OMG

Look at this question:

Which of these tv shows is not a comedy?

How I Met Your Mother
Big Bang Theory
Psych
Burn Notice - marked as correct

When I looked at the imdb.com I realized that every one of them is a comedy. WTF? Who evaluated this?

How many senators are there in America?
50
120
150
100 <- marked as correct (witch is the number of senators in the US senate.)

I'm sure there are quite a few more than 150 senators in America, this should be "How many senators are there in USA?"

This is the only US state that may fly their flag at the same height as the US flag?
California
Texas <- marked as correct
Massachusetts
Virginia

This question is wrong, ALL US states may fly their flag at the same height as the US flag. It is an urban legend that only the Texas flag may fly for the same height as the US flag.


What is the name of Kabir Bedi's character in the James Bond movie?
Minor issue as Kabir Bedi, as far as I have found on the web so far, only played in one James Bond movie, but the name or the number of the movie should be in the question.

How many eyes does a bee have?
2
16
24
32

The correct answer is marked as 2 but the real answer should be 5. 2 compound eyes and 3 more simple eyes.



What is the longest mountain range in the world?
The Himalayas
The Andes
The Rockies
The Balkans

The correct answer is marked as Andes, which is true if the question was "in the worlds in a continent". Otherwise the answer should be Ocean Ridge.

While I didn't write that question, I think in this case IMDB is bad way to look it up. They tend to broad range categorize shows. While it does have a bit of comedy in it, it is more of a drama/thriller than a comedy. This might be a bad question for the database anyways since those shows are american and might not be available or common in other countries.

Which of these tiger subspecies is not extinct?
Javan tiger
Caspian tiger
South China tiger <- marked as correct
Bali tiger

Sadly this question might all to soon become invalid. No confirmed sightings of the South China Tiger have been made for a long time, 20-25 years, estimates are that fewer than 20 wild individuals remain. Around 80 live in captivity, and there are attempts to return some of these to the wild. So for now it is still valid, and let's hope it stays that way.

No man has seen it, but all men know it. Lighter than air, sharper than any sword. Comes from nothing, but will fell the strongest armies.
Steel
Time
Hunger <---- marked as correct
Strategy

I see how hunger works as the right answer here, but technically one could argue that time also works just as well. Maybe take it off as a possible answer.

I am posting this to all quiz forums because some seem to either not know or do not care to check:

I have created a topic under quiz section where i post why i rejected a question and what can be done to fix it for re submition (if possible). That takes quite some time and effort but i do it willingly to help the players with their questions. Some keep re posting the same question as it is. So that is a fair warning i give: If i get the same question 2 times EXACTLY the same, i will mark the player. If i see after that the same issue, trying to re post questions again exactly the same, i will give the delete evaluation and he will loose for a while the right to post. I hate to do this, but i hope i will not have to. So check under "Why did i reject a question" before you re submit. If i rejected it, it will be there (unless i gave the already in database)

Please do not make me regret i took the time to created the topic.

In Greek mythology who was the father of Theseus, Triton and Polyphemus?

Poseidon
Demeter
Hades
Zeus

in google it says theseus had 2 fathers and when i searched the most promiant name associated with him was aegeus not posiden

these greek mythology questions are very annoying, they are based on myths and there seems to me half a dozen different versions of each myth whenever i google them

Better to say "Football / Soccer", as for some, there is a difference, and 12 is a valid number.
