Havent you heard of shakespeare? I hope that doesnt remind you of someone shaking a spear ;) I am not sure I have seen the play it self, but it sounds equally familiar as romeo&julia, hamlet, a midsummernight's dream etc.

It was the first thing that came to mind seeing the word, even without venice. It actually supplanted what I used to know about moors before I heard about the shakespeare play. Now only shakespeare comes to mind.

I have trouble believing that even six percent of quiz takers got that one without cheating. "Let me see, what is that fourth-largest town in Greenland...it's right on the tip of my tongue - and my husband and I were just discussing it last week." Gotta love the name, though, and maybe I'll know it next time.

Maybe not the greatest film ever made, but.....(spoiler altert!!!)....

I thought it was interesting how, within the story, they came up with that name. From the tattered remains of the cover of some old book, what they could make out was "zardoz". The complete text from the cover of the book would've been "The Wizard of Oz".

That would definitely be a great idea for "Z", though! I mean, since "J" and "Q" are what they are, why not throw "Z" in there too? At least a few people would have a shot at that one.

Z is quite funny, just a joke to finish the quiz. J and Q are almost impossible to know (and, frankly, I like to learn, but these are not very useful). However, such a quiz is best if all 26 letters are featured...

The brilliant radio comedy "Cabin Pressure" by John Finnemore. It's about a small charter airline and each of the 26 episodes is named for an alphabetical destination. Q was Qikiqtarjuaq (an island in Nunavut). I shortened it, but even in full, it could have made this quiz.

I might be mistaken, but I thought the statistics went only by the first time individuals take the quiz. If so, there's no way this side of Qaqortoq and Joyabaj that 9% and 13% came up with the answer without a little internet help.
I was always curious the percentage who see any reason to bother cheat.

'Cause sometimes we have a lot of time left in the quiz and we feel like it. Other times, we go for the lower score. And by Googling, we actually learn more than just seeing the answer in red when the time runs out.

wow. How about not spoiling it for others screwing up the result, and take the quiz normally, atleast the 1st time, then just do a 2nd attempt after looking up the answers. Then you stll get your precious points (which have become meaningless then but whatever) and others actually have some usefull statistics. Seeing how well some answers did compared to others is part of the fun (and to see how well you did yourself compared to the rest).

To me it seems you still have quite a lot to learn.

I'm going to admit right here I copied and pasted that Greenland city. I don't that often, but I did force myself to learn stuff: -The area has been inhabited for 4300 years. -Used to be named Julianehaab, from colonial era. -They are considering building an airport with a much longer runway.

I totally made a word up for v and it was accepted ! I made sure it started and ended with a v though, and thought and ending in '-slav might be fitting. So I made venceslav. Not even close but it got accepted ! Never heard of wenceclaus or vaclav.

never heard of q and j either. And I missed libel, have heard of it before but dont think I would ve come up with it. Happy with my results though. Some tough ones here for someone not from an english speaking country.
