"Who is Chuck Norris?"

i'm pretty sure this question has come up before. one of the wrong answers is currently 'good' which can be argued is another correct answer, as he's quite good at martial arts (if not acting). i suspect the intent of the author was to make a joke with Chuck being 'god'.

A new question asks "What was the nickname given to the B-29 bomber in WW2?" Correct answer is given as "Flying Fortress"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong. The Flying Fortress was the B-17, the B-29 was the Superfortress - which is not even in the list of possible answers . How on earth did this one get passed? Even if you have never heard of the B-17, one of the most famous warplanes in US history, one click on Google would have given you the correct answer.

which element is not found in strands of DNA?
A
G
X <- Marked correct
T

Although one can refer to a constituent of a set as an element, the question would perhaps be better phrased if asking: "Which nitrogenous base is not found in strands of DNA?", as to not confuse element with chemical element.

Not only in the U.S.A.
It also has 8 sides in France, and I'm inclined to think it's the same in most (if not all) of the E.U.
IIRC, countries as varied as Brunei, Sri Lanka, and Tanzania also sport an 8 sided stop sign.

I'm guessing it isn't the case where you live though, so I do agree that specifying a country for the question would remove any possible ambiguity.
W1 - Kalann
W2 - Azanael
W3 - Haakon

Question- Who had the first man made satellite in space first?

Just dosen't read properly, we can probably take it as a given that the first satellite sent into space was man made, so could be simplified to Who launched the first satellite into space?, or Which nation sent the first man made satellite into space?

2 here, 1 bad grammar,

Question- What is "Wrong way" Corrigan is famous for?

The second is in the answer and may be me being pedantic.

Question- What is the 3rd Rock from the Sun?

Answer (marked) correct, A comedy T.V show.

Nothing wrong with that, but one of the answers marked wrong is this...............................................A place where sunburnt aliens live.
Now I like this answer for its humour, but to my mind it could also be true. What do you all think?

I think we are being rather big-headed as a race to believe that humans are the only sentient beings in the universe. But the inhabitants of the third rock from the sun are not alien to us here...

"Which of these countries borders with Croatia?" One of the answers given is Denkmark.

"borders with" is not English - it should say "shares a border with". And Denkmark should be Denmark.
