Never heard of the art styles, and I had three college roommates who were art majors. After I looked up the terms I realized that the wonderful picture one of them gave me is an example of pointillism. I just never knew the word for it.

I think we did pointillism back in primary school, only we didn't call it that.

I think knives should be acceptable. Types of Knives sounds better than types of knife. Never knew stiletto was a knife. I thought it was only a type of heel.

I knew stiletto as a heel and a pen knib. I assumed the heel was named after the nib.

Could "sun" also be acceptable for the types of stars?
+5
Level 70
Nov 5, 2015
Sun is really just the name of our Star. Other stars have their own names such as Sirius, Rigel etc.. The clues given such as Red Giant, Neutron etc. are types of stars not names of stars.

I am shocked that meotropetriglyph finds these art terms obscure at all. Anyone with a cursory interest would know at least two.

To me, Fandango is a website where you buy movie tickets, while a Jitterbug is a phone for old people. Yeah, didn't get that one.

Really? Bohemian Rhapsody even mentions the fandango.

The fandango in Bohemian Rhapsody isn't a dance. It's the struggles of a hanged man.

Could "baseball throw" be accepted for "pitch" for those who don't master all subtleties and technicalities of this great sport?
+3
Level 83
Mar 8, 2018
But those listed are all specific pitches, thrown only by one player, the "pitcher".

It's hard to imagine someone knowing the word "knuckleball" and not knowing the word "pitch".

Level 31
Mar 8, 2018
I knew all three terms as I play baseball it still took me well over 30 seconds to get "pitch" as I was typing just as dubucannon was saying "Throws" "Baseball Throws" and finally got to "Pitches".

Quite logical in my opinion. Recognising a word or suspecting where it is from, isnt the same as really knowing it. (Like i guessed the yoga right and I have never even heard of any of them). I have heard of baseball, have even heard of fastball and i see them throwing a ball.

Couldn't the angle question also be traingle?
+3
Level 65
Mar 8, 2018
Nope, they're all angles. If it was 'equilateral, isosceles, scalene', then triangle would be correct
+3
Level 74

obtuse, acute and right are also types of triangles.

The beer clue is not ideal because Pilsner and Porter are beer styles while lager is a broader classification that includes Pilsner.
+1
Level 55
Mar 9, 2018
Lager is considered a style or type of beer. If you look up the definitions for "lager," "ale," "pilsner," etc., all definitions will describe these as different types of beer. Here's an interesting article from wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_beer_styles

You should accept throw for the pitch.
+4
Level 32
Mar 18, 2018
I'm in favour of this. I wasn't familiar with these terms, but from movies, I know that "something"ball often refers to a way of throwing a ball. And I don't see why you have to specifically write "pitch", when a pitch is a throw.
+2

Jan 11, 2019
I second this, I tried variations of throwing and effect. If you are not american, (definately when english isn t your language) it is almost impossible to get/know.

I do know there is a pitcher and a catcher though. But I see them throwing the ball

Please don't accept throw for pitch. Tell quiz takers this is how you learn.

Quite a few of these are repeated from previous quizzes: Shoe; Rock; Poem; Star; + the angle one also works as Triangle, which was in a previous one.
