I tried that first, too. But surely the obvious alternative was una instead of uni.

Sodium chloride is just salt in any form. That doesn't seem specific enough to me. (Disclaimer: I missed that question anyway)

Halite is specifically NaCl - sodium chloride.

If you can guess "sodium chloride," you should be able to guess "salt."

Never heard a hole in one called an ace, but it makes sense I guess. Still, Ace can mean a lot of things in many different contexts, both in and out of sports.

fluky - it would [normally] be an eagle!
+1
Level 93
Jul 24, 2018
I tried lucky first. Then tried eagle, albatross and condor but strictly speaking although each could be a hole in one, it depends on the par score for the hole - those are 2,3 and 4 under par respectively. An eagle on a par 3 would be a hole in one but on a par 4 hole would be two shots.

I thought for sure Halite would be related to Halitosis and have something to do with bad breath!

So if you put album in parentheses as part of the clue, and then I type in "WHITE", why doesn't that one autofinish? I typed in "THE WHITE" and when it didn't accept it, I just assumed I was wrong. Kind of silly when so many other of the answers don't require typing in the entire answer before they autofinish.

It's asking for "The White Album" though. If there was a quiz asking for Abbey Road you wouldn't just type in "Abbey" and expect it to auto-complete. I don't know if you expect it to complete because it says (album) in the title but that is just specifying that it's referring to the white album and not the band.

I wonder how much longer Denali will be "also known as" McKinley, now that that Denali has become the mountain's official name. Ironic how it ever got to be named after someone who never even visited the state!

lmao it accepts 'mandy' for mdma

Mar 4, 2019
Well I guess in real life MDMA and ecstasy are generally understood to be two different things (even though technically there should be no difference) so mandy is really the only other alternative name for MDMA from that perspective. MDMA = " pure " crystal form & ecstasy = cut pill form

This might not be the case in the US, but in the UK 'Hole in One' is a golf term, 'Ace' is for tennis.

Nope, "hole in one" is a golf term here as well, but some people do apparently also refer to it as a "ace."

Birdie must be an American thing, I've played Badminton a lot in the Uk and I've never heard anyone call it that. We do call them 'shuttles' although maybe that's too close to be accepted

Fun quiz, not sure about the Kalashnikov answer though. Kalashnikov refers to the series of rifles made around the same style, whereas the AK-47 is just one of many in that range.

It would be the same as same as saying a "Volkswagen" is also known as a "Volkswagen Beetle", whilst every Beetle is a Volkswagen, not every Volkswagen is a Beetle.
