Aortic should be accepted for aorta

Level 51
Jun 27, 2014
But "aortic" would seem to be an adjective, as in "aortic valve". The question plainly wants a noun, hence "aorta".

If I would learn more about Soccer, Twilight, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Bon Jovi I would ace the vast majority of these quizzes. I simply don't have it in me to study it.

I can safely say that very few of our quizzes have anything to do with Bon Jovi. :)

There is no such thing as too many Big Lebowski references.

Bon Jovi did seem like the odd one out on that list. Would be more useful to study up on Game of Thrones, American sports, alcoholic beverages, the Simpsons and Pokemon, in addition to Soccer those are the questions I often miss myself.

Level 75

So this quiz must have changed in the 3.5 years since Beasy's comment. There's exactly one question on any of those in this quiz, and even that one gave a non-soccer clue as a backup.

Though I can empathize with the sentiment, not having ever watched GoT or Twilight or following soccer/futbol.

If I only knew anything about American football, European football, rugby, baseball, US politicians, classical music, basketball, math, American brands, prestitigious movies, actors, US counties, the French language, the Spanish language, the Olympics, literature, Marvel, DC, British monarchs, Minecraft, airports, ice hockey, baby names, international trade, the military, legal jargon, medical jargon, Sponge Bob Squarepants, the Beatles, elite universities, boy bands, archaic English vocabulary, rappers, Christmas songs, Hunger Games, Shakespeare, acronyms, Roman emperors, recent Disney movies, tennis, Queen, junkfood and the Kardashians I would so ace this site.

1. What is it with never allowing us to complete a word ending in "h"?

You constantly cut off Riyadh at Riyad and now you've cut off

Ayatollah at Ayatolla! - (and there are others which I can't recall at

the moment) It is maddening!

2. Isn't an Armory also a storage place for weapons?

Level 57

Yes, armoury is another word for arsenal, but I haven't heard of a football team called Armoury

You're absolutely right. I forgot the second part of the question!

May 25, 2022
I mean the h is silent in Riyadh and (depending on your accent) in Ayatollah so I think it's fine

Did you know the site also accepts Abu Dabi without the H? Did you know its real pronunciation is Abu Thabi (th pronounced like in "that" but thicker) or Zabi, depending on your accent as well
