Taking this quiz, I wished I had a New Yorker looking over my shoulder - just to click "same," and watch them get totally triggered!

I'm a New Yorker, and if I saw you do that, I wouldn't get triggered, I'd just think you were ignorant.

4% of quiz takers thought Jackie Chan was Bruce Lee? That’s just straight up illogical.

And Cassius Clay and Muhammad Ali being the same person is? 🤷‍♂️

If you’ve no interest in those fields of knowledge, then answering questions on them amounts to no more than just random guesswork.

This one had a few points of more general historical and political significance.

Well why would a famous Hong Kong person with an anglicized first name change it to a different anglicized first name? AND change their last name to another common Hong Kong name? Not to mention that they’re both obviously stage names, so why would someone have two well-known stage names?
+2

I think there are many logical scenarios where a Clay becomes Ali or vice versa. Religious conversion, keeping ethnic or religious background private in your stage name, etc. if you don’t know them, it’s 50/50. I think this is not the case with Chan and Lee.

I have no interest in boxing yet knew the Ali one. It's called general knowledge.

As for the Lee/Chan one, I also have no interest in their movies, but one's been dead for decades, the other one's still alive. I'd say this one's a lot more obvious.

Super quiz, some really good options here and I did much worse than I expected to! Bruce Lee/Jackie Chan seems a little out of place though perhaps...

Big cats always especially confuse me - mountain lions/cougars/pumas/jaguars/leopards/panthers :S

Guangzhou and Canton should be different, Canton is the province while Guangzhou is a city in Canton (aka Guangdong)

Good quiz idea and great questions. I guessed there may be some tiny differences between donkeys and wild asses due to domestication, but fair enough, they're the same thing.

I was rather expecting it to be even more so: If "Virgin Birth" and "Immaculate Conception" had been one of the questions, it would be a trap for an amazing number of people who think they're the same.

Really, 2 questions makes something too biased? This quiz is far more zoologically biased, one should complain about that instead.

Are not Pumas and Cougars different things? Cougars are a species of puma they are not the same thing.

Donkeys are not asses, ass is the common name for the sub-genus Equus Asinus and donkeys are the subspecies Equus Africanus Asinus.

So donkeys are asses but asses aren't donkeys and the same goes for cougars and pumas.
