    I got one wrong (CV = Currculum Vitae). It appears to be a Layin reference to what I know as a résumé. But what did you expect? I'm an American and that's from a dead foreign language, and I did get FIFA correct.. Oh well, C'est la vie...

      Actually, Latin is not a "dead" language. Knowing latin can help you derive the meaning of many of today's latin-based words, as well as the scientific names of species. Its also used daily in Catholic liturgy, and papal decrees. A good deal of legal jargon is latin phrases. Even though it may not be the spoken language of any current country, it is still a viable part of our own language for other purposes.

      Not only is Latin not a "dead" language, it's the official language of Vatican City. All the "romance" languages are derived from Latin - and if you're thinking about becoming a doctor, study Latin & Greek. Virtually all medical terminology is based on those two languages.

    10/10 in 1min 4sec. Damn thing probably would've been quicker if the internet connection wasn't so slow at resolving the next question box. Prolly could've gotten under a minute; maybe under 55sec. Possibly under 50 on a good quick run. Kinda tempted to run through again just to see if I can do it quicker...although knowing my luck the questions will all be for "acronyms" (and I put that term in "scare-quotes" because not all of the entries in this quiz are actual 'acronyms' - an acronym spells out a word, if not an actual dictionary defined 'word' then a largely 'phonetically pronounceable' utterance which follows on from first letter to last, including each letter in the overall enunciation) that I have no knowlege of.

      Rovender Sorry, I didn’t realize we were being graded on our grammar and punctuation in our comments. Do you just troll thru what everybody writes salivating for an error? A missed comma? Misplaced apostrophe? It wasn’t really necessary, was it? Unless you felt some kind of gleeful rush afterwards.
      See what I did there? I started out saying sorry also so that justifies it as okay and I’m smiling so I’m just being helpful and neighborly.
      Oh yeah, erm, great quiz guys!

      Correct her grammar, well l thought l would be so kind to correct you in return, one " kind " deed earns another!
      You didn't just correct her grammar, you completely rewrote her entire comment which is beyond rude in my opinion.
      This is the comment section we each of us is given the opportunity to share our experience if we so choose, yet you instead chose to not only offer your opinion on someone elses opinion but to hijack their words & rewrite the entire script which resulted in it no longer being her comment!! Really quite bizarre & ott which is an abbreviation btw not an acronym.
      May l kindly suggest you take up a craft ,learn a new skill, a new language or perhaps get a pet, something that offers you joy & fulfillment but not at the expense of another?
      Just a caring constructive thought l was compelled to share with you to improve on your comment as that appears to be what you are in to.
      Oh & feel free to dissect my words until your heart is content as l wrote them to & for you, im giftng my entire comment just to you meaning its actually now technically yours.

    TO WEBMASTER: the "SOL" question needs to be REMOVED, or at the very least changed to "all of the following definitions match the acronym below EXCEPT", because at least three of the answers are TRUE [and listed as an acronym on your site]. Possibly "Anonymous" listed "Statute of Limitations" as the "correct" answer because s/he works in the legal field and is most familiar with that definition. People who work in fields [various govt & non-profit agencies, financial, public health, education, sociology, psychology, etc] that deal with socioeconomic status in general and socioeconomically disadvantaged populations in particular are probably more likely to define SOL as "Standard of Living". Since this is an online quiz, one can reasonably infer that most people taking the quiz are familiar with the computer/texting definition meaning "Sh*t out of luck". BOTTOM LINE, it has multiple correct answers and is a BAD question.

      idk… I got it right immediately, and I don’t work in the legal field. I know there were others that made sense, & a few being socially appropriate/correct answers. However, I also knew ‘statute of limitations’ was a more ‘legitimate’ answer—for lack of a better word (kinda ironic, I know. Lol). As opposed to some maybe more widely known/well-used slang words/terms that’ve been shortened, mashed together, compressed, etc. largely for conveniences sake.
      Idk, maybe that’s just me; but after I saw that option, I never even considered choosing a different one. It was simply the correct answer from the moment I saw it was an option.

I remember when we, (USA) and 65 other countries, boycotted the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow because of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in December of ‘79. Then, in the summer of 1984, the USSR responded in kind by boycotting The Olympics in Los Angeles.
