No, Cyprus did not all of a sudden became part of Europe when entering the UE. The island is under turkey, and in front of Syria, far in this "corner". It's asian, even by the same standart that says Europe is a continent.

Uhhh... When the NHL began it was 3 Canadian teams and 3 American teams. You could argue that the nation being spoken of was Canada.

The NHL actually began in Canada in the late 1910s, long before the Original Six era of the 40s, 50s, and 60s. So I think the nation being spoken of actually is Canada.

The NHL is headquartered in New York. 23/30 teams are American. I'm using American in the sense that literally every other person who's not trying to be a jerk has always used it. Hope that clears that up.

Re: Cyprus, membership in any league or political organization or participation in some international cultural/economic/whatever event or activity etc does not place you on a continent. Continental lines are arbitrarily and inconsistently determined. Cyprus could be placed in any of three continents with reasonably good arguments behind each placement. Being in the EU isn't by itself a conclusive argument.

The original argument was bizarre so the counter, analogous arguments are bizarre by design. If Brexit goes through and the UK withdraws from the EU does that mean it's no longer in Europe? And if the NHL is Canadian then just flip what I said around.. apparently San Jose, Anaheim, and Washington are cities in Canada.

Just so you're aware... château is french for castle, and a castle and a manor house are two very different things.
+1
level 77
May 11, 2014
True, but that doesn't stop people from referring to their manor houses as "chateau"s. A chalet is supposed to be a "herdsman's hut"- but I haven't noticed any goats at Tahoe. Usage of words change over time.

level 76
Nov 10, 2015
Not necessarily. Castles can become manor houses, and manor houses are often called castles, just because of symbolism and stuff. Not sure if it's exactly the same in France but that's how I understand it in England.

level 65
May 12, 2019
Biggest city in southern Ireland is Cork. The Republic of Ireland should never be referred to as "Southern Ireland". That's just the British being dumb/snide about the place - as usual. "Northern Ireland" is a separate, political entity and some of its counties are actually further south than some of those of the Republic of Ireland.

Getting back to the NHL, the "The National Hockey League was organized on November 26, 1917, in Montreal ... It started with four teams (all based in Canada) ... The "nation" referred to by the league's name was Canada, although the league has now been binational since 1924 when its first team in the United States, the Boston Bruins, began play." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Hockey_League

England is not an acceptable answer, atleast I hope not since it is in the clue! (and would not be correct by any means). And Cornwall is a county not a country. I am not sure how you were reading the question, but you must ve gotten some things mixed up (though I am still not sure what you were thinking. England is not a county or country in cornwall, so that cant be what you were thinking., and, Ok I will stop and trying to make my brain go in circles on this one, I cant figure it out haha.)

There are an awful lot of English universities beginning with C. Just because Cambridge is the most famous doesn't mean other answers aren't right. Maybe put the word 'oldest' into the clue? Or to be more accurate, 'second oldest' (but Oxford doesn't begin with 'C' so......)
+1
level 62
Sep 16, 2019
An awful lot? They are asking for the name of the city btw, and not the name of the university. I can only find; Canterbury, Chelmsford, Chester, Chichester and Coventry, ow and Carlisle (they need to ánd a city ánd in england (not elsewhere in the UK) ánd have a university).

So that is only 6 and not an awfull lot. (btw there are only about 8 universities that start with a C (if you discount those that start with college (or city of) )

(I am not gonna check the box and request this, just putting it out here) So yea, there are a few other cities starting with a C with universities in england, so technically either all the above should be allowed. Or to make it clear, something added to the clue. But really it is the most known one and probably the only one people would come up with, for those that do not live in the UK

+1

Actually,, those are really ALL the cities in england that start with a C. All of them have an university :) (And only other city in the UK starting with a C is cardiff, but that is in Wales)
