I actually almost missed the Notre Dame question, and I live barely an hour away from South Bend. Just goes to show I really need to start thinking about colleges; better yet, find out where they're located.

That Journey song always bugged me. Grew up in the suburbs of Detroit and can tell you there is no "south Detroit". Detroit has a east and west side and an area known as southwest Detroit. Apparently Steve Perry wrote it about a suburb called Southfield, which is actually north of Detroit.

There is a University of Notre Dame Australia in Western Australia and New South Wales, and a University of Notre Dame du Lac in Indiana. The quiz question as written is ambiguous and should be accepting New South Wales as an answer.

For the same reason that if you ask "What country is Paris in?" the answer is France and not the US. Paris, Texas, population 24,000 just isn't nearly as important.

Why is Saudi Arabia not there in the first category of the quiz?

The caveat does say only South or Southern but Saudi is just south but in Arab.

Saudi (adj.)

1933, from Sa'ud, family name of the rulers of Nejd from 18c. and of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia since 1932. The name is from Arabic sa'd "good fortune, happiness." With common Semitic national designation suffix -i.

I'm glad to say I've never heard of 'Cartman'

Level 67

Cartman is one of the funniest television characters of all-time, and South Park is one of the funniest (and most incisive) TV shows ever.

The Mexico clue is a tad parochial - it entirely depends where you live as to what is south of the border. If you're in North Korea, it'd not be Mexico.

There is no South Detroit, Detroit lies on the north side of a bend in the Detroit River. South of Detroit is actually Windsor, Canada.

There is a set of communities south west of Detroit, collectively known as 'Down River,' but you shouldn't date guys from there. "Down River Man...." news headlines are Michigan's version of, "Florida Man..."

Is there a southern part of the city of Detroit? Or do cardinal directions stop existing within the municipal limits? Also, it's a song lyric.

I'm going to blame it on the fact that there were questions about US states, but I'm still ashamed that when I read "Russian-occupied region of Georgia" I thought first of Georgia the state not Georgia the country and was very confused
