Pure topaz is clear, but yellow is one of if not the most common colors of topaz (it gets it's tint from impurities). Orange/Gold/Yellow topaz is the birthstone for November, which is likely part of the reason it is commonly known as yellow.

Blue topaz is also the birth stone for March, should really list chemical formula or Moh's hardness as a hint for that one.

I would object to Jazz being relegated to popularity only before 1960. It is certainly popular now.

Jazz accounts for only 1.1% of record sales.

Do people still buy records? ;) But seriously, sales doesnt equal popularity. (Though it is a usefull indicator). Jazz is something people often enjoy to see live and might not be something that people buy a lot of records for. Cause it is the atmosphere that is part of the enjoyment.

I see 'spritz' in the dictionaries as spraying with liquid, but in 52 years in England I've not noticed this usage in books, print, on the web or in conversation. Whereas many friends and I use its Italian, especially Venetian usage to mean a cocktail of bitter liqueur with pro secco. The clue would be better understood if it referred to this meaning.

I've heard it lots of times through various media. Never that I can recall in general UK conversation, but I wouldn't say it's obscure. Didn't have to reach for the answer.

I'm usually not one to comment, but this time I can't help but do so. Anyone else slightly disappointed that 'quiz' wasn't one of the answers? I know it wouldn't add much to the difficulty curve, but I think it would be beautifully clever.

I'm annoyed by the clue for "blitz". That's neither the original nor the most common definition for the word. I have no idea about American football terminology. It's interesting not knowing answers when I haven't heard of the answer but not when it's just a bad clue.

Got stuck for a while on the "Scatterbrained person" Q. Yutz seemed to fit the bill... putz to a lesser extent. Finally took a shot with Spazz.... and of course Ditz pops up in its place. I'll take it!

Slang often, dare I say usually comes from another language. Minorities that live in a certain country usually. So the sources differs per country. In the Netherlands many words used in "street language" come from Sranantongo, Papiamento, Turkish en Maroccan and of course english terms like cool and what's up. Because of our connections with suriname and the antilles and that a lot of immigrants are either turkish or moroccan.
