Ahhh usually I can spot a palindrome
+1
Level 61
Jun 24, 2015
But Palindrome doesn't start with an E. I seen the palindrome but was to dim to not figure out Elba. I was looking for another word for palindrome that started with an E.
+1
Level 43
Jun 29, 2015
Yes, but what you were guessing was the "it". Really it should have been punctuated as (quote) "Able was I ere I saw" it (unquote), but that type of clue often takes liberties with punctuation. Anyway, that makes it clearer why the answer was "Elba", not "palindrome".

If you're going to give one fill-in-the-missing-word clue as "The ____ has landed", then instead of "Able was I, ere I saw it", the clue should be "Able was I, ere I saw ___".

So both white and black piano keys were made from ebony? Makes sense, though I learnt something new again.

Historically, blacks were made from ebony, whites from ivory. Now though, they're both mostly made of plastic coated or enameled wood.

Most of the UK do not follow basketball, and a lot of us quizzers are UK based.

If the category had been the letter 'A', I would probably have got purple vegetable.

I always get pulled up on Eggplant, because we call it Aubergine over here.

And it's technically a fruit

Level 72
Sep 22, 2020
The eggplant is botanically a fruit, but "vegetable" is a culinary term and doesn't have a botanical definition. Culinarily, an eggplant is definitely a vegetable.

Level 71

More precisely, it is a berry by botanical definition.

Without giving away a spoiler - The "Able was I..." quote was what Napoleon said when he saw the Isle to which he was to be exiled. It also (when the answer is added to the end) a palindrome (not a spoiler, but a major hint there).

What's the deal with "Elvis has left the building"? Is it from some kind of a tv show, a movie, a song?
+2
Level 77
Jun 24, 2015
I think they always announced it when Elvis had left the building where he made a gig, so people wouldn't just wait for him to come back and ignore the other artists.
+2
Level 77
Jun 24, 2015
Or trample each other trying to get a glimpse of him as he was leaving. After his last song the band would keep playing long enough for him to exit at the back and get away before the fans engulfed him.

Level 76
Jan 22, 2021
Whoa
+2
Level 70
May 15, 2018
I believe the phrase was related to the fact that Elvis did not do encores, so they announced that he had left the building, so people knew not to expect an encore.
+2
Level 67
Jun 17, 2019
I think it is the most repeated phrase in history. Cant think of any others... ow yea maybe houston we a problem and "that's all folks" from looney tunes..
+1
Level 60
Aug 5, 2021
I'm pretty sure the MOST REPEATED phrase in the ENTIRE HISTORY would be "In the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit." Or something along the lines of. Come on. Elvis was popular, but keep a little bit of rationality, will ya.

I simply refuse to believe that nearly 6 out of 10 quiz takers knew Eritrea became independent of Ethiopia in 1993 without cheating.
+4
Level 38
Aug 8, 2015
You would be correct, I didn't know but I still got the correct answer simply because I know that Eritrea is just north east of Ethiopia geographically

I knew it because I've worked with a lot of people from that region.

Pretty simple. What's a country next to Ethiopia that starts with an E? Ignore the 1993 part.

This site is rife with trivia and geography nerds. It shouldn't be that surprising.

^ I learned about Eritrea in the news. Some of us do follow current events. Also, it's not a particularly hard guess: E(thiopia), E(ritrea).

I knew it without cheating. But, I will add, I knew it because of this website on a previous quiz.

Jun 24, 2022
I also didn’t cheat and I usually suck at geography. Just couldn’t think of too many African countries that start with “e.”
+1
Level 68
Sep 15, 2022
I didn't know the year but a lot of people come to this site because they like geography. Eritrea and Ethiopia are right next to each other so it would be a reasonable guess knowing that the answer starts with an E

The Eggplant is called an Aubergine in the UK. Does make that question a tad harder for us Brits. I'd suggest changing it.
+1
Level 67
Jun 17, 2019
Why it is knowledge too to know the english term? Though maybe yea ask for the american name of this purple vegetable. Cause I can imagine your brain skipping it.

It is aubergine in my country too, but I think ( and noticed) not being from the UK gives me more exposure to the american versions of things besides the british ones.

At least a quarter of the answers on this site are like that. And I have yet to see a question require eiffel tower. It is allways just eiffel... I have never heard it used like that so it should not be an acceptable answer, it is not like "tower" is impossible to spell.

Harrow is to Eton what Oxford is to Cambridge... "One of the two most famous boys schools in England" would be more appropriate.

But Harrow does not begin with an E so it's just process of elimination

Level 60
Aug 5, 2021
I'm sorry, but that's just simply not true. Whenever an example of english boys school is mentioned, it is Eton almost every time. I have seen Harrow written down like 3 or 4 times, including you comment.
