Quintessentially quirky and quenching queue of quandaries and quizzes! Chris presents his case that 1992 was a golden year of cinema in his Academy Awards quiz. "A man is found dead in a room next to a puddle of water...what happened!?" - play some lateral situational puzzles based on true stories with Karen. Dana found some super weird words, and Colin has a special round of "I Liked Their Earlier Stuff Better." What a hipster, that guy.

Dana's Word Quiz
Oahu is actually an Island not a City...

October 31, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKyler Kokubun

As pointed out above, Oahu is an island, not a city. There is a suburb and a town on Oahu that sort of work for the quiz, however: Aiea (pronunciation) and Laie (pronunciation).

I say "sort of" because while the English/American spellings of Oahu, Aiea, and Laie have 4 letters, the Hawaiian spellings (Oʻahu, ʻAiea, and Lāʻie) have 5. Quick Hawaiian language lesson: That apostrophe-like mark in all three of them is an ʻokina, a consonant in the Hawaiian alphabet. (see: Wikipedia) When speaking and writing in English, both forms of the geographic terms (with/without ʻokina) are acceptable, but when speaking and writing in Hawaiian, ʻokina (and kahakō, the bar above the a in Lāʻie) are required, as omitting them can completely change a word's meaning and pronunciation.

Other fun fact: As far as I know, Aiea (when written without the ʻokina) is the only US city spelled entirely with vowels.
