As a former temporary Texan, I heartily approve of the clue for that state. Especially as today I'm wearing my "I messed with Texas and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt" shirt.

Why does teton work, but grand teton not work?
+5
Level 92
May 6, 2015
2 reasons come quickly to mind:

1 - The clue asks for the range, where Grand Teton is the highest mountain in the range.

2 - Grand Teton doesn't start with a T.

It would if it was in my 4th grade homeroom for roll call.

Teacher: "Teton, Grand?"

Grand Teton: "Present."

Of course, this is an absurd analogy, as a.) it's more of an illustration than an analogy, and b.) no self-respecting mountain would say, "Present" when called. Every one I've ever attended class with said, "Here."

That was easy. But I never heard about Tittie shaped mountains before - which should be an accepted answer btw :P

Actually I'm gonna look them up right now.

How could I forget Tennessee?! Anyway - fourth biggest city in Ohio? Really? Do you guys know the fourth biggest city in Bavaria, Yorkshire or Castilla - La Mancha?
+2
Level 82
Nov 15, 2017
For Bavaria I'd probably guess it by listing those I know after Munich. Similar for T, I knew 3xC, and T is the only one I know besides them.

M*A*S*H fans should know it, since it's where Corporal Klinger was always trying to get back to. Who can forget the Toledo Mud Hens?

But the problem is Ohio is a lot more significant than those besides Bavaria. Just looking at population, Ohio is 5 times bigger than Castille La Mancha and 30 times Yorkshire.

Absolute rubbish, Ohio has approximately twice the population of Yorkshire.

I would say that the namesake of a spanish city was a good enough clue, and I wouldbalso say that the 61% who got it right agree as well. It's the same as with Mount Thor. I'm willing to bet hardly anyone would know if the clule was just the tallest mountain, without the norse mythology.

For once can we have a quiz that isn't so Belize-centric. Just occasionally I'd like to see a bit more variety.

But is it really an improvement? I couldn't Belize my eyes, but this one has an awful lot of Honduras in it.

Tampa is much more central than west in terms of where it is in Florida. Even south would be more accurate I think.

Trinidad and Tobago are to the east of Venezuela. The ABC islands, (Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao) are to its North.

Trinidad and Tobago is due north of Parque Nacional Delta del Orinoco in Venezuela.

Consult a map. The ABC islands are to the North, Isla Margarita is to the Northwest and Trinidad & Tobago are to the West of Venezuela (close to Guyana, actually).

Divantilya, you need to consult a map too as cpgatbyu is correct, T&T is due north of Venezuela - if you travelled south from T&T you would land in Venezuela. Admittedly it is towards the right (east) of the width of Venezuela but doesn't change the fact that it is still north. Perhaps it would have been better for you if the clue read simply 'off the coast of Venezuela'...
+1
Level 65
Aug 22, 2018
Also to the north of Venezuela: Toronto, Tijuana, Tennessee, Texas,Times Square, Tobacco, Tallahassee, Teton, Turks & Caicos, Thunder Bay, Tabasco, Tahoe, Tegucigalpa, Tampa, Toledo (both Ohio and Spain) and Mount Thor.

Not to completely defend divantilya, because he is being pedantic but you can travel from a point on mainland Venezuela (eastern tip of the Paria peninsula) due south and hit Trinidad (western tip of the Cedros peninsula).

I think the bigger issue is how one of the two continents seems to be largely left out. There are two questions about South America and three about Canada. Brazil doesn't get a look in.

I understand putting giving the US the attention in most cases. It makes sense, given so much of your traffic is from the US.

But to *portray* a quiz and sell it to the good people of Jeptunk as encompassing the whole Americas, then to have over 40% of the questions talk *only* about the US, with over 60% of questions dependent on the US and Canada… meanwhile there's only 3 questions about South America (and even then one of those is at the border); now that's just UNFATHOMABLY silly.

This might be the first Quizmaster quiz I've given one star. At this point, I think you're doing this intentionally ;p
