I´m not a native English speaker. Therefore I wrote "tissue" for the contract question and it did not count. Is a tissue and a napkin not the same thing? :D

You blow your nose on a tissue and wipe your mouth with a napkin - although I remember once dating someone who thought they were interchangeable.

I’m English (uk not usa) and I would have to agree they are the same. Tissues tend to be a bit thicker but it depends on the ply of the napkin/tissue.

Don't like the subjective questions here - the diving one and the Ronaldo one are opinions rather than facts.

Ronaldo being his greatest rival is mostly a fact at this point, the two are endlessly compared. That being said I think this quiz could use more/higher quality questions. So many more trivia based options like how many UCL titles, domestic titles, Balor d'ors, best goalscoring season, etc

Messis biggest rival in terms of Ballon d'Or awards and top goalscorer titles has usually been CR7, so I'd say the question is perfectly fine. 97% guessed Ronaldo....

the other one is more subjective, but Messi is not known for diving, so yeah...

You really should accept dive/simulate as an alternative for diving. Tried dive a couple of times thinking for whatever reason I was getting the spelling wrong.
