The ABBA song 'Super Trouper' is a stage artist or performer, usually long experienced, whereas 'Trooper' is usually a mounted policeman in US.

Actually the song refers to a make of stage spotlight (hence "super trouper beams are gonna blind me").

As a young nerd, I noticed allegedly top notch newspapers using "a real trooper" vs trouper.

A friend who got straight A's as a MechE once added "for all intensive purposes" to a paper's title, vs (the clichéd)"...intents and purposes".

The former is lightly acceptable. If I could afford to go s.r. mad, vexing ish like this would be on looong list of causes.

If people wrote "intensive porpoises", word.

Do it.

D'oh! I thought it said former "Krpyton" president, and was like I don't know any other characters than Superman who came from that planet.

Easy. Probably not that many people outside the US watch American football. And more countries have access to video games than a chance to watch the NFL.

Yeah it took me a second, too. I think Hyde is suggesting that the clue for supersonic would be easier to guess if it referenced the Seattle SuperSonics, a defunct basketball franchise that became the Oklahoma City Thunder over a decade ago, rather than "faster than sound". Personally I disagree, I feel the current clue is perfectly clear, and easier to guess than the proposed change would be. I'm not big on sports, though.

American basketball teams are not known as widely as 'faster than sound'.

No it wouldn't have, because no one outside of America has heard of the Seattle Supersonics.

Seriously though, 85% of people got it, and I'd be surprised if more than 40% got it with your proposed clue. Litteraly only americans have a chance to guess it for starters.

I would suggest 'superintendent' as type-in for 'Boss'. But since I am not native English, I might be wrong...

FLOPS stands for floating point operations per second. It's a measure of the speed of computing.

At the risk of starting a conversation about politics, I would suggest that the USA has ceased being a superpower over the past few years. Perhaps an update for this question is order - China? East Timor?
