If a plane were to crash with exactly half of the wrekage in France, and the remaining half is in Spain; where would you bury the survivors?
The country of their birth.
You don't bury the survivors.
France
Spain

My only problem with this question is it a repeat. This question is already in the database with two different countries.

Who was the pioneer of RPG?
Todd Lockwood
Richard Awlinson
Gary Gigax
R. A. Salvatore

Gary gigax is a pioneer of RPG's but he is not the first. He actually developed Dungeons and Dragons off of a love he had for playing a War RPG. IF the question was changed to 'Who was the pioneer of fantasy RPG?" then the question would be correct. Please correct this.

What brightly colored amphibians secrete toxins from glands behind their heads?
Fugu Fish
Frill-necked Lizard
Fire-bellied Toad <- marked as correct, and the only amphibian among them.
Fiddler Crab

Based on the answers this question is really which is an amphibian, as only one of the 4 answers is an amphibian. And the answer to the question is, most brightly coloured frogs and toads do. In fact they don't have to be brightly coloured to do so.

something that is untrue
a person who talks nonsense
an old smelly person
a drunken person <- marked as correct

Jupiter is named for which of the following greek gods?
Apollo
Hercules

Where was Christopher Columbus born in?
Italy
Spain
France
Germany
Just a tiny little "in" to much in the question.

South Pole
Greenland
North Pole
Iceland
Neither are objects, two are geographical points and two are countries as well as islands. So basically a badly worded question.

Sadly, that question is part of my dumbed-down series of questions and as easy at it is, currently, only 52% have gotten it correct. The description does fit the correct answer though, so I fail to see how this is an error.

In that case I guess the only "error" is that the question is worded to suggest that all are amphibians, if you had worded it: "Which of these is a brightly coloured amphibian that...." I would not have misunderstood it.

Where is the grave of Friedrich Engels?
Barmen
London
Unknown
Manchester


a) Completely uninteresting & lexical
b) "Unknown" is just another version of "none of the above"
c) Q. How was Friedrich Engels buried?
A. Following his instructions, his body was cremated and his ashes strewn over the ocean at Eastbourne, his favorite holiday resort.

Therefore, he wasn't even buried, making the whole question wrong/ambiguous

What exactly is the problem with this one?

Viridel, i wouldnt call it uninteresting since he was the father of communist theory amongst other things. So for a lot of people it can be interesting to know. But the fact that he is not actually buried (i guess the answer was unknown) does make the question bad

Oh, duh, MAJOR problem... There is a US (Imperial) Gallon and a Metric Gallon. Similar in amount, but the US Gallon is about 20% larger than the Metric. Actually, that will be a good question.
