Which U.S. President's face is not depicted on Mount Rushmore?
John Adams
Theodore Roosevelt
George Washington
Ronald Reagan

There's two right answers, Johnn Adams isn't depicted either
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln are the ones depicted on Mount Rushmore...


this is a duplicate question, there is same question already in database but with Dwight Eisenhower instead of Ronald Reagan


i just had nearly exact same question excep the specification was what face IS on

if the best someone can do is reguritate an existing question in databse and change from "not on" to "on" then that person should be banned from submitting anymore questions.

Which is Canada's only officially bilingual province?
Manitoba
New Brunswick
Quebec <- Marked as correct
Ontario

This is wrong: New Brunswick is the only official bilingual province in Canada and Quebec is officially unilingual (French only).


Martin is 100% correct. Another black mark for moderation.

How many eyes has a spider?
12
8 <- Marked as correct
5
6
Spiders have as many as 8 eyes, but some spiders have only 6 eyes and several spiders have fewer or even none. So 6 should not be a possible answer, or the question should be rephrased. Besides it's the spider that has eyes, not eyes that have spiders (bad grammar).

In "The Hobbit", what is the name of Bilbo's sword ?
Bone Biter
Sting *
Blue Fang
Arnor
Though I had no trouble answering this one, (I have read the book more than once,) this question is specialist knowledge, at least until googelability becomes a factor in quiz evaluation.

I do not remember the exact question but it basically asks in which science they use the term "chromatic"?

science of light and science of color are both possible answers which is rather retarted in my opinion (color is just a property of a light - its wavelength). both answers are perfectly acceptable so only one should be listed imho.

What video game, developed by Toru Iwatani, inspired a 1982 Top 40 song by Akron radio jingle composers Jerry Buckner and Gary Garcia?

Isn't this a bit to specialised to be general knowledge, btw. google failed to provide the answer.

What Movie won the best Movie for 2009?
District 9

This was the Oscar for the best picture, might be an idea to say witch award, the MTV award went to Twilight.


Nobuo Uematsu is...
a professional chess player
a famous military general
the president of Japan
a famous composer *
Never heard of him, so can't be that famous. Google revealed him to be a video game composer. The point here is that far to many question deal with less known people, places, things, and label them famous.

Math questions means what is 3/4+2(4-5)=?

Asking about PI which is one of the most known math constants is math trivia, not a math question. I can see how it could confuse, thank you for bringing it up

Could someone please translate that to English? I found that "Larry Graham" (marked as the correct answer) and "Louis Johnson" invented the technique of slapping bass guitar strings while playing, what this has to do with guitar creation is beyond me.

As per the Chinese Canadian Culture Project:
It was estimated that for every mile of train track laid in the Rockies, four Chinese lost their lives. Some 600 Chinese died while building the CPR and often their bodies were not found.

Is anybody bothering to check the actual questions anymore??? This is rediculous.

A Helter Skelter is a ?
a firemans tool
fair ground attraction* (fair ground should be spelled as 1 word Fairground Attraction)
a inuet house
a winter sport

Other than a Beatles Song, A Hostel in Central Berlin, and british slang for a childs slide, where do you get fair ground attraction??? I went through 2 pages of google results and couldn't get the answer the author marked as correct. Ferris Wheel, Merry-Go-Round, Bumper Cars... those are Fairground attractions, not a childrens slide.

I can remember when the Band Pink Floyd got taken to court over imporper usage of the english language for using the double negative; "we don't need no education." Maybe the evaluators should be taken to court for improper use of any language!!
But then again, this question, just like all the others will sit on the forum, maybe someone else will complain about it again in a few months and no one will do anything about it... just like all the other questions that are brought to this forum... oh, and by the way, thanx for setting up a place for everybody to bring forward found mistakes to try to improve the game, just so that they can be IGNORED !!!!! ... from now on I'll take the points and I urge everyone to do the same.... when there are no more questions they, the game mods, will have to do something to fix the problem, at least I hope they will.... eventually... in a century or 2.

and while I venting.... where's the grammar police??? only 1 answer starts with a capital?? I've had questions refused for that, why not this one???
I know my grammar sux... but hey!!! I'm bitching, it's allowed to suck!!!!
