I agree. Except for the muppet question which wasn't very fair. I'd have been ashamed to have known the answer.

You'd be ashamed to know a super famous and lovable character who's help teach millions of children the world over? His character and friends on the program have taught inclusiveness and how to cope with some very deep issues that kids shouldn't have to face in this modern world. You should reevaluate your values or at least learn to Google a topic before shaming it.

yea weird comment. I have no idea why you would call the question unfair. Or why it would be shamefull to know the answer (it usually when no sense why people make comments along those lines, that it is shamefull to have heard of certain movies etc. But in this case it makes even less sense.)

But I've never heard the Sesame Street character referred to as "Elmu" or "Elmi." It's a chain game which means that the next answer starts with the last letter of the previous answer. So although Utah and Iowa are states with four letters, those answers would not work given the previous answer.

First, please accept Utah for the state one. Second please accept nice for kind because both are four digits and the same meaning. Great quiz, I wish I would have thought of this!

Dec 22, 2014
This is "word chain" game, not a 4-letter word quiz, so the first letter of each word must be the last letter of the previous one. Since the previous word ends with O, only Ohio is accepted. Utah and Iowa are 4-letter but do not start with O, so I will NOT include these, never.

If I were "British" (always code for the England section of the Isles) and tube were an American term, here is where I would ache and cry like a confused Alzheimer's widow aged 97. Being here to accept the world as diverse, I wouldn't complain, even if I didn't know the answer.

as english is not my mother tongue, could someone explain me how coins can me be made in a vegetable like mint?
+1
Level 67
Aug 14, 2019
A coin is munt in dutch, a mint is the place where coins are stamped, so a coinery. Old english goes back to the same source as dutch, both being germanic languages. English used to have the word munt (mynet, where the y is spoken more like a uu, it was not untill middle english that y would stand for the i-sound) aswell, though allready with the more general meaning "money" aswell.

For all the germanic languages, the word ultimately comes from latin "moneta"

So nothing to do with the plant. The term in mint condition does come from mint as in place where coins are made. When they have been freshly stamped in the mint, they are in mint condition.

Jan 18, 2021
Yeah, The London Underground is known as the Underground and more often The Tube, especially by Londoners, but by almost everyone in London. Exits, however, are signposted 'way out' and also 'exit' in UK English. It certainly is not exclusively one or the other.
