'beliefs' for 'philosophies'....

Jan 6, 2021
Please accept Doctrines for Philosophies, that's what we call them here. Utilitarianism, Hedonism are all different kinds of Political Doctrines

Level 65
Jan 6, 2021
Why does the "grass" clue have four examples instead of three? The quiz description specifically says "We give you THREE examples..." That really threw me off, I assumed one of the commas had to be a typo. I was trying to guess whether the examples should be "Blue Crab, Lemon, Switch" or "Blue, Crab, Lemon Switch" or similar.

I was done pretty early except for the hedonism one. I tried so many things: doctrines, theories, states, and more than I can't remember now and could not get it. That's a real tough one!
