We hate getting things wrong. That's why we hire fact checkers. But sometimes, things still go wrong and we need to be held accountable - and our fact checkers and writers need to be flogged on a live webcam.

 

Please call shenanigans by filling out the form on this page. We will deliver swift justice, assuming, of course, that you're right.

You know that thing about "countries"?
Superchamp

Yes, we'll lead off with some geography yet again - twice! After Tuesday's quiz, Ashley and Ian both wrote in about Kosovo, and its status as a former Yugoslav country. This is exactly why you hear the phrase "UN member state" so often in our quiz - but this time, we forgot to qualify it that way. For the record, GWD doesn't really care about sovereignty, but we are really glad the United Nations has lived up to its responsibility as Defender of the List. I'm sure there's a whole thing about why Kosovo isn't in the UN - but who am I, fucking John Kerry? That same Tuesday Round 8 made a bit of a hash of a question on state

Beatles, Babies, and Bad Bad Films
Superchamp

Now that a whole new year is bearing down on us, let’s atone for the sins of the past month, shall we? Chase from World of Beer in Belmar reminded us that though, yes, Richard “Ringo” Starkey-Starr has three namesake English kings, we forgot that Paul’s real first name is James, so they’re actually tied! Quite a few people wrote in last week to let us know we’d missed the baby’s head in Dorothea Lange’s suitably depressing Depression photo - there are actually three kids, not two. It just looks like a blanket, you guys… Way

Dear Superchamp, Renault isn’t one of the top four teams in Formula One this season. They’re not even a team. - Four people   Dear people, I can see how the word "teams" might have been a tad confusing, especially since Renault used to be a full-fledged constructor. But to say "four leading constructors and engine-makers" also would have been misleading, I think, as though there were separate standings for the two categories. Besides, we told you the three answers were automakers based in Germany (Mercedes), Italy (Ferrari), and France (yup, Renault), so what did you even write as your answer? -

The Theory of Relative Specificity
Superchamp

Dear Superchamp, Recently, quizmasters have been accepting answers for Harry Potter and Twilight questions with just the overall franchise name and not the specific titles. There are those who are true fans, and it is quite upsetting that a generic answer is taken because the QM doesn't think it matters. - Regina from Darcy's     Dear Regina, There are maybe a couple different factors at play here.     Editorial   For a random example, let's take Cho Chang. If we just slapped her picture into Round 5, every Harry
