Sometimes miners hit lethal pockets of gas which have no odor. They carried a canary in a cage with them, and if the canary died they knew to get out of the mine immediately.

You should remove the word "luxury" and just make the GM answer Chevrolet. That's more widely known than that specific luxury brand is part of GM.

It's not supposed to be super easy. By the way, Cadillac as an answer was super easy. Now, if the question was "Name the smallest Cadillac built back in the 1980's." That would be tough. I think it was called Cimarron or something.

The Cimarron: also known as a Chevy Cavalier with a Cadillac badge and a corresponding price hike. I can't believe ANYONE bought one of those.

For "annual stampede", the only thing that came to mind was the running of the bulls in Pamplona. I knew it didn't fit, but I've heard

Cairo is not biggest city in Africa
+4
Level 84
Apr 17, 2018
It depends on how you measure it. The city proper is only 7.8 million, to Lagos' 13.4 million, but the urban area (according to the UN in 2014) is 18.8 million to Lagos' 13.1 million. Whereas citypopulation.de places Lagos at 17.6 million to Cairo's 17.1 million. Um... well, it's certainly not clear that Cairo isn't the largest city in Africa.
