Capital-S Southern Alberta? Otherwise you'd have to say Calgary is biggest in small-s southern Alberta.

The only way to make that clue reasonable is "largest city south of Calgary."

Agreed. The clue is inaccurate with a lowercase "s," but accurate with an uppercase "S."

Lethbridge? You must be joking! Sarah Palin could see USA from there.

I always thought that French-speaking countries of the Americas are not considered a part of Latin America - I might be wrong about the French Caribbean and French Guiana, but I am pretty sure I am right about the Francophone Canada and St Pierre et Miquelon.I recommend you change the "Romance language" clue to "Spanish and Portuguese".

The latin america one is a little bit vague, French and English are also romance languages.

French is but English isn't. The core of English is of Anglo-Saxon origin. It took heavy influence from Norman French later and evolved over time but it is still classified as a Germanic language.

Nope. English is a Germanic language.

In a quiz ostensibly covering two continents, it is not necessary to have two thirds of the questions all about one country!

Fill us in on other L-places that would be known to a wide sampling of English speakers here.

Of the 13 of 21 that are in the U.S., 3 are Spanish names, 2 are French and 1 is Italian.

I can think of nary another south of the U.S. that hasn't been included.

the capital of Argentina's most populated Province is "La Plata", Perú's capital is "Lima", the spanish name for "Andes Mountains" is "Los Andes". There, you can have 6 out of 21, rather than 2 out of 21 questions with South America only, and that's just at the top of my head. Also, there are around 50 other countries that I'm sure have other "L" named cities, lakes, and other.

If the US didn't exist, the world's economy would not exist.

But if Canada didn't exist, much of the glaciers in the world wouldn't exist as well.

If Brazil didn't exist, the world would starve.

If Colombia didn't exist, thousands of species wouldn't exist.

And so on.

My point is that there is no such thing as more important country, they're all important in their own way.

Therefore, it is RIDICULOUS the way JetPunkers say that the quiz is US centric because it is more important. It may be economically, but that doesn't mean you can just do quizzes about "The Americas" and simply not consider everywhere else.

I post this as a sincere comment, because I'm not using JetPunk anymore because of this US centrism.

You're not forced to change. But I know you care about the quality of your site, and I know you won't ignore this comment like every other!

Thank you!

All these impassioned complaints about US-centrism on JetPunk are so bizarre. I totally understand wanting to leave feedback and be heard, but it always feels a bit absurd.

It's like if you were walking down the street and someone hands you a free lemonade, but you break down in tears and start screaming because it's not strawberry lemonade.

This a high-quality free-of-charge website for trivia quizzes, just chill.
