Took me a long time to come up with MIT, kept thinking Boston College (rated higher in the BCS at least).

Impeached presidents? They weren't impeached
+3
level 73
Nov 24, 2015
They were. Formal charges were filed by Congress. Doesn't mean they have to stick.

level 73
Nov 24, 2015
It's a common misconception that to impeach a president means to remove them from office.
+2
level 43
Nov 24, 2015
Yes they were. They were both impeached by the house of representatives.
+2
level 45
Nov 24, 2015
Impeached by the House of Reps, which is similar to an indictment. Both were impeached; neither were convicted (thereby removed) by the Senate.

Hmm. Republican and Democrat have the same score, as do Canada and Alaska, but not Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And FDR is quite a bit behind Teddy.
+1
level 70
May 13, 2018
It's logical for Hiroshima to be better remembered than Nagasaki: it was first to be bombed, and, because of where the bomb hit, it was by far the more devastated (not that Nagasaki got off light or anything). As for the other . . . maybe Teddy Roosevelt just rolls off the tongue (or the fingers) better?

It's still Cuban land, but leased by US (or occupied according to Cubans).

I always smile a little when you people refer to it as a revolution.
+9
level 73
May 13, 2018
"In political science, a revolution (Latin: revolutio, "a turn around") is a fundamental change in political power and political organization"

So what do pompous condescending prats suffering inferiority complexes and searching for ways to validate their smugness on the other side of the pond call it when a country engages in popular rebellion against its former colonial masters, severing all ties and creating a new constitution and government, if not a fundamental change in political organization?

Kal is carrying a giant 'Chip' on his shoulders and now and again thinks he is gaining points by using his vitriolic language to pursue the historical past while forgetting the like misdeeds of every other country.
+2
level 73
May 15, 2018
That's some serious Freudian projection there. I'm carrying a chip on my shoulder? Because I'm pointing out the bitterness that inspires bigotry and condescension in posts by other users, that makes me bitter? You're like Donald Trump complaining about "fake news." I don't care about points. I don't care about nationalist pride or any other form of tribalism. I am just speaking the truth.

I know it's being a bit pedantic but neither Clinton nor Johnson were actually impeached though they both did face the impeachment process.
+2
level 48
May 13, 2018
They were still impeached. They just weren't removed from office. Technically different things
+1
level 70
May 13, 2018
To quote Wikipedia (my emphasis): "Impeachment is the process by which a legislative body formally levels charges against a high official of government. Impeachment does not necessarily mean removal from office; it is only a formal statement of charges, akin to an indictment in criminal law, and is thus only the first step towards removal."

American Virgin Islands should definitely be acceptable, especially considering there are also the British Virgin Islands.

US Virgin Islands is accepted. I've never heard them called "American Virgin Islands".

Willis should be acceptable for the Willis Tower. I tried that, and when it didn't work, assumed it must be third and moved on.

level 57
May 14, 2018
I tried a few different iterations before I finally got it all typed in there correctly. I knew what I meant! :-) I got them all but I agree with other commenters that this quiz was pretty particular on what it would accept for answers. Had to go back a few times and re-type things when my answer wasn't acceptable (Ron/Ronald, USVI, etc.)
+1
level 72
May 15, 2018
It should be. Only 1, 4 and 7 are open, and the other two aren't nearly as tall, so what else could you possibly mean but "One World Trade Center"?
