I’d argue with the Titanic question being easy. Me being a 12 year old kid (and a lot of JetPunkers being younger), we couldn’t care less about actors and whatnot so wouldn’t know anything about them.

Eh, I’ve never seen Titanic and I still got it. There’s always going to be a group who doesn’t know the answers to certain questions, but for the general population I’d say it’s pretty easy.

It's still pretty easy, being one of the most famous and influential movies of all time. Just because you can't get it immediately doesn't mean it's not easy.

The "moon" clue is going to throw a lot of people from outside of North America. It even took me a while, and I used to live over there.

true, the only answer i didn't knew. I even read both words out loud afterwards and still dont think they rhyme, no matter how I pronounce them

Level 82
Jan 13, 2023
I'm not North American and they still rhyme for me. Curious as to how people are pronouncing 'dune' to make it not rhyme!

In the UK at least, 'dune' and 'June' essentially sound the same and I think both clearly rhyme with moon.

Yes, while the intial vowel is different in British English (/dʒ/ not /d/, the vowel sound is still the same (/uː/), so it's a rhyme, while perhaps seeming less obviously one.
+3
Level 66
Feb 13, 2023
I think people might pronounce moon with a strong /u:/ vowel and dune (regardless of the consonant) with a /y:/ vowel

Level 77
Feb 15, 2023
I was thinking of words that ended in 'oon', but the only one that had remotely to do with sand was 'lagoon'. Of course it didn't work. Never occurred to me that the rhyme could be spelled differently.

I don't have a phonetic keyboard so I can't give you the IPA transliterations, but dune (pronounced something like djyoon) definitely doesn't rhyme with moon in British English
+2
Level 83
Jan 14, 2023
British English: /djuːn/, /dʒuːn/ (dune), /muːn/ (moon). The vowel sounds are the same so it's a rhyme.

Poor question anyway, no wonder why it's the least guessed of the quiz.

Doesn't "is" kind of imply that it's alive?
+1
Level 62
Feb 13, 2023
It would, but the question as written uses “What’s”, which could viably be interpreted as either ‘what is’ or ‘what was’.
+5
Level 77
Feb 15, 2023
No. 'What's' can either mean 'what is' or 'what has', but never 'what was'.

It's not a geographical difference; they have slightly different meanings. A school of the same fish or a shoal of mixed species of fish.

If you're going to assert something is wrong on a technicality, you should really make an effort to support your assertion. I'd genuinely like to know what the issue is.

According to the Wikipedia article on "Chess pieces", there are multiple definitions for the phrase. One is just an indicator for any "chessman" on the board, and another (most commonly used during play or when discussing games/theory) indicates any of the chessmen on the board that aren't pawns. So the original commenter is right in some contexts, but wrong in this one.
