I'm glad to see that Falun Gong gets a mention here, since most people aren't aware of that modern-day (ongoing) genocide. But then it was spoiled when I saw the percentages, reminding me that still hardly anyone is aware of it.

Yeah, I knew it was fa-something-gong, but didn't know "lun"

Spent over half a minute trying different spellings, failed. Can't you accept gong alone? Most people will misspell the first element, I suspect.

On the sidewalks and streets of NYC, they used to raise awareness for their plight by posing themselves
tied up in torture
scenarios. Close by would be a sign explaining the unsettling scene. Years later I remember it.

Interestingly in the United States they've now found success pushing Trump and Alex Jones-style whacko conspiracy theories in their newspaper and online and are now the single biggest funder of pro-Trump political ads on Facebook outside of the Trump campaign. Their religion is downright kooky and exploitative, too. Maybe the Chinese government had their reasons for going after them.

Although I did answer French Revolution, the answer should be Reign of Terror to be strictly accurate. Which of course means it can't be in this quiz.

To Hwes: You are perfectly free to no longer visit this quiz, concoct your own "strictly accurate" one or, alternately, get a life!

Kwes you have my support on that complaint. I don't get why people love to have a wrong answer in a quiz.

I read "gunpowder plotter" as "gunpowder plot" and kept typing in Fifth of November, then tried Fifth of December and September just to cover my bases.

Excellent quiz... really made me think.

I'll have a hard time forgetting the feudal system after reading a Calvin and Hobbes comic strip related to it. Calvin is writing an essay which reads 'In the Middle Ages, lords and vassals lived in a futile system.' Hobbes walks by and points out, 'That's "Feudal system".' Calvin looks bewildered, and then rests his head in his hands, grumbling, 'Just when I thought this junk was beginning to make sense.' It was very funny.

Can you add "US" to the founding father question? That way people outside your country know where you're referring to.

Is there anyone referred to as a "founding father" in any other country that uses $100 bills?

NZ $100 features Lord Ernest Rutherford, "Father of the Atom". Not an F name though.
Aug 8, 2017
..unless his middle name was Ruther.

Got the Jewish diarist thanks to Benjamin!!

Howard Florey was the co-developed Penicillin and shared the Nobel Prize with Fleming for doing so (along with Sir Ernst Boris Chain whose name obviously doesn't begin with F). Florey should be an answer here.
Apr 28, 2018
Florey developed the production and use of penicillin, but he wasn't involved in discovering it, which is what the question asks about.

Faraday did not discover electromagnetism. his work was a part of the general EM theory by Maxwell. you may credit him for creating the first electric engine and conducting successfull research on them but not discovered EM more than Ampere or Gauss did.

Can you please accept the reign of terror as the period when the guillotine found frequent use?
Jan 2, 2019
The Feign of Terror, or the Reign of Ferror, maybe. Otherwise it doesn't fit the quiz.
