I have not seen any YouTube communities developing centered around the conspiracy or anti-scientific theory that root beer is alcoholic. Maybe somewhere in the Muslim world, that actually wouldn't surprise me, but not anywhere in Western civilization. The last propositions you mention do, however, have sizeable numbers of people who believe in them, and the first one is a cliche and common misconception.

No they dont. We dont have root beer, I dont know what it is (so we actually might... but dont think so..) I have heard it mentioned though, so i know it is a drink a drink but with the word beer in it makes you think of alcohol, but i believe i ve heard it is something kids drink too. So it is a logical thing to wonder about and want to look up.

I also have lived in many parts of the world (not all countries yet) and I can't recall having ever seen root beer outside of the USA (but I have seen a lot of ginger beer, another kid-friendly "beer"). It may come down to whether you are brought up with it and actively seeking it, so may tend to notice it more. I'll keep an eye out in future.

For root beer all I could think of was alcohol. For humans living with, all I could think of was neanderthals. Some of these seemed to have several possibilities.I scored only 12/22.

Level 75
Apr 19, 2018
I just looked up the numbers, and for root beer, alcohol scored 22,400,000 results, while caffeine scored only 166,000, and alcohol showed up first in my box. When I tried the human question, neanderthals showed up first in my search box, but there were twice as many results for dinosaurs as neanderthals. I wonder if the answers can be different depending on one's search history? I realize you said the results may vary, but I'm not sure where that leaves us trying to get the correct answers if they can change. I still enjoyed the quiz, though.

Level 82
Apr 22, 2018
Why? Men have pectoral muscles so that they can move their arms. They have fat encasing those muscles to afford them some protection, or because they eat too many cheeseburgers. If they have actual breast tissue then something is wrong. On the other hand all normal healthy human males have nipples, but those nipples serve no function.

Level 32
Apr 1, 2019
The fat that may surround a muscle will provide the muscle with energy to contract, rather than the fat providing protection for the muscle.

Also not an expert, but men can and do get breast cancer, so presumably do have breast tissue in some form. Having such tissue does not indicate that something is wrong.

Dinosaurs was my first guess. Maybe I watch too many movies. But I would've never thought of Neanderthals or Homo erectus. I mean they were (archiac) humans too. How would any of these have ever met?

"To have the opportunity to acquire knowledge, a person must first demonstrate that they already have knowledge".

Seems like a Catch-22. It's never wrong to seek knowledge. You yourself probably have several misconceptions which could be easily corrected with the right search.

On the other hand, I would support the requirement to pass a test before being allowed to comment on the internet :P

I only ever heard of Duck Duck Go from someone who worked at my local high school who believed in far right conspiracy theories and was becoming increasingly out of touch with reality. Whenever I questioned this person’s odd views, they just said I needed to use Duck Duck Go instead of Google. I think they might’ve been fired for spreading hate speech to children. Anyway, long story short, I get the impression that Duck Duck Go is probably not a great thing.

A lot of right wingers have misguided reasons for their commitment to DuckDuckGo, but mostly that's not the fault of DuckDuckGo. Your argument is sort of a guilt by association fallacy. Google does it's job pretty well, but it is also in a position to abuse it's access to information. Choose wisely, not based on a reaction to someone else's choice.

A journalist asked Tim Cook why iPhones are so expensive.

"Well", he said, "that's because the iPhone replaces a whole bunch of devices. A phone, a camera, a watch, a music player, a video player, a PDA, a voice recorder, a GPS navigator, a flashlight, a calculator, a portable gaming console, and many other things. Surely, a high price is worth paying to replace so many devices!"

"Then why are Androids so much cheaper?", asked the journalist.

"Because," said Tim Cook, "an Android replaces just one device. The iPhone."

Living in Finland I was totally helpless with the root beer question, because that product is unknown to me. Like someone else said, "beer" automatically makes you think alcohol.

Also the last question was impossible, since I had never heard of "DuckDuckGo" (and I work with IT!)

Dinosaur question was simple knowing that the quiz was probably made in the US. Also the Scotland question (and no, in my thinking it is NOT a real country, because it is not a sovereing state; for a European those two words are synonymes).
