Also accept Dementia and Alzheimers for the memory question? These also both reference memory loss.

level 71
Sep 22, 2014
They're both illnesses where memory loss is a symptom, but they don't mean memory loss. Amnesia means memory loss, so is the more correct answer.

I'll agree, insomnia is both a symptom (often a side effect of several medications) and a disorder. Senility/dementia should be acceptable as they can also be both a symptom and a side effect.

I tried Alzheimer's too. This question is kind of ambiguous. Good quiz though!

Nov 24, 2016
I tried Alzheimer's, dementia, and forgetfulness, all of which seemed to fit even after seeing the answer. Insomnia is difficulty falling or staying asleep, amnesia is partial or total loss of memory...yeah, okay. But just because I couldn't remember the correct answer doesn't mean I have amnesia. I agree with nycbarb, there could be a better analogy.

Yeah, likewise I tried all those answers listed above with no joy. I do think it could be rewritten or at least those could be accepted as type ins.

isn't it more like ヤクザ is to Japan as Mafioso is to Italy, since Yakuza is an Anglicism in the same way Mafia is? not really fair criticism.

Scratched my head for Gato is to Cat as _ is to Bull. Thought about cracking a joke here about "What do cats have to do with cake anyway?" Got it in the end, because of the answer to Schumacher (there is a team with that as the name). The one I was longest stuck with was "_ is to ring bearer". This ring bearer thing is a little more culture-specific than you might think. In Britain (and most other Christianity-based countries, I imagine) the best man bears the ring. I got it in the last seconds by imagining a little girl with a bouquet, and the phrase popped into my head.

A very nice quiz! But why should be taxi more typical for New York than for the thousands and thousands other cities and towns where you can take one?
+1
level 38
Nov 10, 2017
Because "taxi" is unique to NYC?

Good quiz overall. I do feel that someone should point out that K2 is actually in the Karakoram range and not the Himalaya.

About the K2 and the Matterhorn, the answer is obvious, but what is the analogy exactly ? The Matterhorn is by no means the second highest mountain in the Alps... (which is Monte Rosa if we talk about massifs).
+1
level 73

I second that one, you can call it Monte Rosa or Mont Rose, call the summit by its highest peak, Pointe Dufour or Dufourspitze, but nonetheless, it's the highest summit of Switzerland and taller that the Matterhorn by a good 500 ft. Matterhorn may be the most famous of the Swiss Alps, but I even wonder if it's in Top 3 in height (I'm pretty sure the nearby Weisshorn is taller).

I try frodo baggins for every quiz just in case. Never liked Tolkien so I don't get the references but his name is an answer in many quizzes.

Actually the electron does not exactly orbit around the nucleus, so the analogy with the Solar system is incorrect. While we are always able to locate the Earth when orbiting around the Sun, we can only identify a region where the electron is likely to be...

Wonder why Torro did not work? I thought double letters did not matter. For some odd reason, I always remember Torro, not the snowblower.
