Couldn't remember Daleks. All I could think of was the guys from StarCon the Daktaklakpak... In my defense I've never once seen an episode of Dr. Who.

I picked the "correct" answer, but how is that correct? What declension is the word "Data" from? Wouldn't the plural of a noun ending -um naturally be -is?

The clue for dingo is appalling. Why not use "native Australian dog", the current clue is highly insensitive.

Yeah I imagined that it was an animal that routinely ate its own babies, not ... that.

Strangely, I agree. Normally, I wouldn't mind but it seems that every time "dingo" is the answer in a quiz, there is a very flip and offhand reference to that tragedy.

I saw it as a reference to the Seinfeld dingo quote...

The Seinfeld dingo quote was a reference to the movie Evil Angels (known as A Cry in the Dark outside of Australia and New Zealand), which was a dramatization of the case surrounding the 1980 death of Azaria Chamberlain.

It's also a band name "A Dingo Ate My Baby" from the show "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".

The clue is referring to Azaria Chamberlain‘s death.

Yep. Immensely tasteless. Quizmaster, you once scolded me for using a word in comments that's considered offensive in the US (but not in Australia, where I live). This is similar, but in reverse. Not cool.

62% of people know who Delilah is but only 32% know Devo...priorities people! I ran through every D name I could think of...Delilah was not one of them.

Perhaps Judi Dench's 'rank' should be changed to Judi Dench's 'title'.
+1
Level 71
Mar 20, 2022
Probably not, since it is her rank. It’s also a title, but it means she’s higher in the order of precedence than your average pleb (like me). So, if we’re ever both at a state function, she gets to sit closer to the Queen. I’m not sure if it’s because she won an Oscar for being in a film for 8 mins, or whether it’s because she’s the whole country’s Nan, but hey, what can you do?

Specifically, she’s a “Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire,” if you will…

City with an elevation of 5,280 feet -> this is a very USA-centred question.

I'd rephrase it in the metric system (or both systems) and hint the region, as there are many high cities around the world.

But 5280 feet has an obvious conversion that is associated with the city. Yes, it is a little US centric, but listing it in meters/km wouldn't be as good of a clue.

The nickname for Denver is literally "Mile high city." Using metric in the clue wouldn't make any sense.

so shouldn't the clue be "city with an elevation of 1 mile"?

No. Why should it be that? It's the same exact thing, but phrased differently - arguably to make it harder - to make that connection first. The clue can be anything the quizmaster wants it to be, really.

But the answer has to start with a D and Denver is known as the MILE HIGH city so it's not just a "high" city. And MILES are measured in FEET, not in meters.
