356 is UConn, 357 is butler, and 359 is Commonwealth.|
355 is not the national anthem. I'm more or less looking for a song that pictures a slave scene, and the Star-Spangled Banner was at Fort McHenry, yada yada yada.
358 is not Mississippi. Yes, both are magnolias, but the flower is the genus "Magnolia" and the tree is the species "Magnolia grandiflora" or the Southern Magnolia. You can argue that there are 20 other species that are also the state flowers Only one state has flower/tree with the same genus/species.
For 360, one is an abbreviation, and one is a place name.
For 225, both terms are 7 letters long.
How about this? The website will go up when all the answers are given. You now get more time, but the website will still come up.

207- Stab in the dark. Reunir can mean "to get", "se" is a personal pronoun that I guess could mean "her" (or "him" or "you formal"), and reunirse means "to get together." So it's "to get her" and "to get together" which is sort of cool.|

I am stumped on these last ones|

Last weeks are done, and I'm glad. This was an awesome set. For those who don't get it, the answers were the 4 teams in the Final Four (UConn, Butler, Kentucky, and Virginia Commonwealth) along with the phrase NCAA. Hidden theme. |
207 is that. My intended answer was that it translates to "to get together" which when written all together, it starts with TOGETTOGET, which is a repeating set of 5 letters. Yeah, it was oddly worded and answered, but at least it's done.
Six new questions on Monday. The reason why? I had 4 new questions, and I didn't come up with 2 more until day. I'm slack, what can I say? And three of them are "what do they have in common". I'll have 6 good ones next week, promise.
361. The white dogwood, the forsythia or golden bell, and the azalea are flowers that share what distinction?
362. Take a word that is a type of plastic. Switch the 5th and 8th letters, and then make the new 5th letter a space. You now get a 2 word object that its shell is usually made of plastic. What are the objects?
363. What do these companies have in common? Citigroup, Kellogg, Macy’s, AT&T, Visa, Sprint, and US Steel.
364. Caesar Rodney, George Washington, James Monroe, the Wright Brothers, Neil Armstrong, Abraham Lincoln, Helen Keller, Lewis and Clark, John Muir, King Kamehameha are the only people to hold what distinction?
365. Take a word that might describe a germ. Rearrange those letters, and you get a word that might describe a shape. What are the words?
366. ‘Anywhere’ is the only 8-letter word in what world renowned book?
