Could you accept "heart beat" and "pulse?" They're synonymous with the answer, and after neither worked, I stopped trying alternatives.

In Texas Hold'em you don't get to see the flop for free.

At a minimum you have to match the big blind.

Also, if you have made it to the flop there is no guarantee that you have to pay (any more) to see the turn or the river (if everyone checks).

What's the policy here about La Paz / Sucre?

For me, La Paz is the capital of Bolivia like The Hague is the capital of the Netherlands, i.e. not actually. La Paz is the seat of government, but Sucre is the only official capital city of Bolivia. The Bolivian constitution simply states: Sucre es la Capital de Bolivia.

In my experience, the site regards both as capital cities.

Do you mean both as in La Paz and The Hague? Or both as in La Paz and Sucre?

I think you mean the latter, which begs the question of why the discrepancy between Bolivia and the Netherlands in terms of capital city recognition.

I strongly agree. Jetpunk seems to do something similar with Benin, often parceling out capital (official) and capital (de facto) or something like that. Always struck me as weird and eurocentric to take the Netherlands' word on their capital's location but indicate that other countries' capitals are not where they say they are.

That heart rate question stumped me big time, I could only think of things that made absolutely no sense. IQ? no... Weight? no... Number of bones? Bowling score? Credit score (ouch)? Years until you die?

As far as I know, there is hydrogen in all organic compounds too!

Carbon tetrachloride and carbon disulfide (although I guess debatably so... perhaps we could hash out a more useful/formal definition of organic in this comment thread! :D).

Yes, I guess CF4, CCL4 and the CFCs would be organic molecules without hydrogen. CS2, as well as CO2, I don't think so.

I thought King Charles should be obvious. What country famously stole a bunch of valuables from Africa? The UK, of course.
