I feel like the Pan Am question should say 'Libyan Terrorists' not just Libya.

Hmm is green a "thing" ? ... too early to think about things like that.. (and perhaps too sober..)

Yeah, I thought that one was a little iffy. Green isn't a noun, it's an adjective. I wouldn't say the only thing on the outside of my car is white. Asking what is the only color on the flag would make more sense to me, but then again, flags have never been my thing. It was probably an easy answer for the vexillology crowd.

You had the opportunity to reference Back to the Future, but alas, I'm left disappointed. Still a good quiz.

Could you accept "Arabian Spring" or "Arabic Spring"? That's how I translated it from German

Can you please accept alternate spellings for Gaddafi's name? I tried "Gadhafi" at first, which is also a pretty common spelling for his name. I also know it's sometimes spelled with a Q instead of a G (so Qaddafi instead of Gaddafi).

Maybe it should ask what is the only color to appear on the flag. I assumed a thing would have to be an object on the flag, so I guessed star, crescent, stripe, and other likely objects to appear on a flag. I would argue that Libya's old flag had no objects on it.

When referencing a "thing"on a flag, it must be a thing-green is a color not a "thing." A thing refers to something tangible.

"Official langauge" That's not how you spell language.
