No clue what it's called. And I see it all the time on "Doctor Who."

I am a Canadian and I do not consider myself a canuck. It's like calling someone from Texas or Oregon a Yankee.

Well in other countries (i.e. Australia) they refer to any American as a Yank...just saying

Well in other countries they're wrong about that...just saying.

Agreed. I thought a 'yank' was a rude word for any USA people.

"Yank" isn't rude. It's just a nickname like "Brit" or "Aussie".

To us, a yankee is an American. To an American southerner, a yankee is a northerner. To a northerner, a yankee is from the east cost. To an easterner, a yankee is from New England. To a New Englander, a yankee is from Vermont. To a Vermonter, a yankee is someone who eats pie for breakfast. To a Vermonter who eats pie for breakfast, a yankee is someone who eats cheddar with it. And so it goes.

Why not? I'm Canadian too, and I know it's a common term for Canadians (esp. outside of Canada)

For an English-language quiz, the islands should be the Falkland Islands, also known as "Islas Malvinas", not the other way round.

Bwahaha! I didn't have the faintest idea what the clap thing could be, so I thought I thought maybe it had to do with movies and Hollywood - because of filming clapboards. Hot damn was I far from the truth! :-D

Are extraterrestrial and alien the same thing? Alien means anything foreign, whereas extraterrestrial is specifically anything not on Earth.

The Brontosaurus has been rehabilitated as its own dinosaur, something which I learnt from another quiz on this site. Here's a link to a Scientific American article on the issue: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-brontosaurus-is-back1/

The only thing that I could think of for brontosaurus was thunder lizard, but I don't really remember why that came to mind.

What was he on? That he needed rehabilitation? (Or did he hurt his back or something? Or more likely his neck..)

If you had a alcohol problem you would just call it wine or plonk, none of that fancy stuff.

I tried gonorrhoea but it didn't accept. Then I tried Mary Queen of Scots, and it didn't accept. I thought I was losing it!

I've never tried gonorrhea or any other STD. I don't get what people see in them.

The point that kiwiquizzer, who I assume is from New Zealand, is making as that Americans spell gonorrhoea wrongly. I agree. I so often hear that this is an English language quiz - so accept English spelling. If you wish to accept the US version as an alternative, that's fine, but at least accept gonorrhOea!

Yes please. Jetpunk is usually very good at ensuring non-American English spellings are accepted, so no reason not to do so here. Gonorrhoea is the standard spelling in the UK.

Could you accept Sears on its own since tower is in the clue? When it wasn't accepted I thought I must be wrong and started trying others.

Could you please accept the spelling gonorrhoea? This is how it is spelt in the UK and Australia.

Many thanks!!

The British spelling of gonorrhea makes the disease seem much more malignant, that extra o goes a long way.

Is it possible that "Sears" isn't accepted? Kind of redundant to have to add "tower", when it's already in the hint.

Was hoping that "Chuck D" would work, but alas.
