Guinean footballer, Naby Keita (NAB-bee KAY-tuh), who currently plays for Liverpool got the nickname on Merseyside of "Baby Keith" because of how auto-correct handled his name.

Congratulations. I was wondering how you would bring the comments section (of a quiz about an unrelated subject) to America.

Bruh you're the one who brought up the aluminium/aluminum distinction *and* the one who was surprised there weren't complaints about it. It's YOU who brought the comments section to the United States X,D

Well, since you ask, I have a complaint about the wording of that question: Aluminium - or any metal - is first of all an element and doesn't need to be "produced". Any manufacturing would only be involved if the product was an alloy.

yeah i thought that was weird too. I tried steel, brass, bronze, and even pewter before i started trying elements.

Even if it's not technically correct it should still be pretty obvious what the question refers to.

Only the Brits would think of using multiples of 21 for their currency.

OK so I thought it to be weird as you did! The guinea - which I believe got it's name because so much gold came from there - was originally intended to be used as a convenient way to pay interest! A pound then was 20 shillings, so 21 was just a tad over.

But yeah, totally agree with you on the implied chaos of British money. Pre decimalization, I heard, was crazy like

2 farthings --> 1 ha'penny

2 ha'pennies --> 1 penny

12 pence --> 1 shilling

20 shillings --> 1 pound

Why?!

15/16, just missed capital. Guess I know more about Guinea than I thought I did, as seems to be the case with a lot of these random countries in Africa and Asia. For Fula I got it because I used my knowledge of Nigeria to start typing in Fulani, as in Hausa Fulani. Hausa is one of the main ethnic groups in Nigeria, the others being Igbo and Yoruba, and Hausa is the majority in Niger. They're generally Muslim so it made sense here
