look, i'm fine with this question, but its presence illustrates the uncertainty for us in understanding the criteria for what gets accepted.

"Which planet was Princess Leia raised on?"

while star wars is quite popular, this seems to clearly fall into
"Do not ask ones that ... [are] known only by a special group (e.g. Magic the Gathering, comics etc.)."

How often does the average human blink?

1 second
3 seconds
8 seconds
5 seconds

Well, if someone just blinks 5 seconds (which is the accepted answer) he/she will have used all the blinking real soon after birth!! I'm sure it should have been "Once per 1/3/5/8 seconds"

"How old was Jesus when he was crucified?"

If you for a moment assume that Jesus is a historical figure it is uncertain when he was born, some estimates say between year 6 and 4 BCE (Before Common Era) and his death between year 30 and 36 CE (Common Era).
Since both 30 and 33 are in the answer option a reference must be part of the question. 33 was accepted as correct answer here.
If you don't accept Jesus as a historical figure then you definitely need a reference.

shouldn't this qualify as 'known only to a special group'?

"In the cinema version of The Lord of the Rings, what form did the firework lit by Merry and Pippin take?"

this is not exactly a major plot point.

i don't understand this question. there are balls associated with all the sports in the answers.
i selected the answer with beach as one of the three (beach ball - not a sport) but was told that was incorrect (beach volley ball?).

Put "ball" at the end of each of these words. Which group has a ball not associated with a sport?
