At least the original title. I didn't realise but it has been published in some languages under the title Odysseus. My fault, should have checked that. The question could be changed to say "Odyssey", or if that's too close perhaps "Iliad". Quizmaster?
Explanation: It was the 1916 Easter Rising
This seems to be explained sort of sideways. The 1916 Christmas Rising was actually an insurrection against the 1916 Easter Rising?
Shouldn't the explanation be something like, "There was no '1916 Christmas Rising.' The insurrection against British Rule in 1916 was the 'Easter Rising.' "?
The question seems to be deliberately misleading, as though the "1916 Christmas Rising" was a historic event and the question revolves around what triggered it. Why not say, "The 1916 insurrection against British rule was known as the 'Christmas Rising'."? Then the explanation would make perfect sense as is.
Super quiz though, much enjoyed.
The fact that this is even an issue is facepalm inducing.
Happy St Patrick's Day everyone!
The 1916 Christmas Rising was an insurrection against British rule
Both answers are correct. Since there was no 1916 Christmas Uprising, you're asking a question about the null set (a set with no elements). Everything is true (and false) about an element of the null set.
So if one of the questions said "Dingboff Zapadoo was a president of Ireland", would that be both true and false because there was no Dingboff Zapadoo?
