Took me a long time to come up with MIT, kept thinking Boston College (rated higher in the BCS at least).
Might consider accepting Teddy for the other Roosevelt?

Yes! But MIT does have John Urschel, so that's got to help the offensive line.

'Cities the Atomic Bombed by the US'? Really?! Is that the best attempt at grammar you could come up with?

Should be H_______a then N______i, in time order and alphabetical. Putting N first isn't logical by any criterion.

Yeah, weird that it accepts it at Ronald but not Ron. Why I didn't just type Goldman, who knows.

I suppose Guantanamo Bay doesn't count as a territory? Or is it an occupied area of Cuba rather than a territory of the US?
+1
level 73
Dec 3, 2016
It's still Cuban land, but leased by US (or occupied according to Cubans).
+1
level 67
May 15, 2018
Does US pay Cuba for the lease?
+1
level 63
Jan 31, 2019
Yes, we do pay for it, but the Cubans never accept the money because doing so would legitimize the US presence there.

I always smile a little when you people refer to it as a revolution.
+9
level 76
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?

Did your mum never teach you, if you can't say anything nice, just don't say anything?

What did I say that wasn't nice? It was a legitimate question.

Pharley, I like Clairee Belcher's quote from Steel Magnolias better, "If you don't have anything nice to say about anybody, come sit by me."

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 76
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.
+3
level 48
May 13, 2018
They were still impeached. They just weren't removed from office. Technically different things
+1
level 78
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.

But what if there was a question about the big brother on Diff'rent Strokes?

It would help if the clue mentioned that the winter Olympics was included, never heard them referred to as just "Olympics" before.

"Olympics" covers both the Summer and the Winter Games.

Can "World Trade Center" be accepted instead of "One World Trade Center?"

level 63
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 75
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"?
+1

May 15, 2018
Dammit, I spelled 'centre' properly.
