I thought Tyler would be acceptable as a Scrabble word since it's a position in the Masonic lodge, (the door-keeper) but when I looked it up it's not in the dictionary.

I don't get it: If Ulysses is his middle name, then what is the S in "Ulysses S Grant"?
+5
Level 55
Jun 4, 2020
According to Britannica:

"Grant decided to reverse his given names and enroll at the academy as Ulysses Hiram (probably to avoid having the acronym HUG embroidered on his clothing); however, his congressional appointment was erroneously made in the name Ulysses S. Grant, the name he eventually accepted, maintaining that the middle initial stood for nothing. He came to be known as U.S. Grant — Uncle Sam Grant — and his classmates called him Sam."

There was no legal birth registry in the US when Grant was born, and his college enrollment may have been the first official registry of his name. My own grandparents changed their first names on their marriage license because they thought their given names sounded too childish for adults. Those became their legal names since it was the first time their names had appeared on an official document.

Am I the only one who thinks it's a bit daft to give lots of answers for following questions when you get a question right?

Would it not be better to just have a tick to say you got the question right and then move onto the next question? I literally got half my answers for this quiz from the other answers that came up on previous questions I'd answered.

Wait, wait, wait. So W.'s signature appeal was the whole "you could have a beer with him" shtick....and you couldn't even have a beer with him? Just another reason we should have elected the Rent Is Too Damn High guy.

I don't remember that being his shtick. I thought it was pretty well known that he was a recovered alcoholic and didn't drink anymore.

Because the S is not an abbreviation for something it should not be followed by a period. One of those arcane parts of the language often overlooked.
