B: Galapagos Iguanas. He noticed how they varied from island to island. Although, I seem to remember he studied some sort of birds there as well?

I had no idea what barnacles were in my own language so I had to google it. Now I know :)
I'm joining JB with option B as answer on the question.

Well obviously, I suck at this. :-[  But I think it was C: Revolver. Seems like Abbey Road was the last, or one of the last of their albums.

Revolver obvs.

You could've made it harder by asking which of these were recorded first:

A. The White Album
B. Let It Be
C. Abbey Road
D. Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins

See? I would've guessed A: Carbohydrates on your previous question. I didn't respond because I had no idea and didn't want to look like an idiot... oh wait.

For this question- I know there are elements that begin with Z and X (e.g. Zinc, Xenon), and I'm pretty sure there is a Germanium. So, I'll say B: J.

I never watched the show but I recall the media hubbub surrounding the ending. I have a vague memory that it was/might've been C: Don't Stop Believin'.

Oh good grief- it could be any of those. :P  Well, it's probably not orange; I don't recall seeing anything highlighted in orange. I'll say C: Pink, since it, after yellow, seems to be the most noticeable.

Hmm. I know it's not the humps; that's where they store fat, for when food is scarce. It can't be the stomach because that's for digestion, stuff doesn't stay there for long. So, bladder or bloodstream? Of course there is water/fluid in the bloodstream but I don't think it can store much more than it already has.

So the answer has to be C: In its bladder. (Now watch, yer gonna say it's A, B, or D.)

It can drink up to 20 gallons at a time. The hump is used for storing fat, not water.

Hmm. Well I know it wasn't Pandoran; Avatar hadn't been made yet (2008? Somewhere around there). The Harry Potter books were around then, but Muggle can't really be considered a religion. It's just a word for us non-magical people. So- Narnian or Jedi? The Narnia stories are bigger in the U.K. than they are in the U.S. but again, not really a religion, just a place. So my answer is B: Jedi.

I figure if I get all my logic out in the open, it'll make me look smart even if I get the answer wrong. :P

Couldn’t figure out to make this into a question, so here is a fun fact.

A study recently found that there’s a grammar rule that native English speaking people follow without even realizing it.

When describing something in great detail, adjectives are listed in this order when used:
Opinion
Size
Shape
Color
Origin
Material
Purpose

So, while asking someone to hand you the “ugly, little, old, rectangular, brown, Italian, leather notebook” may sound natural….
Asking them for the “Italian, old, brown, little, rectangular, leather, ugly notebook” sounds completely wrong – even if you can’t explain why.
