In what city is Disneyland located?
Orlando, Florida
Anaheim, California
Miami, Florida
Los Angeles, California

Whenever I hear "Disneyland" the first city I think of is Paris. And Wikipedia says this:
Disneyland is the original Disney theme park in Anaheim, California.

Disneyland may also refer to:

Theme parks
Tokyo Disneyland, a theme park near Tokyo, Japan
Disneyland Park (Paris), a theme park at Disneyland Paris. Previously called Euro Disneyland and Disneyland Paris
Hong Kong Disneyland, a theme park at the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort


So Disneyland is not only located in Anaheim. (Of the possible answers it is the only correct answer, yes. But I think the question should be more specific.)

Spain came through a civil war just before the world war 2. Although sympathized with the Axis, the country officially never entered into the war and stayed neutral.
However this neutral thing did not keep Franco from sending "volunteers" to fight the Soviets. On the other hand there were several thousand volunteers fighting against the nazis in France, too.

I have a problem with this question. It offends my intelligence.

"how long would An ounce of gold, stretched into a wire be?"

That would depend on gauge of the wire.

What color is Big Bird on Sesame Street?
Green
Yellow
Brown
Red

Then how do you explain this:
The colour varies per country. The name varies as well, so actually this question might just work(, because it says "Big Bird").

Which country did not come under German rule during World War II?
Greece
Noway
Spain <- Marked as correct
France

Sure, Spain didn't come under German rule during WW2. But I am pretty sure Noway didn't either, although Norway was occupied by Germany.

How on earth does these things slip through?

Good point altough it took me a while to realise you meant there is a spelling error and not an actual problem (had to read your post a few times until i realised the NOWAY instead of NORWAY. So imagine evaluating during a hunt how easy is to miss that

I couldn't resist this.

Turns out there is a village called Noway Camp in Liberia.

It wasn't occupied by the Germans in WWII.

Mind you, it isn't a country either!

That is possible, but with the kind of questions that gets rejected from the quiz, and then something like this makes it through? It´s annoying.

Also, it is an "odd one out" question, a type of question that should be filtered out (according to http://forum.doomlord.net/index.php/topic,14.0).

Being curious I had to look this up. There actually is an Irish war of Independence (1919-21) (1), but the bloody Sunday incident takes place in 1972 (2) during a Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association march.

So the answer is wrong.

The question asks which is not a fruit
