Never heard of Worcestershire sauce in a caesar dressing. Anchovies (at least in the dressing) are a must though!

Really! You can't accept "worm" for What animal makes silk? I tried worm and then spider. Neither worked, so I said screw it...I must have been misinformed all these years.

Same here. Silk is in the question, so worm should be fine imo.

I've had fondue many times but never heard of Chinese hot pot - had to look that up after it was my one fail on this quiz. It seems to involve dipping bits of things into a communal stock pot - so I guess that's why 'fondue'.

I eventually but in Bison, but a lot of people consider the Moose the largest land animal in North America. Some bison weigh more than an adult bull moose, but a bull moose is unquestionably taller than the biggest bison and can occasionally outweigh many bison.

I kept typing in Kenya for Obama's birthplace and it wasn't accepted. Oh well, I guess even jetpunk believes he was born in the USA.

Surely there are a huge number of correct answers to the silk question. Spider, for example.To quote the Wikipedia page on silk: "Silk production also occurs in Hymenoptera (bees, wasps, and ants), silverfish, mayflies, thrips, leafhoppers, beetles, lacewings, fleas, flies, and midges. Other types of arthropod produce silk, most notably various arachnids such as spiders (see spider silk)."

Yeah, it should perhaps be made more clear that they mean "what animal's silk is used to make silk fabric."

I tried Fibonacci's birthday for March 14th. In retrospect, that was pretty stupid because it wouldn't be on the 14th, he would have probably been born on the 1st, the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 8th, 13th, or the 21st.

Looking back this comment is comical. I actual did worse when I took it in February than when I took it in 2015. SMH. Apparently in February I hadn't figured out that you could see the scores from previous times.
